My name is Michael Ritchie I have been in the painting and decorating industry for 32 years. I have studied at Portsmouth university to gain qualifications in restoration and decoration and  decorative painting techniques.

I started M J Ritchie décor and guttering services in 1995 and have been a ICI DULUX member since 1999 and a BUY WITH CONFIDENCE Hampshire trading standards member since 2001 giving the customer reassurance and peace of mind that any works carried out will be of a professional standard.

My career has seen me take on many different painting projects from painting a domestic dwelling to  grand houses and from painting pubs,hotels to warships.

My work force is myself and 1 other but hoping to expand in the near future.So you are guaranteed that personal one to one interaction from start to finish of any projects.
