Painters and Decorators in Wokingham
Hi. My name's Rob (or Robin - I'm fine with either!), and I'm a painter, decorator and handyman based in Emmbrook (near Wokingham) in Berkshire. I spent 20 years in an office job, before starting my own business in 2007. In the early years I took on all sorts of handyman work, from building sheds and patios to fitting whole new bathrooms. I soon learned however that the thing I enjoyed most - and was best at - was giving rooms a "makeover".
It gives me a huge buzz to give a room a new lease of life, whether it's just a fresh lick of paint or a complete transformation; after a few days work I can see the difference I have made, and the pleasure this can bring to my customers. So that's what I now specialise in.
That's not to say that all I do is painting and decorating. Quite often the "room makeover" will include some tiling or carpentry work (hanging doors, replacing skirting boards, boxing in pipes, laying laminate flooring), or putting up coving etc, which I'm more than happy to take on as part of the project.

Thank you Robin. Very, very pleased with the painting of the whole house, especially the stairs. Will definitely recommend you.

"I would highly recommend Mr Gofton to undertake any work, as he is honest, conscientious and hard working. The work he carried out for me was to a very high standard and I was very happy to have Mr Gofton working in my home while I was absent. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him."
Mrs H, Emmbrook
"Rob has undertaken a number of projects for us during the past few years. He has decorated our lounge, study, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, and most recently completely refurbished our utility room. Rob is a gem. Totally honest, reliable and transparent about his costs, which are very reasonable. He goes to great lengths to ensure that his customer is satisfied with his work. You will not find any better. The quality of his work is exemplary. Whenever we have decorating work to be done Rob is always our first port of call. It is rare nowadays to find somebody in whom you can have complete trust to be in your property when you are not there. Recommended unreservedly!!"
