About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I work on every job like it is my own. I still take pride in my work. There seems to be a lot of that missing today. People working just well enough to be paid. I work to the best of my ability from start to finish. Add to that the 31 years of experience, I'm sure you will be pleased with my work.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

The satisfaction that comes from my job. In most cases when I leave a job your project is finished.

    I am an interior decorator and I have had the pleasure of working with Joe on two wallpaper/paint projects. He does an amazing job at a very competitive price, and most important - my clients LOVE him!! He is very easy to work with and I am so grateful that I have found him. He is now at the top of my list!

    Unreliable and Unprofessional
    I gave 1 star because Joe was extremely unreliable and unprofessional. We communicated back and forth for several weeks before finally agreeing on March 18 that he would come on March 31 to hang our wallpaper. The next day (March 19) I hired him through Thumbtack and also asked what we needed to do to prepare. As of March 30, I had not heard back from him so I emailed, asking if we were still confirmed for him to come the following day to hang the wallpaper. No response. Nothing. Not an email apologizing that he had forgotten to write the appointment on his calendar and was no longer available, or an email saying that he could no longer come for some other reason, or an email saying anything. Nothing. As of today (April 2), I have heard nothing back from him. Not only do I not have my wallpaper hung, but I have lost two weeks in getting it done since I thought I had confirmed with him to do the job. A real professional would respond back, even saying that he had forgotten and was longer available, make amends in whatever way possible (coming out to do the job asap and offering a discount) and would then have a loyal customer and one who will gladly make referrals to others for his services. That is not what happened here, and speaks volumes as to how Joe evidently runs his business.

    Powder Room Transformation
    Joe was very responsive in communications, and on time the day of the installation. He projected it would take 4-5 hours to do our powder room and he was right on target. The finished product is really impressive! The downside is that there was a lot of glue or other adhesive on the pedestal sink and on the toilet afterwards, which I had to clean up. But overall, I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone looking to install wallpaper.

    Ignored my emails. Had to hire someone else as we thought he wasn't going to show.
    We scheduled J.P. Marchant to paint our new home December 20 and 21st. We emailed him a week before, since we hadn't heard from him, to see when he needed our paint choices by. He replied right away "By December 30th." I then replied reminding him he was hired to work December 20 and 21. He didn't reply. I sent 5 more emails over the week and he still never replied. I finally messaged him on Thumbtack too, to let him know we hired someone else, as we couldn't trust he would show up for the job. He finally replied on Thumbtack a week later and said he was still planning on doing our job, which was the following day. He didn't have our paint colors or our address, and obviously not the correct dates, so I'm not sure how he thought he would show up on time. His excuse was "Sorry email is my least viewed source. Have been working every day and when I get home I don't always turn on the computer." All of our communication had been through email and he always responded in a timely matter. Even his response with the incorrect dates was sent an hour after I sent it, on a Sunday evening. If you own a business, it is your responsibility to check your email. I explained I would've rather him just let me know that he accidentally double booked or something, instead of completely ignoring my emails.

    Had to respond to this review. Title is very misleading.I did not show up for job because she had let me know she would be hiring some else days before the job was scheduled to start. MY mistake was sending the wrong date. I had been very busy and was not checking emails when I got home. If sghe had used Thumbtack or text she would have gotten an immediate response. She makes it sound like I took a week to respond to her thumbtack message but that week was the same week she took to contact me that way by telling me I was no longer needed.Job was never double booked, I had been scheduling around her dates for 6 weeks.

You can tell he's been doing this for years and truly enjoys it. He's passionate about his work and when I was nervous about wallpapering for the first time, he reassured me that I'd love it! And he's right! Now I want to have him wallpaper my bedroom ;) Thanks Joe! -Kristin

    Exactly what we envisioned
    We couldn't be happier with this project. Joe removed wallpaper from our dining room ceiling (that had been up for 22 years) and smoothed out and painted it. Then he wallpapered the room. Our house was built in 1902 with plenty of quirks, like uneven walls and a ton of woodwork to go around. He said it was the most challenging room he's done, but it looks amazing. He has very high attention to detail, and you have to use a magnifying glass to find any seams. I think this is truly an art form and Joe really is a master. I have already recommended him to several people.

    In a word: phenomenal. After struggling to even find someone who could tackle the project (wallpapering 24-foot walls over a staircase), it was refreshing to find Joe. He was incredibly responsive and able to tackle the job in short order. He is detailed and beyond thorough, going back to rework areas that weren't quite perfection. He even noticed he had scratched a portion of the paint on an adjacent wall (20 feet up in the air, no one would have ever noticed it) and fixed it immediately. The finished product is stunning and I couldn't be happier. Plus, he's professional and friendly, always a bonus when entrusting your home to someone.

