Painters & Decorators

It can be difficult to find good local Painters & Decorators. All Painters & Decorators on TrustATrader are vetted and reviewed to help you find the best trader for the job.

Choosing the right painter and decorator can be a minefield. Trust A Trader is on hand to help, with our easy to use directory of rated and reviewed painters and decorators near you.

It is only when you start looking for a painter and decorator near you that you realise that the market is awash with local people offering their services at a range of prices, spanning from unfeasibly cheap to impossibly expensive. Some people choose their painter and decorator based on price alone, using the rationale that either the cheaper ones are better value for money or the more expensive ones offer better quality service. In fact, neither tactic is good; price is not necessarily a good indication of either value or quality. No amount of training or advertising can replace outstanding attention to detail or years of experience and, if you employ a substandard painter and decorator, you will be staring at the errors for years to come. Trust A Trader can help you to make sure that you choose the right one.

Trusted Painters & Decorators in the following locations

Vetted and Accredited

All of the painters and decorators registered in our directory have been checked out by us to make sure that they are appropriately insured and qualified to do the work that they offer on their Trust A Trader profile. Before a trader can be considered for Trust A trader membership, we also ask them to provide us with five references from former customers, who we are able to contact to verify that they are genuine. Once a trader has passed our strict admission process, they are warmly welcomed to the Trust A Trader family. Their details are added to our online directory and they are invited to customise their profile page.

On a trader’s profile, you will find details of the individual or organisation, including their location, a sample of jobs that they take on, case studies and more. You will also find direct links to email or SMS message the trader with your query; you can literally get in touch with them at the touch of a button.


We know it can be tough knowing who to trust, which is why we don’t just ask you to take our word for it, when you could hear the views of other customers. All of the traders listed in our directory have been rated and reviewed by people with first-hand experience of the services that they offer. Traders are rated across six categories, including punctuality, cleanliness and value, and are awarded a star rating of up to five stars which allows you to see, at a glance, how others rate the service that they received. In addition to the star rating, reviewers are invited to give a written review to provide more details about the nature of work and their overall opinion.

Information Painters and Decorators

From interior design projects to exterior paintwork, decorating is about much more that slapping on a bit of paint and hoping for the best. It takes time, skill and years of experience to know the best paints to use for a particular job; with so many to choose from, a professional will be able to recommend the most appropriate materials to give you a great finish that will last for years.

When it comes to painting and decorating, preparation is key; failure to prep the surface before starting will result in a poor-quality finish and mean that wallpaper is more likely to peel, and paint to chip away. If you opt for the cheapest painter and decorator that you can find, it is likely to be a false economy; the chances are that they will scrimp on paint quality and preparation time.  When talking to painters and decorators, ask them how long they anticipate the new paintwork to last, and don’t forget to check their reviews.
