The re-decoration of our Abingdon branch had to fulfil all of our criteria – it has to be managed closely, it had to be on time and it had to be of the highest quality, ABK worked to our fixed time schedule and guided us through the decision making process, their sound advice was invaluable.

John Stevens, Operations Manager, 3663 Food Service

I am the Lead Facilities Coordinator at United Biscuits Head Office and I have been working with ABK since 2005 when we approached them to carry out some painting and decorating at our head office. Since then ABK have built us a Patio, smoking shelter, replaced flooring, the list is endless. They have always provided us with an excellent service. My experience of working with ABK comes highly recommended, they are flexible, friendly and very informative and their decorating has never disappointed. They are commitment to delivering a high customer service, this is filtered down to their workforce. I can confidently recommend ABK as a solid and reliable supplier and experts in their field.

United Biscuits, Hayes

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank ABK for their efforts in achieving the re-decoration in our dispatch area. This work was undertaken at very short notice and completed to ABK’s usual high standards. Well done!

Plumbing and Bathroom Distribution Unit, Oxford

ABK were helpful and attentive and researched this ‘exclusive property’ contract well.  Problems and issues were reported promptly and they were able to employ the skills in-house or identify sub-contractors to deal with incidental repairs that arose throughout the refurbishment of this graded listed building.

Brilliant company, finished the complete renovation of one of our properties in High Wycombe exactly to timescale, we have re-let the property already.

Owner, Property Estates – Amersham

We have worked with ABK on several occasions and the last project was the refurbishment of the upper floors of the South Wing of our Grade II listed building.  The project was to convert existing office space into an open plan area for picnic lunches as well as extending a meeting room to become a classroom/workshop room and refurbishing a staff room and loo.  The work involved demolishing some internal stud walls, installing new walls and floor to ceiling cupboards, new lighting and flooring as well as removing old kitchens and replacing them with new.  All of this work was completed while the Museum was open for business.  Access to site was limited for delivery and removal of goods and waste.  There were no issues at all about the delivery and removal of waste and all work was carried out with little or no disruption to the day to day running of the Museum.  The project was planned well and all trades worked well together.  The workmen were all extremely professional and fulfilled the brief on time, within budget and to our complete satisfaction.  We would have no hesitation in recommending ABK for building projects and, in fact, are about to embark on another project with them for phase two of the development.

Tricia Croot, Office and Facilities Manager, The Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre

The whole experience was painless from my perspective.  The painting was conducted outside of normal business hours and all that I could see were the walls looking cleaner and brighter.

Each morning the office was as I had left it the day before and there were no tell tail signs that painting had taken place the previous evening.

I am happy with the result.

Serena James, Facilities Manager, IFS

“This was the first professional redecoration of our office in a decade. We found the staff that performed the work at our premises to be prompt, friendly, and very professional in their work. They kept us informed on progress throughout their time here, and left the building clean and tidy once work was complete.

We are very satisfied with the work provided.

Thank you to your staff for performing such an excellent job”

Kelly Poole, Administrator

Thank you for the work recently undertaken at our branch, the repairs and decorating were carried out to a high standard and we have been very happy with the results.

Fran Buxton, Branch Manager

They did a very professional job and we are delighted with finish of their work. Even though we (I) changed the goal posts quite a few times whilst ABK were working in the property, my requests were easily accommodated and nothing was too much trouble. It was a pleasure to work with Roy and I hope that future projects go as smoothly.

Lesley Sewell, Sales Manager

I wish to praise the professional and diligent work undertaken by your company. It was of a high quality and I would have no hesitation in recommending ABK to others.

Customer, Oxford

We were pleased with the work we had done; the decorators were well presented, pleasant and very helpful. ABK were actually recommended to us by a friend and we would be happy to recommend ABK to other friends and colleagues. On the whole we are very happy with the whole ABK experience.

Customer, Askett

Excellent results and a pleasure to do business with. We moved to a new (old!) house in July. The whole house was looking very tired indeed, and needed a total overhaul. ABK did a complete redecoration of the inside for us – walls, ceiling and woodwork – before we moved in. We only had 10 days to work with, and they worked flat out, almost around the clock, to get the job done in such a limited time period. I found all the decorators who worked on the job pleasant, tidy, reliable and hard-working. They turned up when they were expected to, tidied up at the end of the day, and did a great job. I was really impressed. So of course I didn’t hesitate to call ABK again when it was time to redecorate the outside of the house. This entailed painting the bare render and refurbishing and painting all the exterior woodwork. Our windows had been in a terrible state. The job included burning back rotten frames where necessary and resin filling in places. When they had finished the windows looked good as new. Once again, a real pleasure to do business with, great results and an excellent team of decorators. I would highly recommend them to anyone (and actually already have) to many of my friends.

Customer, Gerrards Cross

Excellent, professional and trustworthy company. Very tidy, polite and considerate.

Customer, Watlington

Delivered exactly what they promised, on time, and at agreed price. Excellent communication and attitude throughout.

Customer, Princes Risborough

Excellent. Superb attention to detail. Can’t fault them. Polite, careful and skilled.

Customer, High Wycombe

I am the estate manager on a country estate in Buck’s and have been using “ABK” on the estate for both internal and external decoration for about four years.

The decorators are polite and always keep the work area clean and tidy. They understand the need to protect furnishings around them and all contracts have started and been completed on time.

I therefore have no hesitation in recommending their work.

Customer, Ibstone

ABK recently decorated the outside of my house in Downley, the help and advice choosing colours was really appreciated as it looks fantastic. The painters and decorators were punctual, friendly and accommodating and left areas clean and tidy every day. The workmanship has resulted in a top quality job which should last a good while as they used the Dulux Weathershield system on the masonry and Sadolins Classic and Sadolin Extra on the woodwork.

I would highly recommend ABK for any painting job.


Customer, High Wycombe

Just to say thank you for the recent work done. Chris and Chris were amazing. They worked hard and were very pleasant to have around. The house was always left clean and tidy – and the furniture and pictures put back in place. They made the big upheaval of painting the whole house much easier than I imagined! 5 stars!! Thanks again. 

Customer, Gerrards Cross

We were very pleased with the service from ABK from initial estimate to timely completion of the decorating work to our lounge. 

We would recommend the company and Andy (decorator) for friendliness, professionalism, tidiness and good advice.
