When we were looking to repair and paint the exterior of our Grade II listed cottage in Cowes, we knew we needed to have experts in charge of the project. The cottage is in a very exposed location, frequently receiving the brunt of coastal weather and traffic fumes. The exterior paintwork had started to crack and peel, so it wasn’t going to be simply a case of applying a fresh coat of paint. RPL’s project manager came to visit the site and discussed with us all our options for redecorating, before we decided on a course of action that met our budget and needs. Their chief decorator helped us choose a durable and reliable exterior paint (we opted for Little Greene, which they had used when painting English Heritage’s Osborne House in East Cowes). Once we had decided on the paint colours that matched the existing Grade II tiles, RPL then handled everything very efficiently – from arranging the scaffolding permit from the Council, to ordering all the paint we would need to complete the job. Their team of decorators thoroughly cleaned the existing exterior, brushing away old paintwork and filling any parts which had peeled away. Window frames and the front door were sanded down, and over the next few days, our cottage was completely transformed. The friendly team of painters were very capable, polite and self-sufficient, and we were absolutely delighted with the finished result. What had started to look run-down and unloved now gleamed smartly, and was well protected to cope with whatever weather the winter months brought.
As I admire the just-decorated state of our house, I thought I must let you know what a wonderful job RPL have done in restoring us to our 2001 ‘look’. It was a pleasure to have your workmen here and to take advantage of their expertise.
