Introduction: The worst mistake a potential customer can make is to not ask a technical question or to assume something can't be done. In many instances, the answer can save them considerable money and the advice is free! I'm proud to offer a wide range of services to enhance the appearance of any home or business. For more than thirty years I have been devoted to offering services from color matching damaged painted surfaces (including faux) I have at my disposal state-of-the-art dust extraction equipment that eliminates sanding dust leaving your home or place of business spotless and dust-free. I also use low V.O.C. coatings and waterborne stains eliminating odors and environmentally harmful substances. My service includes cabinet re-finishing using spray systems that can match just about any painted factory finish. I am capable of correcting paint issues that a lot of other contractors shy away from. As a matter of fact, many paint contractors call on me to resolve issues they cannot address themselves. That's the level of experience I'm proud to offer. What I like most about my job is the consistent positive reaction I get at the completion of my projects. Many of my customers have told me they didn't think their finish could be saved or their color could be perfectly matched. I love proving them wrong and walking away knowing I have made them very happy.

Tim did an amazing job with refinishing my kitchen cabinets. He took time to be sure the color matched perfectly and the extra time to do touchups. He was very professional and responded very quickly to scope it out, schedule and finish the job! Highly recommend!

Tim and his team of workers were ideal to work with. Tim answered emails and phone calls, and texts very quickly - any problems he was on top of it. A real pleasure to deal with and very professional. I am very happy with his work and have recommended him and they were happy with him also. Do not hesitate he really is worth it. My kitchen went from dark to light!! You can see the pictures - Dark (before) and Light (after).

Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure meeting you and Naomi. I spoke to Nancy about your Tarkey painting. She would like to know if there are any labels on the back that could help establish provenance. This piece is very unusual when compared to his popular paintings...

Tim is a pleasure to work with. He did a beautiful refinishing job on-site for a hand rail and newel post. He’s a real perfectionist and also cleaned up so nicely when he was finished. He’s busy so it took awhile for him to squeeze me in but he’s definitely worth the wait! I highly recommend him.

FAQs

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

    An average room can be painted for between $500 and $1000 depending on degree of preparation and amount of trim. However, pricing is determined by a multitude of factors: distance travelled, tolls, materials to be used, level of difficulty, amount of surface area, accessibility... My pricing is predicated a lot on previous projects with similar attributes. With many years of experience I have a pretty accurate picture of the degree of involvement and what my labor and overhead costs are. I base my bottom line on those costs including insurance and we negotiate from there.

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

    I do my best when I'm contacted to understand exactly what the customer needs. In some cases a few pictures sent to my e-mail help me understand the scope of work involved. I then offer advice and a site visit to determine the conditions and the expectations of the customer. After a visit, I write a formal price proposal in Quickbooks. When it is accepted I ask for a small deposit, usually around ten or fifteen percent, to secure a spot on my schedule. I often encourage my new customers to contact several names on my referral list to assure them of my integrity and my intention to do the best job possible.

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

    I regularly attend local chapter meetings of both Wallcovering Installers Association and the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America. Both organizations have educational programs. I also go to Pro Shows sponsored by distributors and manufacturers of the products and tools that I use in my discipline. I just signed up for a prep to finish seminar for sprayed finishes at a local paint store.
