What a fantastic job Andy did of my staircase and landing with high ceilings, would have taken me about 5 days and a possible head injury to attempt it. Completed in about 3 hours and was to absolute perfection! Very professional job and manner. Would recommend!

We had Andy redecorate and paint a rented flat. We were very pleased with his work and all done within agreed timescale and budget. Would have no hesitation in using Andy again.

Andy came via a friend's recommendation and he lived up to it - he did a lovely job decorating my living room including stripping, lining and painting all the walls and woodwork - it is completely transformed and I am delighted with the result, but more than that, Andy is a reliable, trustworthy (I left him with keys for my house without concern) and considerate tradesman. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and will definitely be calling on his services again.

Andy carried out work in our hall, walls, ceiling and woodwork and did a wonderful job. We would be more than happy to call him back when we need any other work done and would recommend him to others.
