Client Testimonials

Paul Cain & Gareth Harper have been the sole decorators of the interior and exterior of my homes since 1992. These properties included two large five bedroom detached houses and a two bedroom flat in South Kensington. At all times they have conducted themselves in a professional, polite & friendly manner and i have been completely satisfied with the results. They have offered sensible advice regarding colour and finishes and have a thorough knowledge of all the products available. High standards have been maintained and their attention to detail has always impressed me. They have consistently worked unobtrusively both inside and outside my home and ensured a minimum level of disruption to myself and my family, working in an organised and methodical manner. Paul & Gareth have at all time been accommodating and punctual and nothing has ever been too much trouble. I have trusted them completely and there have been times when we have had a family holiday whilst work was completed. I would not hesitate in recommending their services.

We were looking for a decorator to do some work for us in our new bungalow and our neighbour highly recommended a local company, Harper & Cain, who he has used for many years. We have used them for two projects now and were so pleased with them that we have asked them to return for a third. These guys are first class in every way; reliable, extremely tidy, efficient and so keen to give the customer what they want at all times ensuring that a quality finish is always provided. We would have no hesitation in recommending this friendly local company.

I have been using Harper & Cain for a variety of decorating services on a number of projects for years.  They are a pleasure to deal with, have always been reliable and are very considerate to make sure they cause as little disruption as possible. Most importantly, they have a great eye for detail and so their work is fantastic. I really wouldn't use anyone else and I would highly recommend them.

Annette, Hampstead, London


We have used Harper and Cain over the past 25 years and the standard of their workmanship is excellent. They are clean, tidy, polite, very helpful and we would certainly recommend them.

Peter and Jacqui, Benfleet, Essex


Harper and Cain have worked for us for many years decorating both the inside and outside of the house.  They work quickly, cleanly and very efficiently and nothing is too much trouble. Paul is outstanding at wall papering and Gareth painting. They are a pleasure to have in the house but we often leave them to it and go away and come back to a newly decorated room! I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
