Arterbury Road, Wimbledon, SW20
A beautiful contemporary home. We carried out the redecoration to the entire property. The interior design colour specification was prepared by The Paint and Paper Library. The paints were matt emulsion, and oil based flat matt for the areas that required a tougher finish.
The tops of the skirting boards were originally finished with a cream coloured silicone bead, which our client asked us to remove and replace with a paintable flexible caulk. Most of the skirting boards in the property are finished in a clear varnish, so they had to be protected during the painting process. Our client discussed with us that some areas of the plaster had hairline cracks that reappeared after a standard fill and repaint. We were able to advise on a solution to this problem, and carried this out during the preparation process.
We returned the following year to carry out the redecoration to the external of the property.For the timber windows we removed all the fittings (vents and catches) prior to preparation. We used the Sikkens Filter 7 woodstain system for the redecoration. Sikkens woodstain produces a real high quality and long lasting finish.
The property has a large seating area above the lower ground floor room, which has been decked with hardwood planks fixed into aluminium frames. Our client pressure washed this decking. We removed the frames for thorough cleaning and then sanded the decking and applied 2 coats of Sikkens HLS woodstain.During the decoration we cleaned out all the gutters to the property and cut back over hanging trees.
We have since carried out the internal and external decoration to their neighbours property.

"Over the past 10 years we have developed a very successful relationship with “Hamilton’s” who have undertaken painting and decorating jobs; from minor repairs to more major restoration work at our Chelsea home. In our view the key to long lasting work is thorough preparation and attention to the small details, doing a job to last and this has always been expertly done by Hamilton’s. I continue to recommend Hamilton’s to friends and colleagues".Peter Fenichel
