About us

Established in 1985, Montgomery-Coates Ltd is one of the leading painting and decorating contractors based in the South West. Having successfully grown from a 2 man core management team to currently employing 17 fully qualified tradesmen comprised of painters and decorators, plumbers, electricians and shopfitters.

Whether operating on a local or national basis, all manner of projects are considered from working on private clients homes to completing Listed Building works for churches or historical buildings, new builds, refurbishments and fit out projects for leading regional and national construction companies.

Over the years we have been fortunate enough to develop long standing relationships with our commercial clients, such as Morgan Sindall, Kier Construction, Bestseller, Skinner Construction Ltd and Bonhay & Eagle.

Using the best materials and the most effective decorating techniques, our experienced painters can transform any area of your home or commercial property.  We work extensively throughout both the commercial and domestic sectors – always providing services of the very highest quality in every project that we complete.

Detailed surface preparation ensures a good, long lasting finish.  All surfaces will be thoroughly prepared by our tradesmen prior to painting.  We will do our best to minimise any disruption to your day to day life and will be considerate towards your neighbours and local community.


We provide first class expertise and experience in a range of construction related skills to service relationships tailored to our clients requirements, and are able to offer these services across Retail, Leisure, Bar, Hotel and Office sectors.

We welcome the opportunity of tendering for projects on either a site visit, specification and drawing or a bill of quantities basis.
