Safety is our first and most important policy. The safety of our customer’s, our contractor’s and the general public is always at the top of the list on every project we undertake. We always carry out a risk assessment on every project and all of our safety procedures are monitored by the HSE.


Reliability is paramount with our customer’s. We know people have busy lives and tight schedules and may need to book time off work to tie in with their decorating project. It is imperative that we do not start or deliver projects late or fail to deliver on time. We guarantee to always deliver on schedule.


We understand that one of the biggest concerns customer’s have is that work is carried out with integrity and professionalism. We always practice in accordance with construction regulations, use the safest materials and install them to the highest professional standard.


Just had all my external windows, doors, fascias and soffit’s done and i’m delighted with the finish. Highly recommended company.

Delighted with my lounge and sitting room that Dec to Spec have done for me. Great on finish, price and timing. Five stars!

I am leaving this review because I am over the moon with the professional job I have had done at my salon. It looks amazing. Their attention to detail is superb. If you are looking for a decorator, look no further than Dec to Spec.

I have used Dec to Spec three times now and they never let me down. Marvelous finish and they always tidy up after themselves. Prices are very reasonable and I always receive a friendly service. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys.

Came on time. Price stayed the same and the work was completed within the given time frame. Friendly, tidy and great workmanship. Would recommend without hesitation.

Just had our full house done. Me and my husband are really impressed with the work. Came recommended by a neighbour and really pleased we went with them. 10/10!
