Home For The Holidays

This time of year we normally start thinking of having a fresh start and thinking of New Year’s resolutions we want to achieve. I know every January, as cliché as it may sound I always start my health journey. Rather than write a blog this year about how to have a fresh start, I wanted to share with you some of the work our customers have done to keep themselves busy throughout 2020- the year we all stayed at home.

At the beginning of the first lockdown one customer asked us for a recommendation for a wooden base of their hot tub. The customer wanted a pastel green colour to match some ornaments in the garden. We were able to colour match these for the customer and provide a product suitable.

The product used for this decking is Rust-Oleum Combicolor in a satin finish. This product is available to be tinted in a variety of colours- This product is also more commonly known for use on metal and many people don’t realise it can also be used on many other substrates. This product is hard wearing and weather resistance which is why it is also good to be used externally. We love this pastel shade of green- this colour is RAL 6019. (Please note colours on a screen do not accurately represent the official colour.)

A door painted with Zinsser Allcoat

This door was painted during the Summer months with Zinsser Allcoat and the customer has since sent us a photo of the door looking Christmassy. I think this bold colour choice suits this beautiful Christmas wreath. Zinsser Allcoat is a popular choice for homeowners painting their front doors and garages because of its excellent colour retention. Allcoat also contains a biocide to protect the dried coating against fungal degradation. The colour of this front door is RAL 3003.

Stonegrey Fireplace

The photos above show the process of painting a fireplace, this customer asked us to make a stone grey colour. The customer primed the fireplace with Zinsser Bin before overcoating with the tinted combicolor. We recommended using Zinsser Bin to prime the surface first as Zinsser Bin has great adhesion to many different substrates. Zinsser Bin is also touch dry at 20 minutes and has great coverage. We absolutely love the look of this stunning fireplace. The gloss finish of the Combicolor really makes this a staple piece in the home.

We speak to many customers who have never painted before and want to try something new in their homes. If you need any advice when it comes to painting in your home please contact a member of our team on 01902 710057 or alternatively email info@andrewscoatings.co.uk and a member from the correct department will get back to you as soon as possible. Also be sure to take before and after photos of your work and tag us on instagram @andrewscoatings .

I've used Andrews Coatings quite a few times over the last few months and their service has always been first class. This is especially true when a manufacturer discontinued a paint - The customer service department went out of their way to obtain any available materials to allow me to complete my project. I can't recommend highly enough!

Have recently used Andrews Coatings for the first time and I cannot recommend them enough! With the current COVID crisis i was appreciative there may be a delay with my order but their excellent customer service team were very responsive to my queries and i received my order in good time! The technical knowledge of the team was very useful when deciding what paint to use. It goes to show that years of experience does result in better service!

I recently needed to order a special type of paint from Andrews Coatings to be delivered to Sweden. They responded quickly to my emails, were very helpful and despite all the Corona chaos the shipment arrived only a few days after I made the order. I rarely write reviews, but dealing with this company really was a pleasure.

I recently really wanted a particular type of paint to renovate my kitchen units that I had stripped during lockdown. the problem I have was the paint I wanted was sold in the uk and I am based in Spain. I contacted Andrews coatings and asked if they would consider posting abroad and didn't expect much to come of it. Then to my surprise they said they would but needed to check postage. They did this really quickly for me and I agreed to the sale. The six tins of paint arrived really well and packed perfectly in only a few days. such a quick and professional service and definitely a company that goes all-out to keep customers happy. I will have no problem in recommending them to anyone and I'll also use again if the need arises. 5stars from me!

Before I started to plan painting of my garage floor, I didn't anticipate it would be so technical. Youtube threw up so many options with product lists from the USA and Canada that aren't always readily available in the UK. Sometimes you wish you had someone helping who just knows the best answers to your obscure questions. The product knowledge shown by Mark Bullock was outstanding. He matched up the best products for the preparation of the floor and, when I decided after painting to add a clear coat, Mark once again advised the best products for me which I never would have found for myself; it's evident he doesn't just read it off a screen and his expertise saved me time, money and bother. Andrews Coatings also beat the price from at least two leading competitors. An assured Five Stars.
