Up to 50% of the time a paint job can be taken up with preparation.
This can include stripping off old paint or wallpaper, sanding down, repairing or filling minor to large holes or cracks.
Sometimes areas are missed and it can be harder to spot imperfections. Poor surface preparation can lead to wallpaper peeling off or wrinkling or if using paint, it can cause hairline cracks or the paint to flake off.
Investing in a professional painter and decorator can save you time and money in the long run.
