I first started GJW Painting & Decorating in 2004.

Now in my second decade providing painting and decorating services, I’m really proud to say that many of my customers have been with me for several years. Their opinion is the best test of my work and I’m always happy when a good stretch of time passes before they need me again, because I complete work that lasts.

Much of my business over the years has come from word of mouth recommendations. As a tradesperson, my business has been built on my reputation. I hope that gives you confidence both in the quality of my work and in the way that I’ll conduct myself in your home.

Every job starts with me listening to you. I’ll come and see what you would like doing and I’ll share my product knowledge with you. Different rooms and surfaces, different period details, and different tastes deserve a professional and considered approach. It’s important to consider room use and how durable a finish needs to be, the way the weather can affect an exterior finish, what work is needed to prepare for the job, and your preference for environmentally-friendly paints and materials.

I have practical experience on hundreds of local projects. That helps me to produce a detailed and fair estimate, and to avoid surprises once work starts. You also have the assurance that comes with my personal and public liability insurance, which covers each and every job.

Over the years, I have built up excellent supplier relationships. That means you can choose from quality products by British and Scandinavian brands, including Dulux trade, Johnstone’s, Leyland, the Paint and Paper Library, Farrow & Ball, Sanderson’s, and Tikkurilla.

Subcontracting or organising complimentary trades is another element of the service I deliver. For projects that require complimentary skills, I can bring in trusted tradespeople to help complete the job. From scaffolding and cherry pickers to joiners and plasterers, they will work to the same high standards you can expect from me. If you have your own tradespeople working on a project, you’ll find me flexible and professional as I fit in with the project plan.
