Above and beyond
Customer Service
These guys were just what we needed. We bought the house last year and the spare bedrooms needed decorating. We had a feature wall of Laura Ashley wallpaper, with all other walls painted in Farrow & Ball colours. They recommended doing all the ceilings and woodwork which was something we wouldn’t have considered but created a much better final effect. The quote was adhered to. They worked cleanly, were respectful, professional and left a flawless job. Sadly on the last night we were broken into. At such a scary time I couldn’t have been more grateful for these guys. They went above and beyond to fit a lock on the kitchen internal door so that I would feel safe. We will use them again for the rest of the house. Thanks so much.

The end of looking for painter/decorators - for ever.
Customer Service
Splash of Colour redecorated our Victorian-era house over 3 weeks. That included a couple of preliminary visits, a competitive quote and great communication throughout. The job required a huge amount of prep work. A few days were lost due to unpredictable equipment failure. To make up time, the team started early, stayed on late and got more men on the job. Shaun is very much someone who invests himself in what he does and goes the extra mile to make it as good as possible. He sets his own high standard. That kind of professionalism is a rare thing. The team works well together and has a strong work ethic. The attention to detail goes to minimising the disruption. Furniture is moved with care, floors and fittings protected and the house left in as clean a state as practicable at the end of the day. The quality of the work is excellent. We've had painters and decorators do work for us before, each time a bit of a gamble as to whether the people you hire are any good and trustworthy. I can confidently say we no longer need to go hunting . SOC is our go-to firm. It's no surprise that they were finalists in the 2019 Which? Trusted Trader awards. We've already recommended them to colleagues. Interestingly, it was SOC that drew our attention to Which? Trusted Traders. We'd found SOC on another platform, one features much more prominently in the media but without the rigour of the Which? vetting process. Perhaps Which? need to promote their "Trusted Traders" brand more.

Fantastic high quality finish and would definitely recommend
Customer Service
We had Splash of Colour Contractors come and re-decorate our living room, dining room and daughter's bedroom including re-painting of all walls, ceilings, woodwork, sash windows and cornicing. We are incredibly pleased with the results and the overall finish of all the rooms. They were very hard working throughout their time at our house and it is very obvious how much they care about their work. Shaun's attention to detail is unbelievable and if he isn't happy with something he will stay late to ensure it is perfect. The job did run slightly over time however I feel this is due to the high level of finish which they are striving for and would have no concerns about recommending them to anyone looking for a decorator. They went above and beyond what we were expecting and are looking forward to having them come back to decorate some more of our house in the future.

Excellent standard of work
Customer Service
Splash of Colour painted the exterior of my house/garage and windows. It was done to an excellent standard and I was very impressed with their attention to detail. There is nothing slap dash about this company. They were as careful about the preparatory work as the painting itself and set aside time to tidy up at the end of the day. The job was done to the agreed budget. The staff were all very friendly and maintained regular contact to let me know where they were at in the job. I would highly recommend Splash of Colour and will definitely call on their services again.

Maintaining excellence
Customer Service
I've been looking to find a decorator like Billy Joiner who met the exacting standards that my mother set sixty years ago. As a boy I trailed Billy from room to room as he worked. He still achieved a great professional job. Two years ago, thanks to the Which Trusted Trader site, I found a worthy successor with Splash of Colour. They have done three jobs over the two years. This time they decorated a hallway and associated areas and repaired and painted a bathroom which had been damaged by rewiring. The most striking result was the renovation of 80 year old, oak, front doors. Shaun had indicated that he could achieve a striking transformation when he was working on earlier job at my house. He was right and I am delighted with the outcome. All the work was completed on time, with minimal mess, with great consideration for the constraints of family life and at very fair price. I highly recommend Splash of Colour and expect that they will be back for further jobs in the near future.

External paintwork
Customer Service
I used Splash Of Colour for external house painting which has just been completed. I was very impressed with their professionalism, courteous attitude and very high standard of workmanship. The job was scheduled a few weeks in advance and I was kept informed up until it started. The weather wasn't very good during the project time meaning they could not work certain days, Shaun always kept me up to date regarding this. They also repaired some brick work/rendering that had parted on the house, which I had expected to get another contractor to do. You can tell that they take pride in their work and it shows by how good the house is looking now. I will be recommending Splash of Colour to anyone looking, definitely worthy of a 5 star review!

Windows and woodwork
Customer Service
Had "Splash of Colour" decorators round to carry out external painting of house windows and woodwork. I already had taken a quote from them to the cost of this work. Guys turned up on time on the date arranged. They had been recommended to myself by a friend as they were "which trusted traders". They certainly turned out to be a very professional outfit who pride themselves on giving the customer the painting finish that they are looking for. Could see for myself that only top quality paint was used by them for the outside painting work. Finished product looked great and will last for years. Through out the work I was kept informed, great attention to detail no clutter or mess was apparent. Previous to SOC turning up I had used workman from a different platform on a separate project with a different end result I have no hesitation on recommending "Splash of Colour" to anyone else who is looking for the best in the business. Don't chance it get the "best." Will be my first and only choice for any future work.

Amazing professionals who saved my flat from a rogue trader!
Customer Service
I contacted Splash of Colour to come out to review the painting work done in my flat by a person who I thought to be a legitimate painter as i found them on another 'professional' traders platform but who turned out to be a rogue trader. My flat was left in a dire state due to the poor quality of work and lack of care taken to cover flooring, prep walls and woodwork. When both Shaun and William came out to view my flat they were professional, courteous and took the matter very seriously. They could see how bad I felt about the situation and assured me they could help and help fast! 24hrs later, Shaun and William had rearranged jobs to accommodate coming out at the start of the following week to the commence work. They were mindful of my previous bad experience and kept me updated on a daily basis, and completed the work on time. For me that showed how the consumer/client is at the very heart of what they do. The standard of their work is exemplary and given they had to correct another person's work which made the job harder, the finish to my bedroom, bathroom, and hallway completely exceeded expectations. The quality of their work is matched to their attention to detail and is commendable. I look forward to contracting Splash of Colour again to complete my livingroom and kitchen and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for painter and decorators who deeply care about their profession and treating consumers well.

Outside of House Transformed!
Customer Service
What a treat it is to see our house totally transformed! Shaun and Shaun (and team) were asked to paint the whole of the exterior including all masonry and woodwork. Their attention to detail was impressive – both in their preparation and in the accurate finishing. Nothing was too much trouble and they did extra jobs without even being asked – e.g. they cleaned out our gutters while they were doing the soffits and made repairs to damaged woodwork. They were polite and friendly; liaising also with our neighbours to access the side wall of the garage, and it was a pleasure to have them on the premises. As the weather turned first too hot and then too wet and cold, Shaun was adamant that they would not compromise the quality of finish by starting in unsuitable conditions. Other contractors offered to start immediately but we decided to wait for Splash of Colour. In the interim they did some interior work for us that was done to such a high standard that we were sure we had made the right decision. And so it has proved to be. We are delighted and would recommend this terrific company without hesitation.
