Protect floors etc with sheets, strip wallpaper, repair cracks and re-line, emulsion (2 coats). Emulsion ceilings (2 coats). Prepare and paint door and window areas (undercoat and 1 top coats. Strip old splash back tile crease around kitchen work surface and sink and re-tile. Procure all materials except tiles for tiling. Clean up on completion.
 

"Very courteous, pleasant and considerate professional- took great pains to minimize disruption and produce our excellent end product. Extremely hard working, putting in 8-9 hours daily. Highly skilled, meticulous workmanship using high quality materials. Work took longer than anticipated due to unforeseen problems with wallpaper and tile removal but most willing to negotiate additional cost to actual satisfaction. Worth every penny and I would recommend Mr Arnold unreservedly."

1730’s end terrace flint cottage – exterior decorating. Windows particularly in poor condition involving some joinery as well as resin filer repairs. On average 30% putty had failed and needed replacing. Heavy build up of paint over the years which hampered closing properly, these areas needed paint burnt of to free movement. Almost all frame edge seals were replaced with flexible oil based mastic. Door steps/thresholds stripped back to bare sound wood. All products used (except putty and frame sealant) from Dulux Trade Weather shield system or Polycell Trade. Customer delighted. Dulux 2 year guarantee forms completed and activated.
 

"A A Decor are a delight and we would not use any other decorator, as their standards are so high, as is their knowledge of the products. 100% satisfaction."
