Protect your homes exterior walls whilst retaining the original brickwork or stonework
Water based masonry cream that provides invisible protection for your home’s exterior walls
If you would like to protect your home from everything the weather elements can throw at it whilst maintaining the style of its original brickwork, a Clear Guard exterior wall coating may be exactly what your home needs.
Clear-Gard is a high-quality speciality product based on a mixture if saline and siloxane, for hydrophobic impregnation of absorbent neutral to low alkaline mineral substrates.
Exterior walls are even more susceptible to penetrating damp than those coated in traditional masonry paints or renders. If your external walls are, natural stone, solid brick, unpainted brick and re-constituted stone the chances are that wind-driven rain will at some point cause penetrating damp inside your home.
HomeStyle Coatings can solve the problem
Using Andura’s high performance Clear-Guard masonry cream which helps repel water, keeping the surface dry and insulating the underlying wall, the Clear Guard solution we apply to your walls will solve the problems that your homes exterior walls may be experiencing.
The Clear-Guard masonry cream can be applied by roller brush or airless spray and initially appears white before it dry’s back totally clear, the benefit of this is that the you can see where has been coated and where it hasn’t thereby avoiding leaving any areas untreated.

Damp walls are thermal bridges
If the pores of a wall collect moisture, more heat is transferred than would be possible if the cavities were filled with air. The thermal conductivity of the wall decreases enormously with dampness. Tests have shown that a damp content of 5% in a plain brick wall, for example, can lower the insulation performance by up to 50%, especially where cavity wall insulation has been installed. Porous building materials, such as natural stone, brick, solid brick, etc. normally have good insulating properties as they have air-filled cavities, which offer low thermal conductivity. But only when they are dry!
Tested and certified to standards that the product penetrates deep into the substrate, creating an INVISIBLE INSULATION BARRIER that reduces water absorption by more than 95%. Clear-Guard Masonry Creme has been tested according to o DIN EN ISO 7783 demonstrating its hydrothermal performance on concrete, mortar, brick, and sandstone.
