Jeff Pepperell has just painted some parts of the external woodwork of my house, I found him to me very professional and wouldn't hesitate to recommended him. I will definitely use him again.

We used Avonvale for a 2 floor extension to our Victorian house that effectively meant replacing our existing dining room, utility, bathroom and a bedroom with much bigger versions. The work was complicated by the fact that we were living in the house throughout the work and that we needed the existing upstairs bathroom to be retained until the latest possible moment. This meant building the new structure around the existing upstairs bathroom. We supplied new fittings and tiles where needed but the bath, sink and loo from the existing bathroom needed to be moved to the new one. Rob gave one of the most detailed quotes and gave good confidence that he had included everything. The negotiation was straight forward and open, and we agreed a simple contract based on the Which Trusted Trader template. Rob and his team did a great job in getting all of the work done with us still being able to live in the house, with a special mention for Phil who lead the work on site and who made sure we were involved in all of the key steps, giving us warnings of anything we needed to be aware of for the week or two ahead. Possibly the two biggest worries when doing a major extension are expensive variations or the builder leaving the job part way through. Because of the age of the house we came across a couple of major problems where the drawings did not match the reality discovered as the existing walls and ceilings were removed. This is where Rob really starred. In both cases Rob and Phil came up with a good alternative solution, checked the acceptability of that with the building control officer, and then gave a detailed quote for the additional work required that was very fair. And, despite these major setbacks, they continued with other work on site until these issues were sorted out, and finished all the work pretty much on time allowing for the extra work. At the end we reviewed all the different variations (plus and minus) and Rob made a very fair offer which we agreed upon.

Just had Pete and his son Sam in to decorate our house this week. Lovely friendly blokes, and they've done a brilliant job in all four rooms, taking great care to keep everything clean and tidy. I certainly recommend them.

Mr Pepperell has decorated our dining room, two bedrooms and a sun room, within the past 12 months. His workmanship is excellent, he is meticulous, clean and tidy, reliable, pleasant and obliging, and a good time-keeper. Probably not the cheapest, but we recommend him unreservedly, and will use him again.

Would totally recommend Pauline. She is expert at her job, friendly, efficient and works the whole day through. Was more than happy to leave her unattended knowing she is trustworthy. The decorating has been finished to a very high standard and she has done a couple of extra bits without any complaint.. She has cleaned up at each stage of the work, always leaving the house clean and tidy at the end of the day. Have already booked her services for a couple more weeks' work. Fantastic find!

We have employed Pauline on various painting and decorating jobs, from completely doing out new flats to freshening up existing accommodation, inside and out, and have always found her work to be excellent. Good time keeping, reliable, economic, trustworthy. We have been very happy with her work and will be employing her again.

We had 3 quotes and Mr. Peperell's quote was the highest but we were impressed with the thoroughness of his proposals and the result of his work has been very satisfactory.

Good quality of work. He made some helpful, and much appreciated, suggestions when he thought my plans were unwise! Reliable and friendly.

The work consisted of repainting ceiling and walls of large kitchen/dining area, also replacing tiled surface around bath. Rob responded quickly with a competitive estimate and Luke completed the work efficiently to our complete satisfation. I would highly recommend this firm and intend to use them again

Mr Pepperell has just completed decorating our conservatory and kitchen. His work was great, arrived when he said he would and left everything very clean and tidy. Would recommend him to Which Local members without hesitation.

An reliable father and son decorating business. A good job done and worked very cleanly. We used them 5 years ago and again this month, March 2014. Plan to use them again in the summer to paint all our windows.
