"Gary was recommended to us by my brother who had used Gary for some excellent external painting. We had two rooms to wallpaper with some pretty expensive paper. Wanting a professional and neat finish, using Gary delivered this in a tidy professional manner and we would definitely use his services again."

"When you find a good tradesman, don’t let him go!

Gary was the only decorator to respond to my initial contact. He was quick to respond, quick to quote, and did everything he said he would. Very adaptable and easy to talk to, to help fit in with my schedule.

I was delighted with how careful and methodical he was, and the end results speak for themselves. I will definitely use Gary again."

Nick Collier

"Since buying our cottage back in November 2011 Gary has transformed it, both internally and externally! Gary's preparation is meticulous, his work is always tidy and the finish to his painting and decorating is the best we have ever seen. He has worked wonders in every room of our home. The standard of his work is second to none and we would always recommend his services."

"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.

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. In the end a neighbour recommended Gary. It turned out to be a great choice.

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. 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.

He 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.

We are delighted with the outcome and feel it was worth every penny we spent."
