Brian and Maliki have done a brilliant job transforming the front of our small Victorian terrace this autumn. They are friendly, knowledgeable, responsive and committed to doing a great job. Brian's enthusiasm for detailed, high quality finishes is irresistible and Maliki's focused and skilful hand mean that they have succeeded in surpassing our expectations for this work. We are extremely satisfied and look forward to getting them involved in more projects.

I can also highly recommend Brian from Advanced Painters of Dulwich. His quote was very reasonable and the decorating was of a very high quality.

He was polite, did the work in a very timely manner and left our house tidy and clean. We are very happy with the end finish. Looks great!
We will be happy to use him and APD again in future.

Many thanks
Ben

They came, they saw, they painted; and what a difference they made. Brian and Malachi did a lot more more than it said on the tin. At this high-pressure time of year Brian responded to my enquiry within hours, came over to see what was needed and Ė though I thought he was being pretty optimistic with his proposed schedules and what could be achieved in aesthetic terms Ė†the work exceeded our expectations on all fronts. Thoroughly professional, courteous, hard-working, minimising disruption ... we have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Advanced Painters in the highest possible terms.
Many thanks
Diane

What a difference Brian and Malachi made to our facade. It wasnít just the painting but the remoulding of our bay window sills and our front wall. I would definitely recommend them, they were competitively priced, efficient and dealt with all the problems we threw at them. A great piece of work, thank you

Advanced Painters come highly recommended by me!

The hallway and stairs (a 3 story victorian house in Herne Hill) have been transformed in under a week and look fantastic.

Brian and the whole team were friendly and professional from start to finish, from responding to intial request for a quote and agreeing a price, arriving on time every day, keeping things as clean as possible throughout, and working diligently to finish a very high quality job with minimal fuss.

Wouldn't hesitate to use the guys again. Big thanks!

Really impressed by Brianís professionalism, expertise, enthusiasm and exacting high standards. He was very communicative, and managed the works at every step. His quotes were fair and competitive.

Advanced Painters of Dulwich painted my bedroom, and re-purposed the decking and re-painted the outside walls of my terrace to an excellent standard. I also had some electrical works that needed doing; Brian leveraged his extensive network of quality, trusted tradesmen to source an electrician at a favourable rate.

They team were very thorough with their prep and focussed on quality of execution for that high-end finish. Malachi, Neil and James were conscientious, respectful, good-humoured and well mannered. I especially appreciated that they left the place in a clean and tidy state. I would happily use Advanced Painters of Dulwich for all future works, and highly recommend them to friends, family and co-workers alike.

Keep up the good work guys! :-)

I had a problem with water coming into our loft and asked Brian if he would look into the matter. He came around and quickly discovered the source of the problem which was a cracked tile. He undertook to repair it and the result was an extremely professional job which both repaired the cracked tile and the roofing felt which had become worn. Brian has carried out jobs for me before and I will definitely use him again.

Just wanted to add my voice to the many praising Brian and his teamís work. I was let down by another decorator and Brian stepped in at the last minute and I was immediately reassured by his calm, professional manner. His team redecorated my whole flat and did a few other jobs too. He might not be the cheapest out there but the standard of work was excellent, my flat is transformed. Brian was a pleasure to deal with throughout, he Was always contactable, very reliable and patient with my changing requests. You can tell he takes great pride in doing a good job. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend Brian. He provided excellent guidance, advice and completed the job, along with Malachy, to an exceptionally high standard. We are incredibly pleased with the work Brian did. Not only was the paint job excellent, he helped fix a few bits and bobs with the room and I have asked him to come back to help me with other rooms in the house.

Hi,

Brian and team recently completed work on our house, which included both interior (living room, hallways) and external (anything wooden on the front and back of the house, including front door, window frames, etc, garden walls, metal railings etc.) a reasonably big job (taking just around 1.5 weeks in total).

Overall, we're very happy with the experience and I would recommend Advanced Painters - possibly not for people looking for the cheapest option, but for someone looking for: convenience, professionalism, piece of mind, an all in one service, and a very high quality finish.

My chief comments are:

1. Ease and convenience.

Brian came for a quote and sized up the list of requirements, giving me a fixed price upfront quote there and then. No messing around and the final price was what he said at the start. Maybe I could have shopped around and found a cheaper quote (I certainly had the option if I wanted it), but for me the convenience was worth it.

They set up a very neat camp in the back garden and at the end of each day everything was tidied and returned to their proper places, minimizing the impact on us. Each day they timed their arrivals to be just as we left for the day, and they wrapped up just as we got home, therefore there was enough overlap to pass messages back and forth, but no one was tripping over each other. Whilst Brian didnít do the majority of the work himself, he was around a lot, giving instructions, checking on things and generally making sure everything went smoothly.

2. Timeliness and the ability to work around us.

We have two small children, so it can be a bit difficult to lose rooms and get things organised in advance. The team absolutely worked around us, starting in areas that we didn't need, and when rain unexpectedly set in and we had to turn to the indoors painting they took care of moving all of "the stuff" for us. Speaking of which, they were generally very happy to unburden us of as much of the work as possible. Brian even took care to remember the exact ordering of coats when replacing them back into our hallway storage - I don't think many decorators would go to that level.

3. Prep and finish. I was very impressed with how much care was taken protecting the carpets and fittings before painting started. They made sure to put down protective covering on the floor, furniture etc. There isn't a drop of paint anywhere it shouldn't be. Also, without being asked they repaired parts of the plaster work that had been damaged over time. They also noticed some water ingress near the front door and repaired the outside wall (the recent heavy rain showed that they successfully fixed the problem). The outside walls that were heavily weathered were all stripped down and made good before being repatined.

I would describe the results as near flawless. I got exactly what I asked for, plus a bit more.

4. Other things

About halfway through the work we had a (unrelated) boiler issue and lost hot water. I mentioned this to Brian and he was able to find a plumber for us who came to fix the issue on the same day and charged us a minimal amount.

In summary, friendly, professional, hassle free service. I fully intend to use Brian / Advanced Painters in the future.

Brian and Barry did an excellent job painting my flat. They were professional, friendly, helpful and respectful through out. I was very impressed with the high quality of the work, which was started promptly after the first consultation and was finished to high standard. Brian also kindly included a few extras such as grouting and painting part of the hallway. He was always available to answer any questions and give advice. I highly recommend them and look forward to using the team again in the future.

As a repeat customer I am very pleased to say Brian did another excellent job on my flat. Not only did he fix my skirting in the kitchen to an excellent standard, but he also helped fix an adjoining problem in the bathroom within the original quoted price. A superb quality of work, from a diligent and conscientious provider. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a diligent, communicative and honest painter/decorator. I will definitely be using Advanced Painters of Dulwich services for my next piece of home improvement/project.

Brian was efficient and courteous throughout, Barry, who did the majority of the work was punctual and worked quickly and efficiently with a great eye for detail. Brian kept checking in on the works, guiding towards a high quality finish. There were a couple of extra bits that needed doing and Brian was able to quickly arrange additional resource to get the job done. Highly recommend.

Where else did you get quotes?

Thanks

We asked Brian and team to paint the whole exterior of our sizeable house and repair a considerable amount of woodwork in the process.

We found them thorough, meticulous and extremely careful in everything they did. They completed the work to a very high quality, and have left the house in much better shape than at any time we have lived here. They took considerable care in covering and protecting things, inside and outside the house.

Brian himself constantly checked on the delivery of the work, and project managed it all very effectively. He also communicated very well to us.

We would recommend the team to anyone wanting a really diligent, professional and thorough job, and we will assuredly ask them to do subsequent jobs here.
