Read what our clients have to say about the work we have done for them. Our current and past customers can submit their testimonials here.

As an Estate Agent experienced in property development we were extremely selective when choosing a decorator for our new premises. With a wealth of choice available it was clear from the onset Grimmond & Son were a step above their competitors.

Mr Grimmond offered expert initial advice on finishes and colour schemes and provided precise details of proposed time-frames and working schedules, crucial for any busy business.

From day one the team were prompt, smart and courteous despite challenging working conditions in a busy location. The preparation work was outstanding ensuring the final finish was nothing short of superb. We have subsequently commissioned Grimmond & Son to undertake further development work and will heartily recommend them at any opportunity.

Refreshingly the after sales service has been equally impressive with Mr Grimmond returning after completion to ensure a perfect result. I cannot recommend this firm enough.

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.

Excellent decorators and very personable. Very flexible and adding to the original job didn't faze them. Thoroughly recommended.

What a pleasure to deal with - they did what they said, in the timescale & price agreed up front and delivered a superb result - you couldn't ask for more than that.

Suz, December 2011 - January 2012

Thank you for the excellent service and the really fantastic wallpapering job you did for us yesterday. We were a little anxious to just choose somebody on the internet but your website and visit gave us confidence that you would do a good job. I would not hesitate to recommend you both. We have already had lots of positive comments about the quality of workmanship, so much better than we could have done.

Best wishes.

Kevin and Martin came to decorate our hall, stairs and landing and upstairs bedrooms. We were given an estimate for the time to be 3 weeks and the work was finished to an exceptional standard within that time. We could not have been more pleased with the finished result.

They are both hardworking, conscientious and were pleasure to have in our home.

We have no hesitation in recommending Kevin and Martin as they are both first class decorators.
