What our customers say about us

leave your testimonial here


We are really proud of our workmanship ... take a look below to see what our customers say about us ...


The exterior of my house had been badly in need of repainting for far too long.The front door, in particular, a dull, worn-out, muddy brown had become a dampener of spirits. I found CAL through their website which, unlike some sites, was professional and so encouraged me to contact them, which led to a visit from Colin. His estimate-assessing visit was also helpful to me in sharpening up my views on what I wanted and whether this was the company to do it. After a covid engendered interruption, during in which they kept in contact, work started on the agreed time and finished on time. (Good communication with the customer is one of their strengths.) I had expected a good job but I had no idea just how superb the result would be. The front door is the star. It has attracted countless plaudits and strokes of admiration. The work was meticulous, thorough and beautifully executed. They were efficient, impressively knowledgeable and pleasant. The very high standards and enthusiasm brought to the work are rare and special. I’ve booked them for internal decorating next year.

My very elderly mother lives with me and has been classed as vulnerable under the COVID-19 rules. It was very important that my mother felt comfortable with the decorators that came into my home. After seeking out a few different companies, I felt that CAL Decorators were ideal. They were professional, courteous, considerate and so helpful with my mother who was in the house on her own. They even extended this towards Henry, our 1 year old Basset Hound, who absolutely adored them and still waits by the door today for them to arrive. Their eye for detail and finish is perfect. Thank you for a super job. Will see you again soon.

CAL has just completed the painting of our new build house - nice people and very pleased with their work.

Anthony P

We’ve used CAL Decorators for years and just had our hall stairs and landing and toilet wallpapered and painted. Colin and his sons are professional and tidy decorators. I work from home and they quietly got on with the decorating without disturbing me. They take pride in their work and we’re very pleased with the finished job.

The highest quality finish with the most professional manner. The attention to detail is excellent & at a reasonable price. Colin and his team took all our changes and requests on board and could not be more helpful. The only decorators I would use. Thank you for all your help.

Five star service. Thank you.

Colin and his two boys have decorated most of the rooms in our house over the last three years. We have nothing but praise for their work. They are very efficient, tidy, good timekeepers and nothing is too much trouble. We highly recommend them.

Leonard T

Colin and his sons were hired to redecorate a large commercial office space for an end of tenancy handover. They have been professional from start to finish. They communicated exceptionally well and kept me informed along the way. The job is now finished and it's been completed to a high standard and the office has been left in an immaculate condition. They work as a great team and are friendly and approachable. I would use Colin and his sons again, a family business with a great work ethic. Thank you.

Nicky G

Once again Colin and his son Cory have done an excellent job in decorating for us, this time our bedroom. Everything was done efficiently, tidily and with the minimum of disruption. They are obliging, courteous and friendly. We cannot fault them in any way and have no hesitation in recommending Colin and his two boys.

Janet & Len T

We found CAL Decorators looking for local tradesmen with good reviews. Colin decorated the small bedroom as the first project. His attention to detail with the preparation and painting was second to none. Colin did such a good job, we asked him back to paint the hall, stairs, landing and kitchen. Thank you Colin for a professional job.

Paul F

CAL Decorators have just finished work in our back garden. They had a huge job of painting all my fences, raised sleeper garden beds, a pergola, a garden shed and a summer house! Aaron & Corey worked tirelessly in the sweltering heat and were always polite, courteous and happy in their work. Aaron & Corey did an amazing job and the finish was just excellent. They even fixed my pond wooden bridge handrails and treated it ... It looks brand new! Nothing was too much trouble and now my garden looks absolutely amazing!!! All thanks to the hard work from CAL Decorators. We would have no hesitation in recommending CAL Decorators for any painting job - inside or outside! Thank you both so much. We are truly grateful.

John & Iris

CAL have consistent high standards and we have been very pleased with the work completed on our projects in Gloucester. Colin, Aaron and Corey are a pleasure to work with and always willing to accommodate last minute requests or design changes.

Colin and Aaron recently painted our office as part of a total refurbishment, which was quite a task as I dont think it has been touched for years!! They did a great job, worked really hard, were very friendly and left everything spotless! (They even put up with our cheek and banter) Definitely would recommend CAL painters to anyone.

Thank you Colin and Aaron for completing yet another decorating project on time, to budget and to a high quality of workmanship. I guess I have now lost my job as the home decorator but am more than pleased to hand it to CAL Decorators, who will be called on again for our next decorating job. I will certainly be very happy to recommend you to anyone wanting their house decorated to the highest standards.

Len Thwaite

The painting and clean service of these family painters is way beyond expectations. Their work is an absolute credit to the standards of years past. We cannot stop looking at our "new kitchen" and feel we are so lucky we chose (from recommendation) CAL to refirbish our kitchen.

Colin Rogers

We originally asked Cal Decorators to decorate our living and dining room. That was at the end of last year, they are now decorating our entire house such is their quality and high level of professionalism. Quite literally, they have transformed the look and feel of the house to something special. We can’t rate them highly enough and are so grateful for their work. Their work is quite simply “faultless” and it has been a joy having them in our home working. They now have a life-long customer and never again will we bother with decorating - we will simply call Cal Decorators.

Tim Perkin

We asked Colin to decorate our hallway, stairs and landings...not an insignificant task! We are over the moon with the result. The finish had been quite poor but Colin and his son have transformed the area and created an immaculate, seamless, high quality finish. I would (and will) recommend them very highly. Thank you.

Elaine Tonge

Professional work. You can really tell the difference when a job has been done by a tradesman. I must admit, I tried the painting thing, and I thought it was OK. After having Colin and his team in, I can see what I have been doing wrong all these years. The finish is EXCELLENT! love it, thank you Colin.

Stephen T

Colin at CAL Decorators did an excepionally good job in decorating our lounge. He completed the job ahead of schedule. His workmanship was faultness. He is a cheerful and pleasant person and a very clean worker. I would not hesitate to recommend him wholeheartedly.

Robert C

Colin and Aaron did an amazing job transforming our hall, stairs and landing. Really thrilled with end result. They worked extremely hard to complete the job on time, left everything tidy every day and were polite and friendly. Will definitely use again, so pleased to find them.

Kathy M

The service we received from Colin was great - he was really knowledgable, friendly and the finish/quality of the work is brilliant! We also really appreciated the fact that he fitted in part of the work in between other jobs (I was 7 months pregnant and we needed to move our son in to a new bedroom ASAP!). Colin is due to come back and do some further work in our house - we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
