Project of the Month – October 2020

Bolton Hall is a Grade II listed building, situated in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire and has been the family seat of the Orde-Powlett family since 1678. The house was re-built in 1902, after the original hall was destroyed by fire. Redecorating historic buildings of this nature, takes careful consideration of the original construction materials and it is essential that work is carried out sensitively with the original features of the building. Lambert’s Decorators were recently called in to re-decorate the old billiard room, that is now going to be used as a drawing room. 


For professional painters and decorators, providing customers with a long-lasting, premium finish is a crucial part of the job. However, when it comes to interior trim surfaces, paintwork is at risk of wear and tear from stains, scratches and hand contact, which can leave behind marks and blemishes. This is a common issue; however, it means that redecoration often needs to be carried out sooner than customers would like.  To tackle this issue, Johnstone’s Trade has carried out extensive research, development and testing to formulate a paint that can help professional painters and decorators provide a quality finish that will stand the test of time. Placing the needs and reputations of professionals at the forefront of innovations, we launched Johnstone’s Trade Aqua Guard – a new water based satin paint with enhanced durability, suitable for interior wood and metal.


Johnstone’s Trade today launches Aqua Guard - a new, durable water based satin paint that has been specifically designed to defend interior wood and metal surfaces against scratches, wear and tear and greasy finger marks. Interior wood and metal surfaces are often vulnerable to stains, scratches and grease in areas where the paint surface has softened. However, with innovative Surface Protection technology, Johnstone’s Trade Aqua Guard creates a defensive barrier to ensure a long-lasting and premium finish.
