About us2018-10-18T11:37:03+00:00

My name is Michael ‘Mick’ to many.  Having served my time with a local building and decorating firm in Haddenham it was always my ambition and desire to run my own painting and decorating business. In 1979 when I was just 19 years old I braved it and took the plunge.

Fast forward to present day and the business now has a team of 6 (7 inc. Kay), who are trained not only to be professionally qualified painters and decorators, but to be friendly and respectful and to take care of our clients homes.

Simmonds is a family business – my wife Kay is responsible for administration, accounts and running the office, my brother Graham is a skilled carpenter, associate partner and contract supervisor, along with my son Matthew.

We take on people as school leavers and train them up to our way of thinking. All our team members have served 3 year apprenticeships with us gaining various qualifications – full City & Guilds, NVQ, CITB (Construction Industry Training Boards). We are also health and safety conscious having attended a number of courses. Our staff have undergone CRB (Criminal Record Bureau) checks, to fall in-line with the Hampshire County Council ‘Buy with confidence’ scheme.
