Since the early 80′s I have worked on myriad projects, but favour the special demands of period properties and prestigious private homes, where I come into my own, incorporating specialist traditional techniques with cutting edge efficiency-saving tools and equipment.
As part of my ongoing commitment to offer the best service possible, I have consistently attended courses to improve and showcase my craft skills. I am an approved Lincrusta installer & restorer, a Muraspec specialist, registered Repair Care User, a Dulux approved Select Decorator, a fine finishing / repair specialist, and recently became part of a UK network of specialist kitchen painters. I have also attended Conservation and water gilding courses at the Crick Smith University of Lincoln, and am working towards a Heritage NVQ.
Russ is very conscious in providing a healthy environment during his work, not only for himself but also for clients. By using the Mirka Net Abrasives and Sanding Systems, he is able to offer an almost dust free sanding service and achieve some outstanding results!
It should be no surprise that with Russ at the helm, Prime Decoration attracts many repeat customers and referrals from satisfied clients in Nottingham, Derby and throughout the UK.
