Murray has done a fantastic job for us, he communicated very well throughout, has a great eye for detail and was a pleasure to deal with. The job was a big one: repair and redecorate a tenement stairwell which hadn’t seen a paintbrush for several decades. Murray organised the scaffold, painters and plasterers. The result is truly amazing, looks like new again, can’t fault it at all. Thank you to Murray and his team. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Balgreen.

Best experience I've had getting work done in our flat. Murray was polite, friendly and professional throughout, as well as incredibly flexible and neat/tidy. He and his team did a great job painting the exterior of all our windows. All aspects of the work was discussed and explained. Very happy, will be coming back in future.

Richard Hammond's question
Fri 3 Aug 2018 15:27pm

Hi, my son has roped me in to decorate a room. Has put lining paper on plaster wall as wants "warm to touch" feel. Painted on first base coat of cheap emulsion and lots of bubbles! Suspect wall not sized adequately and paper not pasted thoroughly! Bubbles disappear though as paint dries and walls look great again. My questions: should I cut, reglued bubbles etc after painting top coats, or is it best to just leave them to dry out naturally. Cutting and reposting does spoil finish. Should I size any other plaster walls with trade contract emulsion, or is it best to size with an oil based paint? Any help much appreciated as want to make sure it's a good job! Richard

    You should size plaster walls before papering with either wallpaper paste or pva glue When you’ve lined the walls The paper sometimes will bubble if you’ve not let the paper dry first also If the bubbles have completely dried back you’ve got away with it the will bubble up with next coat but will dry back if the done that the first time

I removed some torn lining paper from a wall as it was ripped, the lot came off without any water etc and the plaster behind it was very flaky, I sanded this down and mist coated it twice and then put fresh lining paper on top but the lining paper will not stay down, I have reglued the edges that are coming apart but this just keeps drying out and parting more each time. Can you advise what to do next? Is it possible to cross line in with another layer of lining paper?

    Hi sounds to me it’s the loose plaster on the wall I’m afraid I would stir up it completely back to wall again Then scrape any loose plaster Fill any bad areas with easy fill (any good paint supplier will sell it ) Sand all edges away Apply a coat of oil based undercoat to wall allow a day to dry Then put your lining paper up This will work I hope this helps
