Testimonials - Painted Surfaces - Painters Decorators Bournemouth


A selection of testimonials for work carried out by Painted Surfaces.

Having just moved to our new house we wanted a colour change. Alex painted our previous home and we were very pleased with the completed job. Our new home now looks better than we expected and the new colour and professional finish has done wonders.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Alex for any decoration work, really pleasant person who respects you and your property.

Ashley Heath, Ringwood

Alex decorated several rooms and the exterior of my house in June of this year. Their work was very neat and tidy, executed expeditiously and at a fair price. Alex was helpful and accomodating throughout and, as the initial planned work was finished ahead of schedule I was pleased that Alex was able to decorate a couple of additional rooms for me.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex.


Alex and his team from Painted Surfaces have recently completed the redecoration of our hall, stairs and landing. They work to a high phenomenal standard and are always punctual. We're delighted with the finished job and can highly recommend.

Alex and his team have just finished the outside of our house - wooden windows, doors, fascias, soffits and rendered walls. The result is excellent. They worked hard and were genuinely pleasant folk to have around. Alex is highly professional, reasonable and sensible. What's not to like.

Thanks Alex, it really does look very good.

If you are looking for a highly professional, efficient and friendly painting company, Painted Surfaces should be your choice. Alex came to us highly recommended through a personal contact. We contracted Alex to paint the entire exterior of our house. From the initial planning, estimates, and throughout the entire job, it was a pleasure to have him here. His work, and that of the crew, was immaculate and not a drip in sight. If you would like to see it, please arrange with Alex, and we'd be happy to show you the finished job.

We were given Alex's number by a colleague who was very happy with the service he had received and we're really pleased that we gave him a call.

Alex offered a free itemised quote which arrived quickly and was competitive and fair. He has a professional approach to work and is honest and friendly.

Despite us taking a couple of months to get into a position when we were ready for him to start work, he honoured his original quote and arranged a start date at the earliest convienience.

His team have transformed our landing and stairs with their work! The preparation of the walls was completed to such a high standard that they look like they have been plastered as well as painted and the overall finish is excellent.

We were comfortable and confident to leave Alex's and Co with keys to our home whilst we were at work or away and have had no hesiitation in recommending him to friends who have already used his service and are equally satisfied.

We hope to see you again soon, thank you!

Verwood 2018

Alex's advice and quality of workmanship has been outstanding throughout this project.

He took us through all the options for the various areas of our home (the whole place needed stripping back and starting from fresh), and with the help of his team they have left us with a result we couldn't be happier with.

Brilliant attention to detail, thoroughly polite, great to work with and always clean and tidy - the whole team have been grand. We'll certainly be using them for future work, and would not hesitate recommending them to anyone.


Alex and his team have just completed decorating an entire house for us. The standard of workmanship was extremely high, they were always punctual, worked on the days and times agreed in advance and were particular in clearing up after themselves every day.

Alex is a perfectionist, a great deal of care is taken on the preparation work and this is very clear to see in the finished product. The team were always cheerful and worked extremely hard to finish the job within a set timescale.

Thank you, Alex, we are delighted with the result and we have no hesitation on recommending you to anyone who is looking for a professional to decorate their home. We would not contemplate using anyone else.

Painted Surfaces came recommended by two separate friends before we even thought about decorating the outside of our house.

Alex and his team were very professional and on site by 8am every morning.

They were always considerate and tidy the time they were at our house and a neat professional job was done.

I would not hesitate to recommend Painted Surfaces to friends and family.

Thank you for all your help in planning our redecoration.

We are thrilled!

Clive and Gloria
from Braidley Road, Bournemouth

Painted Surfaces came highly recommended to me via other contented neighbours who had used Alex previously. The work on the house included, painting the entirety of the exterior pebble dash, all metal pipework, exterior window frames, metal railings and complete side garage.

Starting every morning at 8am sharp, Alex was always willing to offer ideas on how best to complete any additional task I threw his way and it was a pleasure dealing with him on all fronts.

All work was completed to a very high standard and hence I will definitely use Alex for any future work required at the house, interior or exterior; I highly recommend Alex to you for any painting work you need completing.

Thanks again Alex

Lesley and Carl of West Moors would highly recommend Painted Surfaces. We are delighted with the quality of the work done on our property. We have had interior and exterior work carried out to a very high standard.

We are a busy working family and really appreciated that the work was done fitting in and around the family schedule, quickly and efficiently. By the time the work was completed it looked like we had new rooms. It really did transform the place.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Alex of Painted Surfaces. On my house he carried out some large scale exterior painting in an excellent fashion.

He is an energetic worker, and it was sometimes difficult to get him to take a break for a cup of tea! The painting was done to a very high standard and I was very pleased with the overall finished work. The job was done on time and within the cost estimate. Happy Customer.

from Penn Hill Avenue, Poole

The level of his work is most satisfactory, with lots of good advice and helpful ideas. Cannot fault his cleanliness, always careful to cover everything. Always arrives when he says and lets you know if he is running late. Very important!

After using Alex for both inside and out of our house I would definitely recommend him, and have. Finally not only is he a very pleasant man, totally trustworthy too.

from Winton

I found Alex and Painted Surfaces to be really exceptionally helpful. I received very detailed quotes and all along the job, Alex checked that I was happy with the work. A really excellent service. They always came when they said they would - very punctual.

They quietly just got on with the job and were great to have around. I would whole-heartedly recommend Painted Surfaces.

Boscombe East, Bournemouth

I have no hesitation in recommending Alex (Painted Surfaces) to potential clients. He did extensive work for us and the quality of work exceeded our expectations. He is diligent, trustworthy, highly skilled, and equally importantly, he keeps to agreed schedules. We would employ him again as he is a craftsman of the highest order.

Liam Scanlan
Penn Hill Avenue, Poole

'Alex (Painted Surfaces) came to paint the outside of our house after we admired the fantastic job he had done on our neighbour's house. What impressed us the most was the meticulous nature in which he worked, masking everything and not a trace of paint splattered anywhere other than on the house!

We were equally impressed when he worked on ours. Not only was his quote very reasonable but he was punctual, thorough and careful, he even won the dog over!

We would thoroughly recommend Alex to anyone and would definitely call him back next time we need the house painting'.

Dr and Lt Col Hughes,

We have employed Painted Surfaces (Alex) to carry out several medium to large painting jobs at our Church over the past couple of years (and intend to employ him to carry out further redecorating work in the future). We have found him to be hardworking, punctual and helpful and his work is to a high standard.

"Alex has decorated a number of rooms in our house - often working with members of allied trades who were unknown to him.

He had always been realistic regarding timescales and costs, and worked with us to resolve queries as they have arisen.

He is punctual, honest, courteous, and has worked around family commitments without question. He takes pride in doing a first class job and deserves to succeed."

from Queens Park, Bournemouth

A very professional firm who are rightly proud of their work. Real value for money and highly recommended.

The quality of work, in particular, attention to detail, is impressive.

"Alex redecorated my entire house recently and did a great job. He was reliable, punctual and tidy and the overall finish was excellent.
He even came back after my new carpets had been fitted and did some minor touching up where paintwork had been knocked. Definitely recommend him"

from Littledown, Bournemouth

"I had Alex paint all external painted surfaces on my 1930's detached house - soffits, fascias, windows, doors, render, even cast gutters and drainpipes. Job was outstanding, completed ahead of time with a top class finish and very reasonable rate.
Many neighbours have commented on how the work has transformed the house. Very professional, prompt and flexible where needed - will use again, and recommend to anyone".
