An Oxfordshire-based painter and decorator has won the Small Contractor Award at the Painting and Decorating Association’s Premier Trophy Awards, using a selection of Crown Trade products.
Crown Trade Grip Extreme Fast Drying Primer was used first on the bare walls to seal and bond distemper residue. Crown Trade Covermatt Emulsion was then chosen to coat the walls and ceilings.
In the living room, Neil and his team achieved a dramatic look using a rag-rolled finish – a layer of Crown Trade Covermatt Emulsion was applied on to the wall and rolled off quickly.
Finally, the fast-drying and virtually odour-free Crown Trade Acrylic Eggshell was applied to the woodwork.
Some external work also took place, with Crown Trade Protective Coatings High Build Rust Inhibiting Primer Undercoat applied twice to bare metal followed by Micaceous Iron Oxide and finished with Crown Trade Protective Coatings High Performance Gloss. In addition, railings were coated in the Crown Trade Protective Coatings System.
The front door and exterior windows were also coated in Sandtext Trade Flexible Primer Undercoat before being coloured and finished with Sandtex Trade Eggshell X-tra for the door, and Sandtex Trade Flexigloss X-tra for the windows.
Richard Gregory, who bought Milton Farm nearly three years ago, explained that the new living room fits in well with the character of the house.
Neil Bailey commented: “I was absolutely delighted, after seven years of trying, to come out with a top award. On the back of this award, I’ve been inundated with work and I hope to employ some more people.”
This year’s painting and Decorating Association’s Premier Trophy Awards will be held at Plaisterers Hall, London on Thursday, July 5th, 2018 and Crown Paints will be the main sponsor of the event which will be celebrating its 30th birthday.
