Company info

Roy Basten Decorating has a proven track record in Painting, decorating and remedial work carried out in customers’ homes.

I have been in the Painting and Decorating business for over 40 years with nearly 30 of these in the private and domestic market. I am experienced in dealing with all kinds of domestic household decorating problems and have a large portfolio of customer work on which to call.

In 1997 I applied to join the Dulux Select Decorator scheme, my skills were assessed and I was accepted and thus became a Dulux approved Select Decorator and able to offer a Dulux Backed workmanship guarantee. When the Dulux Select Decorator scheme was accepted in the Government backed Trustmark scheme, this optional guarantee became a 24 month workmanship guarantee backed by Dulux.

In 2004 I attended training at the Dulux academy in Dulux exterior trade products and the Repair Care window repair system.

In November 2006 as Roy Basten Decorating I joined Checkatrade.com a directory of trades where customers can leave feedback for members who have worked for them.

Please visit www.checkatrade.com/RoyBastenDecorating to see what customers say about my work and workmanship.

In February 2009 I was Bracknell first painter and decorator to be accepted on Bracknell’s Trading Standards Buy with Confidence scheme. www.buywithconfidence/roybastendecorating

In February 2009 I was awarded a Fellowship to the Dulux Select Decorator scheme in recognition of my commitment and support of the scheme.

Also, in February 2009 I became a Repair Care approved contractor after attending Repair Care International Advanced training course in joinery resin repairs.

In November 2020 Roy Basten Decorating was endorsed as a Which Trusted Trader.

Painting hall, stairs and landing. Replacing upstairs doors. Supplying and fitting radiator cover.

Verified Review

This was the second time we have used Roy. We were very impressed the first time and he did not disappoint this time. Roy is an excellent decorator. He provides a thorough quote and is happy to suggest ideas. He is professional, doing an excellent job, always leaving the house clean and tidy. On both of the occasions we have used Roy he has spent hours sourcing products, dealing with other companies on our behalf, always keeping us updated and securing good quality products. I would not hesitate in recommending Roy for both inside and outside decorating.

External painting: garage door and frame; front porch; soffits

Verified Review

As usual with Roy's work, I am very pleased with the end results: an excellent job done before the winter sets in. All areas were rubbed down, undercoated and top-coated as appropriate. The garage door was treated for areas of rust and two undercoats and two top-coats applied. Roy and his mate turned up when they said they would, usually 8am, cleared up at the end of each session and were generally helpful and willing to go that extra mile. I couldn't ask for more.

Living room redecoration

Roy redecorated our living room in our new house and turned it from an awful orange to a lovely clean and crisp cream. He fixed all the issues with cracked ceilings and yellowing doors. The finished room looks lovely and we are over the moon with the transformation. Roy was totally professional, reliable and we would highly recommend him all day long !!!
