    Mary Short

    exterior painting Jacob was always keen to keep me informed of where he was, what work he was doing that day and what work was outstanding. It’s nice to be kept up to date with the project, how far its got and what’s left. We had a number of days of rain but he was here doing what he could when he could. The lads that worked for Jacob were always polite and good to talk to. A number of my neighbours have commented on the work and enquired for quotes.

    Jacob and Jack arrived to time on Tuesday morning to strip and paint our kitchen white.
    They prepped and we left them to it as we needed to do other jobs in Barnstaple. We left Jacob and Jack keys if they needed to leave the property and they had use of kitchen and bathroom if needed. Perfectly trustworthy young men. We arrived home at 1425 hrs and the kitchen was finished. We thoroughly recommend Jacob Short Painters & Decorators – we will be delighted to have them back again in the future for further decoration. Great job, good price, reliable, professional and trustworthy. Thank you Jacob and Jack😊
