Q. How do I care for the external surface of my Hebel home?

Q. I’ve built my house in Hebel – can I fix items like external lights or speakers to it?

We are often asked about fixings! Holes can be drilled in Hebel walls using a masonry drill bit fitted to a standard (not rotary hammer) drill. Once the penetration has been filled with the required cables or the like, the gap around the penetration should be filled with a reputable flexible sealant such as Sikaflex polyurethane sealant. Below is a table which outlines what you need for common fixings to Hebel.

Q. If I damage my Hebel wall, how do I repair it?

Surface knocks and scratches can be touched up with the same surface coating finish that was applied at construction, like any masonry wall. In the event you are unsure, contact your builder for advice.

If the damage extends beyond the coating system and into the Hebel wall, professional advice should be sought to ensure the damage has not compromised the integrity of the wall.
