I would recommend Chris as a decorator/ handyman to anyone who wants a job well done, in a timely fashion, by a true gent. He has just finished my stairs and landing plus two bedrooms, to an extremely high standard. I was worried about getting someone in to do this job for a lot of reasons but found him to be reliable, considerate, hard working, very tidy and methodical. Basically everything you would like to get from a professional but with a calm friendly manner.
Thank you Chris, so very much. Take care

It is obvious that Chris takes enormous pride in his work - and rightly so. We hired him to wallpaper and paint our hall, landing and stairs, and to install new lighting. He approached each stage of the tasks with great attention to detail, and was a pleasure to deal with. The price was excellent value too
