Compare quotes for interior and exterior decorating from painters and decorators across the UK with Top Tradespeople There are so many painting and decorating contractors around that it can be difficult to know where to turn when making a decision on the best one to suit your needs.  Whatever kind of services you need to find local decorating companies for, we can help you find the right local professionals for the project - compare contractors and locals who specialise in both domestic and commercial work, quickly and easily using our quotes system.

To find contractors for a range of redecoration work, simply request quotes and we will look for up to 4 local people in our UK network to provide home decorating or commercial redecoration quotes for comparison, without obligation.   Give a good description of your work to get better responses.  Hope you find a painting and decorating service you can say is 'recommended' to others locally. Request quotes via Top Tradespeople's quotes form. Give ratings and reviews on decorating and interior design services so other people can find good trusted contractors too.

Please do still post a decorating project if the exact services you need are not listed - we add categories all the time.  Choose the nearest project type and describe your decorating project in detail (e.g. brands of paint (Crown, Dulux, Homebase, B and Q), decorating techniques needed, type of wallpaper or wall covering) so we can match you with the right contractors.




The most important point is that the painting and decorating contractor is reliable, professional and will produce quality work which will make you want to show off your home to your visitors. If you are not sure where to start, this guide should help you find the best in the business.


It may seem like an easy choice to make; you have the business card for a local painter and decorator, so why not just use them?

Unfortunately, just because they are handy, it doesn’t mean they are going to produce work of a high standard.

Consider contractors who have membership of a trade Association or site which filters tradespeople.

Membership of an association may show the contractor has made a commitment to work to high standards and is qualified and experienced for the job.

Don’t be afraid to ask for proof however!

Professional Qualifications

In addition to membership, a relevant professional qualification will show the contractor’s commitment to the industry and their ability to carry their work out to a high standard.

A basic qualification such as an NVQ in Painting will show a good level of proficiency so anything higher than this will be a bonus.

A background as an apprentice with a qualification will show that the contractor has worked their way up and been through a good level of training.


Of course it’s not just about what the painting and decorating contractor has achieved on paper, it’s also about how they perform on a practical basis.

There are plenty of ways to find out more about the contractor you are considering, including asking friends and family for recommendations and checking online reviews.

Recommendations are by far the most reliable source; online reviews can unfortunately still often be made up so it is worthwhile checking as many resources as possible.


You don’t just want the cheapest option when it comes to hiring a painting and decorating contractor but you do want to ensure you get good value for money.

Compare prices and compile a list of quotes before deciding which is best to suit your budget.


When you have got your list down to a couple of contractors, you may want to seek out some references to back up their promises.

You can get a good idea of what they can offer through their reviews and testimonials but references are another way to back up what others say.

We hear a lot about cowboy tradesman who start jobs and take off with the money without finishing in the industry, so the more positive information you can find, the better.
