Our longest serving employee is Paul Trory who joined the company in October, 1975.
You might think that a painting and decorating firm does exactly what it says on the tin.
We like to think our heritage and the way we ply our trade makes us different from other firms.
Our customers come to us because they appreciate a high-quality, personal service from the moment they pick up the phone to the day the paint brushes are put away.
It gives us immense satisfaction to finish a job where everybody is smiling when they see the end result. Judging by the level of repeat business, we paint a lot of smiles!
Our team is packed with experience and can take on any job from a small room in someone’s home to large-scale jobs like painting bridges or office blocks.
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!
