Our Clients

We value our client’s opinions and always like to hear feedback – especially when it’s nice! Here are just a few of the lovely testimonials that we’ve recently received.

Hello Jeanette

Can I just say how delighted I am with the job that you did. The windows from outside look brand new and have vastly improved the look of the whole building.My lounge and fireplace look superb.

You conducted yourselves in a professional and courteous manner at all times and it was a pleasure to have them working here. If only all tradesmen were as reliable and did as good a job.

J McEwan, Helensburgh

Very satisfied customer – the work was undertaken with careful attention to detail and in a neat and tidy manner. I would be happy to recommend Hamill Decorating – a helpful and flexible company – very refreshing.

C. Duffy, August 2009

Dear Charlie and Jeanette,

Thank you for all your hard work and efforts, what a team!

Not only did you have a task on your hands, for me, to run around and choose the correct product for my needs; your one to one service and attention to detail was second to none.

You worked with me and gave expert advice, which was a very pleasant experience, and a rare talent these days.

Even though we thought we had nailed the colour match; at the last minute, Charlie agreed that it was just a little shade out. He has the patience of a saint as we then had to mix 3 colours on site, which takes time and precision, but we eventually got there. After mixing 3 colours Charlie knocked it off, a true expert in his field.

Once again I would like to thank you both.

I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is looking for a first class friendly service.

If your house is in a state...let the Hamills decorate. Well – that's what I did, and this is what happened.

The quote was discussed and altered as required.
The painters turned up on time, were polite – and didn't drink all my coffee!
They were efficient and thorough.
They tidied up after themselves.
They finished the job on time.

And for added value – one eagle-eyed painter spotted that the paint that had been bought for the kitchen was in fact 'puce' instead of 'peach' - and rectified that error very quickly.

It was over and done in no time, with the minimum of fuss.

So...my house was in a state
And I let the Hamills decorate.
You should too, don't hesitate
Cos now I think my house is great...!

Sally Masterson, Masterson Media

We recently purchased two flats in Edinburgh, both of which required extensive renovation to freshen and modernize the interiors. As we are based in the States, we had to deal with contractors that we could trust to do the job correctly without our immediate supervision. Hamill Decorating exceeded our expectations. They met with us promptly at our initial request, answered all of our questions and explained what could be done. They worked with us and other bathroom, kitchen and carpet installers to meet a tight schedule and, when problems were encountered, not only notified us immediately, but also provided solutions by bringing in other skilled craftsmen as needed and coordinating their work and payment. The end result is a completely fresh look to the interior of both flats, with newly repaired, plastered as needed, and painted walls, trim and doors. Additionally, Hamill Decorating coordinated the lighting installation, radiator removal and reinstallation and post-job cleaning and sent us periodic pictures of the progress. Hamill Decorating is to be commended for their comprehensive, prompt, courteous and thoughtful service. We would not hesitate to engage them again for future projects.

Mr. and Mrs. Stonecipher, Edinburgh

Excellent work, very professional personnel. Despite trying weather conditions, they extended themselves to move the work forward. We were kept informed at every stage, much appreciated.

Mr J Fraser, Edinburgh

We have been delighted with the service we have received from your company. From start to finish your service has been exemplary. The quotation and early information was clear and helpful. The two men who worked at our home were excellent and the finished result has given our tired conservatory and timber porch a new lease of life. The care paid to the refurbished sah and case windows was 1st class. We would definitely recommend you to others(and already have). Thank you.

Mr and Mrs Allen, Gifford

I very much appreciate you addressing my “bumpy bits”-looks great. Thank you.

Miss C Phillips, Edinburgh
