Project of the Month – November 2019

Trade Decorator Project of the Month November 2019 Winners - David Dean Decorating have just undertaken a full house redecoration on a private residence in Standish in Wigan. The house was extended & refurbished approximately 10 years ago so the clients wanted it renewing throughout. There was only one major problem that had to be addressed on the project and that was resin stains on the ceiling areas due to being clad in wood tongue & groove and this had previously been over coated with what appeared to be emulsion. After using around 18 tubes of caulk to fill expanded joints, Smith & Rodgers Blockade was chosen to resolve the issue. Being a pure shellac paint, this was perfect to seal the surface stains. It was then over coated with Tikkurila Intact 8 which gave an 8% sheen level, matt finish.

Project of the Month – September 2018

Bacons is an 18th century farm cottage near Maldon, Essex, named after its original owners. Over the years the cottage has seen various alterations and outbuildings added which consist of a conservatory, garage and office. A nearby brewhouse has also been converted into a dwelling to form part of the estate. Lewis Harrington, Managing Director of Harridec was approached by the client after viewing their website and were confident they were the company for the job after seeing evidence of similar projects that they have undertaken in the area. On inspection, it was evident that the timber elements of the building were in an extremely bad condition due to exposure to the elements and neglect over many years. Extensive repair work was undertaken to restore the oak windows. Firstly, they were stripped of failed clear varnish by mechanically sanding 40G, 80G, 120G and finally 240G. The water stains were removed with Owatrol Net-Trol wood cleaner and colour restorer, followed by 1 coat Sikkens Cetol HLS Plus and two coats Sikkens Cetol Filter 7 Plus in light oak.

Project of the Month – July 2018

Days of painstaking preparation work was required to renovate the house to bring it up to the standards of a modern home. Prior to redecoration, all the walls in the house were papered in an old Sanderson paper from the late 60's which had been overpainted on several occasions. One ceiling was also covered in the same Sanderson wallpaper, another with standard lining paper and the third was finished with polystyrene tiles. As the house was built in 1904 using traditional methods of construction, as expected, all internal walls were of "lath & plaster" construction with lime being used in the finish plaster as well as the coving.
