Hi, my name is Gareth Hitchin and I am the owner of GH Decor.

So, you’re looking for a painter and decorator and now it’s my job to convince you that you’ve come to the right place. I firmly believe it’s important to learn a little bit about someone before you can trust them with you beloved home or business, so here’s a very brief history of my career so far.

I started painting with my dad when i was 16 years old but when i turned 20 I decided to join the Army and believe it or not, spent 10 years as a military dog handler and trainer serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. After my military career I spent 5 years working in private security and the prison service before returning to painting and decorating with my father. Some might wonder how such a long career in security would make me a successful painter. Well the military in particularly taught me its core values, which are Courage, Discipline, Respect, Integrity, Loyalty and Selfless Commitment. These values will stay with me until the day I die and in the meantime they allow me to provide excellent customer service to my current and potential new clients.

I decided to start my own painting company after hearing lots of negative feedback about my trade in general and I wanted to run a business which reflects my ethos of treating every job as if the work is carried out in my own home. I expect very high standards from myself and the work carried out by my colleagues. I always endeavour to provide my clients with a stress free experience, ensuring continuous communication prior to the work commencing and during the project.
