With an extremely busy work life i'm often away on business and required someone who would not only complete a professional job but who I could also trust implicitly. Alex met this requirement and then some. Not only did he complete the entire redecoration of my flat to a very high standard he also suggested some new ideas and applied 'otto cento' to several feature walls- I was thrilled with the end result. I would recommend Alex to anyone who is considering having any painting and decorating done.
This was the first time we used Al to paint our kitchen and bathrooms and we were very pleased with the high standard of work. We were away when the work was completed and the paint that I had chosen turned out to be incorrect for the job but Al sorted it out without any fuss. He was very reliable and worked around our tight schedule incredibly well (as we had other work going on at the same time). We woud definitely recommend him to friends and family.
Alex recently painted a number of rooms in a flat that I rent out to tenants. I found him very helpful and professional and he recommended the best paints to use (to give a longer lasting finish) and how the job could be completed with minimum interference to tenants. I was really pleased with how professionally the work was carried out- the flat was clean each night and after the job- but most of all i was pleasantly surprised by how passionate Alex was with the quality of finish- the end result was great.
Alex completed the entire decoration of my flat to a very high standard and helped me pick various colours for different rooms. I am really pleased with each room. In particular I had fitted wardrobes made for the bedrooms which he painted white- they looked like they were sprayed but he painted them in situ with a roller and i am amazed at the finish. Very good tradesman and happy to recommend him.
Al completely redecorated our hallway, stripping the existing wallpaper and painting walls and woodwork throughout. He did a fantastic job and ensured that both the walls and woodwork were thoroughly prepared before using a 'durable' paint that he recommended especially for high traffic areas. When stripping part of the hall wall he pointed out a weakness in the existing plaster and gave us the choice of whether to proceed as per quote or get the area replastered. On his advice we decided to replaster, which he organised and the additional cost and disruption was minimal. On completion of each day the house was left clean and tidy. Al clearly takes pride in his work and that is reflected in the end result. I woud definitely recommend Al to anybody and will use him again for any future decorating that needs doing.
