More about James Price from ProGlos Decorating
James is the Founder and Owner of ProGlos Decorating in Cheltenham. He started out studying engineering in an apprenticeship but soon realised it was not right for him:
“From a young age I knew I wanted to be in the trade. When I was offered a painting & decorating apprenticeship I jumped at the chance and have enjoyed it ever since.”
Working for customers every day making their homes look beautiful is all well and good. But what does James have / like in his house:
“Smooth straight walls, ceilings and woodwork are important to me. Pale grey walls and white woodwork – I am loving ‘Blackened’ by Farrow and Ball at the moment.”
Looking back to his apprenticeship and then years later, in setting up in business, James knew he was passionate about his work:
“I wanted to do this my way and not feel restricted working for someone else. It was a natural progression for me to setup ProGlos Decorating.”
Both ‘James Price’ and ‘ProGlos Decorating’ are names that are getting well known in Cheltenham and the surrounding areas. James see this progressing well…
“My vision is to continue to grow my team and build the business so that we are even more well known in Cheltenham and be the “go to” company for residential and commercial decorating in Cheltenham.”
There are lots of Painters & Decorators in Cheltenham and it goes without saying that being professional and reliable should be top of every company’s list. But what makes you different?
“We get a lot of feedback about how friendly and helpful we are. Also that we clear up properly after each day. I approach each project with the same attitude.
I price it so that it is competitive regardless of the size of the job.
Satisfaction for both the customer and myself is a high priority.
Flexibility is important so that things are agreed. However not everything is set in stone as projects always change.”
The wider team at ProGlos Decorating is made up of experienced, valued decorators, carpenters and plasterers, many of whom have worked closely with James for many years.
Their combined experience is clear from their knowledge of working on new builds, commercial interior and exterior projects, whilst still being personable with domestic customers.
“I am biased but my team are excellent, trustworthy and professional. We spend a lot of time together at work and we make a great team.”
