They're simply the best craftspeople I've met. Kevin, Martin and their colleagues came to our rescue in a stressful time: we were pressed to renovate our home before putting it on the market, and our tenants had been more than a little creative with some atrocious paintwork. I almost daren't say this (Kevin is entitled to sleep sometimes), but the team generously agreed to work evenings—after a full day's labour—to complete the task promptly for us. We were able to trust them implicitly as they worked alone in the house, and they kept us up-to-date on their progress. No need for us to answer a question every hour—Kevin had listened once to exactly what we'd wanted and then delivered it impeccably. Ours is a challenging old house, yet the odd angles, tall stairwell, and existing lousy paint jobs were all handled with care and skill. The team's attention-to-detail went beyond anything we'd anticipated. Indeed, with all the time constraints they faced, the results might understandably have been rushed or slipshod. No. Everything was finished on time and was immaculate. Our home was left perfectly clean and gleaming. There were no hidden extra charges, and the reasonable fee was well-earned. Kevin even offered to complete touch-up jobs after other tradespeople had finished their jobs. Nothing was too much trouble. Kevin's unyielding cheerfulness, good humour and generosity were always in evidence (even when we asked for extra things to be painted so they'd match the crisp finishes he'd achieved). Ultimately, we are so grateful for Grimmond and Son's help in a whirlwind time. We are genuinely hoping that the team will come across the country to help us decorate our next home. (Please say yes !).
Warm regards and sincere thanks.
