Common Stairs

A statement staircase will wow your guests - less of a staircase than a showcase - and you may only need to keep the stairs clean and balustrades and stair spindles polished to have a stunning focal point to your decor.

Wallpaper Stripping

Before you begin papering, your goal should be to make the wall surface as smooth as possible. After this is done, shine a light (work lamp, flashlight) sideways across the wall's surface. Irregularities will cast shadows, allowing you to see if you missed anything.

Also allow any spackling, plaster, primer to dry completely prior to hanging any wallpaper.

Ames Taping

What is Ames Taping? The tape and joint cement is only applied to the plasterboard joints and screw holes rather than the whole area, resulting in a smaller percentage of materials being used than traditional plastering. The finished product leaves the walls and ceilings seamless, smooth and ready to decorate.


Two of the most common forms of interior wall materials are plaster and drywall. Plaster has been used since ancient times. The earliest plaster was usually made of lime, sand, animal hair and water. Egyptian tombs, such as that of Queen Nefertari, feature paintings on the plaster walls that line their interiors  Ancient Roman homes are known to have been decorated with fresco artwork. Frescos are works of art that are created with different pigments on wet plaster


Design led interior mouldings. All our mouldings are made from high density polymers. They are lightweight and easy to install. They are also waterproof (ideal for Skirting) and come pre-primed ready for the paint finish of your choice.

Spray Painting

  • Spraying of cladding to industrial units
  • Spraying and lacquering of wooden surfaces
  • Spraying of emulsion to ceilings and walls
  • Multi-coloured/textured finishes to walls and ceilings
  • Bespoke finishes to unusual objects
  • Spraying of shop fronts and retail units

Fence Painting

Without stain, even new fences and decks quickly turn grey and start to mildew. It's so easy to fix. Best of all, staining your fence is a great investment because it protects your fence from extreme weather for years to come.
