Andrew is absolutely charming and a pleasure to have working here.' He is quiet and gets on with his work, trying very hard to please. We will be having him back in a couple of weeks when our builders have completed works to finish some jobs.

An excellent job. Andrew kept us informed about what he was doing and why. He would tell us if he was going to be delayed and always ensured everything was left tidy each evening. We would have no hesitation in using Andrew again.

Very happy with the overall job done. The most refreshing part of the job was the fact that Andrew took the time to be open about costs up front so I knew exactly what the bill would be.

Andrew was very keen, polite & got on & did a good job. It was a pretty straightforward room paint job. I just wish my son had wanted a mural as I understand this is Andrews true talent.

Paul Curnick's question

Should I pay a deposit prior to the work commencing?

  • Andras Schein-Illes's Answer
    Sat 5 May 2018 7:5am

    Dear Paul, Coming from a tradesman’s point of view, paying a deposit could be very helpful. It could cover the initial cost of materials and labour to start the job, which can be quite significant on a bigger job. Obviously be careful who you pay to and when. We all heard about disappearing tradesmans, who recieved deposit and then never showed up. Make sure that there is a written agreement in place before sending any money and check your choosen tradesperson as throughly as possible. Hope this helps! Andrew

Kerry Hume's question

What's the approximate cost of getting a front door painted after damage with furniture delivery (paint scraped off)?

  • Andras Schein-Illes's Answer
    Wed 2 May 2018 6:37am

    Dear Kerry, The cost of repainting your door could depend on a number of factors. I would estimate between £50 to £150. Does it need a lot of filling/repair? This could vary the time it takes to complete the job. Minor filling can be sanded and painted on the same day, while extensive repairs take more time to dry and sand. Are you supplying the materials? Or you just looking for labour costs? Is it going to be water based paint or oil based? Drying times are a lot faster using waterbased products, thus several coats could be applied on the same day. Do you plan to change the colour of your door? If you wish to change the original colour, it takes longer as you’ll need undercoat and two top coats to achieve a nice, solid finish. While if you stick with the original colour, you can get away patch painting the repaired bits, then giving one top coat overall to finish it. Hope this helps!
