The NHBC sought our expert advice and technical knowledge for Blue Mills in Fowey. These apartments had cracks appearing at internal corners and the render bulging and debonding at floor levels. It became clear that frame movement was an afterthought, along with inadequate size, layout and fixing of the timber battens. It was agreed with the NHBC to replace the failed system with ProWall; our industry leading rendered rainscreen cladding system. An approved applicator rectified issues with the battening and cavity, and re-finished the building to a high standard with a quality silicone finish.
