Customer Testimonials

It was the name that took our eye when researching for a professional to do some refurbishing for us. “PAINTBOX”. It just conjured up vibrant colours and artistic tendencies. What a good move it was on our part to contact Joe. The first visit we had from Joe was to talk about the job as a whole. Cost, materials, colours, time and dates. On the chosen day work started promptly at the agreed time of 8:30am and finished on the agreed date. Words like cleanliness, thoroughness, honesty and politeness spring to mind. Would we use PAINTBOX again? Oh Yes, Most certainly.
Mr & Mrs D. Butler – Eastwood


We have known Joe for the past 2 years & have been delighted with all the work he has performed for us. We find Joe to be extremely pleasant, hardworking, trustworthy & reliable. Joe’s work is always to a high professional standard. We also like the way Joe is always on time & that he leaves the property neat & tidy.
Mr J. Gellion – Kimberley


I have used Joe at Paintbox three times to decorate my house. He is an efficient and careful decorator who is totally reliable. I am very pleased with the results. The last job was a total re-decoration of the house and some of the work was awkward filling-in of cracks in plaster and this is done with great care. I have also used Joe to strip and polish two wooden floors and the results were very good and professional. Joe is always considerate. I can recommend him without any hesitation.

Before retiring, I was a Management surveyor for FPDSavills. The Property Consultants and Paintbox would have been included on the Company’s preferred contractors list to carry out work on some of the many commercial and retail properties managed by FPDSavalls.

I initially made contact as a result of an advert in the local newspaper 2 years ago. Joe’s workmanship is a high standard. He is very obliging and sensitive to the needs of the customer. He is accommodating and fits the decorating in around my requirements. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

I have known Joseph over ten years throughout a series of jobs he has done for me in various houses. As he came highly recommended from a friend, I did not hesitate giving him the first job. He proved himself worthy from then on, as honest, reliable, thorough and very fair in his prices. I have always been completely satisfied with the results of Joseph’s work. As he was recommended to me, I have no doubt in endorsing PAINTBOX to any one
Mr T. Comas – The Park


Joe, I felt I had to congratulate you on the excellent standard of decorating that you recently did for me. You did exactly what you described on your initial visit to my house and the overall level of finish and quality of work exceeded my expectations. When one finds a tradesman who can be relied on will certainly get more work from me and that of my friends some of them will be contacting you shortly. Thank you for a job well done!
Mr J. Cliff – Eastwood


We have been using Joseph since we came from Spain almost 9 years ago. We substantially renovated our 3 houses. We initially employed two other sets of painters but soon found the work of Joseph to be more professional, creative, understanding of our wishes and very competitive. We have used him consistently over the ensuing 8 years for all of our interior painting work as well as some wood restoration. Joseph has been reliable, trustworthy and accommodating, He has also been involved with a substantially larger project (a small hotel) for friends of ours whom I know were very satisfied with the work. All in all I would have no question in recommending Joseph as a painter for projects both small and large

I am so very pleased by his standard of work. I would recommend him for any painting and papering.
