My name is Derek Holland and I am a Dulux Accredited painter and decorator living in the Vic Park area.
I present myself as a very professional tradesman as a painter & decorator. I always endeavor to provide excellent customer service and attention to detail to provide a quality finish to all of my clients. I continually strive to provide ultimate customer satisfaction. This has resulted in me building up a large client base, and obtaining a good percentage of repeat work.
I have 30+ years of experience in the trade working in mainly the domestic side of the decorating trade, but I have also carried out a number of commercial projects, such as retail shops, restaurants and leisure facilities.
I have undertaken work in a large variety of quality homes and private dwellings, ranging from painting just one room for a client to carrying out a full redecoration including all types of wall coverings and paint effects in a ten bedroom mansion.
I ran my own very successful business in the United Kingdom for 13 years, before immigrating to Perth in 2005. I employed several quality staff on a full time basis, and also provided a training program to several apprentices in that time. One of those apprentices has now gone on to run his, own successful business and I would like to think I had some influence on that.
Since being in Perth I have been trading under the above name and continue to provide the same level of quality workmanship and customer service to continue to add to the client base that I have already achieved.
I was registered as a Dulux select decorator for five years prior to leaving the United Kingdom, the similar scheme in Australia being Dulux Accredited, which I am now a member of. This is an accolade only given to quality painters & decorators who meet a high standard of workmanship and customer service. This is a guarantee for the standard of work that I carry out and the quality of finish that I provide. I have a City & Guilds of London Institute trade qualification.
I have provided a list of all the types of work that I carry out as follows:-
- All tools, equipment and drop sheets provided
- Full preparation of all areas to be carried out (excluding major plastering work)
- Materials for individual projects (optional)
- All types of painting using oil based and acrylic based paints
- Paint effects i.e. rag-rolling, sponging and dragging
- An extensive range of wall coverings from blown vinyl’s to hand printed wallpapers
- Interior and exterior work undertaken
- Willing to travel within the Perth metro area
