Customer Review
 
Paul repaired a major crack in the wall between the orignal brickwork and an extension. He had to fill the crack, replaster and paint. The crack was extending into the ceiling and was very unsightly. He also repaired a bowed ceiling in the bedroom where we had a leak from the flat roof and repaired many other cracks and issues in the paintwork throughout the house. Doing more than he originally quoted for at no extra cost. It was three full days of hard work in total.
 
Cost: £770
 

"Paul's work was of the highest standard and he was incredibly knowledgeable about the fillers and paints that are available and made sure that I was getting the best and most appropriate materials on the market. He was the epitomy of professionalism, punctual, polite and very tidy. He left the house spotless. I could not recommend him highly enough and will definitely be asking him to do any further work in the future."

Painted hallway/stairs and bedroom

"Paul did a fantastic job of decorating our hall way and second bedroom. He arrived on time, was very considerate, cleaning up after himself at the end of the first day and leaving the place immaculate once he'd finished. He did everything for the price quoted (which was very reasonable, given the quality of work), there were no nasty surprises in the bill. We will definitely use him again!"

Domestic painting and wallpaper hanging

"We used this decorator, Paul, for our dining room, stairs and landing. In a nutshell his work was truly excellent. The attention to detail in his preparation was outstanding and something you donít see much of these days. Basically he takes extreme pride in his work, refitting skirting boards completely because they were badly positioned originally as an example. I particularly liked the folds of the wallpaper into the window bays they were sharp, crisp, tight, Perfect! Paintwork was also excellent the detail in door mouldings was still there, not all Ďgobbed upí with excessive paint. Quite simply he is now our decorator of choice, all future business to him. Yes heís expensive BUT if you want quality it costs and Paul delivers, and afterwards youíll realise it was worth every penny."

Paint large lounge, make good large holes in drywall, paint walls, ceiling, repair to water damage, paint skirting. 2 storey house, paint large ceiling on stairs, 2 landings, 2 sets of stairs, downstairs hall, again walls, ceilings and skirtings, 11 sets of doorways to paint, architraves etc,(not doors, these were oak)
 
Cost: £3800
 

"Perfection!! Even though we were satisfied Paul worked over until he was satisfied, Paul is very guarded about his reputation and it shows in the quality of his work. We also took his guidance on materials and colour schemes and were not disappointed, he's not cheap but then not expensive, remember, you pay peanuts.... Ask yourself, do you want your painting done every 2 years because it hasn't lasted that long or would you just rather get it done properly once , He also covered large holes in our drywall to give a seemless finish, saving us money on a plasterer"

We had our hall done by Paul last week.

"Great work, we are thrilled to bits with the result. Paul works very conscientiously. Cleans up at the end of his shift, always a bonus with tradesmen. Would and have recommended him to others. Thanks Maureen."

Painting and decorating across several rooms and hallways, including wallpaper removal and hanging, patch filling, wood work, tile restoration, and modifying and making good of decorative arches.
 
Cost: £6000
 

"We used Paul to redecorate almost half of our house. Not only is the work to a very high standard, as other reviews show too, but we were particularly impressed by Paul's diligence and creativity, his willingness to talk through options, and determination to solve problems. He even corrected substandard work done by other tradesmen (the sanding of our tiles in hallway)! Overall we are very happy, and looking forward to having him back to decorate our new kitchen in the autumn. Highly recommend."

Decorates 2 bedrooms

"Paul decorated 2 bedrooms for us, we were on a tight timescale and he met this with ease. His attention to detail is outstanding and gave a very professional finish to the rooms. I will definitely be using Paul again when we get round to decorating the rest of the house, highly recommended."

Customer Review
 
Fully decorating a tired and dated lounge dining room and hall stairs and landing. Involved preparing all walls by stripping the existing paper and repairing areas of plaster by digging back to the brickwork in some areas. All walls lined with paper to give clean lines and the appearance of a smooth plaster surface. Papered feature walls on one side of the lounge diner and one side of the hall, stairs and landing. All woodwork prepared and painted and the stairs banister given a varnish finish to show an underlying grain effect. Door furniture changed and a new door latch created for the under stairs cupboard.

"Paul has transformed rooms with tired and dated decorating into rooms with a bright modern feel and the stairs banister is nothing short of a work of art. Paul's attention to detail is second to none and he keeps you informed about what he is doing every step of the way. It is obvious he takes great pride in doing the job right and never cuts corners which shows in the final finish. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Paul to anybody looking for an outstanding and professional painting and decorating job."

Paul repaired a kitchen wall and painted. He gave excellent information about the type and rationale for work required. He gave a detailed quote and listed materials and paint. He was highly professional and committed to his craft. The outcome was fantastic.

"Decorating can be a stressful process but Paul made it pain free. He was exceptionally good at his job and I canít tecomm him highly enough. He was very pleasant and approachable. He gave time and effort and worked extremely hard. I would use a Paul again and have recommended him to my neighbors next door."

Customer Review
 
In the kitchen where we had replaced a cooker hood which was smaller than the original one, leaving repairs needing to be done to the wall and ceiling. Also we needed repairs to the wall in the kitchen and the lounge where we had additional power points installed.
 
Cost: £328
 

"Over the last few years we have used 1st Class Painting and Decorating to decorate our whole house. This time he repainted and made good areas in the kitchen where we had replaced a cooker hood which was smaller than the original one, leaving repairs needing to be done to the wall and ceiling. The end result was excellent. He also made good areas in the lounge and in the kitchen where we had recently had new power sockets installed. We recommend his attention to detail and workmanship without reservation."

Outstanding Lounge Stairs Landing Revamp

"This is the third time we've used 1st Class Painting and Decorating. To state that Paul is a perfectionist in everything he does would be an understatement. It's Paul's attention to detail and the additional little things that he does on the side, e.g fixing door handles/latches, fashioning ducting to hide wiring, etc which make him truly exceptional. Paul's work is outstanding and the final result utterly breathtaking, this guy knows his trade inside out and back to front and it shows. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Paul to anybody and we will definitely be using him again in the future."

Decorating hall ,stairs & landing.

"Superb job.
Paul has just finished decorating my hall,landing and 2 flights of stairs. This proved to be a challenging job,as many of the walls needed repairs and we changed dark varnished wood to white. He has completed the job to a very high standard and even managed to fit in some other minor repairs. Paul is an excellent tradesman,passionate about his work and totally reliable. I will certainly be using Paul again."

House Decorating

"I recently appointed Paul to decorate bedrooms, hall stairs landing, office, lounge and dining room. It was a large job with many challenges but nothing is beyond Paulís ability. His 20 years experience combined with his enthusiasm, knowledge and desire to put the customer first was very evident throughout the work. A friendly, trustworthy and hard working decorator; it was a pleasure to have him do the work and I would wholeheartedly recommend him. A very dedicated tradesman who is a credit to his profession."

Wallpaper & painting

"Paul recently decorated our hall, stairs and landing to a very high standard. He was reliable, hard working and offered honest helpful advice. Our walls were uneven in places & we had previously been advised that lining paper would not be suitable. Paul carefully prepared the walls before putting up the lining paper. His technique produced a very smooth professional finish and we are very pleased with the result.
