What does a painting service 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.

Exterior painting

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.

Paint stripping

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.

Filling/sanding/painting walls and wood downstairs

£450

West Ham, Greater London

13th Dec 2022

I have a fairly newly plastered house (mix of back to brick and skimming based on quality of previous plaster) and am looking for someone to touch up the plaster downstairs/neaten the edges and repaint, as well as filling/sanding/painting skirting and architraves. Walls to be covered are open plan living space, kitchen, hallway and the wall going up the stairs on one side - I've attached photos. You can see some filling has been done already, and it has already been painted. With the cold weather new cracks have been appearing - all hairline cracks. Nothing too alarming but quite a few on the wall going up the stairs, not that many anywhere else. I've ordered flexible filler to help prevent recurrence. The ceiling is mostly fine, there may just be a few small patches needing touch-up although I would like the ceilings painted too. Edit to add: there are 2 previously damp (now dry) areas due to a previous guttering problem. I have some Zinsser sealing materials for these areas. Most of the skirting is original but there are a few new sections. I've included photos of both so you get an idea. The architraves are new (3.5 doorways). One very small additional thing - a small amount of new skirting in the bathroom upstairs needs filling and painting (about 1.5m total). I will provide filler and (emulsion/wood satin) paint as well as parking. I will also look to clear the space a lot more before starting. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Jamie and his colleagues were really efficient and hard-working, and my walls look fantastic. Highly recommended!
