If we have any works again large or small, we will call on the Painting Partnership first, and hope that they can fit us in!
New kitchen, utility room, bathroom, boiler, water system and floors, completed Jan 2021
The Painting Partnership initially quoted to replace our 30 year old boiler & spruce up our utility room (on a par with other quotes and miles cheaper than British Gas,) but we decided to expand the work to cover a complete new downstairs bathroom with Japanese loo, fitted utility room, pressurised megaflo water system, a new kitchen with all new appliances, and to cover the old flagstone floors with a levelling coat and a herringbone Amtico floor.
The job was priced in advance and completed on budget and pretty much on time. This was no mean feat in a 200 year old property (without a square wall anywhere and full of surprises (and never good ones!)) and in the middle of a pandemic.
This was a major job, and we are very happy to unreservedly recommend David Van Gelder and his Painting Partnership. The finished result is beyond expectations. From the outset David and Adam spent a great deal of time with us, helping us explore the options and advising on alternatives. This was not a ‘pre sales’ job, the customer care continued all the way through, and as an example, when we switched the floor pattern, David arrived clutching some sample tiles to lay out in various rooms, just to make sure that it would look as good as we hoped.
Although we sourced our own appliances, David’s team checked the specs of everything and offered their opinions if something didn’t look quite right, or if an alternative might have been better – and they were always right. Knowing that they were on top of the detail was a huge comfort to us, and made the job completely painless. Communication throughout was faultless and nothing seemed too much trouble – the tradesmen involved were professional, friendly and all, without exception, took enormous pride in their work.
A particular challenge was the internal ducting for a self-venting Bosch hob built into the peninsula. Bosch, while their products are great, were worse than useless at providing customer support, and David’s team could well have been forgiven for a ‘not my problem’ approach. Instead David spent hours on calls to suppliers and Bosch engineers before obtaining the correct parts and fitting the ducting, which required alterations to 4 cabinets to accommodate it. This says it all about the Painting Partnership.
As a final comment, the job has been completely finished, completely decorated and with no loose ends. It was only then that we received the final invoice.
"The works were carried out to the highest quality" "Would highly recommend them!"
The Painting Partnership carried out two jobs for us, replacing kitchen cabinets and replacing the old small sink to a bigger sink and replacing a bathroom vanity unit and bath panel. The works were carried out to the highest quality and the team made sure they cleaned up after themselves. We were short of time and did not have time to shop around. They did the leg work for us and presented us with a number of options and we were able to select the one we wanted. Would highly recommend them!
"Everything was carried out with the utmost professionalism and efficiency"
The Painting Partnership provided extensive services as part of our kitchen re-fitment. The work entailed a wide range of skills, from plumbing and electrical works to final decoration and completion of related operations.
Everything was carried out with the utmost professionalism and efficiency. Every one of the firm’s staff were mindful of the potential disruption that the works would inevitably cause and their operations were undertaken with the minimum of fuss and fastidious cleanliness.
I would have little hesitation in recommending this firm. Their standard of work and standards were exemplary.
"Huge thank you for the professionalism and high standards you have displayed"
“I wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Darren for the professionalism and high standards you have displayed. Darren, whilst on site, has been nothing but polite and courteous and has worked so neatly and cleanly. I’ve been hugely impressed with his work ethic and felt comfortable allowing him access in and out of the house whilst I have been away. The kitchen now looks amazingly clean, fresh and beautifully painted. I am incredibly pleased with the results and the experience.”
"Once again a superb piece of work"
Once again a superb piece of work by David and the team. I have used the services of the Painting Partnership over many years in several properties, and each time the quality of the work and service exceed my expectations!
From the initial quote, through to project managing the agreed scope of work and to the detail on the invoicing, the team manage to achieve that delicate balance between keeping me informed and involved, while at the same time relieving me of all hassle, worry and responsibility.
I do not hesitate to recommend them to others and am absolutely confident that I will rely on their services again in the future. Thank you, the Painting Partnership!!
Lovely to deal with, excellent finish, would happily recommend.
Would I use them again? In a heartbeat.
I used The Painting Partnership for the first time to decorate my living room and kitchen. I have nothing but praise for their standard of work, cleanliness, tidiness, punctuality and friendly professionalism. The job was completed in the time David stated. Would I use them again? In a heartbeat.
Always provide consistently good service
I’ve used The Painting Partnership for a number of years for small maintenance jobs through to major renovations. They always provide consistently good service, including arriving when they agree to, doing the work for the agreed price, tidying up after themselves as well as performing an excellent job on the work itself. Have no hesitation in recommending their work to others.
Happy to recommend
Removed wall in utility room, laid flooring and decoration work in bedrooms and hall, stairs and landing of new home. helpful, responsive, flexible.
Always been competent and professional
We have used David and his team for around 3 years now on a variety of jobs as we renovated and updated our 1920’s apartment, including general painting and decorating, kitchen updating and a bathroom refit. The team have always been competent and professional and any little issues we have had were quickly sorted. In the meantime they seem to have become the go to guys for the other flats in our property and a number of friends.
