To quote Tina Turner “Simply the best! Just a note to compliment Roy at DRS, As others have said, he works hard and his standard of work is superb. I needed a rush job recently and found Roy by the usual local web search, that’s always chancy and sometimes you regret it but not this time! He quoted quickly with a decent price, arrived on time and finished the job when he said he would, then popped in to do a quick re-touch to finish off without being asked – very professional and personable. In short, ‘he does what it says on his tin’, what more can anyone ask? I have a similar rush job looming and I hope he can squeeze it in, the job’s definitely his if he can! Cheers Roy, thanks a bunch.

Mr & Mrs Pickerel
Careful, meticulous and skilled craftsman…
We have employed DRS over the last ten years for various large and small-scale jobs on our 100-year-old house. Roy has a real appreciation and understanding of the approach needed to repair and decorate older properties and features, using appropriate materials. He is a careful, meticulous and skilled craftsman who goes the extra mile to obtain best results, and we have considered his work to be good value too
The latest high quality materials and techniques…
Decorating & Restoration Service has done a lot of excellent work over the past few years on our large Edwardian house. Roy has solved numerous problems that have stumped other people, including water ingress around gables, windows and doors, and tricky restoration tasks. He has always been keen to restore, preserving the character of the house, while using the latest high quality materials and techniques. I’ve been impressed by Roy’s willingness to discuss options and explain different possible approaches, and with the excellence of the decoration finish he produces. I have no hesitation in recommending him and the company.
I was impressed the pride that he took in his work…
The oak windows in the house built in 1845 are still original but were seriously rotten. I researched and came up with a company called Decorating & Restoration Service who has qualified contractors and Certificated for the use of The Repair Care System. I was impressed with the work rate of Roy and also the pride that he took in his work. When he got into the job the decay in some of the windows were much worse than appeared but nothing fazed him and with a combination of new wood, resin and putty the specialist system gave an amazing end result.
Very competent and reliable and did an excellent job…
Decorating & Restoration Service was very competent and reliable and did an excellent job on painting the exterior of our house which included some areas that were very difficult to access. Good attention to detail, Roy removed all gutters and downpipes before starting the work.
The quality of his work was of the highest order…
We were seeking some help to paint our new home (internal walls/ceilings) and came across Roy’s website following a quick Google search. Having made initial contact, immediately we heard back and Roy was willing to come over and price up the works over a weekend which was extremely helpful.
From start to finish Roy was efficient, courteous and, most importantly of all, the quality of his work was of the highest order. My wife and I were extremely impressed and delighted with the decorating, which has really helped to lift our home.
Roy’s keen eye and excellence through detail was evident on every wall and in every piece of cutting in. He was a pleasure to deal with and has a good sense of humour too! We will be in no hesitation to call on his services in future for other works around the house and can wholeheartedly recommend him to others.
