Goodby to 2020. wow what a year that was. 2021 looks to be an exciting yet a little scary year ahead. We have a lot to be thankful for , new medical treatments thanks to our very clever scientists, and a big thank you to the health professionals, who have been so brave and strong though this pandemic.
2021 brings new roads to travel as a country as well it seems. So hoping those roads lead to economic prosperity, and continued freedom for every citizen of the UK. continued unity within our Isles and a bright future.
Wishing all our old and new customers a happy, kind, healthy, and prosperous 2021.

Had some good news from a customers recently, They were selling their home, and it had been on the market for some months, the estate agent had recommended not spending any money on improving the property, and to just put on the market as it was, as he felt the cost would not justify the increase on value.
The owners asked for my advice, after they had only been receiving offers £10 below the market value, my advice was the house interior decoration was quite dated, and the walls were in need of spot repairs. It would benefit from repairing plaster where needed and decorate with an updated contemporary, neutral colour scheme.
They agreed and after 10 days work on repairs, decorating and new carpets fitted throughout. They received three new viewings and it sold to the first viewer, with an increase offer of £10.000 a NET increase of £8,000
So happy for the owners, they received market value. and had the confidence to invest in their property, that paid off.
Costomer treated me to a nice dinner today. Lucky me.
Walls had been drawn on previously and needed sealing, then painted white matt, with a washable, easy care paint, with a feature wall painted with a touch of gold glitter,
This room had a fitted wardrobe, that had been removed. Leaving a recess of 10 mm plaster.
We plastered the recess area to leave a level surface, re-boarded the ceiling recess and plastered. Then painted the room in white mat emulsion. To leave a smooth finish. Re-routed the old heating pipework to run under the floor boards. Fitted new skirting board. You would never know there had been a wardrobe fitted. Before and after pics below.
Decking and Jacuzzi room painted, Burnley. In contemporary duo, grey and slate colours.
