Methodology:

With a sound grounding gained through many years' experience in material compatibility, our clients are assured of durable, superior finishes, on a wide range of surfaces, whether interior or exterior.

Preparation is the key to all quality finishes, from the stripping of old, damaged and unstable surfaces to the application of the new. The very finest materials are used and acquired from the best manufacturers and suppliers.

 

 

 

 

 

Written job specifications are provided for all clients, site inspections and advice on design, colours and procedures. Sample finishes are produced where necessary.
