Cork Home Maintenance

Painting and decorating

I am an experienced painter and offer a wide range of interior painting servicies. I bring my own brushes and covers and I can advise on the best kind of paint for the job.

I work in the Cork and West Cork area, including Ballincollig, Bandon, Cork city, Macroom, Carrigaline, Clonakilty, Ballinenn/Enniskean, Dunmanway, Innishannon, Ovens and more. Contact me on 087-7767553 for more information.

Interior Painting

I paint single rooms to the entire houses, as well as fittings such as doors and skirtings. I also check walls for cracks or plaster damage and fill and repair those before starting painting. This way the customer gets a finish free of holes or cracks caused by underlying plaster problems. I also apply antifungal paint in bathrooms and en-suites where air moisture may be an issue. I also remove any mold, mildew or water stains that can appear in damp rooms.

Exterior Painting

I paint houses and sheds. I can check outdoor walls for plaster damage and or mold/mildew before painting. To get the best finish I can powerwash the wall, fill any holes or gaps and apply a funguscide if necessary.

Painting rented houses

I repair any plaster damage, mold, water-stains etc in the house. I can paint the entire house or just single rooms. I offer very compeditive rates for large amounts of work.


I use a high powered powerwasher to remove stains, dirt, and mossy growth on the exterior of houses, paths or garden walls. I also apply funguscide where necessary.

Wood painting, garden sheds

I apply preservative coatings to garden sheds. I also refelt shed roofs and repair minor damage.

Gates and railings

I clean down and paint gates and railings and treat them with Triflow or Hammerite.

Sanding and varnishing

Doors and skirtings sanded and varnished to give a good finish. I also apply light sanding and revarnishing to timber floors.
