We have a huge variety of coatings to suit any substrate. Primers, undercoats and topcoats

In matt, soft sheen, silk, eggshell and gloss.

We can tint all of these to approximately 16,000 shades.

We keep in house plenty of different types of base ready to tint to your chosen shade.

So any color in any finish. If you have a colour in mind, or cannot find it on a chart, we have

a colour scanner which enables us to scan and match anything. We have previously scanned

A flannel, a curtain and a rugby shirt, just to name a few.

So, whatever you want to paint, spruce up or just fancy a change, we can accommodate you.

Primer

Using a primer is not always necessary, but when used it creates a better bonding for the subsequent top coats.

We stock all the usual primers but we also have some that are especially for ‘problem’ or

difficult to paint areas.  For example kitchen cupboard door or bathroom tiles etc.  We stock a variety of specialist primers to ensure that you are able to paint any surface you chose.

Emulsion

We keep in house plenty of different types of base ready to tint to your chosen shade.

So any color in any finish.  If you have a colour in mind, or cannot find it on a chart, we have

Trim

Woodwork/skirtings and architraves and windows.  We have oil and water based products for these areas.  The water based products are quick drying and of course very low odour, which may be very beneficial when painting indoors.

We would recommend that customers have a tester pot first of any mixed shades.  This is so that they can check the LRV (light reflective value) of the colour inside their chosen room.  Sometimes a colour can look very different depending on its surroundings.

Specials

For that something extra special we also stock glitter additive and a pearlescent varnish.

For walls etc
