Graham Halpenny - Customer Reviews

If we have completed any work for you, and you would like to provide us with a review, please, review us here.

Very professional and high quality work! Had the whole flat repainted including kitchen and bathroom. Very pleased with the result, everything looks excellent. Thorough and trustworthy!
Cambridge customer
Belinda and her team redecorated my 17-yr old, tired 1-bedroom flat in Cambridge (painting, small repairs) – they did a fantastic job, and the place now looks like new again. Not only that, the Halpenny people are just very friendly human beings to have around for what was a couple of days... I am very happy with the work.
Volker Sommer Cambridge
This is the 6th time that Graham Halpenny Decorators have done work for us. Yet again the standard was excellent and met all our requirements. Jack did the painting for us and he was excellent, we would thoroughly recommend him. We are already getting a quote for the next painting job. All the decorators we have had, even on the previous decorating jobs, have all been very professional, very polite, very tidy and all done outstanding work. We would have no hesitation to recommend this company.
Gillian White
Nothing is so satisfying as finding painters and decorators who are truly professional; take a pride in their work; and are a pleasure to have around (and who are able to give sound advice on the work in hand). We have had the front and back of our house repainted, and are 100% satisfied with the work done. Graham Halpenny gave us a thorough and fair quotation for the work (and I've made a mental note never to trust anyone who gives you a figure off the top of their head, and provides no paperwork!)

Stripping, sanding, plastering, skimming and painting including woodwork

So incredibly impressed with Graham, Belinda and their team. It was a pleasure from start to finish. Belinda was always available to contact and responded quickly. The quality of their work is brilliant. They were always clean and on time. Would definitely recommend their team for anyone considering home decorations.

Decoration of living room, hall and dining room

Graham and his team were polite and helpful throughout, and did an excellent job. They were well organised and tidy, we would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you also to Belinda for putting us in touch with a carpenter and for generally keeping in touch and making sure we were happy. An excellent family firm.

Living room and kitchen redec

I was pleased that Graham and his wife Belinda could fit me in before Christmas. As a returning customer I knew my home was in safe hands. I was delighted to with the end result, neat and tidy working and a real eye for detail. It was a pleasure to have Lucy and Jack decorate my home. I would highly recommend this family company.

Painted 3 storey landing and stairs and varnished handrails

We are extremely happy with the professional finish. He tidied up every evening, so that we wouldn't have known he'd been here during the day. Perfectly happy to leave the key with him while at work. Would use again.
Mr & Mrs F
Re-skimmed cracked ceiling (covering artex). Cut and filled numerous wall cracks and made good decoration.

Very quick and neat work. Very professional. Time-keeping was perfect.
Mr R - Cambridge
Bedroom decorated

We asked Graham Halpenny to decorate a bedroom for us after having been very happy with his work on our other bedroom a couple of years ago. As before the work was completed very efficiently and quickly and the results excellent. Jack and Lucy did a superb job of transforming a very old and tired looking room to a bright and lovely space. Graham and Belinda are very helpful and easy to deal with and I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Mrs C - Cambridge
Interior painting - Very good, can't fault them.
Mr N Cambridge
Whole house redecorated and refurbished

“This is a family firm that really cares and delivers to a high standard. Belinda has been so helpful in arranging and delivering the highest standard of work throughout. She helped with binging in a plasterer electrician and carpenter.

Graham oversaw and helped with the work. Simon and Jack worked to a very high standard throughout. Great service and value. Not the cheapest quote but no hidden extras and lots of extras given to us. Second time using this company and already given them a booking for another property. If you are looking for a company that respects your home stop here.”

We had our Hairdressing Salon updated and painted by Jack. He worked hard to finnish the work quickly so that I could reopen the shop but still maintained a very high standard of work.
Emma and Denise
As a landlord, having a prompt reliable company that can turn around properties to a high standard is vital. I have been working for Graham for many years now and as he has expanded and his team has grown I am more and more impressed. Excellent attention to detail, and I can rely upon Graham to find other good trades who work to the same high standard.

Plastering whole house.
“Top class Plastering work, we were let down and Graham and his team really helped us out .They were brilliant from the word go and have restored my faith in Plastering companies. The plastering was so kind and helpful and clean. We do not hesitate to recommend this company and will use them again.”
“Graham and his team are really excellent painters and decorators - great workmanship, incredibly quick and very polite and tidy. Would thoroughly recommend and will always be using them in future. They did a fantastic job on the living room and hallway when we moved into our new home and then cam back nine months later to do some exterior work including historic railings which came up beautifully“
C Shenton Cambridge
Thank you for completing our project,the guys were very friendly and worked hard. Please pass on my thanks to Simon.

