About Kevin Grimmond & Son Decorating

We have worked in many different environments from domestic & restoration through to commercial & industrial Painting & Decorating. We are finding that with the present market of property lettings being on the rise, we are being asked more and more to paint out houses in quick turn-around but with expectations of high standards still needing to be kept.

Some of the work force.
I (Kevin) did my training with Holiday of York Decorators (Jack Holiday, now retired) working at many different residential properties all over Yorkshire and on restoration projects at Grand Opera House, Scamston Hall, Middlethorpe Hall, Castle Howard, exterior of Redcar cinema and involved with the refurbishment at The Grand Hotel, Scarborough.

Mark is our York based estimator and has a wealth of knowledge of the painting trade.

Tom is our Middlesbrough based estimator with HNC qualifications in various areas of the building trades.

Martin, one of my Sons helped me on projects during school holidays, when Martin left school he worked for various people in different trades but found himself drawn back to painting & decorating. Martin did his training with me and worked with other employees within the company.

James (Martins younger brother) has now joined full time working alongside other employees to learn our trade.

With the expansion of our family run business and now having 2 business partners (Mark & Tom) both with a wealth of experience in the painting & decorating trade. Mark & Tom look after the admin side of the business from our York & Middlesbrough offices, we now have even more experienced hands to deal with and have the capacity of running larger projects, including being responsible for costings, getting the work completed safely, on time, on budget and to the clients expected standards.

Within the company we have various trade certificates from City & Guilds, First Aid Training to Safe Contractor & IPAF.


I (Kevin) have full City & Guilds 1987 including the Advanced Craft Certification 1988, CSCS 2008, IPAF 3A, 3B 2007, Site Management Safety Training Scheme 2006 & have also passed Carillion Security check 2008.
I (Martin) have also passed all my exams in painting & decorating, CSCS & Carrilion secutiry We offer a full range of decorating services, ranging from painting that small box room to full house redecoration including wallpaper hanging and everything in- between.

Here are just some of the services I provide:

Interior painting & Re-Decoration
Hanging of Wallpaper
Small D.I.Y. Jobs
Holiday Service
Speedy Full House Re-Decoration
All aspects of interior re-decoration, stripping wallpaper, lining, emulsion painting, woodwork (oil & acrylic) & wallpaper hanging, preparing with traditional techniques, applying the most suitable paints available.

If you want to paint your own room, we can just hang the wallpaper, we have hung thousands of wallpapers from Zoffany to Blown Vinyl, Hand Print & Silk, Muraspec to Laura Ashley. As experienced decorators we have hung papers in homes, offices, hotels and more specific places such as Rudding House Harrogate, Scamston Hall near Malton, Roche Bobis Liverpool, Virgin Offices London, Grand Opera House York, I (Kevin) have hung wallpapers for Plaskitt & Plaskitt and York House Interiors both Interior Designers from York.

Over the years we have found that we need to be fixing doors that don't shut, putting up curtain rails & shelves, mending broken wardrobes and even building flat-pack furniture. So if you have any small DIY jobs that need doing while your room is being decorated then just ask because if we can't do it we will know a man that can.

We also offer a Holiday Service (check out the testimonial page) this is where we work together with you on your exact requirements, including colour scheme and finishes for your home, so that we can make sure whilst you're on your holiday relaxing, we get your room/home finished by your return.

After years of working with other decorators and training many apprentices, we have the experience to organise larger jobs by utilising decorators that we know & trust to work with us, so a full house redecoration project can be carried out in a specific time frame.

Please get in touch with one of us for a free no obligation quote, or for more details on any work that you may require.
