There can be a lot of heat loss through a foundation so it is important to insulate it.
While the foundation edge is often overlooked it accounts for up to 80% of slab heat loss.

Maxraft with their patented system, ingeniously insulate the entire slab, including the edge, with no thermal bridging.

… Where’s Beccote in this story?... Maxraft’s insulated edge is made from Polystyrene that needs to be waterproofed & plastered. We approached Maxraft a few years ago & showed them our mineral pool resurfacing system under our Beccrete brand. They like it, we refined it for Maxraft’s requirements & now we are up & down the country plastering Maxraft foundations.

The major benefit of using Beccrete on Maxraft is the Beccrete plaster system is waterproof without the need to paint it.

We have been fans of the Macpac Brand for a long time, so just about jumped out of our skin at the opportunity to plaster their shop front in the Plaza at Palmerston North.

Macpac had a clear idea of the type of finish & colour they were after… we added a bit of Beccote magic & created MACPAC WILDERNESS FINISH for them.
They like it, and now we are plastering their new stores across New Zealand & Australia!

FoxFoxton Floor – Private Customer

An earthquake emptied an indoor swimming pool & damaged the existing floor coverings.

To replace them the home owners wanted something durable, in a tile finish, but with more design flexibility to better match their colour scheme & décor.
We created the perfect finish for them with an overlay.



QueensQueenstown Floor – Private Customer

This floor had to be ground back because of frost damage, revealing the stone in the concrete.

The home owners didn’t want that look, they were after a buffed concrete look with no stone showing. Our solution was to apply a charcoal micro topping finished with a very hard wearing 2- pack urethane.
