I have been in the painting business for over 30 years now and have built up a vast knowledge of the trade in that time, both here in Kelowna and in England. I enjoy my work and always look at each job individually building up a friendship and trust between me and the client. Properties I have worked on over the years vary enormously from a one bed apartment to an English country mansion. Whether you are looking to have interior or exterior work carried out I would be only to happy to provide you with a free written Estimate.
After leaving school I was fortunate to be offered an apprenticeship in Painting which involved spending three years at college learning all aspects of the trade. We covered everything from preparation of surfaces through to the application of various water and oil based paints, acrylics and latexes. These were all applied using various methods e.g. spray painting, roller work and brush. Wall paper hanging was a big part of our training again learning to prepare the walls properly prior to hanging the paper and installing every conceivable paper there was including grass cloth and hand printed paper. In all the apprenticeship has given me a solid background in my trade and enabled me to run my own successful business both here in Kelowna and also back in England. The business is fully Licensed and Insured and offer free written estimates.

We offer the following services
All types of Paint Finishes applied including acrylics, eggshells, latex, waterborne enamel, and oil based paints to both interior and exterior surfaces.
Staining – I have applied many different stains over the years both oil based and water based to a number of areas inside and outside of the home. These stains vary from windows, doors, base boards and casements, staircase spindles and hand rails, decks, wooden beams, fencing right through to whole garage exteriors in some cases.
Varnishing – A product which is used over the top of stained timber mainly on interior work, it can also be applied straight onto new wooden surfaces, in which case it pays to build up several coats to produce a long lasting durable finish. Again varnish can be used in many areas of the house to enhance the natural look of wood.
Wall Coverings – All types of wallpaper whatever the pattern or finish, I have hung many different papers over the years and they really do give your home a personal look. Also there are some papers that have a raised or embossed surface which are plain white, these papers are then painted over once hung.
Wide Vinyls – A very durable product used mainly in offices, restaurants, hotels and banking institutions, it comes in a variety of grades depending on where it is being used. The vinyl itself is usually 52-54 inches wide and covers large areas in a relatively short time.
