As part of our tour of Scotland we visited Tony, the owner of A.M Decor, on site in Edinburgh to find out how to prep and paint windows that’ll last for 10 years before they need to be repainted.
The windows of this beautiful period house were not in a good state, but with some TLC from Tony and his team they were transformed within just a matter of days. Tony shared a few tricks of the trade with us and taught us how to bring an old window back to life. The window we were working on is a priceless arched stained glass window, which had been neglected over the years, but with a bit of work it was restored to its former glory.
Watch the video to find out how to prep and paint windows.
Tony and his team did such a good job that the neighbour of their client, whom they found through RatedPeople.com, asked them to paint her windows and doors too. She had her windows painted 2 years previous but the bad quality materials and workmanship were already starting to show; paint was bubbling and lifting, leaving the wooden frames exposed to the elements. For her this was a costly mistake, thankfully Tony’s team will have her keeping up with the Jones’s in no time and she won’t have to worry about her windows again for another 10 years.
Tony’s ratings speak for themselves…

The job was done to a high standard and the workmen themselves were very clean in their work and tidy with the old wall paper being baged up, made sure my carpet was covered whilst painting. Very pleasant and honest workmen. (make sure you’ve got the kettle on). Jean – 10 Oct 2011 10:46

“Tony did a great job wallpapering my living room, I was delighted with his work. He turned up promptly to look over what was required and sent an itemised quote for the various aspects of the redecoration which was very helpful. He has a polite and courteous team working for him too and turn up when expected. Loraine – 11 Aug 2011 20:50
