Paint 1 room [end of lease]
"Nice guy, done a good job of painting our bathroom. "
"I cannot speak highly enough of Michael and his colleague. He is an extremely conscientious and skilled painter and decorator. He was so willing and cheerful and took enormous trouble to make a really good job of painting our 3 bedroom flat from top to bottom. He was always punctual and reliable and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation whatever in asking him to do further work for us. He comes with the highest possible recommendation from us. Thank you, Michael, for your excellent work. We were lucky to find you! "

What does a painting services in London include?
Usually, painting services will include the full process from setup and preparation to painting and final clean up. Some common painting services include:
Interior wall painting
Painting your room or interior walls will give your space a fresh new look, help reduce cooking smells, control mould, and remove fingerprints and marks. A professional painter will choose paints to suit the style and function of your office, house, bedroom, apartment, or bathroom.
Preparation for the paint service starts with removing or covering furniture and putting down drop sheets, along with washing any wall surfaces. Your local painter will repair any surface holes then sand rough areas and prime if needed. To paint walls and ceilings, your painter will start by cutting in with a small brush, before covering the remaining surfaces with a roller brush. They may apply 2-3 coats to create a smooth, even surface. Finally, your painter will clean up by washing out the brushes and rollers, folding up drop any cloths, and removing the tape from windows and outlets.
It’s important to maintain paintwork for your home’s exterior, not only for your home’s value and first impressions but because it’s constantly exposed to the elements. You’ll need to repaint weatherboards every few years, plus fences, gutters, window-sills, and doorways every 5-10 years to maintain a fresh look.
When you hire a painter, they’ll usually sand back and prep the area, taking off any cracked or peeling paint, and then prime and paint the surfaces. They’ll choose a paint designed for your climate and structure to ensure it lasts. Once they’re finished, your painter will inspect for any missed spots and check the edges are all neat.
Graffiti and murals
Your business, nursery, or feature wall will stand out from the crowd with a graffiti mural, or larger-than-life artwork. If you have a design ready to go, your painter can enlarge this onto your walls, or design a custom piece for your home or office.
Your painter will prepare the surface by cleaning it carefully, putting down drop sheets, and painting a base colour if needed. Then they’ll get to work on your artwork, using a ladder to reach each part of the painting. They’ll likely reference an existing drawing or photo throughout the process to ensure they have every detail right. Once they’re finished, they’ll pack up their equipment, wash out any brushes used, and remove the drop sheet. Some artwork may be finished in just a few hours, while larger, highly detailed pieces may take weeks.
Many painters are experienced in paint removal, too. Since paint stripping is generally a messy and time-consuming job, it’s a good idea to outsource it to a professional. Some common reasons for paint stripping include new colour for your interior doors, removing wood stain from kitchen cabinets so you can update the colour, or stripping cracked paint from a surface so it’s ready for repainting.
Your professional painter can also help with graffiti removal and repainting, as well. Depending on the surface, they’ll use a mixture of scraping tools, sandpaper, and chemicals to remove as much paint as is needed, ensuring proper safety and ventilation throughout.

Paint a garden wall white
Newbury Park, Greater London
17th Sep 2022
There is a wall that runs along the side of a property I am refurbishing. The wall was originally painted white but has become quite weathered. The entire wall is probably 4 metres long. However, I would like to start by getting the section that is immediately adjacent to the front door painted. In some places, the paint has puckered so might need sanding down. I would need the required person to supply the white paint and equipment as there is none available at the property. - Due date: Needs to be done on Sunday, 18 September 2022
Luca was extremely knowledgeable and skilled. Did an excellent painting job. Will definitely hire again for future jobs.

Painting section of ceiling with rooflight inset
Kingsland, Greater London, E8
25th Sep 2022
We have some water marks caused by condensation that we'd like painted over on our lounge ceiling. We would just like the section doing, rather than the whole ceiling - so, someone who is proficient at feathering and softening the edges between old and new. The area is approximately 2.5m x 0.5m - and the inset area is about 0.2m deep. So - the task would be to paint the surrounding area with water marks and the skylight inset, please. We have paint - but you will need a telescopic paintbrush/roller as the rooflight is set over stairs - approx 2.5/3m drop to floor.
