We recommend that the walls, masonry ceilings and soffits are prepared by removal of plaster / paint (where present) and the masonry surfaces prepared using mechanical needle gunning / scarifiers to provide a suitable key.

The walls shall then be tanked using NKP Construction high performance render base coat consisting specially selected, dry grade aggregate, waterproof concrete, which provides a rapid setting, high strength render to prevent water ingress. The walls shall then be treated with NKP Construction SWS chemically modified tanking system, prior to the application of NKP Construction waterproof renderings.

The waterproofed walls will then be replastered using the NKP Construction replastering finish to provide a smooth finish.
