My name is Brenda and I found Chris. I filled out a form on Thumbtack about the work we needed done and he was one of four
who responded. I NEVER do things like that but something prompted me to fill the form out and was I happy I did! Chris impressed me from the start with the way he stayed on top of my search. He wasn't pushy, just asked that I let him know if I had found someone to do the job so he could close the request out. That he followed up in that manner said a lot to me. It showed that he cared! When I knew his initial bid was too low (which he made from what I had written on Thumbtack and yes, I said too low!) I asked him to come out and see my house. We needed all the exterior trim painted and have a large house... 43 + windows that are all wood, not metal. I knew he needed to see it so we set up a time for that. He was prompt and within a few days I had a written, very detailed estimate. I had bids from four painters, one who had worked for neighbors, one from a friend of our
son's, one from someone recommended to me and Chris'. The bids varied by several thousand...on both sides. Chris' was in the middle and I really liked his work ethic. We went with him. We also had quite a bit of rotted places on some of the trim and columns of our house that needed to be repaired. Before the job started he came to our home with a very detailed contract, but not one that you can't understand (like a lawyer would write). Everything, and I mean everything, was spelled out. He went over it thoroughly before I signed it and he signed it. We did have a change at one point and the next morning he brought the changes in a new contract which we both signed. I appreciated this so much because I knew we both understood the changes. There was some money involved and I understood exactly what that would be. Chris has a work ethic like no one who has ever done work for us before. He treated the work at our home like it was his own. He is as picky and detailed as I am. He was present at our home each morning when the work was started and each afternoon when it ended...and several times each day in between... checking on it. If something was not to his liking, he had the men redo it. By that I mean that to the average person, it would
have looked fine, but Chris has high standards and expects the best to be done by his men. His men were very polite and quite. I did not feel like I had to be home while they worked and although it was outside painting that was done, doors and windows had to be left unlocked. I never once worried about that. I even invited the men
to use our basement restroom while they were there and gave Chris a key so that if I was not home when they started work, he could unlock the window and doors they were working on that day. When the job was completed, the house looked great. Chris did a detailed check of our property and he felt the painters had not cleaned well enough and put things back right, so he had them right back out here. Let me just say again, he has a work ethic like no one we've ever used before. Although we had him repair rotted wood and
paint, we will definitely use him again in the future for what ever project we might want done. Thank you, Chris, for a well done!
