About Mark Wrighton

I started painting and decorating as soon as I left school at the age of 17. I was trained by a local company in Teynham Kent learning the basics of knotting and priming through to hanging luxurious wallpapers.

It took 3 years to become a qualified painter and decorator. I then moved on to housing developments where I would be left to decorate houses on my own both interior and exterior.

In 1997 I was asked to become a supervisor so I came off the tools and undertook the management of 50 decorators ensuring that the decorators were consistently working  to a high standard.

In 2001, I left the company to start my own company. My client database rapidly expanded and at the company’s peak I employed some 30 decorators working across domestic properties and new build for major housing developers.

This continued to 2013 when I took the decision to downsize, return to my roots, and work alone for domestic clients.

In 2014 I was assessed and accredited by Dulux to become one of their small number of Select Decorators

Many of my clients have been with me for 10 years or more.
