I can highly recommend Anglia Decor. Steve looked at our difficult industrial floor refurb job. He gave great advice on the selection of products and colours. When it came to the actual work, Steve was involved in the preparation and coating. Always with a smile, calmly dealing with issues and the finer details of the work. Good value as well. One of the best experiences I've had in dealing with contractors.

Called Steve at Anglia Decor for a dilapidations exterior metal cladding quote, that needed doing relatively quickly. Steve was amazing, professional and so knowledgably. He quickly priced the job from Google maps and sent a man to start within days! This is 5 star customer service and the price was excellent. The job was completed this week and is excellent. Thank you Steve, Warren and the team. Great work!

Steve gave good advice and always answered his phone and responded to emails. He prepared my garage floor and coated it with an epoxy resin product. It was an overall good experience and the work conducted in a professional and caring manner.
