    Install new kitchen & convert garage

    Florin did an excellent job clearing out my parent's old kitchen and fitting in the new one. He was really easy to work with and made my retired parents feel really comfortable with the work he did. Where ever possible Florin gave sound advice and adapted where possible. He planned everything out and the additional tradespeople he needed to bring in were all very professional also did a great job. The finished kitchen looks amazing and two months since he completed the job, my parents and I have no complaints. I would certainly highly recommend IFG to anyone needing a reliable and professional tradesman.

    Tiling bathroom walls

    Velibor was incredibly professional and his workmanship, can not be faulted and was to an exceptional standard. He had a tricky attic shower room to tile and a bathroom where a previous tiler had not done a very good job. He managed to correct the errors and I am pleased to say, that they now both look fantastic. I would highly recommend Velibor and have booked him for more work.

    Weeding/Cobweb clearing

    Richie was very friendly, helpful and certainly reasonable in terms of price. He worked around my busy schedule and completed the job very efficiently. He cleared all of the weeds from my gravel garden, which had been starting to take over the fence, within about 15 minutes. He also made sure to smooth over some of the displaced gravel once he’d removed the weeds, leaving the garden looking lovely again. I would definitely recommend Richie and will be contacting him again for repeat work should the weeds make a reappearance!

    Finishing touch to recently refitted shower room,

    Nick came very promptly after booking,and did a great job of painting our recently fitted shower room. The rather irregular wall surfaces are very skilfully painted, and no smears or drips anywhere. Job done, all clearing up done, no mess at all. He even replaced a failed light bulb, so thanks Nick for a very good job

    Hi novice_40, firstly, best of luck with your project - i hope you enjoy it. newly plastered walls/ceilings always need to be suitably sealed before painting begins (otherwise the paint will sit on the surface & come off very easily). you can do this either by applying a couple of emulsion 'mist coats' (dilute an initial solution of 60:40 water to emulsion, then a second mist coat with the ratios reversed, to thicken the coverage but still watery enough to allow it to continue to sink into the plaster below). or, as tom suggests, you can buy a purpose made primer. if the plasterer has 'over polished' the walls, this latter option will be the best, as the plaster will not allow the mist coat to seep in & adhere properly. if you have a large area/several walls, then the most cost effective way for you will be the mist coats - these are industry standards and a perfectly acceptable method. ordinary white emulsion is suitable and both affordable & easily available. start misting from the lowest point on the plaster and move up & out with your roller. the mist coat dries rapidly & this bottom up method stops you getting fat splashes of paint onto the plaster. cut in around the edges with a brush. if the ceiling is also bare, then progress onto the ceiling. within the hour, your walls will be ready for the second mist coat. apply this in the same order as the first. a word of caution: even with the best intentions, mist coats can involve a bit of splashing, so make sure your flooring is protected & the sockets temporarily turned off & covered. once the 2 mist coats have fully dried you can more easily assess the plasterer's handiwork. use a spatula to fill any minor dents & give these a light sanding, once cured. anything major & get the plasterer back to resolve it. you don't want to be sanding down large areas of plaster, as this will cause a rough & spoilt finish that will need copious filling & sanding to put right. now, use a proper water-based wood primer for your bare woodwork - for the same reasons as you need to seal fresh plaster. a primer-undercoat is perfectly suitable - though you will need 2 coats: one to prime, a second to undercoat. a third coat is optional, but we'll get to that in a mo. alternatively, you can buy 2 separate paints: one a specified wood primer & the second a specified undercoat. whilst the primer should be water-based, the undercoat can be oil-based - though only if your satinwood is also oil-based. this method can improve the longevity of the finish. once your primer/first layer of primer-undercoat is dry, caulk your woodwork. next, move back to your ceiling/walls. this time begin with the ceiling (either silk or matt are suitable finishes - but silk is a more reflective surface that draws the eye & can accentuate any imperfections). get your first coat on. cut in free-hand, moving your brush from 1/2 inch away from the corner inwards towards the join as your hand steadies & finds the line. don't try to leap straight into the corner unless you've got a steady hand. whether you cut in before or after rollering is down to personal preference. i prefer beforehand as it avoids a visible 'tram line' created by dragging your brush through a rollered section. whichever you choose, ensure you keep a wet edge (ie: don't allow the paint to dry between cutting in & rollering). allow the edges to dry, then move down to the walls. get your first coat of dulux endurance on. cut in free-hand. once dried, repeat the process for your second coats. if you are prepared to wait up to a couple of days between coats (dep. on drying conditions) for the paint to fully cure, you can use (yellow) frog tape to help you achieve a clean line between surfaces. be very careful when removing it however, as this can pull the paint back off if it isn't fully cured. finally, give your woodwork a light sanding to remove any splashes of paint & nibs of rough wood fibres. ideally, apply another undercoat, to improve the coverage & durability, then (when dry) apply your satinwood top coat. again, if you're happy the walls have cured sufficiently, frog tape can give you a razor sharp line where the satinwood meets the emulsion. take care when peeling it away. there you have it! any questions, feel free to give me a holla. meantime, i hope this helps. happy painting! best, alix james decorators

    Hi, a mist coat is essential when preparing fresh plaster for decoration. diy stores will sell you an expensive product specifically for this purpose, but any light colour of water based emulsion is absolutely fine, so using up spare magnolia is a good idea. i mix up the paint and water in a bucket, and apply with a large brush to minimise the splatter. i know others use rollers, which is quicker, but also messier! once the mist coat has been applied, you cando any filling required, and then get on with the emulsion of choice. i hope this has answered your question. regards, david clarke (ds clarke building services)

    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
