Exterior wall cracks are both unsightly and alarming. At the very least, they allow water to penetrate your walls and potentially get inside the building. At worst, they could be a sign of serious issues with your building’s structure.
Your roof isn’t the only thing that can leak. While the majority of rainfall is dealt with on top of your property, your walls also need to deal with a certain amount of water when the heavens open. If they aren’t water-resistant, you’ll eventually get rain coming through, which can lead to a variety of problems.
We are delighted to announce the CorkSol SprayCork is shortlisted for the Build It 2021 Awards in the ‘Innovation in Insulation’ category.
With constant battering from the wind and rain, rendered walls will always become worn over time. That can lead to discolouration and cracks, not to mention the risk of further damage as water begins to get through – which is why it’s important to get something done about it.
Cork material is used for a diverse range of applications, from well-known bottle stoppers to musical instruments and, of course, our natural cork render. But what physical properties does cork possess that makes it ideal for all of these uses?
