New to My Builder - not new to the industry! Professional firm specializing in external rendering and decorative surface finishing, Damp Proofing and internal refurbishment. Fully trained and accredited with high levels of service.
- Damp Proofing Specialist
We have completed numerous external rendering works on new build projects for large and established National house builders and developers, such as Mcann Homes; Higgins; Bellway; Bovis and Lakehouse. We are frequently employed to do this work. We have also been retained for delicate Period Restoration works in France with St.Astier. And I've lost count of how many successful dampproof surveys, reports and recovery strategies we have completed.

Internal and External Machine Plastering and Rendering: Traditional sand and cement rendering; Lime rendering; Monocouche rendering; External Wall Insulation, Thin-coat acrylic render, External Rainscreen Cladding, External Brick-slip cladding ... and many other specialist, decorative finishes.
As a qualified damp-proofing technician, we carry out full damp surveys, producing a detailed written report and full recovery strategy. We carry out detailed and accurate ambient air psychometrics for the control of humidity and we install fully controllable HRVUs in strict accordance to precise calculations as defined in Part F.
I've personally trained and worked in Germany (and France and Spain). We carry out internal refurbishment with projection plasters such as MP75 and MP Finish as well as Heritage Conservation Approved materials, systems and techniques. We also float and set with traditional building products such as Hardwall and Finish.
We also pump self-leveling anhydrite screeds (with 8X higher thermal conductivity for better energy saving) and install multiple zone underfloor heating systems and other energy saving installations as part of our service.
