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?
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.

Emulsioning & Glossing Sons Bedroom

"Brilliant job done in transforming my sons bedroom. Couldn't decide between two colours for feature wall and Peter recommended the lighter shade. I couldn't be happier with the results. The room looks absolutely fantastic. I organised the work in advance when my son was away on a school trip and it was all completed in time for his return. To say he was chuffed to bits is an understatement!! Totally transformed from wee boys room to a teen/grown up space. Looks like a posh hotel room! Again Peter advised on colours and type of paint and the work was completed to an excellent standard!
Thanks again. Very very happy 😄"

Emulsion & Glossing

"Yet again, another fantastic job completed by Kirkdec. This time it was the kitchen and small loo. All our internal doors are white panelled and difficult to do yourself. With the prep work, quality paint and time taken to do the job properly , they look like new again. We are delighted with the work and have booked again for our bedroom in the New Year and would strongly recommend this firm! Thanks Peter for another excellent job"

Emulsioning, papering and gloss work bedroom and kitchen

"I found Kirkdec via the internet after becoming frustrated by the poor quality work and unreliability of previous decorators. I hate paying anyone to do a job that is worse than what I could achieve myself! First job was our bedroom and being quite particular I have to say I was very impressed with the standard of finish to the walls and ceilings and particularly the gloss work which has remained bright white instead of the usual turning yellow within 3 months of previous efforts. Peter has just completed our kitchen and again the finish is excellent,he is now booked for our living room next."

Hall & 2 bedrooms

"I was recommended Kirkdec by a friend & i am delighted with the results. Another superb job done! Previously decorated my dining room which looks amazing and now I feel like I'm in a new house. Peter will help you decide on colours and is very particular ensuring door handles removed etc. Lots of prep work done to guarantee an excellent outcome. I will not go anywhere else now. My parents after seeing the completed work are booking Peter too. Had friends round for lunch today & they were amazed at the transformation. Booking Peter to come back again for kitchen! Says it all really! !?"
