Painting and decorating jobs

Our handyman decorating service is for smaller painting and decorating jobs, tiling, filling in cracks, applying silicon, sanding, grouting, plaster patch repair, painting windows and touch up services.

Touch ups

We know about painting and decorating. We have provided painters and decorators in London for many years. So ,of course, we can fulfill larger projects such as painting an entire house - but they require us to send someone around for a quotation. This is free, of course. But handyman decorators are for small jobs such as re-touching paint, applying silicon and patching cracks in walls. These are performed on an hourly rate.

The Multi-trade difference

There are plenty of companies out there competing for your business - and you need to make sure you're armed with all the facts before you make a decision about which one to choose. Here are a few things to check before you decide - we're confident that if you're looking for great service you'll choose Multi-Trade!

  • Does the company or tradesperson you're considering offer free quotations?
  • Do they offer an open and honest pricing structure with no hidden costs?
  • Are their engineers certified to IEE 17th edition electrical standards as a minimum?
  • Remember - it is a legal requirement when working with gas or electricity.
  • Do they have a contactable office, not just a mobile in case of any queries?
  • Does anyone answer the phone in the day?
  • Are their tradespeople honest, reliable, polite and vetted?

If the answer to any of these questions is 'no' then give us a call - we can confidently answer 'yes' to all of these questions. Not sure? Check out our testimonials page to see what some of our previous customers think of our customer service!
