‘Does what it says on the tin’ must, by now, be a very overused epithet – especially for decorators.
So, let’s go one better and rate Mark and his colleague, Nick, ‘better than it says on the tin’.
It’s not just that the all important results are precisely what we wanted in re-decorating our hall and staircase but how those results were achieved – with just the right mix of professionalism and pleasantness.
After some wallpaper was removed, the making good of the wall underneath emerged as more of a challenge than either we or Mark had envisaged. But the ‘magic’ was worked the finished emulsion surface is flawless. This was done without adding to the quote that we had been given at the outset – which was itself a very fair price that was competitive with the other quotes we received.
Having tradespeople working extensively in your home for several days isn’t always an easy experience but Mark and Nick made it so by their work, how they did it and their cheerful banter.
