Q E Decorating - Quality and Excellence in Decorating

  • Painting of window frames

    He did a very good job. The external face of the house looks good

  • paint fitted wardrobes

    Great job, professional finish and done in good time.

  • 3 rooms to be painted/decorated

    We found Ivan very accommodating regarding timing of the work (we had three rooms to decorate, which could not all be done at the same time). Very pleased with the quality of the painting (walls and woodwork) however the wallpapering was slightly of a lower standard.
    Overall, very happy to recommend Ivan and we would be very comfortable with hiring him again.

  • Painting the outside and back of a house

    Ivan and his workman did an excellent job on my property painting the whole outside of my property. We had a brown pebble dash at the back and the side. He put three coats of paints and also painted the bottom part of the house in black while making the masonry smooth. Very professional, punctual, polite and high quality work. Hard workers. Will definitely use again.

  • Bedroom- stripping paper and ceiling tiles and painting

    Excellent standard of work. Polite and efficient. highly recommended.

  • Painting stairs

    On time, clean and really good! I am now using him again the second because his good at what his doing.

  • Enfield Town Interior Decorating

    Ivan and the QED team decorated our flat before we moved in and did an excellent job. The job involved removing textured wallpaper and a dado rail, making walls good, painting and hanging wallpaper. All done to an extremely high standard and on time. I don't have a car and was worried about how I would get materials, Ivan was able to purchase these for us. At the end of the job, we realised that one blind had been put back up the wrong way round and when we raised this with Ivan, he came round the next day and put it right. Highly recommend Q E Decorating and would certainly use them again in the future.

  • Bedroom painting

    Extremely pleased with the work that Ivan did. He's very professional and ensures the job is finished to a high standard. Ivan gave me an update on progress at the end of each day. He even painted the edges of a black fireplace to disguise the messy painting done by a previous occupant - I hadn't asked him to do this, but he spotted it and fixed it himself. I've already asked him back to do some more work!

  • French Polisher required to stain Wood Doors & Frames

    Ivan was a pleasure to work with. Super helpful and willing to make changes as we went along, providing good advice at all times. I would certainly use QE Decorating again!

  • Gloss painting of woodwork in large bedroom

    Ivan has done an amazing job repainting all the wood work of a large bedroom including a built in wardrobe. We would love to have Ivan back asap to do more painting at our house.

  • Stairwell painting

    Ivan did an amazing job on our stairwell, where the walls were too high for us to reach with a normal ladder.

    Lovely guy. Will be using him again as soon as we have any further painting requirements.

  • Painting for two rooms

    Would call him back and recommend him with eyes closed. Very thorough, professional and polite!

  • Decorating hallway

    Ivan was very reliable and gave a very competitive quote for the work. We are really pleased with the finished result and would definitely use him again.

  • painting lounge/kitchen and hallway

    Ivan did a fantastic job, very professional, clean and on time.
    i would hestate on using him again.

  • Decorate bedroom

    Very polite and helpful.
    Cleaned up well after the job and did not disrupt the rest of the household.
    Work finished on time.
    Would hire again.

  • Ground floor bay window painting/ front door

    Ivan and his team were very professional and thorough. They worked quickly and were very tidy. I am very pleased with their work. As a result we ended up having some plastering work done as well.

  • Old Water Damage Re painting

    I didn't see this job completed but the tenants were happy with it and no problems to report

  • Paint internal hall in shared building

    Really easy to organise and they did a great job, would use them again.

  • Quote required for exterior painting of house

    Ready to start job straight away, polite, efficient and flexible to work round issues/addtional work required. Pleased with work carried out. Important to remember to discuss what finish you require on the the paintwork.

  • Repaint the exterior & windows on our building.

    I have had a fantastic experience working with QED.
    Ivalyo has taken on additional painting for us and everything the job was well done. His tradesmen were friendly and once we confirmed all the details the job was completed very quickly.

    Would definitely recommend,


  • external redecoration of detached house plus other work

    Good quality job done in an efficient timely manner for a very competitive price. We would certainly not hesitate in recommending them as a decorating contractor.

  • Hallway, Staircase, Stairs, Doors and Skirting board

    Once we started the job we decided to do both our bedrooms as well as the hall, doors and the front of the house so it turned into quite a large project. Ivaylo was very flexible and responsive throughout and was able to start at short notice when our timetable changed because of unforeseen circumstances. Ivaylo was polite and made helpful suggestions throughout and his team were hardworking. The work was done to a high standard and our house looked amazing when the work was finished, especially our stairs and bannisters which had looked old and worn before the work was done but we were asked by someone if they had been newly installed. We thought Ivaylo's rates were very reasonable and we would recommend him and his team to anyone.

