  • Decoration of Lounge

    10Verified Review

    S.D.S. Builders and Decorators Hastings Ltd recently decortated our lounge. This is the third job they have done for us and, as previously, they were courteous, reliable and efficient from when they first visited to view the work and prepare their estimate right through to the completion of the work. They arrived to start the work exactly as arranged, the quality of their work was excellent, and the work area was left clean and tidy on completion. We will have no hesitation in using them again or recommending them to others.

    They were always friendly and helpful and on time! They were helpful about sourcing the paint and very tidy and thorough. When glitches occurred they were sorted out quickly, and they did a great job with relining a ceiling

    10Verified Review

    Steve, Mick and the team transformed the Exterior of our house. Preparing and painting the masonry, windows, doors, front wall. Which was in great need of some refurbishment. Great communication, the guys worked tirelessly, were extremely punctual, and very thorough. A really friendly team, who were a pleasure to have around. The job came in on budget, which for a big project was very impressed. Would highly recommend the team.
