Testimonials for interior painting and decorating jobs

Listed under Blog, Painting Posted Aug 09 2009

It is a big deal having Testimonials for interior painting and decorating jobs. There is nothing better than client feedback to keep a craftsman on track. A second pair of eyes, a different perspective, input from someone independent with skin in the game. It all helps hone skills and services.

Alderley Edge – Testimonial Feb 2009

Turn of the century home with original cornices, picture rails, high ceilings, natural pine doors. Armed with colour schedules, I redecorated the hall, stairs and landing, lounge, dining room and kitchen. There was water damage on the kitchen ceiling, so we overboarded and reskimmed it before re-painting. 

 “You are doing a fantastic job of keeping the dust down.”

Michael C.

Wilmslow – Jan 2009

We overboarded and skimmed a large lounge-dining room before fixing new coving. I stripped the wallpaper, filled and cross-lined the walls and hung 17 rolls of wallpaper. The woodwork was prepared and finished with gloss. The carpets had to stay down, so I sheeted them with plastic for the duration of the job. I returned later to cross-line and emulsion the walls in the kitchen. The flooring was very precious, so I protected it with heavy duty paper.

Bill D. regularly commented,

“Are you rubbing down again?”

Prestbury – March 2009

A long, narrow kitchen / breakfast room had been modified over the years. The kitchen units were a mis-match of wood and laminate doors. I primed and hand-painted the kitchen units so they all matched. Another lovely feature was the tongued and grooved ceiling. I sealed the knots, filled undercoated and finished it in eggshell.

After I had finished protecting the floors and worktops, Mr M. commented,

“Did you use to be a surgeon in an earlier life?”

1 – Complete redecoration of remodelled ground floor and extension, including hand-painted kitchen.

2 – Hallway, landing, open plan lounge / dining room plus stairs and hallway. I protected all floors with heavy duty paper, before sanding the walls, filling, cross-lining and painting with emulsion. I prepared the woodwork, filled, and applied 2 undercoats and 2 coats of Satinwood.

3 – There was plenty of work in the 10 doors and full gallery-style bannisters on the hall, stairs and landing. I prepared and painted everything with 2 undercoats and on my recommendation finished with 2 coats of satinwood. The master bedroom included feature wallpaper on one wall. I redecorated 2 ensuite bathrooms, one of the ceilings we re-boarded and skimmed, leaving it as good as new.

The customer was used to glossy woodwork, but when I had finished, she said the less shiny satin look was preferable.

I was asked to redecorate a small utility room that had recently been modified. On a closer look I could also see the long-term effects of an old water leak on the ceiling. The woodwork was untouched. I completely protected the floors and units with paper and plastic sheeting and used 3M low tack blue masking tape on all the woodwork. The ceiling stains were sealed with Zinsser BIN pigmented shellac, and painted with white emulsion. The walls ended up a strong green vinyl matt. It looks very sharp.

Mrs J. commented

“How considerate to lay paper on the floor outside the utility room.”
