Blog

Welcome to the Simmonds Decorating technical advice blog. For those of you who are looking to undertake painting and decorating themselves at home, here I provide answers to common questions. I also provide help to solve common problems and advice about the best types of product or paint to use different situations.


Note; The articles are my personal opinions based on my experience of working as a painter and decorator in Bath over the last 20 years. There are no third party links or paid for links of any sort.

Before undertaking any painting and decorating work yourself, take a look at the following links to familiarise yourself with the health and safety guidelines of The Construction Industry Training Board and The Heath and Safety Executive.
