Terrific outcome. 30 years of experience shows in the outcome. Will use Tim going forward for all high end furniture repairs, painting, and trim work.Jul 25, 2020Verified
Tim sanded and painted two chairs for us, and they came out fantastic! He did a great job, and we would definitely recommend him. He was reasonably priced, friendly and quick.Sep 28, 2020Verified
Tim is a true artist. My heart was broken when my cleaning lady used a chemical on my porous table that removed the finish. I thought it was ruined forever. Tim assured me he could make it good as new and he was as good as his word. See for yourself from the before and after photos attached. I would highly recommend Tim and would definitely hire him again should the need arise.May 31, 2020Verified

- 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.
