We like to think our heritage and the way we ply our trade makes us different from other firms. We apply our high-quality, personal service to all of our customers from large commercial or building contracts to domestic decoration for the homes of our customers. Read more about our history and our team.

Our History

We are a fourth-generation, family-owned business with our roots firmly in the city of Hull and a great reputation that stretches far and wide.

The business was founded in 1918 by Charlie Pittaway, who started on his own with next to nothing except a tremendous will to succeed.

His son James joined the business in the 1940s, followed by his grandson Melvyn in the 1960s and his great grandson and current Managing Director Graeme in the 1990s.

We’ve come a long way since 1914. We think Charlie would be very proud!

The Team

We are a family firm that takes great pride in our work.

All our tradesmen are professionally trained and have all the relevant accreditations to deliver a quality, professional service in a safe and timely manner.

Our team are not afraid of hard graft. They are tidy, conscientious and considerate and packed with experience and enthusiasm from the back office to the guys who go out on site.
