About us

CAL Painters & Decorators are a Gloucestershire based family run firm, specialising in high quality painting and decorating.

High Quality Painting & Decorating – at Competitive Rates!

Colin Liddell began working as a painter and decorator before NVQs even existed! He learnt his trade through on site apprenticeships and worked for nearly twenty years before deciding to set up his own company with wife Jo in 2001.

Colin takes great pride in all his projects and you will be hard pressed to find better workmanship. He knows that good preparation is the secret to a quality finish and is always prepared to go that extra mile to achieve perfection for you.

Jo Liddell is Colin’s wife and started her working life as a hairdresser before experiencing ten years as an Office Manager.

Today she runs the office for Colin as a partner in the firm and deals with all the administration needs of the business. As such Jo is usually your first point of contact. Her friendly and proactive manner are the perfect compliment to Colin’s own work ethic.

This hasn’t stopped Jo from also establishing herself as a self-employed hairdresser.
