“I can’t praise Sean enough for the splendid job he did for us! We had a whole 4 bedroom house to paint and decorate which included painting the walls,ceilings , all the woodwork and creating 3 feature walls. Sean was so meticulous, helpful and dedicated. He finished the job well within the timeframe and in fact did a lot more than we initially discussed. There was no fuss at all about anything.His positive and can do attitude made the humoungus task of painting so un-stressful. We had a dependency on the bedrooms being done by a certain date so that the carpets could then be fitted. Sean was so accommodative that he finished those rooms first and well within schedule which enabled us to get the carpet man as planned. Where I was especially pleased with Sean was that he helped me with interior designing ideas as well, right from choosing the wallpaper to colour of paint etc. In a nutshell if you are thinking of painting and decorating and you want quality work done, think Sean Power!”

Smrutha Santhosh

“This is the 3rd time Sean has worked for me and he really is the only guy I trust to deliver the standard I require. A 5 week complete house redecoration on a large 5 bedroom house, also included feature walls in multiple rooms using Brian Yates wallpaper, plus hand painted kitchen units and hand painted office units. I couldn’t be more pleased with the end result, the finish is incredible and nothing short of a show home! I’ve recommended Sean to many of my friends and family as I’m so impressed with the quality of his work, attention to detail and reliability.”

Graham Weinberg

“Sean was so helpful right from the start. He was honest and filled me full of confidence from the first phone call. Sean wallpapered a feature wall in our living room to a fantastic standard, worked cleanly, was very punctual and is definitely a perfectionist. Lovely guy too. Very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend him and would be happy to use him again.”

Helen Buck

“Sean Power (the Proprietor) was professional, punctual, always very clean (using dust sheets where appropriate) and we are very pleased with the results. He more or less, decorated the whole of our house in two weeks, keeping to a strict timetable. He kept us well informed about what he had completed and what he was going to complete the following day so we were aware of wet paint areas we had to avoid. He was very trustworthy and we had no worries about leaving him alone in the house with a key to let himself in and out. He also had to cope with three very furry cats milling around! I would thoroughly recommend him.”

Diane Green

“Sean and Craig were excellent throughout. Extremely clean and tidy, everything we asked them to do was carried out perfectly and we couldn’t be happier with the end result. Lovely guys too and it was a pleasure to have them in our house.”

Paul Whibley

“You couldn’t meet a more friendly man! Sean worked at my house all week, the standard of his painting was very high with great attention to detail. Nothing was too much trouble he went above and beyond what was expected. He was always punctual and was very neat and tidy whilst working too. He is a genuine, honest and hard working man and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”

Kate Barker

“Sean did a fantastic job! He decorated our kitchen, 2 reception rooms, 2 bedrooms and the hall, stairs & landing. He completed the work in 6 weeks. His work was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. He was helpful and offered us advice. He’s a really nice person – totally trustworthy and a pleasure to have in our home. We would certainly use him again and would definitely recommend. Thank you Sean! Frank and Kim”

Frank Nolan

“From the start Sean listened to what I was after, he also made some suggestions using his wealth of experience and they turned out to be spot on. Most importantly the wallpapering was immaculate and the cutting in was very very good. I’m a perfectionist but we were in safe hands, Sean is a perfectionist himself. All the things that i worried about hiring a decorator, were workmanship, trust, personable and approachable, Sean is genuinely all of these. I would hire him again no question. Thanks again Sean :)”

Lisa Godfrey

“Sean painted my lounge and did a first class job – he is a real perfectionist. I found him trustworthy, friendly and very helpful (nothing was too much trouble). He made sure everything was clean & tidy every day and was very respectful of my home. Highly recommended”

Christine Vann

“Sean has done an outstanding job painting my lounge, he clearly takes pride in his work. Nothing was too much trouble, he was friendly and respectful and a pleasure to have in my home. I would not hesitate to recommend him, in fact I have booked him again!”

Charmane Petty

“From the initial meeting to provide a quote all the way until the end, Sean has been professional, reliable and a perfectionist in his work. He did 2 toilets, bathroom, 2 landings, staircase and the whole of downstairs. From lining and repairing walls to offering sound & professional advice, Sean is the best I’ve seen. His attention to detail and his client is remarkable! Will be calling him back when we need more done, and will highly recommend him. Top bloke!”

Sanjay Gadhia

“It’s ridiculous to describe a decorator as perfect, but with Sean there can be no other word to describe his work. He did three bedrooms in our house, stripped, lined, prepared and painted every surface, and protected the carpets and furniture as diligently as you could wish. I would not hesitate to recommend this service. First class.”
