Rosemary and John J from Exmouth , September 5, 2017
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.
Trevor Heptinstall from Chairman, Warley Management (Exmouth) Ltd , August 30, 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.
Caroline HW from Budleigh Salterton , August 25, 2017
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.
Tom and June C from Sidmouth , July 25, 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 if and when we have a need of his and his team’s skills, immediately.
Rod M from Exeter , June 28, 2017
We’re very pleased with your redecoration of our flat and the block itself. We’re very grateful to Ashley for properly finishing all items in need of attention.
Thanks for sorting everything and we look forward to seeing you at some future point when necessary.
With very best wishes and I hope that your efforts result in the ongoing success that you and your Company deserve.
Mike and Gill Carney from Lympstone , April 28, 2017
We are both delighted with the exterior coating work carried out. The guys were respectful of our home, careful and thorough in their preparation and the end result has transformed the look of the house for the future.
We are happy to recommend Santucci Decorators and complement the scaffolders they organised for us as well. Will certainly use again for any decoration work.
Ron & Shirley Taylor from East Budleigh , April 5, 2017
We chose Simon Santucci to carry out Render repairs and the external repainting of our Georgian house.
Our choice was influenced by the high standard of the work carried out by him on other properties in our village and due to his firm being a member of Dulux Select Decorators.
We are very happy with the quality of the work carried out and with the professional care taken by Simon in managing our contract.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Simon Santucci's firm .
Dilys from (by email) , March 21, 2017
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.
Catharine W from Topsham , February 14, 2017
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.
Many thanks to all concerned.
Jill Whitelegg from Exeter , February 9, 2017
Excellent service. Did a very professional job on decorating the outside of our house. Very polite workers.
HH from Exton , November 22, 2016
I would like to convey our thanks to you and your great guys for having completed our recent decorating. Its not easy to find a really skilled 'wallpaper (er) these days, but you certainly have one, 'Mick' really knows his stuff!! Great paintwork too and a great clean up afterwards.Thanks again.
JM from Sidford , November 17, 2016
They have done an amazing job and turned the building site into our house again.
Richard Swann from Newton Poppleford , November 4, 2016
For remedial work after a water leak:
Many thanks to Simon Santucci Decorators for the professional way of working, namely:
* Your quick response to assess and start the work to be done.
*. The introduction of your painters before starting the work.
*. The care taken by your painters in moving and protecting fittings and fixtures
*. The quality of workmanship was excellent, the rooms were left very clean and the furniture was returned to its original position.
Finally you came to inspect the work and to see if we were satisfied.
Thank you for a job well managed from start to finish.
R Scott from Topsham , November 1, 2016
For decorating flat.
Simon and the team have just completed internal decorating work for us and, as usual, the work has been completed quickly, efficiently and to their usual high standard.
Jon R from [by email] , August 5, 2016
We are very pleased with the Andura coating as it has successfully covered up a number of unsightly cracks in the render and hidden some poorly finished patches of new render where window alterations had been made. Simon was extremely patient and helpful during the difficult decision about the colour, which was eventually mixed according to our specification and is exactly what we’d hoped for. The preparation work was done quickly, and effectively protected all objects on the walls and patios from unwanted paint. The inevitable disturbance for us during the spraying process was minimised by the use of transparent covering material on many windows and leaving access doors unsealed until the last minute. We were impressed by the close attention given to restoring items to their original positions and leaving the site tidy.
Mr and Mrs C.J. Brightman from (by email) , June 30, 2016
We employed Simon Santucci's company to redecorate our downstairs hall, stairs and upstairs hall and landing. The work included all the paintwork.
This was carried out over five days by his team who were exceptionally polite and neat and tidy in their work.
We are very pleased with the result which is professional and admired by all.
We would certainly recommend this company to others.
Mary and Don Latham from (by email) , June 4, 2016
An excellent result with a minimum of fuss and such polite workers too. Thank you again
Nick Hall from Sidmouth , May 16, 2016
We phoned Simon in desperation - we had a large job we needed doing well, within unrealistic timescales.
Simon explained that the timeframes would require him to compromise the high standards he likes to keep, but he would do what he could in the time available.
He gave us good advice to help us choose cost-effective materials, which he was able to source immediately. Then the team set to work throughout the house. They worked quickly, they worked quietly. They prepared surfaces well and their work has transformed our home.
We are incredibly grateful for the honest, friendly approach of this company.
Mike and Brenda Chanter from Exmouth , May 6, 2016
Thank you for the splendid work you did regarding the complete redecoration of our flat. Russell and Thomas, who did the work, were easy going and nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly recommend you to anyone.
Sue N from Bishopsteignton , April 26, 2016
I would highly recommend the services of Simon Santucci Decorators.
The cracked, uneven and leaking exterior of my house has been transformed by their high quality waterproof products that I'm confident will last for decades.
