Frequently Asked Questions.

What do I have to do in order to get ready for the painters?

We will ask that you remove valuables from the room and ensure that pets are safely contained. We will move furniture, window treatments and fixtures. On completion of the painting we will place all items back in their correct location.

How do I choose paint colors?

We can help you select colors with color charts. It is a good idea to look through magazines, make a list of the colors of your furnishings, we will get color samples and test it. If you want a complicated color scheme, it may be a good idea to hire a color consultant.

How soon can you start painting & how long does it take to complete?

Once the job is scheduled, you will be given an approximate starting date. We will call you to confirm start date a day or two before work begins. In most cases we can begin within 1 to 2 weeks. Even at peak seasons, lead-time is never more than 3 weeks.
If it is necessary to get your property painted immediately, we can probably make special arrangements to paint right away or on the weekend.
We are available for both commercial and residential customers who need work done during weekends.

Is plastering messy?

There is a little dust from the plaster but It’s not that messy, we make every effort to ensure a clean job.
All surfaces, walls, windows and doors will be cleaned before completion. Any fixtures and fitting that are removed for plastering, will be refitted.

Can you plaster onto any wall or ceiling?

The background is the most important part of plastering and it is not always possible to just skim over any wall or ceiling. Skim plaster should only be applied to a thickness of around 2-4 mm.
Walls that are back to brick, in very poor condition or heavy Artex may need plaster boarding or floating with backing plaster first. Ceilings that have many cracks or are too badly damaged may need over boarding with plasterboard before a plaster skim finish.

 

Do I need to remove furniture?

If possible please clear as much furniture from the intended areas of work.

Are bathroom renovations expensive?

The short answer is “it depends”. There are many contributing factors that go into pricing out your job; things like how extensive the amount of work is that you need, what fixtures are you installing, and how much of the original bathroom is going to remain and how much needs to be torn out and rebuilt.
For instance, some renovations only cost a few hundred dollars, but that only includes touching up the walls and possibly replacing light fixtures. It also depends on how much of the project you are able to do, and how much you need a professional to do for you.
