Protection of external walls

The facade of your home is exposed 24 / 24h and 7 / 7d to weather aggression: bad weather (rain, frost, wind, etc.), large temperature differences and various pollution. Over time, the coatings and materials wear out, lose their insulating properties and may even allow moisture to settle, which can weaken the construction and lead to overconsumption of energy. There are treatments to protect your masonry.
Murprotec, for example, has developed "Murpro Façade", an invisible water-repellent cream that effectively protects your stone, brick or even coated walls, prevents water from settling while letting your walls breathe. This kind of professional product penetrates up to 18 mm inside porous materials and mineral coatings, coats the capillaries and surfaces of siloxane silane cream which acts as a real protector and repellent to water.
Thanks to its protective action, the product ensures a perfect heat exchange between inside and outside, stops moisture and saves up to 4% energy saving.
