Last week we completed a project painting and decorating in Walthamstow, East London. A hallway and staircase over two floors and a new attic room needed to be painted from scratch in a Victorian domestic property .
German Painter and Decorator in Walthamstow, East London. Painting and Decorating from £120 per room inclusive Dulux Paint
This was a painting an decorating job in Walthamstow, East London for a German client of ours. An entrance with staircase to the first floor, a landing and a new loft room with the stairs leading to it needed to be painted. Unfortunately we found ourselves once again having to deal with the sub-standard craftsmanship of the builders before us. The new staircase didn’t fit and none of the wood lined up correctly. The plaster work was rough around the edges and needed quite a bit more filling as would normally be the case. This made this painting and decorating project in Greenwich more complicated than expected.
The walls on the ground floor and lower staircase were in a terrible condition too. We’ve had to skim these with Polycell and sand them smooth before applying 2 coats of Dulux vinyl paint.
Much of the old woodwork was in a terrible state as well. It seemed to us that for the last 2 or three decades the woodwork had just been covered with more and more paint without proper prep work.
This really wasn’t your average painting and decorating job. There were a lot of things we didn’t expect and a lot of extra work. Nonetheless we managed to bring it in on budget and more or less on time.
