He is pleasant to have around, reliable, handworking and totally trustworthy, He is the only person I have left to work on my home when I have stayed away for several days.

It was great to find a decorator who was so friendly, reliable, hardworking, punctual and trustworthy, and who was flexible enough to resolve all the unexpected problems when we lifted the carpet and removed the wall paper. The work was finished to a very high standard and it was an added bonus that the place was left tidy and all the rubbish was removed for me. I will definitely be calling upon you next time I need decorating work done.

We recently employed Pete to redecorate two bathrooms. We found him to be an extremely meticulous craftsman who pays intelligent attention to detail. He achieved an excellent overall finish. He also sorted out all the practicalities of obtaining the materials, including specially mixed paints, without any hitches and completed the job speedily with no mess.

At the risk of tempting him to increase his charges, we also have to say that we found his rates to be most reasonable, We will certainly be using him again.