The team were polite, tidy and professional in their work offering detailed explanations at each stage of procedure.
The speedy completion of works have exceeded my expectations.
R Scott from Topsham , March 30, 2016
For the decorating of our bedroom.
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.
T Allan from [by email] , March 24, 2016
Tom came and did the finishing touches a little while ago, so all looking good. Am very pleased, especially given what the starting point was!
So thanks to everyone for all their hard work and to you for all the organisation and constant monitoring as things progressed.
Mrs Pouse from Exmouth , September 18, 2015
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.
Rosemary A-C from Budleigh Salterton , August 13, 2015
The gentlemen were most courteous and professional - which is much appreciated.
Rick and Sue Harmes from Lympstone , August 3, 2015
Very pleased with the professional way our recent project was delivered by 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.
Simon G from Honiton , July 20, 2015
Did an excellent job decorating the exterior of our Devon longhouse. Good advice, and a very high standard of finish. You will probably find more competitive offerings, but if you after piece of mind and assurance then highly recommended.
Jennifer K from Woodbury Salterton , June 10, 2015
Could not be more pleased with the workmanship. Mike and Tony did a really good job and were very pleasant to have around.
Fiona Brownhill from Exeter , December 2, 2014
Simon's workmen were polite, courteous and worked methodically to meet a very tight deadline. They delivered on time, on budget and at a reasonable price. Also, the results were stunning.
Working with good people makes such a difference. Thank you!
A Wilkinson from Topsham , November 27, 2014
Simon Santucci and his friendly team did a highly professional and efficient job decorating the inside and outside of my house. Simon couldn't have been more helpful and responsive when any problems arose. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Murray & Sue B from Dunchideock , April 29, 2014
We are really pleased with the end result and commend your lads Nick, Tomasz and Pavel for their excellent work and attention to detail. The clean guttering, and polished brassware looks really professional.
We would certainly not hesitate to recommend your services to friends and acquaintances.
Denis & Diana Warry from Woodbury , February 26, 2014
We can thoroughly recommend Simon Santucci. They have done a marvellous job of re-decorating our hall. We needed the job done quickly, so we had 4 workmen working on it most of the time. We think they're the jolliest lot of workmen we've ever had - lots of laughter and NO Radio 1.
A really splendid and professional finish.
Mary Griffiths from Exmouth , November 27, 2013
I must congratulate you on the high standards of your team.
Over the 5 weeks they were hard working, reliable, very polite and a pleasure to have in my house. Very importantly they tidied up every day so that it was a pleasure to return home.
They were as proud of their work as I was with the end result.
I recommend them wholeheartedly.
Stephen Locke from Otterton , November 20, 2013
Thanks for the exterior painting which you recently completed within the cost agreed - despite the weather being very difficult. As other customers have said, your painters are very quiet, polite and conscientious.
Mrs P H from Budleigh Salterton , September 12, 2013
[Email as forwarded from Simon Santucci]
I asked your firm to attend to the decoration of the hall, stairway, landing, kitchen, bedroom and en suite, and lounge in my apartment.. You came to see what needed to be done and gave me a quote which I accepted. You arranged the work to be done at a time of my convenience.
The men came punctually each day and the work proceeded very smoothly. The walls were painted with emulsion and all the woodwork was undercoated and top coated.
The decorating was charged as per quote.
The quality of the work was excellent and I was pleased with the end result. I can thoroughly recommend Mr Santucci's firm for any decorating that is necessary.
Mr and Mrs Hawking from Exmouth , August 9, 2013
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 and considerate.
We would have no hesitation in recommending them. Being on the lower floor we were in constant daily contact with them.
Liz and Dave from Exmouth , July 23, 2013
For redecoration of kitchen and sun room.
I just wanted to say how pleased we were with the painting work carried out by Simon Santucci. The painter (Pawell) arrived when he said he would each day, was courteous and helpful throughout and did an excellent job. He was also very careful and took pains to avoid paint splashes.
Fred R from East Budleigh , July 5, 2013
Just to say thank you very much for the excellent job you made of painting the exterior railings to our steps.
We are very pleased with the work which was done in a professional and friendly manner and would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others.
Jacqui S from Exmouth , May 17, 2013
We are thrilled with the work and compliment Simon’s team on their friendly manner and professional work.
The Salutation Inn from Topsham , April 15, 2013
After refurbishment work on the Salutation Inn performed by Santucci Decorators (and others), the Topsham Society awarded the Salutation Inn an award for making ‘A significant contribution to the enhancement of the town’.
I Bull from Exmouth , March 6, 2013
The work you carried out at Withycombe Drive was great.
In fact the landlord returned to the UK this week and visited the property and in his words “The paint job looks excellent!”
I have reminded my colleagues of the excellent and reasonably priced work you provide.
