    Great company / trustworthy
    Brian was very personable and gave a great competitive price to paint the exterior doors. He was able to come out on same day nd took the time to explain the process and asked a couple questions before doing something that we may or may not have wanted done.

    We contacted this company after reading very positive reviews on Angie's List. We selected them out of the 2 other companies we received estimates from as we felt that these guys were the most experienced and professional. We scheduled a day and they had to cancel due to one of the guys being injured, things happen it's understandable. We were given a second date and again they asked to reschedule. We have been calling as they never called us to confirm. We have never received a return call. I'm very disappointed and we are currently looking for someone else.

    Brian and his partner painted my mother's entire 3 bedroom town home, including the exterior deck. It took 6 days. Wall paper was removed from several rooms as well. The job was well done. Brian and Gene missed a few things and failed to reinstall a couple items but Brian returned without hesitation and completed the job without argument and with professionalism. I would definitely recommend his company to others with the advice to carefully examine the work once completed. It will be done to your satisfaction.

    Brian helped us get our house ready before we put it on the market. He came out to the house and spoke with my wife and me. He gave us a written estimate of all work and then went through all the estimate and explained any questions we had. The job consisted of installing a kitchen light fixture, drywall repair in kitchen, removing wallpaper, painting several rooms, repairing a railing on our deck, painting the front portion of our house and touching up some staining on some cabinets. It took them less than a week to complete the job. We were very impressed with the quality of the work and they were very prompt and thorough in all areas. Even 3 months after he had completed the work, we needed something else repaired to help us complete the inspection list on our pending sale of our house. Brian came out and took care of it free of charge which really made us quite happy. If I didn't move, I would hire Brian again for sure.

    Brian and his partner did a great job making me feel comfortable with the process and setting expectations. This is my first home, so I do not have much experience painting or inspecting painting. Brian made sure I was satisfied before he left and the job was done. You are always going to find a few little things you wish were done differently or something you missed along the way, but overall I was pleased with the job they did on the interior of our home.

    We were very pleased with the outcome of our painting experience with Al & Brian. Very perfessional, any issues (minor touchups) Brian always had a very 'not a probelm, we'll take care of it' attitude. Always accepting of last minute changes and asked to to additonal small tasks. Pricing was fantastic! Great job! DeDe

    We had them hang, tape and paint drywall in our addition. They answered all our questions, gave us a firm price for the work to be done and completed our project without any problems. About a week after they finished we found a couple of small defects in the drywall, we told some friends and they said good luck they will never come back to fix it. I called Brian and told him about the things I found. Two days later he showed up and fixed the areas at no cost to me. He even repainted the whole room for free, I didnt even have to pay for the paint. Thats customer service at it's best. I will reccomend them to every person I know. Not many companies will stand behind their work like he did.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
(1) Get all estimates in writing. (2) Do not be induced into signing a contract by high-pressure sales tactics. (3) Never sign a contract with blank spaces or one you do not fully understand. If you are taking out a loan to finance the work, do not sign the contract before your lender approves the loan. (4) Remember, you have 3 business days from the time you sign your contract to cancel any contract if the sale is made at your home. The contractor cannot deprive you of this right by initiating work, selling your contract to a lender, or any other tactic. (5) If the contractor does business under a name other than the contractor’s real name, the business must either be incorporated or registered under the Assumed Business Name Act. Check with the Secretary of State to see if the business is incorporated or with the county clerk to see if the business has registered under the Assumed Business Name Act. (6) Homeowners should check with local and county units of government to determine if permits or inspections are required. (7) Determine whether the contractor will guarantee his or her work and products. (8) Determine whether the contractor has the proper insurance. (9) Do not sign a certificate of completion or make final payment until the work is done to your satisfaction. (10) Remember, homeowners should know who provides supplies and labor for any work performed on your home. Suppliers and subcontractors have a right to file a lien against your property if the general contractor fails to pay them. To protect your property, request lien waivers from the general contractor.
