The journey of Derwent Painting Services began when Mark Morgan started painting in 2006. His passion stayed with him as he went to college, and started working hands on, at the age of 16. In his third year, he was promoted to the position of assistant manager to a nationwide contractor who carried out painting and repair work to Railway stations, hotels and various other Commercial projects.

In 2009, he was made redundant, but his passion for his work and his commitment to creating his own business drove him towards entrepreneurship. Three years of apprenticeship had equipped him with the skills to become a top-grade professional. He went to the Princes Trust in Derby, completed his course there, and got his funding to start Derwent Painting Services.

And in these few years, Derwent Painting Services has built on its core strengths to become one of the most sought-after painting service providers. We work only using the finest brands.

Fantastic experience with Derwent Painting Services from the initial quote to snagging (which was minimal). We approached 3 individual companies for a quote and went with Mark as his prices were very competitive and he actually clearly explained what work would be completed.Mark and his team were very professional, and completed all works to a very high standard which we are very happy with! The team was very friendly and communicated really well throughout.As an organisation planning to open from the 28th June, we had a very quick turn around, however the team made it happen and our building was refreshed in time of our opening post-lockdown.Will certainly be booking them for future works in the new year.Thanks DPS! :)Fantastic experience with Derwent Painting Services from the initial quote to snagging (which was minimal).

I would highly recommend Mark. Really pleased with the communication prior to and during the work he did for us. The whole cottage was prepped and decorated to a great standard which has really transformed it. Considering the amount of work involved and quality of finish the amount we paid was very good value, Thanks Mark

The team painted our holiday apartments in Ashbourne. It was a big job and difficult, because of the age of the building and the poor quality of the surfaces, which needed a lot of repairs before they could be painted. Derwent Decorators did an excellent job, were very tidy, on time and on budget.

This is the first time we Have used Derwent Painting Services. The hall stairs and landing were redecorated including all woodwork. We had very good advice on paint products from Mark. Using his sanding equipment meant there was very little dust raised during this job. He carried out the work very efficiently and tidily and we are very happy with the results. We will ask him back to do more redecorating in the future.

Mark quoted us a very competitive price for redecorating a bedroom and bathroom but the job was actually done by his assistant, Branon. The work was completed quickly, tidily and to a high standard. We would happily recommend Derwent Painting Services.

Really appreciate the work Mark did for us painting the Soffits and Fascias on the outside of our house. He kept us informed of when he would be with us especially given that the work required good weather. The house now looks really special and would not hesitate to use Mark again.

DPS painted the outside of our house which was large project including mock Tudor panelling, sash windows and spray painting render. They provided a competitive and excellent service from the point of providing a quotation through to completing the works. The standard of workmanship was very good, the area was left clean and tidy on completion. I was kept fully informed throughout, DPS returned to complete minor snags promptly. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending DPS

Mark carries out any job to the highest standard and always provides advises on the best products to use etc. I would highly recommend Mark/Derwent Painting Services and look forward to working with him on future projects! Thank you!

I was a Director of the Management Company and a leaseholder of one of the 32 residential flats. The entire process from initial contact, multiple on site assessment visits pre quote, quoting and the entire paint works was perfect. Many other leaseholders have taken the time to compliment both Mark and Dave on the quality of the work. Mark also proposed the use of a specialist nautical metal paint due to the exposure of our balconies - which so far has been far better than paints used on early renovations. I have recommended we use Derwent Painting Services for our internal redecoration

Mark and his team made an extremely professional job of painting the rendered portion of our house. They took great care in masking up. And also were very considerate of our Neighbours.The whole job was completed in 1 week, and it is a fairly large area, I was impressed with the speed at which it was done. Definitely would recommend them! I had several quotes, and this one was very competitive.
