Just repaired and decorated a room in a large old house in Richmond. The place was in disrepair with a lot of cracks in ceilings/walls and a disturbing amount of paint peeling off the walls. The client absolutely insisted on using the dreaded Farrow&Ball paint. She was spending £100s on the paint, but tried to keep the decorating labour cost to a minimum. Despite being shown F&B's pitiful covering power and inability to cover undercoated and pva'd repairs, the client refused to pay for the time it would take to paint the extra coats needed to get a 100% flat finish, or to use a modern paint. I now understood that previous decorators must have cut corners [prep] because of pressure to finish within the budget allowed, resulting in the eventual peeling of the expensive aspirational topcoat. I threw extra time and effort at the job to show what could be achieved and the client loved the finish- just wouldn't pay for it. I took what money was offered and moved my gear out. I will be working elsewhere in future!
I built this site using a bOnline template and maintain/update it myself with help on the tech stuff from helpful bOnline webmasters. They sort out the mysteries of Search Engine Optimisation [SEO] in order to make the site more visible on the internet and I then 'update' with news and pics as much as possible to attract everyone's attention so that you get in contact and give me lots of lovely work!
I get approached by numerous web companies who would love to charge me a lot of money for doing this but I am determined to do as much as possible myself to keep costs [and my prices] down...
*So if you appreciate my work, then passing on the 'good word' to your friends and writing a nice review on my Google+ page or yell.com page would be greatly appreciated..every little bit helps!
