We were delighted with Jake’s service from start to finish. He is very professional, honest and trustworthy and communicates very clearly. Both he and his apprentice did an excellent job painting our windows and masonry. We would absolutely use him again and would highly recommend him to others.

Jake painted my hall, living room, staircase & landing while I was on holiday. He is reliable, clean and tidy & very easy to get on with. His detail to work is nothing less than perfection (which of course is very important to me). Very pleased with the excellent finish on my return. Will certainly contact Jake again for any future jobs.

We have now had Jake in to decorate twice - repeat business says it all! Excellent work, even sanding walls and ceilings to get smooth finish. I cannot fault his work in any way. In addition, Jake and Dan arrive on time, clean up afterwards, and are polite and cheerful at work. Price not cheap but excellent value! I'd highly recommend Jake if you want great quality work.

Review Comments
I never go with the lowest quotation. This was not the lowest quotation but was not the highest. I look, first and foremost, for high quality workmanship, professionalism, a conscientious approach and excellent reviews. These high expectations were met in full by Jake Donald. Jake painted all external surfaces of our detached 1952 home. All roughcast walls, garage doors, front doors, upper floor dormers and front gates were painstakingly and thoroughly prepared (the secret to all quality finishes) prior to application of appropriate metal protective coatings or undercoats followed by two or three coats of paint as required. The look and feel of the finished job is excellent. Jake took his time to ensure that every line and every border was true. All paint used was high quality Dulux Weathershield and which will provide long term protection. My wife and I are over the moon with how this work has transformed the look of our home. I will be asking Jake Donald Painter & Decorator to return at some point in the future to carry out further home improvements. Thank you, Jake.

Excellent level of service from a polite and courteous team at my elderly mother's house. Turned up when they said they would, kept in contact, did the work that was agreed to a very good standard. Would highly recommend Jake to anyone who needs a painter. Would definitely use his skills again.

Review Comments
Jake is a very amiable, pleasant and courteous guy. I got him to repaint the eaves of my house. The work was hampered by the monsoon season at the end of June but he managed to negotiate that very well. The job was made difficult by a) the eaves are made of plywood and during the work several layers came away and b) over the years I have touched them up by daubing black paint on them to leave the paint very thick in places. When they were sanded they were very rough. Jake filled them and they looked very smooth. The first cut looked ok but they weren't good enough for him so he had a second fill of them and a repaint so they look really good. He was going to leave his scaffolding in the back garden and pick it up a couple of days later. A chance comment of my wife was wishing for her garden back resulted in them being removed straightaway. That indicates excellent customer-awareness and customer-focus. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again or recommend to a friend.

Jake done an excellent job of decorating my living room, hallway and master bedroom - he was prepared to make himself available at short-notice and no job was too big or small. The work was completed earlier than the timescales initially quoted and I'm very happy with the end product. Would definitely use again!

Jake did an excellent job of painting my drawing room and sorting out some damage done to the ceiling by dampness. He is a very friendly, helpful young man and he left my flat clean and tidy after completion. I have already decided to employ him again to decorate my bedroom and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
