Testimonials

"Throughout my career I have had the pleasure of meeting many people. Here are my 2018/2019/2020 monthly testimonials."

Mark, Portishead. January 2018

I recently needed personalised help and attendance at a property in Portishead to address a number of issues. James enabled this to happen in a very professional manner, with particular attention paid to quality against cost.
Without this help the agency costs to not only administer the work, but also pay unknown external contractors would have been extremely high, with little attention to detail.
For any bespoke management services including repairs, renovation and maintenance I would highly recommend this service.

Celia Henshall, Chief Executive. Vision North Somerset, Weston Super Mare. February 2018

"James has carried out internal and external painting here at Vision North Somerset and we have been very pleased with the results.

 

James has provided additional services re-pointing the stonework of our Victorian building.

He also built us a neat little cupboard to house our telephone lines and equipment.

We found that James turned up on time, carried out clean and tidy work to a high standard and we would definitely ask him again to quote for further jobs in the future"

Ben, Totterdown, Bristol. March 2018

I had recent water damage to my kitchen ceiling and bedroom wall, James repaired and finished both jobs beautifully.

We also asked him to paint the front door at short notice which he fitted into the schedule.

Clean, tidy and easy to deal with, thank you.

April/May 2018

James completely redecorated our 5 bedroomed house and also pressure washed and stained a very large area of decking. This was a big job that he did single-handedly to a very high standard. We were particularly pleased with his attention to detail. Excellent service and very competitively priced. James is very knowledgeable and friendly and very accommodating as we had to change dates several times. Would definitely recommend, we’ve already booked him in for another job.

Sarah, Portishead. 

August 2018

James carried out repairs and repainting to my external wooden stairs, including replacement slats/steps and balusters. It was an extensive job with difficult access, for which he provided a competitive quote, and carried out the work with a high degree of professionalism and attention to detail. He is honest, tidy, and reliable with high standards of work.
I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends, or ask him to do further work in my own home in the future.

October 2018

James recently decorated a number of rooms for us including our hallway, stairs & landings. He was always punctual, polite, friendly & helpful, with good communication throughout the process. His attention to detail was great and we are very pleased with the result. Really positive experience that's turned our house into a home. We can't wait for him to come back next year to do the rest of the rooms.

James at Portishead Painting redecorated the front door to our property in Portishead.

 

Not only did he do a great job, but he was helpful with sourcing the paint and made upmost effort to complete the work during a very wet week.

Margaret & Terry, Portishead.

February 2019

Portishead Painting has just completed a week’s work at our home: painting the kitchen, a bedroom, and other jobs we thought of during the week, including putting up two blinds and tile grouting. We were completely satisfied with everything James did, his approach, standard of work, punctuality and tidying-up after each stage of work were excellent. We have already arranged for him to paint the outside of our house later in the year. 

Chris & Sarah, Portishead.

March 2019

We live at Tarragon Place and would 100% recommend James and Portishead Painting. We have a small child and dog and James was very professional and conscientious throughout in terms of how to prepare and paint walls in the best way for minimal disruption. He was able to come and quote straight away, we were booked in the next day and he started and finished in the week we agreed. His quote was very competitive. We have since booked James back in to paint the front and back external frames and doors in a couple of weeks time

April 2019

“After he had repainted our kitchen and a bedroom, we asked James of Portishead Painting, if he could give us a quote for staining the exterior windows of our bungalow. This was fair and reasonable, and James has just completed the work. He did an extremely thorough preparation of all the exterior woodwork, and interior in some rooms where he carefully protected the carpets and furnishings, and applied two coats - three in more vulnerable areas - of a carefully chosen wood stain. He made helpful suggestions, and worked very carefully and quickly, keeping us well informed of his work schedule which, as it was mainly exterior work, obviously had to allow for the weather. We are totally pleased with the finished result. Thank you.”

"So pleased we decided to use James for the job - not only is his van beautiful and so eye-catching, James is of course an excellent painter too!  Faced with painting our whole home, James was professional, thorough and so efficient for the two weeks it took him to undertake this rather large job. His attention to detail was second to none and he has transformed our home.  We are so pleased that we've also hopefully lined him up for further work with us over the coming months!"

Bernie, Portishead.

March 2020

"James carried out painting of the bathroom, landing , living room and lobby of our 2-bedroom terraced house. The work was carried out immaculately, in a difficult environment caused by lack of space and the need to work round furniture. His cleanliness could not be faulted, and he was always to keen to ensure that we were content with all aspects of the job. He is polite and good-humoured and I would not hesitate to use his services again. Thoroughly recommended".

"We are very happy to recommend James. We engaged him to redecorate an entire 4 bedroomed house. He attended to all the wall and woodwork prep; ensured that carpet and other items were properly protected, worked swiftly and with an excellent attention to detail. James provided us with a detailed estimate prior to starting the job; a very good estimate of the amount of paint required, maintained good communication throughout on a daily basis (we were away)including images and emailed his final invoice on completion. We were pleased to settle that swiftly respecting the high standard of work provided. James will be our first port of call for future painting and maintenance projects.
