    "We engaged David to paint a living room, entrance hall and some windows in our house. When David was briefed on the work we were clear that we were wanting a high standard of finish and were happy to pay for that, acknowledging it was an old house and would never be perfect. Unfortunately our experience left a lot to be desired. While the windows and entrance hall were done to a satisfactory standard the living room was so unsatisfactory we had to get David and his painter, Thomas, to return to re-do it. Quite simply it looked like a coat of paint had been slapped on the walls with minimal, if any, sanding or other preparation. Additionally, the following issues left a very unfavourable impression:

    - Paint on the window fixtures and hot points because masking tape was not used

    - No consistent use of drop cloths to cover furniture so dust (even allowing for some settling of dust from the air) and paint scrapings covered some furniture which we were left to clean up

    - paint dribbled on the exterior deck where paint must have been poured from larger containers that has left an unsightly mess that will need to be sanded back and restained

    - Masking tape still stuck to the top of the light fitting that needed to removed by us

    - Paint flakes and dust dispersed over the front entrance and steps

    There appeared to have been no final inspection by David of his painter's work to check that he and we were satisfied with it - we had to raise these issues ourselves.

    David was willing to come around to get things fixed things up when we raised our concerns. But when providing feedback to David it was disappointing that he suggested that the job was a 'tidy up to sell' when we had been quite clear from the outset that it was not. We doubt the standard of finish would have done anything to help sell the house.

    Overall, a disappointing experience and we would recommend caution in dealing with this outfit.
    "
    David Anderson responded:
    "Affordable painting co has always prided itself on our reputation in the industry, we aim to do the best possible job to the highest standard for our customer as reflected in our ratings on this site. However, in this case the brief, as requested by your wife, was to make this home presentable enough to put on the market to sell within a tight budget. As we pointed out to your wife at the time, it wasn’t our preferred option to paint over the walls in the condition they were in, and that ideally, they should be gib stopped to give the best possible finish. We agreed to gap fill any holes, and paint. The job was done to the specifications requested, and the invoice was paid in full upon completion. As we had never met Nick from the start of this project up until and including payment, we were unaware that he wanted an ‘as new’ finish. We would have been more than happy to oblique with this but obviously it would have been reflected in the price, and your wife was very clear when we discussed this option that she did not want to spend the money. In response to some of your remarks the dust that was on the deck washed off in the rain. We did an extra 6 hours (at no charge) to sort out any areas of concern, and David did come and inspect the work. At the end of the day, we have to follow the instructions of the client and do our best within the brief given, and this is what we did in this instance. Our aim is always for the customer to be happy at the end of the job and we are always open to discuss any issues that you are not happy with. Hence it was disappointing to see a poor rating posted. This is not what APC stands for! "

    "We needed a painter that used eco-friendly paint and tried a few contacts. David was the most proactive and when we looked for guidance he gave us confidence he would deliver on what we needed - and he did. David and his team were fast and efficient and he went beyond our expectations by assisting with other jobs that needed doing such as connecting us with an electrician and a signwriter from his pool of trusted contacts. No hesitation in recommending this company for your next job."

    "David and his company have been amazing to work with. Easy and quick, they deliver on time and on budget. I run a short term property management company, so efficiency is very important to me, you can't go past these guys for a top job. I also love that they can help with just about every renovation/maintenance issue you can think of, I love that I don't have to waste time shopping around!"

    "My husband and I had a great experience with Dave and the Adfordable Painting Company. We couldn’t recommend them more highly.

    Our job was always ahead of schedule and I’ve never seen a team work harder and to such a high standard.

    We wouldn’t ever consider using another painting team in future. Our house has taken on a completely new life! "

    "We cannot speak highly enough of David and his team who took on the challenge of repainting our two storey 100 year old home in possibly the wettest February ever! The team were professional, respectful and took immense pride in their work - everything from preparation to final painting was done to a very high standard. David is a great project manager, he took charge of everything, communicated well and often, organised extra tradesmen (cutting out rotten wood, replacing facias and guttering) - nothing was too much trouble. If you are looking for a team that cares about their work, don't look further than Affordable Painting."

    "We replaced six aluminium windows with wooden ones in our 1940s bungalow and needed them to be prepared and painted inside and out. David and Thomas were both great with communication during the job and Thomas (who did the work) was brilliant -- on time, efficient, professional and with an eye for detail. The installation of the windows had been done a bit ruggedly and Thomas made them look a million times better. A big thanks to Thomas!"

    "I presented Affordable Painting with a challenging task: my house is three stories high, not easy to access, and on a 45 degree slope requiring extensive scaffolding. David's organisation was superb: his team highly skilled and considerate, and the quality of their work was first-class. I have seldom seen people work so hard and take such pride in their achievement. Nothing was too much trouble and they were unfailingly courteous and reliable. I would have no hesitation in recommending David and his Company."

    "We were caught short with our prearranged painter not being able to fit into our time frames so Dave came to the rescue. What a nice chap!! The way he presented himself and his company's ethos at our first meeting was impressive. This was backed up by the timeliness and quality of the job undertaken by his team. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble - a great attitude to have as we were heading into the pre Xmas crazy time. Dave's team have just finished our job and will be coming back to do some touch ups - however such is the trust that I have in him and his team, I have paid his invoice in full for this is how much confidence I have in his company delivering on their company's ethos. Great work Dave."

The whole team were good people and we felt very comfortable with them working in our home regardless of whether we were home or away. Nothing was too much trouble, completing a few other touch ups round the house, tidying up after themselves so that we could continue living in the house easily, etc. A reliable, personable, and good bunch of people who we would thoroughly recommend, thanks!"

    "Wow - what a great team. I was not happy with a quote and was put onto Affordable Painting Company by my interior designer who recommended them highly. I certainly see why. I was given a much better quote straight away and then the painting was done over the following two weeks. It was done to a very high standard and the two chaps doing the work were so pleasant to have around I will miss them. Very professional. David popped in to check on the work and was knowledgeable and helpful. I can't recommend them enough."

    "We have used Affordable Painters on two occasions, initially to paint the outside of our house and on the second occasion the interior.
    We were just as happy the second time as with the first. The price was good and so was the the communication with Dave. With the outside in particular Affordable Painters was great as Dave project managed the minor repairs that were required as they were discovered during the preparation of the house for painting.
    The outside still looks great 2 years later. We would be more than happy to use again.
