Look no further Magnum Decorating will tick all of your boxes and more.
Magnum is the name of the business run by John Wale. John has been a decorator for 30+ years, he started in the 1980's when the building boom was at its height working on new build houses. He later ventured out into the residential side, amassing many satisfied customers along the way.

In the early 00's John became a teacher of Painting and Decorating, teaching in Oxford, Harlow and Chippenham. He is an A1 Assessor and has assessed many apprentices along the way. However, John decided to hang up his hush puppies for his work boots again, which he says is the best decision he has ever made. John works with some of his previous apprentices when needed this ensures quality is maintained, as all labour that John employs is qualified.
Please have a look around at some of our pictures, we can undertake all types of decorating:

  • Interior and Exterior
  • Any type of wallpaper
  • All paint types 
  • Hand Painted Wall Murals

Free advice is something that is valuable to potential customers, to help them make the most out of their new project. Magnum now has its own YouTube Channel, fill of informative videos with a little fun along the way
