Our Testimonials

Oliver’s Painting and Decorating Services have been faced with many large projects which have been completed successfully and to the very highest standard.

Below shows just a small selection of the projects that Oliver's Painting & Decorating Services have completed, together with some of the numerous comments we receive from our customers.

Walpole Court is an absolutely beautiful 17th century House and it was a great pleasure to work on. The complex is in the Dorchester area and consists of 16 cottages and 8 apartments. We had to re-build six roof vents as these were completely rotten. Other carpentry work around the site was also carried out, including extensive work on all three archways and both side gates. We had fixed scaffolding around the roof vents and re-painted them.

Bosham Hoe - We have done painting, decorating and property maintenance work for this customer for many years. We have recently re-tiled two bathroom floors with under floor heating. We’ve also re-plastered three rooms and redecorated the internal of the whole property. We painted the external four years ago and it is still in very good order. Over the years, we have also done carpentry work and various other jobs for this

Fullands House is an impressive Grade 2 listed Georgian building with a complex of 29 properties; 17 cottages and 12 apartments. This was another successful site. We completed a lot of carpentry work, including replacing part of a conservatory.


Bevoius Mansion: this particular project was neglected for many years as you can see from the before photographs. However, by the time we finished with project it was back to excellent condition. The house was divided into 5 flats some years ago. Fixed scaffolding was required all the way around.

Here is a selection of comments from previous clients of ours. (Full name and address can be supplied upon request)

"Over the last five years, Christian Oliver has painted and decorated the exterior and the entire interior of our house. He takes care over preparation and materials and we have been very satisfied with his work. Christian and Susan are working hard to build a business that genuinely delivers value for money."

Mr and Mrs M, Westbourne

"We have used Oliver’s Decorating on a number of occasions and have found their work to be fantastic. Christian Oliver is a breath of fresh air! Nothing is ever too much trouble for him; he is exceptionally trustworthy and very realistic. I think it’s very rare these days to find someone who you can say ‘just get on with it’ and who will not only do that but do it on time, to budget and to a very high standard. I would highly recommend Oliver’s decorating and look forward to working with them for a long time to come."

Mrs J, management agency Bishop’s Waltham

"To whom it may concern, I retained Mr Oliver to paint the outside of the house, both walls and woodwork. The work was carried out speedily and to my entire satisfaction. Should the need arise, I would not hesitate to seek Mr Oliver’s assistance again."

Mr B, West Meon

"I would like to confirm that I attended site to undertake an inspection. The work undertaken was to an extremely high standard and the residents and our client have spoken very highly of you and your co-workers. Please be advised that we will be in further contact requesting tenders as and when other redecoration contracts fall due as I am keen for your company to be used on other properties under our management."

Mrs M, management agency Fareham

"A really excellent professional job with a high standard of finish. Very reliable. I would recommend them."

A recommendation from Mr S, Westbourne to Checkatrade

"Dear Christian, I would like to thank you for the extraordinary effort and enthusiasm made by your company in establishing our relocated office. To be able to commission substantial decorating work and complete the same with such a short turnaround time was indeed remarkable. Moreover the completed decoration work was of an excellent standard. I am pleased to be able to recommend you to other potential clients."

Mr W, Petersfield

"Dear Christian, The standard of workmanship was excellent and I was particularly impressed with the effort taken over the preparation of the windows. I was also pleased to note that your Company only uses high quality products, which ensures a lasting and durable finish. I found your decorators very professional and reliable and I would be happy to recommend your Company to friends."

Mrs B, Exton

"To whom it may concern, Mr Christian Oliver has been my primary contractor for all decorating work, both internal and external, at my house in Emsworth since October 2003. In this period he has redecorated the exterior of the house and the studio in the garden, and redecorated the sitting room, stairwell and hall. He has also stripped down and repainted a large white garden seat in his workshop over the winter months. Every job he has undertaken for me he has done exceptionally well, and he sets a standard which very few local decorators can match. He and his highly skilled staff go to considerable trouble to achieve the highest standards, and he allocates as much time as the job needs – there are no unfinished areas or short cuts. He exercises tight personal supervision on every job he undertakes. In short, he is a true craftsman. Such high standards are not cheap, but his estimating is always fair and reasonable, and he sticks to his estimates even when he encounters unexpected problems. He makes it clear from the outset what his estimates include, and what they do not. He is entirely trustworthy, and can be left to work in an empty house with confidence. It has been a pleasure to employ him, and I will continue to seek his services when I require them. I would have no hesitation in recommending him highly to other customers."
