From out of state, we purchased a 110 yr old victorian in the short north 10 weeks prior to moving in...the plan was to complete several projects prior to move-in while the house was empty, including painting the entire house. This was a large job with every room requiring a different wall, ceiling, and wood trim color...including crown molding. After the first TWO friend referred painters flaked out, I went on Thumbtack and found Robert Erisman. After a couple of conversations with Robert, I crossed my fingers, gave him the lockbox code to my house, 15 different paint colors, and a lot of blind faith!
Well, Robert was/is awesome! Not only did he work late into the night many times to complete the job before our furniture arrived, his attention to detail was incredible...several rooms were dark colors and required five coats(Sherwin Williams)! Robert made sure everything was PERFECT and did not charge more for the extra time it took.
Furthermore, if meticulous painting is not enough, Robert also re-stained, blended, and top coated all of the natural wood wainscot, doors, and window sills that had faded or been damaged by pets...it looks INCREDIBLE!
In summary, Robert Erisman is immensely trustworthy, diligent, thoughtful, and talented. On top of those hard to find qualities he is reasonable on price...how can you beat that?!
