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: 89%
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.

Customer Review
 
Steve was recommended by another trade. The joiner who was the main contractor for my attic conversion had arranged all other trades apart from a painter

I'd previously had some painting done by another painter and wasn't very happy with his work so I was really pleased to have Steve Foley

I've since had Steve return and paint and wallpaper my living room
 

"Keeps in touch
Always punctual
I've recommended Steve Foley to other people in the street. They have then recommended him to friends.

I wouldn't have another painter as I know I can phone Steve and he will come and give me a fair price.

Does a very neat and professional job everyone who has had Steve do a job has commented favorably and a lot of these jobs have become repeat customers.

External painterwork on harled brickwork, rubbing down and coating all cast iron rainwater goods, rubbing down and undercoating with then two top-coats on external windows and doors.
Internal stripping of wallpaper and re-papering with lining paper and finished wallpaper.
 

"Steve is an exceptionally studious and hardworking decorator. He has undertaken numerous projects for me and I find him clean, tidy and always on time- I'm more than happy to leave Steve keys to property and know that he'll look after all aspects of the job in hand.
If there's something he's unsure about, he'll get in touch and if there's something he feels he can't do he'll know someone who can.
I'd highly recommend him."
