I couldn't recommend Jake and his team enough. He was punctual, friendly, professional and took time to talk through options with no job being too small or fiddly. He kept in touch throughout the job and the standard of work was excellent. Very happy customer!

Jake Donald is a very professional and experienced painter and decorator. He leads a small, friendly and hard-working team that work very well together. Their work is to a very high standard and they are punctual and tidy. Before the start Jake discussed the proposed work and quickly provided a thorough and detailed quotation. When the work got underway he had attention to detail, offered advice, solved problems that arose and clearly explained what he was going to do at each stage of the process.
We are delighted with the results and are pleased that Jake is going to do further work for us. We have no hesitation in recommending Jake Donald to others.

Another fine job from Jake (with his team this time). Landing, stairs, and hall stripped, prepared, painted, and papered in three days! As always, Jake arrived on time, did the work he said he'd do each day, and left the house clean and tidy at the end of each day.

Jake and his team made an excellent job of painting the outside of our house last week. They were very reliable, professional and efficient while at the same time being friendly and considerate. We are delighted with their work and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Jake is a credit to his profession - diligent, thorough, reliable and trustworthy. He did two jobs for us - painting and decorating two bedrooms, and also our hallway and stairs, and we are very happy with the results. Jake is by no means the cheapest, but you really do get what you pay for - and there are plenty of slap-it-up merchants out there, whose work you will be redoing in two or three years' time. I can unreservedly recommend Jake, as well as the people he had working with him - not only did they all turn up when they said they would, they tidied up afterwards. Hire with confidence!

Jake was recommended to us by a friend. He carried out an exceptional job painting the gutters, drainpipes, suffix, window sills and surrounds of our house. He was punctual and tidy. He is a very pleasant young adult and we found for his age he is very experienced and knowledgeable about his work. We will have no issue asking him again to do work for us and would highly recommend him to other people.

Jake is reliable, trustworthy, honest, professional and very capable. I've known Jake for many years going back to his time as an apprentice and have used him several times. Now he's working for himself I'd have no hesitation in using him as I have or in recommending him. His attention to detail is second to none and his work is always spot on.

Jake shows up on time, does a huge amount of work each day, and the place is tidy when he leaves

I asked Jake Donald to refresh all of the white paintwork in my Victorian flat. He called to see the flat and gave an estimate for the work required with precise details of what he would do. I accepted the estimate and the work was carried out to my entire satisfaction. I did not have to make any arrangements before he started workl. He is a very pleasant person who I immediately knew I could trust and he worked solidly for three days without taking any breaks. There wasn't a spot of paint where it shouldn't have been. and everything was put back in place. I had little interruption to my normal way of life. I have engaged him again jobs. Iarmly reccomend the use of his services. Ken Wilkie

As others have already said, Jake did a great job when, in our case, decorating our kitchen. He came on time, did a neat job while working, and left us with a usable kitchen each evening, and job was completed on time and to a high standard. We will certainly be using him again in the near future

Jake was a thoroughly nice young man who worked very hard and did an excellent job. It was a pleasure having him in the house to do work for us. He gave us a fair realistic quote and completed the job to a high standard. I would definitely ask him to work for us again and recommend his painting and decorating

Very pleasant individual, job included high eaves and Jake managed to reach all the awkward places. Job done quickly, and efficiently.
Price was as estimate and time taken less than quoted. I would recommend Jake to anyone looking for a quality tradesman.

Jake did a really good job doing the exterior painting of my house and this included minor repairs to the cladding before applying the wood stain on the dormar windows. He was on time, careful, and very polite and courteous. I would have no hesitation in using him again or recommending him. Very professional.

Mr Donald is an outstanding professional.
Inside painting and wall papering & external painting completed to perfection, with thorough attention to detail and end result of highest standard. An older property, with uneven walls and levels was no problem as Mr Donald is very adept at lateral thinking and problem solving. He may be young but his knowledge, experience, skill and enterprise is remarkable.
Quotation and all communication fast and easy. Mr Donald is totally reliable, punctual, polite, friendly and extremely helpful. The customer service he provides and the quality of his workmanship is outstanding.
The house was kept at all times very tidy, clean and vacuumed.
Outstanding painter & decorator.

We have used Jake twice now for decorating jobs in our home. On both occasions the work has been carried out to an extremely high standard. Quotation was arranged quickly and easily. Jake is professional, hard working and has great attention to detail. He is friendly, reliable, punctual and competitively priced. Excellent service and workmanship. We would highly recommend and would definitely use again.
