Mallard Building and Decorating Services operate across Hampshire but have a decorating and spray-painting team who have the capacity to work nationally. Whatever the project type, value or  location we have a total commitment to deliver high standards of service and fine workmanship on site for every client.  


The trades and senior team who work with our Managing Director Derek Long have developed real expertise over many years in construction through a broad client base and having worked across multiple industry sectors. As our business continues to grow, so does our ability to complete larger projects – currently we welcome contracts up to £500,000. 


We approach every job with passion and attention to detail. Regardless of project size or complexity our commitment is the same. Because of this you always get clear communication, transparency and close collaboration. We embrace training and technological improvement to drive the abilities of our highly experienced team – developing both skills on-site and off-site in terms of management. Being a family-run business we are able to operate a highly personal and director-led approach to all aspects of our company - ensuring continuity in all aspects of our work. 

Why Architects Choose Us

We are a family-owned principal contractor with a dedicated focus on work in the residential and Care fields. Working locally with architects on jobs across Hampshire, we offer high levels of commitment to our work: we take pride in what we do and we always work with building professionals in a friendly and co-operation way.  


We only consider projects where we have proven ability to deliver fine service and where we can also be consistently competitive on price. Every tender is fully detailed and will always incorporate our comment and suggestions for areas where cost savings or beneficial specification changes could be made. Programme and work schedule details will also be detailed  and we work hard to ensure we meet client budgets and agreed timescales.  


In short, we work very hard too to ensure every architect we work with is impressed with our service – we aim to develop good relationships which will ensure repeat work for years to come.

Why Homeowners Choose Us

Working to create a dream house is a true labour of love. Or if we’re working on smaller schemes to extend, remodel or convert a client’s own home, that’s also a true labour of love. 

Private clients will always find we’re a safe choice for their project. We have extensive experience in high-end residential extensions, alterations and complete refurbishments – and it means we can advise, project manage and deliver the perfect finish - every time. 


And importantly, we will always work closely with the homeowner, their architect and other service providers to ensure budgets, deadlines and expectations are always met. 

Why Care Home Owners Choose Us

It takes a great deal of care, attention to detail and sensitivity to project manage building works in any type of Care Home or Care Facility. We have worked very successfully with a wide range of Care providers for many years and fully appreciate the extent of the involvement any builder must provide on site. It goes without saying that the needs of the Care clients we ultimately serve must be considered in real detail at every stage of the build. 

Our success in this field demonstrates just how well we understand these needs - as does our impressive 90% tender conversion rate.
