Erik painted my living room walls and tray ceiling in the living room.
I was immediately impressed with Erik when he came to my home to give me an estimate on the ceiling with paint all over his clothes. He looked like a painter, not a sales person and that's a plus with me. He had his portfolio with him, samples of paint treatments in the colors I said I had in mind for the room (in our initial email talk) and paint chips in every color imaginable. Erik is friendly, easy to talk with and he knows what he's talking about!
Erik Schlake is not just a guy who can paint a wall, he is an artist. He knows paint, color, technique, and is very comfortable in guiding his client toward making a decision that she is happy with.
He spent 3 days meticulously preparing and painting my walls and ceiling. He was very concerned that I liked every step of what he was doing. He doesn't just show up and slap the paint on the wall, he applies it with precision and knowledge of his product and it's proper application.
Erik painted the most gorgeous finish on my tray ceiling, one that is unique to my home only and that coordinates beautifully with the bold wall color I decided upon. It's a true conversation piece. The end result is worthy of a photo spread in a Home magazine, it's truly beautiful.
I highly recommend Erik, he is a true artist/painter/finisher. Give him a call right away so you can get on his schedule, as he is usually scheduled a month out. I was so happy with his work on my living room that I didn't let him leave without getting on his schedule to have him paint my kitchen next month. And I'm already thinking about colors for phase 3 of his work. I'm so glad he answered my request, I expected a painter but instead, I got a true professional artist.
Thank you, Erik!
