Neil Spindler has a name in the Canary Islands, as well as the Specialist construction chemicals - and in El Paso on La Palma a business. Homeowners, Craftsman, Island Government and the observatories at Roque de Los Muchachos contact especially in terms of sealing against moisture or super strong foundations to him. Neil scored in the German building chemistry manufacturers, When he applied for a patent for a concrete. 2018 He topped his expertise, by he himself to the "Specialist planner for the maintenance of concrete components" further.

Sustainably rehabilitate and seal with the building chemistry experts and quality building material from Germany

The building chemistry expert has three tests for his recent training to the Specialist planner for the maintenance of concrete components filed. Neil is proud and pleased, to be able to offer now also this competence on the Canary Islands:

Signed and sealed: Builders in all the Canary Islands can now benefit from the know-how of the experts certified in Germany.

Signed and sealed: Builders in all the Canary Islands can now benefit from the know-how of the experts certified in Germany.

This certification have only about 800 People in Germany, that are with the highest orders in terms of concrete repair. I can work as planners in Germany as well as here on the Canary Islands. Possible areas of activity on the Islands are, for example, all buildings damaged by sea salt, in particular, balconies and flat roofs up to underground, Bridges, Tunnels and port facilities.

This training is only the icing on the cake. Because Neil Spindler is known in the Canary Islands for many years for its expertise. Both clients of the public sector and the private customers, the Council in its company YaYa material Search in El Paso, has he made a good name. Neil Spindler explained, What matters to him:

For Consulting and user training at first Ste are meLLE. Especially for individuals, of which 99 Percent have a problem with dampness in their homes on La Palma. Part two of my business philosophy is, to offer only the best products from any manufacturer.

This motto has evolved from a gap in the market, Neil already shortly after his arrival on La Palma anno 1994 discovered. The studied Economist had worked as project developer for commercial real estate in Bonn and foreseen after the capital decision, that in Bonn no longer much would go. He decided, to emigrate to La Palma, where was the construction business in full bloom. Neil had the idea, to convert existing houses in age-appropriate housing - but he quickly discovered the big catch:

Quality Construction Chemicals from Germany:

Quality construction chemicals from Germany at YaYa material: The import without any intermediary holds the prices within the framework. Neil leads only one product per product group - This is the best of his or her step but then. For example, there is only a tile adhesive, He can do everything but then.

On La Palma, nor on the other Canary Islands I found the necessary building materials in the quality, that I imagined. I said to myself, then I bring here the material myself from Germany - and many acquaintances asked immediately, If I could get with them.

Said - done. A second and a third followed the first container with construction material from Alemania. An eye Neil and his former founded on the great demand, palmerische companion Yaya 1995 the building materials trade. The first store in a garage in Tajuya was already 2001 too tight, whereupon the company YaYa material moved to the current site in the industrial area of El Paso. In the course of time, Neil specialised its range more and more:


Grouting materials of Pagel spezial-Beton: Neil has the representative for Spain.

At the beginning, I've had too many goods from a warehouse product group. Today I lead a product only - and the best in its segment. For example, I have only a tile adhesive, but he sure can do everything, of the under water fitness on tile to tile up to the suitability for underfloor heating. I am therefore one of the Canary Islands market leader for construction chemicals and specialty products - quality and at lower prices than in Germany thanks to import without any intermediary.

In addition, the renowned German manufacturer of Pagel spezial-Beton handed over the representation for potting- and special mortars throughout Spain on Neil Spindler.

The high-strength Grouting materials V1/30 RF Neil, inter alia for the foundations of a wind farm for Chile and for the La Gorona wind park on El Hierro delivered; It finds him but also in the Foundation area Aerogeneradores in Garafía and Fuencaliente. La Palma Island Government and private home owners are also fans of Neil's Super mortar, the not only extremely resilient, but is also extremely tight:

The V14/40 UW by Pagel was and, for example, the cracked asphalt of the road being redeveloped, by the old, small tunnel in Barlovento. There it is always wet, Since you can not work with bitumen. But the grout by Pagel keeps mercilessly for several years. Also private people use it, If your home has no real foundation, itself including water accumulates and causes efflorescence in the Interior. There or around there digging a waterproof trough, fills in the Pagel mortar and then rest in the box is.

Bloques and bricks absorb water in a matter of seconds:

Bloques and bricks absorb water in a matter of seconds: Silicone micro concentrates by Neils protected private label YaYa.tec prevent that sustainably.

No doubt, Neil has in the 24 Become a construction chemistry encyclopedia on two legs years on La Palma. He demonstrated his expertise in addition with the European patent a concrete superplasticizer, This is very interesting especially for the Canary Islands. Reason: On the Islands is cement, often with young, produced highly reactive volcanic ash as additive, making it extremely fast frozen. Neil's concrete Duroretard V5. 48 prevents this and also enhances the final strength. Neil reported, This patent has opened the door to the place deer in the German construction industry him:

Even concrete tiles can

Moisture has no chance: Also concrete tiles can be impregnated with silicone micro concentrates - Neil explains exactly, how it works.

Today I'm general importer of Saint-Gobain Weber - formerly Dai - on the Canary Islands. This renowned German company has flexible sealing slurries for pool in the 1960s, Tank- and develops flat roof refurbishment. Nowadays these slurries can do anything: they are applied with a brush, curing then two millimeters thick, are UV resistant, Glue extremely well and are elastic. That is, You can do everything with them Optimal seal, anything that moves. If nothing helps, then it helps. DThese are abei flexible sealing slurries with approximately 14 Euros per square meter not much more expensive to purchase than about rubber- or asphalt films, which back will often run water; in the long term, they are the cheapest option anyway... - and it's a solution according to German standard.

Liverpool-tele on the Roque de los Muchachos: Neil delivered the Super-rugged exterior color of Maleco.

Liverpool-tele on the Roque de los Muchachos: Neil delivered the Super-rugged exterior color of Maleco. That holds in more than 2.000 Metres above sea level around seven years, houses down 100 Meters distance from the sea between twelve and 15 Years.

Who wants cheap, is Neil anyway at the wrong address. Quality has always a price - so also the silicone micro concentrates by YaYa material, with those on La Palma of in many places installed Bloques sustainable against rising damp impregnate that is let. These building blocks suck rain- or even ground water like a sponge, and therefore BB´s in many buildings on the island is often in wet, which in turn caused the well-known efflorescence on the walls. Water problems are BB´s also on the Roque de los Muchachos: In freezing temperatures in the winter freezes the rain into ice crystals, that a few years ago the PVC roof of the Liverpool telescope hard struck. Neil delivered the rehabilitation solution, It is good also for roofs and facades of the highest Island mountain:

Ya Ya material: Neil holds special paints for boats ready.

YaYa material: Neil has also Antifoulig and ship colors and underwater adhesive for boats.


The exterior color of Maleco holds seven years on the Roque, houses in the first row to the sea - in El Remo - ten years and from a distance of approximately 100 At least twelve feet up 15 Years. The company Maleco sits in Hamburg and has its best color for me and modified the weather on the Canary Islands.

Neil Spindler offers even more products in the field of construction chemistry. Where he shall also ensure, they are eco-friendly:

Like me to inform local ship colors, mildew-repellent or chlorine-resistant special Silicones, ecological Interior paints and much more from my construction chemistry set. And we must not forget, that in this area in recent years extremely much has happened. The products no longer go to the detriment of the environment and are more mild than in the past.

On La Palma, often a problem: About- or undervoltage in mains - Neil has developed a protection system.

Last but not least,: Neil sells electronics, for example guards against about- Under/Overvoltage during power outages or lightning.
