About

I have over 30 years of experience across a wide range of projects. I am based in Loughton, Essex, and much of my work is from regular clients, word of mouth and Which Local recommendations. Over the years, many projects have taken me further afield, including London, Suffolk, and Berkshire.

My key areas of expertise are painting and decorating, including wallpapering.

I enjoy the process of discussing and agreeing the best products and finishes to use, in order to achieve results that my clients will be delighted with.

We recommend Steve very highly indeed. He fitted us in when we needed to get work done by a particular date, and then was very understanding and accommodating when we needed to delay his planned start date. He and Vic did an excellent job in both the preparation (they were very thorough) and in the wall-papering & painting, taking great pains to get everything just right. We are delighted by the results. There was quite a lot to do, but everything was done on schedule and within the price estimate. Steve and Vic were also a pleasure to have in the house, making the whole process very smooth. We have asked them to carry out further work for us.

Steve was recommended by Which trusted I read the reviews and I have to say he has surpassed my expectations. We met over a year ago when he quoted me for painting the outside of my house. He was straightforward with his quote without adding any extras He has completed the work to an extremely high standard within the time he specified so much so that I have asked him for further painting work which he will hopefully fit into his busy schedule. He arrives promptly and cleans up after himself I can not praise him enough. He has been approachable and knowledgeable. A true professional thank you Steve and I hope to see you soon.

Steve and Vic decorated the whole of the interior of my house, which hadn't been painted in a number of years. One of the bedrooms needed stripping right back and making good, they transformed it! On his first visit Steve discussed with me what needed doing and provided a reasonable quote quickly, although I had to wait a bit for him to be able to do the job, once it was started he and Vic completed the work in under 2 weeks. They always arrived on time and worked hard right through; they were friendly, polite, trustworthy and worked around us living in the house. They are very professional and the standard of their work is high; my house is so much brighter, they will be returning to paint the outside of the house and I have every confidence they'll do a good job on that too. I have absolutely no hesitation recommending Steve and Vic to others looking to redecorate their home. Thanks Steve and Vic 👍

Steve was recommended by a friend, and when I contacted him he was pleasant and friendly from the start. When he quoted me the price for work I wished to be carried out, he was straightforward and I knew he would be reliable. His timekeeping was excellent and he spent four days, stripping my old wallpaper, painting the woodwork twice, and finally putting up my new wallpaper in a patient and professional manner. He worked extremely hard and I was delighted with the result. In fact, I have asked him to quote me for decorating another room, and am willing to wait as I know how busy he is. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

This was the second time Steve had done painting and decorating for us; he is very reliable - came and quoted promptly and fitted us in quickly. Steve and Vic prepared thoroughly, were happy to discuss what I wanted and were both really pleasant, friendly, very efficient and trustworthy.

They're a very pleasant person to deal with and the process of assessing and discussing the work was not rushed at all. I have a number of surfaces (including a resin floor, kitchen units and some furniture) that I was worried about protecting and I was very pleased at the care that was taken in the preparation work to ensure their safety. This professionalism continued into the preparation of the walls and the actual painting and I'm really very pleased with the final finish. Overall highly recommended!

They wallpapered my large hall and landing. He is a friendly genuine person and his quality of work, attention to detail and timekeeping was excellent. He went out of his way to ensure that I was happy with the work at every stage and was happy to answer any of my questions and explain things in detail. The finished product is excellent and was carried at a very reasonable price (he charged for consumables at cost providing the receipts). I will certainly use him again for any future projects and would recommend him to anyone without any reservations whatsoever.

This is the second time that we have used Steve. Steve gave us a very reasonable quote for painting our main bedroom and lounge, touching up the paintwork in our second bedroom and hallway, and painting all woodwork in the hallway. Steve and Vick are helpful, thorough and considerate and we are very happy with the end result of their work - the rooms are looking great and all work was completed on time. We would recommend them and have booked them in to paint our kitchen next.

We are really delighted with the work carried out for us by Steve. Steve produced a very competitive quotation for the preparation and decoration of two large bedrooms, the hall, stairs and first floor landing. He was friendly and professional throughout, arriving on time every morning. He gave good advice on colour schemes and how to match materials to get the effect we wanted. All the work areas were effectively protected while the work was carried out. A great deal of care and attention went into preparation of the surfaces, including dealing with water damage and areas of damp. The house was always left clean and tidy with all materials cleared away and stored securely at the end of each day's painting. Steve has been most accommodating, fitting in with our requirements. He was flexible in our last minute requests to make alterations to the planned works and to complete additional work not originally quoted for. Nothing was too much trouble. All of the work was completed on time and to a very high standard. We are delighted with the end result and would happily recommend Steve to our friends and family and will use him again when we require further decoration services.

Just wanted the exterior woodwork spruced up on my house. Steve was on time and worked hard. Actually done more than he had quoted for to create a better overall appearance. Rain upset his plans but he returned on the Saturday to finish the job.
