Consistent quality

Over the last few years, Tim has done a number of decorating jobs for me. I have found him to be honest, reliable and practical. The quality of the work has always been excellent and when unexpected issues have arisen, they’ve always been quickly and effectively sorted out. I have not hesitation in recommending him.

Praise from Afar

We live in the US and hired Tim and Lisa to paint our house in Cornwall inside and out. We were nervous, given we were so far away, but the experience was amazing. Tim and Lisa understood what we wanted, came back with suggestions, asked for clarification when necessary. They just completely put us at our ease and were fantastic to work with. Extremely hard working and professional and they would be our first choice for any future jobs.

Robin & Cathy - 02/01/2023

Hard work & commitment

“Thank you so much, Tim and Lisa For doing such a great job! on our new build. Despite the difficulties of working around all the other trades as our completion deadline loomed, your patience and co-operation meant we were able to move into a finished house. Thank you; I realise how hard it was but your hard work & commitment were really appreciated.”

Amazing Transformation!

Tim and Lisa have worked tirelessly decorating the whole of my late father’s house inside, with amazing results. They were dedicated, professional and kept me informed at all times as I wasn’t able to be there. And as for the results, the house looks amazing, thank you so much Tim and Lisa! I would have no hesitation in highly recommending them.

Transformed my Flat and Courtyard

Testimonial Tim and Lisa have been absolutely wonderful to work with! They painted the interior of my flat after significant repairs were completed, and also painted the courtyard walls and the exterior windows and doors. Tim took time to listen and give suggestions, making sure he understood what I wanted to achieve. He gave me suggestions for saving money on the job, and the cost was very reasonable for the amount of work and detail involved. The quality of Tim and Lisa's work is outstanding - I would not hesitate to recommend them. Thanks to the challenges of travel and the pandemic I was out of the country much of the time, and they kept me updated and answered my questions quickly and thoroughly. Their work made my flat a beautiful home.

Hard Working and Professional!

Originally recommended to me by my next-door neighbour, Tim and Lisa did a cracking job restoring and painting the outside of my Edwardian semi. Tim is a fount of all decorating knowledge, who went beyond the call of duty to restore window frames on the top floor of the house, and in the long run saved me money! Many thanks for your hard work and professionalism. Mugs of Yorkshire Tea await your next visit!

Glen, Penzance - 18/10/2022

top-quality job, at a fair price!!

We had a very professional, reliable and skilled exterior decorating service from Tim and Lisa. A top-quality job, at a fair price. My wife and I can highly recommend their work.

Richard Plank - 21/09/2022

Very knowledgeable, very experience

If there is anything Tim & Lisa don't know about painting and decorating - well, I would be surprised. What's more, they put their knowledge into practice and back it up with years of experience. Thank you for my exterior work, it looks brilliant and I feel confident it will last.

Sally Penzance - 21/07/2022

External Painting Of House

Tim quoted for repainting our white - rendered coastal property. Working with his daughter Lisa, Tim was very thorough in preparing for the work through jet washing the walls with a specialist cleaner, he applied 2 coats of a very high quality paint and treated rust where necessary. Both were a pleasure to work with and we will definitely use them again in the future.

Amanda & Ray - 28/07/2022

Great job!

Thank you to Tim and Lisa. A fantastic job on the outside of our very neglected house.

Sally Swift - 26/04/2022

DIANE GRANT - 07/05/2022

Another satisfied customer

Tim has returned to us a second time and done an excellent job in spite of the challenge of a steep, narrow staircase and the many years of neglect! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Joanna Craven - 24/03/2022

Brilliant result!

Thank you both for the wonderful job you've done in our home, painting and wallpapering! Looks amazing! We love it! Highly recommend!

Excellent service from Start to Finish!

Marion BAILEY - 02/02/2021

Very much in demand!

We used TM Decorating a family run Penzance Business. They were excellent but they are very much in demand so if you need someone quickly they may not be able to accommodate you !

Leezah C. - 14/01/2022

Excellent Work

We are delighted with the standard of Tim and Lisa's decorating, and it was a pleasure having them in our home. We hope to have them back again when they can fit us in!

