Ian gave us good advice and Ben, his painter, completed the job of decorating the bedroom and the tricky job of the inside of the new wardrobe within the timescales they said. They even did a Bathroom window, which was an extra job. We are very pleased with the job they did, they turned up on time everyday and will be using them again to decorate our outside windows.

Ian Day organised the painting of our newly plastered lounge and hallway. Communication was excellent throughout the process. Luke did a great job working 3 days, eight hours a day on the lounge. He was efficient, tidy, courteous and professional. Ian knew we wanted the hallway painted before November and we agreed the job could be done in the evenings as all his team were busy. Paul did a great job on all areas working Saturday and four evenings. He was courteous and mindful of our need to use the stairs, keeping the area safe and ventilated. Great finish on the lime plastered wall. The whole job was competitively priced. We are very pleased with the outcome.

Ian and his team did some great work decorating areas of the church hall, some at high level and in difficult to reach areas.

Outside paint job of house. Ian organised everything very well and great at communicating on a regular basis. Paul's preparation and paintwork is superb. Timekeeping was excellent and we liked the very helpful and pleasant attitude. A pleasure to deal with a well organised, nice outfit that carried out a great job.

We decided to use Ian Day Decorators after a pre quote visit from Ian who took the time to thoroughly discuss our ideas and offer the professional advice we were looking for. Ian kept in touch on a daily basis while the work was ongoing over a period of 18 working days. The work progressed on schedule we were happy with the progress. Work consisted of lounge, dinning room, kitchen, hall stairs and landing. Repaint of walls, ceilings and all woodwork. Changes we made along the way were easily accommodated. Level of finish was very pleasing. Would definitely use again and recommend. Ian and Paul were always polite, friendly and eager to please fussy clients. Nothing was ever to much trouble.

I have just had Ian Day Decorating complete the decoration of three rooms (Living, DIning and Study) over a three week period. I am extremely pleased with the finished result and found Ian and his son Luke very professional, timely and with a great attitude. Luke was a very diligent worker and exceptionally tidy - he worked around me and a houseful of kids during half term! I am happy to recommend Ian and will be using him again for future decorating. Also good value for money.

Guessing the reviews are for quality of work rather than his attitude?
We asked Ian to come over and give us a quote. Ian came across as quite rude, abrupt, argumentative and seemed to get very impatient and frustrated with me as I wasn't completely sure on what colour / wall paper we wanted etc. At times Ian would even ask me if I was doing any of the work. This confused me as he's the decorator not me. I have brain damage, mental health problems and mild Autism so Ian's attitude made me feel quite anxious and uncomfortable in my own home. I know people have bad days but I wouldn't expect a which rated trader to behave like this on a first meet. It was very unnecessary and a bit upsetting.

Hi Rudy very sorry I haven't met your expectations on our meeting I would never intend to cause you any distress in your home .The communication was not very clear from you which caused some confusion for both of us to understand . I wish you all the best for the future & hope your job goes well & you achieve the results you are looking for . Best Regards Ian Day

Ian's son, Luke, painted our lounge, entrance hall, stairs and landing. His work was excellent, he was very tidy and he had a pleasant manner. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other people.

Paul recently painted our living room and made a beautiful job of pale slate walls and inky blue cupboards. His attention to detail is really impressive and they are very keen to get it right, which they did. Half way through I asked if it was possible to repaint a bathroom which had not been done very well. Luke came and repainted beautifully, quickly and efficiently. It has transformed it. Ian Day Decorators will now be my first choice every time.

Ian was very quick to respond to all communication, even dropping in on a Sunday morning with Ray who was completing the work, as they were starting while I was away. I am extremely happy with the work. A good quality finish and great people to work with. I even added my kitchen ceiling to the work, which they were able to get completed in the same time frame. I would highly recommend them to anyone and would definitely use them again. It was a pleasure to work with a company that were professional, friendly and trustworthy.
