Ann and Kev.     Thanks for a great job done redecorating our Lounge and Dining rooms.
       Efficient friendly service. Just what you want when living in and around the work being done at home. A very nice eye for a quality finish.      Booked in for some more work to be done as soon as workload allows.
  Great banter and looking forward to the next project. 

"I would like to thank you and your team for an outstanding job of decorating my entire property. From start to finish you have made the whole process issue free, from my first dealings all the way to the final completion your professionalism has been impeccable. Kev dealt with my initial quote swiftly which was very reasonable, followed by leaving keys for the girls to do their work. The whole team came across as friendly, honest and trustworthy. I have had a mixture of paper and painting throughout the whole house and even a trolls mural in a kids bedroom all has been carried out to a very high standard. Once again many thanks for all your hard work, I shall not hesitate in using you in future and shall recommend you to anybody needing work done."
Many Thanks

Dear Ann, Kev and your team of wonder decorators


You have just completed a brilliant job for us doing the whole of a property that was challenging at times, as it is a Grade II listed building. Your manor and approachability was amazing from the start to the finish of the project and when extras were added to the job you were always accommodating. High standard of finish and would without question call on your services again but also recommend you to everyone we know.

Helen and Claire Bailgate Lincoln

I recently asked Kev to decorate my hallway, landing and two fitted wardrobes. His team were simply excellent, very efficient and worked clean at all times. I can honestly say that Kev and his team couldn't be more accommodating with regards to changes to the scope of works and availability. A hassle free experience with a top notch finish. 

I will certainly be using them again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to friends and family.

Christina and I employed Kevin and Ann to carry out all the painting and decorating services on our refurbished grade 2 listed property in the Bail Gate, Cathedral Quarter Lincoln. The property, a Guest House, consists of 7 bedrooms, lounge, breakfast room, kitchen and ancillary areas.
Kevin and Anne were very professional in their approach to understanding the project requirements of a refurbishment of such an old building, adding their ideas and expertise to the project.
They worked in with other trades and were very flexible to moving around the building sometimes on a daily basis as and when required. The works were completed on time, to a very high standard and at a very competative price and we would gladly recommend them both on private and commercial projects. Thanks Kev and Ann Great Job.

Ann and Kev are the best decorators I have used. Great quality and real attention to detail. The finished work is exceptional and we are very pleased.
Ann did a great job repairing the walls and painting 3 rooms in our new apartment, she was efficient and always let everything in order.
They were on time, did a great job, were very friendly would definitely definitely use them again for future work very happy!...

Carole Van Hoffelen

Just a short note of thanks for the work done recently.
As always it was carried out in a professional manner with all agreements being honoured (which doesn't seem to happen with all tradesmen nowadays!).
Your comments and advice about the property and condition are always honest and much appreciated, it's almost as if it was your own property and you want what's best for it.
Your advice and "can do" attitude are always a great help aswell as your understanding of the time constraints associated with renting properties.
I would certainly not be looking elsewhere for my decorating needs.
Norman Sutton properties owner

Kev and team,

A big thank you for a job well done. As usual you and your team have done an excellent job, on time within budget and to your usual excellent standard.

Good to find a tradesman who can both undertake the job and manage it in my absence.

I would have no problem recommending you to any prospective clients and l will of course continue to use your company for all my refurbishment projects.

kind regards and thanks to the team

I have known and use Kev’s services for over 8 years. As the owner of a reasonably sized portfolio of properties spread across the midlands and Yorkshire, I have kept Kev pretty busy over the majority of that time. He has provided what amounts to a full property maintenance service for me – to the extent that as soon as one of my properties becomes vacant, Kev checks out all aspects of the place and advises me on the works required to get it looking its best and to minimize any void period – and I trust his opinion over any of the Letting Agents I have used over the years. His prices are without competition, his professionalism is unequalled and his reliability beyond reproach. The manner in which Kev represents me to my tenants is faultless, and his approach to dealing with issues and problems is first rate.

