Interior Painting

There's nothing quite like a freshly painted room.

With crisp lines and pristine white ceilings, it's truly amazing how the transformational effect that a 'lick' of paint can be on any room.

The paints used are trade paints. Meaning that they cover better first time, are harder wearing and will retain their depth of colour and finish for far longer than off the shelf paints.

Phillip Coates painting services covers undercoat, sealing, priming, emulsion, gloss & satin.

Caulking & Filling

Bumps, lumps, dents, expansion cracks etc - they'll all need making good prior to application of paint or wallpaper.

Gaps around door frames, architrave or skirting can also be expertly filled to provide a good-as-new, much improved look to any room.

Only professional grade, trade caulk & fillers are used, something that will last for years to come.

Wallpaper Hanging

Wallpaper can create a whole new look for a home. It can be used to highlight a specific wall or feature, or to simply compliment or contrast with colours in your scheme.

Depending upon the condition of the wall surface, recommendation may be for lining paper in the first instance, to smooth out any imperfections.

Wallpaper samples could be provided, recommended & sourced on behalf the clients, or work with wallpaper provided as necessary.

Thanks Phill you really put my mum at ease. She doesn't like strangers in the house but she said you were lovely. I know she's not the easiest person to get along with but she was comfortable with you.

Mrs K

Grange Over Sands

Thanks for saving me thousands. We were going to buy a new kitchen but it looks so good (now it's been decorated), we aren't going to bother now.

Mr & Mrs Saddler


You weren't the cheapest quote we had, but I'm glad we chose you. I don't believe ANYONE could have done a better job.

Miss A

Bowness on Windermere

I'd recommend you to anyone, my living room looks like a showhome

Mr Mosley


You were right, it was (a patch of) damp but now you've treated it, it's gone and I'm looking forward to breathing easy again.

Mrs J


Lovely job, highly recommended

Mr MacDonald


Thanks for not being difficult when my wife changed her mind about the colour half way through, you were right, it's better to say then rather than regret it after. It could have been a drama but it wasn't.

Mr Howard
