It´s not an apple or a pear nor is it a lemon.

It is however the name of the telephone supplier that contrived to lose 
The Villa Painters their home/office telephone number of some nine years standing, because of not supplying the correct procedural information regarding Telefonica and a house move.

In the first instance of course this caused confusion and inconvenience and necessitated that all existing clients and family and friends were contacted and informed of the new number and the reason for the change explained.
Secondly it was then realised that it was too late to change the number in the advert in the current edition of the Focus on Professional Services Magazine (sister publication of Female Focus)

So if you saw the ad in the FOPS Magazine and dialed the old home/office number and were put off by the phone being answered by the Spanish woman who now has the number (doesn´t paint houses apparently) please try again with the new number.

965 047 973

Or the existing mobile number 627 806 661 and email address info@thevillapainters.com

Lastly and as if to confirm the veracity of the old adage that bad things come in threes it came to mind that the recently purchased box of business cards was also now surplus to requirements.

Oh dear!

Anyone have a use for a box of house painters business cards with the wrong phone number?

Suggestion please to customer services manager of the telephone supply company that is not an apple or a pear…………..

Scrubbing the Decks

Everyone loves the luxurious look and texture of a wooden decking swim pool or patio surround it adds a touch of class to an area which can otherwise have an appearance which leaves a lot to be desired.

However many people are discouraged from installing these as they fear there will be a lot of maintenance involved and whereas it is undoubtedly true that wooden decking will require more care than for example ceramic tiles, if the maintenance is carried out on a regular schedule and not left for years until it presents a costly and time consuming problem there is no reason why the upkeep of decking should be any disincentive to its installation.



The trick to maintaining the appearance of wooden decking (as with other items such as wooden window frames and venetian windows and doors) is to establish a regular upkeep programe on a bi or tri yearly intervals and to employ a professional and experienced paint company such as The Villa Painters  to carry out a thorough renovation of firstly removing all old and flaking wood treatment and then applying two coats of a quality wood treatment such as Jotun Trebit.

The fortunate home owners can then enjoy their beautiful wooden decking and of course the admiring comments of friends and neighbours.
