5Star review from 56 reviews

Internal Decorating 5Star review Have just had Shef and Tommy to decorate the inside of my house and what a good job they have done. They were punctual, friendly, trustworthy and had good regard of my personal belongs. They would offer suggestions, if I wasn't sure about something. They always tided up before they left. They worked really hard and only stopped a couple of times (10-15mins) for refreshments. They will be back in a couple of months to complete the work. What a brilliant father and son team. I would highly recommend them.

I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Decorating 5Star review I had two rooms, a hall and landing decorated by Shef & his son Tommy. They were always on time and respectful of your property. I don’t have many straight lines in my house and opted for a dark colour next to a light colour (sorry guys) so cutting in was an art in itself. They’ve done a lovely job, I’d definitely recommend them to friends and family. Thank you Shef and Tommy see you next time I’ve some decorating to do

Superb Decorator 5Star review Shef & his son decorated my bedroom & also painted all my bedroom furniture. They did a fabulous job. They were punctual, polite & very respectful of our home. We are thrilled with the quality of their work & extremely fair price wise too. I have since recommended him to my friend & he has fully decorated her entire flat. She is also extremely happy and he is now going to carry out work for my mother. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Shef for any decorating needs.

House decoration 5Star review Shef redecorated our entire house in June 2019. He was very efficient throughout the whole project which took around 3 weeks, working around our family and furniture. He made sure everything was protected each day and then uncovered everything at the end of the day so we could still live comfortably in the house. The work was done to a high standard throughout and Shef was very happy to pick up some minor snagging at the end. Highly recommended!

Comment graphicAndrew  28 Aug 2019

Thanks to Shef and John we now have wonderful looking doors. If you need any decorating work done, call these guys.

Excellent standard! 5Star review Absolute Decorating decorated my whole house. From start to finish they were proffessional, polite and patient while I chose colours and changed my mind! There was minimal disruption, which, with a baby could have been difficult and they cleaned and tidied after them. They stuck to their quote and timescale. The house now looks like a home and the trimmings are of high standard. I wouldnt hesitate to have them back or recommend them. Go on paint your house!
