Christchurch new installation carried out in Cambridgeshire by Paul Ian Barber

Christchurch kitchens are unprimed. The first job is to apply the adhesion primer to all areas of bare wood. The reason we use the adhesion primer is not just for the adhesion it also acts as a stain block. Tulip wood which the framework is made from can sometimes stain through the finished paint film we call this tanning. We then rub down the complete kitchen fill and make good where required and apply an undercoat if required. Flat down to a smooth finish we then apply two top coats of furniture paint mixed in any colour of your choice. The final job is to apply a finishing oil to the internal parts of the cabinets including the drawer boxes and shelves as they are unsealed oak veneer, This can also be a good quality furniture lacquer.

A lot of thought has gone into ways of leaving clients with the minimum of disruption. For us the anwser is to remove the doors & drawer fronts and take them away to our workshop . With the frames fully exposed and accessible , We can apply the full “Prep and Paint treatment to everything left in stiu. We then leave the clients in peace to complete the bulk of the work in our workshop. keep everyone in the loop with process, and return to reinstall the kitchen , Finish any loose ends, Maybe fit new handles and leave the kitchen clean and ready for use.
