About Us

I have worked with Carella Coatings for several years now on projects ranging from £100,000 up to £1.7m and have always found them to be professional. Their can-do attitude towards all work undertaken is second to none. I have always found the quality of their work to be fantastic and carried out with a degree of enthusiasm that surpass any other decorating firms used in the past. All of their men have integrated into my on-site team seamlessly, and are often the first guys on site, and last to leave at night. They really are the perfect subcontractor in every way which makes them my decorator of choice time and time again.

George CrightonSite Manager, Pacific Building Ltd

I have worked with Carella Coatings on a number of projects now and they are hassle-free, high class finishers. They are a joy to have on site as they treat H&S to the same extent as the project team and they have always delivered on time, regardless of additions to the contract or unforeseen circumstances. They come back with solutions time after time. Communication is key for me and it works both ways. I felt I have had that with Carella since our first time on site and it continually grows. This for me has gave us the platform to deliver the project to the Client.

Gerry BonhamSite Manager, Worksmart Contracts

I have worked with Carella Coatings on numerous projects throughout the campus with one of our most prestigious clients at the University of Glasgow. One project in particular is one where the coffer ceiling was to be used as a decorative feature exposed with hanging ceiling rafts. Carella used their expertise to spray the coffer a dark grey finish with contrasting white walls. This project was carried out to the highest standard with both Morris and Spottiswood and the University of Glasgow delighted with the final outcome. I have always found the management team to go that extra mile in ensuring projects hit program deadlines and found their operatives attention to Health & Safety particularly pleasing. They maintain this crucial aspect and never let it impact ensuring the finishing product is always first class.

Ross WalshSite Manager, Morris and Spottiswood

I would have no hesitation in recommending Carella Coatings. Their operatives provided high quality work on my site at La Belle Forme (UK’s leading cosmetic surgery group). The team were great to work with, with a positive ‘Can do’ attitude. The guys worked through areas leaving a top quality finish, with little to no fuss. I would highly recommend them to carry out any decoration work, on any of my sites going forward. A great company, with a great team of guys, who leave a first class finish.

Gary McCaulProject Manager, Worksmart Contracts

Carella Coatings Limited are a company we put a lot of faith in, who we fully trust will deliver any decoration and specialist coating package to our exacting standards. They are competitive in price, innovative, helpful and extremely technically knowledgeable. We would recommend Carella Coatings to anyone who requires their finishing touches to be of the highest standard.

John McKerrowDirector, GMACK

Pacific Building Limited have had the pleasure of working with Steven Dunsmore and his team at Carella Coatings since the business was formed. They always go the extra mile to achieve a superb finish, which more often than not is commented on by our clients. Carella have worked on projects for most of our blue chip clients including McDonalds, Mitchell and Butler, Tesco Hospitality, Legal & General, Glasgow Airport’s Victoria’s Secret and Scotland Funeral Care to name but a few. Nothing is too much trouble for the team at Carella, and I see no reason why our superb relationship will not continue in the future.

Dougie BrownOperations Manager, Pacific Building Ltd

I first came across Carella Coatings a couple of years ago, when I took over a project that had been already started by one of my colleagues. I found from day one that Carella’s tradesmen had a high attention to quality. Since that first meeting I have used Carella on numerous occasions, with them achieving the same standard time after time.

Stephen CassidySite Manager, Morris & Spottiswood

We have a very good working relationship with Steven and the team at Carella. They have undertaken a number of quality projects with us, all over the UK.

Jim PollockDirector, Clyde Valley Joiners

Having worked with Carella Coatings on Morris and Spottiswood projects, I can say that the jobs they carry out are always exceptional and I can’t fault their standard of work in any way.

Kenny BurnsSite Supervisor, Morris & Spottiswood

We are a small family run business who have commissioned Carella to do work for us several times. They are extremely professional in their approach to working with our customers and their workmanship is exemplary. I would highly recommend this company and will not hesitate to use them for future jobs.

Liz HutchisonPartner, J&M Construction

The whole team at Carella Coatings are true professionals. From the minute you engage their services, you know you are in good hands. They listen to what you are looking for and help you to achieve your objectives with on hand advice for the best route forward. I would recommend the team to anyone looking for a first class professional service.
