Thank you to the 32 residents who have sent us emails so far about rendering issues with your reports of rendering and paint issues affecting over 40 residences be they houses or blocks of flats in Poundbury.
The issues appear to affect properties constructed by CG Fry and Morrish and we haven’t heard yet of any ZeroC (Places for People) properties. The properties affected have been constructed over a lengthy period but there is a surprising number in the 1-3 year band.
Your emails have been specific and in some cases somewhat emotional. Many of you are in contact with the developers and have yet to have a satisfactory resolution.
There is speculation in your emails about the cause of the problems, ranging from the timing of render application to the chemical composition and integrity of paint finishes with changing specifications.
We are compiling a data base of cases and will keep this open for a while to see if others wish to add. We are sorry if we haven’t been able to reply to your email but please be assured that we are giving this attention and will make sure that this is an active discussion point with the Duchy.
If you do have a problem with your external walls and have yet to let us know then please email firstname.lastname@example.org
