It’s a great feeling when a customer asks me to go back and decorate another part of their house.  I get a lot of business through customer referral which proves that word of mouth really works.

GG, Westbury Leigh - August 2010
I wanted to formally thank you for the excellent work you recently completed on the outside of my house. I was most impressed by the attention to detail at the preparation stage and then your persistence in getting it right even though it meant you having to go out & buy other products.

My wife was particularly impressed by the way you cleared up every evening and left no drips or paint on adjoining areas. Your professional approach, attention to detail and finish has changed the way the house looks. I have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone I hear that needs a professional decorator who they can trust. On behalf of Nessa & myself I thank you again for a great job well done.

CW, Chartered Surveyor - House in Wincanton February 2010
I recently asked Phil Michaelson who owns M&P Decorating Solutions to carry out some internal decoration at my mother’s cottage prior to putting it on the market. With a full diary and as time was short, Phil very kindly visited my mother’s cottage on a Sunday morning to view the job and provide me with an estimate, which I regard as well beyond the call of duty on his day off.

My mother’s cottage resembles an over-stuffed junk shop or perhaps more politely an extensively furnished Aladdin's cave, which meant that Phil was continually having to move around a considerable amount of furniture in order to get the painting done.

Phil has carried out a really professional job under difficult conditions, taking endless trouble with additional preparation work where necessary and all for a very fair price. Not only is he clearly a painter through and through, but he is also a very pleasant individual to have working in one's home. He finished the job on time, nothing was too much trouble and I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else with a property in need of redecoration.

MP & KR, Norton Bavant – April 2009
It is a great pleasure to recommend Phil Michaelson’s decorating and we would not hesitate to do so.  Phil undertook the job of painting our home late January 2009.  It is not an easy house to decorate and has required patience, skill and attention to detail; equally it would not be suitable for anyone with a fear of heights!  Phil has surpassed his reputation and has provided us with a beautiful finish.  Given the complexity of the project, Phil has spent 3 months in our home and has proved himself to be a meticulous professional who has treated our home with care and respect.

We now look forward to inviting Phil over to sit and enjoy the results of all his hard work, replacing his paintbrush with a well deserved, very large, glass of wine!

JB, Frome- June 2008
Phil Michaelson began decorating my house after I was let down by a previous company.  Phil’s work was always of a high standard and his fees are very reasonable. My daughters and I now love our home since it’s had the Phil Michaelson touch (or makeover).

JL, Bradford on Avon – March 2008
We employed Phil Michaelson to work at the house of an old family friend who is in her 80’s.  She can be a very demanding lady and can test the patience of a saint.  Not only did Phil do a great job in the house, taking an old house that had no work done to it for nearly 26 years and turning it back into a lovely home, but he treated the lady with the greatest respect, doing chores around the house and going out of his way when she became unwell.

I would recommend Phil’s work, not only will he reach the expectations of his customers but he will treat your home with respect.

If you would like any further information or would like to see the completed work, please do not hesitate to ask Phil to arrange this.
