When the time came to repaint the exterior woodwork and metalwork of Brook Mill, a 19th century spinning mill converted into upmarket apartments, the residents and their managing agents insisted that the high performance Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra system was to be used. Brook Mill, located in the unique award-winning Eagley Mills conservation area on the outskirts of Bolton, is one of an impressive complex of textile mill buildings to have been given a new lease of life as residential and commercial premises.
James Dickinson of Classic Decorative Finishes Ltd of Preesall admits that the actual logistics of painting the huge elevation of Brook Mill was ‘challenging’, but he has nothing but praise for the coatings specified for the project: “First of all we were pretty impressed by the state of the existing paint film. We expected that after eight years there would be a lot more cracks and flaky peeling patches to sand down especially on the south facing elevation, but it was in very good condition.
James concluded: “When it came to the coatings we could not have wished for a better spec. Having seen for myself the finish that is achieved, and knowing how well my men got on with the paint system, I have no hesitation recommending it to other clients in the future.”
