Working times

Unlike some other trades we don't just work weekdays, 9-5. We understand that you need work to be done at a time which is suitable to you. We therefore offer flexible working arrangements and are happy to discuss with you any special requirements you may have.


We aim to offer a prompt and professional service, showing respect for you and your property.

Why us?

We pride ourselves on the high quality of our work and always ensure customer satisfaction.

We're often asked about the differences between someone giving you a quote over the phone for a 'paint job' and hiring a painting contractor. What they're often offering is a price for applying a coat of paint or two. Not included in the price is surface preparation and repairs - the key to a great finish - edge work, moldings and ceiling work. You may need these of course but you'll not know this from a price over the phone. You will know this once the work is complete.

At Allan Atkinson Painting and Decorating, we make sure that every nick and scratch is repaired, sealed and smoothed to create a perfect surface to paint. We use quality paint in the way you want it to give a pefect finish no matter how many coats it requires. Quality work at a fair price.
