Mel Seaga Smith, proprietor, Paintcraft Master Decorators
Mel Seaga Smith, Proprietor

While working for other companies we found that we were frequently forced to do less of a good job than we would wish, either by not being given the resources to do the job properly, or by having our good work subsequently spoiled by that of someone less conscientious. This made it impossible to take pride in one's work, resulting in low job satisfaction.

Our solution was to set up in business together and to employ only those with similar attitudes to ourselves. We aim to make decoration and building a positive experience for our customers. To this end we aim to attract, and retain, friendly, courteous and talented painters/decorators and other tradespeople, and we try to keep the working environment harmonious for both the customer and our staff.

By being efficient and carrying out tasks in a logical order (thus doing everything only once!) we are able to offer a craftsman's approach. You can expect a high quality job, and a complete one, for the same price that you would expect to pay for an average job. We are not the cheapest, and we do not aim to be. What we offer is a complete high-quality job at a fair price.

Customer satisfaction is very important to us, so we guarantee our work. We are fully insured and members of the Painting & Decorating Association, and our service is London-wide.

Please call us on 0207 064 5284 or 07932 160003, or email mel@paintcraft.co.uk for more information or a free quote, and browse our website to find out more about our services, view photos of recent projects and read testimonials from our satisfied customers.

We look forward to being of service to you.
