Case Studies


WMS were shocked when recently tasked with fully refurbishing a fire damaged void property for a valued local Housing Association client.

WMS Contracts Manager Paul Harris said “the before images show the severity of the fire and the damage it caused in a very short period of time. Fortunately there were no casualties.  WMS have a specialist cleaning team who were mobilised on instruction and were quickly able to get the property in some form of shape before we started work. It was then over to my multi skilled voids team to pull out the stops over 4 weeks and fully refurbish the property with electrics, carpentry, plumbing, plastering and decoration completed as quickly as possible. We are fully aware that empty voids cost our clients money and once again completed the refurbishment ahead of programme, we are really proud of the results!" (see after images).

WMS have specialist voids refurbishment teams across all 4 of their offices in Cornwall, Devon and Somerset, feel free to contact us if you require our support! #voidrefurbishment #trustedcontractor

When faced with a faded, dirty, traffic film stained façade of this multi occupancy building located in a prominent inner ring road location in Newton Abbot - WMS Devon Painting identified the most appropriate solution for their valued client!

Calling on their trade knowledge (and the expertise of Dulux Trade Specification Manager) the through colour render was gently cleaned, treated and rinsed prior to application of mist and two coats of the most appropriate Dulux Trade Weathersfield Masonry system to specification. The colour was even mixed to match to the original façade shade!

Results achieved to date are stunning and WMS look forward to posting more images once the scaffolding has been struck!
