    Greg did a good job. He was a little more than other bids, but did do some extras like putting on a new doorknob and weatherstripping around the garage door. The house looks really good. I don't have a picture to post at this time.

    House painted
    We had the exterior and the front and back doors painted. Greg was very easy and flexible to work with.

    Greg did a great job of getting the house painted. We got delayed by weather twice, but that isn't in his control. Some of the paint started to raise/peel after the initial coat was put on, and Greg has said that he will come back to do touch up work whenever we are ready. All in all, did a good job and will be looking to hire him for any future projects.

    Very good job at an attractive price.
    Greg Ward did a great job both preparing the house for painting and carefully applying the paint. His price was very competitive with other estimates we received and there were no cost overruns. He provided a generous 3 year guarantee on labor and used paint which provided a lifetime guarantee.

    Great Job and a great price.
    Greg did an excellent job. He was prompt and thorough, cleaned up his area afterwards and the repairs he performed to some of the areas where he replaced some wood was well done. His painting job was excellent. I will definitely use his services again. RDB

    Excellent Work!
    Greg painted our exterior trim, patio celing, and exterior doors. We were very pleased with his work. He took his time and worked very carefully to insure a professional looking job. He cleaned up afterwards and said if we needed him to come back for anything he may have missed, he would be happy to do so. We will be needing some interior painting later on, and for sure we will call Greg to do it.

What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Most interior rooms for painting two coats on the walls will run about $250 for labor and materials. I basic repaint for a standard ceiling will run about $150 and that is due to the plastic to be used to cover the walls and flooring. Most ceilings are sprayed and not rolled. Trim will run different prices depending on the work needed to be done. We do require furniture to be moved to the middle of the room and wall hanging to be removed, but can do that for you, We charge $25 a room, to do that service but that rate is not set. If it is a large project and not just one or two bedrooms, sometimes we do not charge.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I always make sure the customer knows upfront my schedule, what paints I use, and describe exactly what we do. I always prefer to do a site survey to give the customer the most accurate pricing and firm pricing.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been in business since 2010.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I used to do this work for friends and family before I started it as a full time job.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have done residential and commercial business. I have some great customers and treat them with the highest respect. I know I have one bad review, which we can not comment on from the review, but I promise that the review is not correct and that I did everything to make him a 100% satisfied customer. which is always my goal.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I would always have at least three of the five contractors come out for a firm estimate. As I have noticed through out the years, a firm estimate protects not only you but the contractor as well.
