KJ Tait Engineers were looking for painting contractors to re-decorate their office in Hills Road, Cambridge. They invited us to quote for the work.
Our initial amount of work they wanted us to do exceeded their budget. However, the team loved our attitude and decided to cut out some unessential work and awarded the decorating job to us.
We first started with the exterior work. The front door’s handle was very inconveniently located too close to the architrave. Helen (the company secretary) asked us to put it in the middle of the door instead. Once this was done, the old paint on the door was sanded down with powerful Festool sanders, which made the surfaces ultra smooth and ready for painting.
The metal fence had a similar treatment. Ground floor masonry was first treated with anti-fungal solution and then painted with suitable masonry paint. We added specialist anti-fungal solution to the paint to ensure it resists mould and fungus.
The interior painting was very straight forward. The most important task for us was to carefully cover the furniture to ensure it doesn’t get covered with dust, let alone paint splashes.
The rest was easy – applying stain block to ensure the stains do not come through fresh paint, paint spraying ceilings, painting walls, sanding woodwork, filling cracks and gaps with caulk and painting the woodwork. The whole job was done over three weekends. This way the work of the office went on uninterrupted. Another decorating project done well within the agreed time frame, on budget and to the client’s full satisfaction.
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.
