Painting & Cyclical Decorations
Ian Williams is one of the largest privately-owned painting contractors in the UK, delivering a variety of coatings solutions for over 70 years. In this time, we have won over 40 National Painting and Decorating Association Awards for the quality of our projects in a variety of sectors.
We’ve remained at the forefront of the sector through a commitment to implementing the latest innovations in products and applications, underpinned by partnership agreements with the UK’s leading paint manufacturers including AkzoNobel, Crown Paints and PPG.
The world of paint and coatings is fast moving and dynamic and our highly skilled, directly employed workforce of painters and decorators undertake top level training and development.
Often, we will co-ordinate decorations with other internal and external works with integration into our other services, for works such as roof repairs, window replacement, external rendering, plasterwork and other internal building modifications. We also engage on industrial projects where structures require robust health & safety as well as quality management systems.
