I am City & Guilds qualified with 35 years of experience in the trade. I have an excellent local reputation and a good 80% of my work comes from referrals and repeat business. I am also fully insured for working on any domestic or light commercial properties or community buildings.
I use the best tools, equipment and products available, such as modern dust extraction equipment when doing preparation work, and only the very best brushes, rollers and paints will satisfy me. Any quality product that makes the job better will be adopted. I pride myself on my values such as reliability, honesty, integrity and respect for you, the customer, and your property – hence my slogan ‘Modern Methods, Traditional Values’, which I take very seriously. I also ensure I leave a work area clean and tidy at the end of each day and leave it immaculate when I have finished the job and I am ready to leave.
I am hard working and efficient which means the job doesn’t drag on for longer than necessary. Except for the rare occasion when it is necessary to do otherwise, I always give a firm quote rather than an estimate that will include materials as well as labour. Estimates are exactly that and do not offer a clear idea of how much the job will cost. I never ask for a deposit and never expect payment until the job is finished to your satisfaction (although on jobs of long duration I will ask for part payment as the job progresses). This is the fairest method for you, the customer. I am quick to respond to enquiries and will always endeavour to get a quote to you within 48 hours. And you’ll be pleased to learn that I am not VAT registered so that’s a 20% saving straight away!
I am a member of the ‘Buy With Confidence’ scheme run by Trading Standards. It means that I have been vetted and approved by them. Any applicants for this scheme have to pass stringent checks, including CRB Disclosure, and are continually monitored. Also, customer feedback is invited and encouraged. All this is for your peace of mind when inviting a stranger into your home or business premises. For further details of this scheme and for validation go to the Buy With Confidence website.
