    Richard, from Rags2Riches, Torbay, Devon, gave us a swift, very competitive quote, took NO 'money up front' nor 'stage payments'. He attended when he said he would, and his team were quick, efficient and all nice guys, respectful and hard-working. He's just completed a cracking good job, nothing was too much trouble, and he even did a couple of small bits that were not on the estimate, free of charge. An excellent trade experience from a straightforward, likeable team. HIGHLY recommended.

    Richard and his crew did an excellent job painting our new extension! Richard offers a very competitive quote and completed the work promptly and to an excellent standard. The whole team were very tidy, reliable and professional, I would 100% recommend. We will be asking Richard to paint the rest of our house, both internal and external later this year.

    Absolutely thrilled with the quality of workmanship. House looks superb. Had the entire house repainted after unfortunately employing painter who had used the wrong paint. Definitely would recommend and use again. Works carried out were to perfection and the painter was very courteous, quite and tidy. Thank you!
