Painter and Decorator in Kent.

Before & After Painting Company is based in Sittingbourne in Kent.
The business was founded by Tim Peters (a third generation painter & decorator – my Grandad, Dad and myself).

I was venturing into a painting & decorating career even before leaving school when I worked with my Dad on some decorating jobs during the school holidays. He sub-contracted to the newly formed David Hartnup Ltd. My Dad helped them get off the ground, sometimes working 48+ hours non stop to help them fulfill the many contracts they began winning.

Thanks to my Dad, I began my time with David Hartnup Ltd in 1983. But within two years of me starting my time on Hartnup’s, my Dad decided to start his own decorating business which was strong for twelve years until he fell ill. I worked within his business too when time allowed.
I have to say, Hartnup’s was a fantastic company to sub-contract too, even though it got frustrating at times. Finally in 2000, we parted company.

I was about to start my own painting business in 2000, but I began sub-contracting to a small local paint contractor up until 2003. It was in that year that I had the fire in my belly to start up my own business and 11 years on Before & After Painting is still going strong.
Since establishing Before & After Painting in 2003, I have been decorating interiors and painting exteriors of properties in the Kent, Sussex and London areas.

Before & After Painting aims to produce work to a high standard, is very reliable and trustworthy and shows the utmost respect to its clients/customers and the property being worked on. We want your custom and repeat business, so it is in our interest to provide you with what you want.
