Having worked with Rob for many years he now provides me with a one stop shop for all my decorating needs throughout the Company. Having previously had decorators working for me Rob was a breath of fresh air and a break from the norm. Rob has never missed a deadline yet, work is always to a first class level and I often find him on site at 5.30am or 11.30pm finish a job or not wanting to leave something for the next day. Rob is always amiable and approachable to all of my needs and I highly recommend his services, I never go anywhere else.

I have known Rob for several years during which time I have used his skills on more than one occasion as a professional painter and decorator.

I used him initially when my wife and I lived in Wells in Somerset because his quotation for the work was reasonable and competitive. He was good when giving advice on colour schemes and choice of wallpapers etc. I found Rob to be reliable and punctual and always made an early start to the working day. He was able to complete the work on our hall, sitting room and bedroom within the time-frame quoted and the quality of his work was outstanding, thorough and has lasted well.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending his services.

We would not hesitate to recommend Rob and his team at XL Décor.  He has completed a number of decorating projects for us.  The most recent was the redecoration of our kitchen and conservatory, including the re-painting of all our bespoke wooden units, ceilings, walls and woodwork.  The quality of his work is excellent and he maintains an extremely high standard of workmanship on all aspects of his work.  He is reliable, polite and works in a neat manner, leaving our home tidy at the end of each day.  He is thorough when quoting for work and we are able to depend upon his accuracy for time needed to complete a particular project. Rob is scheduled to redecorate our dining room and hallway shortly and as always, we will look forward to the finished work.

Thank you to you both for, once again, excellent work.  It is a pleasure to have you working at Rose Cottage.  The respect you pay to our home whilst here and the care and attention you apply to the finish of your work is great – thank you.

Rob painted and wall-papered the whole of our new house in Bath. The painting was done to the highest level and some of it was super tricky with, for example, reclaimed doors that needed a lot of work and a huge amount of woodwork. All of this was done to the highest possible level and never once did we see a fault or have to check any of his work. Indeed it was always him, rather than us, doing the quality control. Rob also did some very complicated wall-paper hanging for us. We bought some very unusual grass cloth paper from a fancy designer in London, who advised us to use their specialist paperer because the process is so precise, unique and involved. This person quoted an astronomical figure for it, so we asked Rob to do it and he researched it, tested it and absolutely nailed it. Perfect. We also bought another wallpaper from Zoffany that had a sort of 3D relief to it which required extremely precise lining up of the geometric pattern, whilst navigating all the bends and crannies of an old house. Again, Rob did it absolutely perfectly.

On top of all these skills, Rob is the most lovely of men. An absolute pleasure to have in the house who worked around whatever else was going on with amazing patience and grace. He is utterly reliable, very generous and lots of fun. The kids loved him and his singing is a joyous throwback to the 90’s.

Since working for us he has become a true friend and I’d never hesitate for one second to recommend him to anyone.
