My name is Dan Ennis and I have been a painter and decorator for nearly 20 years working in all aspects of the trade. I have a wide range of clients including hotels, shops, residential customers, global companies, builders and property developers.
The decorating trade has changed significantly in the last few years with the introduction of new paints, tools and materials. I invest a large amount of time in making sure I am at the forefront of these changes ensuring that my clients benefit from the most suitable materials and tools for their particular needs. Below are some examples.
Dust free sanding – I use dust free sanding systems wherever possible to minimise dust in the clients property. As well as keeping the mess down to a very low level, this system has great benefits for everybody’s health.
Repair Care Resin Repairs – I am a certified Repair Care contractor which enables me to carry out resin repairs to rotten timber and other substrates. This system is guaranteed for 10 years and can have significant cost savings over replacement timber.
VOC free paints – If you are an asthma sufferer or just dislike the smell of paint, I am happy to use paints that contain no volatile organic compounds, being virtually odour free and much better for your health and the environment. My two preferred brands are Mythic paints and Earthborn Paints.