Thank you for your help in keeping a landlord satisfied.

Geoff B from Axminster , February 4, 2013
Many thanks for the very quick response to our enquiry. We are very pleased with the new ceilings.
Phil V from Powlesland Rd, Exeter , January 4, 2013
I approached Simon’s firm following comments on the Dulux and ourlocalexpert.co.uk web sites. I didn’t feel at all pressured and was offered advice on a particular issue concerning a resin coated door. After agreeing a start date, Mick arrived on time to start work. I worked at home that day to answer any final queries. I was impressed by the speed of the work even where he had to go the extra mile with a steel coated door but even more impressed by the quality. During a break, Mick gave me a couple of tips but even armed with those and doubtless many more, I’ll always be a strictly DIY amateur and having now seen a top pro in action, I don’t feel inclined to ever pick up a paint brush in anger again. I’ll be using Simon’s firm for my next decorating job.
Ros Scott from (not supplied) , October 8, 2012
Thank you for the excellent job you have just done decorating the outside of our house. It has been a highly professional job from start to finish and we are delighted with the results. All the team have been friendly and courteous and the work has been efficient and thorough. We would be happy to recommend you.
Tom Pyne from Budleigh Salterton , September 3, 2012
We were grateful for your efforts to accommodate an urgent project at short notice and are delighted with the completed works. You did exactly as you promised - and a bit more! Our sincere thanks go to Terry, Jodie and Ash, who have done a great job and who have been a pleasure to have around - punctual, courteous, accommodating and helpful at all times. The work was completed on time, to a high standard, using materials of excellent quality. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company.
P Maby, Chairman – Elvestone Management Company from Budleigh Salterton , August 14, 2012
The recent completion by your company of the exterior redecoration of the 15 apartments, garages and other extensive areas of this development has been accomplished in a thoroughly professional and satisfactory manner. You and your staff are to be congratulated on the outstanding result which has been achieved over a period of some eight weeks, frequently interrupted by very unfavourable weather.
It is a pleasure to be able to record the admirable attitude and ability of your three decorators, to thank them once again for their efforts and their sensitive co-operation with our residents.
I would be happy to commend your company to other potential customers.
Julie Weaver from Whitton and Laing, Exeter , July 10, 2012
We act as managing agents for a large number of residential apartment buildings and estates in the South West and as such are responsible for organising maintenance and decorating contracts on an ongoing basis.
We have been working with Simon Santucci and his team for a number of years, during which time he has become one of our primary contractors – working on many prestigious and large developments, including a number of listed buildings, where the quality of workmanship and attention to detail is paramount.
Whilst on site any contractor is seen to be representing our own organisation and our experience of Simon and his team, together with feedback from our clients, has always been very positive, with Simon and his team being friendly, helpful and professional at all times.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Simon Santucci Decorators to your organisation for any future decorating or maintenance contracts.
I trust that this information is helpful to you, but please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any further information.

Whitton and Laing,
Jill B from Exmouth , July 3, 2012
Simon & his guys decorated our newly-acquired apartment throughout while we were out of the country. You’re always a bit anxious with tradespeople, but that certainly wasn’t the case with Simon. All work was carried out to a very high standard, for a reasonable cost. Simon is very pleasant to deal, and even came back at no charge to touch up a few marks left by the removers.
Don Baines, on behalf of the Retreat Management Company from Exmouth , June 21, 2012
Simon Santucci and Co Painters and Decorators have just completed their third contract with us, for decorations to the hallways of the building i.e. stairs, walls and doors etc. Previous contracts included external works.
The work was completed, on time and to a high and totally satisfactory standard. We are pleased due to the willingness of their team there was no inconvenience to the residents.
We are pleased to recommend them to you as a very professional company.
Ray B from Exmouth – letter addressed to Simon Santucci , February 19, 2012
We are very pleased and impressed by the quality of both service and work following the redecoration of our apartment. Your team were very professional in their approach, good at their job, and ensured that the end product reflected both their own high standards and a quality finish for ourselves as customer.
Not only that, given that they redecorated the whole apartment, they were very considerate and helpful in facilitating the movement of furniture etc, so that we were able to carry on living here quite comfortably during the work. Furthermore the team were very pleasant company and a pleasure to have working in one’s home, which is a very important element in our view.
T Reeve from East Budleigh , November 30, -1
Just a few lines following the recent completion of the exterior painting of our house.
I had anticipated that this would be quite stressful for us, but your staff made it a calm operation which was carried out at the agreed dates, within budget and with the minimum of disruption to our home life.
Always a good sign when staff arrive for an early start at 8 am and are willing to work through to get a job completed. They were polite, helpful and considerate (no loud radio playing!). They worked well as a team together. It was also nice to see that you yourself kept an eye on the progress of the work, which was most reassuring, and the two year guarantee on the labour and materials just goes the extra mile.
