About Terry Rich Coatings - Exterior Wall Coating in Tonbridge, TN9 2LU

Terry Rich Coatings are a reliable and established company with over 30 years experience in wall coating and a reputation which has been earned throughout the years for their diligence, professionalism, and excellent customer service. Much of their work is from previous customers and word of mouth referrals.

Terry Rich Exterior Coatings regards the treatment of your home or office as an opportunity to ensure that our diligent efforts in renovation are protected in the long term by a treatment that will mean you never need to paint again!

We offer the following services:

  • Wall protection
  • Clear wall coatings
  • Exterior wall rendering
  • Commercial wall coating
  • Home decorating contractors

Reasons to use Terry Rich Coatings:

  • We thoroughly inspect the outside walls of your home or business premises for deterioration and any suspect areas.
  • We replace guttering, downpipes, rotten fascia and soffits with uPVC to make the outside of your house completely maintenance free
  • We repair all damaged and worn surfaces, reinstating with all appropriate materials
  • Damaged render and blown pebbledash is removed and all cracks are hacked out
  • Polymer modified cements are used for repairing to ensure a perfect bond
  • Bare brickwork is rendered with PVA mortar mix to fill all the small air holes
  • Great care is taken to achieve a sound and uniform surface area

Our procedure:

All doors, windows and surfaces not to be coated are carefully covered with tape and heavy duty paper to prevent overspray. Where required we use polythene and dust sheets and great care is taken to protect plants, bushes and lawns.

Once the surface has been cleaned and all damaged areas have been repaired, we apply our Unibond bag coat evenly over the pebbledash to bind the surface together.

The high penetration stabiliser Andura® primer is then applied, providing an armour-like protective surface to your property’s exterior. The primer penetrates into the exterior wall surface and provides excellent adhesion and weather-proofing.

Andura® Textured Coating is then applied to chemically bond the primer for a second line of defence against the elements. It also adds colour and helps to reflect the suns heat and harmful UV radiation.

All masking is then removed and the area is cleaned of any debris.

Terry and his team will then do a final inspection with you in order to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with the work carried out on your property.

Finishing Touches:

All products come in a wide range of architectural colours and finishes which resist penetrating damp, mould, algae, dirt and salty sea air. Most importantly, our micro porous applications allow walls to breathe.

Whilst ordinary paints quickly lose their resistance to mould and algae which can actually feed off conventional paints, ANDURA textured wall-coatings contain powerful fungicides resulting in superb Mould and Algae resistance performance. Which is why we can confidently provide you with the comfort and reassurance of a 15 Year Guarantee!

    "'When things don't go to plan and / or the work that's been completed doesn't stand the test of time you expect the trader to put things right - for us it's a basic expectation when we contract someone to do work for us. Unfortunately, despite our best efforts, this hasn't been the case with this trader. I got a quote from him in June 2017 and he carried out the work in October 2017. The main aspect, the specialist/textured paint work was done to a good standard, however there was some paint left on the fence, bins, patio and windows which wasn't ideal. He'd neglected to mention that our outside light would need to be reconnected by an electrician at the end of the job too. In addition to this specialist paintwork we had some other 'standard' paint work done (e.g. around the front windows and around the plinths, plus some other bits and pieces) and he put up new gutters for us, front and back. Since the work has been completed we've had ongoing issues with the gutters - they leak, badly - not just in one place, but all round. This of course wasn't obvious until it rained and once the invoice was paid. We contacted the trader to put this right and he came out once to try and fix the issues, but this didn't work. I invited him back again - no response. I've had therefore no choice but to seek the help of other traders at a cost to myself (gutters and electrical work). In addition, other aspects of the work such as the 'standard' paint work are now looking worse for wear after a short amount of time - I expected all the work to be done to a good standard and last longer than 1.5 years given the price we paid. It's taken us sometime to write this review for two reasons - first: the cost of the remedial works has only just become apparent; and second: up until now we've given the trader the benefit of the doubt. We would point out that - as part of this review process - we have sought to work with the trader before posting this review, however he has sought not to work with us on this - not even towards a comprise. He disputes our complaint in full (despite us providing comprehensive evidence to back our position), which is very upsetting given that we are now hundreds of pounds out of pocket. In conclusion, and for the reasons outlined above, we would not recommend his services."

    Trader reply: "Thank you for your feedback. In response, I would like to say that I have never been asked to come back to carry out any adjustments. Had I have been made aware I would have come out immediately to rectify any problems. In terms of the gutter, if it needed readjusting at the time I would have come out to do this for you free of charge, however this is the first I have heard about this. You mentioned you are happy with the specialist/textured paintwork which all that was quoted and my area of expertise. The extras were done free of charge for you and just a standard quick touch up of areas which would not withstand the test of time. The outside light was never damaged or removed by myself so unsure where the problem is with this? I apologise about the specks of paint that may have been left over fence and bins. I was not aware of this at the time and we both went round to inspect the work once I had finished. Had I of been made aware at the time I would of course rectified all of this straight away. I carry out all of my work meticulously and had I have been given the chance would have gone back to you. Unfortunately, I have not received any calls or emails from you in over 1.5 years."
