Below are some testimonials from my customers following my Decorating and Tiling work:
I've never used a real decorator before but my sitting room was such a daunting task for my amateurish DIY skills that I decided to use a professional. I never regretted the decision to consult Fine Finishes.
On my first meeting with Stuart, I was impressed to death with his professionalism and work ethic. His knowledge of materials and methods was evident very early on, which gave me confidence in his advice.
He very tactfully steered me away from the colour scheme I had chosen (which I now admit was not a sound choice!) and he came equipped with a range of colour cards from paint suppliers that he recommended.
The job hit an early snag that neither of us could possibly have foreseen, but he suggested that it could be remedied by using good quality lining paper for the walls before applying the emulsion. This would obviously cost more in time and materials but I was content to follow his advice.
The results were immaculate.
At the end of each day's work, he tidied everything away so I wasn't tripping over dust sheets, paint pots and equipment. He even vacuumed the work area - a phenomenon I never encountered before - which was deeply appreciated.
He was always on time, always properly equipped and completely focused on the work. Nothing was too much trouble - he wasn't happy until I was happy. Part of the service was a seven-day follow-up call, to check that I was satisfied. Most impressive.
I would not hesitate to use him again - in fact I have a list of smaller jobs I'd like him to do when he can fit me in.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Stuart very highly to anyone that needs an excellent painter/decorator. He has recently finished painting the exterior of our house, a job that took nearly 3 weeks. He was a real pleasure to have around (as was his gorgeous Labrador Kiki!). He kept everything very clean and tidy, cleared away every day and was very helpful when we needed to research the many types of exterior paints on the market. He works very diligently and is focussed on the task. He also kept us informed very regularly as to progress and anticipated completion timings. We will be welcoming him back!
This is the first time I have used Stuart from Fine Finishes as I heard about him from a friend. I have to say that I am extremely happy with the decorating he produced for me. He was punctual and very friendly and helpful. From the very first contact he was willing to provide product knowledge and design ideas. He is a very clean and tidy worker and produces work to an exceptional standard. I will definitely be using him again and recommending him.
'I am the owner of a property near Godalming, Surrey, and I shall be pleased to supplement this Testimonial over the telephone if an interested home-owner or business-owner is considering using Stuart from Fine Finishes and is seeking verbal confirmation of this Testimonial.
Stuart very satisfactorily completed outside decoration at my home over a 2 week period. This work included re-painting a number of garage doors and external house windows (all of which were finished in white and black gloss after careful preparation) and the treatment of a number of hardwood windows, using Sikkens, at first floor and ground floor levels.
Stuart is knowledgeable about decoration and I found him to be trustworthy, efficient and a diligent worker. I am looking forward to using him on future occasions'.

Stuart worked 4 days Decorating my little girls room with one of the walls in wallpaper. I'm very pleased with the work. The walls and woodwork were in a really bad state and now the room looks brand new.
Stuart is trustworthy, reliable, friendly and a very clean worker.
We will definitely have him back in the future.
Thank you Stuart my daughter loves her new room.
Stuart was recommended to us by a friend. He completed two rooms on schedule and the work was finished to a very high standard. There was very little disruption to the rest of the house and the mess was minimal throughout. We were delighted with the result and have already booked him in to come back.
