The fact I waited four months on the waiting list for quite a big job speaks volumes. It was well worth the wait. All the way from the initial quotation to the visit, Rob was professional and responsive. We have a large open plan living, dining and kitchen with high ceilings. The work required was a stain block to seal the nicotine and stains we inherited when we moved in, followed by two coats on all walls, ceilings and woodwork. The wall required repair in places, the attention to detail in preparation was next to none. The woodwork was properly sanded and caulked as required. They were clean and ensured everything was masked and dust-sheets throughout. They arrived on time throughout and ensured they checked our requirements throughout the job. They took me deciding that a couple of feature walls in a different colour just before they started on the first day all in their stride. They used professional paint and ensured they got a colour match to our requirements. I imagine they are not the cheapest available but it really is a case of you get what you pay for. The finish is immaculate and all down to the extensive preparation before painting and the care and attention throughout. I am now back on their waiting list for another job next year and cannot recommend highly enough.

Work that was done many years ago still looks good today and recent work included great attention to detail to resolve a problem of mould to find a solution for the long term. Gets work done efficiently with minimum disruption. Highly recommended.

Rob re-decorated our living room, painting walls, ceiling and woodwork, and made some repairs to the wallpaper before painting it. We are delighted with the finished result, it looks superb; the work was done efficiently, finished within the time predicted and there was no mess for us to clear up. His price was very competitive, and we would happily recommend him to anybody. We are so pleased that we have asked for a quote for decorating the outside of our house.

We used Which Trusted Traders to select Read Decorators to carry out full external paint work including minor repairs to door frames and plaster work. We were not disappointed in this choice. Read Decorators lived up to the reputation that Trusted Traders expects. The work was done to a very high standard; the finish is excellent and the repairs were well done. The residues were removed and everything was left in a tidy state. Importantly, the final invoice matched the (much) earlier estimate exactly. As a result of this work we now intend to commission Read Decorators for the larger internal decoration that is probably overdue. No hesitation at all in recommending Mr Read. Top marks.

I have used Rob and his team for over 12 years during which time they have painted both the exterior and interior of my house. Each time the work has been carried out to the highest standard, completed on time and at a fair price. I have recommended his services to several friends who have also been very pleased with his work.
