We always recomend to post a job on main website because some of a job needs to be seen before any advice is given.
Our service is free of charge with no obligation quote and our tradesmans are happy to help with every aspects of jobs.
I would strongly recomend to post a job on Rated People home page then 3 companies will get in touch then you would be able to choose the right person as you would receive an e mail with a link to tradesman account where you would see a pictures and you will read revious from previous customers.
I hope this will help
It depends on what type of finish you want? To get back to a natural wood will take alot of work that is messy and expensive. You could paint a lime wash over it which can be mixed to any colour, a grey might work well over black. The black will come through to give it a nice subtle effect.
