Borthwick Decorators did a fantastic job of painting or cornice and centre piece. They were responsive and quick and came up with a solution to fit our job in as soon as they could as it was just a small one. Stuart who arrived on the day was fantastic. We received a friendly and professional service from him, the result was beautiful and there was no mess left behind. We’re very pleased and we’d definitely come back for any further painting needs.

Review Comments
We have just had some excellent decorating done by Borthwick Decorators (end of June 2021) We have an open plan house in Auchterarder, and they must have done the equivalent of 2,000 sq ft of ceiling and 500+ sq ft of walls. It took the team 4.5 days working hard from 0800 to 1800 and we couldn’t fault them. Top team of Robert (organiser and leader), Eddie (helpful perfectionist) and Katie (always smiling hard worker) backed up on occasion by Steve and Nick. This is not the easiest of houses to do. The hall, living room and kitchen are open plan, and the hall is two storeys to the eaves. Architect’s dream and maintenance nightmare. They coped admirably with scaffolding and ladders, and, most importantly, such clean workers. Dust sheets everywhere and brush and vacuum always in evidence. We are more than happy to recommend them. Not the cheapest, perhaps, but value for money for the standard of workmanship and the personal management by David Borthwick. We will use them again if and when we do more.

We are extremely pleased not only with all the work done but also how it was carried out. A very professional, reliable, polite and friendly team. Arrangements were made very quickly and efficiently to assess the work needed and the quote followed shortly after. The work required major exterior repainting as well as joinery repairs. Everything was arranged and co-ordinated by the Borthwick team. All round, top marks for the quality of the work, ease of communication, co-ordination and reliability.

Excellent team of decorators who were simply fantastic to work with. This is a professional company who take their work seriously but are also good fun to have on site.

The team were extremely friendly, helpful, sharing hints and tips, and worked hard to complete the job on time. I could not be more pleased with the final result.

A large outside job painting the cladding, windows and doors. Dealing with Borthwicks was easy and they always replied quickly. Everything from getting a quote to invoicing was easy but the best aspect was the men themselves: polite, thoughtful, tidy and reliably turning up when they said they would.

Borthwick Decorators painted the interior walls of our flat. The services was first class - a very high quality finish but they were very quick and tidy. The guys worked hard to fit around us and were really flexible with dates too. Really please with the end result.

There's no better advertisement than a satisfied customer and we were very satisfied with the service and quality of work.
Both our house and garage were prepared and painted to a high standard and the team were scrupulous in tidying up after the job was finished.
We expect to have them back to do some interior decorating.

Review Comments
I would absolutely recommend Borthwick Decorators Ltd. Having a massive stairwell fire in our communal 3 floor tenement building it wasn't just a repaint. The soot damage was extensive and the stairwell was coated in a thick black coating.

Our stairwell has now been transformed. Everything was five star from the communication with the owner of the company, David Borthwick, to the decorators that completed the stairwell. Everything was thoroughly discussed especially when it came to choosing the colour palette.
I am so happy that I chose this company to take on this mammoth task as it wasn't a straight forward paint and the other stairwell residents agree that it is so much brighter and finished to an outstanding standard.

Many thanks to David and his team; Stuart, Steve and Katie.

Borthwick Decorators painted our lounge and dining room including all woodwork and the ceilings. They also painted the bathroom ceiling. Very prompt response to my enquiry with a comprehensive quote. The decorators who completed the work were very professional and friendly. The finished result is very pleasing and I would certainly use them again.

I had my 2 bed property decorated throughout and I am very pleased with the result, especially the papered sections. There was good communication throughout and the staff were friendly and pleasant and always turned up on time.
Any minor niggles were promptly resolved and I would be very happy to use them again and to recommend them to others.
