My Customers Say

Karin Petersen

"David Farnfield recently repainted all of the external woodwork of my house. This consists of several doors, two pairs of French Windows, many sash windows and the eaves. The thoroughness of his work included sanding all wood bare before painting
it; replacing rather than filling any damaged wood; removing all guttering before painting the eaves, then repairing or renewing the gutters before replacing them; and repairing or replacing any damaged or rotted glazing bars, bad putty and cracked
window panes. All his work was executed to the highest standard and I have no hesitation at all in recommending Mr Farnfield for any work of this nature. In addition to his complete reliability and conscientiousness, I would like to mention what a pleasure it was to have Mr Farnfield (and at times his equally conscientious son) around for good company and intelligent conversation!" 


David has just completed the stripping, filling, repairing and painting of our exterior windows and doors. The quality of his work is outstanding. His charges are reasonable. Work of this kind requires skill and patience- David has both qualities. I recommend him very highly. Anthony Hooper


David's attention to detail is incredible, very knowledgeable and a true skilled professional. Highly recommended!


I would highly recommend David, a very nice chap and he did a great job of painting a rather challenging room with very high ceilings and awkward beams. Thank you David!


Great service from David replies promptly to correspondence. Painting work was top quality and very good. He left the house clean and tidy. Would highly recommend.

Polly Mellor

"Thanks to his care and expertise the house has been completely transformed, both inside and out and I am absolutely delighted with the result. The 100 year-old property was in a poor state when I bought it last year and I knew that I needed to find an experienced decorator with very high standards for the task of redecoration to be achieved successfully. The excellence of Mr Farnfield’s work far exceeded my hopes and amply justifies the trust I put in him." 

Polly Mellor

"He was sympathetic towards the period and atmosphere of the house and the natural light within it. He carefully considered and discussed with me what colours and finishes would best suit it. Because of David Farnfield’s skill and conscientiousness, the house not only looks beautiful now but should retain its good looks for years to come."
