Plaster cladding systems including stucco, E I F S Polystyrene, Fibre Cement Brick/block render and AAC Panel can and will show some form of cracking during its lifetime, whether it be due to hairline, seismic movement or mechanical damage. These will require attention to maintain weather tightness and coating integrity.
Alongside these repairs the use of a suitable paint system is of the utmost importance to ensure maximum durability of the total cladding.
Most good quality acrylic paints have an average life span of between 8-9 years before re-coating (dependent on colour) due to a very high UV content in New Zealand.
PLASTERCARE NZ LTD only uses the latest repair systems and elastomeric coatings for these purposes.
