Frequently asked questions
What experience do you have?
Top man, Rob Hollywood, has been working in painting and decorating and property maintenance for many years. He established RSJJ Painting & Decorating in 2007. Since then, we’ve worked in all kinds of environments from factories to medical centre, office blocks to private homes.
We might need a bit of light property maintenance doing as well as decorating. Can you handle that?
Absolutely! We’re no strangers to property maintenance. West Yorkshire social housing and flat complexes are typical of some of the environments for which we’ve been responsible. We’re more than capable of undertaking the odd bit of maintenance work alongside our painting and decorating.
How far do you travel?
We’re based in Hebden Bridge and most of our work is in West Yorkshire and Lancashire. Painting and decorating contracts do take us further afield now and then and we’re happy to travel for the right contract.
We’ve had bad experiences with decorators in the past. What makes you different?
Preparation. We prepare, we prime and only then do we paint or paper, using top quality materials. No flimsy lining papers or paints that don’t stand the test of time. We want our clients to still be recommending us two years down the line. And they are.
Redecorating our hotel is a big job. Can you handle it?
Yes. We’ll work out a schedule with you in advance, to minimise disruption to your guests, and if necessary we’ll bolster our team with tried and trusted associate decorators to deliver the job on time and to our usual high standards.
With all those ladders and painting materials, how do you prevent mishaps and accidents?
We’re very tidy workers. We also take health and safety very seriously. Before we begin, we do a thorough risk assessment so we can minimise the potential hazards to you, your customers and any other visitors you might have.
Our MD wants something eye catching in our reception. Can you do that?
Just watch us! Rob’s right hand man Sean is a paint effects Picasso. You could have a mural or an engaging trompe l’oeil effect. He can even turn plain MDF into marble or mahogany.
Will you decorate my living room?
First and foremost, we’re commercial decorators but now and then we enjoy doing the occasional domestic project.
The area we want painting and decorating is open to the general public and it’s important to us that we maintain a professional appearance at all times. You won’t let us down, will you?
No way. We’re clean and punctual – we even bring our own hoovers! – we are non-smokers and we dont sit around slurping tea. Except for a quick lunch break – which we can take elsewhere if you prefer – we’re on the job all day. And if it makes things easier for you, we can work nights when you’re closed to the public.
