Hi there, Mr. Gonsalves!

2. I am Ms. Jigna Patel from Ahmedabad. There are a lot of construction activities happening around my house. I have seen advertisements for Berger’s WeatherCoat Anti Dustt in the past and was wondering about its effectiveness. Could you shed some light?

Our in-house expert replies:

Kem Chho, Ms. Patel! India is continuously evolving and developing, opening a number of avenues to create dust in the environment. We often hear about the dust generated by construction activities in residential areas and are aware of the nuisance caused. It can settle on the home’s exterior walls, making it an eyesore and a breeding ground for exterior wall issues.

We recommend that you paint every five to ten years, depending on factors such as your location, the climate and weather, and the previous paint job.
