Internal

Complete internal decoration service, I use the highest quality fillers and caulk for repairing internal plasterwork and interior wood trim. All sanding is done using a state of the art dustless sanding system in order to achieve the highest possible quality finish with the lowest possible impact on the rest of the home. All preparation approaches are tailored to the needs of the individual setting. Paint: I procure paint on behalf of my customers. My strongest recommendation is Tikkurila paints for internal settings, although if appropriate for the job I am very happy using Farrow and Ball and Little Greene paint.

External

I offer a full exterior painting service for previously rendered surfaces and exterior windows and doors. I offer a detailed preparation service prior to painting including basic surface repairs using modern resin and wood filler products to achieve the best possible finish for exterior woodwork. I use a variety of exterior paints, depending on the setting, chiefly from Tikkurila and Zinsser for paint and Osmo and Sikkens for timber treatment. For render I make recommendations depending on the finish and size of the job.

Spraying

I use spray finishing as a compliment to my wider decorating services. Modern spray finishing is flawless and hardwearing to behold, but is not appropriate to every setting: I often use for whole house redecorations where the building is largely or completely vacant. I also use an 'over rolling' technique where the final emulsion coat is rolled rather than sprayed in order to aid future maintenance. Spraying is also in incredibly efficient method of exterior render decoration.

Wallpapering

I offer a full paperhanging service, including hanging lining paper prior to painting or wallpapering. I recommend that customer procure their own wallpaper directly from suppliers and manufacturers and where appropriate I can match and source paint to compliment the desired finish.

Kitchens

Specialised repainting and spraying of kitchens, including base units and doors. Spraying kitchens is a specialised and detailed service - preparation is very detailed with repairs and cleaning done to the finest of details. The spraying of kitchen units is a cost effective alternative to replacement of existing kitchen units and adds tangible value to your home.

Location

Based in the Historic Minster Town of Southwell, most of my work is undertaken in the town and local Newark and Sherwood district. However I have undertaken work as far afield as Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Scotland. Do not be shy in contacting me as I may be able to help you even when travel is involved!
