I provide most aspects of decorating, both interior and exterior.  Exterior work is of course subject to weather constraints and I am generally booked up for such work many months in advance.

I recommend the use of Dulux Trade and Sikkens products because of their superior quality and coverage and there is of course a huge range of colours available.  I am happy to offer advice regarding colour schemes and paint systems/finishes as part of my service.

I get enormous job satisfaction from transforming people’s living or working environments to a beautiful standard and thorough preparation is essential.  The majority of my work is based on personal recommendation – along with my eye-catching van!

Labour charges for most projects are priced on a daily rate basis of £220.  My normal working hours are from 8.30 am to 5.00 pm.  For smaller jobs I charge an hourly rate of £30 or £100 per half day.  Weekend and holiday work is negotiable for some projects.

Written quotations are free, and I advise customers to obtain quotes from two other firms.  In deciding who to choose to carry out your project, check the technical specification provided to be sure you are comparing like with like, check references and consider what lasting value you will be getting for the overall cost.

I use a virtually dust-free sanding system which ensures a cleaner working environment and is valued by my customers as it means that pets, children and those with allergies are protected.  It also guarantees a superior level of finish.  Respect for your home and its contents is one of my priorities, along with safe practice (I hold a ConstructionSkills Managerial and Professional Health and Safety Test certificate).
