About Ian Goodley Painting and Decorating
I have been in the trade for over 20 years and I am City and Guilds qualified and experienced in all aspects of painting and decorating. Customer references are available and most of my work does indeed come from recommendations from previous happy customers. I do not ask for payment until a job is completed to the total satisfaction of the customer and I can guarantee that the work will be finished to the highest standard using quality materials and with the work area left in a clean and tidy condition.

Customer reviews for this trader
Ian decorated our hall, stairs and landing. All work was carried out to a very high standard and we are delighted with it. Ian was punctual, tidy and professional. We have booked him again for more work in April. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ian.
We have used Ian for a number of jobs over several years now. We keep returning to Ian as we have found him to be punctual, hard working, organised and tidy. He has always been helpful and tried to fit jobs in quickly if needed eg for Christmas. He is a very skilled decorator who is willing to listen to your ideas whilst providing advice about them. We had previously had a number of decorating firms and none have come close to his standard of preparation and attention to detail. Ian is pleasant, friendly and focused and no matter how big the job is he always realises that the home must continue around him. We would recommend Ian without reservation and are already thinking about our next decorating venture.
Excellent professional and friendly service and workmanship. Clean and tidy work, planned job efficiently and arrived as planned and completed in time frame estimated. We have already recommended to others and would definitely use for future decorating needed.
Ian was very friendly, courteous, tidy and professional. I would highly recommend. A true professional.
Ian was recommended to us by our daughter. He was very helpful with his suggestions for decorating our lounge. He was very tidy, punctual and friendly. We would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
Ian was recommended to us and we are delighted with the decorating he has done for us. He is professional, friendly and very polite - and just gets on with the job! We have already asked him to do further work for us in the near future and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.
We chose Ian to wallpaper our stairs, following strong recommendations. He arrived at the agreed time and brought protective sheets for the stairs. He helped me to decide exactly which walls to paper and advised on a better approach than originally planned. He is very professional, very tidy and survived my coffee making efforts! We are very pleased with the job and can only highly recommend him to others. I only wish he wasn't already so booked up as we will definitely need his help again. Thank you Ian.
Ian has decorated our stairs and lounge and has done an excellent job, the work is to a very high standard. The staircase was wallpapered and the lounge painted and we are extremely satisfied with both jobs. Ian and his assistant Mark went above and beyond by reattaching the bannister on the staircase and moving the furniture back in the lounge for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Ian to others, we used him after he did decorating for my sister who was also very pleased with his work. A clean and tidy worker, nothing else you could ask for in a tradesperson.
Ian is very professional, polite and considerate. He did an excellent job for us and nothing was too much trouble for him. He made the whole process very straightforward and we had full confidence in him from the very start. Ian explained what order he was going to do things in each morning but accommodated our needs as well. We definitely recommend Ian and will certainly contact him next time we need a painter and decorator.
I originally contacted Ian through Trusted Trader because a previous decorator had let me down. Ian came out and looked at the job, then completed it. I then contacted him to decorate my lounge and he's made an absolutely brilliant job of it. The wallpaper I had chosen was expensive and a bit of a nightmare to match up, plus I had some murals and painting. He completed everything expertly. Ian is easy to get on with, cracks on with the job and clears up when he's done. I thought his price was reasonable. I would definitely recommend Ian.
Ian and his partner was professional and done a great job for us. He made sure everything was tidy and hoover at the end of job. Very pleased with overall.
Wallpaper lined out my living room and bedroom emulsion and gloss. Very clean and tidy and a really great job Oh and he let the dogs out into the garden too for me. Definitely would recommend and will use him again in future.
Ian has just finished a fantastic job painting our hall, stairs and landing plus a bit that needed painting in the kitchen which he kindly did too! Lovely chap, hard worker who just got on. Polite and friendly _" would recommend without hesitation. Great price too!!
We were on holiday whilst Ian decorated our downstairs and hall area. We had no qualms leaving Ian in the house alone. He is very polite, understanding and helpful in choosing our colour scheme. During this time he was responsible for the security of the property and we felt at ease and confident in his ability. On return we were very pleased with his workmanship and the house was left very clean and tidy. Ian is returning in May to complete further work for us.
I was looking forward to having Ian spruce up our entire house, but after over a week of trying to get a date for Ian to start the first room and not even getting a reply I cancelled the work. I felt completely Ignored and wont use a tradesman who has such an unprofessional disregard for customers. TRADER REPLY: I am very sorry to read this. I did indeed quote for decorating a bedroom and a bathroom at the property earlier this year,but was unfortunately taken ill and was not able to immediately reply to a text message received. After getting a second text informing me that I was no longer required to do the work I presumed that this was the end of the matter.I pride myself on the many good reviews I have and can only apologise again for this misunderstanding.
Ian decorated my daughters bedroom. We are delighted with the results, Ian did a great job painting 3 walls and wallpapering the other one. He charged a fair price and he left the site clean and tidy too. We would have no hesitation in recommending him, we will definitely be using him again.
This was the second time we have had Ian decorate our house.

We actually posted a card to Trusted Trader rating Ian but note that our comments have not been noted on the Trusted Trader website. Ian carried out the redecoration of our lounge incorporating a feature wall which totally transformed the room. Ian's attention to detail is excellent, his workmanship is excellent, he finished the job well within the timescale quoted and always cleaned up before he left the job each evening. Would definitely recommend Ian.
