Transforming Homes on BBC’s DIY SOS

hodgson sealants inspiration hessle hullOver the past few weeks, Hodgson Sealants have been assisting BBC One with their popular DIY show, ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build‘ with their latest home transformation.  The transformation took place in Hessle near Hull, close to our Head Office in Beverley.

When the TV show stated they were looking for a local sealant manufacturer to supply sealants for the project and provide sealant experts to check all the sealant applications were in order before the Big Reveal, we jumped at the chance to help such an amazing, deserving, local family with their newly refurbished home.

Head of Sales, Kevin Nickolay, assisted onsite and attended the Big Reveal said

“Once Hodgson heard about the opportunity to help a good local cause, there was no hesitation in getting involved.  It was a great experience to see a community come together and work with like-minded people giving up their time free to supply products and labour in aid of a worthy cause.

Seeing the transformation to the house over the 9 days was an amazing sense of satisfaction and the quality of the build was second to none!  Listening to the family explaining the difference made to their home and thanking people for what they had done to change their life situation, the difference it will make for them in bringing the family back together again, which most people take for granted was very emotional and left a sense of pride amongst everyone involved.”

Hodgson Sealants donated a variety of products for the deserving family which featured on the BBC One series ‘DIY SOS: The Big Build.’  These products included:

Silfix U9

Silicone sealant for the capping and bedding of glass and insulating glass units in bead glazing systems.

Aquacaulk

Emulsion acrylic sealant that contains a high level of fungicide for long-term decorative appearance.

HY-SPEC PowerBond

Solvent-free, high-strength sealant that is perfect for bonding decorative frames, skirting boards, insulation panels and cable ducts.

HY-SPEC Seal&Bond

Highly flexible sealant with movement accommodation for factory, on-site, remedial applications and the sealing of construction joints.

HY-SPEC CrystalSeal

Crystal clear sealant with permanent flexibility and a long-lasting finish.

HY-SPEC HygieneSeal

Protected by BioCote Silver Antimicrobial Technology to create a product upon which bacteria/microbes cannot survive making it easier to maintain a hygienic surface.

Mirror Adhesive

Fast curing adhesive which allows the user to secure mirrors to many vertical surfaces in situations which would otherwise require the use of mechanical fixings.

As a result of the successful project with DIY SOS, Hodgsons are pleased to announce we have agreed to supply further products for future build transformations.
