Don’t just take our word for it, see what our customers are saying about us!

We had a requirement for a range of paints – Indoor and Outdoor on a variety of surfaces and range of colours. We decided to use PDI Paints and without doubt this was an excellent decision. They firstly came over to survey the job and recommend suitable paints. They provided competitive prices and ongoing support during the 8 weeks of painting on the project. All their staff were helpful and friendly and their service was second to none, at time delivering paint within hours of placing an order. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I have been dealing with PDI for about 15 years and have always been impressed by their service, knowledge and awareness of their customers’ needs. They have a vast range of products at their disposal and are able to give specifications whether it may be of a decorative or industrial nature. They have an exceptional delivery service and I know that if we place an order by 10.00 a.m. we will receive our goods that day.
