Older Testimonials

Borthwick Decorators carried out the refurbishment of all external woodwork at Dunblane New Golf Club. This work was carried out to a high standard in double quick time. It was also carried out with no disruption to our business or inconvenience to our membership. Thanks to David and his team from all at the Club.

Mr R McLuckie (Club Manager) - Dunblane New Golf Club

Thank you very much for the excellent work your team did when painting the exterior of our house and garage including the windows and doors. The painters always arrived early, were very courteous and did a great job. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company to others.

Mr & Mrs Draper

David & his team have recently carried out external decoration work on our new property in Edinburgh. From start to finish David was efficient, reliable & delivered the job on his original quotation. The quality of workmanship was excellent too & finished to a very high standard. I would have no hesitation recommending Borthwick decorators, who were a pleasure to deal with.

Mr K. Brown

David repainted our hand-painted kitchen which was looking a little tired after 16 years. We are glad we took his advice on the type of paints to use. He provided an excellent service and provided us with samples to help us decide on the colour scheme. He completed the work whist we were away on holiday and we were delighted with the result when we returned. We highly recommend Borthwick Decorators!

"As the owner of a Scottish C (conservation area) listed 100+ year old property, I engaged David Borthwick & Son Ltd to remove an old kitchen and bathroom, slap through from kitchen to dining room, fit a new kitchen and extensively decorate throughout the house. I found David to be highly professional and caring of our needs, with the result that we feel that our dream home has now been realised. Modernising this old property was of course not without its snags, but David's experience, sound advice and expertise ensured that the project was completed to a very high standard and to our budget. Throughout the project, David supervised his team closely, consulted with us regularly and remained cheerfully flexible. We always felt that he had placed us (the customer) first and that he was passionate in doing his best for us. Personally, I find these qualities of workmanship and customer focus to be worthy of the highest praise, so I will certainly be calling on his services again. And a big thanks from us!

Mr and Mrs Sibeth

It was a pleasure dealing with David Borthwick and Son from start to finish. Their professionalism and attention to detail was exceptional!

Mr and Mrs Blair

I could not recommend David and his team more. They took on the monumental task of Painting my kitchen cupboards in farrow and ball as well as all the walls and woodwork. They also painted my hall and stairs, snug and family room. The paintwork is of a very high standard and they were organised and thorough and cleaned up after themselves daily and thoroughly at the end of the job. David managed the project with a keen eye to detail and his men were delightful. They are not the cheapest around but you get what you pay for - great quality and service.

Mrs Williamson

I used David Borthwick & Son Ltd to repaint the frontage of our shop. The job they did was top quality with time taken in the preparation to make sure the finish was perfect. We've had a lot of great feedback from customers saying how good it looks. Massive thanks to David and his team. I'll certainly be recommending them to my friends and colleagues.

Dr D Duncan

I was very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of David Borthwick and Son. Especially their willingness to go the extra mile to complete the job within a very tight time frame!

Mr C Menichetti

With a 200 year old house requiring extensive exterior Painting across all the woodwork/eaves/gutters & downpipes, the issue was whom to employ to carry out the job both professionally and in a timely manner. David Borthwick impressed me straight away by arriving on time to carry out a free quotation. I was pleased to see vehicles that were clean, tidy & didn’t leak fluids onto my driveway. We discussed the best types of coatings that would be resilient & hopefully long lasting as the property is exposed to the coast, and gets blasted with the prevailing sea breezes. Of primary concern to me was to have a team of professionals who could carry out the work within a week or so, obviously dependent on the weather. David assured me that he could put between 3 and 6 men on the job and that it would be done quickly. After receiving his quote and accepting it, we agreed on a start date and on that date the job started. There was care to keep the area tidy, and everything was cleaned up at the end of each day. The preparation and paintwork was carried out with expertise and I am delighted with the overall finish & quality. I have no hesitation in recommending DB & Son Ltd and he now joins my team of professionals to call on for future work."

Mr M Wares

"I have used David Borthwick now for many years and find him most courteous and efficient. The jobs that he has done around our house are examples of quality professionalism and worthy of note, he also built our large wooden garage which is a superb building of which we are proud. You cannot go wrong in specifying their work at reasonable prices." Mr M Archibald

Mr M Archibald

"Our paint job was small but from the outset we felt that our custom was valued. A date was agreed and that’s when the work was done. A good price, good work and no hassle. They do what they say on the tin! Borthwick Decorators will be doing all our decorating in future."

Mr K Russell

"We have been using David Borthwick and Son for about 5 years now and we have to say they have been a pleasure to have around during our decorating works. They are always polite and courteous and manage to keep our house clean while they work, especially at the end of each day!" Mr and Mrs Wallace

Mr and Mrs Wallace

Thank you for an excellent job on the Painting of our bedroom. Your quick responses to my questions through calls and emails were much appreciated and the work was done swiftly and with care. I wouldn't hesitate in calling you for more work in the future and recommending you to others.

Ms Rachel H

Borthwick Decorators were recommended to us last summer and having employed them we were not disappointed. Our office, which is a 200 year old house, was in need of external painter works (windows, gutters and downpipes) and having asked David to quote, found him very reasonable. David is courteous, professional and customer friendly. We discussed the best type of paint to be used and the finishes required. I found David to be extremely knowledgeable about the products, existing and new on the market, and was happy to take his advice. He communicated well and kept us informed of workload and timescale. David is easy to speak with and very happy to help. His attention to detail on finishes and ‘can do’ attitude is refreshing. Whilst the work was weather dependant there were 6 to 8 painters on site and they did a lovely job. The gardens and car park area were kept tidy and everything was cleaned up at the end of each day. Our office looks stunning and has been commented on by our Clients. I have used Borthwick Decorators since then and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
