We wanted to write as Tom has recently completed some decorating work for us in our lounge/ dining room and hall, stairs and landing. We found him on the internet and took a bit of a risk as we are new to Brighton and so didn’t have any recommendations to go on. We have not been disappointed.
From when we first contacted Tom, he has been professional and polite at all times. He provided a detailed quote for the work and was very helpful in making suggestions for materials including the type and colour of paint. Tom’s attention to detail and preparation is fantastic, there was a lot of filling needed, which you would never guess from looking at the walls now. Tom was clear about how long the job would take and turned up when he said or if running late for any reason rang/ text in advance to inform us. We found Tom to be respectful of working in our home and always cleaned up at the end of the day. We will definitely be recommending Tom to friends and colleagues and would have no hesitations about getting him to do further decorating in the future. We are now enjoying spending time in our new home and have had lots of positive comments about the decorating. Thanks Tom :o). Sian and Jo
I originally asked Tom to renovate one bedroom which was in need of updating. Tom’s attention to detail was clear from the start, meticulously preparing the surfaces and finishing the room to a very high standard.
The result was so good that I asked Tom to do another two rooms plus the hallway to bring the rest of the flat up to the same standard. Tom was able to assist with decision-making along the way, from the colour of the paints to the type of product to use based on my desired finish.
Nothing is too much work for Tom and he often went above and beyond what most decorators offer – from putting up coving to adding beading to internal doors.
He was an absolute pleasure to work with, providing fair quotes and sticking to both the budget and timeframes agreed. I whole-heartedly recommend Tom to anyone in need of an expert decorator and look forward to working again with him in the future. Chris Perrett
We asked Tom to paint the 6 rooms in our Hove flat.The first thing that impressed us was the advice he gave us on the various paints available on the market and their suitability for the surfaces to be painted.
We have to echo the many sentiments about Tom's nature and professionalism that have already been written.
When he started the job it became evident that Tom has a meticulous eye for detail and every aspect of the job was completed to the highest of standards. As a result, we have no hesitation recommending his services to our friends or anyone reading these testimonials. John Gardner.
To whom it may concern.
We have known Tom now for a year. In that time he has completed many decorating jobs in our home. He is hardworking, reliable and extremely trustworthy and most definitely the most cheerful decorator we have ever come across. Being an extremely fussy person it was totally reassuring knowing that at the end of every day everything would be left tidy and clean. Since decorating out home he has decorated our shop inside and out. We would most definitely recommend him and indeed have already done so. Gesella & Patch
Tom recently painted my cottage. I cannot speak too highly of him and his work. Rarely today, it seems, do we encounter real craftsmen who approach their profession with such care and attention to detail. Needless to say, the end result is magnificent. The job was done within the budgeted cost and absolutely on schedule. Not something I have encountered often in the past.
On top of it all, Tom brings a calm and pleasant approach to each day on the job. I would recommend him at the drop of a hat to anyone. You will not be disappointed with the results. - Steve Murray
We had Tom repaint our office exterior and he did a cracking job. His attention to detail and meticulous nature meant the task was done quickly and within budget. He even rebuilt part of our wooden doors as needed replacing. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Tom for future work. - Dan Griffiths
We’d only recently moved into our house which was in need of quite a bit of decorative work. We asked Tom to completely redecorate all three bedrooms - as well as fitting replacement picture and dado rails. The quality of his work and his attention to detail were excellent and we were really happy with the outcome. As a result, we invited him back to refurbish and paint the entire front of the house for us. Again he did an impressive job and made a real difference to our house’s first impressions! It was clear to us that Tom cares about making sure his work is in keeping with the character of the house that he’s working on – and this was important to us. He’s also a nice guy! And if you don’t take our word for it – it’s worth pointing out that our next-door neighbours are now using him to do up their living room! I’m sure they’ll be as impressed with their results as we were with ours. - Mike & Jo
Hard working, an eye for detail and a really nice guy. We were delighted with the end result. - Rob Verheul Tom painted the complete exterior of my house in summer 2009. The top half is wooden weatherboard and Tom use eco paint, which he said could last for up to 15 years.
I am delighted with the standard of work and on several occasions when I've been in the front garden, perfect strangers have remarked how smart the house looks. Some even mistake the weatherboarding for plastic cladding as it has such a wonderful sheen. - Louisa Nun.
We asked Tom to decorate four rooms in the Victorian house we moved into in Balcombe at the beginning of this year. The work he did was of a very high standard and we were extremely pleased with the finish. Tom was always very friendly and polite and he not only understood exactly what we wanted for the rooms we were sure about, but was also great at making proactive suggestions when we weren't quite sure what we were after - all of his suggestions have worked out really well.
The work Tom did for us was great value for money but, more importantly for us, he made the whole process very comortable and easy. - Martin & Alasdhair
We we're very pleased with the job Tom did. He is hard working, honest, and great value to boot! - Mike & Stefanie.
I have been really satisfied with Tom's work and have invited him back to do more. He works efficiently and cleanly and has really smartened up my entire hallway and kitchen. He pays attention to detail, works to a good standard and is very fair in his pricing. - Mary.
Tom did a fantastic job painting my sash windows. He was prompt, tidy, polite and professional - everything I could ask for. - T Llewelyn."
Our windows look fab. Tom did a great job and was very clean, tidy and quick. - Alice Corrie"
It was a pleasure to have Tom working in our home. He was always polite and punctual, as well as being very efficient, clean and tidy.
He decorated our communal hallway, internal hallway and master bedroom, all of which were completed on time and within budget. The finished result looks fantastic and it is clear that Tom takes great pride in his work. I have had no hesitation in recommending him to our friends who have since had similar experiences when using his decorating services. - Chris H.
We contacted Tom to do a restoration job on the seven hardwood doors to the front of our building. They were in a variety of conditions with some having been oiled, some varnished and some completely neglected. He did a fantastic job of bringing them all up to original condition with a minimum of fuss and at a very reasonable price. His knowledge of finishes was really helpful and he consulted with us and advised how to get the look we were after. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone and we will certainly be asking him to do more work for us. - The Old Maynards Sweet Factory
I have just had my bedroom and two bathrooms decorated by Tom. I am really pleased with the results. Tom was really helpful and knowledgeable about decorating and was able to give me good advice about choosing paints. Tom did a quality job and all at a great price. I am recommending him to friends already! - Samantha Pena.
This arrangement has been engaged by myself to decorate my bedroom, hall and bathroom. His work is excellent, clean, and his attendance extremely reliable. I am available for contact for confirmation. - Mr S. Posner.
