The Island

This iconic little building, close to Wilmslow’s main shopping street,covers 2 floors of offices and retail space. We were commissioned to repaint and repair the exterior of the building and bring it’s condition back up to a presentable standard.

The job took us 10 days over the course of a couple of weeks. We had 4 of our professional decorators working on site during this time as there was a lot of repair to the brick exterior that needed to be addressed prior to the other elements of preparation.

We repainted the exterior brickwork with two coats of Johnstones Smooth Masonry. This required our team working at heights where the guys used the latest safety equipment in a powered boom lift.

The team also had to repair a lot of the timber exterior on the ground level with the two shopfronts. We then repainted these two spaces with an undercoat and gloss.

We recommended to the owners of the building to choose an accent colour to emphasis the darker exterior. The result was the vivid display of all window sills and another dimension to the building commonly known as ‘The Island’.

Very happy with this job, we think the building really has a sense of identity now.
