Painting and Decorating Services in Bedford
Hello I am George Coull a professional painter and decorator in Bedford. I have been in the painting and decorating trade for over 34 years now. I cover all aspects of interior and exterior painting and decorating including wallpapering.
How I got into the painting and decorating trade is all down to my dad, he had his own painting and decorating company, so from the age of 10 every school holiday I would go to work with him, to start it was just sweeping up or popping down to the local shop to get a newspaper, every year that passed by I was allowed to do different things a bit of filling or rubbing down, then at the age of 15 my dad passed me a dusting brush, paint brush and a kettle of paint and said you can go into that room and dust all the bare woodwork down and give it all a coat of wood primer, the smile on my face I can still remember it now, being trusted to do some painting and when I had finished to hear my dad say “you have done a cracking job there son” that made my day and I knew then that I wanted to be a painter and decorator.
I finished upper school and passed all my exams, my brothers went into the banking sector in London and my mum said to me are you sure you want to follow in your dads footsteps and the simple answer was yes.
My dad had recently retired but helped me no end by putting me in touch with all of his old contacts which led me into obtaining my own work, I attended college once a week and the rest of the week I would be doing my own painting and decorating work. As the years went on I finished at college and I was becoming more established and my name was being recognised around Bedford.
Now 34 years on since I started painting and decorating lots of things have changed all for the better. Decorators tools are all high quality and last, there are so many different paint manufacturers to choose from, oil based paints are slowly being phased out and replaced with water based paints which is obviously good for the environment. I would say the biggest and best change I have made is investing in dust free sanding technology where all the dust goes through a hose into an extractor unit. Gone are the days of sanding down by hand and dust floating around in the air and breathing in who knows what and no more hoovering at the end of each day. I offer dustless sanding to all of my customers.
Some things still remain the same as the day I first started as a painter and decorator, sheets down and clean white overalls on and always leave a job as tidy as the day you started it.
I am very proud of what I have achieved over the years, the client base I have built, the amount of recommendations I receive. Please read all my genuine 5 star reviews on Google from some of my very satisfied customers.

George carried out some painting and decorating for me including wallpapering. I was absolutely overjoyed with the work he has done for me. I left him in my house daily while I was at work and apart from the smell and look of newly painted or papered walls etc you would not know anyone had been there. He left the house as he found it. He is such a great person to trust in your home and to do a professional brilliant job. He leaves no mess and is also very considerate. He lets you know what he has done and what he will do next. He is open, honest, trustworthy, very sincere and helpful. I will definitely retain his details for future work I may need. I would not hesitate in recommending him to all my friends and family. Top job from a top professional My hallway and stairs are transformed. I could not be happier. Kathy Perrett from Bedford.
George Coull has recently redecorated my very tired and dated hall, stairs and landing. I had varnished spindles and handrails and wanted them painted white. George did so much preparation, filling, sanding down the stairs and painting the varnished areas with a special primer. I was out at work each day and left George to get on with things, he was always on time and when I came home the stairs had been all hoovered. The job is now finished and I couldnt be more happy with it, the stairs looks so bright and airy now. I really just wanted to thank George for all of his hard work and I will be in touch again when I require more painting work doing. I would definitely recommend George Coull to friends and family. Many thanks M.Bernard.
I found George’s details on Yell.com and contacted him to come round and give me a estimate to redecorate my 2 main bedrooms.
The work is all finished now and I thought I would leave a review to say how extremely happy I am with the work that has be done.
George obviously is a very experienced decorator, but he is an extremely tidy, polite, helpful worker too.
I would definitely recommend George Coull to anyone looking for a first class painter and decorator.
I have already booked him in for the summer to paint the outside of my house.
