Garden before clearing Garden after clearing When you are selling your house, I can help you achieve that good first impression for prospective purchasers. Similarly, when you have just moved house, I can get it looking as you would like, both inside and out.
 (Garden Preparation pictures above)
In this example, the garden was very overgrown, neglected for a long time and needed extreme cutting back and clearing in a short space of time (24 tonne bags!!)

 

I provide a very thorough cleaning, painting and protecting service. I achieve a long lasting result, by ensuring good surface preparation, with any unsound material replaced and by always using tried and tested products.

 

I provide a comprehensive cleaning service, including difficult to reach places like gutters, so that as well as your property looking good, rain water flows where it should. I will also inspect the condition of these areas and let you know if anything needs repairing. My advice will always be balanced and honest. If repair is needed, I will be pleased to carry this out, if you wish me to.

 

Exterior Decorating Exterior Decorating Exterior Decorating Exterior Decorating

 

This is an example of the exterior decorating service I provide. I stripped off all of the old covering, ensured all the surfaces were in a good clean and sound condition and then repainted and retreated the whole of the exterior.

The pictures above (numbers 3-6) show an example of the exterior decorating service I provide. I stripped off all of the old covering, ensured all the surfaces were in a good clean and sound condition and then repainted and retreated the whole of the exterior.

Oak framed windows restored A client had moved into a 19th century property with many very attractive features, including the oak framed windows. The windows had, however, suffered from the effects of time and weather and also some unsympathetic alteration in the past. It was a very satisfying task to restore these window frames back to their original beauty and to treat them thoroughly so that they are protected from the effects of the weather for several years to come.

 

A property had some significant damp problems. I found and fixed the sources of the damp, removed all damaged material, repaired, re-plastered, and redecorated. The result was a complete transformation.

 

Soft wood windows restored

 

(picture 9 above)

These are soft wood windows in a nearly 300 year old cottage that had suffered from rot. The brickwork was also in need of repair. I repaired and repainted the woodwork and made good the brickwork.

 

These are, of course, just some examples of what I do, whatever you have in need of repair or renovation please contact me and I will either be able to carry out the work or, if not, provide advice.

 

Interior refit and decorate

 

Over time algae forms on some outside surfaces, making them slippery and unsafe at times, as well as degrading the appearance. Pressure washing is a good way to remove this and engrained dirt. With block paving I will pressure wash and then brush in fresh sand between the blocks.