Don & Jo Craven - 24/11/2020

Usual Standard

Three ceilings plus a couple of minor add-on jobs carried out in record time. Have used the firm before & were happy to be able to do so again. Cannot find fault with any aspect of their work

mr Ian Perry - 15/11/2020

Excellent result

Delighted to have Tim again to complete some interior decorating. We had a problem with interior cracks around coving and on the wall, all have now vanished and the result is perfect. Thank you to Tim for another fantastic job. Would recommend without hesitation.

Dr Cuff - 15/11/2020

Efficient, professional and totally straightforward

We called Tim in to do an short-notice redecoration of a tall three bed holiday let. He did the job on time and bang on budget - work was done to a high standard; no mean feat given the tight corners and five flights of stairs. Tim was professional, patient, and very easy to communicate with, he even helped coordinate other works (electrics) going on in the house. We will certainly use TM decorating again.

Ed Jones - 23/09/2020

Beautiful work and great service

We had our house redecorated from top to bottom and are delighted with the results. Reasonable pricing and excellent service were also a bonus! Highly recommended.

Rachel Sigrist - 14/08/2020

Transforming our home

what a pleasure it was to employ TM Decorating to paint our new 4 bedroom home interior Tim works very hard and to a very high standard , fast clean,friendly, with plenty of advice on colour schemes a professional finish is shown by the comments from friends and family, without doubt Tim goes the extra mile many thanks for Transforming our outdated decro!

Simon & Jill - 19/07/2020

Brilliant job! Tim for painting and decorating every time!

Tim painted the inside of the 2 bedroom house I was moving in to at very short notice - the complete works - walls, ceilings, skirting boards, doors, stairs and banisters.. Tim managed to juggle his other jobs to fit in with my moving in date. Much appreciated - thank you Tim!. Professional, quick, efficient, great tidy upper and cheerful throughout! Works very hard. As I said to Tim, anyone who has been round since remarks on the quality of the paintwork and asks if I did it myself. I'd love to say yes, but apart from not being true, I couldn't have done the job even half as well myself. Brilliant job! Great value! Highly recommend!

Marion - 16/06/2020

Satisfied Customers!

Tim and Lisa were reliable, helpful, nice to have around and did a great job. Thank you!

Tom & Maya - 06/01/2020

Quality, Price, Service and a pleasure to have in your home

Tim and Lisa have just finished decorating throughout our house and some external work. Cannot fault them on any front. It is the first time in our lives that we haven't done our own decorating and seeing the difference that Tim and Lisa make, shows what these two professional, accomplished tradespeople can do compared to the amateur. Never going to DIY the decorating again, just call the A Team of Tim and Lisa; it's worth every penny! Thanks to both of you for making our lovely home look even lovelier! Come back and see us anytime

Terry & Jill - 29/08/2019

A first class quality team!

External paint windows, door and garden wall completed under challenging weather conditions. Tim works extremely hard and his work is of a very high standard. He is helpful, cheerful and eliminates much of the stress that often accompanies such projects. I can highly recommend Tim and his daughter Lisa to you and assure you that you will be in safe hands

WendyK-52 - 31/05/2019


Really pleased! Tim and Lisa were a joy to have working in my home. They worked tirelessly decorating the interior of my house and went the extra mile to ensure that I was one happy customer. I would definitely employ them again.

Perfect! I would recommend using T M Decorating. Aside from the great workmanship, Tim was prompt and tidy too. He did a professional job on our windows which are now better than they were when the house was new!

TM Rules OK!

Very competative price from Tim that he kept to, excellent quality workmanship and flexible approach in dealing with scaffolding that was erected late.

JohnB-2652 - 21/01/2019

Great rates for a reliable team.

Tim and Lisa painted the outside of our 4 storey house. They were reliable, conscientious and with very high standards of work. Their excellent communication made the job go very smoothly. We recommend Tim and Lisa and hope to book them to do more work on our Guest house next year. (We'll get a new selection of biscuits in for coffee Tim!!!)

MaryT-103 - 21/01/2019


Lisa & Tim recently decorated several rooms at our property. The standard of work is excellent, start date to commence work as fulfilled. Tim worked with me regarding colour schemes - nothing was too much trouble. Clearly the customer comes first! High recommended. Thank you Lisa & Tim

I was very pleased with Tim and daughter! Very good quality work and I will use them again. Tim was also very helpful with his knowledge and had good suggestions which were very welcome. they completed the work sooner than expected. I’m very satisfied

MichG-2 - 01/10/2018

Highly recommended: a reliable, efficient and friendly company.

