Gary recently carried out some work for my parents which included painting ceilings, woodwork and radiators, wallpapering, re-boxing in some pipes and putting together several chest of drawers. All of the work was carried out to a high standard. Gary was punctual, polite and didn't leave any mess. My parents were very impressed with both his workmanship and general pleasantness. I had complete confidence that I was leaving them with a workman who could be trusted rather than a dishonest one that you hear about so often on these TV programmes. I have already recommended Gary to several friends needing work done.

Gary carried the following- Preparation and waxing of 9 internal and 1 external door Creation and screening of pipes and installation of storage in cloakroom Decorating 4 rooms and hall, stairs and landings Painting external wood and masonry
All the above work was carried out to a very high standard. Gary is conscientious, diligent and an excellent time keeper.He met all of the objectives discussed in record time. The added bonus is that I was able to leave Gary with house keys to let himself in and out and I did not have to take time off work. I have already recommended Gary to 3 friends and a relative

Gary wallpapered & painted our hallway to a very satisfactory standard. His attention to detail was exceptional. Visitors to our house invariably comment on how much they like the decor of the hall. We would not hesitate to recommend Gary's workmanship. Gary is a very pleasant person to deal with, courteous & tidied up thoroughly to complete the job.

Gary painted all the fascia's of my house as well as the two door steps, and window sills. The cost of the materials and paint for the job was really good. He even went out of his way to put a new piece of wood at the top of my bathroom window, measured and cut to size. It only took two days for all the work to be done to a high standard.

We have had Gary to do both our hall, stairs and landing and all of the interior woodwork, (which was a lot!). Each time he has provided a great service and he has proved himself to be a meticulous painter and decorator with a great eye for detail. Gary has worked exceptionally tidily each time and we have been hard pushed to spot any evidence of him ever being here! We would happily recommend Gary to any of our friends and have already booked him for our living room and dining room! Thanks Gary

It is a joy to experience a very flexible and helpful person in their job. Gary was more than prepared to work around my limited times in which the work could be completed and was helpful and efficient when doing so.
