Michael Clowes

Victorian house renovation

Jan and John were a pleasure to deal with during the renovation of my Victorian property. As is often the case with houses of this age, the job became increasingly complicated as the work progressed, and both John and Jan were very good at communicating with me and together we managed to come up with creative solutions for every curve ball the house threw at us. The quality of the work is excellent.

Mary Davies

Decorating and make-over

... I am absolutely delighted with my living room. I knew I wanted to change my room but didn't really know where to start. At my initial consultation with Jan, all I could really tell her was that I wanted some colour and wanted it to feel more cosy.


Decorating and re-modelling

Jan remodeled our bedroom, from arranging the plastering to wallpapering and painting. She fitted skirting boards and new doors. All Jan's work was of a very high standard, her wallpapering skills are excellent and the finish on the paintwork is exceptional. Jan was on time, worked extremely hard and diligently to finish early. She was so clean and tidy and always polite and friendly. We had no qualms in leaving her our keys to work whilst we were on holiday. Definitely would recommend, we without doubt will use Jan's services again.
