Highly decorative painting

Our Newcastle team provides highly decorative painting solutions across the North East.

The National Trust is one of our most established customers in the North East. We have painted multiple award-winning properties for the organisation, including the landmark Souter Lighthouse, located on the East coast, and Ormesby Hall near Middlesbrough.

We repainted the exterior of the iconic hooped red and white Souter Lighthouse and completed a full external refresh for Ormesby Hall.

Commercial decorating in Newcastle

As commercial painters in Newcastle, we can undertake projects of significant size for customers of particular significance in the local area, such as North Tyneside Council.

We carefully plan and prepare for all our projects, and our North East team can complete painting work whilst an area remains open to the public. We evaluate each site to ensure the management of health and safety issues remains of paramount importance.

Our dedicated team of directly employed commercial painters ensure that we offer a flexible service to various commercial customers, including:

  • Stockton on Tees Borough Council
  • Riverside Housing
  • James Cook Hospital.

We can provide universities with small teams of two locally employed, knowledgeable painters, who work quietly on campus during term time. During holiday periods, we can increase this provision to a team of ten painters, undertaking more extensive redecoration works to:

  • students’ unions
  • sports centres
  • halls of residence
  • lecture theatres.

Our Favourite Projects

James Cook University, Hospital

Bagnalls has a long-standing history of painting and decorating at the James Cook Hospital in Middlesbrough. We were the painting contractor on site, working for Mowlems, when the new PFI (Private Finance Initiative) hospital was commissioned in the early 2000s. Over the years we have provided the hospital with maintenance painting services to ensure that communal areas including stairwells, corridors and waiting rooms are regularly maintained due to high traffic levels from both the public and staff.

Our Favourite Projects


One notable project is our work with Warburtons, repainting the steelwork and ceiling bay of their production area. We enjoyed taking on the challenge of eliminating all wooden materials and equipment to ensure no splinters on site. We’re very proud of the work our team completed and pleased that the Warburtons’ staff are satisfied with the quality of our work.

Our Favourite Projects

Dales School

Our North East team is also very proud to have worked on a specially converted train car for the wonderful Dales School. We helped bring the teachers’ vision to life by redecorating an old train car as a library! The new library was featured on Channel 4’s George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces, highlighting The Dales School’s commitment to making learning engaging and fun. We’re so proud to have been a part of such a special project!
