Substantial repairs to wooden Art Deco windows in Huntington
Set in the beautiful area of Huntington, Cambridgeshire, this Art Deco home features a brick and wood cladding exterior with the classic curved bay windows and small window panes of the era. This means that each large window has many frames – all of which needed our special window repairs attention.
Completed in April 2016, the project involved the wood of the window frames being sanded back to bare wood and then repairs were carried out using resinour filler and Accoya/Tricoya wood. The result was a smooth surface on to which we were able to use our spray painting technique to achieve a glossy and smooth finish that is almost impossible when hand painting. We also turned our attention to the exterior cladding sections. These needed the metal nails to be treated to prevent the paint being stained, before they too, were spray painted with our specialist paints.
Despite the extensive nature of this work, we were about to complete it within one week, giving the owners their new and stylish home back and ready for use. The character of the Art Deco look has not been lost and the windows will last for many more years.

We have used Matt and his team on a number of occasions.
The standard of work is excellent and offers value for money.
He has a superb eye for detail and does not settle for second best.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Don't use gloss use Matt!
Excellent communication, service and professionalism. We spoke with Chameleon to restore some rotting wood french doors and wooden windows, as well as redecorate. Email discussions with Victoria to arrange the initial quote were answered quickly and in a friendly way. Alex and his team of decorators were excellent - they took 2 and a half days instead of 5, and worked extremely hard, leaving the windows and doors looking great. We'd use them again without hesitation and would thoroughly recommend them.
Alex and his team are superb. We have used them before, and always been impressed - as we were this time - by their work ethic, their expertise and knowledge, the quality of their work, and their efficiency. I recommend them very highly indeed.
We were incredibly impressed with Chameleon Decorators' workforce. They were punctual, worked extremely hard and were very polite and considerate. The project itself turned our tired, and frankly very dilapidated, windows into something once again in keeping with our 17th century cottage. We are delighted with the entire process and intend to use Chameleon again in the very near future.
Chameleon were so efficient - the job was completed within a week of our first contact. They worked so carefully, with great attention to detail and no mess. Communication was also good. We were very pleased with the internal (bathroom) and external (doors) work. I will recommend them to my friends.
