Testimonials


“Roy is a true professional: highly skilled, knowledgeable and produces work of the highest quality. This was the second time he has done decorating work for us, and we can't recommend him enough. He has provided invaluable advice on how to deal with the quirks of our Victorian home when decorating, and knows exactly how to achieve the best result. He provided an accurate breakdown of costs from the beginning and kept us fully informed of his progress every day. His work is flawless, and we are absolutely thrilled with the results.”

Extensive repairs and renovation and painting to woodwork of external windows, doors and porch.
“The work was fully discussed in advance and as it progressed. The woodwork was in a very poor rotten state and several window sills and door frames needed replacement as well as painting. When finished one would not know how much had been done - it looked as new. The house is a detached house so there were a lot of windows, however everything was completed in the agreed time. Mr Basten and his workers were incredibly kind, friendly and understanding with my elderly mother who clearly enjoyed their company. Mr Basten very helpfully identified a locksmith to replace broken locks and lost keys.”

Hall, landing, staircase, front door and garage door painted.
“Roy and his colleague arrived on the agreed day to commence the work. The schedule and chosen paints were confirmed. Each morning floor coverings were put down and we were told what was to be done that day. Both were extremely polite and friendly and very professional. Before they left they cleaned up and removed the covers. The original wall colours were red and blue which was to be replaced with a neutral colour. The transformation was huge, it opened the area up and enhanced the oak doors. If anyone is considering having decorating and painting done we would highly recommend Roy.”

External decorations to all windows and doors
“I cannot fault anything about Roy and the quality of the work he has done for us. He was prompt and helpful at all times and gave us lots of feedback about what he was planning to do and how. His attention to detail was fantastic and gives me a lot of confidence in the work he has done. I could not be more pleased with the finish he achieved on all our external woodwork - it has transformed the house. I would recommend Roy without reservation.”

Exterior painting to the front / back of house and garage.
“If I could give 11 out of 10 I would and more. Workmanship is excellent, was always on site at the given time. I was very pleased with end result, he brought a tired house back to life which now looks perfect. I would highly recommend Mr Basten.”

“Great hard working guy. Job was done on time and on cost. We needed this doing rather quickly and Roy started the job within a week of seeing us, including providing us with a full quote which we felt was more than reasonable, was a fair bit of paint work to be done which was done to a high standard. We will definitely be having Roy back to do some other rooms and would highly recommend.”

Mrs Oswald, Bracknell.

“Repair (Fibre Line) and decorate a large lounge ceiling (post water leak) and fill in and paint the bathroom ceiling after a new tiling installation. He is first class and very professional – I whole heartedly recommend Roy. He explained what he was doing in terms even I could understand. He was very punctual and cleaned up well after each visit. I have no doubt I will try to use him again when next needed.”

Mr Rumsley, Wokingham.

“Roy was great, everything was done to the highest standard and I found him to be completely trustworthy and professional. I had no problem leaving him the key and letting him get on with it. He was also very helpful in giving this DIY-ignorant girl some useful advice!”

Miss Coleman, Jennets Park Bracknell.
