Painting, Decorating and Carpentry.


Ricardo Amado completed an excellent job in decorating our home inside and out,
even going beyond what was expected. He sourced a supplier of Italian vinyl wallpaper for the hall stairs and landing, after I expressed a preference for a really hard wearing wallpaper which I had failed to find in our local DIY stores. The result is truly gorgeous. He also painted and decorated our dining room, lounge and bedroom to an equally high standard. Throughout my home he was exceptionally diligent, tidy and dealt with a lot of unexpected problems associated with an old house. Outside he filled in under the fascias, with no charge, which the recent builders had not done, painted the gutters black to better blend in with the new grey walls and did extra unpaid diy jobs to complete the work to a very high standard. Ricardo was always on time, polite, worked unobtrusively, cleaned up at the end of each day and was always willing to help me with a chore due to my disability. The work was completed on time and the cost was reasonable. Ricardo proved to be completely trustworthy and explained in detail what work would be carried out the night before each day in order for me to be completely aware of the progress.
I would not hesitate in employing him again or recommending him to anyone. I have waited 15 years to have my home decorated and it was definately worth the wait!
