As a painter, I could not possibly leave my own house in its former state. The facade, though robust, was marred by an ugly pattern of facing bricks. Our first move was high-pressure cleaning of the façade, followed by a thorough covering with a solid cement base. Then the entire exterior of the house surrendered to the enveloping embrace of three coats of Caparol's kalei, applied using scaffolding and loaders. The end result? The house shone as never before in its renewed splendour and glory.
