Over the years I've provided my painting and decorating services to hundreds of happy customers in the Cambridge area. I've put together a selection of the many unsolicited reviews and testimonials I've received from them.
Just wanted to say – I’ve been to the house and it looks really great – thank you! So much better. And it was really hassle free to organise, so thank you! It is quite rare that you book in work and it just gets done on the date agreed without any phone calls etc. I really appreciated that particularly as we’ve had a lot of hassle recently with the re-wiring etc.
This was John’s second decorating project for us in 2022. We have also used him on numerous occasions in the past and have always been delighted with his work.
John worked really hard to complete a job decorating a living room and dining room in a flat we let before a new tenant arrived. He stacked and protected the furniture without any fuss, returning it to its place at the end of the job and did a really good job. He was considerate to the neighbours and worked around the occupying tenant quietly and considerately. He worked really hard to complete the work in as little time as possible.
John decorated most of our house during 2022. Totally transformed it. Very happy with work and the advice given
John has just finished a job for me that I needed doing at very short notice following some building work and I’m very pleased with it. He always does a proper job, meaning he never cuts corners (I’ve used him a number of times before) and gives good, carefully considered advice. He is very reliable, turns up when he says he will, keeps in good communication, and is not happy until you are satisfied with the job.
John did a fantastic job on our hall stairs and landing. A lot of preparation was needed as this area had not been decorated for many years, and the prep was done to a very high standard. He was patient with my dithering about colours and his advice was spot on. He works very hard to bring the job in on time, and the final result is outstanding. All round I can recommend his work unreservedly.
John has painted the entire inside of our house in the last 6 months. He has done an amazing job for us. He has removed copious amounts of wood chip, lined walls, filled holes, plastered where necessary and kept his sense of humour! He has worked with us whilst lots of other trades have been in and still managed an excellent job. The hall stairs and landing look wonderful as do all the other rooms. We cannot recommend him enough. He’s a painter with many additional skills who will do a great job for you.
Thoroughly recommend John’s work. John rapidly provided a very reasonable quote to us to paint our bedroom and landing. He was able to carry out the work within a couple of weeks and did a great job for us. Very impressed by how quickly he completed the job.
John was recommended to us by friends who were very pleased with work he had done for them and we would certainly pass on that recommendation.
The standard of decorating he did for us is excellent – thorough preparation and meticulous finishing. He was always punctual and also gave us good advice on colour when we were undecided, which was helpful!
John did a big decorating job for us a few years ago and we were so pleased with the work that we called him back without hesitation when we moved house. The new place needed major work done to modernise it and the old decoration was tough to remove. John completed everything in good time, solved problems creatively and he has transformed the house into a lovely bright living space. He is totally reliable, punctual and just gets on with the work efficiently. His charges are very reasonable and he is a good person to deal with in every way. I would recommend his work very highly and will always call him if I need further work done in the future.
John and Hutch were great, I was moving house and they decorated before (and during) the house move. They were organised and efficient and helped with figuring out how to dismantle a large wardrobe so it could go up the stairs, they also put it back together at the top. Work far and above expected.
John (and Hutch) deserve their glowing reviews.They painted my house inside and out in a thoroughly professional manner. They helped to move furniture and tidied up after their work. They always started early at 07.30 hrs and finished early at 15.30 hrs to avoid car parking problems. Furthermore they made excellent recommendations concerning other trades they had worked with.
We were new to Cambridge and the UK, and picked John to give us a quote based on the reviews here and testimonials on his website. It was a great choice. His prices were competitive, the work was excellent, and right from the start, we found him helpful, friendly and 100% reliable. We left him our keys while we were away for a couple of months, and he finished the job and kept us updated with lots of photos by email. Highly recommended!
A breath of fresh air – none of the usual disappointments – very professional with integrity thrown in.
We were very impressed with the quality and speed of John Hammond’s work. There was very little disruption to our lives and we would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a careful, thoughtful – and very quiet! – decorating company.
I found John through his website which I found to be very professional. John is extremely reliable and did a great job. I have used him now for all my decorating needs and would happily recommend him.
John is a meticulous and very thorough workman, and an expert at repairing and restoring aged and rotten woodwork. He is highly reliable and efficient. His pricing structure is transparent and straightforward and his prices are a reasonable charge for the quality of his work.
John and his assistant have done a really professional and high quality painting (and coving and skirting) job on several occasions for us. Where necessary he has solved problems on the way, such as working out how to patch up a fireplace. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
John Hammond has done a number of painting and decorating jobs for us over recent years. His work is of the highest standard and we have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
John has undertaken a number of painting jobs for me over the past few years and I have found them to be completed to a high standard. I have trusted him with my house keys and have never had any problems. John has a very straight forward approach and when I have needed him to come back and fix a couple of snags he has done this quickly and at no extra charge for his time or materials. I will be using John again this Summer and I have recommended him to my friends.
