Unfailingly dedicated expert care
I am very aware that John and his splendid team take on very
big and complex project work for major clients including a number of the
Cambridge Colleges. That makes it all the more remarkable and wonderful
that when it comes to maintenance and upgrade work on my small Victorian city-centre house, I receive such unfailingly dedicated care from the firm's array of experts. For over 15 years now I have been delighted with every job they have done for me, both big and small - everything from interior and exterior painting and decorating to electrical work and even installation of a new cooker. Super-reliable; super-careful; trustworthy, courteous and caring. Recommended in the warmest terms, and unreservedly.

John and his team have completely transformed the look of our house
The advice on colour for the exterior paint and the professional approach including tidying afterwards has been exceptional. We couldn't have wished for a better outcome. Very highly recommend and wouldn't hesitate to use again. SW, S Cambs
This is a wonderful company
I'm so grateful for really excellent work - beautiful
quality, detail, finish - and great help with design ideas and decisions. John
Halbert takes care to understand the style and living needs of individual clients
and is incredibly thoughtful and helpful. His company have done the smallest things
when I've needed them and yet also managed much bigger projects. As a woman living
alone this has also seemed even more valuable and helpful to me. I can't recommend
the company highly enough. E, Cambridge

On time, on budget...everytime!
As a Cambridge university college it is imperative that we have contractors that carry out work to the highest standards, without fuss and to budget. John and his team are hard working, reliable, courteous and meet our high standards. We have used them for many years and without doubt we can see ourselves using them for many more.

Sitting room redecoration
Thank you for an excellent job.

Very professional firm with excellent standards
We recently employed J Halbert Ltd to do some external decorating on our converted barn near Cambridge. The service they provided was at all times very professional and the standard of workmanship was first class. The decorator was punctual, courteous and worked cheerfully to resolve any minor problems that occurred. He had a refreshing 'the customer is always right' approach and a real commitment to ensuring that the job was completed to our satisfaction. There may be other cheaper decorators out there but we doubt that the quality of their work would come near the level we experienced. We would have no hesitation in recommending this firm to others and will certainly go back to them in future.

House decoration in Bottisham
John and his team, especially, Dave, did a great job decorating the exterior of our converted barn home and our main bathroom. They gave us excellent advice, worked efficiently and tidily, and left the house looking splendid. And were very pleasant to deal with as well.
