We just wanted to say a big thank-you to Graham for the work that he completed on our hallway and landing while we were on holiday.
It was a delight to see when we arrived home from our travels at 01:30 yesterday morning. We are very pleased with the result and hope that Graham was as well. My requirements made it as tricky as I could manage for him, with the long drop in the stair well and the wall with the radiator as you enter the front door, but he rose to the challenge admirably
I can’t recommend Graham Collins highly enough. From the moment he entered our house to give us a quote, to the moment the works were complete he was a true professional. Very understanding, honest and kind. When he worked he worked with integrity and pride in his work. He spent time re painting one ceiling three times as he is a perfectionist. He returned to check on his work and touch up areas to ensure it was done to the highest spec. He also did extra work for me that revealed itself as he begun the original schedule of works. Nothing was too much trouble.
Whilst he worked for us he was sensitive to the mess and upset to our family life. He was very clean and didn’t leave the house in a mess. He was very kind and great company. I work from home and have small children and he was very understanding and did everything to make it all go smoothly. It was a big job with a lot of work and we were concerned about the costs involved as it was a result of damage following a huge flood which ruined the house from top to bottom. Our total amount upon completion of works was actually less than the quote. In this day and age this is very rare and shows honesty and integrity. We are delighted with the quality of work done by Graham and will use him again in a heartbeat. Thank you so much, our house has been in turmoil for months and feels lovely and like a home again."
I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Graham Collins Decorators Ltd.
We have used his services on a number of occasions over the last 10 years, for both internal and external work, and have always been very happy with both the cost and quality of his work.
He is polite, friendly and always happy to discuss any issues that arise. His estimates are clear and detailed. Once on site the work is completed in a timely manner with minimal delay, and the site is kept clean and tidy at all times. He pays particular attention to preparation, dealing comprehensively with any damage or decay before applying finishing coats.
Mr Collins painted the outside of our house 10years ago. Last year he did it again. We expect to be asking for another estimate for the same work in about 2025!"
We have always found that Graham conducts himself in a professional manner from the time he arrives to give a quote to the time the job finishes. He works with his clients and will talk to you if there is a problem rather than carry on. We have recommended Graham to several of our friends and all have been very happy with Graham and the quality of his workmanship."Mr & Mrs S, Frindsbury
We used Graham's services to completely redecorate our 5 bedroomed Vicarage, and were delighted with the high standard of workmanship and housekeeping whilst the work was in progress. We subsequently invited him to quote for redecoration of the Church South Transept. This required the use of specialist materials suiting the historic fabric of the building, and once again, his quotation was very competitive and the finished work has been completed to what we now know to be his usual high standard.
We are pleased to commend his services to anyone who is seeking a decorator who is capable, reliable and professional."
Both John and I found that Graham certainly knows his job in painting and decorating. Very friendly and approachable person. Graham was recommended to us by a friend of ours who had carried out painting and decorating for him. I also recommended him to carry out some work for a neighbour of ours in Cuxton, which Graham did even before our own work was carried out. She was extremely pleased with the work which was to decorate a downstairs shower room, etc, which had recently been installed.
We hope to seek his services again, if not at the end of the year but in 2018."
We were introduced to Graham and his work from a home improvement specialist and we have been truly delighted with his standard of work, his cleanliness and tidiness in the work place together with his professionalism and friendliness.
We can recommend Graham as a decorator, without any hesitation, and he brings good humour and he has a keen eye and able to make valid suggestions as a result of his vast experience."
We have used Graham for the past 10 years or so, having seen his work on another property in our village and been recommended to us by that owner. We have used him to decorate both the inside and outside of our house on many occasions since and as a result of our recommendation he has been used by several friends as well as family members.
The quality of his work is excellent and he is a neat and tidy worker with a very friendly and personable manner.
We would recommend him without reservation"

Graham has worked for us as a decorator over the past 18 years. We have always found him a hard and conscientious worker. His finished work is always of a high standard and nothing seems too much trouble. His prices are competitive too."Mr & Mrs G, Shorne
Graham was recommended to me by another tradesman that I used and he warned, ‘You will have to wait a while as he is always busy’. However, he is worth waiting for and the fact that he is in demand is testament to his excellent reputation. Over the last 18 months, Graham has decorated my town house from top to bottom - painting throughout and wallpapering in some areas. His standard of work is very good indeed and he is always open to suggestions and also very patient if ideas are changed. He works hard and takes pride in what he does, always leaving the house clean and tidy at the end of the day.
