Surbiton, Surrey

My wife and I recently had our hallway, staircase, landing and the exterior of our house redecorated by Ian Phillips.

Directly after we phoned for a quotation, we then received a visit and a written quotation followed a couple of days later. The quote was very well laid out and included a breakdown of labour and material costs. I should point out it was also very competitive compared to other quotations I had received.

Before work commenced we received a courtesy call confirming the time and date the decorators would arrive.

On day one all the old paper was removed from the walls with the minimum disruption, the house was left tidy.

Day two the cracks in the walls were filled.

Day three all the doorways were sealed with plastic sheet and tape and the walls sanded, again with the minimal mess. I have experienced decorators before and the dust goes everywhere! This time no mess.

The papering and painting followed, and the job was completed on time to a very high standard.

We had not planned to decorate the outside of the house, but we were so pleased wiht the job inside we asked for a quote. Again everything was handled in a very professional way.

I would not hesitate in recommending Ian and his colleagues if you require any decorating or painting.

Ian Phillips, Painting & Decorating Specalist, carried out extensive work both inside and outside our property in June and July.

Inititally he was employed to put right extensive damage caused by water which meant the entire redecoration of the kitchen and the ceiling in the room above it. This work was carried out most professionally and to our entire satisfaction.

We later called again upon Mr Phillips to paint and decorate the entire outside of the property. This work was also done to a very high standard and to our satisfaction.

Mr Phillips is a man who takes great pride in the quality of his workmanship and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to future clients.
