We would not recommend Good English Painters for several reasons. They were disorganised – start date was changed a number of times due to other jobs they had on the go. But when we mentioned our builders scaffolding was staying up for a while, all of a sudden the team were available. They also didn’t make arrangements to take this cost out of our quote! There were different painters on site almost every 2 – 3 days so the continuity of work was poor and the next painter didn’t know whether 2 coats or 3 coats had been done. We had to tell one painter to leave as he kept smoking on site. A huge no-no when you are getting re-painting done, not to mention around children! We also requested a certain paint type to be used which the company agreed to, but they turned up with very old paint buckets, so there was no way we could tell they were using what we requested. The business owner seemed to say in our initial conversations, what we wanted to hear, that they would be able to start and finish on the agreed date. Neither of these two things happened and the job dragged out for weeks, preventing us from moving in. After about 2 years of the job being done, we are now finding paint peeling off, and it’s clear they didn’t do the number of coats they said they would as the undercoat is showing through. It cost us a small fortune and it looks like we’ll have to get the job re-done a lot earlier than expected.
