 surface preparation 

PREPARING TO PAINT

We make sure that everything is protected and ready for painting from furniture to flooring for using brush and roller and protecting chandeliers and light fixtures to light switches, sockets, door handles, door hinges, windows and glass panelled doors for spray painting.

FILLING 

Filling can be as meticulous and thorough depending on your requirements as bringing the spot light to look for imperfections that a light bulb or normal lighting will not pick up to make sure you get the best possible finish for your interior. I can go as far as skimming and rendering on window cills ready to be sanded for a flat smooth and well-defined sharp edges for a brand new look no matter how bad the condition is. Also, to remove rotted wooden cills and recreate an indestructible and permanent cill using wood filler as well as reshaping any badly damaged window frame.

DUSTLESS SANDING

Our dust extraction system keeps the air clean and free from dust when working to sand down patched filler to smoothness providing a perfect finish and blending the filler perfectly with the rest of the wall, ceiling or woodwork surface without any scratch marks. With different sanding attachments, we are ready to take on the most detailed and most difficult jobs with ease such as bannisters and staircases.

CAULKING

Caulking is a simple process by squeezing caulk from the tube through the caulk gun onto joint surfaces such as the top of a skirting board and wall to fill the gaps by smoothing it with my finger first into shape and then smoothing it again with a wet sponge and then with my finger again to get a smooth and perfect blend. Caulking is the least visual part of the preparation work but when its done right, it contributes massively to the finest of details.

STANDARD MASKING

Get the perfect line every time between jointed surfaces such as skirting-to-wall after a few coats of paint has been applied. It hides the imperfections leaving you with a perfect finish.

What customers say about iDecorate

Fran Graham

Michael has done a wonderful job repairing the damage to our kitchen ceiling and wall after a water leak. He was very polite and professional, explaining what he was doing and why, tidied up after the work and left the wall looking brighter than before the leak! Great work – very happy to give him a recommendation.
