Paint & Painting



  • The finishing is all important but the preparatory work is critical to the quality of the end product.
  • Ensure correct paints are used in specific areas like kitchens and bathrooms, doors and window frames.
  • Look for sloppy work and make sure it’s cleaned up. Ensure angles are cut in to keep lines sharp.
  • The quality of paint has no impact at first, but over time, better quality paints maintain their sheen and finish where cheaper paints fade and chip more readily.
  • Is the preparatory work of a sufficient standard – filling holes, touching up plaster sanding, use of correct undercoats?
  • Are the paints being used the brands you specified or cheaper alternatives?
  • Have the painters got the correct colours as specified?
