To help you calculate the amount of paint you will require for your project, please see our "Coverage Rates & Spread Rates" page. This Paint Coverage & Spread Rate Guide is to help estimate the quantity of paint required for a given area. Coverage is dependent on thickness of application and the porosity and condition of the surface being painted. More...

We recommend and welcome payment by BACS.
What is BACS?
BACS stands for 'Banker's Automated Clearing Services' and is a simple and cost effective way to make payments directly from your bank account to another bank account. It is the most popular way for suppliers and employees to be paid.
Why use BACS?
When sending a transaction through BACS, it avoids the need for paper documents as part of the money transfer process and is time efficient. It is one of the UK’s inter-bank funds transfer facilities and is effective, secure and widely accepted as the modern approach to funds transfers. It minimizes the need for writing and banking cheques, and the associated administration.
The advantages to you:
No more cheques to write or trips to the bank for cash. It aids your cash flow; you know exactly when the funds are leaving your account.
Please Note: Prices are subject to the addition of VAT at the prevailing rate.
Where a Special Delivery is required, all charges will be added.

Cancelling your order:

Our acceptance of your order will be subject to these Terms and Conditions, which are the only basis on which we do business.
If you choose not to accept delivery because you have cancelled your contract under the Distance Selling Regulations, we shall refund or re-credit you within 30 days for any sum that has been paid by you or debited from your credit card for the goods, less any expenses incurred by the failed delivery. You must inform us of cancellation (in writing, by fax or by email, but not by ‘phone) within 7 days of receipt of your goods (in the event they were despatched prior to cancellation).
Please take all reasonable care of the goods and return immediately. If you fail to return the goods, we will make a reasonable charge for the direct cost of their recovery plus a 20% administration charge.

SPECIAL MIXES & COLOUR MATCHING CHARGES
All special mixes and colour matching prices are quoted on an individual basis depending on quantity and complexity. Some special mixes and colour matches can take up to 7 working days plus shipping time from receipt of order and samples.
Increasingly there is a demand for individual or unusual colour matching by the consumer, as well as a requirement for the matching of corporate colours for large organisations. We also continue to see a need for matching paint colours with the surrounding environment. Most paint manufactures will only mix bespoke colours in large volumes. We are able to mix colours in quantities as small as 10.0 Litres in the majority of our coatings and finishes. We do however require a sample of the colour that you would like us to match. We will confirm our ability (or otherwise) to match the colour and sheen levels upon receipt. A standard charge of £30.00 + VAT is made for this service, in addition to the cost of the products. Please feel free to call us about these services.
Paint samples are sent to, or left at our premises at the owner’s risk.
NB: we are frequently asked to satisfy individual requests based either on cost or performance. Please feel free to call us to discuss your own or your customers' specific requirements.
