Hornsea Freeport is a popular factory outlet village with many leading high street names and places to eat and drink.

Project description

We were contracted to carry out the external redecoration of the café. The existing wood-stained café front was looking tired and in need of a makeover. Our job involved changing this to a gloss paint system which needed a specialist primer to ensure the correct adhesion. The café remained open to the public throughout the work.


A Dulux Weathershield exterior system was used, with a three tone colour scheme used to highlight/accentuate the timber detailing.
