Providing that the old paintwork is in sound condition, there is no need to remove it. Once washed with sugar soap and rubbed down, it can actually form a very good base for new paint. Otherwise it should be stripped.

Whereas new wood needs to sanded, knotting solution applied and then primed before painting, unless the intention is to varnish or stain the wood.

Where necessary we will fix, remove or replace:
• Picture rails
• Dado rails
• Skirting boards
• Architrave and doors


Only once the walls are stripped of wallpaper, can we assess whether the best finish will be achieved through paper lining or plastering the walls.

Our plastering services include:
• Fixing or replacing plaster coving and cornicing
• Removing lath and plaster from ceilings and walls
• Hardwalling / bonding walls - repairing badly damaged walls before applying finishing plaster
• Studwork - building partition walls
• Drylining - prepare and fix plasterboard to walls
• Skimming walls and ceilings
• Re-skimming existing plasterwork and Artexed walls and ceilings
