Residential Property in Edinburgh

It's been an absolute pleasure working with George Nicolson Decorators. The company was responsive to changing needs (both government restrictions for Covid and our own - availability and scope). They were professional throughout and gave me something I know not to assume: absolute confidence that they will do what they say and dependability at all times.  The work was delivered to a high standard.  I wouldn't hesitate to use GND again and highly recommend their work for domestic projects.

The responsibility and ultimately the satisfaction gained from Mr Grant's apprentice project was important in allowing our apprentices to further develop their trade and non-trade skills.

As well as being impressed with the works undertaken by your apprentices, Kristofer M and Chloe T, they kept me well informed as the job progressed and were very nice to deal with. They did very well so I simply wanted to say I’m absolutely delighted with the decorating of my flat.

A Parish Church of Scotland In The Centre Of Edinburgh

Our church decided just a few weeks before we had two weddings, that the main large Church Hall should be redecorated. We took Nicolsons up on their earlier estimate and with a very tight deadline instructed the work. Fortunately, we could accommodate their starting a day earlier than hoped and they completed two and a half days sooner than anticipated. The quality of the work was excellent, their painters were industrious and also very personable. The contract went as the best painting jobs should and was very well run. We are already going to use them again for a quick paint of the church kitchen before it is used for catering for the Edinburgh Night Shelter for the rough sleepers run by Bethany Christian Trust.

Making Heritage Live

The paint finishes at Cupar Burgh Chambers, inside and out, have been a key part of the transformation of this landmark building. Externally, Nicolson's work to create striking trompe l'oeil window effects perfectly compliments the newly revealed stone. Internally, the carefully painted walls, panelling and cornices have helped us to create an authentic interior that all our holiday apartment guests enjoy and comment on.

Many thanks for the job. Unusually minimal contact from me, which is a good thing.

The aim was always for a clean and fresh look ready for the season ahead and we definitely achieved that'.
