came to quote, agreed a deposit for materials and day to start, never came on the day as had a family death and would come the following day. Following day never turned up. Arranged to start in a further 2 days time as he assured me he would be able to start despite the death. 2 days later never turned up again and said he was sorry and would give my deposit back, 3 weeks later no deposit refund and not contacted me again. Thankfully small deposit. Stay away. Unreliable

Painters and decorators - what you need to know

What a painter and decorator can help with

  • Applying coats of paint (primer and undercoat), to the inside or the exterior of your home.
  • Hanging wallpaper.
  • Adding special finishes like glazes or marbling.
  • They’ll work out how much paint is needed for the size of the walls.
  • Stripping off old wallpaper or layers of paint.
  • Filling holes and cracks and making sure surfaces are level
  • Mixing paint to the right shade, often using computerised colour-matching equipment.

However, if you go with a professional, there are lots of advantages. First off, you’ll get someone who can do it in record time – so why waste a weekend when you can leave a pro to take care of it while you’re at work.

Painters and decorators will also have a full range of tools to get the job done. It’s not just brushes and paint tins – they’ll have:

  • Plastic and fabric to protect floors.
  • A full range of brushes, rollers and sprays.
  • Wallpaper strippers.
  • Masking tape so their lines are perfect.
  • Large A-frame ladders or scaffolding for high ceilings.

They’re also well versed in calculating exactly how much paint they’ll need to complete the job, so there’s no excess spending on tins, and definitely no last-minute dashes to the shops.

When decorating bathrooms, a pro will know the best materials to use that won’t be too affected by damp or water.

A quality tradesperson will even be able to help you pick colours, or find the perfect match of shade that you’re looking for.

All-in-all you’ll get a slick, professional finish, as well as the creative eye of someone who does it for a living.

Costs for common painting and decorating jobs

Costs will ultimately depend on:

  • The size of the room, wall or ceiling.
  • The condition of the room to start with.
  • Whether old wallpaper needs stripping first.
Some typical jobs Low High
Removing décor £75 £250
Wallpapering £100 £500
removing painting £150 £125
Painting £75 £750

Planning permission for painting and decorating jobs

Planning permission is not generally required for internal decorating. However, if you live in a listed building you should contact your Local Planning Authority.

Insurance for painting and decorating jobs

Most tradespeople should have public liability insurance to cover them against any damage done to your home – always ask about this before you hire someone.

Questions you should ask a painter and decorator

  • Do they have public liability insurance and what does this cover?
  • How long have they been trading for?
  • Will they give a guarantee/warranty for the work and how long does it last?
  • Will they source all materials and equipment?
  • Can they help with colour schemes and/or matching colours.
  • Do they have examples and references for previous work?
