It is important that thorough preparation is carried out on any woodwork, render or metal, prior to application of paint. Bare wood, render or metal must have the appropriate primer applied before application of an undercoat and topcoat. Choosing the right paint for each surface is very important because the wrong paint applied to a given surface will result in a poorer finish and breakdown of the paint applied, which could lead to costly repair or replacement. Cracks, and holes in the surface must be filled ensuring no moisture can penetrate the surface. Preparation is a time consuming undertaking, but will lead to a better and longer lasting finish, that will save money in the long term. The application of paint carried out by myself is done with care and expertise, I also ensure that the paint only goes where it is supposed to and not splashed around on brickwork or floors.
