New year, new paint…

On a quiet trip round Homebase I noticed how easy modern paints are supposed to make our lives. One Coat, No Preparation, Perfect Finish….
If only.

My workmen disagree. They’ll happily tell you – in great details – how long it takes to sand down a wall, fill the holes, fix the woodwork, prime the surface, mix the paint, clean the brushes ….. I find it best to make them a cup of tea and come back later.

But it’s true that there’s no substitute for the old-school attitude. No matter what the paint is, you can see the difference at a glance. More important, for exteriors, good paintwork keeps the elements at bay and can save  a fortune in damage from damp.

So, with the new year getting underway, it’s a good time to get our workmen where they belong – up their ladders.

We’re booking up rapidly just now, so if you’re thinking you might need some work done, I’d advise getting in touch sooner rather than later.

We’re taking bookings now – call on 0208 946 5045 for a visit, or book a virtual quotation with RoboQuote (who still works here)

Wishing you all the best for 2023
