    I hired Brian to install crown moulding in all rooms of a 6 year old, 4 bedroom, 2500 square foot home in Charter Colony, Midlothian, VA. In addition, I also hired him to install moulding around a custom recessed home theater projector screen, and faux shadow box in the formal dining room. The installation took Brian only a couple days for the entire project.

    The end result was beyond my expectations! Not only did it take less time that I expected, but I was thoroughly impressed with the finished project! I experienced excellent communication with Brian during the entire process, and he even followed up afterwards to be sure I was still satisfied even long after he completed the project. He was punctual, kept the home clean during the project, and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards. He is extremely knowledgable about his line of work, and was fully equipped with all the professional equipment needed to perform his work. I have had other contractors in the home for other projects since he completed his work, and they have all quickly noticed his work without pointing it out, and all of them have said they have never that high level of quality of work with anyone, and even asked for his contact information.

    I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to add any kind of trim work to their home. It has been almost a year since he completed the project, and I have not had any issues with his work (and I can't say that about other work that has been done inside our home). I have taken pictures of his work and sent it to him to post for others to view.

    Thank you Brian! You treated our house as more than just another house, you treated it as our home. I can't thank you enough!

    Brian replaced all of our railings / ballusters with new wrought-iron. Price was great, workmanship was outstanding. Brian was a pleasure to work with and look forward to doing more work with him in the future

    Brian from The Finishing Company installed crown molding in a spare bedroom. He did an outstanding job. Corners are lined up perfect! Also, he was very neat with cleanup and careful of the furniture and floors. I would highly recommend him!
