I just moved into a condo and Seattle and needed to have two bathrooms, a bedroom, and an entryway painted - both walls and ceilings.
Alan was by far the most reasonable price and in line with what I can come to expect from living on the East Coast prior to Seattle. A number of other quotes local painters that operate in the Seattle where ridiculous in comparison.
I was not very well versed in painting and materials, so Alan was able to talk me through the options for paint types and recommendations.
Alan showed up on time the day of work and displayed consistent communication via text messages.
The project took three days to complete. The first day Alan completed the priming - the entry way and one bathroom on the second - and the final bathroom and bedroom on the third.
I spent portion of the first day on site and felt comfortable enough to have my girlfriend oversee the work the remainder of the week.
Alan is a very personable individual and easy to work with. The only area of improvement that I would note is that there are a few areas of trim and edging between the ceiling a walls that could have been a little neater or sharper. It did not take much time to touchup, so there were no major concerns.
Overall, Alan was easy to work with, his price was far more reasonable than his competitors, and he completed the work in a timely manner.
