Textured wall coatings, The Wirral, Merseyside

We love getting out and about and meeting new customers so it was a delight to work for the couple who owned this lovely Semi-detached home on the Wirral, Merseyside.

We put together this page, with some photos, to show you the type of work we carry out each and every week. No two jobs are ever the same and each one has it’s own challenges and rewards, the reward for us being the satisfaction of a job well done, and two very happy home owners!

House painting services all around Kent: A case study

Professional, reliable, expert, trustworthy and competent! That nicely sums up our house painting teams in Kent, as approved by our many customers since 1986!

I’m from Dover in Kent myself, I was born there on the 12th December 1970 and my family are from Walmer in Deal. Although I live in Devon now, It was great to go back to my home town and do some sterling exterior painting work to this lovely and very spacious home in Dover.

This page sums up the work we did to the house, with a few photos thrown in for good measure.

It’s a great way to see what we do as our methods, and the end results, are a little bit different than your normal painter and decorator in East Kent, so without further ado, Let’s have a look at the property in question, and remember there are more examples at the bottom of this page. Read More

Would “yew” believe it! Sweden invents see-through wood

Sweden. The land of Abba, Volvo’s, crime drama’s, flat-packed furniture and unnecessary nudity, are set to amaze the world again, or at least, chemists at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm (“KTH”), are set to amaze people, with a new and very cool invention.

Transparent wood!

Scientists and chemists working in Stockholm have turned humble balsa wood into a translucent sheet, effectively a brand new material, that despite being at least twice the strength of Perspex, is able to be used just like wooden sheets, paving the way for new technologies in construction methods for the future.

How long does it take to paint a house exterior?

How long is a piece of string?!

One of the most common questions we get asked over the years we have been painting houses is “how long will the job take?“. Well you may be surprised that having one of our teams paint the exterior of your home doesn’t take that long, in fact in most cases we are “in and out” in the space of only a few days.

Why does paint peel and crack?

There is nothing worse than taking a lot of time and effort decorating a room in your home, or even outside, only for the paint to crack, forcing you to do it again, or even give up and call a tradesman in to do it properly, but WHY does this happen?

Similarly, if you had your house exterior painted recently, or at least during the past year or so, and cracks have appeared, what’s gone wrong?

If only there was a paint that never cracked….. Read More