Tim and Lisa have done an excellent job repainting the exterior woodwork on our house. Tim is impressive at overcoming problems and found the most economical and efficient way of dealing with the difficulties that a three story house presents. He gave us good advice when he came to assess the house for his estimate and did everything he promised and more. He is well organised and gets things done on time. Both Tim and Lisa are very friendly and considerate and weare pleased to recommend them.

MarilynandC - 22/09/2018

A great paint job with the personal touch

Having had two or three painters visit us to quote, we chose Tim and Lisa to paint the outside of our house and they did a great job. We even went away for a few days and left them the keys to finish off. Talking about a thorough and personal service, they even spent time to free up a door with a sticking lock which we hadn’t had open for two years. We we’re delighted with the finished result on our return, and will certainly ask them to do further work. There are a lot of painters around but TM Decorating were a great find

GaryJ-158 - 11/09/2018

Great Service, helpful, reliable, professional

I am so glad to have found Tim Morrow after some previous disappointments and let-downs over the years. Tim promptly came round to assess the painting work required to the external wood work on my property and explained everything to me in detail, followed soon after by a detailed written and agreeable quote. Work began exactly on the date agreed and was undertaken in a very professional and friendly manner by both Tim and Lisa and Tim fitted in some remedial work too. I found Tim to be extremely professional, reliable and always friendly and helpful. I am really pleased with the finished work and would have no hesitation in recommending TM Decorating

MonicaH-6 - 17/08/2018


JELD-WEN's response to an issue with our factory finished wooden windows was to appoint TM & Daughter Decorating, to carry out necessary remedial work. Thank you to them both, the work was carried out professionally without any fuss. Have been building all my working life and know when a job has been done well. P.Roberts

PatrickR-46 - Window refurbishment. - 14/08/2018


Between Monday 2nd July and Friday the 8th, Tim Morrow, with assistance from his daughter, worked on decorating the outside of my house. It was extremely hot during those days, but Tim and Lisa worked on regardless, stopping only for the occasional drink, and a short break for lunch. Tim is a perfectionist and takes much pride in his work, and Lisa is a great asset. I am so pleased with what they have achieved, and can recommend their dedication and work shown to the job, this shows in the finished results. Thank you T and Co ‘PROPER JOB

AnneW-183 - Re Pedn-an-Laaz decorating - 31/07/2018

Very gratifying result

Tim and Lisa did an excellent job decorating the outside of our cottage. They were quick and efficient and also very obliging. Tim found time to paint the trellis outside the front door and also the side gate which contributed greatly to the overall finish. We are very pleased with the result and would have no hesitation in recommending them

AntonyW-33 - Ludgvan Cottage Decoration - 12/06/2018

Super Job

Very thorough. Best quality paint. Excellent workmanship. Completed on time despite some small problems

AnthonyS-194 - 19/05/2018

Great job at Sennen Cove

TM Decorating did an excellent job at our house in Sennen Cove. Having provided the best value quote, we had good communication about the timing of the job and frequent progress reports as it unfolded. Extra work was undertaken at our request at a very reasonable cost. We are happy to recommend TM Decorating and would definitely use Tim & Lisa again when the need arises.

WhiteLight77-4 - 23/04/2018


Superb - 10/10 What more can I say - Tim was faultless. I was trying to get a property decorated from a distance and he could not have been more helpful. He provided ideas and went way above what was expected of him mending little bits and pieces he came across as the job was underway. He kept me fully updated and provided photographs of the finished work. The local estate agent who put the property on the market emailed to say what a great job he had made. If anyone is looking for a decorator, look no further, you won't be disappointed. His rates were excellent too.

BLUETABLE35 - 07/02/2018

No excellent job

Friendly and efficient work at a very good price. Tim and Lisa did an excellent painting job.They have transformed our lounge, staircase and fireplace and the quality of their work is first class. The work was completed in the time and at the price quoted

FuchsiaCarpet13 - 18/12/2017


Professional, hardworking and reliable. Job well done in a friendly & cheerful manner - what more can you ask! A good price too

MagentaWindow55 - 16/12/2017

Brilliant JOB!

