Exterior window refurbishment and re-decoration in Great Chishill, South of Cambridgeshire
Our telephone number was passed on to Andrea and Alan by their friends. They loved our work and thought Andrea should ask us for a quote, which she did. Andrea also asked to see our previous work. We provided her with contact details of several clients who kindly agreed to meet Andrea and Alan to show them our past projects. Andrea chose to meet Kate and Andrew whose house was of the same period as their own, therefore the craftsmanship required would be of the same standard. Having seen the work and received the positive feedback from Andrew and Kate, Andrea hired us to redecorate the exterior of her house and refurbish the windows which needed some TLC.
The exterior woodwork was decayed and needed repairs. Alex shaved off a layer of rotten wood from the windows and repaired them with Accoya. Being an engineered wood, Accoya is more resistant to elements than any hardwood. Together with Window Care epoxy wood filler it will keep the windows protected for many years to come.
One of the soffit boards was badly rotten. Alex cut off the rotten end of it and replaced it with a new one. By replacing only the rotten area of the soffit board, we saved the clients’ money on the unnecessary extra labour and materials. We use this principle in everything we do – our work is always cost-effective for clients. Repairs are only carried out if they cost less than replacements.
When preparing to paint the masonry, we carefully detached the climbing plants from the walls and made sure they did not get damaged during the work. Once the paint was dry, all trellis and the plants were skilfully returned to their places. The house looked great again.
We have used Matt and his team on a number of occasions.
The standard of work is excellent and offers value for money.
He has a superb eye for detail and does not settle for second best.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Don't use gloss use Matt!
Excellent communication, service and professionalism. We spoke with Chameleon to restore some rotting wood french doors and wooden windows, as well as redecorate. Email discussions with Victoria to arrange the initial quote were answered quickly and in a friendly way. Alex and his team of decorators were excellent - they took 2 and a half days instead of 5, and worked extremely hard, leaving the windows and doors looking great. We'd use them again without hesitation and would thoroughly recommend them.
Alex and his team are superb. We have used them before, and always been impressed - as we were this time - by their work ethic, their expertise and knowledge, the quality of their work, and their efficiency. I recommend them very highly indeed.
We were incredibly impressed with Chameleon Decorators' workforce. They were punctual, worked extremely hard and were very polite and considerate. The project itself turned our tired, and frankly very dilapidated, windows into something once again in keeping with our 17th century cottage. We are delighted with the entire process and intend to use Chameleon again in the very near future.
Chameleon were so efficient - the job was completed within a week of our first contact. They worked so carefully, with great attention to detail and no mess. Communication was also good. We were very pleased with the internal (bathroom) and external (doors) work. I will recommend them to my friends.
