"We employed I C King Ltd to redecorate extensively our 16th century barn and build a new bathroom in the master bedroom. The work has been extremely carefully carried out and the wallpapering skills of his team are remarked upon by everyone who sees the very complicated hangings. Nothing is too much trouble and the team are always polite, cheerful and totally trustworthy. I would not hesitate to recommend I C King Ltd."
