Rob Murphy, Construction Director | Watts & Hughes Construction
Watts & Hughes Construction have worked with Wayne Bowden Painters for over 30 years. During this time they have been our preferred painting contractors particular when undertaking high quality projects, including high priced residential, retail, industrial, commercial and government type projects. Wayne Bowden Painters have always been a very professional subcontractor, completing their work to an extremely high standard. They have always resourced their projects to ensure we meet our completion dates and if necessary work extended hours with no hesitation. They are always reliable and will return to rectify any defective work including projects completed some time ago. We would recommend Wayne Bowden Painters for any future painting projects particularly if a high quality finish is required. Please don’t hesitate to contact the writer if a verbal reference is required.
We contacted Will at Wayne Bowden Painters to come and give a quote for a complete re-paint of a very tired run down 1940’s bungalow. Right from the start of the process it was clear this was a seriously well run company, Will was incredibly flexible and accommodating, every phone call and text was answered straight away, all appointments were kept and on time, the quote was fast and detailed and nothing was ever a problem. Pricing was great and WBP were super adaptable with timings and working around a young family to ensure minimum disruption. WBP ended up taking the job on and also managing the other trades that were in and out of the house, to ensure all trades could work in with each other and most importantly the job was completed on time. The painters were all really respectful polite professional people who were very easy to deal with. The painting was a super high standard, to come back to a full house complete re-paint and not have any problems is incredibly rare. On top of that this house had wallpapers hung also and this was also done beautifully with huge attention to detail. I can’t recommend WBP highly enough and will use them for all my painting jobs from here on in‘.

‘Through our experience in working with WBP we have no hesitation in recommending Will and his team for any painting job big or small. They have a great team of professionals that you can rely on to do a quality job everytime. The communication and friendly attitude is a strength of WBP and we will continue to use them as we consider this is paramount to a great project and finish. Create + Construct Ltd’.
“Over our 30-year history, painting has been one of the most difficult trades to procure not only top quality and consistent workmanship but also reliable communication. It is a trade that is often overlooked in terms of the importance of getting a home looking 100% – bad painting can destroy the hard work gone before. We have been using WBP for the last few years and it has been a breath of fresh air. Not only do they deliver on quality every time; they communicate effectively and have a useful knowledge of specialist stains, sealers, spray finishes, plaster effects, etc. Above all, their painting staff are all polite and a pleasure to have on our sites”
Robin Reid | Cedar Town House
We contacted Wayne Bowden Painters Ltd in October 2017 to obtain a quotation for the application of a maintenance coat of wood oil on our Cedar Town House (one of an enclave of three). Our point of contact was Will Bowden who promptly provided the quotation and detailed thoroughly what processes would be followed. As there was a specified time frame for us to have the work completed, Will was happy to assist in ensuring the job was started at a time which would suit in with our plans. The Painters and the materials arrived on site as detailed. It was great to have a team of guys who really cared about what they were doing. They were polite, cheerful, unobtrusive and meticulous in what they did. At the end of each day the site was left clean and tidy and even during the day they would ensure we were not being inconvenienced with the placement of scaffolding and other quipment that was required for the job. Regularly Mike the Foreman for Will would drop by to ensure everything was going to plan. It was reassuring to see this standard of attention to detail. The job was completed promptly and we are very happy with the result. We have asked WBP to provide us with a maintenance programme for the future as we want to continue our relationship with them. Although this reference only relates to our property, WBP have completed the same work for our two neighbours as all property owners were wanting the same high standards.
