We recently completed the refit of a commercial shop front in Pakenham in conjunction with local sign supplier Signarama Pakenham. Signarama referred this job to us as we belong to the same BNI Pakenham Achievers Chapter
Previously a discount store, the new tenants were a Cartridge World franchise. Signage had to be based on the registered colours registered with Dulux by Cartridge World

Whilst normally a job like this would be simple we had the challenge of textured bricks which made it harder to keep a clean straight line. As a result we did use masking tape to ensure a even straight line was in place with the paintwork on the adjoining business as well as the horizontal lines at the bottom
When you think of wallpaper, is it images like this that come to mind?
Wallpaper has come in and out of fashion and now with modern technology and printing processes, nearly any image you like can be turned into a fun, modern or classic finish you are looking for.. So whether you are after a bold or bright print or a subtle textured look, the huge variety of wall papers gives you a very individual and contemporary look that painting just can’t match. Beautiful Wallpaper can make such a statement and really transform a space.
No longer are we seeing just whole rooms being wallpapered with feature walls or even parts of walls as well as alcoves or recessed areas now becoming more commonplace for the application of wallpaper.
Using a professional Painter and Decorator will ensure that the wallpaper is hung correctly so it’s in line with the walls, the pattern matches up and you don’t have problems with peeling and blistering.

We often get customers asking us if they can reduce the costs of their painting by using a trade paint instead of the high quality paints that we prefer to use.
If you are prepared to pay for someone to paint your home, why then try to save a few dollars for an inferior quality paint.
All paints are measured on the following
Trade paints generally perform lower than high quality paints in all three areas.
Coverage tends to be uneven and if going from light to dark (or vice versa) often three coats are needed to fully cover the surface
These paints also tend to peel, flake and rub off more easily when being washed or scrubbed and are more prone to absorbing stains
In addition, trade paints are less durable with marks, scratches, knocks and bumps showing up a lot easier after minimal impact to the wall
Furthermore these paints have higher levels of VOC's releasing these toxic fumes into the air you breath long after the paint has been applied.
This is why we prefer to use high quality paints, while they may add on a few dollars to the cost of the work, you will find the surface looks better, is more durable to washing, scrubbing, stains and bumps as well as being kinder to the environment and the air you breathe.
