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.

Complete house - exterior painting.

David Borthwick carried out the quote and sent it to me the same evening. He was honest and straightforward about what was involved, patiently answered all my questions and told me how long the job would take (4 days).

Stuart and the team (Four in total) arrived about 30 minutes early each day and just got on with the job. They drank their coffee whilst working and took a really short lunch break. They were friendly, efficient, helpful and RESPECTFUL to us, our neighbours and the property. No loud radio, no shouting and no smoking. (Throughout this period it was freezing - these guys just got on with it)

Throughout the job Stuart (all of the team actually) kept in touch to make sure they were doing what we wanted and that we were happy with quality and finish.They worked late on a couple of occasions to keep the job bang on schedule.

They used loads of drop-sheets and masked the windows and doors so the driveway and the garden didn't get painted along with the house. They left the place immaculate.

In short,David was great to deal with, the paintwork is great and the guys were a pleasure to have around.

I wish all contractors were like this.

The exterior of our property which is 120 years old - all woodwork was thoroughly prepared for painting which in itself was a time taking difficult process. The building structure was repaired in parts, window sills replaced and all now looks like new. The workmen were professional, polite and friendly, any questions answered. The end product is wonderful and I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for a job well done.

External works on flat (railings, balcony, windows). David and his team were very accommodative of our limited window of opportunity and scheduled our piece accordingly within the overall development works. They turned up on time which was critical for us and did the job to spec and on time and budget. Communications were excellent and they handled the liaison with the factors well. Couldn't be better. Would definitely use again.

Outside of windows painted. David was very helpful the whole way through, showing patience when a hick-up at this end caused him to delay by a few days. I would be happy to use him again and to recommend him to others.

Over the past 5 years we have used Borthwick Decorators for all our interior and exterior decorating work. David and the team have been consistently excellent; offering welcome advice on materials and paint, providing competitive and transparent quotes, completing work in a timely manner to the highest standard and always following up with us to ensure we’re fully satisfied with their work. No project has been too small or too large and they make a real effort to avoid disruption and mess whilst working.

I have no hesitation in recommending them and will continue to use their services in future.

We have used Borthwick Decorators Ltd over the last 10 years for 2 business property refurbishments, our home and my son’s flat. The quality of workmanship is 2nd to none, the work was completed ahead of schedule or on time, they were always reliable, turning up when they were supposed to and great care was taken during the works to protect my flooring, units , furniture, etc. with everything meticulously cleaned up afterwards. Communication was great throughout and I was well informed about the schedule of works before and during the job and kept up to date throughout. The advice given on products and colours , etc was invaluable and helped us to achieve the results we were looking for. I can’t recommend Borthwick Decorators Ltd highly enough, they are a top quality, first class, professional business.

The Borthwicks did many jobs for us over the last 12 years. Home flats and businesses. No job is too small or too big. Most importantly always delivered on time. Not the least expensive but hey you get what you pay for.

We have had our exterior paintwork done by Borthwick Decorators and are extremely pleased with the outcome. The painting team were very tidy and always polite. Their time keeping was exceptional and it was a pleasure to have them on our property. We would not hesitate to recommend them for anyone who has exterior paintwork requirements.
