They have a very strong reputation and are extremely thorough when vetting tradesmen before they join the site. Each reference or feedback is verified by them before being posted on the site.

They interview, check accreditations / qualifications, check insurance, check references and also verify our ID. We also have to adhere to an ongoing code of conduct in all our dealings from initial phone call to completed work and beyond.

No other directory of tradespeople uses this model. The background checks and public feedback ensure that only reliable and trusted tradespeople get work through Checkatrade. They make sure that you can find someone outstanding to get the job done

Checkatrade members agree to:

  • Be honest in all dealings with you
  • Tell you about any call-out fees before coming to you
  • Let you know straight away if they can’t do the work
  • Keep appointments and arrive on time (calling in advance if they need to reschedule)
  • Be realistic about when they can start work and how long it will take
  • Be courteous. Treat you, your property and belongings with respect
  • Keep you in the picture about all aspects of the work
  • Return phone messages promptly
  • Create an additional contract for variations from the original agreement
  • Deal with complaints promptly and professionally
  • Never demand cash payment
  • Never be verbally or physically abusive or threatening to a customer in any way
  • Not obtain work through cold calling

You can see our latest feedback on the homepage of this site which shows the data straight from their site. You can visit our Checkatrade page and see feedback for all our recent decorating and kitchen cabinet painting in the Exeter area and beyond. We do have feedback on other sites like Dulux Select Decorators, Rated People & MyBuilder but all our recent feedback is being added to Checkatrade.

His meticulous preparation and attention to detail is second to none and he always tidied everything up at the end of each day. James carried out the work to a very high standard and we are extremely pleased with the result. We have no hesitation in recommending him.

Home and Gardens Magazine Feature http://freshpainting.co.uk/blog/home-gardens-magazine-feature/ http://freshpainting.co.uk/blog/home-gardens-magazine-feature/#respond Mon, 20 Jan 2014 19:04:23 +0000 http://freshpainting.co.uk/?p=511 A property we decorated was featured in November’s Home and Gardens magazine. I would like to dedicate this to my right-hand man on this job and my first decorating boss, Terry Lofts who sadly lost his battle with cancer this year. It was an epic job on a tight deadline and could not have done it without him. Relentlessly cheerful and a grafter Terry was always great company. We miss you big man and you amazing scalding hot tea drinking abilities! Salut!

Kitchen Painting – Refurbishing by painting units and doors http://freshpainting.co.uk/blog/kitchenpainting/ http://freshpainting.co.uk/blog/kitchenpainting/#respond Sat, 16 Mar 2013 15:30:38 +0000 http://freshpainting.co.uk/?p=306 Kitchens are, of course, the heart of every home and therefore an important room to get right due to the amount of time spent in it. Over time or perhaps when you have moved into a new place the kitchen might feel out-dated due to style and finish. Kitchen painting can help.

There are several different options of replacing elements of the kitchen to suit the style you desire. These could be changing doors and panels or replacing worktops. Another, and by far the most economical option, is kitchen painting, to paint the doors, trim and panels a different colour and finish. This could be combined with changing the handles to create a brand new kitchen environment.

Where kitchens have been ripped out and replaced this option might well have been overlooked. In most cases the wall and base units will be in sound condition, as will the doors. In some cases the kitchen may be a bespoke design for the space and will be well made but just needs freshening up that kitchen painting can bring.

Here are a few examples of painted kitchens we have completed recently in the Exeter area. If your kitchen needs freshening up or you would like a complete colour change we can help. You can save substantially by painting an existing kitchen over replacing it.

The kitchen above was a simple bespoke kitchen that required painting from the bare wood stage.It has been finished using Farrow and Ball London Stone Eggshell with Jacobean Oak stained knobs.

This kitchen to the left was a new kitchen installed by Sapphire Living, Topsham. The units arrived primed and the kitchen was then hand painted on site using Farrow and Ball Vert de Terre and Matchstick Eggshell
