Painting , maybe lining Painting & Decorating
I got in touch with Gary as I needed my son's 2 bedrooms , bathroom , hall , stairs and living room done . He quoted me £650 so i agreed to work being started 16th July 2018 , as my son is 11 and has Autism so work had to be started and complete as quickly as possible to cause the least upset as possible to him . Gary rang and said he had a few days free , him and his son could come and get the two bedrooms finished . I agreed . I put £400 into his bank to cover 2 bedrooms , bathroom and £100 paint and that left 40 in the kitty . He came 1st day 9.30 left 12.15 his son had doctors appt to cut long story short few days few hours . Didn't finish any rooms went on holiday for week then another week no show . Has kept money and left my home in shambles and my son heartbroken . He was wanting to come back today but I have refused . He didn't keep his word coming early and said he would complete the 2 rooms !!!! No professional starts a job and leaves it incomplete for 2 weeks . I have asked for my money back and he is refusing . He saying he has done £300 worth off Labour???? Well hardly when he quoted £260 for 3 upstairs rooms to be done complete . My new doorframes were loose he said he would sort , well he hammered them on with masionary nails , didn't line them up and I had to get someone in to correct that . I would not recommend this man to anyone . Who takes a single mum's money and leaves her disabled son with no where to go when he needs his own space to unwind .

Charity bedroom makeover Painting & Decorating
Gary came to ur rescue when we were let down by another decorator. He managed to help us out at such short notice and did a wonderful job! I would highly recommend him and he will be the first person I call for any future work. Thank you Gary and team for the incredible high standard of work and for being so helpful right from the start. I look forward to working with you again in future.

Painting hallway/ staircase Painting & Decorating
Gary and his son just completed a full week of work at our place including painting the staircase walls, rail and post. We were very happy with the service from the first day we met to the end of the work. Gary and his son form a very good and reliable team, they always turned up on time, worked throughout the day and left the house clean before they left. As for the quality of the work, it exceeded our expectations, we wish we thought of taking pictures of before and after as the final results is truly amazing. We can all do a bit of painting but hiring professionals like Gary and his son was definitely money well spent. We would highly recommend their services, and for sure, next time we have a room to paint we will know who to call.

Fitting laminate floor in hallway Flooring
This job was left in very poor quality and finish. There were numerous large gaps and saw marks at the architraves, two of the doors didn't shut and the place was left in a total mess. The cupboard under the stairs was left with a massive chunk from a hand saw then replaced, wonky. The skirting was so badly fitted that there was a 15 - 20 mm gap, which was then filled with sealant. The boards didn't match. Damage was also caused to an antique table, which I presume was used as a cutting board. I had to lift the floor it was unacceptable.
I understand Gary is a painter and decorator. He definitely is not a floor fitter.

Painting and wallpapering Painting & Decorating
Gary done a brilliant job with the painting and wallpaper in throughout the house! Everything that we asked of him was done to a high standard and he cleaned up everything as he went along. I would definitely recommend him and use him again in the future.

Stripping and repapering Painting & Decorating
Very pleased with the work carried out and have already asked Gary to come back for another project in the near future. Charges reasonable rates, worked the whole time he was here and handy with a Hoover afterwards. What more could you ask for ?

Painting Living Room and Dining Room inc Ceilings Painting & Decorating
Thought long and hard over this review for a couple of days. Gary was a spot on fella, came when he said he would, charged a reasonable fee and most of the work is spot on. However, I have spent most of my day today trying to clean up, there is almost as much paint on the floors, window sills and even front door than there is on the walls and ceiling. The ceiling is also white in the middle where it is painted, but it is the colour of my walls where the roller has clearly done the top of the wall and pressed against the ceiling all the way around giving me a not so nice border all the way around the top. If I could post photos on this, I would.

Chestnutt Decorators's reply:
I was very upset with this feedback and thought it was very unfair.
I did offer to call out at the job and make right any problems at my own cost.
I did not receive a reply.
On my photos i have the message from Mr Gorman saying all my work was spot on, also I have the photos on this site painting the room were it is clear to see as with all of my work the floors were completely covered.
Sadly i can not have this feedback removed but i have great feedback on this site and now photo any existing paint spillage or as in this case striped paper and paint splatters previous to starting any work.
Over and over again my customers feedback state how clean and tidy my work is.
Saying the above I still am very sad that I was not given the opportunity to sort this problem no matter where the paint mess came from I would have rather tried to remove it than have damaging feed back.
Painting Hall, Living room, Stairs, Bedroom, 11 doors Painting & Decorating
8 day job completed and we're delighted with the end results. Gary and his son Ryan are both extremely lovely. They were on time or early every morning, came in and got stuck in. I was in and out of the house with the kids all day and they are totally trustworthy.
To put it mildly, I'm rather fussy and notice everything. When I went to them with a couple of bits, they fixed it and made nothing of it (which in past experience is when workmen can become quite narky and make things feel awkward).
We will definitely use them again and absolutely recommend them.
Great guys, Great Work! Thank you
