Essential Painting-Interior, one-coat, same color
Pros: Arrived on time, very professional, easy to work with, did an excellent job, thorough clean-up when finished
Cons: The work took a little longer than expected but considering the care, attention to detail exhibited and the “do it right the first time” attitude, I can’t complain. As well, the job required additional labor which I had not accounted for when requesting the original quote.
On 09/28/2016, the painters arrived on time, which alone was impressive considering the number of contractors I’ve dealt with that either showed up much later than the scheduled appointment time or didn’t show up at all. The painter in charge reviewed the work to be done with me while the others got their equipment out of the truck. He took a look around and presented an estimate that was a bit higher than the original, sight unseen quote I had received through Thumbtack. He explained that the two-tone walls, separated by a chair rail would require more time to paint but said he could make it work with the lower price. I’m on a tight budget with this project so I'm really glad the people on-site are flexible enough to make adjustments on the fly. That alone earned lots of respect.
Overall, my experience with Essential Painting was very positive. I’ll certainly keep their contact information for future projects!
