“We have just had our hall, stairs and landing re-decorated by the team from Simon Santucci Decorators and are thrilled with the result.

When we were thinking about having the job done Simon visited us and talked through our various options, including some of the new products used for decorating purposes which we simply did not know about. On reflection, this helped us make some good decisions about materials used and we are optimistic the final outcome will remain looking good for longer.

Simon arrived with his team on the first day to talk them through the plan. Thereafter Billy and Ray carried out the job with great efficiency and we were impressed how clean they left the house when they finished each day. We never had to get the hoover out to clear up after them! They were friendly, polite, and approachable. We would certainly be happy to have them do work for us in the future.

Thanks to everyone!
Viv – Lympstone

“I was extremely pleased with the decorating that Pat Llewellyn carried out from Simon Santucci’s team. The overseeing of the work by Simon was appreciated.I was particularly impressed by Pat’s attention to detail and the meticulous way he worked. The final result was superb.

Susan – Exmouth

“Simon & his team completely re-painted the interior of my house earlier this year. I’m extremely pleased with the result. His team were very reliable, motivated and delivered high quality workmanship. The job required a significant amount of preparation of the woodwork & walls which was done to a really high standard. As a result of their efforts, the paint finish is excellent.


“Thank You Simon,
We first saw your vans around the area when we moved to Budleigh. From our first meeting
you were most helpful. We needed our apartment painted throughout. Tony, one of your
team, did an Excellent Job.

You often dropped by to check everything was progressing according to plan. As we were new to the area, you recommended other trades people who have gone on to do excellent jobs for us too.

I am happy to recommend you to any others who need their homes painting and decorating to a high standard.

Christina and Martin – Budleigh Salterton

“Simon and his team have completely refurbished our Sidmouth block of flats, to say it was in need is an understatement, not only was the paint pelling off, the render was bubbling, cracking and missing in places. Simon’s team have completely renovated the building – stripping, repairing, finishing and painting it and the end result is superb.

Not only was this a great job, Simon and the team were professional from the very first visit to quote right to finishing the final touches at the end. The job started on time, was completed within the timescales and the cost was exactly as agreed. Simon was always available to discuss the job as it went along and went out of his way to ensure we were happy with the result. We would definitely recommend Simon Santucci Decorators as a reasonably priced, reliable, friendly company that deliver a quality finish.”

Tracey – Barton Court, Sidmouth

“At Abbeyfield Tavistock Society we employed Simon, after a personal recommendation, to repair many faults in the external render of our extensive property and then to redecorate the large wall areas with a specialist coating. Simon’s team were most professional in their attention to detail and the pride they took in achieving a high-quality product, with which we are impressed. They were always pleasant, respectful, and cheerful in their work and kept us informed of progress daily. We are most pleased to recommend Simon Santucci Decorators to others.”

Graham Osborn (Abbeyfield Tavistock Society) from Tavistock

“Dear Simon, we are very pleased with the work that Ray has done for us. Preparation, making good and painting,…. Excellent! He is reliable, punctual and tidy and most pleasant. Would recommend to others. Thank You”

Brenda & John

“We are very happy with the total work of painting the outside of our seafront house, both front and back. We were given good advice on the most appropriate paint to be used. The guys worked fast and hard, with good preparation and finish. A very professional service all round. Would recommend to others without hesitation!”

Liz and Neil

“Simon Santucci & his team did an excellent job of painting & decorating all the rooms of my house that I recently moved into. I highly recommend them for their extreme efficiency, reliability, tidiness & positive enthusiasm.”

M. Kuyper

“We have been really happy with the work Ray has done for us. Both Simon and Ray have been helpful and knowledgeable throughout the process and completed the works to a high standard. We plan to use the company again and would definitely recommend.”

