Manor house returned to glory with TeknosPro coatings

TeknosPro’s coatings were used to transform the front door of an old manor house so that the beautiful building now has the entrance it deserves. The 140-year old house is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Ranmore Common, Surrey Hills. Part of the door’s exterior had to be replaced before it could be repainted as the wood was rotten. The joints of the front door were then filled with high quality resin to prevent cracking from movement so the area was fully prepared prior to coating.

Two coats of Teknos ANTISTAIN AQUA primer were applied by an airless spray system to minimise the yellowing of the door, followed by39141 two coats of FUTURA AQUA 40 The paneling on the frame surrounding the door featured beading which had to be painted by hand, due to its small scale, to ensure the coatings were able to get into the grooves. The varying methods of application reflect the versatility of TeknosPro paints. The coatings are also designed to withstand the elements, and so will keep the front door of the manor house looking beautiful for years to come. 

The project was undertaken by Nick Sammut, a professional painter and decorator from Surrey-based Rushmoor Painting & Decorating. Rushmoor Painting & Decorating was formed in 2016.
