Hi Forum,

Quick one. I need to have two rooms painted in my house - not a huge amount of work but they really need some good prep work as that is my bug-bear.

My experience so far has been that I can find a painter who is happy to paint but the skill is in finding someone who cares about proper prep. Sanding for old gloss & cleaning, patching holes, treating if needed. If the prep is good then the finish is good! (Also some cornicing work also is needed.

Any suggestions of a good company / workman that you have worked with?

Cheers and thanks!!!

Pay them by the day, not on a price!
Any P & D will happy sand and fill as long as you want to pay him/her.
The finish is about the preparation, but time is money
