We have used Roy in the past, so it seemed logical to ask him to decorate our lounge in our new home in Wiltshire. He transformed the room from a dark grubby orange to a lovely crisp and clean cream. He made good the cracked ceilings and nasty yellowing skirting and doors. His work was faultless and was done with humour and professionalism from the off. We couldn't be happier with the job and wouldn't hesitate to recommend or use him again.

No quote provided
Had to follow-up with Roy many times before he came in on 13th April to check the work to be done. After taking notes about the work to be done Roy said he would post me a quote within next couple of days. Nothing arrived so followed up with Roy on 21st April. Received an email reply saying "I posted the quote last weekend. It is not the first one that I have had go astray. I will look it out this evening and email a copy to you and put another in the post for you". Again nothing arrived for two weeks, no email, no post, so called Roy. Roy's words 'I have been enjoying good weather hence have not done your quote yet. I will send it in few days'. More than 2 months now, still no quote received. Why waste someone's time if not interested in doing the work. I would not recommend Roy.

With complete confidence, we can highly recommend Roy Basten and his team. From start to finish, Roy was highly professional both in his approach to appraising the job we required, to carrying it out in an unobtrusive and safe manner. Given the requirements of working during the Pandemic, all rules were observed which was particularly reassuring for my wife and I. The attention to detail in every aspect of the work carried out was impeccable and it was great ( and very much appreciated) that at the end of each day, our house was left clean and tidy. This wasn't the first time we have used Roy and it won't be the last! Excellent all round.

Using Roy to decorate my flat has made my life so much easier, Roy kept in communication throughout the work with regular updates along the way. The quality of the work was excellent and Roy's experience and advice really help me in making the right decision. I would highly recommend Roy to others in the future

decorated a whole landing and stairs in September, has previously done kitchen and bedroom - happy with the work. Worked around me, gave access while away, kept to quarantine restrictions, he was prepared to be flexible. Neighbour has used him previously so that's why we went with him. Knew beforehand the price, paid a small deposit and final payment due when completed. He is very busy.

I recently had exterior wooden windows and doors repaired and repainted by Roy Basten. Roy always does an excellent job, is trustworthy and timely, and is very helpful in finding solutions to unique decorating problems. I would definitely recommend Roy Basten for any decorating needs in the Bracknell area.

Roy painted the outside of our house. He had done the same work for us 10 years ago. We are extremely satisfied with both jobs

In the past we had the hall, landing and stairs redecorated. After that the living-room and dining-room were redecorated. This year, the kitchen and utility-room were redecorated. In all instances the work included skirting boards, door, radiators and ceilings. The return visits speak volumes for Roy?s very professional approach to decorating, his attention to detail and the very high standards that he achieves. Roy doesn?t need to advertise, but if he did then a slogan belonging to an American greeting card company would be appropriate ? If you care enough, then send the best.?

Roy did an excellent job repainting part of our kitchen following rainwater damage. His quotation was very competitive and he did his work on time and finished ahead of schedule. We have used him before and would have no hesitation of using him again.
