JDB have recently completed redecoration works at our home and we would like to say how delighted we are with the completed work.We have used many tradesmen in the past and these guys were up there with the best of them.

Just had my flat renovated after flood damage during those bad weather days! what a brilliant job the guys done, they were friendly and professional and I had full trust in them – I even left them keys as I was working and I never feel confident to do that.

Johnny and the team are highly recommended “FACEBOOK REVIEW”

We had JDB in to paint our exterior woodwork. They were a pleasure to deal with: professional, with good communication throughout and very respectful of our property. Looking at our front porch now, I wish we’d done this much sooner! Would recommend. “YELL REVIEWS”





I initially got JDB in to do decoration work within the property but we were also having issues with our roof. I wasn’t aware they had a roofing side to the business so decided to get their advice and a quote. They were so honest even suggesting we get other quotes and we did but we decided to go ahead with JDB as their knowledge and honesty were head and shoulders above the others. The work was completed on time and at the agreed price and already my neighbours have asked for their details.
I can’t endorse them enough as they have every trade needed covered with the one company and their workmanship is second to none. I’ve now had Decorating, Joinery and Roofing done and every job has been outstanding. All the staff deserve a special mention too as they are really friendly and very hardworking. “YELL REVIEWS”




Excellent job performed on a flood damaged ceiling. Workmanship flawless, would highly recommend JDB’s services. “YELL REVIEW”





What a fabulous job JDB made decorating my daughters flat. Nothing was too much trouble for Derek and Ryan. Very considerate, friendly and they left the place spotless at the end of the job.

Quality of work is superb. We are very impressed.

The Job was well coordinated by John and Lesley. Started and finished as agreed. Great communication. Thank you.

Would not hesitate to recommend JDB. “YELL REVIEW”

From the estimate to the finish, everything was brilliant. Very helpful in all area’s, from contacting the office to the guys on site. The guys did an amazing job. I would recommend JDB 100% everytime “YELL REVIEW”

JDB Decorating and Property Services undertook the renovation of the render on our (external) stairwell and the repainting of the walls and metal railings. The quality of preparation and work was fantastic and was completed within the expected timescale. As part of the planned work, it was suggested that we have the stairwell pressure hosed too – to remove moss and staining – which was a great idea. What a transformation! We were extremely pleased with the work carried out, Johnny and his team were professional and highly skilled and did not pressure us to undertake more work than was necessary (e.g we were able to retain the majority of the (sound) render, which was good). We would not hesitate to recommend them. “YELL REVIEWS”


Jane O



We had woodwork in our conservatory that had suffered water and sun damage to the original varnishing. When Johnny came to see the job, he advised using a special blocking primer to cover the staining. The job was so well done. When he saw the job, Darren suggested using an oil based paint on top to help protect the wood from the high temperatures and it was applied brilliantly. It has also lasted extremely well. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend JDB, as everyone from first contact to the completion of the work was friendly and so very professional. The materials they used were of first class professional quality and expertly used. I usually find it quite difficult to recommend trades people, as there always seems to be an aspect of their work which is below par. Not so with JDB, they’re five star. “YELL REVIEW”


Alan B

From start to finish the service we received from Johnny and his team was first rate. Our living room is now transformed thanks to these guys and I couldn’t be happier. The standard of workmanship is very high – we needed our 100 year old fireplace tied back into the wall (due to poor workmanship by a stove company) and this was not a problem for him. It is now looking superb! We would not hesitate to recommend JDB. As others have said already, Johnny is on the ball from the first point of contact and they are there when they say they’ll be there. Very happy customers. “YELL REVIEW”





Got our hall and landing painted. Very good workmanship and very professional. Explained the whole process from start to finish. I wouldn’t hesitate to use the company again. Thank You. “FACEBOOK REVIEW”


L Martin



We were very pleased with everything that Craig and Ben have done in our house which included our new kitchen/diner extension, hall and staircase plus our lounge. Their attention to detail ensured that we had a first class job from them both and they were a pleasure to have working in our house. They kept us informed, arrived on time and cleared up everything before they went.

They helped us chose the colours and ensured that they matched our new kitchen perfectly including coming up with an ideal solution for some ratty old window framing. Craig did a fantastic job marrying in old coving with new – not an easy task.