    JP was referred to me by a coworker. He had low prices compared to other bids. Based on other reviews, I saw he had a few poor ones for flaking on jobs. Little did I know I’d be one of them. He came out for a quote and was professional. He even understood because of my asthma he couldn’t smoke during the day at my house. He asked me to check in with him the day before the job started to confirm he was coming. I checked in on Sunday when he was at Home Depot picking up paint. He confirmed timing was still good so I got Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off of work to prep minor projects for my home sale while JP was at my house all day painting. I’ll go exactly from text messages (he’s never called me since that Sunday) for the rest of this review. Monday he was set to arrive between 8 and 9 am. 8:48 am Monday text from Joe: I overslept. Should be there in an hour. I checked in about once every 2 hours after that via text and phone (his voicemail box was full) and got no response. I had no idea what happened – I even checked for traffic accidents, etc. 11:45 am Tuesday text from Joe (first response since Monday): Hey, sorry was in bed all day yesterday. Feeling better but still weak today. Hoping for tomorrow. So at this point I’ve stayed home from work 2 days and no painting has been done by JP. I texted him (voicemail still full and he didn’t answer my phone call to follow up with his text) asking him to call me Tuesday night to confirm he could come tomorrow. He texted to assure me he’d call me Tuesday night to talk about Wednesday. Last contact from Joe was Tuesday at 12:20 pm. I ended up having to fire Joe via text on Wednesday when for the third day in a row he didn’t show up. The first response I got to the text (I would have left a voicemail, but it was still full) was at 3:42 pm Wednesday asking if we’d like to deliver the paint he’d bought for the job. At this point I’d spent all day Wednesday (my last vacation day) going out to buy paint and start the jobs myself. We ended up finding another (more expensive, but totally trustworthy and worth it) painter who understood our plight to get our house listed asap and he came and did night and weekend work to finish the job. Now I can’t say anything for his painting abilities –as you can tell from my review he never came back to paint my house. If you’re willing to take the risk – that’s up to you. But don’t read these reviews and think it could never happen to you. I made that mistake and it was not worth the headache. JP to this day has never called to apologize, or called at all for that matter. He seemed like a nice guy, but we didn’t have the time to mess around like this.

    I tried to reschedule after having the flu and being in bed for 2 days, but after already taking 2 days off of work Elizabeth was unwilling and I ended up stuck with the paint I had purchased for her job. I would have been willing to do the same as the painter she used but at this point she was too angry with me for staying in communication with while sick.

He offered to pick up the paint for us (which was super helpful as a busy mom of two), he supplied all of the meterials, took off all of the outlet covers and put them back on, removed all the tape, helped move our washer and dryer when we had forgotten to do it ourselves, heck....he even brought up our trash cans from the bottom of our driveway as a courtesy. He also gave us an extremely fair price. I cannot speak more highly of him. We will be hiring him again when we finish our basement. Thanks Joe!!

    Joe painted several different areas inside our house & did an excellent job. Professional lines & everything was cleaned up & out of our way as soon as he was done. We were so satisfied, we added on another area at the last minute, which he did without question. We will be calling him for any work we need done in the future.

    Joe is simply excellent! I made the right call hiring him. He did three rooms. All perfect with clean lines. Joe is also very knowledgeable with the experience / background you want. Gave great suggestions on how best to approach each room. Punctual, professional, fairly-priced and most importantly, superior results!

    Joe painted my living room, kitchen, and two hallways. He worked very fast, which at first, I was a little concerned about. His work is very professional, however - no drips and no paint on my ceiling! I have since booked him to stain my front porch and my deck. I would definitely recommend hiring Joe, and I will do so again.

We had an issue with the color match that was done and joe came right back to my house the next day to correct the problem. He is very good at what he does and i would hire him again. He is someone that u can trust too...i left him alone in my house the whole day without any worries.

    Joe Marchant has been fantastic. He has not yet finished the project as there were rather serious problems with the removal of the string cloth wall paper. At this point in the project, I am very pleased with the quality of work being done and the communication between Joe and myself.
  • Jenifer M. Oct 30, 2014
    I had a terrible experience with Joe. He was supposed to begin painting at my home this past Monday morning. I confirmed with him the night before, and he said that he would arrive the next day at 9 a.m. But he never showed up. What's worse is that as of 3 days later, he hasn't returned multiple phone calls and text messages. I had worried about his well-being. I spent a ton of time cleaning out closets, taking down curtains and art work, etc. to prepare for this project. All of it was a waste of my time because he didn't bother to show up or call to reschedule. I'll be hiring someone else who is reliable.

    Joe was fantastic. We first got in contact with him Saturday evening and by Tuesday night our house was painted, including an in-home estimate on Monday. He gave us a flat rate but still took the time to re-patch and re-tape the rooms up to his standards. He worked quickly but cleanly. His communication was excellent, even giving us notification in the morning of running 10-15 minutes late (traffic). The painting was well done, even better than what you'd expect from a professional job. I'd highly recommend Joe. I would hire him again for a simple straightforward paint job like this one or a more complex, detailed job if it came up.

    Joe did a fantastic job on our media room. He showed up on time and did his best to repair the flaws in the wall (created by previous owners who did a subpar job finishing our basement) before he began to paint. He was meticulous about every detail and I could tell he really takes pride in his work. I would use him again and again.

