Stephen Smith Decorators Ltd offers a professional painting and decorating service to commercial and domestic customers in the Preston area and further afield.
The Ashton-based company, founded in 1990 and respected by householders and construction professionals alike, is known for its reliability, friendly approach and high standards of painting and decorating.
Its time-served tradesmen are equally at home decorating a living room, painting a large block of student flats or spray-painting a new retail outlet.
Stephen aims to take all the stress out of decorating your property. Your work is done speedily, with friendly efficiency and to high standards. He highlights three key qualities.
Staff love what they do and enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done. Stephen cites a householder who recently gave them the keys, went on holiday and was delighted to return to a transformed lounge.
Stephen Smith Decorators give you value for whatever amount you want to spend, from a budget redecoration of a rental property to more expensive high-class painting of a private home involving extensive preparation.
Stephen believes it is important to do what you say, turn up when you say and complete a job in the time you say. "We do not let people down" he adds. Staff are on site at 8am and work around customer requirements.
With any potential customer, domestic or commercial, Stephen will visit your property and offer advice based on his extensive experience. If requested, he will bring paint and wallpaper samples to help you choose your scheme.
He estimates the job's cost and provides a written, itemised quotation.
During your work, Stephen visits to check on progress and to answer queries that arise.
The company has a wide portfolio of painting and decorating work in the Preston area, from the town centre where staff re-painted 504 metres of black railings surrounding Winckley Square, the town’s Victorian landmark, to the hundreds of satisfied domestic customers around Central Lancashire.
A prestige commercial project was Barton Grange's stunning new Flower Bowl leisure complex near Garstang, Preston, where Stephen Smith employees were responsible for most of the project’s decoration. They painted, sprayed and wallpapered in all areas, including corridors and toilets, high entrance hall, curling, bowling, restaurant areas and more.
"It's an amazing part of my portfolio, one of the best contracts we've ever done," he said.
Stephen, who trained and worked with Dennis A Kehoe Ltd, of Preston, is also happy decorating domestic houses - "the backbone of our business."
His company, which has featured on Preston’s Beat Radio, employs three decorators and two part-time, plus two apprentices. Tradesmen are qualified in all aspects of decorating.
