"We all know how difficult it is to find good and reliable tradesmen these days but we certainly struck gold when we came across Colin ! We believe in patronising local shops and craftsmen where possible and that is how we came across his on-line entry. We were lucky that he was able to come and see the work required and he quickly provided an on-line quotation which was very fair and which he stuck to punctiliously.

The work was quite extensive comprising a bedroom and ensuite, a separate bathroom, a kitchen/breakfast room and a very large lounge/dining room the ceiling of which had been recently plastered.

He was able to fit us in, having some free days, and set to work with a will. His preparation was painstaking but he worked in a clean and tidy manner, moving large items of furniture that we could not manage, making good walls and painting walls, ceiling and woodwork.

He worked away with virtually no breaks and was careful, diligent and skillfull .

We are left with rooms to be proud of . The result is terrific and we can certainly say that he is the finest decorator we have ever come across.

It is apparent that Colin has a lifetime of experience and we have already asked him to carry out some further work for us when the weather warms up!

From our own experience we can wholeheartedly recommend him and are thankful that we found him!"

He arrived bright & early each morning and immediately set to work, barely stopping for a break. Courteous and diligent, and extremely professional, I could not have wanted for a better Tradesman.
There was no mess, everything was diligently covered and the finish was top class. I would highly recommend Colin to anybody looking to redecorate their home."

"Colin and son Ben re-decorated our hall, landing and stairs over 3 and a half days. Every aspect of the work was outstanding: the quality of the work, the lack of mess, the speed of execution and general helpfulness. They are really nice guys to have around and made helpful suggestions as the job progressed. They also offer exceptional value. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Colin for any decorating work."

"Colin and Ben redecorated all the external woodwork on our house. They were an absolute pleasure to have around the property as they were courteous, polite and thorough. They had to work in slightly difficult circumstances as we were having our bathroom refurbished at the same time but they were understanding and flexible about working around the other trades people. My wife and I highly recommend them and just wish that all organisations provided such excellent customer service."

5 star feedback left on my Which? Trusted Traders Page:

"Colin and Ben did a great job painting three rooms in our house over three days. They were friendly and polite. The quotes were reasonable. They were happy to change various aspects once we had decided what we wanted, even some aspects on the day. Fixing a date to fit in with other trades involved proved a bit more tricky as they are quite booked up! The quality of the decorating is good."

"Colin was recommended to us by a really good friend (who still uses him) and has been decorating for us now for about 20 years. I, in turn have recommended him and he is used by friends and a neighbour too. It is a reflection of his work ethic and professionalism that we have used him for so long, and if he has been unavailable we are prepared to wait until he can fit us in. Colin's quotes are very fair and reasonable and we have never had cause to quibble. He is always on time and works very quickly and efficiently and is super tidy. Another fine quality is his quite unobtrusive presence. I trust him implicitly and do not hesitate to leave him in the house alone."
