Belzona 5122: Does it work?

Back in February this year we applied a couple of coats of Belzona 5122 (otherwise known as “Clear Cladding”) to the south west gable and above one of the rear patio doors.  These areas were particularly prone to the south westerly weather and we felt we needed to treat the stonework to prevent any water ingress.  We put a couple of coats of Belzona on these areas, but I was never quite sure how effective it was going to be.

Well, today, with some very wet weather, we have the clearest indication ever that the Belzona is doing what it is meant to do.  Just take a look at the photos below.

The area above these patio doors was treated with Belzona 5122 in February this year.  Here you can see on a particularly wet October day, the effect that it has had.  Just compare it to the stonework above the patio doors on the right.  You can even see where the Belzona has dripped onto the jambs and the step below.

Here you can see the impact that the Belzona has had on the way the stonework is absorbing the rain water.  I hadn't really noticed this before as there is no impact on the colour of the stonework when it is dry.

The left hand side of this south west gable was treated with Belzona 5122.  On this particularly wet day, you can see the difference it is making to the way the stonework is absorbing the water.

  1. Hi Stephen,
    Did the Belzona work?
    Did you have any internal issues as a result of the stonework not breathing?
    Just looking at doing the same with my granite property.
    Thanks in advance.

    • Hiya,
      No issues at all and 5 years on it still seems to be working. You can definitely see where it has been applied when it rains. And more importantly, we haven’t had any leaks through these areas. I will very pleased with it.

      S.
