Painting of the walls, ceilings and woodwork in kitchen, lounge and hallways (upstairs and downstairs including staircase)

We were extremely pleased with the friendly, professional service we received from Robert.  He was very accommodating when I asked him to re-do the hallway when I changed my mind about the colour.  We fully expected to pay for our mistake, but we actually ended up being charged less than the original quote!

Very tidy and professional work.  This is the second time we have asked Robert to do a job for us, the last time he did the whole house and this time obliged us for one room.

23/11/2013 not given on form Painting kitchen - ceiling, walls and feature wall. I highly recommend Robert as a painter and decorator.  He is a perfectionist taking absolute pride in the work he does.  Robert is professional, reliable, trustworthy and of course and excellent painter.  The work was completed to a very high standard with everything put back in place and left tidy.

28/10/2013 £1,050 Robert painted the whole of my dad's house, large kitchen and living room, hall, 2 bedrooms and bathroom, he even painted the inside of cupboards.  My dad has dementia and Robert was wonderful with him and working around him.  He did the job in just over a week.  Tremendous.

no date on form £14 per hour Strip ceiling and walls in master bedroom.  Then prime undercoat, then 2 coats of emulsion on ceiling, cornice and walls.  Painted door, skirtings, windows and fitted wardrobes. Cannot express my delight in every aspect of Mr Brown's work.  Tidy, obliging, hard working and professional.  I would not have anyone else for my next project.

Full outside facia - including guttering, pipes and woodwork.  Inside - hall papered, painted, woodwork painted.

What a fantastic job!  Robert is very professional.  This is a busy family home and he fitted around our madness!  We will definitely be using R & B Decorators again and would have no problems recommending them.  Thank you.
