Testimonials






Adrian was everything you hope for in a tradesman. He was happy to give a no obligation quote, and he turned up at the appointed time to look at the work I needed doing - I know this seems simple, but you wouldn’t believe the trouble I’ve had getting people to come along to give quotes!
His quote was very reasonable, so I booked him to carry out the work. A week or so before the date we’d agreed, he and Hazel emailed asking me to give details of the exact paint colours I required. He started work on the day we’d arranged and worked solidly, despite the blistering heat, for 3 days. He started work at 8am, finished at 5pm and left the area clean and tidy each day. The work was done to an excellent standard, and was finished slightly ahead of schedule. I was happy with the price, too!
Adrian was organised, polite, friendly and professional at all times - a really nice bloke. I am very happy to recommend Adrian to anyone who needs a painter & decorator, and will definitely ask him back to do work in the future. I’m so pleased with the end result - my house looks loved again!

Claire, Southend

I am so pleased I found Adrian to paint the apex and masonry around my prized period window frames. He is prompt, courteous, meticulous and extremely tidy. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his services. An absolutely superb job and amazing value for money!

Emma, Southend

Adrian turns up on the dot and works steadily all day. No mess, very pleased with the finish and would recommend him to anyone.

Jan and Brian, Great Wakering

We have used Adrian on several occasions as we are repainting the interior of our house and each time he has done a really excellent job with no fuss. His work is of a very high standard and he has always worked conscientiously and professionally. We will be continuing to use him to decorate the rest of our home and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

Mr and Mrs Greasley, Southend

I would thoroughly recommend Adrian. He always turned up on time, carried out his work without any mess, produced a professional result and best of all in my book, didn't expect to spend hours chatting over endless cups of tea (although he isn't averse to a cup every now and then) like some tradesmen I've had!

Mr Bell, Barling Magna

I found Adrian after visiting his website. I had lost my longtime decorator and I was looking for someone else. As always with someone new I was apprehensive but I need not have worried. Adrian did a first class job. He was very efficient and very methodical. He has now decorated most of the interior of the house plus my garden furniture. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian.

Mrs N from Thorpe Bay

We were very pleased with the wallpapering Adrian did for us, we were a little apprehensive as we had not seen any of his work, we did not know he had a web site, but we were pleasantly surprised with his excellent finished job, and would definitely recommend him to anyone.

A happy customer, Rochford

Adrian recently decorated my living room, the result being so good that I have booked him again to come and transform my hall and stairs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adrian, as the service he gives is totally professional, but more importantly he does a fantastic job.

Mrs R. Great Wakering

We had two rooms decorated by Adrian and we were pleased with the result and will use him again when we need another room decorated.

Mr & Mrs H, Thorpe Bay

Excellent job at an equally-excellent price! Adrian transformed our bedroom in one day - wallpapering the whole room. The end result was much better than we had originally hoped for and we will not hesitate in using his services again - we'll also be recommending him to friends and family!!

Mr & Mrs T, Southchurch

Thank you Adrian for the excellent job you did last year renovating and decorating our lounge, it is now a bright, warm, cosy and tranquil haven for the family to relax in.

The Stone family, Prittlewell, Southend on Sea, Essex

Adrian has done several decorating jobs for me, interior and exterior. They have all been done to a very high standard. The service he provides I would highly recommend.

Mrs Duffen, Hawkwell

We have known Adrian and his Father for many years and always had them to do our decorating as we would not consider having anyone else. Excellent work, clean, tidy and trustworthy, especially the new kitchen you fitted out for us.

Mr. & Mrs. Millbank, Great Wakering

Adrian recoated our hardwood windows with Sadolin giving the outside of the house a real lift. He worked efficiently and tidily always turning up when he said he would and completing the job in the time he had estimated. We would certainly recommend him and hope he will do more work for us in the future.

Mr. and Mrs. H, Southend

For many years now, Adrian and his father have been the sole decorators on our house - in fact they have decorated (and in some cases renovated) every room and maintained & painted the exterior. The standard of work has always been excellent. Adrian is a trustworthy and conscientious individual who takes pride in his work with the objective of customer 'delight' not just 'satisfaction'. We will most certainly continue to engage Adrian for any future maintenance needed on our home.
