I do like to do a thorough job when I am painting a room. It makes for a professional finish and can save money for you, the customer, in the long run.
Here are just a few of the ‘extras’ I provide:
• Door handles and window catches. Wherever possible I will remove door handles and window catches prior to painting. I don’t think anything looks much worse than a paint-spattered window catch. The same goes for light switches and sockets.
• External door edges. If you have a front or back external door which constantly jams or scrapes, take a look at the edges. I would bet that they have been left unpainted and are bare timber. This exposure allows moisture to penetrate and the door will then shrink or swell. Unfortunately, although I can paint the edges and ease doors, the damage already done may be irreparable.
