my Services


Interior / exterior

Whether it's a full re-vamp indoors, or just a lick of paint to lift the front of the house, both areas are accommodated for.

Comprehensive prep-work

Undoubtedly THE most important aspect of any decorating project. Paint won't even be in eyeshot of a wall till all surfaces are fully checked and appropriately prepped. Cracks, bumps, scrapes, dodgy-filled can all be taken care of.

wallpaper stripping

Wallpaper stripping...a job a hated by so many, yet loved by so few. Luckily for you, I lean towards the latter, so can take care of the task so you don't have to.

Paint stripping

Something had a few too many coats of paint? No problem. Via the use of a number of safe methods, the paint can be removed to reveal what's been hidden for all those years.

spray finishing

Looking for that factory finish on your new units, or perhaps you have some detailed plasterwork or a fireplace that could do with a spruce-up? A brush is no good in these situations, but my professional hvlp spray system most certainly is.

stain blocking

Have a persistent stain on the ceiling from when the bath overflowed a few years back?  Or perhaps things are looking a bit drab due to too much smoke or nicotine? I'll make sure it's gone for good and back to looking like new.

Any scale of works

Can't decide whether you want just the front door re-painted or all 52 rooms? That's fine! Each and every job is treated with the same attention to detail and care - irrespective of scale.

residential / commercial / industrial

Homeowner? Letting Agent? Shop owner? No matter what your industry is, I can help you with what you need doing.

£5 million public liability insurance

Your piece of mind is paramount to me, so I am fully-insured should anything unforeseen ever happen.

Only ever trade materials used

I believe in offering not only the best service to my customers but the top trade products too. I am equipped with a wide assortment of colour charts across all major brands for you to choose between, plus I order/collect all necessary materials at no extra charge



Satisfied customers

Callum is conscientious in the extreme; he always goes above and beyond to ensure that his work is completed to the very highest standard. He is exceptionally clean and tidy and entirely professional, so pleased we went with him :)

Callum did a fantastic job decorating our lounge. We are extremely happy with it. He was always very friendly and polite and kept the area safe and tidy.
— Ms Charlton - Portsmouth
Callum is a perfectionist. His prep work is second to none, so much so we asked for Callum to do further work for us - redecorating the dining room, study and kitchen! He is clean and tidy when he is working and his skill shows. He is very polite and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend his work. Thank you so much, Callum, our rooms look like a magazine shoot!!!!
— Mrs Smith - Camberley
Callum could not have been more helpful. He fit the work in around my schedule so I didn’t have the hassle of trying to take time off work, was always on time, and, most importantly, did a really good job. I would definitely recommend him, and I will certainly go back to him for any other painting jobs we need doing.
— Mr Jakeman - Southsea
Callum was simply brilliant. Very detail-conscious, clean and careful in his work. He has checked back to make sure we are happy with the work and went the extra mile to make sure we were completely satisfied. Exceptional service, would highly recommend.
— Mr Friery - Portsmouth
The work Callum did for me was fantastic. He worked extremely hard on the preparation before starting the arduous task of painting and wallpapering. If anything needed to be changed to the plan or Callum had an idea he always approached me with his ideas and thoughts before going ahead. The quality of the outcome of work was well worth waiting for and I extremely recommend him to anyone needed a good decorator.
— Mr Philips - Cosham
Callum did an excellent job painting our whole house - turning it from a building site to a home. He had a lot of work bringing back to life some damaged mouldings and features and did not disappoint. His attention to detail is spot on and was also very helpful. He did extra work for us without asking for extra money whilst being polite and trustworthy. Highly recommend to anyone.
— Mr Larder - Southsea
Callum completed the works to a very high standard, did extra work than originally quoted and at no extra price. Both landlord and letting agent are extremely happy!
— Miss Hebbard - Southsea
Excellent work, great value for money, highly recommend. Callum has transformed my tired old hallway, into a bright, clean, beautiful space. He did the lot, from wallpaper stripping through to painting the skirting, bannisters, ceilings, front door and walls. Very happy customer!
— Mr Nolan - Southsea
Callum worked very efficiently and to a high quality, with a minimum of disruption and mess. He discussed options for varying the work requested and quickly got on with the agreed solution. I cannot recommend Callum enough, great job - looks terrific. Callum was also able to do this job for me at very short notice.
— Mr Beresford - Cosham
