"I am delighted with the skilled job Simon did installing cornice and a ceiling rose (each of his own design) in my Victorian sitting room. Simon is a true craftsman with impeccable attention to detail - the design is completely suited to the room and every corner is perfect. Simon also offers a really professional service. He arrived on time and completed the job within a day, leaving the room immaculate. Having had an amateur job done in another room previously, I only wish I had found him sooner."

  "My wife and I had been putting off repairing our old Victorian coving for years, largely because we'd been told it was a lengthy and expensive job. Simon made it seem very straightforward. He gave a very reasonable quote, booked us in quickly, and did a great job in just one day, leaving no sign he'd ever been there. Now we can't tell the replacement section from the original. I'd definitely recommend him to others in the same situation."

Julian - Beckenham BR3


  "Simon has installed traditional cornice in two of our rooms, each requiring a number of complicated mitres. On both occasions he did a fantastic job and clearly takes a very real pride in the quality of his work - his attention to detail was second to none. I would happily recommend him and will use him again if we ever have future cornice needs."

"We have been lucky to have found Simon… his work is of the highest standard on cornices. The new cornices are beautifully and cleanly executed, and his repairs to existing ones cannot be faulted. He advised us wisely on our cornices. It is a pleasure to admire his work and to recommend Simon!"

  "The Corniceman seamlessly restored badly damaged cornicing plasterwork in our Edwardian house.  We are delighted in his craftsmanship and our beautiful rooms".

Marilyn & Tony - Surrey, KT10



  "Tradesman of this calibre are few and far between.  From the initial consultation and estimate to manufacture, delivery and installation, The Corniceman (Simon Grieve) provides a traditional. fibrous plasterwork service of the highest quality.   It is hard to imagine craftsmanship that could be better: we are absolutely delighted with the results."

Ollie & Joe - East Dulwich, SE22



"Simon Grieve, the Cornice Man, is a real expert in his field, he made real useful suggestions and gave us good and practical advice.  He skilfully transformed our very dull through-lounge ceiling into an absolute work of art in 3 days.  The room is so beautiful now.  Simon's price was very realistic, I think that we'd be hard pushed to get that standard of work done for that price anywhere else.  He was punctual and well mannered and we didn't even have to make endless cups of tea or coffee.  He happily encouraged us to go in and check progress at regular intervals.  We would definitely recommend him to our family and friends.

It's now six weeks later and we are still admiring his work!"

Lance & Jenny, SE6


"It's my pleasure to recommend Simon Grieve.  Simon did exactly what he said he was going to do, when he said he would do it and at the price that he quoted.  He was always professional, straightforward, easy to deal with and flexible.  He worked well with all the other tradesmen working in the house.  He is a  trustworthy and pleasant young man.

Our project was the renovation and extension of a large Edwardian house.  We were concerned that the cornice would be in keeping with the period of the property and Simon designed a cornice with which we are extremely happy. His advice on size and detail was excellent.  He gave us as much time as we needed during the design stage.

Simon put the cornicing up in virtually every room in the house, up the stairway, hallways and all around a galleried landing.  The cornicing goes around all our new built in cupboards making them look original.  The cornicing, with all its many mitres, looks perfect.

Simon takes pride in his work and has a great eye for detail.  What more can I say.  It finishes the house beautifully."
