This last week saw us painting and decorating a flat in north London. The client had just purchased this property near Essex Road in Islington. The place was in a bad decorative state, with several layers of old wallpaper and damage to the plaster work. We stripped all the wallpaper, repaired the walls with filler, then painted walls, ceilings and woodwork with white Dulux Trade paints.
Painter and Decorator in North London
We received the the request for this job at short notice. Painting and decorating this flat in north London had to be started soon as the client needed to move out of her old flat. We freed up time and worked through the Easter holidays to complete on the following Saturday. The wall paper stripping was particularly challenging. This needed to be soaked with soap and then steamed off with a wallpaper steamer. There was a lot of damage to the plaster, which needed to be repaired before painting the walls of this flat. We filled large holes before skimming over large cracks and uneven areas. This was then sanded back with a sander and dust extractor, to prevent dust settling through the house. We were then able to paint walls with mist coat before decorating the property throughout.
