A large job done to a meticulously high standard, even if it took a little longer than envisaged. The team had skills to do a variety of related works. Not the cheapest but you pay for what you get. Overall extremely pleased and would definitely use again

Andrei, who speaks little or no English, worked on it throughout and did a great job, with specialists doing plumbing and electrics. But it all took much longer than we (or I think Ted) expected. The invoiced amount was 25% more than the estimate which we were not told about at the time. In the end it felt rushed. We were left to clear up paint and marks on the new wood floor and skirting board. Communication was difficult - unexpected absences. More care could have been taken to protect our floor.

Responded to my detailed advert late in the evening to make an appointment to quote. Despite our very obvious request for costs to be below £1000 for the project, they informed us they charge £500 per room and then they cancelled the appointment, They would do well to read listings before responding to them and wasting people's time. I never got to see their quality of work, hence three stars. I'm sure they're very good but I'm very let down by their communication.

Ted is an impressive and professional guy able to offer good advice and point you in the right direction when it comes to materials etc. Though we originally engaged Ted and his team for a painting service, for the whole house, we ended up using him for a new floor downstairs. The quality of work was excellent, our only niggle was that works overran by a day or so. We have other worked planned in the next few months and will be instructing him to undertake this too.

The standard of work is good and they cleaned up after each day of work. There was an additional charge for the ceiling in the hallway, which we didn’t expect but did agree to after the work upstairs had begun. The workman turned up every day as expected. They were polite and very helpful.

Ted is one of the most reliable person I have ever worked with. His team painted and tiled our two new build 5 bedrooms houses near Thatcham and both Houses were sold immediately. Everyone was really impressed with the quality. I can definitely recommend him. He won't let you down.

Very efficient - quoted and began work very quickly, which was great as I had been let down by another company and wanted the job completing within a specific timeframe. Very reliable and punctual. Kept the house really clean and tidy throughout the job, paying particular attention to protecting the carpets/flooring throughout. Preparation and painting both excellent and finished to a high standard. Wallpapering also undertaken which wasn’t perfect, but was very close! Overall I’m really pleased.

Redecorating (painting/wallpapering/new door handles/new door hinges) of most of a large family home over 10 days. Very reliable: As promised the team knocked on the door everyday at 08:00, The moment they are through the door they are working all the way through to 18:00. Very comfortable to leave them in my house unsupervised. Very nice results-high quality workmanship. Will definitely use again.

You get what you pay for. From the moment first contact was made with Ted, nothing was too much trouble. Preparation was spot on and I was pleasantly surprised when they covered the working area with a special type of carpet / floor protector.His team are very hard working and kept the working area clean at all times. Very pleasant team, extremely happy with the work carried out and I'll certainly call them back again to do other painting work I have lined up. Well Done Ted and Team.

The bungalow had been cleared, less for light fittings, a large dining table, chairs and cabinet. however all the items were very carefully removed, protected, and restored when the work was complete. It took a week of intense and diligent craftsmanship to paint and decorate to a high standard. It has been a transformation. The bungalow has been left tidy, the rooms immaculate and everyone has been complimentary to the team. Well Done - seems a low response for such excellent work. Rolls-Royce Gold plate!!

I had to find a brand new crew for a renovation job far from home and I've been incredibly impressed by the work done by the Holloway team. IMMACULATE finish on the decorating, good sound practical advice, always reliable, and boy do they work hard! Between them they can turn their hand to anything. And they're happy to recommend other great tradespeople too (carpet fitters, electricians etc). Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for and they're worth every penny. A highly professional bunch.

The quality of the painting was fine, the service and communications weren't.We were led to believe that this would take approx 2 days, it was 4. So we had an unusable living area across a whole weekend. Arrival was often late so we had to leave a key. At end of day we were left with sinks which needed cleaning (from cleaning of brushes)At end, we returned to bags and rubbish stacked outside the house & materials stacked outside door. There were paint marks on wall lights, power outlet covered in tape.

Ted and his team just completed a complete a full decoration of our 5 bedroom house. We are extremely satisfied with the results. They were flexible in their approach as we did change our scope during the project and they were able to accommodate our requests. Would highly recommend.

We have had our house redecorated from top to bottom within 3 weeks. The two men turned up at 8am and finished 6pm. They even offered to come on Sunday but we are all needed a rest. They couldn't have been more courteous & helpful with all the comings and goings with teenagers and a dog. Their work was thorough, tidy and cleared rooms and put everything back. When they were falling behind schedule, due to unforeseen circumstances, they roped in an extra 2 decorators to speed things along. Thanks Ted

This company have just completed a full decoration of our 4 bedroom town house both inside and out. I cannot recommend them enough. They were hard working , punctional and executed the paintwork to the very highest standard. They were very flexible and went above and beyond my expectations. Ted himself was very pleasant and professional to deal with and accepted any additional requests with a no problem attitude. Will most certainly be using them again!
