We had Colin paint all of the interior of our house. He gave us a fair estimate which he kept to. The quality of the work was excellent and his team were always on time, very tidy, really good decorators and very nice people. We would highly recommend Murray Decorating and will be using them in future. Jim and Hazel
We used Murray Decorating to paint our house we recently moved into and Colin was able to do the work at short notice. He was extremely professional and cared about ensuring the decorating was up to a high standard. He gave a quote at the beginning of the job and that did not change after the work was finished. I would highly recommend Murray Decorating and will use them again in the future.

I have used Murray Decorating several times. They are very good indeed.
Our house in Ealing needed a total overhaul. We made a decision to go with Murray Decorators due to seeing good reviews on their work, obtaining a good professional feeling from Colin when he came out to provide a quotation as well as the thorough quotation breakdown. A date was set probably 9 months in advance as we had a small window of opportunity to re-decorate. Colin totally honoured this date. The whole house (5 bedrooms, 2 receptions, kitchen, bathrooms) was totally re-decorated by them. The team were extremely professional, friendly and listened to and understood our requirements. Communication was excellent. They did a full day’s work, coming in on time and tidied up after themselves. They didn’t cut corners and did the work the right way, such as putting on 2 coats of paint and spending time doing the prep work. We are delighted by the result of their work and would highly recommend them.
My partner and I recently bought our first house and were keen to give it a fresh coat of paint before we moved in. I trawled through the internet looking for a recommended company to use in Ealing and came across Murray Decorating on this site - other peoples reviews/experiences are the way to go these days with so many different companies (and varying standards of work unfortunately) around to choose from.
Colin was extremely helpful from start to finish, he gave a fair quote an managed to book the work in to our limited time frames. He had a team of 4 men come in on the Saturday and had prepared and painted the walls and ceilings throughout (3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, lounge dining room) by Sunday.
The initial quote did not change either as some companies do once the work has been completed..
I am really pleased with the standard of service received and would highly recommend Colin Murray and his team to anyone needing a good quality and reliable painter/decorating service.
We used Colin Murray to decorate the outside of our house. Everything went extremely well. The quote was reasonable and fair and he stuck to it. The workers he used were efficient, friendly and courteous and the whole job was completed to our satisfaction. When a couple of minor problems arose, eg some guttering needed replacing, Colin quickly found someone to do this job at a very reasonable price. We will definitely be using Colin again and I'm happy to recommend him.

They recently painted the side and back of my house. As a retired surveyor I am happy to recommend them. They did a good job, tidied up after themselves and were pleasant to have around.
We recently used Colin Murray to decorate our whole house top to bottom. The quote was very competitive, the friendly crew turned up every day on time and finished the job on time and to spec. It's hard to find local reliable tradesman these days and we will certainly be using them again in the future.
I booked Murray Decorating to decorate my lounge, hallway, stairs and landing.
It was a big job, the walls needed plastering in the lounge and there were 3 layers of wallpaper in the hall/landing, there was a lot of repair work and bad surfaces.
Colin and his staff have totally transformed the entrance to this big 30's era house and I will be using them for the rest of the restoration work.
He used up to 4 workers which meant the job was done in 9 days - as promised and the price was competitive.
I would recommend them to my friends.

We were very pleased with the price and results when Murray Decorating recently painted our staircase and hallway. The ceiling is particularly high and difficult to tackle and they did a great job.
We recently used Murray Decorating to repair our dining room and kitchen doors. They also replaced our bottom sash windows in 2 rooms and decorated our bedroom and en suite bathroom. The whole job took just over 2 weeks. They arrived on time each day, were tidy and the work completed was excellent. You could definately trust them to be in your house. James Murray is a carpenter and his father Colin Murray runs the decorating side of the business which makes for a good combination.
Fixing up the house during the warmer month makes good sense, with less rain, hopefully, and more daylight hours in which to do the work.
Much depends on how much you plan to do, the condition of the...
