“ We have used Lewis Ashley decorators twice this year. They did an excellent job in preparing and painting our old, grade 2 listed, wooden sash windows and all the exterior woodwork of the house and later in the year redecorated the hall ceiling following a water leak. On both occasions the quality of their work was excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any one who wants a job doing really well. ”

“ I am a retired chartered building surveyor having spent 40 years in the building industry. I appointed Lewis Ashley Ltd. to carry out the complete internal redecoration of my Victorian four bedroomed house as part of the complete refurbishment and extension of the property.

Paul and Vic (and occasionally others) spent several months intermittently working alongside other contractors, and my wife and I are delighted with the work they have done. They sometimes took it upon themselves to work beyond the requirements of the specification if they were unhappy with the result. This is something extremely rare to see in the building industry! They were extremely patient with interruptions to the progress of the works and are very friendly, helpful and a joy to work with.

I have no hesitation in recommending Lewis Ashley Ltd. ”

“ I would happily recommend Lewis Ashley Decorators to anyone. The decoration of the exterior of our large listed Victorian building was carried out to the highest standard. Richard and Vick were competent and efficient, and happy to carry out all the inevitable 'extras' which arise on a job. Terry was a great communicator and it was a pleasure to work with them all. ”

“ My wife & I have been absolutely delighted with the quality of the workmanship undertaken in our home by Terry of Lewis Ashley.

We were nearing completion of quite a significant renovation & refurbishment of a childhood family home, and were in need of a decorating specialist who could help us complete our project when we were first recommended Lewis Ashley.

Faced with the surprise of eighty years old plaster that, having been repeatedly covered with wallpaper, had managed to never be painted, Terry was undaunted, drawing in expertise as needed from paint manufacturers, and guiding us as to where remedial works were necessary, conscious of our much depleted home improvement budget!

The quality of the work undertaken by Lewis Ashley is truly outstanding and has helped give us a home which we can both now enjoy and relax in as we pack away our DIY tools after 12 months of slog!

We would not hesitate to recommend Lewis Ashley to friends and family when needing a high quality, reliable and friendly decorating service. Our only concern in recommending them more widely is that they will become even more popular than already!  ”

“ I cannot rate highly enough the workmanship, professionalism and friendliness of Terry of Lewis Ashley Decorators.

My husband and I initially had 2 rooms and the hallway of our bungalow decorated by Terry in 2016 and we were exceptionally pleased with the results. In mid 2017 I contacted Terry again to ask if he would decorate the remainder of my bungalow (a further 6 rooms). Having just lost my husband, the thought of this massive undertaking was quite daunting for me. However I need not have worried as Terry, once again, provided invaluable, friendly, professional advice and guidance throughout the whole process, often going the extra mile to ensure that every aspect of the work was completed to my entire satisfaction and beyond.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lewis Ashley Decorators to anyone and I would like to thank Terry for doing such a fabulous job. ”

“  I cannot praise highly enough the service offered by Terry and all the crew from Lewis Ashley.

We started using the company some 5 years ago when we required a professional and reliable firm of decorators. We had a time critical project that could not afford delay.

Our trust in their team has reaped dividends with an impeccably high standard of work all done in a timely manner and with a level of courtesy that has enabled us to remain open while some of the projects have continued. Our's is a customer service focused business and therefore the manner and behaviour of the contractors we use is paramount. For the cost conscious, all the jobs have been done to budget and without annoying additional costs other than those that we have chosen to increase the specification on the recommendation of Terry to provide a more permanent solution. The team of decorators are all without exception extremely polite and if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity you will also find they all sing in harmony, to such a degree that they have since performed at the hotel, without their paint brushes!  ”
