I was left in the lurch by an unprofessional, tardy, lazy, messy and incompetent painter, who left a third of the way into the job to go on holiday! This left me 3 weeks behind schedule, with carpet fitters waiting to lay carpet, upholsterers due to return my settees and furniture waiting to be delivered. I was at my wits end!
I posted my predicament on the MyBuilder website and was delighted to get 3 replies within a couple of hours. Janet was the first, so I rang her first!
Janet and her partner came to see the job that very afternoon - a Friday. They showed me their previous work, quoted me a price (less than previously quoted) and said they could start on Monday and be finished by the following Friday. I couldn't believe it!
True to her word, they arrived at 8.15am on the Monday and worked solidly through until gone 7pm for the following 4.5 days. They had finished by the Friday lunchtime! My project was back on track and I was delighted.
Janet was conscientious, clean, tidy, meticulous, polite and professional - and SO artistic! She even shabby chic'd my coffee table, which looks like a new piece of furniture, now. She helped advise on colour schemes and decor - all with the same consideration as though it was her own home.
I have had so many lovely comments on Janet's work - and recommended her to several of my friends. My home is transformed and I cannot thank her highly enough - in fact, she has since been back to do more work and will be coming again in February.
From "inventing" the table transformation, to advice on paint and colours, to fetching different brushes and textures to try, nothing was too much trouble.
Janet saved me from huge unnecessary cost and trouble with other tradespeople and from the mess I was in, my experience went from nightmare to delight.
