It has been a busy couple of weeks for Trevor repainting the outside of the web design studio in Pembroke Dock, Pembrokeshire. Not only did it have to be repainted but the walls had to be repaired before hand.
Over the years efflorescence had appeared on the walls, penetrated the paint. Efflorescence are white marks left by salt escaping the cement. So before it could be painted over it had to be scrubbed with a wire brush. It then had to be wiped down with white vinegar to get rid of as much of it as possible. Once this was done all the cracks had to be filled and only then could it be painted.
What is more, a peace of cement has come away from the front of the web design studio. It was at the very apex of the building and it could not be reached by ladder. Therefore we had to build a scaffolding tower to reach the summit and fill the hole. It was a very long day. However, it now looks perfect and the new paint has really lifted the look of the place.
In addition to this the opportunity has been taken to recover our existing raised (pan tray) sign and freshen up the woodwork with a coat of print or wood stain where appropriate.
Inside the Web Design Studio
The whole web design studio is looking much better now. The next project is to move on to the inside of the studio and extend the designers desks. This is so that they can work further apart from each other when the return to the studio. At the moment they are working from home.