Mr & Mrs Taylor

“Santucci Decorators carried out the renovation of our house in Exmouth over the course of a couple of months. Simon coordinated the project which required plasterers (to replaster all the rooms), electricians (to rewire the house) and plumbers and gas engineers (to fit a new bathroom and plumb in a new gas line). Not only that but he then painted all the interior (including sanding down the floors and painting them), as well as the exterior to such a high standard and under intense time pressure. We are so happy with the high quality finish and would highly recommend to anyone who’s looking for a quality, well-connected tradesperson. Thank you again!”

“Santucci Ltd carried out the redecoration of our Snooker Room during November/December 2020. It was far from straightforward, requiring a lot of preparation, including joinery work and damp treatment which they carried out conscientiously. All the many fixtures and fittings were carefully removed, stored and re-fixed as they were, or better. The tradesmen were respectful of our Members, reliable and trustworthy. The finished job looks superb and has attracted many compliments from our Members. All additional preparation work was incorporated without fuss and the final account was as quotation with just a couple of small extras, agreed as we went along.
I have no hesitation in recommending Santucci Ltd.”

Bill Gott, Chairman, Budleigh Salterton Club

“Stripped walls and made good the bare walls then painted throughout the house. Removed radiators to ensure a complete and professional finish. We are extremely pleased with the work undertaken by the team. They were reliable throughout, worked well together to the highest standard and were always very tidy. Great personalities too. We would not hesitate to recommend Simon Santucci and his team to others.”

Phil and Sue, Meadow Road, Budleigh Salterton

“Hi Simon,
Would just like to say a thank you to you and your boys re a first class job at my offices. Nice tidy work, polite fellas, on time and on budget. I understand even there choice of radio channel was spot on. Thanks again.. very pleased”

Mike, Baines & Co, Rolle Street, Exmouth

“Simon and his team completed the huge task of repainting and repairing our detached house. They were very thorough in the cleaning, preparing and painting the whole exterior.

Simon is very knowledgable and recommended fabulous weatherproof exterior paint which is necessary as our house gets all the ‘sea’ weather. He organised the scaffolding, the render repairs and painting and kept us informed along the way.

As part of this job he then undertook the redecoration of our master bedroom, once again organising all the relevant tradespeople to complete the work which included a brilliant carpenter who had fab ideas great electricians who also came up with super suggestions and the plasterer who was very accommodating.

There were a few extra costs along the way, however they were impossible to foresee and a small price to pay to ensure the house was weatherproofed.

The painter Darren was brilliant and we felt very comfortable to leave all these trades in our home completing the work. The results were brilliant, we have a newly painted house and a beautiful bedroom. Thanks Simon!

We have used you before and will use you again in the future.”

M.F & D.F from Exmouth

“Simon Santucci carried out the external painting to the Budleigh Salterton Club during summer 2020. Their approach to the job was professional in all areas: pricing, planning, preparation, completion and snagging. Understanding of the fact that the Club was being used during this time, the workers were tidy and trustworthy. Although not the cheapest, Santucci delivered a first class product, and we are delighted with the outcome.”
Bill Gott, Chairman, Budleigh Salterton Club

“Many Thanks for getting this done so quickly. Your employee was very efficient and professional. Thanks”

Julie Reid from Exeter

I look forward to asking you to refurbish our guest pod next year.”

Tony – Lympstone

Jackie Whitney

“I recently had the entire interior of a 5 bed house decorated coming up to Christmas with 4 family members and transitory guests during the time the team were with us and experienced almost no inconvenience. At the end of the each days work we could easily live in the house. Simon sent 2 of his team to do the work who were polite, courteous and respectful of us and our home.The attention to detail and quality of the work was outstanding. I attempted to anticipate moving furniture before the next days work – didn’t always get to it but there was never an issue and the guys just did what was needed to get the job done without any fuss. I would recommend this company on the basis of their professionalism, quality of work and excellent customer relations.”

Dr R Davies

“Simon and his team have just finished a full re-decoration of the lounge, dining room and bedroom in my new home. The result is wonderful. I am really pleased with what they did and the advice they gave. The rooms needed a good bit of attention but they only did what was necessary – Simon himself said he would not be the cheapest but I would rather have a good quality professional job done and know it will last. He will be the first I call when I need more work done. Thank you Simon / Mick / Tony and Dave.”

