    I have used Steve and his team on several occasions for both business and domestic premises. Most recently Chelston Decorators had painted the exterior of our 4 bed semi in Kingskerswell and our house is covered in very rough render. Part … More of the render has never been painted, so it required several coats to get it to match other parts of the house. Steve's team spent several days repairing render where necessary, completely re-rendered some sections, filled in any cracks and applied the necessary undercoats where needed. We also had to have scaffolding erected at the rear of the property which Steve organised. The result was a great success - exceeding our expectations, yet again. Our house now looks amazing. The attention to detail and workmanship is second to none. I would highly recommend their services. Carry on the great work.

Just a couple of months ago Steve's painters decorated our hall and stairs and did a lovely job. They are always … More very friendly, helpful and always tidy up after themselves. We wouldn't use anyone else.

    This company is really impressive - I kept moving the goal post of jobs needing to be done and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. From simply being asked to paint all the walls, to stripping and re-plastering almost the whole house, … More removing fireplaces, to boarding ceilings. All the men worked so hard to complete the extended work on time, they were so pleasant and helpful in helping to create the lovely home I now enjoy

    I have know & worked with Chelston Decorators for 15+ years following an initial personal recommendation around that time.I have always found proprietor Steve Owens to be a responsive and professional individual who cares about his … More customers. He gained my trust early on and maintains it.Chelston Decorators provide a range of services: over time, they have undertaken the painting, decorating & other finishing works to a variety of extension & refurbishment projects at my home.I have always been very satisfied with the end to end management service in the business that backs up the skilled tradesmen to deliver the high quality in the physical workmanship - both influence the overall customer experience.They invest time to understand customers - this helps provide mutual expectations and best service from the outset. My work can require periods of time away, sometimes at short notice.This routine was understood by Steve Owens -and we agreed ways to manage it - if I had to make changes or need time flexibility these were discussed openly and managed pragmatically with fairness.Steve Owens understands the importance of customer confidence and comfort with individuals that might be working in their private homes. In my situation work progress would benefit if it could continue during times I might be away.I commend their attention to detail here: the consistency and continuity of the individual tradesmen was excellent - as was the politeness, humour and cleanliness of the individuals who did the work.The quality of the finished product was first rate throughout.It is a pleasure to endorse & recommend this business.Peter Young

    We regularly use Chelston decorators for our business decorating requirements. They are consistently professional, good value and produce work of the highest standard. Every member of staff we have encountered has been courteous and friendly … More and they always do a good job of cleaning up any mess! Highly recommended.

    I first saw their work at one of my clients homes, the guys working on her house were extremely polite & the quality of their work was outstanding so when I had a new kitchen fitted & improvements made to the main bedroom I asked … More them to do both rooms. The bedroom had a feature wallpaper which they had a paint made to match. Everything was left pristine when the job was finished. Even though the job took a bit longer than planned as previous owners had glued several layers of chip paper on the ceiling they kept to the original price I was quoted. I was so happy with the results I immediately booked them to do the rest of my house a month later. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting decorating done.

    The first thing that impressed me about Chelston Decorators was that they fitted in with my tight timescale. The total redecoration of my apartment was done just one week after I had first contacted them and it was carried out with perfect … More quality. They did the work whilst I was away on holiday and I had no concerns leaving them in my property unattended. Everything was left clean and tidy. The cost was very good value too.

    Chelston Decorators recently completed a total redecoration of our house. We are return customers and hoped that the service would be as good as before. We weren’t disappointed. Some of the work was done when we were away and some when … More we were there. Five stars on all accounts and sensible prices. They completed decorating and other improvements, and we were overjoyed with the end results. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Job- joy to work with

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish ! Steve and his team have done a fantastic job going right through our house, top to bottom. It ended up being a full refurbishment job and we can’t sing Steve and his teams praises highly enough. They are real perfectionists, really listen to what you are trying to achieve, do a top quality job and always clear up thoroughly after each day. Steve regularly comes around to check he is happy with the quality of work and will offer sound practical suggestions to any potential issues, pulling in other trades people as required. All the team are very polite, courteous and friendly and in the end because it was such a big job they felt like one if the family. We can’t recommend them strongly enough and will always come back to Steve and his team for further work down the line. Steve is a real professional, with a lot integrity and is great to work with. Thanks for making our home so beautiful. Email

Chelston are of a size that they have all the various tradesmen available as and when you need them. Steve Owens projects the whole project effectively throughout. They have just completed a superb renovation on our large Georgian Flat in Torquay on schedule.

We have worked with chelston decorators for over 6 years and have found steve and his team consistently knowledgeable, efficient and cost effective with an excellent standard of finish. a friendly and cooperative team, chelston decorators has worked with us on a number of small projects varying from small extensions to internal re-modeling of both private properties and public buildings (i.e. schools and health authority buildings). they are used to working in occupied and unoccupied premises and are able to carry out their works with minimal supervision. the site teams understand the requirement to work safely and cleanly and always have current risk assessments and method statements on hand for the works being undertaken. we would highly recommend them for any painting and decorating contracts. if you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact myself or another member of the small works team.

Lindsay Rogers, Ld Rogers – 17th Aug 2012

Mr Uphill, The Palace Hotel, Torquay. – 16th Aug 2012

Mr uphill says of our work in this hotel:- ” the fact that chelston decorators have, year on year, returned to work in our hotel is no co-incidence but a testimony to their competitiveness, skill and ability to meet completion deadlines. they are a friendly, hard working crew who go the extra mile to ensure that they interface well with our staff and management. re-decorations to our hotel need a talented decorating team due to the intricacies of the many decorative ceiling coves and wallpapered areas. on the other hand they have taken on our external decorations programme which, due to the size and complexity of our hotel exterior has often daunted other contractors, in a forthright manner. chelston decorators have not let us down and i would recommend them without question. “
