I have no hesitation in recommending Andy to anyone . His work is meticulous, he is very tidy, and the best value for money I have found. Always chirpy always on time and does exactly what he says he’s going to do . Also very trustworthy if you have to leave him to it and go to work . Old school values go a long way today . My finished job is superb, cannot find a fault . Thanks Andy hope to see you again soon .First class and knowledgeable decorator.

GREAT job. Explained everything clearly, use of lining paper and overall honest about what the final quality would be like. He gave a fixed price and stuck to it. He painted the skirting boards with a recognition of the carpet being changed, varnished the window sill, door and painted the ceiling. The finished job is neat, slick, and exactly what was needed. Andy was punctual every day, and finished in the time initially indicated. Would hire again in a heartbeat.

Andy did a fantastic job on a very awkward hall and staircase area. Very punctual. Left the area spotlessly clean. A fair price and an excellent finish. I highly recommend Andy's work.

Andy is an absolute credit to his profession - extremely diligent, thorough, reliable and trustworthy. We started just having Andy in to redo the living room, and were so happy with the results we called Andy back to do our hallway, stairs and master bedroom and he did an absolutely excellent job -we are so happy with the results. Will definitely get him back to do our nursery. I can unreservedly recommend Andy -was a lovely guy to have around very reliable, professional and discreet. Hire with confidence!

Excellent service! I can highly recommend Andrew! He decorated my living room, was on time, worked quickly and efficiently and kept everything very clean and tidy. I wanted a very good finish and although my paint was a bit tricky, Andrew did an outstanding job! Will definitely hire him again for any other decorating job I may need done in the future!

Andy was nothing but professional throughout the time he spent completing the job. A full re decorating of an office as part of an end of lease requirement. Andy went over and beyond expectation. Even when I had additional jobs that popped up at short notice, Andy was able to accommodate them. Trustworthy, friendly, great time keeping, high attention to detail and good at what he does. I would highly recommend Andy, will certainly be contacting Andy for future jobs and can not thank him enough!!

Great quality work, Andy was a delight to work with! Was flexible with start date as I needed to delay the work unexpectedly. Arrived promptly and cleared up at the end of the day. Completed work within the time specified, Andy even provided advice and tips on diy jobs I was undertaking myself! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for some wallpapering or decorating of any kind. Thanks Andy... your workmanship transformed my home!

I want to know how to best sort this problem out. Will a coat of anti damp paint do.

  • Andrew Smith's Answer

    Hi Reena, A coat of anti damp paint won't do it any harm but you may want to see what is causing the problem, is there a pipe on the other side of the wall that may be broken/ leaking/ blocked or a gutter that is overflowing above the area and causing the water to splash back up brickwork above the damp proof course. Regards Andy

Want to paint all the ceilings of my house, and thinking of doing it in Leyland SUPER LEYTEX MATT PAINT BRILLIANT WHITE. Is it good ?

  • Andrew Smith's Answer
    Mon 11 Dec 2017 21:6pm

    Hi, I find the leytex leaves roller marks , especially if you have to go back over it, try Dulux Supermatt or vinyl Matt whichever is cheaper. I have been using Wickes Trade contract matt without any problems and a good price as well. Any of these should be good.
