Ben and his crew did a truly amazing job painting our condo at the Tuckahoe. Everything about his team is first rate. They repaired cracked ceilings, scraped old radiators, repaired water damage on the ceiling of a bath, and patched dry wall in the dining room. They then skimmed, primed, and painted every bit of wall and trim. The end result is beautiful. As a real estate investor who has renovated numerous houses, I also want to also speak to Ben's professionalism in a less than ideal work situation. The Tuckahoe has strict rules regarding subcontractors and those rules can be inconsistent. Despite this, Ben was unfailingly flexible and accommodating. To me, this is what being a professional is all about. He is truly the most passionate and determined painter I have ever hired. His work is fantastic and his attitude is even better. I will definitely use him again and would recommend him to anyone.Jan 7, 2017Verified
The owner, Ben, ranged from difficult to impossible to reach. The person he sent to do the painting didn't show up when he said he would, didn't bring the correct materials, didn't do a good job in the places he did paint, and then lied about when he worked/ why he couldn't complete the work on time. The whole thing was a complete nightmare and now I have 1 poorly painted room and I'll be doing the rest myself.Sep 19, 2018Verifiedthis is OCD's reply
to be fair, half of what this client says is correct. i was on holiday oversees doing a project in Lisbon, Portugal. (my commercial clients flew me there for a consult.) she knew this before agreeing to this immediate work, after i implored her to wait a few days. although most of my work is done remotely anyway, but being oversees, it brought new struggles i didn't foresee. and yes it was terribly difficult for me to be there for her. fair enough! so fair, that even though 95% of the work was complete to her liking, she wasn't happy about the timeline, she wasn't happy that i couldn't chat with her several times a day. that we waived all fees to her. state labor laws, and per our contract she would have owed $1,500 i decided to let it slide, feeling badly that she had a poor experience with us. resulting in us not charging her a red cent. i ate those fees. happily. reviews and relationships are the most important to us. i felt that i didnt do my best. and her argument was fair enough, that i needed to own my faults. if anyone has any concerns, please reach out to me personally to chat.
We encountered a couple of minor issues along the way, but this was one of the best experiences that we've had thus far with a contractor. Ben and his all star crew are not like any other painting contractor you will find, and that is intended as a big compliment. Also, not only did we get phenomenal results, but we received those results at a very reasonable price.Apr 12, 2017Verified
Ben's work is impeccable and a pleasure to work with. I live in an old 100+ year old building with "character" and Ben was able to make it feel like new. He helped with picking out the perfect paint colors and didnt leave until every small imperfection was fixed. Would 100% recommend!Feb 8, 2017Verified
Ben fixed a paint job another "professional" did not complete. He and his team were awesome. He is also ended up doing a color consultation for me and I finally love my dining room! Thanks Ben.Mar 10, 2017Verified
