Recently I completed a Lincrusta dado panels installation project in Cheshire, with my good friend and Dulux Select Grand winner Mark Rigby. “Thanks for the help Mark. We make a good team on the installation of Lincrusta”.
The owner of the property has a distinct passion for all things “Period”
Improving the the property further by re installing the period features that have been ripped out over the 150 years the property has existed.
Along with installing the Lincrusta, the customer had beautiful coving re instated and a lovely dado rail along with original cast radiators.
The installation of the wall covering went very well with the aid of straight edges and Olfa knives with black blades. The straight edges being used to trim off the selvedge. Basiclly the edges of the wall covering has a centimerter strip which help protect the wall covering in transit.
When installing the lincrsuta I like to get hold of the freshest paper I can.
The reason for this is that it aids in the installation. Lincrsuta is made of putty on the front and just like your window glazing beads in time putty turns a rock hard solid. This is what makes Lincrusta so appealing in that it lasts for ever with only the painting of the surface needed to maintain it.
With the two of us working together we soon had the project completed. Leaving the client with another addition to the period features that are slowly returning to this lovely victorian house.
I hope you find the blog post of interest and if you are in the cheshire area and have a decorating project in the pipeline then please get in contact, I would be more than happy to advise you in what is involved to achieve the end result.
