Our painters can patch up scrapes and holes in walls, paint one wall or the entire inside or outside of your house, as well as assist in a range of services that include:
- Preparing surfaces prior to painting e.g.removing old paintwork and wallpaper, patching holes, sealing surfaces, sanding and repairing skirting boards and woodwork
- Removing lead-based paint safely
- Waterproofing wet areas
- Timber maintenance – waxing, polishing and sealing
And we always clean up when we’re done.
To ensure you we can give you an accurate estimate on painting costs when you call, we’ll need to know the approximate size of the area to paint, how much prep is required and what type of paint we’ll be working with – and if you don’t know, we’re always happy to help you figure it out.
