Charlie gave me a really keen price and delivered on time. The job was done so well, the project manager on the refurbishment bought the flat from me for his step-daughter. A great job well done!
I was very happy with a number of point in relation to the job done. Work was carried out to a high standard. Workers were polite and friendly to my staff. Clean, orderly and tidy. They had to move our furnishings prior to working and move it back before the next day started. This was a hard and difficult job, done to a professional standard.
Dear Charlie, Both Dawn and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your colleague Derek for the excellent quality of work carried out in our home. Your advice and patience was really appreciated when deciding upon colours and themes for the decoration of our spare room and bathroom.
The work was carried out with a minimum of fuss and I still cannot believe that Derek does not drink tea or coffee… a first for tradesman in my experience!
Everything was completed in a timely manner leaving Dawn and myself thrilled with the end result. (So much so that Dawn now wants to move into the spare room!) Consequently, Dawn has now earmarked other areas within our flat for a C & E facelift. (Thanks Charlie…)
I would absolutely have no hesitation in recommending C & E to all my colleagues, friends and family.
Thanks again Charlie!
First, thank you for completing my son’s bedroom in time for his birthday on Friday. He is thrilled with his new teenage bedroom and he has three friends sleeping over tonight who all think it’s pretty cool. Derek is a lovely chap who turned up on time, worked solidly all day and then actually asked for a hoover to tidy up before he left. I was very impressed – many thanks
Thanks again for the work to date.
I just wanted to thank you for the magnificent job you have done redecorating all the rooms in our house.
The workmanship is absolutely spot on and despite finding some dampness on one of the walls the course of action recommended by you to rectify the problem was honest, accurate, and has been put into action.
We have used your services before and are delighted to see your commitment and professional approach to each individual job has not varied over the years.
We have no hesitation in recommending you to friends, family and business associates with complete confidence.
Mum, Dad and I are delighted with the work Graham did inside and outside.
I'm really pleased with the job you’ve done. Thanks.
Can I pencil you in for end August/beginning September for the nursery?
Thank you Charlie for the beautiful job you did repairing our damaged ceiling last week.The original plan to replace the 1930s artex with a structured paper was scrapped when we saw the absolutely perfect finish of you plasterwork – and we settled on just having it painted white.
The walls were also repainted to the highest professional standard and you refreshed all the woodwork in no time at all.
All work was done on schedule, all appointments kept, with the least possible disturbance to ourselves. I am delighted with the end result and would gladly recommend you as a highly skilled and professional painter and plasterer!
Just a short letter of thanks for the continued flow of work you’ve completed on my client’s behalf.
There is an old Jesuit saying that roughly translates from the Latin as:
"Strive to do ordinary things in an extraordinary way and you will find the strength to make the extraordinary ordinary."
Thank you for the unceasing flow of quality work delivered on time and on budget with consummate ease. In the twenty months since I started to give work to you, I have not had one complaint.
For me, that says it all!
I refer to the work that you carried out at my house recently and would like to take the opportunity to express my gratitude with regard to the high standard of work and attitude of your staff.
It was not always easy to do the work as some of the painting involved external decorating and with the unpredictability of the weather I could have still been waiting for this to be completed. However, due to Derek’s commitment to the job and his willingness to work unsociable hours the job was finished within the agreed timescale thereby taking advantage of the limited dry weather that we had.
As you are aware, I am involved in the building trade and I know the importance of getting the basics right, ie; timekeeping; cleanliness; working within agreed timescales and attention to detail. These you coped with, with ease and therefore as a pleasant experience that we had in using your firm I will have no hesitation in using your services again or in recommending your company to friends, family and acquaintances.
Margaret and I would like to thank you for your kind attention. We are absolutely delighted with the decoration, and would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone we know looking for your skills. Hopefully, when another part of the house needs redecorating, we can call on your services.
I am writing to thank you for the great job you did on the kitchen and utility room. At short notice you came in on budget and finished the job within a very tight deadline. Despite the pressure to finished, there was no compromise in the quality of your work.
Having used several painting companies in the past, there was always been some aspect of the work or admin skills (or lack of them) which let them down.
Having used your firm now on seven different jobs, I am still looking for any weakness in your business practice.
Long may I search to no avail!
Just a quick note to thank you very much for doing such a good job when you painted the exterior of my shop along with the rest of the building shared with two others.
Knowing how difficult to please my neighbours can be I must have needed my head looked at, when I volunteered to organise someone to paint the building. However, I was confident, having heard numerous good reports, that you were the right person for the job, and I have not been disappointed. Both neighbours are happy!
I am very particular with carrying out preparatory as I believe that if you get that right, you get a far better job done at the end of the day. It was nice to see that you also believe in this ethos, as not only was I impressed with your preparation, but one if my neighbours two doors down who I understand has approaches you to carry out some work for them.The building is looking really smart and I’m confident this will last a lot longer than on previous occasions.
I will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone I know is requiring your services.
I can confirm that my father, James Campbell, used the services of Charles Hardie, painter & decorator to re-decorate his livingroom and kitchen, which was done to his full satisfaction within the time and price specified. He has no hesitation in recommending the services of C & E Hardie Painters and Decorators.
