Innovating refurbishment for the ease of maintenance

Property investment often entails some element of refurbishment as restorative projects not only enhance the value of a building and support their longevity but also attract potential future investors and stakeholders.

Re-painting to prolong the building’s lifespan One of the most effective ways to inject a new lease of life into an existing building is with a fresh coat of paint. However, in addition to giving the façade an immediate facelift, the process of re-painting brings with it other resultant benefits.

To begin with, a fresh looking exterior immediately projects kerb appeal and a positive image bringing emotional and financial value to existing owners and occupants whilst arousing interest and demand amongst those looking in from outside. Regular maintenance is not only cost effective in the long run but also prolongs the lifespan of a property. This in turn drives higher occupancy and enhances resale and rental value.

Furthermore, with the increasing emphasis on environmental sustainability, re-painting provides a golden or even green opportunity to employ new eco-friendly products that cater to the wellness of occupants and the environment.

In a tropical climate like ours, structures are exposed to extreme weather and high humidity.

Thanks to moisture and airborne water vapour, building exterior walls can suffer from shrinkage and debonding of their external render, resulting in water seepage, algae and mould. Combined with airborne dust, environmental pollution and acid rain, the eventual deterioration of a building’s exterior is a foregone conclusion.

To preserve the health of exterior surfaces, the new improved formula of Nippon Paint Weatherbond with sun proof, rain proof and antifungus features presents a long-term protective shield against the adverse effects of extreme weather, including efflorescence, as well as, fungal and algae growth.

Equipped with a 7-year warranty, its new improved weather resistant solution clothes the paint with greater durability, and promises long-lasting colour to defer the need to re-paint.

Re-waterproofing to protect the building

Effective re-waterproofing is another essential element that protects a building’s structural integrity and preserves its value.

Water leaks and mould on exposed concrete flat roofs are common issues faced by property managers, such problems could be addressed and resolved with re-waterproofing treatment by using Nippon SM Bitumen M3000/M4000. It is an ideal solution for remedial re-waterproofing work on sizeable exposed concrete flat roofs.
