I highly recommend Tom - he’s highly professional & not a bish bosh, slap dash worker. On our building he has spent days and days preparing, rubbing down, refilling, rendering and putting right a rather dodgy job that was done a few years ago. That is before he even started the paintwork - he’s taken everything right back and used the right products for the job, he doesn’t cut corners and really knows his trade. Trustworthy, honest and reasonably priced. He’s sorted out the scaffolding & can also mend sash windows.

We just used a chap called Oscar for painting and decorating the main areas of our house.

Couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Very friendly and did a fantastic job. Quite reasonable as well.

If anyone would like his details let me know

Yes please too!

We’re usual Elliott’s decorators at the moment. They’ve been amazing.

We recently had 2 large lounge walls painted by ZAL THE PAINTER… twice, as we changed our mind on colour, and he was fantastic. Friendly, accommodating, super tidy and an excellent and accurate paint job. Materials were provided at cost price with receipts and the work was very competitive.

A very professional job done by a lovely guy.
His number is : 07796 719934

Hi, I’m wondering if anyone can recommend a painter who can do smaller jobs. I have some exterior woodwork and masonry painting that needs doing. It’s not a long job so it’s hard to find someone who’s interested.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi @SE23Northener welcome to the forum - I’ve moved your post over into the Painter Recommendations thread - hopefully you find someone. I have a young chap working over at my place right now - he might be happy to do a small job - he pops in on the occasional weekend for a few hours to do some work at my place - I’ll ask him and then PM you if you like.

Hi All

Giving back now, as I’ve relied on recommendations from this forum so hoping this will help others.

We used Martin Dixon of Prodec Construction (07507 353 009) to decorate our 4 bed apartment in Forest Hill, including painting of walls, woodwork and hanging wallpaper.

Martin was competitively priced and his team did a great job whilst being super quick and went above and beyond.

Couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
