Quote from Chris was a good price and carried out on a weekend day as my only day off work and turning up on time, covered up everything in kitchen and got preparation for ceilings done by breakfast and then after work done cleaned up everything and checked out the drying painting work with me and left me a happy customer and on this job done I would highly recommend this guy.

Did a great job on decorating my 2 rooms, did everything start to finish from preparing the walls and painting, came back multiple times to make sure they were up to standard. Checked in with me to make sure they had dried out ok. Hard worker, very reliable, and very nice to work with. More...

Chris is a fantastic bloke who does a great job and goes out of his way to ensure you are happy. He is very knowledgable and provides a great service. We have used him a few times now and would recommend him. He wall papered our front room, then came out to paint our hallway, we then asked him to fix a pipe which loose on our house. Great job every time More...

I have got past the 2 years of being self employed painter after working with a company that refitted high end shops for 4 years as the painter decorator working on shops covering the uk

I own and restock my work kit which I use to carry out my work, using my kit is a way of using what I am used to and good quality products plus I do have a favourite make of kit

I enjoy the whole lot, quoting, carrying out the work, looking at the before and after pictures, seeing the customers happy! Hopefully!!!

May 2020 ! The lockdown period I was laid off after being on furlough, I had no job no equipment, partner also at home as a high risk so I used my last wages including holiday money, week in hand etc to buy enough start up kit, set up social media sites and did couple jobs for family and my home to get some pictures and started from there, from July onwards it’s been very good considering the bad timing

Along with my experience as a painter I am a new business with lots of energy to build up business so I have a full dairy! Work mostly on my own so I do the work start to finish, happy to make a living and don’t need to become a millionaire so costs are competitive

Quoting can be done online by sending me some pictures of the work areas that needed work and message saying what you wanted done and what colours etc !

I carry masks and hand sanitizer and when working at customers homes the 2 metre distance is carried out at all times, on leaving jobs I clean up any surfaces / door handles etc
