Siniat Solutions Residential Case Study Wendy

Wendy O'Callaghan,
Self builder, Padstow, Cornwall

“Our hallway has traditionally been a dumping ground for shoes, coats, buggies and all the things we grab at the last minute when we’re leaving the house.

When we were bought our latest project, we took the opportunity to invest in a really strong board for our hallway that could withstand the wear and tear of the three kids! My partner works in construction and had used LaDura on a commercial project, so whilst there’s not much we can do about scuffing or marking the paintwork, the underlying wall is going to stay good and strong.”
