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.
So if you are looking for a professional painter and decorator in Bedfordshire please get in touch for a totally Free quotation. I am fully insured, polite, reliable and extremely trustworthy.

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.
George Coull has just finished redecorating my lounge and dining room. I found George’s details on Google and got him to come round and take a look at the work and supply me with a price, which I accepted. I am delighted with the work George has done for me. He helped me move furniture as I am not that able. He arrived on time everyday and left the rooms clean and tidy everyday. I would definitely use George Coull again in the future if I require any more decorating work carried out, and I would thoroughly recommend him to my friends and family and to any one looking for a top painter and decorator. Many thanks George for your hard work. Regards Trevor Peake

I found George’s details on google and contacted him for a free estimate for redecorating my hall, stairs and landing in Goldington, Bedford. George came round and we talked about what had to be done and then he sent me a written estimate at which I accepted. We agreed a start date and George arrived bang on time. I was out at work everyday so left George to it, every night I returned home George had cleared up and hoovered up which I was very impressed with. George is all finished now and I couldn’t be more happy with the job it is beautiful and fresh and clean. George is a very polite nice man, very punctual, extremely tidy, and a first class Painter and Decorator, already booked him in to come back in August to do our main bedroom.
Just want to say a massive thank you to George for all his hard work and for doing such a great job.
George was recommended to us by one of our neighbours who had recently had some decorating done by George. I have to say we are absolutely delighted with the work he has carried out so far. His attention to detail and pride in his work is second to none. Our daughter is delighted with her newly decorated bedroom and we can’t wait to see the rest of the house once it’s all completed. I genuinely wouldn’t hesitate in recommending George for anyone that is looking for a professional, reliable and trustworthy guy to carry out their decorating needs. Thanks again George.
George recently came and redecorated our master bedroom, painting and wallpapering. George was always on time, extremely polite, very tidy worker, a perfectionist I would say, the bedroom end result was wonderful and we are over the moon with it. I cant recommend highly enough George Coull Painting and Decorating, we certainly will use him again and recommend George to friends and family
George painted our hall, stairs and landing – not an easy job! He is a good, tidy worker and carefully prepared the surfaces before applying paint. We found him to be very pleasant and anxious to ensure that he did a good job. He left everything very neat and tidy on completion and stuck to his agreed schedule. We will employ him again when more decorating needs to be done.
George spent this week with us painting our living room, kitchen and utility, what an amazing job, we are really pleased with the end result such a perfect finish. His attention to detail is second to none, very happy to leave him in the house to get on with the job. George is such a clean worker, you wouldn’t even know he had been there if it wasn’t for the transformational look of the rooms when he had finished. We will be getting George back in the summer to do our hallway, stairs, landing as well as my office and snug.
George has just finished redecorating my hall stairs and landing in Goldington, Bedford. I work everyday, so I left George to get on with things. He was on time everyday so I could get off to work and when I returned home every night the stairs was spotless. I just want to say a big thank you to George for doing such a wonderful job and I would highly recommend George to anyone looking for a top painter and decorator. All the best Alistair
George has just finished painting and decorating our master bedroom and has done such a fantastic job. I got Georges details from a friend. George came round and gave me a price for the bedroom which I accepted. We arranged a start date. From start to finish of the job George thoroughly sheeted up and cleaned up every night before he left. The bedroom looked quite tired before George started but when he had finished we were totally blown away it now looks beautiful. I cannot praise and rate George enough and I will be using him for all my future painting work. Many thanks for your very hard work George.
