    "Some painters and decorators are more than capable, but they may not have the machines and tools required for this discipline
    As a carpenter, panelling is a relatively straightforward job and using MDF will reduce material cost, instead of using real timber.

    "The correct tradesmen to use for installing MDF panelling is a joiner as they have the measuring and cutting skills. However, there are many multi-trades around who are professional at many combined trade skills"

    "Try and aim for a carpenter who also is a joiner or a kitchen fitter, or who builds wardrobes because you are aiming for a tight finish with minimum filling !!!"
