I’ve used Distinctive Painting for many jobs over the years, both internal and external, as well as for kitchen cabinet painting, and have always found Martin and his team to be great value, and very professional, always producing a high quality finish. Over the years, I have recommended him to many people, who have also been more than happy with the service provided.

Michael O’Dwyer

Martin from Distinctive Painting recently completed a full interior painting job on my house which I was putting on the market. I am extremely happy with the finished product, it is a first class job. Martin is a very professional and experienced painter and decorator, his work is to a very high standard and is punctual and tidy. Before the start Martin discussed the proposed work and quickly provided a thorough and detailed quotation. When the work got underway he had attention to detail, offered advice, solved problems that arose and clearly explained what he was going to do at each stage of the process. It was a pleasure to deal with Martin and I am delighted with the transformation of all of the rooms and feel it is a superb job overall on completion. I would have no hesitation is recommending Distinctive Painting to others. You can relax and know that the work is in very good hands and he will advise you every step of the way.
Thank you Martin.
