Wallshield Coating Company

We have a long wearing sprayed on coating on our external walls (the rendered bits) but some areas need "refreshing" such as where doors and windows have been moved.
There seem to be a number of firms with Wallshield in the title, most of which seem to have ceased trading.
Our external walls are from the Wallshield Coating Company Limited, and the paperwork shows at least two offices, one in London WC1N 3XX and the other in Bournemouth Business Centre BH7 6DS.
So far Googling hasn't shown that they are closed down but their website at <http://www.wallshield.com reports that it is suspended for urgent maintenance (which could obviously include paying outstanding invoices to the web host). Phone is unobtainable so the clues are there.
Strangely, the invoice which came with the house paperwork shows that the work in 2003 was done by the Bournemouth branch, even though we are north of London.
Has anyone come across a version of this company which is currently trading and offering a sprayed wall covering?
Just to add that on our house the coating seems to have worked well; we are almost at the end of the 15 year guarantee (which as backed by the company and not insurance - as in not worth the paper etc.) and there are no signs of flaking or peeling.
Just exploring the possibility of getting something to more or less match.
Cost about £5.5k in 2003 so not bad value.
Cheers

Just to add that we have a large tub of Wallshield which came with the house. It still sounds sloppy (don't want to open it until I have to) so it may even be usable. As it was applied by a sprayer, does anyone know a sprayer for hire which could handle this kind of wall coating?
Needs to be special because the wall covering is pretty sharp and vicious - feels a bit like sea shell chippings - so it would have to be a specialist sprayer.
I suspect so specialist that only the coating companies have them.
Still, someone on here may have applied such a sprayed coating, so no harm in asking.

Actually I think its pearlite in th textured stuff. Bear in mind that there was a coat of something put on the render to seal it first. They guy told me that both coats had to be done when the weater had been dry for a couple of days or it would peel. Mine was wallcoat, but the company which made the paint was in Wales. Brian

Hmmm.....
I think I saw that at the Norfolk address but didn't see the reference on Page 3 to the previous London address.
"27 Oct 2002    Registered office changed on 27/10/02 from: monomark house 27 old gloucester street, london WC1N 3AF"
then
"26 Jul 2006    Registered office changed on 26/07/06 from: aston house 58 thorpe road norwich norfolk NR1 1RY"
Interesting that the documentation from 2003 still uses the old head office address.
All sounds very shonky.
All that leaves me with is trying to find an alternative or a sprayer to handle the stuff we still have.
Cheers

Monomark House was not a Head Office, but the address of the company's registered office. That address was used by many companies as their "registered office". Quite possibly a firm of solicitors was/is based there.

You can find all about Monomark House on the internet. It's basically an accomodation address although they call themselves a "mail & call handling company".

The guy that did mine advised that the old was removed near and around the damaged part and to make sure it was back to a place with good adhesion, then paint it with a sealant and let it thoroughly dry and then apply the paint of the coating all in one session. However the join may still show due to the aging of the stuff. Brian

Mine was underwritten by a well known company, but I've never had a problem other than they sprayed over a window sill and now its rotting. User error. Anyway, I believe the actual process and paint are made by one company and they licence the equipment and method to other companies, hence the changes in name all the time. Of course I do find that when you do damage it, its really very hard to mend it around doors etc, and eventually water will get in and blow any render which they fixed before the last spray. Yes I agree that these coatings are now very good indeed, until you need to do any work that punctures the coating of course. Brian

That is our next option if we can't get a sprayer.

Or until we get a really cold winter and all the moisture from inside the house (cooking, washing, breathing) has permeated into the wall (but cannot evaporate because the plastic paint wont let it) where it freezes and blows off the outer render.
Saw a few like that during those bad winters between 2008 and 2010
