About this pro
Mr. Bowen did a great job repairing the ceiling in a bedroom, and he finished the repairs within the 2-3 day time frame he quoted. However, Mr. Bowen showed up several hours late the first 2 days, and he called us on the 2nd day advising that he would be on site in 1 hour (after he was already 3 hours late). Furthermore, Mr. Bowen WAS NOT willing to work with us on labor costs, as he stated he does in his profile. The price he quoted was FIRM, despite our offer to pay him in cash and despite him being unprofessionally late 2 days. As a matter of fact, Mr. Bowen stated he was becoming increasingly "frustrated" by our continuous efforts to get a minimal discount, so we have no intentions on using his service in the future. We think Mr. Bowen may be a great fit for others, but we have ZERO tolerance for unprofessionalism at our expense.Jun 12, 2014
Ronald was wonderful to work with. He was willing to answer any questions that I had. Very professional and was on time with all of the materials needed. He quoted me a price for the drywall project and not only stuck to it but was willing to give me a discount. I would not hesitate to call Ronald again for another project.May 3, 2014Verified
Ron did a great job painting the exterior shutters on our home. Anytime I need a paint job I will contact him. Thanks Ron. Steve Martin Charlotte, NCMay 1, 2014

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Nothing complicated after 30 years, I can estimate most paint quantity from sight. I try to work with my clients on labor. Grandmas' and single mothers get a little more flex. Overall I try to work within a clients budget.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Every time I go into the paint store I get an update. It seems there are always new formulas. It helps that I use the same store because they are always looking out for me to get the best results at the best prices.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I enjoyed the positive feeling surrounding a job well done, a feeling of having completed something, a positive transformation, a sense of worthiness.
