Chris again did a fabulous thorough job for us, this time painting the woodwork in our hall and staircase including all the doors. He is a perfectionist and really cares about doing a professional job. He is very tidy and is a pleasure to have in the house. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Chris. (Reviewed September 2020)

So personal, professional and a joy to have in the house. (Reviewed August 2019)
Chris has made a spectacular job of decorating my bedroom. The time and effort he spent on the preparation meant that he managed to turn walls and woodwork that were in a very poor condition, to look like new. I am delighted at the outcome, and would highly recommend Chris, as many others have done before me. (Reviewed August 2019)

Chris is very professional and reliable
He decorated most of my house and has done a superb job
I have been very impressed with the high standard of his work. He is also very cheerful and helpful and nothing is too much trouble for him. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs a first class decorator (Reviewed May 2019)
We couldn't be happier with the quality job Chris has done in our sitting room and garden room. We will have no hesitation in recommending him to neighbours and friends. (Reviewed March 2019)

Despite problems found in stripping wood chip wallpaper and a poor wall surface a good job was done on time and on budget. A very competent company. (Reviewed May 2018)
Excellent level of service both in decorating finish and customer service. Helpful, reliable and I wouldn't go to anyone else - thank you! (Reviewed May 2018)
This decorator believes that he does no wrong and always does a perfect job. Well he doesn't!.
And that was our problem. Paint came away from the wall that he painted and a gap opened up in the coving only five weeks after he had finished painting. He blamed the plaster for being substandard even though it had been replastered three months before and nothing had been wrong with it Interns of it coming away from the wall. The paint that had come off was .5 mm thick and the plaster that had been put on was 3 mm thick. None of that plaster came off, only paint. He also blamed the house for moving to explain the gaps in the coving even though the house has been here for over 30 years and the cracking appeared in one part of the room only.
The problem is that he has refused to come back and fix these items even though he has been paid 6 to £7000 to decorate our whole house and this was the last place to be done. He has not fulfilled his requirements under the consumer Act for goods and services 2015. The problem is that he has refused to come back and fix these items even though he has been paid £6-7,000 to decorate our whole house and this was the last place to be done.
Chris is very personable but he shows no good will to fix something, that would take him less than an hour to fix. He doesn't care (not my problem) that our newly decorated living room, dining room and kitchen have been left with damage from him not having sized the wall properly or used eneough filler around the coving.
I won't use him again and if you care about things going wrong and being rectified, you shouldn't either.
Response from the business:
Having never received a complaint in 35 years of running my business, I am disappointed that this customer felt leaving this feedback was the best way forward. When he rang me to inform me of the issue, I immediately visited to assess the situation. I showed him evidence of the plastering being at fault which he wouldn't accept. I suggested an independent assessor was required and followed this opinion up with a letter giving evidence that the fault did not lie with the painting.
As nothing further was communicated to me I assumed that it had been agreed with the plasterer that it was in fact up to him to make good.
