We differ from the competition due to our flexibility. We have a handpicked and larger workforce than many similar companies, so we can take on projects of all sizes. We pride ourselves on our ability to keep to an agreed schedule and finish on time. We are accredited by Safecontractor, who monitor all aspects of safety in the workplace for both the benefit of ourselves and our clients, including COVID-19 compliance.
Frequently Asked Questions
What types of property do you decorate?
We will decorate any property, domestic or commercial. Over the 40 years that the company has been trading, we have worked in a huge variety of places from standard sized houses to vast country mansions, and from exclusive art galleries, shopping outlet centres and hospitals.
You’re based in Banbury, Oxfordshire – do you travel further than this?
We have worked all over the country but focus our work on Oxfordshire and the immediate surrounding counties.
What do I need to do to prepare for decorating in my house?
Generally speaking, the removal of everything that you can in the areas to be decorated, but please read the article on our blog for full advice on the best way to prepare for the arrival of our decorators at your property.
Do you provide free estimates?
We do, with no obligations. As soon as we can, we will arrange a site visit so that we can accurately give you a cost for the work you would like done.
Are there any hidden extras?
No, we will give you a price for the entirety of the work, labour and materials, which will be fixed unless you decide to change the scope of works, such as by changing the specification of materials or by adding or removing items to be completed.
What services do you provide?
We are painting and decorating contractors, so we concentrate solely on painting and wallpapering. We don’t do any other work such as tiling work as this is a different aspect of property renovation and would advise you to use a skilled tradesperson to achieve the best finishes, both for the tiling and the decorating. We strive to be the masters of one trade, not a Jack of all!
What types of materials do you use?
We use all of the branded, trade-quality paints and materials including designer paints and papers for which, if you have chosen to use these, the cost will be included in your quote. There are materials for all budgets and circumstances, we are happy to advise on the most practical for your project.
How about if there are areas difficult to get to, on the outside of my property for example?
We have been working with access companies for many years so we are more than happy to arrange for ways to be able to facilitate getting to every nook and corner. So whether you have particularly high gables or windows on your house or you have a Great Hall or large staircase area, we can help you to find a way to decorate these areas with the help of trusted associate companies. These costs can either be included in your quote from Leamington Interdec Services or settled for separately directly.
I have no idea what colours to choose?!
Then we can also help you with this. There are many things to take into consideration when choosing your scheme and once we have had a site visit we can advise on colours and finishes and help you to envisage how it will look in reality. We also have a qualified interior designer within the company who can help you if required.
Am I able to leave you with keys to do the work in my absence?
Of course. Many clients are still in residence when we work at their property. We can work around and with you, or you can provide us with keys to work when you are not there. We are fully insured and all of our decorators have completed basic disclosures – most have been with us for many years so are trusted, time-served craftspeople.
Do I have to clean up after you’ve finished?
All of our tradespersons will clear the area and remove all debris from the decorating process once they have completed the work. All surfaces that need protecting will have been protected and we endeavour to work with as minimal disruption as possible. Once we are finished you can then move everything back so that you can enjoy your newly decorated areas!
