Hall,stairs,landing and downstairs cloakroom decoration inc stripping off dark brown staircase paint

Russell and Amanda worked tirelessly, resulting in an extremely professional finish- we are extremely pleased with the results. They were always prompt to start at 8am and worked through their breaks, cleaning up after themselves and ensuring all carpeted and brand new doors protected. We would strongly recommend them.

Interior and exterior work

I was recommended Taylors services by a work colleague who was very happy with them I was extremely impressed with the professional advice, price and work I had an extensive list of interior and exterior work that needed attention in my recently purchased project house I didn't realise the amount of time and work that would go into it but I have to say Russell and team broke the back of it, I like no fuss, no mess, and a high standard of work done and that's exactly what I got. I would happily recommend them and use again

Exterior repainting

Verified Review

It was a pleasure to meet Russell and he has just completed a fantastic job of protecting and repainting my very tired front door, steps and masonary work. His work is thorough, professional and quick. I would highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again in the near future.

Front room and dining room

Verified Review

Russel did an amazing job with our downstairs. We went away while the work was carried out so it was reassuring to receive daily photos of the progress. The professional approach was clear to see for the start, and he even pulled in some help to speed up the work after we said we had to come home a day early…Highly recommend.

Decorating hallway, landing and stairs

Verified Review

Russell beat our expectations. We recently bought a Victorian house in need of some makeover in the hallway and landing. Russell came and advised, was professional and realistic. He was prompt with providing a quote and advice - and has transformed the space over 4 days. During this time nothing was too much trouble. Being away we received WhatsApp updates on progress. Extensive preparation was done and are delighted with the final result. Would certainly have Russell and Amanda back for our next project. Cannot recommend highly enough.
