About Us 


Jake Charles has quickly become a renowned painter & decorator in North Cornwall since he established the business back in 2014.  He has been in the industry for many years having started off at a local yacht building business where attention to detail was key in painting the interior and exterior of several different styles of top end sailing boats.


From here Jake moved on to painting on a much larger commercial scale with a company specialising in large new build developments and after two years decided the time was right to focus more on the customer and set up on his own.


The rest as they say is history and Jakes business has gone from strength to strength.  He has a fantastic relationship with local letting agencies and estate agents such as John Bray, Cole Rayment and White and Miller Countrywide having taken on contracts for holiday rentals and new home owners who want to freshen up their new homes. 


The upturn in business in 2017 required Jake to take on a new member to the team in his brother, Sam.  Between the brothers they are able to quote for jobs all over Cornwall and further grow the business in our beautiful county they get to call home.

2018 proved to be another fantastic year, taking on a large scale hotel renovation as well as numerous private residential projects.  At the end of the year Sam headed to Australia to take in the sights and sounds of the Southern Hemisphere, still working within the trade his knowledge and skill is growing immensely and we look forward to welcoming him back in early 2020.

With the business' success booming over the years we are thankful to all our customers for their fantastic word of mouth recommendations and feedback which enables us to keep growing and providing the best service throughout the county.  In early 2019 we added another valuable member to the JT Charles team - John Oliver.  John has worked in the trade for many many years and brings a wealth of experience and knowledge, not to mention a fantastic can-do attitude and amazing customer service.


“Great service begins and ends with an experienced and friendly professional, so let me know how I can be of service and I’ll be happy to assist you.  I provide straightforward quotes at a great rate and pride myself on incredible customer service, not only to meet your needs but also exceed your expectations of what a dependable, experienced painter and decorator can be.”
