Welcome to Southbourne Decorating.

I am David Stapleton and I have been in the Decorating Trade for 25 years, specialising in all aspects of Domestic and Commercial Decorating.

I am fully qualified with a wealth of experience and knowledge in painting, decorating and refurbishments. 

I have City & Guilds certificates in the Craft of Painting & Decorating and in the Advanced Craft of Painting & Decorating. I have also taught Painting & Decorating and Wallpaper Hanging at Bournemouth & Poole College.

I became an approved member of the Dulux Approved Decorating Scheme in 2003.

We always work to best practice, using quality materials and all our work will be carried out in a clean & tidy manor. Adequate protection for all surfaces, fixtures and fittings will be provided and due care and attention will be taken to customer property at all times.

A no obligation written quote will be given after I have been to price the work required, which will include a breakdown of the works & materials required to complete the job.

I have a loyal, honest and reliable team that work with me, so no job is too large or too small. 

Thank you for your time.