  • Painting front of the house.

    Hard working, reliable, high quality and good price, finished on time no delays or inconvenience, very pleased. They since did other jobs for me and will defenately hire in the future.

  • External Paint Job - 9 Windows

    Ivan did a good job painting my windows and was v flexible working around the bad weather

  • Window decoration

    Very good work and completed in good time. A professional service.

  • Outside of house requires painting

    Ivan and his team were really good. They worked hard and were reliable and thorough. They turned up when they said they would and worked full days, not going off after half a day to another job (which quite a lot of tradespeople do, unfortunately).

    Ivan was very easy to deal with, friendly and professional, and did a great job painting the outside of our house for a good price. His team tidied up after themselves and didn't leave a mess. I would definitely use him again.

  • Painting, internal, four storey terrace

    Very pleased with Ivaylo and his colleague's work. Painting 4 rooms to a very good standard. No inconvenience and they were very good at cleaning up after themselves.

  • Decorate loft extension

    Ivan decorated our loft room. Ivan is a nice guy and he did a quality job for a very good price. However we felt he didn't spend enough time making good prior to painting and we had to get him to rectify a few obvious issues, which to be fair he did rectify without complaint.

    Anyway the loft now looks great - and Ivan supplied the paint at a great price - but we'd have appreciated a bit more attention to detail without us having to point out some obvious issues.

  • External painting of a double storey terrace house

    Ivan and team did a great job on the external walls of my house. They were always polite, accommodative and found a solution to painting the walls without very expensive scaffolding.

    They were also competitive in their fee quote. Am overall happy with their work and would use them again.


  • Painting bedroom with wooden ceiling

    Ivan has done an excellent job, the price was reasonable and he worked fast and tidily and I love the result. So much so that I have asked him to quote straight away for another job

  • Painting of boundary wall and outside of building

    Good work done. On time. Thanks

  • Sash windows - paint and repair

    Ivan was able to turn around this job to a short deadline, but did not compromise on quality of finish. The sash windows now look beautiful and I feel like I've found a painter and decorator who I can rely on; going forward I will be talking to Ivan on any prospective job.

  • Bedroom + Living Room Redecorate

    Ivan was professional, trustworthy and completed the job to a high standard.

    We wouldn't hesitate to hire him again. He finished it in good time and at a good price. We're really pleased with the finish of the bedroom - it looks fantastic!

  • Exterior painting of front of house

    We needed the front of our Edwardian house painted and Ivan came around and gave us a reasonable quote. We chose him because he went through everything that needed to be done so that we had a good understanding of exactly what he would do. He was on time each day and a perfectionist. He did a great job. Each day he cleaned up and was very tidy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ivan.

  • External/Internal Painter required for London Flat

  • Painting a room (rest of house to follow at later date)

    QE Decorating did a great job on our living room; the work was completed to a high standard and in good time. They are now doing other rooms in our house - I can't wait to see the results.

  • Painting two bedrooms and hallway/landing

    Diligent and friendly, already asked them to quote for some more work next year. Recommended.

  • Paint medium size room all white

    QE decorating completed the job quickly with a very good eye for detail (and I am a perfectionist) I was very happy with the work he did and will definitely be using him again in the future. I'm so happy I found a great workman off this site.

  • Church Hall External re-paint

    Excellent work - on time - on budget.

  • Painting & decorating the whole interior of the house

    They smoothed over many holes and cracks in the wall from a removal of dado rails and painted the entire house. They were the cheapest quote I found but still did a decent job.

  • External Painting Terraced House

    Ivan and his team did an excellent job on all external woodwork and cast iron work on my property. They were punctual, reliable and cleaned up well each day. Would not hesitate to recommend for any decorating work.

  • Painting the exterior of our edwardian house

    Ivan and the team were great in all aspects of carrying out the job. They arrived on time, they were neat and tidy and of course most importantly the standard of work they carried out was excellent. They decorated the front of our Edwardian house dealing with some sill damage and the work is excellent, we have had many comments on how lovely the work is. I would recommend Ivan without hesitation. Finally, the job was managed very well in all aspects, the budget quoted was what I was billed, Ivan kept checking I was happy with the work and the team were really helpful on a daily basis and totally respectful in and around our home. I am definitely planning on having QE back to do more work.

  • Decorate newly plastered lounge/diner

    Ivan is a really nice guy, easy to deal with and understood what we wanted, a reasonable job for a reasonable price and that is what he did. The brushwork was to a very high standard and we are very pleased with the result.
    Would we hire him again - yes, and we have!
    Highly recommend.

