Our Background

Bishop & Smith a painting and decorating company, was created by two childhood friends, Tom and Chris, who were tired of hearing stories of poor service and poor qualities of work. They constantly struggled to understand why people were paying for poor end results.

Tom, having worked in the painting and decorating industry for 15 years, had grown a large and loyal customer base through his attention to detail and his knowledge of the properties he had worked on; ranging from manor houses, to conversions. He also believes that the customer should not have to pay the earth to make their home look exactly how they want it to, so Chris helped to develop competitive pricing strategies which were favoured by his customers.

Chris has worked for two of the biggest telecommunications providers in the UK and has over 10 years experience in customer service; truly believing that everyone in the country has the right to a fair, honest and personal service. Having spent 7 years within the decorating industry & having worked on vast array of properties from period, through to new build, he too has developed impecible hands on skills, along with a vault of knowledge relating to products, new technologies and substrates.

After discussing the problems faced by customers looking for the quality service they deserved, they decided that it would be the right decision to combine their experience to create a company that can deliver their vision, and Bishop & Smith Ltd was born.

Providing excellent quality right the way through, with maximum focus on the customer journey and at a competitive price – Bishop & Smith has continued to grow their customer base and when asked how they can deliver such a service at the price they do, the answer is simple… ‘We run our business in the same way as we work with our customers and their properties, carefully and with attention to detail; meaning there are no unnecessary costs’

Chris & Tom are overjoyed and truly passionate simply to be providing a service they feel the public should receive as standard – delivered on time, every time, and always, with the client at the forefront.