Review received for Interior decoration of the Old Telephone Exchange in Fulbourn

Graham painted our whole house, we were really pleased with the work.
It was a big job, the staff cleared up every day and took pride in their work. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
Mark and Heather
We are both very pleased with the end result, it was a bit of a leap of faith when it came to putting black on the wall but we think we got away with it!
Josh and Lucy were great and we would be happy to have the services of josh again when we redo the hall stairs and landing later this year if you can all tolerate us again!
M&E Cambridge
For your record I thought your company was brilliant & took the stress out of having to juggle two trades. Your chaps worked really hard & both the plastering and the redecorating were done to a very high standard.
You got the colours correct too for which I am very grateful.
I feel I can rely on you & will certainly use you in the future.

We choose Graham’s company because of their very quick response to our enquiry and their site visit was followed-up the next day with the quote for the work. While we were detailing the work we wanted done, they listened carefully.

They were able to start work very quickly after the site visit and Andrew arrived at 7.30 each morning and finished around 3. In the few week’s they were here, I saw that Andrew did a huge amount of work to prepare the surfaces for the final result. As we are in a Victorian property with the original sand/stone plaster, this meant a lot of preparation work had to be done!

Halfway through the project unfortunately found that one of our chosen colours did not look as we had expected. Graham brought us a massive colour chart that enabled us to choose a couple of tester pots. Andrew then painted them on the walls in different places so we could see them in different lights and we were able to choose one, which was ultimately perfect. When the gloss paint for a little too strong smelling, they helped to try and reduce the smell with lemons and water. Every day Andrew left the rooms neat and tidy.

When the work was complete we were absolutely delighted with the end result; a navy blue ceiling is not what most projects would have and Graham and Andrew took on the challenge admirably. It has resulted in a realisation of the image we had in our mind’s eye. We had a couple of spots that needed touching up once the paint had dried and settled and they came back in to complete that a few weeks later.

We were very pleased with how Graham, Belinda and Andrew helped us achieve what we were after by going above and beyond and ensuring that their customer service is excellent. I will be asking them to come back and complete more decorating work in the future.

Review received for Interior decorating in Histon

I have waited until now to leave a review, because the effectiveness of the treatment is relevant.

Details of the job:-
To remove bad mould from a bathroom ceiling and wall tops in our rental property. After removal, seal with mould sealer and re-decorate affected areas.

An excellent job, done at extremely short notice, still perfect after 18 months.
The cost was lower than I expected in view of the urgency.
Tim, Cambridge
Thank you so much for the fantastic work which Pete and Josh did for us at such short notice. You really got us out of a hole, and I was so impressed throughout - from my first contact with you through to waving the guys off at the end. The rooms look absolutely wonderful and we couldn't have asked for better before our house move.

We will definitely be in touch in the new year when we will require more interior work done, and some exterior painting as well.
Caroline, Cambridge
Valter did an exceptional job here and was polite & professional throughout, we are delighted with the results.
K Dudley, Newmarket
Once again, we’re really very appreciative of your work and of the attention to detail, courtesy, and of course, the final price!
TH Willingham
My elderly parents needed the outside of their house painted. We were worried about cost but were quoted a very reasonable price. The job was done very well. The staff were punctual and polite to my parents. I also had a very small area of my house painted outside at the same time and again the job has been done well for a very reasonable price.

Graham Halpenny Decorators did a brilliant job decorating my living room. I'm really happy with the results and the time from the initial enquiry to the end result was also very good. I intend to work with the company again when I decorate the rest of my flat.
Mark Johnston
Simon did a brilliant job with my wall papering! Graham is very pleasant and professional. Will be back for any future decorating, very impressed.

" Graham Halpenny and his team replastered the ARTEX ceilings and redecorated our 4-bedroom house. They worked closely with us and did a superb job in a remarkably short time despite having to shift furniture in all rooms. Their attitude and spirit was top notch and they did a superb job. We can without hesitation strongly recommend them to others. Louis and Anita Fleming "

" The service I received from Graham was nothing short of outstanding. I had a room in a flat that needed to be decorated quickly in time for tenants viewing the following weekend, I called up Graham based on the reviews I'd seen here, and he agreed to come out the same day and give a quote. Receiving the quotation by email an hour later and accepting it, he and his assistant were ready to start work the next day at 8am. In the evening the job had been done to my complete satisfaction, including stripping down wallpaper, making good marks from shelves, and repainting the room to a very high standard. I will be using Graham's firm for all my decorating needs from now on. "
