RAINBOW PAINTERS - Making Dreams Come True!

I established the business in 2005, working by myself, but within 7 months had to take a person on to keep up with demand. I am pleased to say that progress has been steady and we have been able to take on larger projects as time has passed and the team has grown in size and ability. 2009 was a watershed year when we successfully started working with 2 large letting agent clients and achieved a number of accreditations including Dulux Select Decorator, Trading Standards Buy With Confidence and Investors in People, in recognition of our commitment to training and development. These achievements were sealed when Daniel won Apprentice of the Year for the South East of England and the business won the national award for Employer of the Year (in the microbiz sector). Please feel free to view the publicity concerning this via the link on the Home Page.


At the suggestion of a customer, the name Rainbow Painters arose from the logo and we decided to use the name for the Website. A bit snappier than Russell Marlow Painting and Decorating, but it is one and the same entity.

On this Website, courtesy of some of our customers, you can have a look at some of the schemes that we have produced. We cannot take credit for the colour schemes, but our views are often sought and I have been delighted to contribute to the development of ideas or to provide reassurance about the way forward. We can certainly help with the selection process, providing colour charts and samples and wallpaper books. Above all, we are customer led and seek to turn your dreams and ideas into reality.

The team of Heather, Daniel, Michael, Jemma, Liam, Andrew and myself are shown here next to our van. The van enables us to transport all of our materials and equipment easily to site, all over West Sussex and beyond. We have excellent support from our Suppliers, which gives us additional flexibility. We are a young, well organized, hard working, flexible team able to make rapid progress with jobs in our areas of expertise.

Our services can be summarised as follows:

Free Visits - written Quotations and honest assessments.

Preparation and Painting of all surfaces - wood, plaster, paper, plastic, metal, masonry, flooring, brick, tile, uPVC, both inside and out. We also do staining, varnishing and waxing of wood.

Wallpapering - ceilings, walls, stairways.

Problem Solving - efflorescence, water damage, stains, smoke damage, sticky surfaces, inaccessible places, boxing in pipes, reinstatement of surfaces, patch plastering, rot damage, mould, other small repairs, insurance work.

Introduction to other trades - we have access to additional services and trades through our established network of local professional tradesmen and related businesses. Please see our Links page for this information. Feel free to use this resource and contact the businesses direct.

We use only high quality materials, selected as the best, in our experience, for each application. We use Dulux Trade, Sikkens, Sadolin, Solignum, Blackfriar, Zinsser, Liberon, Dulux Trade Weathershield and Toupret paints, woodstains, varnishes, waxes and fillers and other excellent trade products to achieve first class and durable finishes.

Our choice of products and methods of work are also determined by environmental considerations to minimise impact. All trade waste is disposed of correctly. We know that it is important to take care of our customers property and possessions and we use a variety of techniques to ensure the risk of damage is minimised.

We have an established training programme for all employees who are all required to undertake a full Apprenticeship Programme leading to a Level 2 Qualification. Daniel has already completed this level and together with Heather is working towards NVQ Level 3. Michael is a full time Apprentice, having joined the business straight from school. Jemma, Liam and Andrew are part time and Andrew (my son) will be commencing an Apprenticeship in Carpentry on completion of 6th Form College in 2010 to add skills to the business, whilst working as a carpenter with another local business.

Heather, Daniel and Michael are full time employees, properly registered for PAYE purposes. The business carries £10m of Employers Liability and £5m of Public Liability cover. We are registered under the Construction Industry Scheme as a sub contractor. We have been vetted and approved by West Sussex Trading Standards for membership of their Buy with Confidence scheme and have been vetted and approved by ICI Dulux and are members of their Dulux Select Decorator panel.

The business is not registered for VAT purposes as turnover is planned to remain below the mandatory limit. This is a big benefit for our private customers.

We hope this overview provides reassurance that Rainbow Painters is a professional operation, capable of handling a variety of projects. Please see our Testimonials page for some comments that we have been delighted to receive from our customers.
