The team at Fassa Bortolo were recently contacted by award-winning building, surveying, architectural and property management specialist, 3Sixty Real Estate, to provide a solution that would protect and weatherproof a high-end, luxury home in Bristol. The property was originally designed by renowned Bristol-based architect, Hartland Thomas in 1935 and was in need of modernisation.
Following the specification process, cycle 3C from the Fassarend system was selected to ensure a quality finish. This cycle includes a cement undercoat (SP22), followed by a lime and cement base coat (KC1), Fassanet reinforcing mesh and a primer (FX26) with a texture coat (RX561). The nature of the raw materials used in the formulation gives the surface a rustic appearance, which well suited the aesthetic of the property.
DE Price Plastering was contracted for the project, who chose to work with local distributor, Woodman Brothers Construction Supplies Ltd, who has 25 years’ industry experience and is a dedicated supplier of Fassa Bortolo products.
Darren Price, director DE Price Plasterings, commented: ‘We’ve worked with Fassa Bortolo on many projects as the company offer a great range of products which are all extremely easy to use no matter what the requirements are. As well as this, the customer service is excellent and there is always someone available to contact who is willing and able to meet our requirements.’
He added: ‘Woodman Brothers have a good knowledge of the render industry combined with a vast stock of Fassa Bortolo products, making them the go-to distributor for all of external façade related jobs.’