    Joe does great work, once you can actually get him there. He has done quality work for my home, as well as two homes in my family. However, he was supposed to be at our home to paint a theater room at 8AM on Friday. He never showed up, nor did he ever call. I called, and called, and texted, until I finally got him to pick up. He had overslept. He knew the importance of having this room done by Tuesday, as the theater components were being installed then, and it had to be painted before this. He said he would come Saturday at 8am, which he did. He completed the ceiling, and two walls for us, leaving 1/2 the room undone by the end of the day, and stating he would be back on Monday at 9am (Labor Day). Monday at 9am came and went, with no phone call, text message, and no painting. When I finally got a hold of him, the excuse was that he had to help his daughter move. I understsand family situations, but moving is something that is planned in advance, and a phone call or text message would have been much appreciated. My fiance and I ended up having to finish the room ourselves. I wouldn't have thought much of it, had he also done this once to my mother, and once to my sister. It seems to be a common business practice. We informed Joe we would like to pay him for the services he provided on Saturday, and he could come pick his things and his payment up at his leisure, and he has yet to get back to me. Again, when you can get Joe to arrive when he says he wlil be there, he does quality work. But, in the future, my fiance and I would gladly pay double for a company that will arrive when they say.
    Joe M. Sep 10, 2014

    Most of what she says is true. I had a job which was more physical than normal and I had to reschedule for Saturday. I had not seen the job until that day. I told her husband to be That I would stay till the theater area of the room was complete so they would be able to install the equipment on Tuesday. I painted the entire ceiling(40'x16') two coats, the long 40' wall and short 15' area two coats, and the 16' projection wall two coats. All with different colors! Leaving two short walls away from actual theater which required a fourth color.(if it wasn't for all the colors the room would have been finished). Sunday I spent moving my pregnant daughter (TWINS!) and yes I slept through my alarm Monday. When I talked to Lisa I explained that I was too tired to go ahead with the Tuesday installation and I would be able to finish painting Wednesday. At first she ok with that but then later texted me back saying her husband would finish. I realize she was under a lot of stress with the wedding 2 weeks away and I didn't help. Joe

    Joe Marchant just finished painting my son's entire new townhome on August 14, which was the date promised, and did a wonderful job from start to finish, paying attention to every detail. He is a great guy to work with, very dependable, arriving every day at the time promised. He kept us updated throughout the entire process, and was very patient with us as we struggled to find just the right paint color. Joe's quote was very reasonable compared to the many other quotes we got when we first starting looking for a painter. Most of Joe's business comes from referrals and through word-of-mouth, because people that have hired him for their painting jobs are extremely satisfied, and know that family and friends would be as well. We will definitely hire Joe for any of our future painting jobs.

    Being that we live out of state, Joe was very accommodating to the situation. He went to our condo and gave an estimate of the cost for the project. When we received the invoice it was the same price. We kept in contact regarding start and completion times for the job. He was really nice to work with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a painter. Thank you Joe! **I would like to mention that I would give outstanding job if I could have seen it for myself. Joe did send images but it is not the same as seeing it with my eyes.

    I was looking for someone to come out and do a painting project for me and searched on thumbtack. Joe responded. He was really fast with his replies which made planning easier for me as I had tons of other projects that was needed to be done prior to me moving into my new home. The painting project took about 4 days straight for him to complete because there was a lot of paintings to be done. Joe went above and beyond my expectations to ensure I was completely satisfied with the work he had done. I am very satisfied. He even did a patching up of a hole in my kitchen by the stove that was previously covered by a microwave range for me which turned out fabulous! I'm speechless at the quality of his work and the time he spent in doing so. I will definitely hire Joe again without any hesitation in the future.

    Joe came recommended by a friend. He came to bid a job and we agreed on two dates the following week to complete the work. I tried calling and texting numerous times over the next few days to confirm paint colors. Joe did not return any calls or texts, and on the agreed upon day to start the job, he did not show up. We finally spoke that night and he confirmed he would be there the following morning. Joe never showed up and did not respond to calls or texts on the day he agreed to do the job. He put me in a real bind and I would not recommend him. I gave him two chances to make it work and he failed both times.

    Had to step back and take a break. I was starting to overbook (had even booked my daughters wedding day). Then with my brother sent to the hospital and my daughters wedding on the weekend the stress just shut me down. I have changed the way I book jobs, 3 or more day jobs will have a free day between jobs to lessen the physical as well as mental stress. If I could go back I would handle things differently, by calling the clients and letting them know what happening in my personal life. It sure didn't take long to ruin a perfect 5 star rating.

    We hired Joe to paint out new condo space. We had some bold colors to cover and he knew right away what he needed to do to make it look awesome. The fact that he has 25+ yrs experience in the biz made him so easy to work with and trust. I even had doubts about my colors flowing from room to room and Joe had great insight on what would work best, and it turned out great! He gave us a fair and competitive estimate and working solo he finished our (almost) 1,000 ft space in 1.25 days - even with a few rooms needing more than 1 coat. I would definitely recommend Joe to anyone who's looking for an efficient, professional painter with a great attitude! Thanks again, Joe!

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Most of my painting jobs these days seem to be the difficult areas. Such as entry ways, vaulted living areas, or kitchens. This may be due to the economy as more people are painting the simpler rooms themselves. Of course I'm willing to paint or wallpaper any room you like!
