"A true professional! Lee was a pleasure to work with from our very first meeting. His input into the refurbishment of our kitchen was invaluable. Although we had to wait for Lee’s services it was well worth it. His attention to detail is second to none and the pleasure he gets from doing a first-class job is evident from the minute he arrived to the day he sadly left. His methodical, organised and very tidy way of working was so re-assuring. I cannot praise his work highly enough and still smile every morning when I walk into the newly decorated kitchen. Thanks Lee."
"Lee has just finished painting our kitchen and we are absolutely delighted with the result. The finish is superb and the kitchen is completely transformed. Lee is very talented and takes a great deal of pride in his work. He is incredibly meticulous and spends a lot of time on preparation but the result is clearly worth every minute. I have no hesitation in recommending Lee for any specialist paintwork and will certainly mention him to all my friends and family."
"What can I say other than totally blown away with the completed work. Lee’s attention to detail was fascinating to watch. Dedicated, tidy, neat, friendly, professional. Our comments don’t do his work justice. Everything just looks so natural that you don’t notice it."
"Lee painted a fabulous mural with amazing paint effects and that matches our decor perfectly. He is friendly, diligent and was very responsive to our ideas. We now have an outstanding work of art on our wall and could not be happier."
"Thank you once again for your beautiful work, as ever a fantastic job! Your work has transformed the rooms and we are thrilled. Thank you for being positive and easy to work with, you are a joy to have around the house and we look forward to you doing the boy’s room later in the year."
