Picture wins £100 prize for painter and decorator

A decorator has won a £100 fuel voucher after sharing a picture of a paint project on Facebook.

David Phillips, of D R Phillips Decorators based in Havant near Portsmouth, was voted the winner of Crown Paints Professional’s social media competition after sharing a photograph of a house he had painted.

The monthly contest invites painters and decorators across the UK to share images of projects they have completed using products from the Crown Trade, Sadolin or Sandtex Trade ranges.

Facebook users are invited to vote for a winner and the person behind the successful entry is presented with a £100 fuel voucher.

Mr Phillips used a flexible trim coatings system from Sandtex Trade at the home, which is split level with exterior cladding.

Lindsey Hall, Crown Trade Product Manager, said: “We were really impressed with Mr Phillips’ project.

“The pictures really showed the work he had done on the project to great effect – and it was fantastic to see the results as he had used products from our Sandtex Trade range.

“We know there are many talented painters and decorators out there and we want to help them share some of the amazing work they do.

“Social media is a great way to share images and we’re looking forward to offering many more tradesmen and women the chance to win with the monthly competition.”

D R Phillips Decorators offers a complete house-painting and decorating service in the Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey areas. Mr Phillips said: “I was really happy with the results at the house. I thought it looked great and I’m really pleased other people thought so too.

“Entering the competition was quick and easy and I was delighted to win such a great prize.”
