James agreed to do decorating on my 1 bedroom property at short notice and did an excellent job. James and Phil went through on what was needed and advised what was best within my budget. They were polite, professional and did the job on time. Highly recommend them. In fact I have got them to work on my son's house this week.

James and Gary recently undertook a total paint renovation of my ground floor basement flat. They were courteous, professional and worked quickly through the project. The end result is absolutely superb. They also communicated clearly with me throughout and really made the whole process seamless. I heartily recommend them and hope to use them again on future projects.

A little more expensive than some of the other quotes, they got the job completed quickly, were extremely clean and the work looked fantastic. So a little more than we had wanted to pay, but superb work and a great team.

I highly recommend Abilitex, James was quick to respond, providing a fully itemised quote at a fair price and he communicated efficiently throughout. They were very punctual and tidy and completed the decorating quickly and to a very high standard. I hope to use them again soon.

James was very professional, clean and tidy and did a great paint job on walls, ceiling and woodwork - woodwork was an especially good finish. Would certainly recommend.

Abilitex were professional right from the start - from producing the quote to finishing the job. James and his team decorated two bedrooms and my hallway (upstairs landing through to downstairs including all woodwork). They were friendly, punctual, reliable, trustworthy and extremely tidy. James communicated with me at all times and was very patient with my last minute changes. Abilitex delivered quality work and I am delighted with the finished product. I will definitely use Abilitex in the future.

James and his team arrived promptly at 8am every morning. They arrived with their own cleaning equipment and left the place clean and tidy at the end of each day. James and his team decorated 4 bedrooms; the bathroom and did some work in the hallway. I was impressed by the quality of their work, organisation and teamwork. It was very reassuring to have them working on my home. I would definitely use them again. I would also use Rated People again!

In a new house & want to paint inside walls.What prep is needed please

    Ok so you will need to check the condition of the walls firstly. Scrap out any loose and flakey paint throughout each room (fill if necessary), then sand the walls using P120 and either by hand or with sander. At this stage hoover entire room and then sugar soap all walls thoroughly and allow to dry. Finally wash walls off with clean water. Once dry apply two coats or emulsion.
