Time served, hard working, job conscientious painter & decorator. Clean and tidy. My decorating skills are second to none. No job too small. I have to date 32 years experience. Through my decorating career I served with Appletons - part of the Top Hat Group of Elite Decorators. I take pride in my work.

About D.H.Decor

I served my apprenticeship of 4 years with W J Hughes and Son. After a further 2 years I moved to a larger firm, Appletons(Hat Group) and served another 17 years as a paperhanger. I worked on numerous contracts ie. hotels, municipal buildings and scores of private properties. When Appletons ceased trading I turned self employed working as a sole trader/paperhanger as well as sub contracting work with companies such as Total Fitness Ltd and Forrest Plc. I also worked along side local councils. I pride myself in my work I have to date 40 5star ratings through a company I am trading with. My work is of a high standard and over the years I have been commissioned by other decorating companies to do wallpapering.
