About Paul Istrate

If the paint on your walls has started to peel and crack or you want to brighten up your space with charming colour, hiring a professional painter means no hassle and impressive results. I’m a skilled painter with over ten years of experience working on different properties across the UK and before that in other countries like Germany, Italy, Belgium, and Spain. I consider myself a true professional and enhance the appearance of homes by working with precision and offering my clients an excellent service. I listen carefully to all requirements, making a special note of any areas of concern. From light touch-ups to completely painting walls and ceilings to balustrades, I work with attention to detail and never rush through my job. I bring all the tools for smooth and flawless results and will make certain no splatter will fall on your floors and furniture. I thrive on making my customers happy as is evident with the positive reviews on my Bidvine profile. When you hire me, you have the peace of mind that I will show up on time, deliver high-quality painting services, and complete the job on schedule. My rates are very affordable and I do offer discounts based on the size and scope of the project. Whether you want me to paint all your bedrooms or you would like me to refresh the paint in your living room, I’m ready to help. Please get in touch to discuss your unique needs and to arrange a site visit for a quotation. I look forward to hearing from you and being of service.

Stephanie Z.'s review on Mar 11, 2021

Very pleased with the quality of the work! We just bought a property and hired Paul to paint the entire house; Paul fixed all the cracks, unevenness and hole in the wall (we had a huge hole in the kitchen wall which he patched up) and did an amazing paint job - the property looks so clean and new now. We then separately asked him to paint the radiators and wooden floor which he did a great job. Highly recommended!

Tonia S.'s review on Jun 05, 2020

Paul redecorated my entire flat in one day. He worked non stop to get it done. I had prepared a lot of sheets for the floor and furnitures expecting to gave paint everywhere to clean afterwards but Paul did not spill even a drop. Sockets, door frames and edges were painted around with precision.
