Our story begins in 1975 when C Day & Son Ltd was founded by Chris.  In 1995 his son Paul joined the team and subsequently achieved an NVQ level 2 qualification in painting and decorating.   Since then the business has gone from strength to strength; and as a result we have become one of the areas most successful painting and decorating companies. All of our team of painters and decorators are time served tradesmen who know what is expected of them and carry out work to the highest standard. As a family run business we are able to offer a personal and friendly service from start to finish.   We pride ourselves on providing the same courtesy, care and attention to detail; no matter how large or small the project. After being in the business for over 40 years, there isn’t much that we haven’t painted!

We have just had the outside rendering of our house painted, plus some wooden windows and cills and garage door, which was taken back to bare wood and primed and painted. All the team did a brilliant job. They were there early every day, covered all areas to be painted with dust sheets, cleaned up every night and did a brilliant job. We are thrilled with the results and would definitely recommend them. We will certainly use them for any further decorating requirements.



Very good work, very considerate team and management, they work hard and do what they say they do and I was very happy with the result.


Thanks to Chris, Paul and the team for painting my flat.  Outstanding and efficient workmanship! The flat sold straight away so I will be looking for a quote to paint my new home very soon.  Thanks Guys!

Excellent service our hall and landing is totally transformed, the wallpapering is fantastic we now play hunt the seam which is proving 10 times harder the playing “Where’s Wally”. 5 stars also for the friendly service from all your staff.


Thank you so much for painting the sills yesterday, the standard of your sanding down and paintwork is absolutely astounding and beautifully done. You are right, it is the best I have seen …… in 30 odd years of being a homeowner!

I am very happy with the finished results of the work I’d asked your company to do to my house. The decorator was always on time and worked very hard, taking great care over his work and always clearing up as much as possible at the end of the day.

We take huge pride in our work and we believe our finish is second to none. Our prices reflect the level of finish required as no two jobs are the same. Whilst some of our customers require a flawless finish with no visible imperfections, others are happy for us to simply improve on the existing paintwork.

We know from experience that our quotes are not always the cheapest, but we are certainly not the most expensive either!

The old saying ‘You get what you pay for’ is very true in this industry – a cheap paint job will lack a quality finish as a result it won’t stand the test of time.  We offer GUARANTEED workmanship from our team of fully insured, experienced decorators.

Whether you are looking to have your whole house or business premises professionally decorated or simply just want to improve the look of one room, we are happy to provide you with a free, no obligation quote.
