Quality Workforce

Our clients tell us they appreciate the administrative organisation as well as the quality of workmanship we produce. We communicate effectively both before and during a job to ensure we deliver on performance and meet every client’s expectations. We also ask for feedback at the end of a project so we can confirm client satisfaction.

For 50 years we have been employing people directly from the local community. Many of our staff have been with us for more than 30 years and our company is well known throughout the borough. It is our “family” ethos which has cemented our relationships with our clients over the years.

At the other end of the spectrum we work closely with Constructionskills and the local college to provide apprentices who are trained and hold qualifications up to Level 3 NVQ Painting and Decorating.

Environmental Policies

We are committed to environmental issues. As well as adopting policies in-house we also ensure clients are advised on the most suitable products for their needs and the environment. Wherever possible we use water based paints and natural paints such as Earthborn which do not contain VOCs.
