“Last year Gary Lancaster was suggested by our insurance company to carry out repair work following heavy rain which led to serious damage to the surface of a wall in our house. As the technique used on the wall involved a french wash, it required some experience and skill. I am pleased to say that Gary did an extremely professional job, within the time frame promised. The quality of the work was very important to us as the house dates from the 1880s and is of some historic interest. Since then we have also contracted Gary to do more work, involving the repair and painting of window frames and both interior and exterior walls. In all cases the work has been done in a professional way, with careful attention to detail, minimal fuss and on time. My wife and I are pleased to recommend Gary as a highly skilled painter. We will certainly use his services again and we recommend him to you in the strongest possible terms.” See Portfolio.
