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.

After visiting, Steve (who appeared knowledgable and well experienced) provided a reasonable estimate. On the agreed date Steve and his co-worker Vic meticulously prepared and repainted the wooden conservatories and its masonry. Throughout they were courteous, friendly, helpful and on time, working through a full day, tidying up after themselves as they went along. The work was completed to time, to a high standard and within the estimate. I am happy to recommend Steve for any decorating work and in fact have asked him to redecorate another area for me in the near future.

Great Job!

Steve had popped round previously and we discussed the job which was to have the outside of the house painted. He explained which materials he would be using and why. On day one and throughout the job Steve arrived promptly at 7.30 every day with his co-worker Vic and they got going immediately! They are very hard (and cheerful) workers and a pleasure to have around, very helpful in explaining different situations and with liaising with my carpenter who needed to replace some fascia boards. They were clean and tidy in their work and in the evening all paint/tools etc were put away neatly. The work was completed a week earlier than scheduled and to budget. I am absolutely delighted with the job and would employ Steve again for any other decorating work I need done in the future.

Steve did an excellent job decorating the main bedroom, after stripping the walls ,which was quite a job, he lined the walls and painted them plus the woodwork . He worked through on the hottest day of the year which was no mean feat. Steve is very easy to deal with and very helpful and professional and is coming back for further work in the near future. We would recommend Steve without hesitation.

Steve came over with his co-worker to refinish some external wooden window frames and doors. We were very pleased with the work, the wood was stripped back to bare state as agreed (quite a job for one of the doors which had layers of old varnish and wood stain), prepared, and finished with a base wood stain, and two-three layers of durable wood varnish over the next couple of days. The result is a great high quality finish, which reflects the care put into the work. The working area was also tidied each day. Steve and partner were friendly and put my elderly mother at ease as well, which was much appreciated. Definitely recommended.

Used Steve's services several years ago - large exterior wall. Commissioned him this year to paint new long external fencing (back garden); new shed: front fencing (small front garden); front door. Good preparation on one day in the week before meant the work was done efficiently within a week. He was also helpful in giving advice on paints to use. Site was left tidy and clean Was very satisfied and have commissioned him further to undertake the decoration of my study.

Repainting Kitchen Cabinets

We asked Steve to repaint our handmade kitchen cabinets. They hadn't been painted for some time as we were worried about the quality of finish that could be achieved by hand. Despite being very busy, Steve managed to quote promptly for the work and we were struck by his knowledge and professional approach. He set a date with us to carry out the work and completed the work on time and on budget. The results are fantastic! He took such care with every detail of the job and the finish is perfect and not a brush mark in site. He was also very tidy and respectful of our home. In addition to his skill as a painter, Steve is a lovely person and we would not hesitate to have him in our home again.

Steve re-painted the walls and woodwork in my loft room. This work was completed within agreed timescales and at the price quoted in the estimate. I was impressed by the high standard of Steve's work and his attention to detail. His preparation was thorough and the work was undertaken with care and in a very logical order, leading to a great finish. Steve applied a number of coats to all surfaces, in some cases doing more than had been agreed to get the right result; he also took a pragmatic approach to help resolve an unforeseen issue with a leaking window frame. Steve is clearly someone you can trust to be in your home and I had no hesitation in leaving him to get on with this job at times when I was out. Steve probably isn't the cheapest decorator you will find, but if you are looking for someone who you can completely trust to do a very professional job and, overall, who offers good value, you have no need to look any further.

Steve did a wonderful job in rescuing my bathroom from an attack of black mould and brightening up my dismal peeling kitchen! He treated and painted both rooms beautifully and has really made both bathroom and kitchen look bright and inviting. The transformation is a miracle! Delighted with the results.

Our bedroom was a real challenge for decorating. Not only wonky walls, as is typical in many Victorian houses, but with a repaired damp patch under a window and around the chimney, and a burn from a fire in the roof! Steve was quick and efficient at waving his magic paintbrush, and the room looks lovely. We enjoyed his company while he was here. We will be using his services again and we do recommend him.
