I have used James the painter on 3 occasions for decorating. As always, he is friendly and reliable. His finished work is of high quality and I can highly recommend his services.

Paul, Rusthall

A really quick and clean job. All carpets were well protected and the fire draws better than ever now.

Mr Peterson

We recently moved to Tunbridge Wells in a 2 bedroom terrace house. The whole house was in need of a good coat of paint. New to the area, we asked our neighbours if they could recommend a reliable decorating firm. James the Painter was highly recommended so we contacted him for a quote. 3 weeks later, the work was completed, every inch of the house was prepped and painted to a high standard. Our house looks spectacular and we are thrilled with our newly decorated house.

The Johnsons, Tunbridge Wells

James the painter is very reliable, meticulous and professional. His advice and concern show a great deal of experience. His decorating skills are second to none, I will definitely have him back and recommend him to friends/family.
