Exterior Decorators

Lizzie asks:

Have trawled your site for help – but cannot find any decorators under services or trusted tradespeople.
Our front door, window frames, sills, guttering and soffits (sic?) badly in need of attention; never mind the downpipes, oo err. Anyone you know who’ll do a proper job (sanding it all right back etc.)? Will probably require scaffolding too….

Hurrah for Lizzie actually using the tabs at the top (someone the other day had even read the FAQs, too.) Sorry there’s no one in there yet for that particular service; I’m very picky about who goes in there and I’d rather have a gap than someone I’m not convinced about. I do have some tradespeople to add to the TT section, but they’re not external painters, ‘fraid.

So, folks – any suggestions?

    I’m a huge fan of the TT section, recently I used Dave Holmes to fix my broken laptop, and he was brilliant. Cost £40 and for that he even delivered it back to me and hooked it up to my wireless internet!

    Re decorators, I can certainly recommend the father and son team who have decorated our whole house, inside and out. I’ve recommended them to a number of friends locally who have also used them. They are old-school tradesmen who do a proper job and clean up after themselves. Contact Alan on 01634 711046

    Another fairly local contractor worth checking-out is Queens Road, Peckham-based Oliver Craughwell (and family)- 020 8691 2111 / 07887 862 137. We, and several other managed developments use him/them for exterior / common area redecorations, and plan to use him again.

    Hi we’ve used Tim Groom for a number of years for internal and external decoration and he’s always been very good quality and value.
