Feedback for palmers decorating

I couldn't recommend Jesse and his team highly enough. They carried out an extensive replastering and redecorating job and the finish quality is excellent. As well as plastering and painting, the job included new doors, new laminate floors and replacement radiators and I liked the fact that he used specialist trades for all disciplines, which resulted in a top quality job all round. He offered great advice throughout, helping us save on materials and project managed the job brilliantly. He was easy to get on with, got on with the work calmly and efficiently and kept us informed at all times as to how it was going and to discuss any problems they encountered. We didn't help by changing our minds a lot, but he never complained and always made practical suggestions as to how best to do things. He was also really fair with pricing those changes - too often contractors overcharge for extras, and we didn't feel that was the case here.
The job was interrupted by the Covid lockdown, and the team worked really hard to get the house into a habitable state before they had to leave site. He was straight back as soon as Govt advice allowed it and quickly finished it all off. We were so pleased with it all that we immediately asked him to freshen up the outside of the house too, and he got straight on with it.
I wouldn't hesitate to have him back again, and would thoroughly recommend him to anyone thinking of having work done. Great work Jesse and the whole team, thank you!
