We take Pride in our Painting

Joe completed work on our new apartment last month and I cannot speak highly enough of his work. My husband and I thought we could try to paint the place ourselves, but 5 hours in, with no real progress, other than terribly jagged lines, we did a search on Yelp and decided to go with Joe based on the glowing recommendations from other Yelpers. Within a few minutes of my email inquiry, Joe responded with all the right questions and concerns. He was extremely professional, courteous and also super funny! Any professional service provided with a smile and a sense of humor is A+ by us! Because of our work schedules, we were not able to meet Joe in person when he began the project, and only had the pleasure of meeting him upon completion of the job. Despite that hurdle, Joe communicated with me 3 to 4 times per day with a progress update. He handled this caveat with such coolness that a HUGE weight was lifted off our shoulders during what was a pretty stressful moving-in period. He was pretty much the easiest part of the process! And then we saw the amazing job he did. Wow. I'm going to have to upload some pictures soon. Needless to say, my husband and I would not have come close to what he was able to produce. If you want a job done right, you must hire people who know how to do it and who are certified and insured, like Joe. And despite a massive mishap on the part of Home Depot - who gave us unmixed paint on our second purchase when we needed to buy a bit more - Joe did his best to ensure that the paint was mixed evenly and well on the walls. Joe is a true perfectionists so he is still trying to help me get a refund from Home Depot, but to our untrained eyes, all we notice is the great work he did on our new place so we can't imagine having a better job done! He truly transformed an apartment that had old white walls and drab yellow, seemingly hospital-certified doors and doorways, into a modern, cool pad. I can't recommend Joe enough!!!Oct 17, 2013

Joe did an excellent job painting my apartment. He was very responsive during the bid process and has a way of establishing trust and credibility from the start. He knows what he is doing and is very diligent in making sure his work product is high quality and that the customer is satisfied. He cares, which is not always the case. Know that if you hire Joe, he will get the job done for you and you will be very satisfied in the end. I have already had a number of people comment on how nice the paint looks. It's the difference between a job that stands out and just having a fresh coat slapped up.Jul 3, 2013
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I learned to paint at a very early age. My early teens. Back then there was only enamal paint. Much harder to paint with. I was always a perfectionist. Still am. I treat every job/home like it is a masterpiece. I love to paint! I love making the apt. or home beautiful for the home owner.
- What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?With the economy circling the toilet, there are so many painters and helpers out of work. The majority claim to be professional painters. Most of which are not and were laid off for a reason. Throwing paint on the walls does not make for a professional. Even if you've been doing it for years. It takes skill and expertise to get outstanding results. With all the shoddy work being performed, customers really need to be more thorough when considering who will be doing the work. Rather than how cheap they can get it done for. You get what you pay for. Check credentials and referrences and if they're insured. If they're not insured, they could fall off the ladder and then sue you for your home. Buyer beware!!!