Will certainly will use your company again for any future decorating and have no hesitation in recommending them. “YELL REVIEWS”


Mary O



Our second time using JDB and another excellent job. Johnny is extremely helpful and professional as are his team of painters. We live in an old property and had some issues with previous water damage, Johnny and his team worked hard to rectify the problems, ensuring a great final result. JDB are completely professional and trusted, we left them with our keys to have the work completed when we were away, the work was completed and the house left clean and tidy. Johnny is always contactable and offers lots of ideas and options, he personally checks you are completely satisfied with the work at the completion of the job. Excellent value for money and excellent service. Thanks again for a job well done! We would highly recommend JDB. “YELL REVIEW”

Staying in Edinburgh we always found it difficult to find tradesmen we got value for money. We decided to get a number of quotes but not just with cost JDB were so far ahead.
They explained everything in more detail than anyone then the staff were all so reliable and friendly.
The work carried out is outstanding and since then we’ve recommended them to a number of people in fife and Edinburgh all delighted with them.
Thanks for creating such a nice family home. “YELL REVIEWS”

We just had JDB replace all of our house's windows, and they did an excellent job! Professionalism from the very beginning 'til the very end. The price was very reasonable, and the job was completed quickly, to a very high standard with no mess and no fuss. It's rare to find tradesmen like these, who turn up exactly when they say they will. We're so happy that we've already got an estimate for more work which we will be arranging with them very soon. Thanks JDB!

First class service. Turned up on the agreed day and started right away.

Professional, first class service. Started and finished the job on time and everything was completed to an excellent standard, as quoted.

Jim M



We decided to go with JDB to have our entire 2 bedroom flat decorated. Our property is fairly old with a layout that incorporates some awkward angled surfaces and internal heights. Part of the reason we chose JDB was based on their ability to clearly communicate how they would carry out the decorative works in a safe and efficient manner.

We also note the time taken to explain colour and finish options as we had limited knowledge on what was on offer. We really did feel like a priority and that no question was to silly.

In terms of the work, we were delighted to note the quality of the finish and detail (our work also included work to, and around internal cornice sections). Further care was taken to clear up the dust sheets I’m pleased to confirm that our flat was left in a very tidy manner. We were given a sensible timescale on receipt of the quote and I’m very happy to say that the deadlines were met comfortably.

Based on their friendly & patient approach, and excellent quality of work we can’t recommend JDB highly enough. “GOOGLE REVIEW”

I contacted JDB services to carry out wall papering of three rooms to create feature walls, JDB advised on types of wallpaper and finish. All work was completed to a high standard. As we were away on holiday at the same we left a key with JDB services and we came back to no mess and a brilliant job. The helpful advise given really helped and makes our living room, dining room and separate sitting room look amazing “GOOGLE REVIEW”

Absolutely over the moon with my new living room and bedroom. I needed plastering and a fresh look to both rooms, and boy did I get just that! Both rooms walls are as flat as pancakes and the cutting in was so clean and sharp. And to top it all off, I had no tidying up to do as there was no mess left behind. I couldn’t recommend JDB any more. Top job, thanks! “GOOGLE REVIEW”





Highly recommend, specialists in their field. Needed several rooms decorated including painting, wall papering and external painting, and boy it was big style showroom standard! Attention to detail is what these guys prides themselves on. Surperb prices for 5* service no hidden surprises. Always on hand with advice, colour charts and ideas and most importantly fully contactable at all times throughout the job. Housekeeping was exceptionally clean, tidy and respectful at all times. Friendly, honest, approachable and we can’t recommend JCB highly enough. Thanks guys will be using again for sure. “YELL REVIEW”


J Bird



JDB did an outstanding job of our spare bedroom. The walls and skirting boards were in need of quite a bit of work as the room had somewhat carelessly been used for storage (by me!), and had taken quite a few knocks to the plaster/woodwork over the years. As we were turning it into a guest bedroom, I really wanted it to look as good as new. I needn’t have concerned myself as the finished work was first class – what a difference! The job was done quickly and professionally with minimal disruption and the utmost attention to detail – I will definitely be using JDB again! “GOOGLE REVIEW”

Overall very happy with the service provided by Johnny from JDB Decorating & Property Services. Johnny painted my living room & conservatory and he also made an excellent job of painting a set of French doors that many would not have attempted. Clean, fast & reliable.







