Painting and Decorating Reviews

Michael recently decorated the communal areas of a retirement development and he was an excellent choice. He worked quietly and discreetly. His work is professional, very neat and tidy and kept corridors clear as access was restricted at times to the owners. He was reliable, started work on time and was happy to take on extra work when asked He was friendly, courteous and polite at all times. I understand that he has been offered extra work from a few owners in their own properties which shows what high regard they have for him and his work. Highly recommended. This was a difficult job as colours and ideas kept changing before the start of work, however, he was able to take all of that on board and in the end helped with the colour choices.

Having seen the excellent work Mike undertook on a neighbour's house, I asked Mike to quote and subsequently decorate the hall, stairs and landings in my three storey town house. The results were outstanding and subsequently Mike tiled my hallway, again with outstanding results. Mike's quotes are very competitive, his workmanship is excellent, he's very amiable and hardworking, completely trustworthy, he always keeps you updated on matters, always clears up after himself and is well worth consulting on ideas. I can't recommend him highly enough and will definitely be engaging with Mike again.

Marcus - Buckingham

Our work comprised the complete internal decoration of a 4-bedroom bungalow (mostly painting, but including some wall-papering and tiling), making and installing shelving, some outside painting, making and installing a new side gate, and various other odd jobs. Mike gave a prompt and detailed estimate which was reasonably priced. When he carried out the work Mike worked rapidly but always to a high professional standard. He left the house tidy at the end of each day. Mike is very conscientious, pleasant to deal with and completely trustworthy. We have no hesitation in recommending Mike to others, and he will be our automatic choice in the future.

Michael - Launton

Mike was great. He viewed the house and quoted the job really quickly. We had a really tight deadline and he worked really hard to meet it. He gave us great advices. We left him in our house with the key and we could trust him. He always cleaned the treated areas without leaving any mess and/or causing us any inconvenience. Furthermore, we scratched freshly painted areas and he come back to fix it without any hassle. Brilliant.

Mrs Cholton - Botley

Mike decorated the house including walls, some ceilings, skirtings and door frames and windows. He did a very thorough job. Mike worked very intelligently long days. He is very pedantic and made sure everything was left clean.

Mike is excellent, if your looking for a decorator, he's your man! 

Will be having him back to do our kitchen!

R.McCaffery - Banbury

Mike did a great job painting our fitted wardrobes and various odd jobs around our house. His quality of finish is excellent and he undertook a number of difficult jobs that we had been avoiding! He was always very punctual and we would highly recommend him.

Solid Wood Flooring - Mike has done an excellent job for us making attractive dark oak cupboard doors, re-hanging other cupboards and in laying a new wooden floor. We are delighted with all of the work. Mike was patient, careful, punctual and worked hard to produce very good results. I thoroughly recommend Mike to anyone needing carpentry, and indeed a host of other house improvement services.

Mike and team painted all our external woodwork, and we have a lot of it, this included hiring a cherry picker! He was excellent value for money and we hardly new he was here. He very quietly went about doing a first class job. We will be using him again

Amanda - Buckingham

Mike was fantastic from the outset. He viewed the job and quoted quickly giving great advice. His workmanship is excellent along with his communication throughout the job. He put the hours in to finish within our time scales and was a real pleasure to use. Value for money was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. A great advert for a modern tradesman with old fashioned values.

robert Bruce - Bicester

Mike is polite, punctual, professional & a pleasure to have in one's home. He provides a detailed quote, not just a figure plucked from nowhere. He recently re-decorated our kitchen following a minor flood & did an excellent job of the ceilings, walls & woodwork & takes great care of surrounding surfaces. I trust him implicitly & highly recommend him. I now want him to do the rest of the house!

Mrs Harvey - Launton

Mike has done a fantastic job at our place. We first met him when he came to give us a quote. He was punctual and provided a thorough and carefully considered quote covering all costs (labour and paint etc). He has worked at our place for about three weeks. He has always turned up on time (even though he travels 20 miles to do the job) and a exceptionally careful and respectful of the home owners environment. I often work from home and he is very quiet, indeed I hardly knew he was there. He takes a great pride in his work and will not finish a piece of work until it is perfect. Mike is very trustworthy. Due to work commitments we have left Mike alone in the house all day - he is utterly trustworthy. He has transformed the look of our house, A thoroughly nice guy who we strongly recommend. We will be having him back to do other things later in the year. Thanks Mike - great job!

A.Grant-Reed - Milton Keynes

Worked persistently and consistently throughout. He was happy to answer any queries we had about the job he was doing and did things only after we had agreed on things. He also charges reasonably. I would recommend Mike to do any painting jobs in any house, simply because I know he delivers what he promises and is reasonable and trustworthy person.

Dr.DK Balakrishnan -Milton Keynes

"WOW" Mike is such a perfectionist and takes pride in all he does. We are so pleased with Mike's decorating and the stair railing he put up is just unbelievable. We can't wait to move into our new home. Would definitely recommend Mike (Oxfordshire Decorating services) for your jobs. Many thanks Mike we are sure to see you again". 

Paul & Ann-Marie - Bicester

Oxfordshire Decorating Services had decorated my entire house and conservatory, laid wood flooring through my kitchen, breakfast area, hall and downstairs toilet, as well as trimming doors, creating a shelf, boxing in pipes and many other bits and bobs. Mike has been fantastic, he is very professional and thoughtful, always asking questions to ensure everything meets my requirements. He has also put up with my cats trailing him around and causing him to repaint a few window sills! Thank you Mike for your patience and all the very hard work you put in, my new decor is fantastic and the flooring is spectacular!
