Dry rot, damp, mould and other horrors can ruin a home, especially an older, or even historic building. Over the years many methods and tricks have been tried out to locate dry rot in houses, but as the damage is often hidden, how do you find dry rot without ripping the place apart?

Step forward man’s best friend and dry rot’s worst enemy: Damp dogs.

Yes, I am being serious, and April fool’s day was ages ago.

There now exists companies who locate dry rot, often hidden in large buildings, by ignoring modern technology and gadgets, and using dogs instead…..At first glance, yes it does sound a bit of shaggy dog story, but it’s true, so let’s look at the work of dogs in locating dry rot.

Pebbledash! A passing fad and a cheap wall covering that house builders used to use to cover up poor quality brickwork, but times change and many people want to change their pebbledash wall coating to something a bit more contemporary and up-to-date.

This is where the NEVER PAINT AGAIN exterior wall painting system can help you.

We have specialised in repairing and painting pebbledashed homes up and down the country since 1986 and we know our stuff, so let us guide you through what can be done about a pebble dashed house, by showing you a recently completed project, located in Croydon, Surrey.

Pebbledash can be a right nuisance.

Not only does, in most cases, look terrible, bland, dull and dirty, you can’t paint it (not with a paint brush anyway), the stones fall out and leave the render behind susceptible to the weather, and having it replaced is not only expensive, but usually entails 2 to 3 weeks of hell….

So why not consider the Never Paint Again pebbledash painting system instead?

Plymouth airport. Help me get it reopened, for the benefit of the whole region, connecting us to the world. This HAS to happen and we have to resist the greedy ba*stards at Sutton Harbour Holdings who want to flood our city with more and more cheap homes to line their own pockets. #plymouth #airport #aviation #travel #devon http://www.plymouthherald.co.uk/airport-can-reopen-and-offer-holiday-flights-says-plymouth-businessman/story-30190361-detail/story.html

Does the outside of your house need painting yet again? Exterior house painting is what we do best, (of course!), and it is certainly what we have taken immense pleasure and pride in since 1986.

Unlike your typical “Jobbing Builder”, repairing, making good and then painting the external walls of your home is the only thing we do, and we are darn good at it too, just ask our customers.

They will tell you that NPA is Britain’s number ONE wall coating specialist, and they often recommend us to friends and neighbours because of our track record and experience since 1986.

People trust us with their homes, which is why year on year we continue to exceed all of our customers expectations, and more besides.

However, instead of me telling you how good we are (LOL), we thought that the best way to show you the high quality work we do each and every week of the year, was to describe, in text and photos, an interesting example of our work.

The property in question being this lovely bungalow in Derbyshire.

The roads and streets of Plymouth, Devon, have become a national laughing stock, a legacy from the idiot Tudor Evans and AMEY, the contractors who have obviously given brown envelopes full of cash to be allowed to ruin our streets. No more speed humps, no more traffic light, no more dangerous obstacles in the roads, remove the flippin lot. Plymouth city council have INCREASED POLLUTION and have CAUSED CONGESTION by what they have done to our streets. FFS STOP IT NOW. #roadsafety #plymouth #streets #motoring #devon #AMEY #plymouthcitycouncil
