Frequently Asked Questions

how do you price your decorative work?
Per metre-squared; every painting project is custom-designed to fit taste and budget; pricing is determined by size and detail eg: one project could be 200 a metre while a more complicated one could be 400; cost of materials is separate to price of painting work and is to be paid up-front or you can provide suitable materials if you have them.
what is the process start to finish?
Initial contact via email or phone; rdv to see and measure space to be painted and discuss more fully what you’d like to have done and what your budget is; clarify work start and finish dates; clarify price of work and materials; deposit - material costs; once deposit is paid work begins, with a primary sketch if required, on the arranged date.
how would you like to be paid?
material costs in cash. Depending on size and duration of work: one third mid-way in cash; and final amount in cash on day of completion or within one working week.
