Tradition and innovation

We are a contemporary, commercial painting company with deep roots. Ian Metcalf created the company in 1989 as a sole trader, and we became a limited company in 2001. We remain a family firm who pride ourselves on keeping our friendly approach alongside the highest levels of professional integrity. However we are now a large workforce with the capacity and resource to complete all from high end city refurbishments to bespoke listed buildings.




We remain versatile and span the range of services in the industry. Whether you are looking for a total refurbishment of your city office block, or an accomplished craftsman for your listed building, we can provide it promptly.



We will give you the correct materials and the technical knowledge you should expect.  With Metcalf you receive a service delivered from a workforce cultivated over time, trained in all aspects of decorating, and ready to strengthen your success.



We are constantly investing in our staff and operate a full apprenticeship scheme. We can supply you with a professional, reliable, vetted, CSCS compliant labour force who are backed up by our infrastructure of support staff.


We are based in Northamptonshire, and our central location is an advantage for many clients. However we operate throughout the UK in numerous locations particularly in the London area.



Park Royal Offices, London. Our task? An interior and exterior refurbishment of the entire building.



Baden Place, London. Here our client requests a full renovation.



The offices are transformed. Contemporary, strong, and ready for occupation.



The building is restored. Fully modernised, with reclaimed London bricks retaining its heritage.
