Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Exterior repainting of masonry, windows, soffits and fasciaís.
 
Cost: £5300
 

"TMA Decorators recently completed the exterior decoration of our detached house to an exceptionally high standard. We have used other decorators in the past and the standard of Tomís work is by far superior. He and his colleagues were conscientious and meticulous in their approach and also very friendly and helpful. We are delighted with the end result and will definitely use them again. We have no hesitation in highly recommending them."

Lounge redecoration including removal of dado rail, all preparation, painting and wallpapering feature wall.
 
Cost: £700
 

"A really good experience from the first contact to the end of the job.
The quote and pricing was clear. Tom was really personable and helpful and he and Michael worked hard to get the job done to a high standard. They were both friendly, punctual and polite. We were quite happy to leave them working and go out.
A great find and next time we need a decorator there will bd no need to look elsewhere. Very satisfied with the service and thrilled with our lovely room!
Thanks Tom and Michael - great job!"

Interior Decorating

"Tom has just completed decorating our Lounge/Diner, Bedroom, Stairs and Landing.Tom arrived punctually each day, kept to programme and takes pride in his work. We are very pleased with his work and the standards of finish achieved. It was a pleasure having him work in our house and he would definitely be our first choice for future decorating. On completion he volunteered to assist in moving furniture and bedding out of two rooms in readiness for carpet laying. We were both very grateful for his help.BRIAN STEVENS FEBRUARY 2016 "
