"I can recommend Jay's work, he does the little extras that others miss. He is a tidy and conscientious worker and has integrity, he likes to do a good job. He has completed work for me at St Andrew's church, and he has given the (administrator's) cottage opposite a face lift inside and out, and this can be seen between 9.00 am and 12 noon Mon-Fri. I was so pleased with his work that he has done other work for me at home at very reasonable rates. I highly rate his work rate and skills. I would definitely continue to use him in the future.

The north side of our house was green and blistered but this was soon remedied, Jay also carried out some maintenance and small jobs for us. We were very pleased with the finish and would certainly use him again and recommend him.  Mrs Smith, Horrabridge

Mr Quarrie-Watson. Lamerton.

“Jay pressure washed and then repainted the exterior of our house in the spring of this year. The work was professionally done at an excellent fixed price. He also fitted hedgehog into the gutters around the house which will help to keep the gutters from clogging up with leaves. He is always cheerful and polite, completely reliable and cleared everything up at the end of each day. We were so pleased with his work that I have used his services twice since then for interior painting, again carried out to a very high standard and at a competitive price. Will have no hesitation in asking him to do more work in the future nor of recommending him to friends”

"My facias and upstairs windows had see better days but I didn’t want to replace them with plastic.  Jay and his colleague, Martin, did a wonderful job painting and doing some repair work to really bring them back to life.  Jay kept me informed of when he was going to start and how long the work would take, which really helped me organise my time.  The work was carried out with the minimum of fuss and very efficiently.  The cost was very reasonable and Jay was always so cheerful, nothing seemed to daunt him!  I would thoroughly recommend Jay and hope to have some more decorating done in the future.  Many thanks".

Mrs Busutill, Whitchurch.

Jay and Martin were a delight to have work on the house. The did a great job, they were both honest and trustworthy, incredibly reliable, extremely courteous and they went out of their way to help me settle into the area. They were also happy to complete a few additional odd jobs around the house which most decorators would have refused to do, such as replacing a lock and helping to renovate a sash window. A genuinely kind and talented team.

Mrs Hemsworth, Tavistock.



Many thanks for doing the work promptly, one

less job for me to think about at the moment".
