DAMP PROOFING, WATERPROOFING & PAINTING PROJECTS

“Peace of mind” is the theme whenever the Lyleste team arrives at your premises. We take the time to inspect the premises and establish the full extent of the job before we quote you, whether it be waterproofing, damp proofing or painting. This way we can ensure to provide you with a quality solution at the best possible price – without the need to cut corners or make compromises. This means that you do not have to chase us up afterwards and listen to stories and excuses. If we missed something, we fix it!

Below, you will find a handful of projects that we have undertaken with photos showing you how we solved the client’s need and the end result.

RUST TREATMENT & PAINTING

Roof 1: Cottage

The steel roof was completely faded and had minor rust spots, whereas the barge was badly rusted. We sanded off all the rust, coated it with a water based rust converting etch primer and once dry, painted 2 coats of roof paint.

Roof 2: Main house

We sealed all the ridge caps with a waterproofing slurry. After cleaning the roof, we painted the entire roof with a coat of a waterproofing sealer and finished off with two coats of pure Acrylic roof paint.

DAMP PROOFING & PAINTING

We were called to assist the client restore the Voortrekker Building in Kempton Park. There were extensive problems with rising damp which had resulted in damage to existing walls and paint. In addition, the reddish paint had faded significantly in the sun and needed to be completely re-done.

We did an extensive damp proofing repair job on the walls to treat the damage caused by the rising damp and to treat the walls to prevent future damage. Next, we started the painting of the walls with a lighter off-white colour to restore a more classic feel to this historic building.

WATERPROOFING & PAINTING

We were called to a residential property in Illiondale, Edenvale, to inspect a tiled roof that was in need of repair. It quickly became clear that no maintenance had been done for a very long time. In fact, we were informed that it was 20 years since the roof was last seen to.

The roof was leaking and very brittle, so we had to exercise extreme caution in the way we planned and executed the repair project. We rejuvenated the roof by first waterproofing it and then treating and painting the roof tiles. The project was completed in 48 hours from start to finish, leaving a very satisfied client admiring the beautiful new roof.

WATERPROOFING & PAINTING

This property had been painted just 3 – 4 years before we were called on to assist. Water was coming through the roof and causing water damage in many places, despite the relatively recent maintenance work.

Our inspection soon revealed that the parapets had not been sealed correctly and that an expansion joint was needed to prevent horizontal cracks as shown in the photos. We created the required expansion joint by cutting a straight line through the plaster and filling it with joint sealant, we then stripped the plaster in many places and resealed the property walls and roof to ensure that the property was protected properly against future damage.
