“I found Michael Ware by accident. I was in a bit of a pickle and needed someone quickly. I phoned Michael and he came round to my house and fixed my problem quickly and efficiently. I was very impressed by the way he took care in my home. I have never seen a room so well covered up before the job began. This made me go back to Michael when I needed to have my lounge painted. I only wanted 3 walls to be done but this was no problem to Michael. He gave me a very fair price and as I was unsure about paints he advised me. I found him to be very knowledgeable and helpful. We decided on a paint and because the 3 walls were painted so thoroughly and so well, I asked him to carry on up my stairs and landing. My husband and I are delighted with the finished work. We found Michael to be a charming young man, who is considerate and who is very good with pensioners and dogs. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I can't wait to have him paint my next room.”

- Mrs F, Cottingham
