Jim D.

Exterior Painting

Ivan's painting company, (In Home Renovation, IHR) did an outstanding job on painting the exterior of our house. We have an 1880 carriage house with a cupola on top of the roof. Two other companies did not want the job as to the difficulty of access to the cupola; Ivan had no problem with it. He gave me a very fair price. His men went beyond my expectations and took the initative and did repairs as needed. they did a 110% job. I do not hesitate a moment to recommend IHR. jim dowling

Door Installation

Ivan and team were really great to work with, and I’ve since recommended them to several friends. They did such a good job with the door install that I ended up having them change out window trim, replace the vent on the outside of our house, and paint the exterior of our house. They followed through with everything they committed to and I plan to reach out to them on future projects.

Floor Installation or Replacement

I have recently decided to transform one room in the basement to a cute little home gym room (because of Covid I couldn't access any gym and I am into jogging). I had Ivan remove the carpet, place a new floor, paint the walls, hang a big tv... all of it! He was amazing from the start: he and his team did a great job and finished it in time for my elliptical to arrive! Extremely easy to work with, on time, very friendly, just a pleasure to work with. I want to work on a couple more projects around the house and will hire him again!! C.H.

Interior Painting

Ivan and his team are meticulous in their work. They painted almost the entire main floor of our home and were careful to contain the disruption and clean up at the end of each day. That made it possible for us to remain comfortably in our hole throughout the project. Their attention to detail and willingness to ensure the job was done right were outstanding. Marcos is a very skilled professional who does more than just paint - that’s part of the reason we hired IHR instead of a purely painting contractor. I look forward to our next renovation project with Ivan and his talented team!

Interior Painting

We are extremely pleased with the painting work. The attention to detail, everyone’s work ethic, and cleanup was excellent. And all for a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Ivan and his team.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I work with customers on 1 of 2 pricing models: hourly ($50/hr/employee) or by time and materials (T&M). I like to meet with clients before the work begins to scope out the length of time needed as well as provide an estimate of materials. This meeting also helps me to understand clients' budget and goals for their projects. While I don't typically offer discounts, I do not charge for the hours spent commuting to the job, or hours spent buying materials needed to complete the work.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I prefer to visit the work site before the job begins to assess the work and ensure that we are prepared with tools and materials the first day. I understand that each job is unique and for that reason I need to see the space and layout rather than pictures or verbal description. I prefer to meet face to face before the work begins. I understand that you are allowing a new person into your home and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible and make sure that I understand your needs and expectations.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    All of my training and expertise in construction comes from experience. I have worked with and collaborated with a licensed contractor for the past 3 years and understand California building codes and safety requirements. Additionally, I have over 10 years experience overseeing major renovations and remodels for corporations in San Francisco.
