Property Decorating Website
It has been 10 years since the Property Decorating website has been live, it has seen many additions in that time, a gallery, four calculators for working out materials, videos and the very popular blog to mention just a few.
The basic design has remained largely the same throughout this time except a few tweaks here and there. We thought it was about time for a new look, things have changed so much over the past 10 years, not only in design of websites but the speed we access the web and also how we view the web.
With more and more people using devices such as smartphones, tablets etc. to view websites. And in fact looking at our stats we are getting around 50-60% of visitors now using these devices.
So to ensure our visitors can continue to view our site and gain access to our resources we are in the process of making a new design for the website and blog. The new design ensures all devices can view and use every page with no issues, and is following the trend for these ‘smart’ devices. So if you use a computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone everyone can enjoy a great experience of Property Decorating.
Sneak preview of the new website
Here is a screenshot of the new look Property Decorating, we are awaiting some new images and have some final tweaks to do but should be going live soon.
The new look design will also be applied to the blog (which launched in 2008) and will come online a few weeks after the new website goes live, so for now the existing design will be visible, but all the great content will still be available.

Painter and decorator based in Southend on Sea
Having lived and worked in the Southend area and working as a painter and decorator since 1993 I have over this time covered a variety of decorating and home improvement and handyman projects. Covering mainly residential work but not exclusively as I have done some commercial projects also. Some of the areas covered are Great Wakering, Barling, Southchurch, Rochford, Southend, Thorpe Bay and surrounding areas.
I find sticking to this area I can keep a good reputation and my name is seen and known around the area, I used to travel further afield but rarely do these days.
Having started my business before the internet became popular I have grown with the web and have websites, blogs, social media such as Twitter and Facebook as well as doing some videos on YouTube. I have also been asked to do reviews for several decorating items and paints. I have also created and coded myself some calculators to help you work out the quantity of materials required for your job. I can work these out for you on an onsite visit and source them if you require.
If you would like me to do your decorating, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 0845 0037 508 or use our online estimate form to arrange an onsite visit. I will visit your property and discuss your requirements, materials and answer any questions you may have, you can also be rest assured that I will be the person who will be doing your job, we do not sub-contract out work, this gives both parties an excellent working relationship. I do not give prices over the phone or without looking at the job, once I have seen and discussed with you your requirements, you will receive an estimate from me, either via email or post.

Dunlop Pro Decor
After I was recently asked by Dunlop to do a review of Dunlop Pro Decor Flexible Acrylic Filler on this blog the post has beem well received and I was contacted via my twitter account this month and asked if they could use a quote from my review on some of there marketing counter top displays.
I of course said yes, the filler is a great product and it does as it claims. I have been impressed with the results I get from it, and pleased to have my name and website on their point of sale display.
Look out for it in a store near you or at a trade day.
