Review Comments
A friend recommended Bobby Gordon's work after he had decorated a converted chapel, complete with large, awkward Gothic windows. No aspect of the job seemed to faze him, she said.

I soon discovered that the reason for that is because Mr Gordon is an experienced professional: he is totally reliable and his work is of the highest standard. He is calm, genuine and honest. In my absence he completely redecorated a two bed terrace house inside (walls, ceilings and all the woodwork) and also all the external paintwork, which was in dire need of renewal. The house was left clean. fresh and tidy - the paintwork was immaculate. I was so grateful that I had been able to leave him to get on with this fairly big job whilst I was elsewhere.

In my turn therefore I am more than happy to recommend Bobby Gordon as a first class painter and decorator. More than that however, he is a man of honesty and integrity. I can say no more.

Whole house painted after renovation work.  Four bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 3 public rooms: Very high standard of work.  Delays to other parts of the project meant Bobby had to work around other tradesmen which he did with no fuss and even worked weekends and evenings to help us gain an extra week to move in.  He offered to return after our carpets were laid to tough up any damage from the fitters at no extra charge and when I phoned him to tell him they were finished he arrived the same day.  You couldn't get a better painter.  A fantastic experience and we will certainly be using him again.

Mr Gordon applied 3 coats of paint to our new extension and existing kitchen: Mr Gordon came at very short notice which was extremely helpful to us.  The standard of his work was exemplary and his manner was very courteous.  We would be happy to employ him again.

Decorating a double bedroom with 2 coats of paint on walls, ceilings and woodwork including built-in wardrobe.  Preparation including filling holes made by photographs and paintings, nails and hooks in walls.  Painting of two 3 drawer chests in Farrow & Ball: Bobby always does a first rate job with a minimum of fuss and disruption within the house.

Complete redecoration of kitchen.  Filling in cracks in ceilings of bedroom, sitting room and hall and painting of all three ceilings: Mr Gordon is very reliable and trustworthy.  He pays great attention to detail and is a very tidy worker.  He is prepared to move furniture, remove and replace curtains and also offers to vacuum before leaving.  I would not hesitate to recommend him.

Lounge and dining room - papered feature walls - painted newly finished wood and plaster - 3 days: Once more an excellent job completed to the highest standard - felt assured from previous work done that I would get above and beyond what I'd paid for - and was happy to leave my keys with him to come and go as suited while we were both at work - have already recommended to family and friends.

Painted and decorated long hall and stairs: Excellent job undertaken and completed well within predicted timescale.  Very tidy worker and executed the decor job to a very high standard.  Cheerfully accommodated my own changing shift patterns to suit.  Would definitely recommend.