Both my brother Daniel and I are most exacting customers, so for us to be impressed is a high recommendation.”

Louisa, Sidmouth

We are happy to recommend your business.”

Helen Enright, Woodbury

ctcrm“Simon Santucci Decorators have delivered an excellent service at a reasonable price, which sometimes not the case as some contractors add zeros to their quotes just because they are dealing with the MOD.

I will be using these guys for other projects here at the Commando Training Centre Royal Marines in the future.”

Simon was quick off the mark to provide a quote, they got started much sooner than I expected and Tony worked very hard to complete the job in a timely manner for us. So overall we were very happy with their service and our house looks fantastic thanks to Simon and his team.”

Joel Heatley, 2017

“Thank you for the decorating of our bedroom which you have just completed for us. The work has been carried out to a high standard and we are very pleased with the result. It was very helpful that you were able to visit on the day I contacted you and give the quote the same evening.

The job has been completed quickly and efficiently and Tony and Ashley were happy to work on the Bank Holiday to get it finished on time. Tony did an excellent job of giving a smooth finish to the ceiling which was previously very rough, and overall the attention to detail is excellent.

We would be very happy to recommend you. We will be in touch again when we next need any interior or exterior decorating.”

R Scott, Topsham, 2016

Without exception, Simon’s team were punctual, courteous, tidy and hard-working. They did a fantastic job of painting the interior of my home, and each evening they left it clean and tidy.

Simon himself called by most days to make sure all was well; the team kept to the agreed schedule. I am really grateful that his company was recommended to me for the highly professional standard of the work.

Catharine Wall, 2016

Simon is polite, friendly and punctual, arriving when he said he would and sending the quote the next day, he also checked regularly how the job was going. The standard of work carried out by Tony was extremely professional, he was punctual, courteous, tidy and hard-working. He did a lovely job of painting a couple of outside doors and the exterior and interior of my sash windows and at the end leaving the windows beautifully clean. Would highly recommend.

Dilys, 2017

“Hi there,my name is pat and im a support worker in the community. For the past 2 days I’ve been working with a lady in Portland avenue, where some of your team are working. When I first arrived there was limited parking and i wasn’t sure where to park. One of your lads went out of his way to show me the designated parking area, another helped me find the flat i was looking for and then on the way out they put the code in which releases the gates. They are a smashing bunch of blokes really helpful and friendly. I just wanted to say that it gives your business a really positive reputation with staff like that on your team.”

Pat Harwood

“We are very pleased with the services from your company from first contact, the initial consultation and quotation of costs to completion of the project. Allowing for breaks, resulting from wet weather, Chris an Phil have worked flat out! Always cheerful and polite. There was not one little gap noticeable where they omitted to mask and shield around door and window panes and frames. Old cracks revealed from the initial pressure wash were thoroughly and professionally repaired allowing ample drying time before application of the prime coat and eventual final coat. A job well done.”

Exmouth, April 2016

“Hello Simon, just to thank you very much for the decorating you did for us. It is an excellent result with a minimum of fuss and such polite workers too. Thank you again”

Mary and Don Latham, 2016

I have used Simon Santucci to paint the outside of my house twice now. He, and the men who work for him, are a pleasure to have around. They have done a good job, and cleared up after themselves. I would certainly use them again.

Caroline, 2017

I was away for two weeks on holiday when Simon and his team arrived to start the redecoration of our wood frame balconies and external window frames in the 18 apartment block for which I am chairman of the management company.

I need not have been concerned about not being present. The whole team were helpful, considerate, polite, tidy and clean. They also redecorated my bathroom whilst I was away. This was an addition to the contract and much appreciated. The result and quality of work are just what I wanted. Simon’s estimate for the works was the invoiced price, with absolutely no surprises.

I would use his company again and I have no reservations in recommending Simon’s work.

