Qualified & experienced.
Business owner Colin Strudwick has over 20 years of experience in decorating and property maintenance. In that time he has been involved in all aspects of decorating from commercial, new build, domestic interiors, exteriors and wallpaper hanging. Methods have changed considerably in that time. When Colin first started he did a lot of work on old properties that were still using lime plaster and lime wash paint to distemper.
Colin completed a construction apprenticeship scheme and trained in painting and decorating in the early noughties. More recently he completed a City and Guilds in airless spraying and completed a furniture spraying course.
After working for other businesses for 17 years, Colin set up C Strudwick Decorating in 2016 and has been running the business since then.
National Trust & Heritage work.
Colin has a lot of experience working on National Trust properties including Polesden Lacy, Hatchlands, Clandon Park and Leith Hill place.
Colin feels that it is important to learn new skills and techniques. in 2010 he started to get involved with applying spray finishes. This is now an important part of his business as the finish is of such a high standard.
