I established Modern Decor in 1991 and I work as a sole trader. Since then, the business has grown and has gone from strength to strength, mainly due to the high volume of personal recommendations received from existing clients.

I have been a member of Dulux Select Decorators since 1998 and received TrustMark accreditation in April 2007. To gain membership, I passed an extensive auditing procedure, and meet the high standards required to promote myself as a Dulux Decorator.  For further details, including recommendations from previous customers, please visit my web page at


I am Trading Standards approved and I was a member of the Buy with Confidence scheme run by Surrey Trading Standards from February 2005 until February 2015, which was set up to help eradicate the problem of rogue traders and ensure maximum consumer protection.  This scheme has now been replaced with a new partnership between Checkatrade and Surrey Trading Standards and as an approved member I can display the Trading Standards Approved badge.  Further information about the scheme is available on the following website

The majority of my work consists of interior and exterior painting and decorating, although I also undertake small building work projects for my clients.  I use the best quality Dulux Trade products for a lasting quality finish and work carried out on private residential properties carries a 2 year guarantee, underwritten by Dulux Trade.  I am also insured for up to £2 million for public liability for your peace of mind.

I would like to thank you for reading my profile and look forward to providing you with a quotation for your project.
