Bob did exactly what was agreed and we are very happy with the two dormer windows. Access to the windows wasn’t good but this didn’t seem to present a problem for Bob. The paint job is excellent. We found him to be reliable and friendly and would certainly recommend him.

Very happy with Robert’s work. He was a wee bit late for our initial meeting but otherwise excellent.

Robert was excellent, hard working and very obliging. Every extra little task we added was cheerfully accepted. The work was first class and we were delighted with the completed job both inside and out. Les & June. Scottish Borders

Robert painted my outside windows recently and done an excellent job. From start to finish he was helpful and accommodating, nothing was to much trouble. He fitted in with my schedule and was really flexible with times etc. The quality of his work is 1st class and he is the best painter/decorator I have ever used. His prices are excellent and I would not hesitate to use him again, highly recommended.

Robert is a real find. He rearranged his schedule to fit in my project, turned up when he said he would and did a very professional job. He is a tidy worker and cleaned up as he went along. I was happy to trust him with my keys. Highly recommended.

Cannot recommend RE Decorating as never turned up! Chose this company due to the other good reviews on the Rated People website. BUT, after giving us assurances during the 2 weeks running up to the external work on our property, Robert badly let us down even when he knew that part of the work had a deadline to fit in with other works on the property. On the day he was supposed to arrive, he called to say that two of his men hadnâ??t turned up but that he would be round in the afternoon. No-one turned up that day and, despite left messages, we received no further contact from Robert to explain his non appearance. This resulted in myself (at 39 weeks pregnant) and my partner having to spend our Sunday scraping down the exterior walls and painting them ourselves to allow garden works, that had been scheduled, to proceed. Not impressed and find this approach very unprofessional. Even a phone call to say there was a problem would have been appreciated. We have now given the job to Perfect House Decorating who turned up when they said they would and have been very helpful and courteous.

I was very impressed with the service from [COMPANY_NAME]. They did an excellent job, turned up on time, kept me regularly informed with progress and were very tidy. They were also excellent value for money and I would have no hesitation using them again or recommending to anyone.
