WMS Painting Division goes from strength to strength and the recent external decoration of this multi occupancy building is testament to their abilities!

Working closely with their local scaffolding sub-contractors WMS phased their works so as to keep disruption to a minimum.

WMS have painting Divisions operating out of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset and results like these are contributing to the steady growth of the painting business across all 3 counties!

WMS Devon Painting Team have recently completed the external decoration of this lovely scheme - much to the delight of the local residents!

External decorations are never ideal at this time of year but due to painting being delayed by the pandemic a further delay was not possible.

Upon instruction WMS sought the advice of the local coatings manufacturer for the most appropriate system and specification and following a joint site visit agreed next steps!

Whilst keeping one eye on the weather forecast WMS planned all works accordingly applying all coatings in line with recommendations.

Keeping the residents in the loop was key to the success of this project and is testament to the team on site,  the feedback upon completion has been excellent!

Team work = dream work at WMS!
