The price increased as there was more plaster which needed to be replaced than I had thought, but I was not surprised. Both the plasterer and Les asked me before they carried out the additional work and told me that there would be an extra charge, but that was reasonable for the amount of work which they did.

Within quoted time scale, on budget, didn't quibble if any minor changes requested and left house tidy at end of working day. Would recommend to others.

Les was outstanding. His price was very competitive, and all the work was complete within 2 days which was unbelievable considering the size and complexity of the valuted roof in the barn kitchen. He even finished edges neatly around all the exposed beams giving a thoroughly professional finish to the decorating job. Highly recommended. Ben - Tewkesbury.

Found Les very professional, and he definitely bends backwards to satisfy the job. Honestly les quote was the cheapest and I selected him based on how he came across and could see he knew his stuff. So I'm very glad I selected him as the job of completely decorating a 4 bedroom house was done on time, in budget and with a high quality. Also the plasterer's he selected were exceptional. So will highly recommend him to any one, as a matter of fact have already recommended to few of my friends.

Helen Webb's question

Due to holes being left in walls, we are having to remove woodchip paper in sons bedroom. However it looks like there’s also some paper underneath - I think it’s lining paper? Should I remove this as well (it’s torn away slightly around the holes). The woodchip is peeling off pretty easily in largish sections just dry (when I pick at it!) so I’m hoping not to have to get a steamer for removal. Is there any advice about the lining paper - should I remove it too? Would love to avoid getting a plasterer if possible simply due to cost, but if it would be best would accept it.

    Hi Helen, No need for plastering! I’ve been a decorator for years and unless the plaster is literally falling off the wall I try to avoid it. Take off all paper, lining as well. Clean walls with sugar soap and sand down. Then apply a mist coat (20% water added to contract matt), this will highlight all imperfections and allow the top coats of paint to adhere to the plaster. Once all imperfections are highlighted, you can fill, caulk, sand etc till they’re ready for painting. Dependant in how much filling there is, there are different fillers for the job.

Hi there. I'm looking to refurbish my kitchen by painting the existing cabinets (plus the trims and walls). The cabinets are glossy laminate so will require some prep work. Can anyone advise whether this is a specialist job - I don't know if a standard 'painter/decorator' would do this or if it requires someone who specialises in this work? Thanks.

    Hi Elizabeth. I am a painter and decorator who also spray paints kitchen units. To paint high gloss finished cupboards, after cleaning them and using a fine sandpaper to give them a key, the most important thing is to Prime them using the correct primer. There are two or three I could recommend. Once primed and prepared, again there are several top coats which we prefer using but any good eggshell or satin will adhere.
