    The work carried out by Danny was excellent. He arrived on time each day. Was very professional and polite. He cleaned and tidied everything when he finished for the day. Would definitely recommend him and will use his expertise again in the future. Thank you Danny for a great job done.

    Danny is a professional and friendly tradesman. His work is high-end and he is an expert in all things painting (interior and exterior). He came highly recommend and did not disappoint! His work is meticulous and he has an eye for detail. The finish is smooth like glass - we couldn’t be happier. It was a big job and Danny kept us up-to-date throughout. He also helped us out with a bit of extra work once he was here and still was able to finish a day earlier than estimated. He is a hard worker, honest and reliable. Highly recommend! Thanks Danny!

  • Spraying our staircases black

    10Verified Review

    Have used Danny previously, and he's always done a great job, the staircases were a big project but he's done an amazing job. We're just waiting for the carpet to finish everything off but we couldn't be happier. Great advice, hard working and certainly knows his stuff when it comes to spraying, the overall finish is stunning. Highly recommended.

  • Bedroom fully re-decorated including MDF panelling spray finish

    10Verified Review

    Danny is very knowledgable in his trade, hardworking and punctual. He starts as soon as he arrives and doesn’t stop until he leaves. He’s clean and tidy and takes great care to protects all surfaces, floors and carpets well. It’s good to see a tradesman who takes a lot of pride in his work as you know that you’ll get a good finish and the finish was perfect and to a very high standard. Danny has also painted my kitchen walls and spray painted a home made MDF island. He makes a cheap material look classy and expensive. I will definitely be using Danny again and would highly recommend

    Danny and his team are very professional and courteous, the preparation is first class, they cleaned up at the end of every day, the Dustless sanding system they use is brilliant. The finish is Immaculate. We are very happy to use and recommend DRL Decorating

Dustless Sanding

Spray Finishing

I only use the best quality materials and paints.

Reliable, clean and trustworthy.

Specialising in Spray Finishes to all woodwork, doors, MDF media units, panelling, bespoke bookcases etc. Using the correct methods of preparation and masking to achieve a high end finish that adheres and lasts.

I use the Festool Dustless Sanding System which is fast, efficient, clean and provides a healthier working environment for the customer and myself! It also gives a high standard finish to the surface prior to painting.

Also specialising in exterior work on Victorian and Tudor style properties.

(Exterior season starts in May and ends at the end of September)

I pride myself on being the best from start to finish and always deliver a high standard finish.
