“We were looking for a custom entryway closet for our new build flat. David took the time to walk through the space with us and brainstorm the most space and cost efficient solution. Not only did David come up with a great concept for the space, but also he did so at a price significantly better than what others had quoted us. We could not have been happier with the final outcome. The level of craftsmanship and finishing were fantastic. We really enjoyed David’s company for the two days he was working in our flat – he is truly a pleasure to be around. We will certainly be calling him for any future projects in our home!”

David built the most beautiful platform bed in my daughters bedroom, it was a raised bed with an area underneath to relax in.This was built where previously there had been a fitted wardrobe which he removed and created a bespoke piece of furniture which was exactly what we needed and had asked for. Davids work is absolutely perfect. I have been working with David for over ten years and he always goes the extra mile.

My wife and I were delighted to have found David to do a large exterior redecoration of our property which was exremely tired looking after having been neglected for more than 12 years. The front door was in a dreadful state and David managed to breathe new life into it with his thorough attention to detail so it now stands proud as a feature as seen from the roadside. David coordinated the scaffolding supplier that was needed for the whole front of house redecoration and the refurbishment of many windows that weere in a state of decay , along with a rusty wrought iron staircase on our side return that now shines gleaming black after David applied several coats of Hammerite.
Thoughout David's tenure we received sage advice on many philosophical aspects of life, and the recommendation to consume maraschino cherry juice as a sleep aid was a gem for insomnia sufferers such as myself in getting back to a good nights sleep! We can thoroughly recommend David and if we weren't moving abroad next month, would certainly have him back for any other decorating projects we would be needing to have done!!

The whole resaurant was painted without the need to close, David painted between opening times or by sectioning off an area and allowing for business as usual.
Low odour paints were used and everything was always left tidy.

"David repainted my flat in Sutherland Avenue, but it wasn’t completely straightforward as there was a lot of making good of cracks and water leaks from the flat above. He took everything in his stride, and really took the time to pay attention to all the details. In the course of the job, we discovered some other things that needed doing that weren’t apparent when David first quoted. He flagged everything up to me and provided quotes for the additional work before undertaking anything. The result? My flat looks absolutely gorgeous. The care and attention he put in is shining through. I love it and can’t recommend him highly enough."

"I needed my tired looking flat repainted and was lucky to have found David to do the job as I'm very happy with the result. David repainted the whole flat including woodwork and doors, working tirelessly during the summer heatwave. He was completely trustworthy, decent, honest and reliable and looked after my flat during the week whilst I was at work. He also has lots of knowledge and creativity and offered ideas on the decor and furniture. Highly recommended."

Testimonial after wallpapering stairwell:
‘Great ! Don’t think I have fully expressed how much I Love it !!!
You’ve done a perfect job, thank you

This is my Testimony for the work David did in my flat. He is most professional, perfectionist , honest, with integrity and his time keeping is beyond anything I have seen in years. He is { One man band } who is very conscientious and goes beyond call of duty to oblige and do small favours. I am very fortunate to have met him.

"We needed a long basement hall with several doors and staircase in a Victorian house painted and given some TLC. We found the standard of David Flanagan's work to be very high. It was very thorough. We found David honest and a man of fine principle. He is hard working with an accomplished skill level and takes no short cuts. He is very personable, gives helpful advice and his costs are not unreasonable. Our only hesitancy in writing this recommendation is in thinking that the demand for his services might increase even more, making it difficult for us in the future to procure his services! In brief, David has been a pleasure to employ. Unhesitatingly we would recommend
his services to anyone.".

We recently hired David to spruce up the front of our home, which he did with care, giving a new lease of life to some rather old doors that were particularly in need of some TLC. We were really pleased with the results and we now feel inclined to soon get to grips with some further internal redecoration, in which case we will definitely call on David.

Repainted & Repaired Front Door"I would absolutely recommend David – we contacted him to carry out some repairs and decorating to our property just before we put it on the market. The work was to a really high standard and he was trustworthy and went out of his way to do a great job. In particular, David did a fantastic job on our front door which looked a bit worse for wear , and also to our original sash window, both of which are now real selling points for our property! We would definitely use David again in our next house".

Looking to have redecoration of half of my modest-sized house, I found David was well-organised, trustworthy and totally professional in his approach. A consultation prior to work commencing ensured there was complete understanding of the work to be done between him and myself. The work itself was conducted in an efficient manner that meant minimum disruption to myself. Everything was completed on time for a rather tight schedule.
I am really happy with the quality of work and standard of finish; so I would certainly recommend David for similar jobs as I intended to use his services for “phase two”.

"We hired David to repaint our ceilings after a leak. He was friendly and professional throughout the process and extremely tolerant of our little boy who was very inquisitive about the painting! David completed the work on time and the painting was done to a very high standard. David was a pleasure to have in the house! Thank you!".
Emma Dunne of Kilburn.

"Thanks David. It was great to have someone so honest, thorough and thoughtful on the job. You were a pleasure to have around and we would recommend you to anyone."

"We recently employed David Flanagan to decorate our new house, having heard about him from a friend of ours. The service he provided was not only well done but also very efficient and completed within out time schedule. Davis suggested some good ideas and techniques, recommending colours etc and also gave us a very competitive price. During the decorating work, my husband and I went on holiday and completely trusted David to carry out our instructions as well as looking after our house. When we returned, our home was spotless.
For anyone looking for a job well done with creative flair, David Flanagan is the one! "

Nicole Rose - London W9

" A big thank you to you David for your efficient and professional painting and decorating services rectifying our bathroom walls, tiles and celing caused by roof leakage. You advised us well in your quotation exactly what needed to be done. You where punctual and worked swiftly yet very neatly and the bathroom looks beautifully bright and the paint work looks flawless. I am very impressed and recommend you and will definitely use your services again. Good value for money! Thanks"

job"David was the only individual sorry enough to actually deign to quote for our office refurbishment, so I felt a little guilty when we had the temerity to tell him that the job was his if he would knock 10% off. which - incredibly - he did. When he arrived it was a joy to provide him with tea and biscuits, whilst he regaled us all with tales of his illustrious past, he even did a little painting. Being aware of an immutable deadline, he worked all the hours needed, brought in extra staff when his brief was expanded beyond the original specification and we were able to open on schedule with offices that well met everybody's expectations. Since opening, the presentation of the offices have been much complemented, for which praise must be given to Mr Flanagan. We wouldn't go elsewhere in future."
Stephen Connolly, General Manager, SSE Audio Group Limited


" David has undertaken different decorating and project work in my flat on four occassions over the last three years. He works in partnership making creative and sound practical suggestions about what would look well, enhance - or simplify areas for improvement. I have always found David to be skilled, reliable and courteous. In addition he is knowledgeable about linked trades, really helpful when other trades are needed to support a project; David project managed design/installation of a new kictchen into an apparantly impossible small space in my flat and it looks great. David's quotes are detailed and specific and I would use him without hesitation again."
Ruth, Willesden Green.
