Established in 1984, Greens has grown into a leading regional contractor directly employing a skilled workforce of over fifty time served tradesmen operating primarily across the North of England.

Despite our continued growth and expansion into new market sectors, our commitment to quality and customer service remains as strong as ever. Greens has built an enviable reputation as a firm that has the resources to competitively deal with contracts up to and in excess of one million pounds but at the same time, our customers can be confident that they are dealing with a family run business that genuinely cares about its reputation and takes pride in every job, big or small.

Meet The Team

At Greens we recognise that good people make a good business and there are none more important than our front line painters and decorators. Every member of our team is trustworthy, well presented, and professional.
