We have used Carl several times now, and would certainly recommend him. He has done a great job of our bedroom and bathroom. Very professional and really reasonable rates. It took him two days, and doing it ourselves would have been really messy, and would probably have taken us nearer to two weeks. Great job again Carl!
Carl has just painted our lounge hall and stairs for us, we left him to it as we were away for the weekend, and he has done a super job. Both my husband and I were really pleased with the quality of his work, how quickly he completed the job and his reasonable prices. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and we shall be asking him to come back and do our kitchen for us too. Great bloke!
Carl is back for the second time, some seven years ago he painted out kitchen, dinning room, lounge and hall stairs and landing (3 stores) the work was of such a high standard that is continues to look like new. When we decided to have two of our bedrooms painted and balustrade revived we had no hesitation in asking Carl to come back. He once again applied his eye to detail and we have a job that we are relighted with. The work is of the highest standard his his approach to detail is, in my opinion, something that sets him apart from other painters and decorators. When you add his engaging personality, and his ability to communicate and understand what is required it makes having in your home a pleasure. I have no hesitation in in recommending Carl and have now got him to speak to my son about work that he needs done.
Carl has just finished my kitchen, dining room and utility and we are absolutely thrilled with his work. His attention to detail is fantastic and he takes great pride in his work. Carl is also a lovely, decent chap and I never had any hesitations about giving him a key and letting him come and go while we were out. We're so happy to now how a beautiful, gleaming kitchen and dining room to show off. Next job is the hall, stairs, landing - so we'll be in touch soon! Very reasonable pricing too - so great news for me is I won't be attempting to ever do any painting myself again in the future...! ;)
If your looking for a painter and decorator then Carl is your man. Carl has just finished our hall, stairs and landing & has done a brilliant job. He goes through everything with you & explains what he's doing as he goes along. Very competitive prices. Absolutely thrilled to bits with the job he's done & have already booked him to do the kitchen. Nobody enjoys having work done but Carl was a pleasure to have.
I called for a quote and was asked to text a remind him of our appointment, okay fair enough and so day before I text to remind him. The text included time and address. After waiting 35 minutes after our arranged time I called and was called back by him. I was told that he had completely forgotten our arranged meeting for a quote. Fair enough people have things going on in their lives. but so do I.
Carl has just completed a large contract for ourselves(Wilcox plumbing and heating ltd). This job required a high calibre decorator in which we automatically turned to Carl. Carl has contracted his services to our company for many years and has all ways proved reliable and trust worthy. If your after an honest hardworking tradesman who is always on time, leaves the job clean and tidy with a quality finish call Carl!
Last month Carl papered my lounge/dining room. A great job resulted and in the same spirit as his name was given to me, I am very happy to recommend him to others. In this day and age I found it refreshing that he did what he said he would do and didn't try to vary the price on completion of the job, something that seems rare nowadays from talking to friends. I am more than happy with his work and will be employing him again in the early part of 2016. Thank you very much Carl.
I would like to thank Carl for the excellent work he has done for me again he never fails to deliver and it is always done to a high standard. I know its been extremely hard for him over the past few months with the loss of his mom and having to juggle his work so a BIG thank you for what you've done.see you soon!!

I needed my hall stairs and landing painting to complete the refurbishment of my home. I wanted to hire a professional as the walls were a real mess and I wouldn't be able to get near the finish I wanted. I called Carl and he was able to complete the work in the time scale given. For my convenience Carl did most of the work while I was away. I was happy to leave him my key as fully trust him. The final result is excellent and I would recommend his services.

Carl completed a freshen up of a rental bungalow for us this year. He was able to complete the work within the required window with no hassle for me. I simply gave him a key and he worked long days and a weekend to ensure the work was completed on time. Thank you for your hard graft Carl.
Carl has just finished our kitchen and dining room. Fabulous! Coved, painted and glossed to a really high standard; and at a price that was really competitive. This is the 2nd piece of work we've had done by Carl (see review earlier in the year). We wouldn't have him back if we weren't thrilled. Good tradesman are hard to find and in Carl we have total trust. We even leave him alone in our home all day when required - this is a measure of his honesty. Looking forward to finalising a date in early 2016 for when he can do the lounge (price already quoted and agreed). Wouldn't look anywhere else now for a painter/decorator.
Where to start? If I could give this fellow less than one star I would. We booked him to redecorate our whole flat, he gave us a date, the date came and Carl didn't show. "I'm very sorry" Carl says "I had a lot going on and forgot and I lost my diary" OK, second chance, gave us another date, date rolls round and guess what? Carl states on the phone "Oh no, I said the week after, I'm trying to help you and I'm getting agitated with you now!" Unknown to Carl we have CCTV that caught his lies! Well your agitated Carl? Let me tell you that we cleared all the rooms for you, arranged for our daughter to stay at grannies and have been living out of boxes waiting more than TWO MONTHS for you to do what you promised you would! DO NOT TRUST! THIS MAN IS A LIAR!

