Fantastic team, very professional throughout, really happy with the results

Emily, Emma and Penny were very professional from conducting the first quote to the final paint touches. They were always on-time and wore masks and proactively looked to all the wall surfaces and edges smoother, filling in all holes and cracks. They spotted things I hadn't even noticed and make them better, especially a big dent at the bottom of our bannister which they made perfect again. They were extremely organised throughout with a plan for when they aimed to move between rooms so that we could organise furniture in advance. We asked them to match the colours in our flat and we thought it would be difficult as the previous owners used an Italian paint that cannot be purchased in the UK but Emily and team found perfect matching paints and even procured samples first to make sure we were happy. As the flat came to life again, we made one or two tweaks from the original plan, deciding to paint the inside of some cupboards last minute and adding one new paint colour and Emily was always very accommodating. One of the rooms required removing the old wall paper and I am very impressed with the finish. All in all, lovely professional team with high standards and very communicative throughout. Thank you for giving us a new flat and something to be very positive about this year.

Emily and her team re-decorated four rooms in our flat. They did an excellent job at every stage. They were prompt, well prepared and organised and gave us great advice for the redecoration. The paintwork in each room is excellent and they were very tidy and clean. We highly recommend English, Barrett & Gray!

Emily and her team decorated my front room and hallway. The hallway was a big job - taking it from fresh plaster. Both jobs were done to a high standard. The team were polite, on time and incredibly tidy. They are true professionals. Will definitely have them back at some point in future.

We have used English, Barrett & Gray for painting work on numerous occasions. Every time they've been charming, helpful, punctual, professional, efficient, and most importantly of all, produced work of the highest standard. Emily, Emma and the rest of the team are top professionals. They care about the results, they care about quality, they care about process, and they care about the client. At all times we have felt listened to and supported, and the room they have just completed has been transformed from tired and shabby to glowing and beautiful in mere days. I cannot praise Emily and her colleagues more highly, and have no intention of using anybody else.

Everything went very smoothly in the complete redecoration of our small flat, from our first meeting with Emily to obtain a quote to the end of the job, which came in on time and on budget. We let Penny and her team in on Monday morning and then left them to it. We had complete confidence in leaving them with our keys. Emily kept in touch during the work, pointing out a problem with one ceiling but then having a "can-do" attitude to sorting it out. We couldn't recommend this team of pleasant and skilful women more highly.

Five people turned up on day 1 to start preparing and painting a hall and landings, kitchen and bathroom. Starting with Emily's visit and estimate, I was impressed by the professionalism and organisation of the team. Considerate, friendly and very skilled was my impression. A beautiful job done to a high standard..even extractor fans falling off walls unexpectedly did nothing to phase them! Regular updates regarding progress followed and I was kept well-informed about the details of the job. This team comes highly recommended and I was not disappointed.

We left Emily with our keys, went away, and expected every room of our flat to be repainted and perfect on our return. We were not disappointed. Emily and her colleagues are highly reliable and highly skilled. Their work is to the highest standard. You can confidently put yourselves in their hands.

Emily and her team redecorated nearly the entire interior of our house and were very adaptive and flexible - even when I changed my choice of paint at the last minute. They worked around a full house of people and were very accommodating. The work was done to an incredibly high standard and Emily and the rest of the team were very communicative throughout the entire process - we knew when they were planning to finish one room and start on the next. The work was completed within budget and Emily was happy to do a few extra things for us when we asked. Most notably, the team was lovely to have around the house. It's not always the most pleasant thing to share your house with other people for several weeks but they were fantastic to have in the house - cheerful, friendly, punctual and respectful. They also took care every evening to ensure that the house was swept and hoovered. I can't recommend this team enough - fantastic decorators and lovely to have around. They book far in advance but are absolutely worth the wait.

The team of four redecorated the exterior, front and back, of the house. We had a ten month wait for them but it was 100% worth it. They were punctual, well-organised and friendly, and worked quietly and cheerfully to a very high standard. They stayed within the budget, kept us informed of developments, cleaned up as they went along and left the site spotless. We would recommend them unreservedly.

Emily, Emma, Penny and the team did a terrific job decorating the outside of my rather neglected Victorian terrace. They stuck to their time estimate and budget, kept me fully informed of developments and work throughout. They turned up on time, tidied up after themselves and were a joy to have around. Most of all they did an excellent job. I would highly recommend.
