Painters and decorators St Albans

Painters and decorators St Albans – Gary Hobbs Decor

I have vast experience in period properties within the local and surrounding areas. St Albans based for the past 22 years. Much of our business is repetitive, customers love to ask for our continued service as their homes evolve.

So we frequently get invited to work on houses while the owners are away on holiday and so  upon their return they have a fresh looking room…or home!

Being a traditional painting and decorating company covering all internal and external works. However, we use present-day techniques – Festool sanders attached to a dust extraction unit so providing a dust free environment, visit

Happy Customer

“Last autumn we finally decided it was time to get the front of our house repainted. It had been nearly 10 years since it had been done and was really beginning to look dingy: peeling paint, wood showing through and fading colours not to mention scratches on the door where it had been kicked countless times in winter months.

So we approached two different painters we saw working in our street. One said he would give us a quote and never did. The other did, but somehow didn’t fill us with confidence. And in the end a neighbour recommended Gary. It turned out to be a great choice.

So we needed scaffolding to get to the upper windows because it’s a large house (7 large windows and a double front door), but Gary took care of all that. Also the weather was just beginning to turn so it wasn’t possible to paint every day. No problem. Because Gary worked when he could and left things well covered up when he couldn’t. He meticulously stripped the wood right back using a machine that sucked up the dust.

Then, carefully and systematically primed the wood, applied an undercoat and then a second coat. He was always cheerful, courteous and considerate both to us and to passers-by: we lost count of the number of people (particularly older ladies) who stopped to admire Gary’s work. We never felt that Gary was cutting corners. Rather he was a perfectionist from start to finish.

Because of all this, we are delighted with the outcome so, it was worth every penny we spent.”
