We have had Dean McCathie Decorators in while we have had our new home completely refurbished. This was a large project with a few tricky surprises which were handled to the highest standards by Dean and his great team. Outstanding customer service always on time and the job left spotless and the end. Dean was able to use his knowldge and connections to recommend materials which saved us a large sum of money on this which was a great help setting up our first home. Thanks again to Dean Mc Cathie and his team. Would highly recommend.

As an established Main Contractor we have always struggled to get a reliable Painting & Decorating sub contractor, that all changed when we used the services of Dean McCathie and his team on a city centre townhouse we are refurbishing, the experience has been refreshing to say the least, the quality of the work and attention to detail is second to none, we will most definitely be using Dean McCathie painters on our next project and would not hesitate to recommend to others looking for a professional Painting and Decorating company.

Dean and his colleagues have completed an excellent job in our building. They painted the inside of our entire 3 storey building. The guys turned up each day and were helpful and spoke to all the neighbours about the work. The work has been completed to a very high standard and we (9 flats) are happy with the outcome. The stair looks so much better. I would defiantly recommend them to others.

We got Dean Mccathie and his team of decorators to fully redecorate our 1810 manor house.

Dean was the dearest of the 5 quotations we got but he was the most passionate and had the most knowledge out of all 5 companies. We felt at real ease while speaking with dean and he communicated really well with us and spoke us through every stage.

He provided us with references of previous presegious jobs throughout edinburgh and insurance documents.

As promised dean provided us with an astonishing high quality flawless job. Its great to see such a young lad eager and top of his class at what he does.

Without doubt i would use dean again and definitely recommend him.

Very hard to find local punctual friendly and proffesional tradesmen and dean was certainly by far the best tradesman i have ever come accross in all my years.

I was impressed with Dean’s initial assessment of what we needed to be done in our new house. He knew we had tight timelines and assured me that he had a team capable of delivering. His quote was excellent out of 3 decorators. True to his word, he had his team starting early and the work was completed to time. When there were extras required, an estimate was produced and work was carried out only on agreement.

The quality of work was excellent. He has high standards which his team shares. The paint used was of high quality and he gave good advice regarding colour schemes.

His team were trustworthy and a nice bunch of guys. They had access to the property and ensured it was properly secured after the work.

I have no hesitation in recommending dean and his team.

Dean and his team are fantastic. Great turnaround for quote, very professional and worked to a very tight timescale. He decorated our entire house as final stages of our renovation. Fantastic job, very reliable and thoroughly professional. Once he started, he left only when finished. Cannot recommend these guys enough. Very reasonable prices for fantastic workmanship. We'll be using him again!

Got in touch with Dean as a friend recommended him. He came out to see me on time and gave me a really competitive quote. He seemed a nice lad and had some great advice and ideas which helped us a lot. So we asked him to carry out the work he quoted for and he quickly had us booked in. They completed the work on time and the end result was amazing. Really impressed by his work and how neat and tidy he was. Would certainly use his company again and have already recommended him to friends.

I run a building contracts company throughout Edinburgh, lothians & fife. I have Known Dean for sometime, as far back as when he was an apprentice at another Edinburgh company where it was always obvious Dean was going to be a great decorator. Deans attention detail and cleanliness while working is second to none. Dean has been doing work for over a year for our company now and based on all aspects of his work including price I would be confident and on many occasions have done , recommend dean and his guys to friends and family as well as using him to continue with our work.

I contacted Dean having been let down by another company that had carried out some works for me already,I wish I had contacted Dean earlier as it was like night and day between the service received

The works were carried out on time,the area was left clean and the finished job was fantastic

I will not hesitate in contacting Dean for further works
