I was looking for a painter/decorator for a repaint job. After calling around several traders, I decided to go with Mark for three main reasons: 1) He came to the property himself to directly assess what work was required, took exact measurements and discussed with me the different types of paint and other solvents needed for the best result. He answered all my questions in detail, which I appreciated a lot. 2) He was able to guarantee the completion of the job within a short deadline, which incidentally included starting on a weekend at 8am to finish by mid week afternoon. 3) The quote provided had clear work details, breakdown of the costs and was competitively priced. Not only did he finish the job earlier than expected, he was always unfailingly courteous and friendly. The result of his work was extremely clean and professional too - in fact, he left the property cleaner than it was originally! Additionally, on receiving the final invoice, it totalled slightly cheaper as the materials costed a little less than expected. I highly recommend Mark, not only for the quality of his work and flexibility to fit to your schedule, but also for his honesty and amazing work ethic. I will certainly be returning to him for other future jobs!
