We recently put our condo on the market and the deck desperately needed some attention. Unfortunately, it's still winter and often wet outside. While Chris recommended painting during the summer/dry time of year, he took this project on knowing that we needed improvement now. I had him and several others bid on the project and Chris was the best by far, which actually made me a little leery. I could tell Chris was watching the weather reports because he contacted me a couple of times with gentle reminders that we had a couple of dry days coming. Another thing about Chris is that he will communicate using YOUR preferred way of communicating.....email, phone, in person. Chris was amazingly on the ball, getting the deck, porch and other pressure washing done in a week. Because we no longer live at the condo, all this was done without our ever meeting in person or dealing with his crew in person. He invoiced via email at the end of the job with the agreed upon price and I sent a check once we checked out the work. It couldn't have been easier.
The only thing that confused me was at the beginning when I received a Thumbtack email that we had hired Chris for the job, when we hadn't yet. There was also some confusion via email that led me to think the project was being started before we agreed to it but I think the email was sent to the wrong person. In the end, it all worked out as far as I'm concerned. I would highly recommend (in fact, I already have) and won't hesitate to call on Chris again. Great work!
