Specialist Techniques


Thorpe & Co are experts in this popular technique for painting large surface walls.  Spraying can be applied internally or externally to a wide range of materials, including:

  • Block work
  • Masonry
  • Cladding
  • Plaster

We use 'Steel-seal' or 'Cladsure' branded paints, which come with 10-year guarantees.  We also have the skills to carry our any patching that may be necessary to ensure a perfect finish.  We recommend this technique for large areas and industrial use as it is quick to apply and gives and even and hard-wearing finish.

Wet & Dry Finish

This specialised, premium painting service gives an ultra-smooth sheen effect to internal woodwork.  Applied in many layers it uses deep-shine gloss paint for a highly superior finish whether in the office or the home.

Taping or Joining

This professional method of joining a plasterboard wall to an existing one will give a seamless finish to any newly created room.  Thorpe & co can provide this service alone or as part of a full decorating package and can also, if required, create a new wall.

Wide Vinyl

For a smooth, luxurious finish to any reception or office area, Thorpe & Co can offer you their specialised wide vinyl fitting.  This large-sheet wallpaper, available in a broad range of colours and patterns, will give you uninterrupted cover to your walls for a high-impact look in visually important areas.

Powder Coating

If your window frames or doors are flaking or tired.  Thorpe & co can renew them with powder coating, a spray-on paint specially designed for external metalwork.  Though, solid and durable, powder coating is available in many colours and will transform your frontages for many years to come.

Marbling and Graining

Thorpe & co have several experts in these artistic techniques which will enliven and update interior walls and features.  Graining is a hand-finished method of creating a very realistic wood effect on a variety of different surfaces.  It can be toned to match existing wood and is an ideal way to bring a striking and modern look to doors, skirting boards, staircases and panelling.  Similarly, marbling creates an impressive effect which is very attractive on fireplaces, pillars and feature walls.
