Reason being for them bad reviews are. The both property’s only have facia Boards? and no soffits boards placed in the area of concern with the painting. A major advantage for having soffit boards on your property, is to protect your property walls from a constant water effects from the bad weather,us brits get. I have explained this to both reviews and they do not believe the facts. They accuse me of not using the best quality paint, which isn’t the case. I use only the best products from the best Decorating centres in the Cardiff area. And I get pliolite high resin solvent based masonry from London. As you can see I strive for a 5star review on every job we undertake. I will not take on the job , if Future customers ?do not have the correct soffits & facias Boards? in place.

Painters and decorators - what you need to know

Painting and decorating sometimes feels like the kind of job most people can tackle themselves, and many people do. If you’ve got the tools, patience, and attention to detail, it can be very rewarding to give it a whirl.

What your local painter and decorator can help with

  • Applying paint (primer and undercoat) to the inside or the exterior of your home.
  • Hanging wallpaper.
  • Adding special finishes like glazes or marbling.
  • Working out how much paint is needed for the size of the walls.
  • Stripping old wallpaper or layers of paint.
  • Filling holes and cracks and making sure surfaces are level.
  • Mixing paint to the right shade, often using computerised colour-matching equipment.

If you choose to hire professional painters and decorators, there are lots of advantages. First off, you’ll get someone who can do it in record time. After all, why waste a weekend if your local decorator can take care of it while you’re at work.

painter protecting skirting before paintingPainters and decorators will also have a full range of tools to get the job done. It’s not just brushes and paint tins. They’ll have:

  • Plastic and fabric to protect floors.
  • A full range of brushes, rollers and sprays.
  • Wallpaper strippers.
  • Masking tape so their lines are perfect.
  • Large A-frame ladders or scaffolding for high ceilings.

They’re also well versed in calculating how much paint they’ll need to complete the job, so there’s no unnecessary spending on tins, and definitely no last-minute dashes to the shops.

When decorating bathrooms, a pro knows which materials work best and won’t be too affected by damp or water.

A quality local decorator will even be able to help you pick colours or find the perfect match of shade that you’re looking for.

All-in-all, you’ll get a slick, professional finish. Not only that, you have the creative eye of someone who does it for a living too.

Common painting and decorating costs

Painter and decorator prices will ultimately depend on:

  • The size of the room, wall or ceiling.
  • The condition of the room to start with.
  • If old wallpaper needs stripping first.
Some typical jobs Low High
Removing décor £75 £250
Wallpapering £100 £500
Removing painting £150 £125
Painting £75 £750

Planning permission for painting and decorating jobs

Planning permission is not generally required for internal decorating. If you live in a listed building, however, you should contact your Local Planning Authority.

Insurance for painting and decorating jobs

Most tradespeople should have public liability insurance to cover them against any damage done to your home – always ask your painter decorator this before you hire them.

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading for?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does it last?
  • Will they source all materials and equipment?
  • Can they help with colour schemes and/or matching colours?
  • Do they have examples and references for previous work?