  • I recommend Kev to all of the property and portfolio owners I know, and I would not put my professional and personal reputation on the line lightly. I originally found Kev from the Yellow Pages as I was new to the area at the time. I was very lucky to have struck gold and am glad to be able to offer some advice so that you don’t need to take that same risk – read all of these testimonials on this website and accept the fact that your property could not be in safer hands.

    Jason Wells – Portfolio Owner

  • I have employed Kev Hackney as decorator for my rented house in Lincoln on several occasions since he was recommended to me by a property management agent in 2009. On each occasion his decorating has been of a very high standard, completing each job in good time and providing excellent value for money. Furthermore, I have used Kev for a number of other household maintenance jobs for which he has constantly provided me with excellent advice and arranged for specialist workmen to carry out jobs when he believes it to be necessary; each time, he ensures the work is completed expeditiously and always at a reasonable price. The most important quality that Kev possesses is his reliability. He has never once let me down; always ensures that my property is left clean and tidy after each job; and he has even worked in the evening and on weekends to complete jobs at late notice. Kev is a top bloke and I would recommend Kev to anyone who is after a painter and decorator who offers an excellent service at a fantastic price. Moreover, I would also recommend him as an excellent ‘broker’ for any household maintenance job – if he can’t do it himself, then he’ll know someone who can, and will make sure the jobs are completed efficiently and to a high standard.

    If I could sum Kev up with one anecdote then it is this:

    When away on business last summer, I got talking to someone who rents a number of properties in Lincoln. We spent about half an hour chatting about each other’s experiences and began recommending to each other an excellent painter and decorator, who was also able to manage general household maintenance issues. After a while, it became apparent that we were both on about the same guy Kev Hackney

    Dear Kev,

    Many thanks for the excellent work you did in painting the exterior woodwork on our house and garage.  Your quotation was very competitive and the work was carried out in good time to a very high standard.  We would have no hesitation in employing you again and would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends and neighbours.
    Michael & Susan H,

    “We were very impressed with the work rate, professionalism and friendliness of this company.  Not only were they fast, they were very reasonably priced.  We have used them several times in the last year and found their work to be of a good standard.  We certainly intend to use them again.  They provide exceptionally good service and value for money.”  - Mr & Mrs Laming

     We used K S Hackney Decorating to decorate our new office prior to occupation, they were an efficient and friendly outfit that provided a free competitive quote, there work was completed to a good standard and on time. We would use them again.’

    Sue Wells I can recommend Kev wholeheartedly!

     Richard Booth kev came all the way to totally decorate my house in ORKNEY, first class work, excellent guy to be around, not to mention the fun we had great memories.
    would recommend him for any job, even if i need my house redecorating again, i would not hessitate to get his team back in.
    Hi Kev and Ann
    Thank you so much for the wonderful job that you have done for us here. It was completed in super quick time with little fuss and disruption. Also, we did have a laugh!

    What our customers say:
    We have been joint owners of a small private property lettings business in Lincoln for some 11 years

    As we live over 90 miles away we initially struggled to keep up with the decorating needs of the properties and undertake small remedial works ourselves.

    In the first few years we worked with various decorators but unfortunately although some of these were good we did not find them consistent / always able to meet either our standards or our deadlines meaning we were continually trying new tradesmen.

    This is how we started to use the services of Kevin and Anne some 6 years ago initially for small decorating works but quickly progressing to Kevin and Ann taking on all internal and external decorating works for us on our Lincoln properties.

    Over the years it has been a pleasure to work with Kevin and Ann and everyone in their family business as they still hold on to the ideal of providing a competitive service in a trustworthy, reliable, and courteous manner.

    Being cheerful and willing and amongst the rare breed of tradesmen who clean up after themselves everyone in the team is always a pleasure to work with.

    Not only are Kevin and Ann capable of making their own working arrangements and organising and keeping to tight work programmes to ensure that our deadlines are met but also they work well with other tradesmen, are happy to do large and small jobs alike and are willing to go more than the ‘extra mile’ to meet our satisfaction.

    Kevin and Ann have never let us down so we now count them and their team amongst our personal friends and feel confident they will not take advantage of this.

    In short, Kevin, Ann and their team will continue to get all our decorating work in Lincoln while ever they want it and continue to deliver their ‘Special Brand of Quality Service’.
