Building finishes are usually the last aspects of building construction; they are applied on walls floors and ceilings. Some finishing materials used for these building elements include paint, polyvinyl (PVC), ceramic, mosaic, marble and granite tiles and stones. These materials add beauty and value to a building in particular and to the environment in general. Many buildings in Oluyole new extension, a residential estate in Ibadan, are not painted and some of them are not even plastered, this gives an impression that the landlords of those buildings cannot afford the cost of external decoration (Like painting). Questionnaires were distributed randomly to landlords in the estate. An analysis of the responses of ninety six (96) out of one hundred and twenty (120) questionnaires distributed to landlord shows that their reasons are more of social security than of economy.
