Painter / Decorator

Post a job

Despite painting and decorating appearing like a job most people can DIY, there’s quite a difference between the finish a professional can create versus that of an amateur. Hiring an experienced painter-decorator will mean that the job is finished to a high standard, with minimum mess and in record time too.

What can a painter-decorator help you with? 

  • Hanging wallpaper 

  • Getting the right amount of paint for the job 

  • Applying paint, primer, and undercoat to the interior or exterior of your home 

  • Adding special finishing touches, like glazes or marbling 

  • Filling holes and cracks, ensuring smooth surface levels
