5 Key considerations for upcoming decoration works

5 Key considerations for your upcoming decoration works

In these uncertain times, ABK are doing everything in their power to continue to deliver the high quality service you have come to know and rely upon.


Here are our top 5 considerations for you – if you are planning a painting and decorating project in the near future.


Please ask yourselves;


1. Are you or loved ones vulnerable to Covid 19?

ABK is no stranger to cleanliness and conscientiousness but in line with government recommendations, for your safety, in the quoting and/or works phase, we would not feel comfortable having close contact with;

  • Those aged 70 or older (regardless of medical conditions)
  • Those who are/may be pregnant
  • Those with any other underlying health issue


If this does affect you or someone close to you that you may have regular contact with, we can offer the following assurances;



Healthy Craftsmen

We will certainly not be visiting your property with any obvious symptoms of corona virus such as a new continuous cough and/or high temperature/loss of taste and smell.



Quick Quotes & Easy Communication

We have developed an effective method of quoting by reviewing images and videos sent to us by email, WhatsApp on 07919 887211 and social media direct message etc.
All workers are available to liaise with direct on their personal phones and the office numbers are open through normal business hours – 01494 465566.



Smart Planning & Safe Distances

Leave your key out so we don’t have to bother you at the front door. We’ll be handling everything with gloves too for your extra peace of mind.



Uncompromising Execution

We pride ourselves on a professional service whether for an organisation or a homeowner so you can expect rigorous quality control and 100% satisfaction.


2. Are you seizing a timing opportunity?



Responsible for the upkeep of an educational establishment?

You’d usually book your project in for the Summer holidays when the kids are on a break… Now is the time to strike!

The government has only partially opened schools and the vast majority of people are still working from home right now so lets utilise this opportunity to make hay while the sun shines.



In charge of an office or factory?

The summer also presents an opportunity for works to be taken while people are taking holidays, thus minimising impact… Now is the time to strike!

Those of you that are working from home can now use this as an opportunity to oversee and instruct our teams easily ‘onsite’.



A homeowner looking to freshen things up?

As the days are longer, you’ll start to notice all the little patches that need sprucing up inside and outside and so, inevitably, book projects in for July/August/September…  Now is the time to strike!

Just inside work, think about booking in projects from October…  Now is the time to strike! 

Not only that but you are much more likely to avoid availability issues and potentially higher prices in the Summer holiday period.


3. Are you choosing the right paint?

What’s the latest with brands, colours and properties…



ABK are big fans of Farrow & Ball and a lot of clients this year have been opting for Purbeck Stone or Ammonite which we love equally.


Scrubbable Paint

We’re also regularly working in busy places such as colleges and train stations where there has been an increasing desire for durability of the paint in high traffic areas.

In these circumstances, we’re quick to recommend Johnstone’s Cleanable Matt with its Easy Clean Technology which we can certainly vouch for! The most common household stains are easy to remove with lukewarm water, a soft cloth and washing up liquid.



Antibacterial Paint

At this stage we feel it’s also worth highlighting an Anti-bacterial range that has been formulated to assist in the fight against hospital acquired infections and the proliferation of ‘superbugs’ like MRSA and E. coli.

This Antibacterial Microbarr range does what it does using proven silver ion technology that protects against over 150 strains of bacteria whilst providing a tough, washable surface!

5. Are you maximising your investment?

The likelihood is that you’re enquiring about a painting project. Not all of our clients know, but we’re more than just painters!



This means that instead of just immaculately finished walls and ceilings, we take care of all of your property development – which means your finish is even better because we ensure our craftsmen end up with the best surfaces to work from whatever degree of construction went on beforehand.


Our surveyors are trained to pick up on details that you may see as insignificant which can hugely impact the cost and timescales of jobs. This makes your life easier which means you ultimately save time and money.


Not only that but how much do you value your time?

Assuming you have a hundred other important things to do… We try hard to alleviate the stresses and strains often associated with welcoming trades people into your establishment.
