Plastering, Painting & Decorating

Would you spend a lot of money on expensive paints or wallpapers to use them over old, tired, scratched and uneven walls or ceilings? Would you buy expensive Italian or Spanish handmade bathroom tiles or kitchen tiles to cover with them old, loosen, blown plaster or unlevelled walls? Of course, the only answer is no. You would not.  You would like all substrates to be perfectly prepared for any type of covering. Flat, straight, even, free of mold and flaking paint walls and ceilings give painter and decorator a chance to offer you best possible finish. They give tiller an opportunity to finish his job to a higher standard and within a shorter time when floors and walls are perfectly prepared.

How to achieve that perfect finish then? What sort of materials or techniques shall be used to make your project better? Which solution is cost effective? Which one is long lasting?

Every painting and decorating job or project is build with a proportion of 70% of preparation and 30% of painting and decorating. Preparation is a key! 

Typically when walls and ceilings are not drastically damaged, painters and decorators simply fill up or patch imperfections in places, then once filler is dry painters and decorators smooth the walls with fine grade sand paper. Painters and decorators at Cotswold Home Makeovers use electric, orbital sanders and extract dust straight away to save time consuming cleaning and also to keep your house clean and tidy as much as possible, so you don’t have to arrange for general cleaning after painting and decorating job is complete.  There is also one more such important factor worth to mention. As you pay for our time spent on your project, the less time painters and decorators spend on cleaning, the more of your budget stays in your pocket.

Old properties usually require more attention in terms of preparation, especially with challenging, time consuming aspects of stripping wallpaper or chip-wood off the walls and ceilings. With this such projects painters and decorators always uncover some unforeseen areas which need to be properly addressed. Typical challenges such as blown plaster, crumbling plaster, cracked plaster or in general damaged plaster can be easily improved by skilful plasterer. Filling up or patching method is no longer useful at that stage. However thin plaster skim coat solves all types of problems at once. At Cotswold Home Makeovers we have a team of experienced plasterers ready to plaster jobs as small as one wall up to entire house if necessary.

Wet plaster needs a time to get dry before painters and decorators apply paint on it. A quick base coat of water-based emulsion will soak into new plaster creating stable substrate to apply coats of any type of paints such as vinyl matt, durable matt, silk and more. And also will un-reveal small imperfections which are easy to address by experienced painter and decorator. Once walls are smooth and even we are ready to apply top coats to transform your house into home.

“Tom was exceptional in all ways. They did the interior of our house in 2016; I did not hesitate to invite them back to do the exterior in 2017 while we were away. Tom visited neighbours to say work was being done and hoped would not disturb; he and his team were polite and punctual and always cleared up each day; they liaised when windows needed to be left open; they were very tidy indoors; they came back and did all ‘touching up’ after we had hung picture and moved in furniture. They were all times super-helpful and courteous. And their work was top class professional. + fair priced!”

“I have been really impressed with this company from the outset. The quote was sent to me quickly and was very detailed so I knew exactly what to expect. The work has been completed to a really high standard and complies with the regulations for a listed building. We have had lots of comments about how smart it looks and it has really refreshed the look of the building. We had a team of men on site so it didn’t take as long as I expected and they were very polite and tidy. I’m really pleased and it’s nice to find a company that does what it promises on time!”

“Because this company had done such a good job on my old house I got them to fit a new kitchen and build an arch into the dining room. Another superb job. Just so delighted with the work and the service. Thank you Tom and team.”

“Tom’s team did a fantastic job on our bathroom which was a hell-hole before they started. Tomasz and Martin were punctual each day, very friendly and hard-working and left the place tidy at the end of each working day. I can highly recommend them.”
