Project of the Month – December 2021

Trade Decorator have been speaking with Marc Doyle of DC Painting & Decorating as they recently completed the full redecoration of this fantastic three storey farmhouse in Whitworth, Rochdale. This stunning high-end property is situated directly next to a mill pond with huge open spaces and masses of natural light floods into the house, filling the space. Marc said, “This being the case it was essential that the correct products were used on the job and that it was finished to a very high standard. There were no real issues other than working with the large open plan spaces as flashing can occur, which is quite a common problem in areas like this and the clients wanted a flat durable matt finish. To eradicate the potential of flashing we decided the best product for the job would be Johnstone’s Perfect Matt, as it also met the client’s needs”.
