Our services begin with a phone call, we are happy to discuss your project in outline, and if required, we will then come to your premises and conduct a full site survey and give a detailed written quote. We will list a timescale for the completion of all work and a realistic and competitive costing depending on a range of factors, such as how much preparation you will do, whether or not you wish to supply your own paints, wallpaper etc. We are happy to work with parameter which you set, not the other way around. We respect your wishes and your property!
We prefer to work with top quality paints. It really is true: buy cheap, buy twice. Top quality paints such as Farrow & Ball, Dulux and Crown allow us to deliver a faster, better quality service saving you money in the long run. And good quality painting (and wallpapering) begins with comprehensive preparation of ceilings and walls, doors, wood surfaces, skirting, panels, dadoes, window frames etc. We will fill, skim and sand back to improve where required to improve surfaces. Our pricing will include (where agreed) priming and/or undercoating and application of paint in whatever finish (eggshell, satin, matt, gloss or coach) our customer requires.
Good quality wallcoverings will, properly prepared for and applied, last for years. We are happy to fill and sand back walls and ceilings to prepare surfaces, and hang lining papers (if required) to make your walls and other surfaces look superb. Our wallpaper expert Rob has decades of experience and can bring back any tired walls to life.
Whether ceramic, glass or mosaic tiles are required, for bathrooms or kitchens, we have years of experience. We can remove old tiles, refurbish the tile bed and install new tiling in a range of formats, designs and grout finishes.
For walls and ceilings that require more extensive remedial work, our expert plasterer Adam can replaster and restore any room's ceiling and/or walls.
Charlie is our master-carpenter. He can re-fit skirting, dadoes, panels, architraves, and retro-fit sections to existing woodwork. Charlie will be happy to hang or re-hang doors, change door furniture and spindles, fit locks and radiator covers.
Although we do not have a permanent electrician on our team, we do have access to qualified professionals through our extensive network of contacts and craftsmen with whom we have successfully worked in the past.
Kitchen- and bathroom-fitting service
Working with our clients we can help to design and install kitchens and bathroom hardware including tiling and flooring. We have had great success, especially recently, in creating space-saving kitchens in apartments.
Whether decorating the outside of a family home, or the exterior and common parts of a large apartment block, we have the resources and experience to handle the job. We recommend using the best products to care for your home such as Dulux Weathershield (our absolute favourite) or Crown Stronghold. We can deal with ironwork, fencing, woodwork, panelling and all types of masonry. We can plaster and re-render and arrange for repairs to damaged or rotted woodwork, windows or doorframes. We can, if needed, arrange scaffolding if required.
Commercial and contract decorating
We work regularly with landlords, schools, community groups, and architects and developers on medium- and large-scale projects delivering reliable and high-quality decorating services. We can work closely with other trades and can deliver to tight budgets and timescales.
