Frequently Asked Questions.
Q.The Company Name - The Stripy Paint Company - What's that about?
A:In many workplaces a new employee would be sent off to look for things that couldn’t be found as a practical joke. The new employee would often then been sent from place to place in search of the item until someone took pity on them and explained that the item didn’t exist. In the building industry common items to be sent to look for are – sky hooks, glass hammers, buckets of steam, skirting board ladders, Stripy Paint etc. At The Stripy Paint Company we do a lot of searching..
Q. Do you have a salvage yard?
A: We do not have a yard open to the public as we source directly for the end customer and therefore we do not tend to carry much stock. Our approach is different - we will come to you to establish what you need and then we will deliver the end product to you. Alternatively we can establish your needs via email or phone etc. and send samples to you for approval.
Q. Can I collect from you?
A: Yes we are based in Co Leitrim and this can be arranged or we can arrange collection from other locations.
