Painting & Decorating

Cousins Ltd has a full range of painting & decorating skills to meet all requirements from high quality commercial decorating to fine detailing, and the hanging of bespoke wall coverings and fabrics. Our staff are experienced at all methods of applying paint finishes, including spraying, and more traditional methods such as scumbling, marbling and graining.

Cousins Ltd is an approved installer of all leading makes of paint, and the high quality of our work has been recognised by multiple awards from our national trade body the Painting & Decorating Association, and by Dulux where Cousins is the highest scoring partner on the Trade Contract Partnership.

Contracts extend in size from a few metres of specialist work to many thousands of square metres of commercial work.

Hygiene Coatings

Surface finishes in hygiene environments are critical to their effectiveness, whether in helping to control contamination or infection. Operating theatres, kitchens, research laboratories, food and drug production areas, residential care facilities are all places where enhanced levels of hygiene are essential to operational success. A key component in achieving this cleanliness is the design, quality and type of surface finishes on the walls, floor and ceiling.

Hygiene coatings of good quality and applied to the highest standards are a highly cost effective way of achieving the performance required, and Cousins Ltd staff and operatives are highly experienced in applying hygiene coatings of all types.

Specialist Finishes

Cousins staff are trained by the manufacturers of many specialist finishes such as high performance floor and balcony membranes, fire protection paints and coatings, steel protection, lacquers for high quality timber finishes, external wall coatings and many others. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
