Painter and decorator

Unfortunately, due to one of the tradesmen not turning up, and the person who assessed the job having to go away to visit relatives in England, the completed job wasn't as good as had been expected.

Plasterer / Renderer

Very professional and helpful. The joiner was especially obliging and very skilled in his work. The pricing was especially competitive as I am some distance from Edinburgh. I'll happily use this company again and can recommend to anyone no matter how small or large the work needed.

From start to finish this company were great. Gary turned up when he said he would and we received the quotation the next day as promised. Gary kept us updated regarding when they would be coming to carry out the work - which was to decorate 2 bedrooms. They came when promised, really good job done and at a good price. As a bonus, they were very tidy too! I am keeping a note of this companies contact details as I would definitely use them in the future and have no hesitation in recommending.

The work was completed very quickly and efficiently with the minimum of disruption and various additional repairs/repainting which we had not specifically identified at commencement were carried out as a matter of course and at no additional cost. I would definitely recommend Gary and his company.

Gary and his team were excellent from start to finish. A prompt visit where the work was explained, and we got a very reasonable quote. The team turned up when they said they would, did a great job and left everything very tidy - highly recommended.

I can highly recommend Gary and his team. Fantastic service and workmanship. Will definitely use again. Everything went smoothly from start to finish. Gary went out his way to help us source supplies which was appreciated.

Gary got in touch quickly after my post on this site, popped round soon after to give me a quote. He was able to do the work in the time-frame i was looking for and the decorating is to a high standard. Very friendly / courteous team and a great service. Gary kept in touch before, during and after the job with updates. I'd highly recommend and would use again.
