About Us

Here at Paints & Ladders we pride ourselves on our friendliness and ability to understand that your home is your sanctuary

Paints & Ladders are a brother and sister team

It’s unusual, but it works! We have worked together for over 5 years now and have come to realise that we work well together because our values and outlook are the same… we have a high level of workmanship and want you to be proud to show off your home.

Ian & I (Nicola) have over 20 years’ experience between us and have found that, with the right products, there is no problem that can’t be fixed. We can get to those hard to reach places and hire scissor lifts, scaffolding, cranes etc when the need arises. We use quality products so that, not only does our work look good, but it stands the test of time too.


Efficient and friendly

We offer the full range of painting and decorating services, throughout Exeter and the surrounding areas. We provide a reliable and quality service at reasonable rates, delivered with a smile!

A female touch really does help… some people just like the presence of a female trades-person, others like to know that their home will be left that extra bit clean and tidy! In order to safeguard your property and belongings we will always cover your fixtures and fittings by laying down dust sheets and covering your furniture with polythene sheeting. We are fully covered by public liability insurance for extra peace of mind.


We also provide an interior design service

Where we can assist with colour matching, patterns and furniture arrangements to maximise the potential of your home.

Of course, we provide a free no obligation quotation service and will always respond to a call within 48 hours if we are unable to answer straight away. Our written quotations will always be provided within 1 week of seeing any required works and we do NOT take a deposit for most works. If your project is a little larger, we may ask for instalments, but this will be agreed in writing before commencement of any works.

We understand that communication is the key and will therefore keep you fully informed as to start dates and times and any equipment that needs to be delivered.

In addition to our own expertise, we have good working relationships with a variety of local trades. We are therefore able to provide additional building services such as plastering, tiling and joinery.
