This is the second job Malcolm and his team have done for me very recently and once again I am absolutely delighted with the outcome. Always turned up when expected and nice and early each date and just got onwith the job. Cleaned up when they finished at the end of each day. Excellent workmanship and the attention to detail particularly when wallpapering was much appreciated. Thanks again.

I am really happy with the work that Malcolm and his team have done in my living room and kitchen. Malcolm is easy to contact and is a great communicator who takes pride in his business and rightly so. Michael, who was assigned to my home, was always on time and quietly went about his work all day. He made a beautiful job.
While the works were quite expensive I would admit that it was definitely worth it and I am already planning on getting Malcolm and the team back later this year for my hallway.

Malcolm Bell's service was excellent from start to finish.

Turned up on time showed my home the greatest of respect by cleaning up afterwards every evening.
Offered practical advice on the job which turned out to be invaluable!

More importantly the advice was based on what was best for myself and not any other reason.

Very easy to chat to and has a nice bunch of lads who work their socks off.

In short if you wish straight talking honest advice here's your team you want to hire.

Malcolm painted my hall (walls, ceilings and banister). The quality of the work was absolutely excellent. Old holes in the wall were filled in and these have completely disappeared leaving a great finish. Malcolm was also very reliable and professional, quickly responding to any queries. I would highly recommend this trader.

Malcolm and his team were able to accommodate me at short notice and did a brilliant job stripping wallpaper, preparing and lining the walls. Everything that we discussed was delivered on time, within the previously agreed budget and communication was prompt and to the point. The team were punctual and polite and they worked really hard to deliver the great results. On completion walls were left looking perfect and flat tided leaving me with very little to other than enjoying the results. I would recommend Malcolm to everyone looking for a decorator and will certainly be using him again.

Malcolm and his team did a first class job of painting outside windows and doors. The workers are very thorough and considerate and take pride in the finished product. Malcolm is also good at sourcing other trades if required. Highly recommended.

I highly commend Malcolm and his team. Very nice and easy to deal with from start to finish. You could always get hold of him to discuss things and turned up when expected. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding and the attention to detail, in particular, was excellent. Will definitely be using Malcolm again for another room in my house. Thank you very much - my lounge looks outstanding and I am extremely pleasedwith it. Roll on the bathroom !.

We called Malcolm based on very good trusted trader reviews and he lived up to these on our job in April. We wanted our 20ft sitting/dining room stripped and decorated, but also needed some carpentry and plumbing. Malcolm provided recommendations for the other trades and coordinated their input which made things much easier for us. Gary (carpenter) and Graeme (plumbing) were very friendly and their work was excellent quality. We will certainly call on all of them for future jobs. Malcolm was extremely helpful making recommendations about how best to tackle bits of the job and the joins in his lining paper are invisible! Brendan and he were friendly, efficient and tidied up each night to limit any inconvenience. We were entirely comfortable with them in the house. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Malcolm and his contacts to friends and family.

Contacted Malcolm and he managed fit us in at short notice to repair a hole in our bathroom wall and paint it. We couldn't be more pleased with the results, you wouldn't known there had been a problem to begin with. Malcolm was friendly and professional from beginning to end and communicated clearly with us, letting us know exactly what the job would entail. His apprentice was also friendly and perfectly competent and. The job was very fairly priced considering the high quality of work we received. Would 100% hire him again and reccommend his services to anyone considering.

I got my flat fully refurbished / painted and employed Malcolm Bell's company to transform my sad looking flat into a fresh looking apartment fit for holiday letting. Malcolm Bell was professional from beginning to end. He gave me great advice on what was needed. He also helped to coordinate other tradesmen - plumbers, joiners, etc to ensure the works were done according to the plan he laid down at the onset. I'm happy to recommend Malcolm, and will use him again in the future.

Malcolm is a very friendly, reliable man who, along with his team painted our family room and bedroom to a very high standard. The wallpaper also looks great and we are very pleased with the end result. Malcolm managed to fit us in at short notice, despite being busy at this time of year. We will be using Malcolm in the future for further redecoration work.

You'll find cheaper quotes but you won't get a better quality job. My living room cornice, ceiling, walls and fire surround have been painted perfectly. I am pain-in-the neck fussy so if I'm delighted it's saying something. I have no qualms about recommending Malcolm.

Excellent service, good communicator, excellent preparation and finishing.
Not the cheapest estimate but good value for money. Good to have around, takes a pride in his work and has excellent contacts with support tradesmen such as joiners/glaziers.
