    "Ken was recommended to us and he truly lived up to our expectations for the exterior repaint of our rental property. He did an excellent job, and finished a day earlier than expected. His communication was absolutely amazing at every stage and I can thoroughly recommend him. We'll certainly be contacting him again when we come to the interior repaint of our home. "

    "I fully recommend Ken - he is an absolute professional with a great attention to detail and goes out of his way to ensure a first rate job is done. Ken fully discussed options and gave helpful advice over painting the interior of our house. The work was half completed when the Anniversary Day flood struck and severe damage was done including new flooring and damage to walls. Ken not only re-painted, but also replastered the damaged walls, going beyond the work originally contracted for. All work was done to a high standard and we will certainly use Ken again for our properties."

    "I have been using Ken for a few years now and I can highly recommend him. He always works to a very high standard with great attention to detail. I have an old home and the windows were in a terrible state. It was a big job and not easy work. Ken stripped them all back and they looked amazing after sanding and painting. I'm so happy with the work he has completed. He is very tidy and I can totally trust him in my home. He is a great bloke very warm and friendly and really knows his trade. I can highly recommend Ken."

    "We would highly recommend Ken. His work is of a high standard and great attention to detail. Ken has recently completed exterior work to our house and has done interior work to include painting walls and woodwork - everything completed to a high standard and we are over the moon as to how good it looks. It is also great to have someone in your home who you can totally trust. He is a very tidy worker and leaves your home clean and tidy. It is great to meet someone who is so good at their trade, very knowledgeable, always cheerful and an all round great guy. Thanks Ken for the work you have done."

    "Ken fitted us in last minute to touch up our walls in between tenants. We found him friendly, reliable, honest and showed great attention to detail and a very nice finish. Ken personally does the work so no subcontractors, which was important to us. We will use him again. Thanks Ken."

    "I am thrilled with the work Ken has done for me. Ken gave me advice about paint colours, completed the job in the time frame we discussed, and has taken absolute pride in his work with attention to detail. Ken painted the entire inside of my house and it was great to be able to trust him with my home. His communication skills were excellent, and I couldn't have asked for a better person for the job. Thanks Ken! "

    "We would highly recommend Ken to paint the inside of your house. He not only is very professional, he also does a great job and takes pride in his work.
    Ken stayed at our home when we were away and also looked after our elderly cat. It was very reassuring knowing we had someone we trusted in our home whilst he continued working.
    Thanks for a great job Ken

Ken took care of everything ie removing curtains, tracks, light switches and furniture. He cleaned up and vacuumed as he went which was appreciated. "

    "Ken has been our 'go to' painter over the years, he has painted our house inside and out and more recently we have contracted him to paint the renovation to the house. His attention to detail and indepth knowledge of the product and best practice has assured us we are in the right hands. We have even had the neighbours' painters enquire as to who painted our house because they had recognised a superior job. His workmanship and preparation are unparalleled and I would not hesistate to recommend him."

    "Ken painted the outside of my house and also many of the interior walls. He is an excellent painter, hard working, cheerful, willing to do whatever is asked. There was a problem with the exterior paintwork and he organised a paint consultant to come and give advice. He always made sure I knew what was happening and went above and beyond expectations. I cannot recommend him highly enough."

He even came in under the quoted price, of course we kept him well fed on Fresh baked scones/Jam and coffee every morning plus some lunches. :-) "
