Robert painted our main bathroom after renovation, we have used him before and the quality of work was outstanding every time. From his prep work to punctuality, helpfulness and friendly manner everything was great and we would have absolutely no qualms recommending his services. His work is excellent and very reasonable. If we could give him 6 * stars we would.

Absolutely delighted with the quality of the painting work carried out by Robert Brown. All preparation work carried out prior to painting was meticulous. I was very fortunate to get the work carried out before the latest restrictions and I would highly recommend Robert to others looking for a painter/decorator.

We contacted Robert for a quote to paint our hall/staircase, sitting room and conservatory. Arrived on time to do the quote and was impressed immediately. He offered suggestions we hadn't even thought off. Arrived on time the first day (and every day after that) and always cleared up afterwards. Was always bright and cheerful even first thing in morning. Would tell us the night before which room he would be doing next day so we could move elsewhere. Truly a professional and takes great pride in his work. Will definetely use again.

Ps
Didnt even have to make him a coffee. Just left jar of coffee, kettle ( and the biscuit tin for caramel wafers) and he did away himself.

We contacted Robert to redecorate our hall, dining room, lounge and kitchen. It was a huge task as wood varnished ceilings in dining room and lounge were to be changed to white satin finish. Robert came to see us about the job and we were immediately impressed as he came on time when promised to discuss the job. As it was such a huge job we went to our daughter's house for the three weeks and let Robert get on with the work. He is totally reliable, trustworthy and very meticulous and has such a lovely temperament. Nothing is too much trouble and his work is absolutely top class. It took lots of patience and hard work doing our ceilings and after five coats it was looking very impressive. Robert's attention to detail is seen in his work and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to any of our family or friends. We will certainly be calling on Robert again for any future work and enjoyed meeting him as he is such a gentleman and first class tradesman.

Review Comments
I had the soffits and front door of my house painted and then inside I had some quite nasty wallpaper stripped off the hall, the walls were filled and painted and so were the door facings and other woodwork and the ceiling was painted.

Robert was great: skilled in his work, reliable, punctual, patient, honest, conscientious, friendly and his rates were very reasonable. Getting the absolute centre of your very small house and all of the entrances to every room painted when you’re stuck inside working from home is quite a boxed-in kind of an experience but Robert was so easy going and efficient it was fine.

Robert painted our garage door and gate etc.
We read the previous reviews and would echo the sentiments wholeheartedly. We have already recommended him to friends and family. He completed the work ahead of schedule and this was reflected in the final cost for which he has our grateful thanks. He is well mannered, kind, very pleasant and very professional. We wish him well and would have no hesitation in using his services again.

We have used R&B Decorators on many occasions. Robert is professional courteous and friendly and as always did a fantastic job when completing painting on the outside of our property. I would highly recommend R&B decorators.

Painting walls and woodwork, varnishing doors and windowsills in upstairs and downstairs hallways, stairway, two bedrooms and bathroom. Clean, punctual, pleasant, careful and dog-friendly! Completely trustworthy; I was comfortable with leaving Robert a house key and letting him get in with it. Delighted with the job done and very happy to recommend.

Review Comments
We had our apartment completely repainted. Robert was extremely professional throughout. When he came to give us a quote he took time to talk to us about what we wanted, and advised us on what types of colours might suit different rooms and different walls.
When doing the work Robert proved to be very professional, turning up when agreed, working steadily throughout the day, and showing care and attention in the quality of his work. He was a very tidy and organised worker throughout.
Robert is very proud of his work, and he made sure that the finished product met his exacting standards e.g. he did an extra coat of paint in the living room to ensure that the light colour completely covered the previous darker shade.
We are very happy with the job, and would heartily recommend R&B Decorators (and he's a nice guy too!)

Robert has just finished painting our Staircase and has made an excellent job. We've already got a quote for our kitchen and our daughter and neighbour have asked him for quotes as well. He is reliable, tidy and aware that this is a busy home with 3 kids and 3 adults needing to access toilet and bedrooms. I would not hesitate to recommend Robert.

Robert did our kitchen and hall first and we loved it so got him to come and do the bedroom. Now in the process of booking him for the rest of the house.
Loved the work he did. Totally transformed each room.
Very reliable and hard working and I must admit we could have stood and spoken to him all day :)
Thanks Robert.
