Advice is given as to approximate odour levels etc. Wherever possible we prefer adequate ventilation at
all times during progress of the work. All tins etc are sealed and stored at the end of and during each day.
If you require specialist paints because of any personal health needs etc, please ask us and for a small
additional charge special low odour and/or fast drying paints will be used.
Type of finish:
It is worth considering what type of finish you want for walls. For example, is it an area that has lots
of traffic or where childrens dirty paws will make marks? in which case a silk or soft sheen finish is probably better;
the same goes for any areas that might be better wipe-clean such as kitchens and bathrooms. Alternatively
living ares such as dining rooms, bedrooms and lounges are usually better in the softer warner matt finish.
We can also advise as to relevant colours and shades best suited to various types of rooms/spaces,
furnishings, period of house, and architectural features. We will not impose a design or advice but work with you to achieve
a solution for what you have in mind.
