Thank you to our clients for some of the great things you have said about us.

Darren went out of his way to fit in some work at my home last year. He knew exactly what was required, put in a lot of effort and did a good job. I was really pleased with the results and would use him again. Definitely recommended.

Darren is a busy man and much in demand, so we had to wait a few months for him to fit us in, but it was definitely worth waiting as the quality of the finish is outstanding and we couldn’t be happier.
We would recommend Darren to anyone looking for high-spec rendering or plastering works.

If your looking for a highly skilled, trustworthy, hard working plasterer then look no further. Darren and Cian were highly accommodating and efficient and just got the job done at a very reasonable and competitive price. Just exactly what I wanted. Thanks for your brilliant work in 3 of our bedrooms.

Fantastic work as ever from Darren and Cian. First tradesman we called when we got the keys to our new house. Ceilings skimmed upstairs and down, new doorway and a bit of render to patch up the hole left by the old boiler. Highly recommended.

Darren rendered the outside of my new build annex. I am absolutely delighted with the results! He worked quickly and with great attention to detail leaving a perfect finish, despite having to overcome some very questionable brickwork issues by my slap dash builders. Nothing was too much trouble! I have no hesitation in recommending Darren for his superior workmanship and unrivalled value for money! I will definitely be using him again for future projects.

Honestly wouldn’t know where to start! We have had our whole house either skimmed or re-plastered and ceilings replaced by Darren and Cian. From start to finish they were fantastic, our home now looks amazing and we found them to be very professional at all times.

I would highly recommend Darren Mitchell and Sons. Cian came to my house at very short notice and plastered my kitchen. He was professional, friendly and did an amazing job! Thank you so much!

From the organising of a quote to fitting the job into his schedule, Darren and his son have been excellent value. Their flexibility and ability to get the job done has helped deliver a high quality finish and has updated the look our sitting room has. It has also helped us minimise the disruption the work has on family life. Would definitely recommend to others and would look to call on Darren’s services again.

Darren recently plastered my hallway. He was quick and nothing was a problem.

Cannot fault - Best plasterer I have ever seen!
This was the first time we used Mitchell Plastering. We have previously renovated 4 houses and seen various ‘styles’ of plastering in the past, some bad but also one of which we thought could not be surpassed. However, Darren and his team provided a finish that had perfect edges and was so smooth no prep was required before painting. They worked quickly, precisely, asked for feedback and overcame problems on site in an extremely professional manner. They also made a point of cleaning up at the end of each day. We will not go anywhere else now. First rate!

Darren plastered my bedroom yesterday as I’d taken the picture rail down and it had taken lots of plaster off. When I’d got home from work I had a look and it’s fab! I can’t wait to have a newly decorated room with smooth walls! Very reasonably priced too!

We have a conservatory with a fishbowl ceiling and we’re very happy with the plastering done on it by Darren.

Darren did an excellent job plastering the bedroom walls as well as putting plasterboard on the ceiling and plastering that. The old plaster on the walls had blown and was in quite a state but is now looking smooth and ready to paint. We would have no hesitation in using Darren again and can thoroughly recommend his work.

Very happy with rendering work completed. Very reliable and on time. Left work site clean and tidy.

Thank you so much for the amazing work you did on our house. I had no idea about what to expect when I decided to get my house re-rendered. You explained everything really well and we are so pleased with the end result. I would definitely recommend you to my friends. I would be happy for people to see your amazing work.

Darren agreed to take on plastering job for me that I needed doing quickly so that I could get radiators back up before the cold weather came. He very kindly fitted the job in the very next week and conscientiously got on with doing a very neat, professional job in just two days. Darren has done a perfect job which cannot have been simple as the walls of my hundred year old cottage are not as square and true as one might expect. He is quick, tidy and reasonable. I am thoroughly impressed and will have him back to finish of a number of other projects around the house.

We had our house externally rendered and plastered by Darren. We hadn’t anticipated having to strip off so much render but our house had a multitude of damp issues. He stripped off 5 layers of render (including concrete) and reinstated an outer surface with breathable lime render which took the outside back to its original surface. We’ve had lots of comments about how good it looks and we have fewer damp problems and feel quite a lot healthier.

Darren always responds really promptly to enquiries, coming swiftly round to give reliable quotes and making every effort to fit in the work speedily around his existing busy schedule. He arrives on time, works quickly and neatly to an excellent finish, tidying up afterwards. I heartily recommend him to others and would definitely employ him again.

I have known Darren for a number of years and had no hesitation in asking him to manage my bathroom refurbishment. The room required a complete overhaul and restructuring, which was carried out with skill and precision from start to finish. The result is a modern spacious room which is built to last. The quality of the work is impressive but I particularly liked the conscientious way in which it was managed. It’s all about the customer at the end of the day and I will certainly be asking Darren to complete any further home improvements in the future.

Just wanted to say what a perfect job you made plastering the bedroom ceiling. Gary has painted it now and he reckons it’s the best ceiling in the house. There wasn’t any imperfections on it at all. Thank you again for doing a brilliant job.
