Client’s story

Unlike some of our clients, Alex wasn’t looking for a London painting and decorating company to make his spacious two-bedroom flat in Westminster his dream home. As a professional landlord,  he needed a stress-free solution to prepare the flat to hit the rental market  as soon as his long-term tenants moved out. Alex owns many flats around central London, and  was looking for a professional painting and decorating service to  help him find new tenants for his property as soon as possible.

“One of my friends, Lukas (also a professional landlord), recommended The Good Painter to me. He had used the team many times for end-of-tenancy painting and decorating for his London properties and said he was very impressed with their work.”

The Brief: painting and decorating with the future tenant in mind

Alex was more than happy to take colour advice from one of our consultants. After all, even putting together a carefully thought out neutral scheme can be quite tricky! Our colour team are experts at selecting shades for painting in situ, and take the size and orientation of the space as well as the type of property into consideration when doing so. Even the decorating trends for neutral colours change over time, and London tenants today prefer slightly warmer shades of grey and beige paints as opposed to the cooler greys that were popular a few years ago. The only request the client had for the painting and decorating team was that the materials were durable, as they needed to withstand continuous wear and tear. We painted with Dulux Trade Diamond Matt throughout to ensure longevity.

“First of all, I needed good quality finishes that will not only look good on the viewing but will also last a long time so I don’t have to get the place repainted every other year. However, I expected a great painting and decorating service as well! Working with a team who can not only help me choose the perfect colours, but who I can trust to execute the job well and leave the property sparkling clean takes one problem out of my hands! For that reason, I’ll definitely use the Good Painter the next time I need a painting and decorating service in London.”

A few questions for the client

What was the biggest challenge during the painting and decorating project?

Time was a critical factor for me. As a professional landlord in London, I have many tenants and issues to deal with every day and need to find the quickest and most effective solution for each of them. I just don’t have time to walk through the flat and check everything, having to get bits and pieces redone. I need painters and decorators that can do a great job the first time around, leaving everything spotlessly clean so that I have one less thing to worry about. The Good Painter team understood that and made sure everything was smooth and straightforward. I was so happy with the completed painting and decorating job, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

What would be your advice to someone who is planning a painting and decorating project for an investment property?

Always get your property painted after the end of the contract, as nowadays it’s just expected from any London property. Even if you do find new tenants without carrying out extensive painting and decorating, they will almost definitely ask you to redecorate and repaint before the move-in date so you might as well just get it done early.

What was the most enjoyable part of getting the property transformed by our painters and decorators?

The fact that this lovely London property got tenanted within two weeks! That and visiting the flat for the first time after the painters and decorators completed the job and seeing the finished result. It’s great when everything goes well. The team even gave me a handover document with all the chosen colours they used when painting and decorating each room, which will come in handy if ever I need a touch up.

As  a full-time worker and a father of three, I needed a hassle-free, fast and easy service. The Good Painter completed the job in no time. We felt completely relaxed and fully trusted them with the painting and decorating of the house. Everything went smoothly and with no fuss! Highly recommended!
