A Price Guide and Information Sheet on Painting Banisters/Spindles

It’s a fiddly old job, especially with “turned” (ornamental) ballusters! If it’s done properly, there’s some very awkward sanding down to do and then all that dust has to be vacuumed up. Then there’s all those edges and corners where “runs” are just waiting to happen! Do yourself a favour….get a bloke in to do it.

(Blisters and “the runs”…..sounds like when I did the Delhi marathon)!
