    Urgent - one day internal painting

    We needed some urgent help painting walls in our two-bed flat and Ray came to the rescue at very short notice. He came on time, cleaned up after himself and was pleasant, polite, an very hardworking. He did a great job in tricky circumstances, working fast to help us get the flat ready, and we were impressed by how much he managed to paint in a single day. I would definitely recommend hiring him.

    Internal Home Refurbishment

    The quality of the work executed by Unlimited construction at my house is very, very high and commendable. The work, which included interior finishing and decoration of an extension (new en-suite master bedroom with changing room) and the existing building (detached 4 bedroom house), was professionally done with some suggestions to enhance the work. The company also built a brick shed for me in the back garden. I will definitely recommend Florin and his company to anyone looking to execute an extension and/or interior finishing and decoration.

    Hi there, i am a painter and decorator by trade with plastering and tiling skills. when new plaster is first applied i always cover it with a layer of pva first. once this has dried i will apply the first coat and let that dry for 24 hrs. the second coat is then applied. over the last however many years, this method has always produced a long lasting finish. dulux is a good paint product but i am starting to favor some of the crown products that are now being released. if i can be of any help then please feel free to contact me.

    Oil based gloss does discolour and go yellow over time as the oil content comes to the surface causing the discolouration. in future do not use oil based paints. use water based gloss, eggshell and satin instead. these water based paints are getting better as the years go by since they were first introduced to the market. i'm going to share one of my top trade secrets...when i'm applying water based gloss, eggshell etc on to existing oil based paint, i do not want to spend hours excessively rubbing down in order to provide an excellent bond between the 2 types of paint that would not otherwise adhere well to each other. so instead i use a special water based paint that 'etches' itself onto almost any surface, so it keys itself onto the gloss!...then you paint your new water based paint system on top of the special water based etching paint. if you are doing spindles for example, you wouldn't believe how much time this saves. this is the paint: zinsser 123 plus (yep, silly name!) http://www.zinsseruk.com/product/bulls-eye-1-2-3-plus/ you can generally only buy it from decorating trade shops such as leyland and brewers, or order it online. it's not the cheapest paint on the market, but i know from experience...you get what you pay for! all the paints and products i use are the most expensive on the market but my workmanship lasts and i save huge amounts of labour time when on a job by using the tools, paints and products. follow my trade top tips and you'll too achieve results you wouldn't otherwise be able to!!! happy painting

    Hi tom, if i am assuming correctly that it is an old property you have,sounds like to me that the re-skimming has been done on the original plaster which is ok to a certain extent if the original stuff is pretty sound & solid but unfortunately you will always run the risk of developing cracks with a re-skim on old,original plaster. if you are filling cracks and they keep reappearing,then it looks like the backing plaster is in a really poor,unstable condition & should never have been re-skimmed onto. the ammount of times i've been to a job where customers have had a 'plasterer' to re-skim a room out & cracks have appeared everywhere because they have given them bad advice is shocking. only solution really to eleminate this problem is go back to the brick and start again with a complete re-plaster as no matter how many times you fill the cracks,they will keep on coming back and over time will get worse i'm afraid! hope this helps, carl. (p.s. if it's a new type property & it's all boarded out,then i'm flummuxed! ;)

    Substructure's right if you want a 100% finish... how ever if cost is an issue then simply get all paper off, sugersoap is ok to clean paste, but i've always applied a white vinyl matt base coat straight after stripping then leave the walls for 24 hours to dry. once dry the white base coat will seal the paste back and stop paste contaminating further coats applied. filling and scraping is done on top of this base coat and being white it'll highlight all bad areas. i've always done this system and never had a problem with the paste... good luck tim
