This was a job that had failed in less than 4 years. Their was organic growth under the coatings and incorrect fila's had been used causing the fail. We removed everything that had been done incorrectly and replaced with the correct products, thus giving longevity.
After all the prep was completed, We used resin - based stabiliser, primers. Then we applied resin - based finish coats. In the conditions water based paints would not have given longevity .
Front elevation. This property had problems with blown paintwork, fixed issues. Really Enjoyed this job. Great client, nice location, finished to a high standard.
All residents happy & customer happy.
Proud of this block as there had been small amount of settlement which caused cracking. But now restored..
Notice how white it is. Good quality paint makes all the difference.
We had a lot of problems with fungus & staining at this site. Correct procedures were followed and looks good. The slate porch on the right is not finished. The closer one is
All the houses at this address looked like the boundary wall -full of growth in substrate & lots of staining. All treated & removed correctly. Correct permeable stain blocking materials used before finish coating, Correct preperation is vital for longevity.
Wall and terrace one completed. Notice how white the buildings are. This is not a Dulux paint. The materials used are more costly, yet when used correctly are actually cheaper whilst also containing its own biocides with every coat & giving a better finish & are far more hard wearing.
Job complete with guarantee x3 days early
Grey & White - Lovely color Scheme - Simple - Homely
Trade vinyl emulsion on walls & Satinwood on woodwork
Traditional Paints Used - Satin Finish.
Every Decorator knows painting white on white is not as much fun as adding a little of the correct color to the doors to really make a difference.
5 bed New build - Enjoyed this project
Concrete blocks collapsed due to collision causing render break
Re built block wall, rendered & put on permeable paint on & put new led flashing along utility room
Job finished - Happy customer
This room had an ingress of water as a result of a faulty roof repair. All the wall paper & old lime plaster had to be removed and boarded with Fireline plasterboard ready for a skim coat.
After removing the perished lime plaster, We boarded the walls and skimmed the room. Then decorated everything. Happy client, which makes us happy too. Job done....!

Couldn't be happier!

David agreed to do a couple of 'far from easy' jobs for me without any hesitation. Carefully thought through, planned and finished to a very high standard. Professional repairs to save a complete replacement main doorway and paving slabs (a lot of them!) re-fixed and pointed. He kept me informed every step of the way and explained each stage.

An absolute pleasure to have around; friendly and knowledgeable, works quickly and will never leave anything until he is absolutely satisfied it is 100%.

I recommend David and his team to anyone who appreciates excellent service. I will definitely ask him back again.

1st class

This was the first time we have used PPD and was extremely satisfied with the outcome of what was a difficult job in a very difficult coastal location. The plastering and redecorating was 1st class. The customer service was excellent. Very polite and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. We hope our business relationship will continue and definitely will want to use them again.
