It is important when getting a quote for painting and decorating, be it painting a new build, painting a period house, painting an extension or existing family home, to know exactly what painting and decorating job you want for the money you are spending.
The quality of the paint used for painting ceilings, walls and woodwork
The experience of the painters doing the work
Whether the painters and decorators have insurance and references
The quality of the finish you want
Do you want a very high standard of finish? If so this will take more time and therefore cost more. If you don’t, then it will take less time and cost less but will arguably not look as good.
Conveying this information to your decorator will get you the best painting job to suit your needs, and may well get you the best painter for the job.