Don’t normally write reviews but JDB deserve the time and effort. Superb quality workmanship. The guys were efficient, friendly and transformed my flat. Nothing was a problem for them. Would highly recommend to anyone.







I had JDB in last week doing work in my house. They were recommended. What a great job done as well and prompt the service was second to none. Would recommend to anyone. Thanks again “FACEBOOK REVIEW”

Can’t recommend Johnny Bisset and JDB Decor enough. I was let down by a few people and picked him from reviews on here and he’ll now be my go to for any decorating needs. He fitted me in at short notice around his other work and the guy he sent Craig did a beautiful job of hall/stairs/landing and bedroom. They deserve these reviews. Nothing was too much trouble and more importantly the customer service and communication was excellent – Something I feel from recent experience is sadly lacking from a lot of tradesmen. “GOOGLE REVIEW”

A year after moving in to our new home we were finally able to put our stamp on it after looking at beige walls. The expert advice and professional service we received from John and the team at JDB has transformed our house into a home. We couldn’t have asked for more. The guys are reliable, professional, tidy and take great pride in what they do. I would have no hesitation in recommending them- in fact they are now painting my mothers house. Thanks for everything. A very happy customer “FACEBOOK REVIEW”





Thank you to JDB for such a professional service.
My mother recently had wallpapering and painting done and having had a few quotes was a little apprehensive.
She decided to go with JDB and the results, service and time that they took to explain everything really put her at ease.
She’s not particularly tech savvy but has mentioned how good they were that I felt I should review.
Trustworthy company with great guys. “GOOGLE REVIEW”

I couldn’t recommend this company enough they were simply outstanding from start to finish. The owner( Johnny) visited us and explained how they’d do the job and roughly how long it would take. At the time we couldn’t have imagined just how great it would look and how they could do it but the finished job is incredible. Initially it was a full extension but we ended up getting another two rooms done. A special thank you must go to some of their team of Darren, Ben and Craig who were first class with the standard of work but also very reliable and trustworthy. We were blown away also by the fact their sales Director ( Gareth) came to see us throughout making sure it was going well and on time and at the very end gave us a box of chocolates!! This was a gesture that was not needed but they simply wanted to show their appreciation which we were stunned by. They were a real class act and everything Johnny said they’d do they done and much more. Thank you again. “GOOGLE REVIEW”

I originally had this company out to fit a couple of doors for me one of which required extra work to fit the space!!. I have since had them out to revamp my hall and have to say that on both occasions everyone who came to work was absolutely fantastic and I cannot praise the company highly enough. As per other reviews Johnny came out to quote me and tell me exactly what would be done and when and they were out when they said and the work was completed when Johnny said it would be. I have recommended the company to work colleagues with the confidence that any job would be finished to the highest quality. Again, fantastic job and thank you. Ev “YELL REVIEW”

Top job!

Given that the initial email enquiry was answered within about 20 mins and Johnny was here within a few days, i would have no hesitation in recommending JBD.

Great service, great cost and professional approach.

Future job already lined up and given the cost and finishing can see more heading JDB’s way.

Strongly recommend without hesitation!

We have just used JDB to paint the wooden facia and sofits as well as the front door. We had been let down by other painters who never turned up but Johnny was round within a day of phoning and offered a competitive price.

I needed a job done quickly but have always done my own decorating, so it was a real leap of faith for me to invite Johnny and his team into my home. Not only did Johnny schedule the job in to suit my timescales, but Craig and Ben were absolutely fantastic. They installed coving and decorated 2 rooms and the standard and quality of their work is exceptional. They were a pleasure to have in my home. If, like me, you are unsure of inviting a decorating firm into your home, don’t think twice about calling Johnny and his team – the best recommendation I can give is to say I now plan to have the boys back to re-decorate my whole house! “YELL REVIEW”

I previously had a nightmare with tradesmen making appointments for a quote to have my hall refurbished then not turn up. Until I had contacted JDB Decorating and Property Maintenance. John was here ahead of time and provided a quote that was both accurate and within timescales promised. I have had the ceilings plastered, spotlights installed and sockets and switches changed by Alan and then all paintwork was prepared and carried out by Jordan and Barry who are very nice, polite and tidied up after they had finished. ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED with my new hall. I will definitely recommend JDB and will be keeping their number in my mobile for future projects “YELL REVIEWS”
