A brand new painting and decorating company has been set up in the Market Rasen area by Ukrainian born builder Ivan Slyzhuk and his English wife Eloise Walton.

Having lived and worked for almost 10 years in Portugal’s sunny Algarve region, the couple decided to move back to Eloise’s home county, following the birth of their daughter, and set up their own property maintenance business - Ivan Property Solutions Ltd.

Ivan worked for a number of years as a professional builder for the prestigious Pestana Hotels and Resorts in the Algarve, building luxury apartments and villas, as well as working for British and German expats with homes in the region.

Aside from painting and decorating, Ivan’s portfolio includes wall and floor tiling, carpentry, coving, kitchen and bathroom installation.

Since moving to Lincolnshire, Ivan has carried out work for a number of residents in Market Rasen, Osgodby and Ludford.

Retired Market Rasen butcher Jeffrey Thompson, who employed Ivan to paint the inside of his newly purchased bungalow and tile the bathroom, said: “We are delighted with everything Ivan has done, especially his attention to detail and his work ethic.

“The most impressive for me however was the quality of his tiling,” said Mr Thompson, adding that he has already recommended Mr Slyzhuk to a number of people.

Osgodby resident Mary Wilkinson also employed Mr Slyzhuk to re-tile her bathroom and paint all the outside woodwork.

“I am very happy with the quality of Ivan’s work and his professionalism,” she said.

“I will definitely have him back to do more work in the future.”

Despite being a foreigner and still working on mastering the English language, Mr Slyzhuk says he is keen to integrate into the British community and is already a fan of the local produce, especially Lincolnshire sausages and haslet.

“My aim is to provide a professional service at a fair price to all of my clients,” he said.