Carl has recently painted the exterior of our house and we are delighted with the result. He is a real professional with lots of experience and expertise. His prices are competitive and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others. Sian
Carl has recently just finished painting the exterior of my house and I have to say has done it to an extremely high standard. Friends and family have commented how good the work is and the house has been transformed. Carl possesses many qualities such as a strong work ethic, punctuality, cleanliness, good communication and is extremely trustworthy. These qualities I have found are often lacking in many tradesmen today but not in Carl. Along with his expert advice, knowledge of the right paints and products and his high standard of finish this makes him the perfect man for the job. Thank you Carl. I will definitely use you again for a number of other jobs I have planned and will be recommended to anyone we know who needs a decorator. Dan W from Walton-on-the-Hill
Carl has just finished painting one of my bedrooms at home, which included a bit of preparation, as well as painting ceiling, walls and paintwork. He has been friendly, polite, professional and precise with his work and has completed the job very efficiently. He's very clean in his work and tidies up after himself each day. He didn't even complain when he had to put 5 coats of paint on one wall! I am thrilled with the result and the cost was less than I expected. Thank you Carl, I will definitely be asking you to do more work for me... maybe the kitchen next! :o)
We needed some work doing on our stairs and landing. This was bannister, walls, coving, papering, sanding etc. I reviewed painters and decorators from Best Of Cannock, Walsall, Lichfield, Rugeley and Stafford and invited 5 to provide me quotes. Carl was the most competitive in terms of price, but not only that I felt at ease with him and the answers that he provided to my queries were just what I was looking for. He spent all of last week with us and we're thrilled with the results. His time-keeping was immaculate. The one day he was going to be 10 minutes late and he called to apologise that he was running 10 minutes behind his scheduled 9am start time! That's really thoughtful. His work ethic is very good and he cleans up after himself daily. Most importantly though, he's just a damned good painter and decorator. Would we have him back? That's the acid test. Yes, he's already booked in for the beginning of July to do the Kitchen and Dining Room. Thanks Carl; we'll be seeing more of easch other soon!!
Carl has recently completed decorating my lounge, and I am delighted with the result. Carl is a very hard working professional guy. Always polite friendly and helpful. I have booked Carl to return in a couple of weeks to work on the Hall Stairs and Landing. I would highly recommend him.
If you need a painter/decorator Carl is your man. We just had our first house with the people living there before being chain smokers, we started to paint the walls which all started to bubble and blister and we had Carl come in and he sorted all this out for us. We had Carl to do pretty much all of our house including kitchen units and he has turned our home into a show home. I cant thank Carl enough, he is one helpful, polite, hardworking guy. We left him our house key and he just sorted it all out for us. I will use Carl in the future and i recommend you do to.
Would highly recommend Carl to anyone looking to have painting and decorating done he has done a fantastic job painting our hall,stairs, landing, ceilings, kitchen and outside our house. He is very professional and friendly and his work is very neat and tidy. We would definatley have Carl back again to do more painting/decorating for us.
We asked Carl to quote us for our Hall, Stairs and Landing and also Lounge and Dinning Room. He did the Hall, stairs and Landing and said to see what we thought of his work before quoting for the other rooms. We could not fault his work in any way. His conscientious approach and attention to detail could not be faulted. We will certainly be using him again and will not hesitate in recommending him to others.
Carl recently decorated our hall, stairs and landing and did an excellent job. He was friendly and always arrived on time and when he said he would. He was professional and gave very good advice. We had no hesitation in leaving our keys with Carl whilst we were at work and returned every day to a clean, tidy and vacuumed hall, stairs and landing. We would definitely use Carl again and would not hesitate in recommending his workmanship to others.
