Painter and Decorator Services in Bedford

Preparation

Preparation will always be the most important part of any job to achieve an outstanding finish, if you dont do the prep correctly you may as well pack up your kit and get in your van and leave. All areas to be redecorated are sheeted up before commencing any work. I carry out filling up to all cracks on ceilings, walls and woodwork, all gaps and cracks around coving, window frames, door frames, tops of skirting boards are raked out and then caulked up, I strip off old wallpaper from ceilings and walls and if required hang new lining paper to any defective surfaces. I use dust Free sanding technology for the majority of sanding down. My attention to detail is second to none.

Interior Painting

I cover all aspects of interior painting and decorating, including the painting of ceilings, covings and walls. Stain blocking to all kinds of stains – from water stains to nicotine stains. The painting of woodwork and metalwork using oil based paint or water based paint – customers preference. All types of staining and varnishing work are carried out. I use the best quality trade paints to paint with, make no mistake trade paints are of a superior quality to publicly available paints which makes for a better finish and saves time required to complete a job, however I have no issues if the customer wants to supply the paint.

Exterior Painting

It’s not just the inside of the house that requires attention, the exterior of your property is just as important. I cover all aspects of exterior painting and decorating including the removal of flaking paint with a hot air gun or paint stripper, wood priming, painting of fascia boards, soffits, windows, guttering, downpipes, cladding, wooden and metal doors, door frames, varnishing, wood or metal fence painting, wood staining, and masonry painting.

Wallpapering

Wallpapering takes skill and experience to achieve a great finish. To achieve this all walls are filled up and then sanded down. Then a coat of wallpaper size is applied to the walls and allowed to dry. Then you plan where to start, on a feature wall I always start in the middle of the wall and wallpaper outwards this allows when finishing each side of the wall will have the same pattern and look even. When wallpapering a whole room I start behind a door or a chimney breast. Using a laser level to ensure you have a perfect straight line to start wallpapering from, all lengths of wallpaper are matched perfectly so no joins are seen.
