Baumit metallic-finish façade paint has helped to transform a former office building into a three-bedroom property in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex. The project has shown how a high-specification topcoat can lift a building’s aesthetic look.
Baumit metallic paint in bronze was applied to a box elevation and a gable projection on the detached property, which was built in place of a demolished office block. The ready-to-use paint, which is machine or hand-applied, was used to accentuate the façade’s imaginative ashlar and diamond-effect design and fulfil the client’s ‘copper cladding’ specification. The metallic paint’s tone neatly complements the yellow-glazed bricks which are part of new home’s frontage,
As well as its metallic paint, the project utilised Baumit render for Uplands’ balcony projections.
