TeknosPro spruces up charity's home


TheHope Trust, a registered charity, recently employedPaul Sturman Professional Decorating Servicesto freshen up the interior of the premises at Maidstone Hall. The charity offers pastoral support and a sense of community to the elderly with a range of activities that can help improve their daily lives as well as giving them opportunities to meet new people.

Paul Sturman usedTeknosProto spruce up the interior of the multi-functional building. He usedFutura Aqua 80, a hardwearing top coat for a gloss finish, for the interior doors, skirting boards, dado rails and architraves. Paul commented, "The coating flowed well by brush and didn't need to be thinned down. It levels out really well and left an excellent finish. I saw an Instagram post earlier this year focusing on TeknosPro and, having then watched a review of the Futura Aqua portfolio online, it made me want to give it a go. The project at the Hope Trust was the perfect opportunity! I was thoroughly impressed with TeknosPro and will use the products on future projects."