Tim started on the exact day that had been arranged and was very professional throughout the job. He was super kind and took time to sort out my windows which did need some extra preparation work. The house looks fantastic and I'm over the moon with the paint job Tim has done. I would highly recommend TM decorating. Thank you.

AnnaH-120 - 02/11/2017

Impressive Professional Standards!

TM Decorating provided good value with a responsive and quick service, while maintaining an impressive professional standard. Would most recommend - I have asked for a further quote from Tim.

MrsmH-1 - 25/10/2017


Would we use this father and daughter decorating business again? YES, we would. They not only went the extra mile to ensure our deadline was met but they were cheerful, their work was extremely good and we have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for an experienced, professional decorating service.

Mrs Mash - 26/09/2017

Did exactly as promised and more

A neighbour recommended Tim and he has been amazing: He turned up when promised, did a really good job, went out of his way to solve all problems, cleared my gutters and even removed a redundant TV aerial. His charges are extremely reasonable. I would not hesitate to recommend him

DymphnaH - 01/09/2017

FAST and Efficient!

Tim and Lisa did a fantastic job painting the outside of our house. They are fast and efficient, and we would highly recommend them.

BerniceP-3 - 14/08/2017


This company came by recommendation and they did not disappoint, they provided a Method Statement before work commenced, and it was rigidly stuck too. The work was carried out to my three-story home and I am extremely pleased with the results, so I would have no problem in using them again and recommending them to others

RichardM-480 - 12/08/2017


I found Tim quite by accident as I don't live in the area, but he has been so helpful, finding me other trades people receiving deliveries, hanging curtains as well as decorating our 2-bed flat top to bottom - including really high ceilings! He couldn't do enough for me and I would certainly recommend him to others

JennyC-117 04 - 02/07/2017

GREAT SERVICE, (what a refreshing change)

We used Tim and Lisa for some external decorating and general maintenance jobs. Their quote was prompt and accurate, they arrived when they said they would, they did the work to a very high standard, they created no mess and they kept us up-to-date on progress. What a refreshing change! Would recommend them

LesleyPa - 08/06/2017

Can highly recommend !

Very pleased with the work done, can highly recommend Tim

JudithR-26 - 28/02/2017


We completed on our holiday home just before Christmas which needed decorating throughout. I contacted Tim when I saw the great reviews on YELL, we met up and he agreed to fit us in by shifting a few jobs around. I can't recommend him highly enough. He is totally trustworthy (he now has a key!), workmanship is excellent, he managed to sort out and manage a few other tradesmen for us, and he really cares about what he does. Many thanks

JanetT-23 - 27/02/2017


Tim recently came and painted outside of the house and we were very pleased with the job he did. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone and would use him again as very friendly, trustworthy and reliable

LizS-40 - 08/01/2017


When I called, Tim came round and viewed the job quickly, he was extremely helpful and informative and, despite being busy, managed to fit the job in which helped me out of a tight spot. Tim was extremely flexible, pleasant to work with and he did an excellent job. If only there were more like him. I couldn't be more pleased and have no hesitation in recommending this company.

AnneM-85 - 03/01/2017

DavidS-483 - 09/09/2016


We recently employed Tim to decorate the outside of our office in Morrab Road and are very pleased with the result. The work has been done to a very high standard, with great attention given to all the preparation work. Tim was punctual, always polite, tidy and professional and his rates are extremely competitive. We would not hesitate to have him back to do further work for us.

KathleenR-4 - 22/06/2016


Very tidy and professional. Completed the job to good standard in time and on budget

WilliamL-20 - 21/06/2016


Recently Tim came to my house and done some work for me. I was surprised at how cheap all of the work cost considering he done my living room, dining room, and downstairs hall way all for such a cheap rate! all wall paper. Was really impressed at how clean and tidy he was always, and fully set up with all the correct equipment needed to do the job. He always re-assured me and asked lots of questions to ensure the work he was doing was exactly how i wanted it done, then just fully concentrated on it. Cannot see any of the creases or joins in the wall paper! so impressed and the place is looking lovely, would recommend him for great work at amazing rates! very friendly and a lot of experience by the looks of it. :)
