An alphabetical list of the services we offer   

We cannot emphasise enough the need for correct treatment of any joinery products after fitting and would always recommend the use of a qualified painter and decorator.
Very often we have seen a piece which has cost hundreds of pounds (or more) spoilt by the finishing off someone who claims to be a tradesman, painting looks easy but like any other trade it takes years to perfect and I am still impressed by the quality of finish achieved by professional decorators.  
For instance the major manufactures of exterior doors  will only guarantee their products if stored flat and decorated correctly with in a fixed time scale. The complete door needs to be sealed including the sides, top and bottom – the major cause for a door to rub is swelling caused by lack of painting to the bottom and a suitable finish may be knotting ( a shellac to stop knots “bleeding” resin), primer, filling as needed, patch priming, two undercoats, one of two topcoats depending on coverage.
