“Paul has been our painter exclusively since 1978 at which time they stepped in when another company let us down. We were delighted with their work and have never been disappointed since. Paul has completed many projects for us over these years, on time and within the budget allowed. I have recommended Paul to other on a number of occasions, and will continue to do so without any hesitation.”
