First - we hired Michael to paint our home in Concord. Our sons played baseball together. I have had other painters come in and do work previously - basically, the house was covered in post--its for the sloppy job they did and had to redo - it took longer to fix all their mistakes then it did to paint - frustrating. Michael though is a perfectionist! May take longer overall then 'other' painters but, I could not find one area that needed to be redone. In addition - his attention to detail and other 'extras' was fantastic and appreciated. For example... while painting the ceiling - he took time to clean HVAC vents and, removed the dead bugs and washed out the light fixtures. I mean wow.
The second job he did for me was both an interior and exterior job at my Ranch - HUGE job and out of area. Not only did he do superior work - but he stayed at the house during the week - it was like having an artist, maid service and ranch hand all in one! I've never yet, had a contractor as conscientious and focussed on detail as Michael. Nor one as gracious and trust worthy. I am now in need of a touch up and, there is no one else I would trust or call for the work. Now - in the spirit of full disclosure - there is one small thing to be aware of...Michael doesn't always estimate correctly how long he needs to do the quality work he does..... (I've told him this directly - so maybe this is a non-issue) so, please, don't be in a hurry and, consider adding a week or two to what he thinks....trust me - you won't be disappointed!
