About Neil Callender

I started working in the decorating trade over 30 yrs ago, then working alongside my father and grandfather, two of the best decorators I have ever had the pleasure of working alongside.

I believe that proper preparation is the true key to success, if you get this part wrong you will never achieve a correct finish.,

That’s why I take great pride in my work from the first day on the job until the last, and by only using top quality trade materials, you can be assured the end product will be of a high standard.

I also carry out Ceramic tiling and paper hanging, also to a very high standard.
