Stokoe House, Market Place, Alston
The Stokoe House is in the historic market town of Alston in Cumbria, which is in the North Pennines. This three-storey property consisted of previously painted smooth render and lime washed rubble stone. We specified using KEIM Algicid to treat mould and fungal growth, followed by a 10mm thickness of KEIM Universal Render and KEIM Glassfibre Reinforcing Mesh for the patch repairs on the front elevation. Once the render had dried out for a minimum of 15 days, a three-coat application of the KEIM Royalan system was used to provide a high light reflecting matt appearance, which remains bright and vibrant, even on dull days.
