Fenella Quinn,
My house suffered some minor water damage from a burst pipe in the attic, which means one bedroom, the bathroom, landing, hall , kitchen and back of knocked through sitting room all need redecorating. Some re wallpapering, a small bit of paint stripping where it has blistered on door frames. It's a fairly small 1920s semi. Ceilings are Ok I think but may need some making good. All work was completed to a high standard.
Paul and his team were very good at working round a busy household! They are highly professional and expert tradesmen who made the potentially difficult process of having a house full of painters for three weeks as painless as it could have possibly been! They were all really sweet with the kids, the dog, the cat, you get the picture...I would absolutely recommend Paul to anyone trying to choose a decorator.
Victoria Garrod,
Paul and his team were thoroughly reliable, very efficient and pleasant to have around. They turned up quickly, got the job done cheaply, in a very short space of time, and of decent quality - exactly the ingredients I was after. I would recommend and hire them again for this sort of cheap and cheerful project.
Chris Hope,
Paul is a trust worthy tradesman who works to a very high standard. He provided a detailed quote, and completed the work on time. We will definately be employing his services again for further work. I highly recommend Paul and his assistant Winston.
Paul Tanner,
We are very happy with Paul's work. He came with a colleague and finished in half the quoted time to a very high standard. Happy to recommend him. Very friendly and thorough.
Millie Fossett,
I found Paul and Winston trustworthy and easy going. They were v. accommodating and did a great job on painting my bathroom and bedroom. They were even helpful getting me other tradesmen for other jobs (putting up blinds etc), more than helpful. Always a smile on their faces! Try them, they won't let you down!
Jo Bagenal,
Paul and his friend Winston are lovely and a really good find for work. They did my damp sealing and painting and also for my parents. I am getting further quotes for more work also from Paul.
David Reeson,
Four double sash windows and one single plus front door and gate painted, very happy.
Paul and his assistant were professional from day one. They were very thorough with their preparation and achieved a high standard of finish. A very tired looking house now looks better than ever. I would recommend P.A.Meade very highly and will probably use them again myself.
Tracie Simpson,
Applied mould treatment to a back wall in a bedroom, lined with polystyrene insulation and painted.
Professional reliable service from qualified tradesmen.
Magda Robertson,
Paul painted the outside of a 2nd floor sash window. He did a really thorough job of stripping it and adding putty, and the paintwork looks excellent. He showed up on time, and was tidy and considerate, and cleaned up well afterwards. The residents of the downstairs flat were very impressed with the fact that he was concerned about waking their baby!
Tony Mamacos,
PA Meade was great. Initially a one man job, but two people came and did it in half the time, so I didn't have to take leave. Job was done quickly and well. Will happily use again.
Mark Williams,
Very professional and reliable painting/decorating service. Our contractor was friendly, professional and very timely.
Lorna O'Brian,
We had a small kitchen ceiling that recently had a flood which required a small section ( about 12 inches by 8 inches) to be removed. This required plastering and repainting (white). Its pretty straightforward and not a big job, PA Meade completed it effortlessly.
Paul and Winston painted my ceiling and repaired water damage caused by a flood from an upstairs flat. The quality of work was excellent, for a very reasonable price, and they left everything very clean and tidy. I would definitely recommend them to others.
Christine Hinton,
Paul and Winston decorated my hall and landings. They did an excellent job and the hall looks stunning. They were a pleasure to have around as they were cheerful and pleasant. We went away for a week while the job was being done and I had complete trust in them both. I would call them back if I need any more decorating done.
Fiona Frost,
We needed to refresh two rooms before new tenants move in. Lounge needed to have cracks filled and repaint of 3 walls + ceiling. 2nd bedroom required touching up and loft hatch needed to be made good. Paul done a great job.
Paul and Winston did an amazing job at our flat. They are a couple of great guys and the cost was very reasonable. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommended them to anyone needing working done, whether it be decorating, building or carpentry work. Absolutely superb! Thanks again.
Bill and Fi,
Paul did a very good job of restoring my scruffy, flakey bathroom ceiling to it's former glory. He is very thorough, and spent a lot of time and effort to ensure he delivered a high quality finish. I found him to be very pleasant and friendly and also very good value. I would recommend him for a high quality, good value service.
Richard Rabone,
Paul turned up when he said he would to quote and to start and finish the job. Mine was only a small bathroom decorating and floor vinyl replacement job, but he did it quickly and very well.
Alison Moor,
Paul and his team were professional throughout. Turned up on time, provided a detailed quote quickly via email. The job started and finished on time. I can highly recommend them and the finish was fantastic.
Catriona Laing,
Paul and his team did a terrific job in my flat. They put extra effort into making sure the quality of their work was very high. They re wallpapered my sitting room and painted it, with perfect results- and they absolutely transformed the bathroom. They were also very nice people that it was a joy to talk to. Thanks guys!
Boba Slade-Cross,
Paul and Winston arranged skimming of walls in my bedroom which were in a pretty bad state, and then prepared and painted the whole room, including the woodwork. The quality of the work done is great, and they have completely transformed the room form how it looked before. They were friendly, punctual, accommodating, and thorough, coming back to finish off a few bits that were leftover after the main work was done. I would definitely recommend them!
Victoria Strutt,
Paul was very efficient and pleasant to work with. He was timely in providing his quote and commencing the work. The price was competitive and he advised in advance if this needed to change in anyway. Communication via email and phone was always good - he was easy to get hold of and got back to me immediately with any questions. The work was completed to a high standard and he left my flat clean and tidy. I would highly recommend him and his team. Thanks Paul!
Richard Cole,
Paul and Winston did a fantastic job painting the inside of the house, they were very accommodating to juggle the painting around the needs of looking after 2 small children, and I was more than comfortable to leave them in our house whilst we were at work. They did such a great job we asked them to stay longer and paint the outside windows, they did a great job with those also. They always turned up on time, and left the house very clean and tidy.
Rachel Nicholson,
It was a delight to have Paul and Winston working on our house. They were hard-working, reliable and discreet and we are very happy with the finished work.

