Commonly asked questions

Who supplies the Paint and Materials?

Decorative Edge will supply all paints and materials for the job, which will be included in the price of the quote, unless otherwise specified by the client.

When do I Pay?

All outstanding balances are payed on the day of completion of the job unless an arrangement has already been discussed.

Will we help with colour selection?

Decorative Edge are more than happy to help with colour selections but at the end of the day the final selection is up to the client.

Will my floors and furniture be protected?

The first thing Decorative Edge do before commencing any type of painting work is to make sure all floors are covered using drop sheets, all furniture is protected using plastic, and all blinds/curtains have been removed from the area.

How much will my household be disrupted?

We realise that painting a home which is being lived in can be a little intrusive so at Decorative Edge we do our best to keep this to a minimum by working in different sections of the house at a time instead of taking over the whole house and at the completion of each section we make sure it is as clean as possible by sweeping, vacuuming, and wiping down surfaces of the area in question.

What do you do to prepare for the painters?

When working in an occupied house Decorative Edge is happy to assist in moving heavy furniture and taking down blinds. However we do recommend that clients empty all shelves and cabinets and remove all ornaments prior to the painting of that area. Any cupboards which may require painting inside must be emptied prior to the time of its painting and all frames with pictures and mirrors should be taken off the walls by the client.
