Borthwick Decorators recently redecorated our ornate ceiling- Kamil and Nicholas did an excellent job, working at extreme heights and navigating themselves around a very big old building- the end result is beautiful.
David came out to do quality checks and I found Borthwick to be extremely professional , communication was excellent and we would definitely use them again.

Whilst we were on holiday, the boys came in and did a fantastic job, 4 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen and an outside stair which is now sparkling. We have used Borthwicks before and would certainly do so again

I had all my external window frames painted by Stuart and his team from Borthwick Decorators. They took great care over the preparation of the frames, which were in a pretty awful state. Painting was carried out with precision and skill. Stuart is a perfectionist and at completion my windows frames looked good as new! Borthwicks are a very professional company to deal with and Annemarie in the office was always responsive and helpful. I am delighted to give them a 5 star review.

They checked we were happy with the end result and tidied up really well every day. We were delighted with their work and will happily use them again.

We appointed Borthwick Decorators to fully paint the communal hallways of our flatted development (walls, ceilings, skirting broads, window frames, door frames, balustrades and bannisters) and we couldn’t be more satisfied and happy with the end result. Communication with David was always excellent throughout the process, from beginning to completion (painting specification, quote, and starting date) and David was always was very approachable and quick to respond with his expert knowledge to any questions we had.

Eddie and his team of painters who painted the communal hallways, were fantastic: very professional, skilled, friendly, hard-working and helpful and nothing was ever an issue. They arrived punctually everyday and tidied up afterwards, and ensured that everything was painted to our satisfaction, and all in all, it was a pleasant experience.

We would thoroughly recommend Borthwick Decorators, and for any future painting work, we wouldn’t think of going to anyone else.

We had the exterior of our house painted, plus all windows and doors. David and his team were brilliant! The quote was clear and fair and the work completed exactly as and when promised. We were very impressed.

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.
