Ernest did a job on short notice by moving things around. Really appreciated the effort. Was always on time, polite and we were really happy with the finish. We will be using him again

Very tidy and neat job

Rated 40/40

We are very pleased with the quality and timeliness of the work carried out. Each day the property was left clean and tidy. Ernest was friendly, easy to deal with and kept us informed of progress. Weare very happy with the work carried out.

Rated 40/40

We value good communication from traders very highly and Ernest earned top marks throughout. He explained what was required and when work would be carried out. The job itself was first class and Ernest even carried out some extra work filling in some gaps around the house. Excellent.

Rated 40/40

Ernest viewed the room then explained in detail all the work that would be required. When on site he ensured that all of the ill-fitting skirting now sits close to the wall and repaired any wear and tear damage. In addition he skimmed the wall behind the radiator (removed for job) so that area, although hidden, has a perfectly smooth finish as the remaining wall space. At the start of the job, dust sheets were laid wherever Ernest had access, vaccuuming and wipe-down done on completion.

Reliable and first class work at reasonable cost

EDC Painters, headed by Ernest are very reliable and trustworthy.
Ernest replies promptly to enquires and keeps customer informed of progress throughout. He offers sound advice, provides detailed and reasonable quote for all work involved. His work and attention to detail is excellent which combined with his good timekeeping, thoughtful area preparation & end-of-day/job tidying, all keeping within time schedule makes him the ideal tradesman to have on site. We can wholeheartedly recommend EDCPAINTERS - the proof being this is return custom from us and certainly won’t be the last.

Good work done. Returned to do remedial work after floor fitters completed work. Excellent & conscientious

Perfectly Decorated House

Cannot fault EDC in any way, they were hard working, professionals with great attention to detail. Would highly recommend Ernest and George to anyone. Will definitely use again if any decorating required in future. Left the house spotless too. Very good value for money.

Rated 39/40

Very pleased with the end result of the work carried out. Very professional and reliable and nothing was too much trouble. The standard of work has already been noticed by neighbours. 

First Class Service

I’ve just had some decorating work carried out by Ernest and can honestly say he is by far the best decorator I’ve used over the years. He is efficient, professional and friendly, he left my house immaculate and his attention to detail is second to none. Price was excellent for the level of work done, he also offered good advice and really went above and beyond, so much so that I’m having him back to complete further decorating shortly. I would wholeheartedly recommend him if you want a quality job completed on time, at a good price


Excellent job completed by Ernest. Very professional, tidy and thorough. He took the time to understand what we wanted and provided great advice to make sure the finish was 1st class. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Rated 38/40

Very professional. Very tidy. Came on time. Because we were having carpets laid, they offered to come back if skirtings were needing touching up.

Very Good Service

Very good professional service. 1st class finish. Would use again & recommend to friends & family.

Great Work. No Hassle

EDC Painters and Decorators have worked on our property a number of times. On each occasion the work has been completed to a high standard, further to that in completing the work any issue or problems that have arisen have been effectively dealt with utilising an obvious wealth of experience. Finally and importantly we have always found that EDC have treated our home with the utmost care and respect, leaving it neat, clean and clear of any sign of the disruption of work being done. We would highly recommend using EDC.

Excellent service at an affordable price

High Quality

The work was done to a very high standard. It’s nice to see someone clearly take pride in their work and approach the job as if it was work on their own home. The job wascarried out cleanly and with attention to detail.


The cost was very reasonable and lower than we’ve been charged by others for similar work. No surprise charges added on which was generous given we got a few things which weren’t asked for when quoting. We received a professional invoice and were able to pay by bank transfer, no need to try getting fist fulls of notes from the cash machine.


The work was due to start Tuesday or Wednesday and be finished by Friday. It started first thing Tuesday morning and was completed ahead of schedule around Thursday lunchtime. This was a first for us especially since it was clear no corners had been cut (literally or figuratively).

We are extremely satisfied, would use this company again and gladly recommend anyone do the same.

High Quality Service

Reliable and friendly service. Great price for a job well done. Would not hesitate to use the EDC painters & decorators again.
