Gary and Paul have just finished decorating the entire downstairs of our house. The work was carried out to a very high standard and we are extremely pleased with the result. Completion was within the timeframe scheduled and on budget, save for some small additional items requiring attention after the commencement of the work. Easy to have around the house; clean, tidy and thoroughly professional. The best decorating job we’ve ever had done with impressive attention to detail. We will definitely use them for new projects, and have already asked them to quote for two new jobs. Highly recommended.

We’ve used C&B on three occasions for external and internal work. We have been hugely impressed. The standard of work is excellent, starting with meticulous preparation before painting. The end result has been first class every time. Gary and Paul are friendly and polite, they are as unobtrusive as possible and always clear up very thoroughly. Very highly recommended.

Gary and Paul (Chalk and Brown) did an excellent job at a fair price, to a high standard and in an efficient, organised and timely manner. They showed a high level of expertise and skill in both painting and carpentry. They were able to solve unexpected difficulties with skill and resilience. At all times they were tidy, respectful, hard working, professional and friendly. We were delighted with the finished work.

This is the second time we have used Chalk & Brown. They previously painted the inside of our house meticulously and to a high standard. This time they did the same for the outside. They are reliable, they prepare thoroughly, they work hard, and they are good people to have around!

I would recommend this firm of painters.
High-quality work, very good attention to detail, hard-working, on time, quick working, and pleasant to deal with - I would have no hesitation in recommending Chalk & Brown and intend to use them again myself.

Chalk and Brown painted the outside of an 1860s house - woodwork, masonry and refurbished the finish on some external oak doors. The thoroughness, care and attention to detail was exemplary - no short cuts taken. Time keeping and communication was good at all times, and they are very pleasant people indeed to have on site. Highly recommended.

Chalk & Brown undertook the redecorating of the exterior of my house. They arranged the scaffolding so I didn't need to get involved in that which made life easier for me. I was provided with a clear and comprehensive quote at the outset and there was no subsequent variation. There were no extra costs added which was great. They were very reliable and turned up every day until the job was completed. They didn't disappear off at any stage. I had their undivided attention. Both the preparatory work and the actual painting were done in a very thorough and professional manner. The quality of the finished product was excellent. They were considerate and not intrusive in any way. They cleaned up afterwards and left everything as it was before. Definitely top marks on all fronts. Very friendly and straightforward. I will use them again in the future and recommend them to my friends and neighbours.

Top Quality finish

Painted exterior of three storey Victorian house including stone work, guttering, eaves, rear glazed screen and sashes. They arranged for scaffolding. Repairs were undertaken to rotten timber which was quoted before work was undertaken as the repairs were substantial and expensive but a lot cheaper than replacing the gable ends and rotten window cills so well worth it. The finished work made the house look totally refurbished. The two men worked non-stop, only pausing for spells of rain rather than taking days out. They kept an organised and tidy site, cleaning up each day. They were polite, courteous and not at all intrusive while in the house. Altogether an excellent firm who I will use again.

We contracted Chalk & Brown to paint the woodwork - skirting, door frames, door, staircases etc. throughout our house, having had major construction work last year. They were punctual and quick, and completed the job on schedule. Furthermore they made hardly any mess and the paintwork is excellent. They also filled and repaired areas which we weren't expecting, to leave the house looking brilliant. I would recommend them without hesitation.