A very good professional job, I am very pleased with the result. Always turned up on time, friendly and efficient. The price was very reasonable, Highly recommended.
E Rutherford,
Very approachable, gave me a quote within 2 days of contacting him and completed the job that week, which was a bonus. Was thorough in his work, professional in his approach to the job and made a great job of the wallpapering. I am very pleased with the finish and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.
Catherine Lowdon,
I would certainly recommend this company. I was impressed by their professionalism and quality of work. The team were extremely tidy and punctual and also pleasantly flexible in terms of changing requirements. As a senior facilities management professional with experience of managing many sites and contractors, I know exactly what is required from a job in terms of output and quality of work and I am happy to say that this company more than fit the bill. The works were completed around two weeks ago and I have already asked the team to quote for further, more substantial works.

Very clean and tidy, punctual and reliable. Good quality of work, very pleased.
Sophie Molyneux,
Unlike alot of other trades people I have used in the past Paul was very pro active from start to finish. Called when he said he would, turned up when he said he would and it was a very good service on all accounts. Good value for money and very thorough job. I will certainly be using him again and would recommend him!
The tradesmen was very fast and finished the job to an excellent standard.

Paul and his brother did an amazing job painting our bedroom and hallway. The quality of the painting was excellent and they were very thorough. It was important to us that this didn’t take too long but also that it wasn’t rushed and PA Meade were spot on. I can’t recommend these guys enough, we are so happy with our newly painted bedroom and hallway! Really excellent, family run business.

I posted my job in the morning and less than 2 hours later Paul had come round and actually started the prep for the job right there and then. He provided me with a very fair quote including materials and fitted in around our schedule as we wanted the job done quickly. Very professional and a very good job. I will definitely use Paul again.
Louise Kane,
Paul carried out a painting job to a very high standard. He offered us a very competitive price. He was very reliable, quoted quickly and completed the job effectively. No hesitation in rating him as an excellent painter and hope to use him again in the future!
Nikki Shearer,
very good neat and clean work.
John Miles,
Paul did a great job on redecorating my bathroom and hallway. He was always on time, often early, and had a polite and pleasant manner. My bathroom had flaking paint, some water damage and various holes to fill, but Paul and his colleague tackled it all with professionalism and attention to detail. I'd certainly call him first if I needed any further work done!
Bummi Sobaki,
The work and attention to detail was faultless. He was always on time and kept me informed throughout the timeline of the work. I would definitely recommend using this trader and I shall be conducting more work on my property and would not hesitate to use his services in the near future.
Ken Martin,
Paul and his colleague did an excellent job in replacing a water damaged section of my wallpaper. When finished you would never know that a section had been replaced. They were very peasant and cleaned up thoroughly when finished. The clean up was important to me - I didn't even have to go back and touch up the cleaning! (which is uncommon when traders have carried out work in your home). I would definitely use them again and recommend to anyone who wants a professional tidy job done. A job well done.
Miss Jeffers,
Really good job at a great price, Paul made an extra effort in preparation (putting up new lining paper, sanding down bumps and filling in gaps) which really made a difference to the end result - rather than just painting over what was already there. No hesitation in recommending.
John Downing,
Paul did a professional job painting my lounge and hallway. He arrived promptly, worked hard to an excellent standard and very importantly cleared up afterwards before leaving. A pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend him.
Claire Hussey,
Paul was very professional and accommodating, paying attention to the little details. We were very pleased with the work that he did.
Jenny Roebuck,
Paul payed us a visit and explained exactly what need to be done and what protection should be in place. He worked solidly for two days and the result is beautiful. We will be asking Paul to come back to paint our windows when the weather are warmer. Highly recommended.
Xu Wang,
Paul was quick to respond to my original request and was quickly able to pop in to give me a quote. He was very friendly, professional and flexible. The work quality was great and I would definitely use him again.
Anna Haupt,
High quality job and affordable price. Also a friendly and sincere person, would recommend to anyone. My Catford maisonnette was rented very quickly after his work. Emanuele
Emanuele Ciriachi,
High quality job and affordable price. Also a friendly and sincere person, would recommend to anyone. My Catford maisonnette was rented very quickly after his work.
Emanuele Ciriachi,
Paul was very friendly, polite and trustworthy. The work carried out was excellent and his quote was reasonable. My only comment would be that when the work was carried out there was an increase in cost above what was originally quoted. I appreciate that this was due to unforeseen damage to the plaster work, but I did think that the overall price then became slightly expensive for what was quite a small job. However Paul did also do some extra touching up in other areas too, at a very low cost. V Good!
Felicity Reese,
They were clean, quick and reliable. It was amazing how they cleaned the area in which they were working. They worked without inconveniencing us the people who lived in the flat. I would recommend them for any job.
