Who we are and what we do

Welcome to Marshels of Farnham – your local painters and decorators in Surrey

With a wealth of expertise, our team has successfully worked on numerous projects across Surrey and surrounding counties. Our goal is to deliver high-quality results that leave a lasting impact.

A family business passionate about the power of paint

Founded in 1986 by Jamie & Mandy Elstow, they have successfully run the company and built a team they’re proud of for over 37 years. Gary Pickering joined shortly after as the third director at Marshels, bringing his managerial expertise within the painting and decorating industry into the company.

We’re a family-run business striving for only the highest standard of work, and only take on tradespeople and painting and decorating contractors that take pride in their craftsmanship. We promote strong relationships within the company work force, and regularly invest in apprenticeship schemes – and that’s why we work towards the promotion of the newer generation of workers, and the development of their skills.

Empowering our local community

Being part of the local community is more than just a label for us – it’s a genuine passion. We’ve been diving headfirst into all kinds of exciting local projects and initiatives that make Farnham a better place to live. For instance, we’ve proudly stepped up as sponsors for the Farnham Carnival and Farnham Cricket Club… and we’re only just getting started.

My house badly needed extensive render repairs and redecoration. Marshels came to my rescue after I had been let down by others in recent years. Thanks to Adam for arranging and leading the work, and to Eamon who carried it out. Polite, friendly, reliable, well organised, and with thorough preparation and attention to detail at all stages. Overall - superb quality of work. House looks fantastic!

Excellent quality work from Marshels. This is the second time that we have used this company for our decorating work, and once again they have done an outstanding job. Pete, who worked with us, is a perfectionist and has real attention to detail. We can highly recommend Marshels.

I came across Marshels website looking for a decorator. They took over wallpapering from another decorator whom I felt was struggling with the job. Marshels contract Manager allocated the job to a very skilled, conscientious, meticulous and considerate staff. A real craftsman. He had to be as the plaster work in my house is not particularly good. The job was done within the timeframe and with great care and consideration for me and my house. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We recently used Marshels to repaint and decorate the front of our shop. From start to finish the experience has been exceptional! Steve initially came out and quoted within a couple of days of my enquiry. The work was carried out within a couple of weeks of proceed. They worked around our closed hours, meaning it didn't affect our working day. The work carried out was to exceptional standard. Steve stayed in touch throughout the project, finishing with a visit to sign the job off. I can not recommend Marshels enough and I shall be using them in the future for home projects. Thanks again to all

Really happy with our newly painted walls! It took a while for the work to get done, obviously Marshels are popular! And a bit pricey, but can’t fault the work at all!! Would definitely recommend!

We were very pleased with the work which Marshels did in renovating the exterior of our rendered house, and the highly professional approach which was adopted. Shane and Drew diligently cleared up every day ensuring that there was no mess and kept us informed as to progress. They went the extra mile in addressing other small issues which arose. Adam provided managerial oversight of the work and checked that we were happy with the final result. We would unhesitatingly recommend them and will use them again.

We employed Marshels to help us carry out a complete refurbishment of a rental property we had purchased in Guildford. We knew that there was a lot of work necessary but Jamie and his team proved to be thorough and professional throughout, providing a very detailed quotation, coordinating the various trades necessary (electricians, plumbers, plasterers etc), and finishing the flat to a very good standard. Whenever there were decisions to be made, Marshels were in touch and responded promptly; we really felt we could trust them to do a good job for us throughout. We will certainly be using Marshels for any future works of this nature and I warmly recommend their services.

What makes a good painter and decorator?

First impressions are everything, so look out for things like owning an official website with helpful information, honest customer reviews and a catalogue showcasing their work. General professionalism is essential when looking for a painter or decorator.

How do deposits work in painting and decorating?

If a decorator asks for a deposit, they should first provide a detailed quote, outlining the amount of preparation, the process, materials and the full list of works they intend to carry out. They should also provide their terms and conditions for the remaining payment.
