Exterior House Painting & Decorating
It’s not just the inside of your home that needs some TLC. Your exterior can be improved greatly by a professional painter and decorator. From providing the finishing touches to wooden window sills to complete rendering and painting for a smart finish.

We provide free quotes for all of our external painting work and can provide you with recent references to prove we are an established and trusted painter and decorator firm.
We can happily work with other tradespeople you may have – one of the most popular jobs we are given is to make good an external appearance after new windows or doors have been fitted.

Eco-Friendly and Organic paints, oils, waxes, and varnishes are products that only tend to contain natural raw materials. Solvent-free, they don’t cause the irritation or the serious health problems with which some older, more traditional materials have been associated. Naturally enough, the Organic and Eco-Friendly alternatives are also much kinder to the planet. One area in which compromise remains inevitable is in the occasional use of tiny amounts of a synthetic, lead- free drier, since there is currently no natural alternative available. This drier constitutes less than 0.3% of the total volume of the product and is only used where necessary in some wood finishes. Importantly, the Eco-Friendly group of products tend to be free of Volatile Organic Compound (VOC); a solvent particularly common in traditional paints and protective coatings. These products require solvents in order to enable the even spreading of a protective or decorative film. With approximately 12 billion litres of paints produced every year, there’s the potential for an awful lot of VOC in the environment. The term VOC refers to certain chemical compounds that have significant vapour pressures that can affect the environment and damage human health. VOCs are numerous, varied, and ever-present. Although they include both man-made and naturally-occurring chemical compounds, it is the anthropogenic VOCs that are regulated, especially for use indoors where concentrations can be highest. Typically, VOCs are not acutely toxic, but they do have chronic effects. If the health and environmental benefits weren’t persuasive enough, the use of natural elements actually enables the production of stronger, richer, more vivid colours and pigmentation than industrially – produced synthetic products. Most Eco-Friendly products can be identified by the presence of the EU’s Ecolabel. Please click on the following link to read more about the European Commision and the Ecolabel.
