Company info

Hello and welcome to MJL Decorating Services.

I have 36 years’ experience in the decorating trade, having served a 4-year apprenticeship, gaining City & Guilds qualification in both craft and craft advanced Painting & Decorating and also sign work.

Decorating is a passion of mine and gives me a great sense of pride and satisfaction. I have a wide range of experience in every aspects of the trade, and a good knowledge of all trade products, which is key in today's marketplace.

I pride myself on a very high finish, but the service I provide is also very important to me, keeping my clients updated and informed is of paramount importance. I keep the workplace clean and tidy and my hoover is a very important part of my toolbox. 

I believe preparation is the art of all decoration work  and use both Mirka & Festool professional sanding machines attached to the Mirka dust extraction sanding unit as much as possible to keep the dust to a bare minim but with excellent preparation results.

Not only have tools changed for the better, materials and paints have changed considerably, I now use a wide range of materials and have been using Benjamin Moore and Tikirula paints for the majority of my work, as I feel these products have a better , longer lasting and a beautiful finish to the eye

Hand painted kitchens and furniture are of particular interest to me, I really enjoy getting a huge amount of job satisfaction from hand painted kitchens & furniture, and highly enjoy the high level of preparation and needed to get the high level finish within these jobs. Almost any kitchen can be painted , so if your kitchen is functional , but you feel it’s looking dated or tired, please do contact us, it will save you thousands of Pounds as its far cheaper to paint your existing kitchen than replacing it . Please see our web page for more details.

Thank you for taking the time to look at MJL Decorating services home page and we look forward to working with you in the near future
