Interior

From start to finish the Interior Painting process must be carried out with absolute diligence. The interior painting environment often has many risks for liability and there is a greater potential to have a poor final finish if the right process is not carried out.

I use drop sheets to protect your property and prior to painting will patch and repair damage to your drywall and plaster. I have decades of experience in the art of interior painting whilst at the same time protecting your home from paint spills, dust and damage.

Exterior

The External Painting serves the dual purpose of both making your house look great and protecting it from the elements. The weather puts a tremendous amount of stress on the paint and because of that I take extra care with preparation, application and product selection.

I use only proper techniques to prepare the external walls of your home or business prior to painting and make sure to only use paint that is suitable for your job. All the factors that can affect adhesion such as the condition of the area being painted, sun exposure and the existing paint are all taken into consideration.

Wallpapering

Wallpaper hanging is an art and if done correctly to a high standard it can transform any room. A development of particular note in recent years has been the use of wallpaper to turn one wall into a feature wall. The feature wall is a simple but powerful technique to add the wow factor to any room.

Wallpaper hanging is one of those jobs that can easily end up in a sticky mess for the less experienced who are brave enough to take it on. As an experienced wallpaper hanger I will work patiently with your chosen wallpaper to achieve the best seamless results using time honoured paperhanging skills.

Commercial

I undertake both residential and commercial work. For commercial clients I understand that time is money and that depending on your needs it may be necessary to work out of hours and weekends to minimise the disruption to your business and get the job completed as soon as possible.

I have lots of experience of working with commercial clients including hotels, shops and bars.

Interior Painting

Setup

Items are placed in the centre of the room and covered with clean, new plastic sheeting or dust covers. All floors are protected with drop cloths.

Preparation

Based on your requests, holes and cracks in ceilings and walls are filled; stains are sealed and surfaces are scuff sanded. All electrical covers are removed or covered with painters tape and depending on the circumstances the lights may be dropped as well.

Paint Application

Repaired areas are primed and premium quality paint is applied to a uniform finish. Typically applied by brush and roller.

Clean Up

Furniture and accessories are moved back to their desired locations. Floors and carpets are vacuumed and swept. All of our materials are removed.

Exterior Painting

Wash

As per your proposal, areas are either power washed or hand washed to remove dirt and mildew. Some jobs may not require a pressure wash while others will. This will be determined at the estimate.

Surface Preparation

Based on your exterior painting proposal, all loose paint is scraped down to a firm base. We offer several levels of sanding and filling to our clients depending on the aesthetic level they desire. All gaps are caulked to prevent water penetration. Preparation is by far the most important aspect of the paint process and will ultimately decide the length the lifespan of the paint.

Paint Application

Repaired areas are primed and premium quality paint is applied to a uniform finish. We apply a standard two coats unless otherwise determined at the estimate. If sprayers are being used then all surfaces not being painted will be masked and protected from overspray.

Clean Up

Clean up is done daily, and in full upon the completion of the job. Paint chips are removed and all our materials are packed up and stored neatly.