Trevor, 2017

“I wanted to drop you a line just to say how pleased we were with the painting of our house this week. Your employees have done a marvellous job. We were impressed at how thorough they were in their preparation and in undertaking the painting itself. The house looks so good now and the finish on the front door is remarkable – not a brush stroke to be seen.

The painters cleared away at the end of each day and left everything in tip top order. Also, they were friendly and good humoured (despite the cold weather) at all times. We will certainly be in touch when the next job arises.

Again, many thanks.”

Paul & Norah Baxter – Exmouth

Look like new again

Dear Simon. We just wanted to thank you for making the outside of our house look like new again. The guys, Ashley and Adam, were always prompt, tidy, very pleasant and courteous, worked hard and I would say planned their work so no time was lost. Should we need any other decorating inside the house we would not hesitate to call you, or to recommend you. Many Thanks.

Rosemary and John J, 2017

Very considerate

“Simon has just finished a complete exterior redecoration for us. As usual his team was hardworking and thorough as well as being very considerate. We were particularly pleased that issues which arose during the job could be dealt with as they cropped up, such as replacing some rotten timber and putting in some new guttering as well as a few other maintenance issues.”

Ros, 2017


“My wife and I were impressed by the professionalism that Simon and his team showed at every stage of the external decoration of our house. The work is of a high standard throughout, but perhaps as importantly, those in the team led more than ably by Simon showed a high understanding of what good customer service requires. Rest assured we will call for Simon and his team immediately.”

Tom and June Cox, 2017

They are very good

“Dear Simon and Staff, I was recommended to your firm by a mutual friend; we talked and his view was; ‘they are very good’.

This has proved to be completely founded and true. I would recommend Simon Santucci Decorators to anyone as the work required has been completed to the finest and highest standard. With an awful summer to contend with, rain, wind, and never one day without some frustrating interruption due to the poor weather affecting the work in progress, progress was made with a most professional standard of work in all tasks and the highest finish with my full satisfaction.”

R.E. Pouse, Woodbury, Exeter, September 2015

Quality Of Work

“Excellent job, not the cheapest quote, but middle of the road.

However, well pleased with the choice we made and the quality of work and Simon’s project management skills made our entire new house purchase turn into our dream home.

I can only thank Simon and wish him continued success…”

E Leleleu

Hard Working

“We would like to commend the work of the painters who have almost completed their work on the exterior of our building.

At all times they were hard working, quiet & considerate.

We would have no hesitation in recommending them and are sure you will use them again on other properties you manage.”


Attention To Detail

“Very pleased with Simon and his team.

Timely communication, competent standards of workmanship and pleasing attention to detail, for example leaving the site clean and tidy at the end of the job.

Certainly very good value for money.”

Rick & Sue Harmes, Lympstone, July 2015

  • I was very impressed how promptly Simon responded to my request in providing a carpenter to refit new kitchen cabinet drawers, doors and install a new ceramic sink. Dave Reigate did a fantastic job, he was very thorough and meticulous in his work and paid particular attention to detail. He did some painting work too in the kitchen which was of the highest standard. Dave has also just completed a lovely new boundary fence for me. I have had fences put up in my garden in the past but nothing like the quality and professionalism that went into thi... Read More
  • We are very grateful to Simon Santucci and his team for all their hard work, preparing and decorating our new home. Simon was extremely helpful and flexible with our challenging time frame. As we lived away from the property, we completely trusted Simon to complete the work on our behalf. We were delighted with the finished result. We would thoroughly recommend Simon Santucci and his team.
  • We highly recommend Simon Santucci Decorators. We are very pleased with the work done for us from preparation to the final painting,…. Excellent! They are reliable, punctual and tidy and most pleasant. Would highly recommend to others. Thank You
  • Simon project managed the renovation of our house coordinating electricians, plumbers and carpenters to rewire, fit a new bathroom and new staircase as well as fix windows etc. He also coordinated plasterers to re-plaster all the rooms and his decorators painted both the exterior and interior to such a high standard. His aftercare has also been top notch and I wouldn't hesitate to call him if I had any issues. Highly recommend- we would use him again but he's done such a good job it won't be for a while!