  • Paint 3 rooms, stair bannisters & wallpaper repair

    I was really happy with the quote, the speed in which the job was started and now that the job is complete, I am very impressed with the quality. An efficient and great job. Thank-you Ivan and your team.

  • Exterior house painting (pebbledash)

    We instantly liked Ivan when he came round to give us a quote. He seemed polite, friendly and knowledgeable but didn't put any pressure on us to use his services. We ended up choosing him to paint the exterior pebbledash on our house to turn it from a nasty brown colour to grey at the front and white at the back. Apparently Ivan's been getting calls from our neighbours that now want the same!

    Since then Ivan's also painted our new loft conversion room,hallway and bannister as well as varnishing the floor. He's been really helpful in terms of offering advice when we've asked for it and has always done his best to fit a job in whenever he can (although he deserves to give himself a bit more sleep I think!). I also completely trust Ivan in my house which is incredibly important as I can't just take time off work whilst jobs are being done. We'd definitely recommend him to others.


    Very pleased with the job and the attitude of the workers who did the work
    Very clean and tidy and committed to their work

  • Painting hallway and stairs

    I am very pleased with the quality of the work, the price and the way in which they were able to do both jobs very quickly. Ivaylo has been very obliging and agreed to repaint the kitchen when I was unsure about the colour I had chosen. He came round one evening with a tester pot for a new colour and that helped me decide to stick with the original, thereby saving me money.

  • Decorating following completion of loft extension

    Ivaylo and his friends were always on time and delivered the good finish I was looking for to make the new loft extension look bright and clean. I will contact Ivaylo again.

  • painter exterior

    Came to the site, looked at the job, gave his price, he just would not badge from there, started and finished,

  • Prepare, repair as required and repaint front of house

    Good job, arrived when he said he would, completed the works and left the site tidy. I have asked Ivan to quote on more works now.

  • Outside painting work for a semi-detached terrace house

    Good and committed to his job.

  • Stripping, plastering and painting

  • Painter

    A job well done. Started the job promptly and kept to the time plan agreed. There was no disturbance during the duration of the works. Was punctual and flexible when required. Would highly recommend.

  • Exterior wall and window surround

    Ivan and Rob did a great job, very professional and friendly. They completed our job on time and as agreed. We would definitely hire them again for other painting jobs....it is so hard to find a decent painter in London, and I think we have finally found them! Thank you

  • Paint exterior front of property

    Ivan responded to my job posting to paint the exterior of the property and he arrived the very next day to provide a quote. Ivan and his team turned up on the day that we agreed, they were polite and took care to leave the place tidy when they left. The work was completed in good time and the quality of the work was also good. The job needed scaffolding and Ivan arranged all of this for me. I would be happy to use Ivan and his team again in the future and if you're looking for someone reliable and affordable then Q E Decorating would be a good choice.

  • Strip and paint windows

    Ivan is a very nice, affable and reliable man.He and I agreed on the quality and finish of the work and agreed on the price, so we had a statement of work up front to avoid any misunderstandings later.
    Ivan has a team of decorators, Ivan's decorators' work was checked and if any issue arose, was dealt with promptly by Ivan himself.
    The quality of the painting is very good, and Ivan ensured that all was left clean at the end of the job. Any snagging, was promptly corrected. I am very happy with the work carried out and with Ivan's professional manner.
    I intend to invite QE DECORATING back to do our internal wood painting next year.
    I would recommend Ivan, as he has the same high standards in painting as I do.

  • Sanding doors and revarnishing

    Ivan was courteous and considerate of the job needs. A perfectionist and completed job with 100% satisfaction. Definitely will be seeking Ivans expertise again and would highly recommend to friends and acquaintances.

  • Painting 3 rooms

    Ivanylo and his team did an excellent job painting the inside of our new home, we were very happy with the result. They took care and pride in the project and it was completed to a very high standard. We would highly recommend and will re-hire for the outside painting.

  • External Decoration of front and rear of house

    They did a good job and I would use them again.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Ivaylo decorated the outside of my house, the stonework, window frames etc. I talked him through the job then he got on with it, he kept it clean and tidy and is a confident worker. I am planning some internal decorating and will call Ivaylo again to do it. I recommended him to my brother-in-law and would recommend him to anyone else too.

  • Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder

    Ivaylo has done work on two properties for me. Preparing the walls, putting up wallpaper, varnishing woodwork etc. It has all been done to a high standard, he's very conscientious and it's easy to discuss things with him. He takes his time to understand exactly what I want doing and never rushes the job. He is organised, always turns up on time with the right tools and equipment. I've never had a problem with him or his work, in fact I only have very positive things to say about him. I have done and will continue to recommend him.
