Proud Decorators: Touchstone Lofts

April 6th, 2020

Long-standing Brewers customer Paul Johal at Touchstone Lofts shares one of his recent projects with us as part of the Brewers #ProudDecorator series.  

Paul and his team of reliable and passionate tradesmen boast a wealth of experience in conversion projects with a passion for low ridge height conversion. One of their recent projects was to convert an old school building (with one floor) into a two storey, four-bedroom dwelling in Oxford.

The main challenge encountered by Touchstone Lofts on this project was working with the restrictive head and floor heights throughout the building, which was originally built in 1860. The main impact of the maximum height was in finding the right insulation products to minimise headroom loss. The age of the building was also an important factor. The team knew to be vigilant in case of any delicate plaster - thorough preparation was key to tackling this as well as ensuring minimal dust damage.

Paul Johal at Touchstone Lofts adds “Brewers supplied undercoat, primers, Osmo and ceiling whites. The main colour used throughout most of the building is Antique White with a few colours picked out to warm up some of the rooms to enhance the design. The colours we wanted were not available ready-mixed but it was no problem for Brewers as they just mixed the specific colours we wanted for us which was a godsend. We were delighted with the final outcome”.

Paul and his team have been loyal Brewers customers and account holders for many years. Paul adds “Brewers never fail to deliver. We have on occasion had to order materials at very short notice (once, I believe in the same day!). Knowing I can rely on the paint being delivered direct to my site at the required time is so reassuring in this business - it helps enable us to complete our projects to schedule without compromising on quality”.
