It’s all in the preparation
To get the perfect exterior paint job, you need to prepare thoroughly first. At MG London, we never do ‘half a job’. So before we even open a tin of paint or break out the brushes, we prepare thoroughly.
Walls are checked for their integrity, and if we find any cracks that need further investigation then we’ll keep checking to make sure there’s no underlying problem before we start work. Superficial cracks are raked out properly and then filled to make sure they don’t resurface, spoiling the new look of your freshly decorated home or business. We use cement-based fillers for masonry work to ensure your repairs will last for years.
Windows and doors are prepared. If they’re wood then we’ll sand them down using different grades of sandpaper to get a silky-smooth finish and create the perfect base for the new paint. If your home has UPVC windows, doors and fascias then we can wipe these down and clean them thoroughly. This saves you time and money, as most UPVC windows, doors and exterior fixtures come up as good as new with a simple clean.
On damaged woodwork we use two-part filler that sets rock hard and are then sanded back to give you a flawless finish. If your doors or windows are swollen or warped then before we start painting we would need to quote for our team of carpenters to carry out any repairs. We’ll always consult you at every stage of the process, so it’s always your decision as to what gets done, and how much your external restoration will cost. Once you’re happy, we’ll use oil-based paints on woodwork to create a strong, weatherproof finish that will look beautiful for years to come.
Metalwork such as railings and gates is cleaned and treated for rust, and then we use robust Smoothrite or specialist metal paints to prevent flaking or cracking.
Access all areas
For most external paint projects we have to deploy extensive scaffolding. This also gives us a chance to check roofing and guttering while we’re working on upper floors, and let you know of any issues we find so they can be safely dealt with. All of our teams are trained and qualified to work at height in complete safety, and our scaffolding can be alarmed at an additional cost for your peace of mind so that your property is secure at all times.
