We’ve just had the outside of our house including external render repainted by Gary. The work has been carried out to a very high standard with attention to detail and we are extremely pleased with the result. We would not hesitate to have him do more work for us and would highly recommend him. Heather and Vernon Cotton, Ambleside

“Gary has done a great job of decorating our house, both inside and out. He has been helpful at every stage, giving us suggestions for a company who might provide scaffolding at a reasonable cost, and pointing us in the right direction as to what materials would be good quality and helping us source them. He works cleanly and quickly, but without compromising on quality. Very highly recommended indeed!”

Gary has done a lot of decorating for us over the years, both painting and papering, both of which he does with immaculate care and a keen eye to detail. He is a very clean worker as well, he painted our bedroom after we’d just had a new carpet fitted (bad planning on our part), but he completely covered the new carpet with very clean sheets, and it was absolutely as good as new afterwards. Most new people who come to our house comment on the wallpaper in our hall (a lovely Morris and Co one), and they very often ask for the number of our decorator.

“Gary was recommended to us 10 years ago when we first moved to the Lake District. Since then we have used his services for all our decorating requirements – we wouldn’t use anyone else. He really knows his products, carries out his work with massive attention to detail and does it all with great good nature. It’s a pleasure to have him around our home!”

“Gary has been decorating our new home for some months. We are very pleased with the standard of his work. He is an extremely skilled and very experienced decorator. He advised us along the way and suggested products for different rooms and surfaces, which look good and will be more durable over time than standard paints and oils. He worked cooperatively and well with the other trades and has been flexible and adaptable throughout. He is an easy person to have in the house and I am very pleased to recommend him.”
