  • Do your homework and examine the condition of your property!

– Damp patches need a sealant added before starting with the painting work. – Ceilings that are stained with nicotine will need to be cleaned very well before any painting can begin. – Peeling gloss on woodwork will require a ‘burn off. – If there is wallpaper, better remove it yourself.

All these jobs take time and cost extra money, so if you don’t want to pay just DIY, it is actually an easy thing to do.
  • The bigger projects mean better prices.

It is better to hire a professional painter and decorator for a large job instead of several small, one-off projects. Make a simple calculation and you will see that painting two rooms at the same time will always be cheaper than adding the costs for a single room together.

  • Keep costs low by hiring out of season.

At a certain period of the year, painters are super busy and as a result, their prices go higher. Summer is usually the worst time to start your project as it is the peak season for interior painting. Try to avoid this time and get the job well done in a low season month. January/ February is the best for finding lower prices! We are happy to share our experience and help with anything else due to your particular needs. Do not waste more time – send us your request!
