  • Redecorating throughout our home

    7.25Verified Review

    Ant worked throughout our home over 2022 and briefly in 2023, making good on poor decorating work done by builders. In 2022, he worked quietly and efficiently, his workmanship was very good, as he had high standards for himself. In 2023 something changed. His communication was so poor we had to chase for months, and when he did come back his work wasn't as good. He said he'd finished the work but hadn't, leaving half a day's work to complete and patches he'd missed, so standards had slipped. Calls and messages have gone unanswered since August 23. Therefore, sadly, we would not recommend Ant.

    Yet another fantastic transformation of a room by Ant and Taya. A bedroom this time. Immaculate job just as they did on our bathroom. We are hoping that they can find space in their busy schedule to help us move onto the next stage in the refurbishment of our flat.

  • Painting the bathroom

    10Verified Review

    Ant and Taya have done a fantastic job with the decoration of our bathroom. Ant was very helpful with his advice about the choice of paint, oversight of the whole project and doing the extra jobs that really made a difference eg adjusting ill-fitting doors. The finished bathroom reflects the meticulous attention paid by Taya to the preparation of surfaces and application of paint. We are very pleased with the outcome and look forward to Ant and Taya doing further work as we refurbish our flat.

    Very competitive quote. Ant is professional, very knowledgeable and friendly. He uses a paint manufacturer which is superb quality but at a good price. I was going to use Little Greene but used his suggestion. It saved money and very impressed with the final finish. Work completed to a very high standard, including repairing a large area in the dry wall ceiling and damaged plaster. All high end dust sheets and coverings used, house returned very clean. Highly recommended.

  • Painting of farmhouse annexe

    Excellent as always! Attention to detail, from preparation of all surfaces, to filling every hole (our carpenter did the panelling and left a LOT of making good which Anthony made light work of). Anthony is a perfectionist as are the team that work with him. An excellent finish and always tidy and on time.

  • Refurbished Victorian sash windows in community hall decorated to very high standard

    9.75Verified Review

    This was an intricate, time-consuming job which some decorators were unwilling to take on. Ant's work was painstaking and to a very high standard. He was careful to use the most appropriate materials for each element of the work. He was able to work flexibly so that normal activities at the community hall could continue undisturbed, and was a pleasure to have around the place.
