We all fancy ourselves as being DIY ‘experts’ especially when it comes to painting and decorating, but let’s be honest, what we try our hand at, is never as good as what the professionals produce.
Painting is more than just a trade it is a skill, an art form even. The first impression when someone walks into a building or sees a structure is determined by the paint work and this leaves a lasting impression on them.
Without doubt the best form of advertising in the painting industry is word of mouth and seeing the work that is done. So offering a reliable and professional service certainly helps build a company’s reputation.
That is why the subject of this month’s article for Building Ireland is reputable painting contractors Bahaa Marks Ltd. Based in the JFK Industrial Estate, Bluebell, Dublin 12 , the company has been in business for the past 17 years and in 2008 became a limited company.
Director Bahaa Eldeeb explained to us what they do to ensure customer satisfaction, indeed their client list explains the high esteem they are regarded within the industry.
“Despite our continued growth and expansion into new market sectors, our commitment to quality and customer service remains as strong as ever. We built an enviable reputation as a firm that has the resources to competitively deal with large contracts but at the same time, our customers can be confident that they are dealing with a family run business that genuinely cares about its reputation and takes pride in every job, big or small,” stated Bahaa.
In such a competitive industry, it is essential to provide the highest standard possible, while being price competitive also.
“Reliability, cost and quality is hard to find as a combination, yet we believe it is fundamental to any project. Building up customer relations has been our number one priority since we began and we believe the personal approach enables us to do this from the start of any potential project.
“We are a company you can trust to be honest and provide you with all the details of the job, with somebody always at the end of the phone to answer any questions you may have.”

“Over the years, we have carried out residential properties, numerous industrial and commercial painting contracts for health authorities, Dublin City Council, Office of Public Works, Banks, Universities, Schools, Libraries, contractors and private corporations, delivering professional commercial painting contracts on a competitive value for money basis.”
From arriving and designing the client’s idea, to fully carrying out every aspect of the job, Bahaa Marks highly trained painting crews will paint any surface, using spray gun, brush or roller in Residential, Commercial and Industrial, interior or exterior projects and they pay special attention to all detail. No painting job is too complicated or to simple for them to handle.
Of course, none of the success achieved over the years would have happened were it not for a reliable, dedicated and skilled work force.
“There are 26 employed here, while we would also use sub-contractors when necessary. We recognise that good people make a good business and there are none more important than our front line painters and decorators. Every member of our team is trustworthy, well presented, and professional.
“The majority of our staff have been employed by the company for many years. We are committed to employing only the most dependable individuals who you can trust to work within your business.”

“We use only the highest quality paints and primers. We have achieved an outstanding reputation for quality and our ability to complete painting projects on time over a whole range of painting services on a competitive value for money basis. We are fully insured a C2 registered certification on request, while a free consultation/design estimation service is provided.
“Work is carried out during hours to suit the customer’s project (weekends and nights).”
The company has all the equipment necessary to access those hard to reach areas, while they go to great lengths to ensure that proper surface preparation is carried out.
“Proper surface preparation is critical to the success and longevity of our projects. Surfaces are first analysed and then processed using the most appropriate methods including: hot/cold power washing, steam cleaning, sandblasting, abrasion, chemical treatments. Surrounding surfaces are protected and masked off as needed, and our jobs sites left clean and organised.”
Bahaa revealed that that he is pleased with the direction that the business is heading as they have a number of contracts ongoing at the moment.
“We’re currently working on projects in the 3Arena, a nursing home in Tallaght, another job in Dorset Street, Dublin and a school in Athlone, Co Westmeath, while we have tendered for numerous other projects and are hopeful that we will get some of them.
“We have the ability to complete work on time and on budget, which has earned us a good reputation. Our painters are courteous, prompt, friendly and clean.”
