|Removing décor in a sitting room||£100||£250||£150||£375||£200||£500|
Giving your sitting room a makeover means you first have to carry out the arduous task of removing the current décor, which is very much something that a professional can do for you more efficiently. The cost of the job will largely depend upon the dimensions of the sitting room that you need working on, but you should always allow half a day for the job at the very least.
Wallpaper may need to be stripped, decorative items pulled down or gently removed and waste disposed of. Stripping wallpaper can be time-consuming and coverings such as woodchip can add to the cost, but a good professional decorator will have all the steamers and strippers for the job that you would otherwise have to hire or buy in.
In removing your sitting room décor your painter and decorator may uncover small problems that need to be dealt with, such as cracks in plaster work, crumbling plaster or small holes in the wall. They will be able to make these good before work commences as well as look at and advise on any signs of problems like damp or subsidence that may have been hidden behind your wallpaper or paintwork.
After removing your décor your decorator can also prepare for work to be done, which may mean unscrewing sockets or switches, taking down items such as wall clocks and moving out any furniture that may need to be cleared from the sitting room. They will also sand down any woodwork and pull up and remove carpets if this is needed.
