|« Status villa outside view||Letter to Pafilia»|
Finally Cyprus had some rain. We need it badly. It is also a test to see if the concrete construction is holding up. When I visted the villa today I did notice some deficiencies:
Layers of concrete flakes or crumbles away in patches. Another problem is moisture rising from below the slab. That "white stuff," or efflorescence, shows up when moisture has moved through the slab, carrying minerals with it. A white residue is left behind when the water evaporates. I read on the web that applying a solvent-based acrylic sealer will make the efflorescence disappear. We have to see what Pafilia recommends.
What is of a bigger concern to me is the cracks and that iron shows through the concrete. What makes me even more disappointing is the fact that we saw this coming and pointed out the problem to Pafilia when the iron grid was mounted. See diary note on 27 April 2008. This problems needs to be solved!

Pafilia subcontracted our bathroom enclosures to Konikkos, a shower specialist in Pafos. Mr. Charalambos Dionysiou, the Managing Director, paid attention to every detail of the shower cabinets. The result was perfect, 100 points! Visit www.shower.com.cy/ for details.
