1st Class Painting and Decorating in Coventry is a quality service with a big difference to most!

So what sets me apart from the rest and why should you choose me?

Firstly Im not just a basic decorator, often my work can be more compared to light cosmetic renovation. I do deep repairs to cracks to try and stop them coming back with a very high success rate. Also, I resurface walls so often no need for a separate plasterer when full plastering really isn’t actually needed.

I can and do make old look like brand new.

All dado rails were removed, coving repaired & walls were resurfaced to look like new plaster

Choosing a painter and decorator can be a difficult and at times daunting task. Knowing whom to trust for various reasons, determining whether the work will be done accurately, as well as wondering whether it will be to a high standard is a tricky business.

Horror stories of the trusting public getting ripped off and taken for a ride are unfortunately commonplace in this industry and you don’t want to be one of them!

SO WHY CHOOSE ME? – some questions to ask!

1) Do you give a guarantee?

Yes – As an accredited Dulux Select Decorator & TrustMark a Government endorsed & Trading standards approved scheme I can offer up to a 24-month guarantee.

2) Is this guarantee backed-up by anyone or is it just your word?

My work is covered by both the Dulux Select and TrustMark accreditation scheme. So if for any reason you aren’t 100% satisfied Dulux and TrustMark are there to ensure it is put right!

3) What if the painting & decorating service provider go out of business?

Business is thriving for 1st Class Painting and Decorating so there is no danger of that. However, if that were ever to happen Dulux and TrustMark would still cover my work. The guarantee is underwritten and therefore not just a meaningless false promise of a guarantee. So you’d never be left in the lurch no matter what. 

Trust in getting what you pay for

Not only do I have years of experience, expertise and most importantly, satisfied customers, I am also a Dulux Select Decorator and TrustMark Association Approved. These are like the golden seals of approval. I have been fully assessed by industry specialists to ensure that my work is of the highest standard.

What this means for you is that you can get a 24-month guarantee with my work. Underwritten by Dulux themselves on all work completed with Dulux Trade Products.

If you want a trusted professional who will deliver a first-class product with a premium finish look no further. I’m results focused and motivated by giving you the best product and experience of having your home decorated.

Meet Paul

At last, a decorator we can trust!

Paul decorated all of our ground floor rooms whilst we were away on holiday. We returned to find a perfect finish, house tidy and all our furniture taken care of. Paul also repaired a large section of damaged plaster, re-hung cupboards and sorted out a damp corner. Paul’s attention to detail is astounding its great to work with such a perfectionist. We would and have highly recommended Paul to our family and friends and will using him again for other rooms.

Best Decorator in Warwickshire!

Well Paul cannot be faulted on any aspect of his decorating and how he manages his clients needs. Reliable, punctual, personable and his attention to detail is second to none. We have never been disappointed with his work and would always recommend spending that little bit more for a professional job.

5 star google reviewsThis is the third time we’ve used Paul (1st Class Painting and Decorating) and this was probably the biggest job of the three. The job this time was to completely redecorate a through lounge/diner with stairs leading off to an upstairs landing and a small porch by the front door. To state that Paul is a perfectionist in everything he does would be an understatement, in fact I’m starting to run out of superlatives to describe his work. It’s Paul’s attention to detail and the additional little things that he does on the side which make him truly exceptional, e.g fashioning bespoke plastic ducting to hide wiring, fixing door latches and creating a brand new window sill lip for us. Paul’s work is outstanding and the final result utterly breathtaking, this guy knows his trade inside out and back to front and it shows. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Paul to anybody and we will definitely be using him again in the future. Thanks for another 1st class job Paul.

Matthew Livingstone5 star google reviewsI recently appointed Paul to decorate bedrooms, hall stairs landing, office, lounge and dining room. It was a large job with many challenges but nothing is beyond Paul’s ability. His 20 years experience combined with his enthusiasm, knowledge and desire to put the customer first was very evident throughout the work. A friendly, trustworthy and hard working decorator; it was a pleasure to have him do the work and I would wholeheartedly recommend him. A very dedicated tradesman who is a credit to his profession.

5 star google reviewsThis painter/decorator’s work is excellent. His attention to detail is exceptional. He will make small repairs that are not apparent until he has started work, this helps to make the finished product so much better.
