"Our house was overdue for a paint job. I was nervous about the process because this was the first time we'd ever had a home painted. I found this website and advertised what I needed. I received a handful of interested parties willing to come out and look at my home to give me an estimate. Lucinda, from Gafco, came out to look at our home. We had an old run-down deck that had needed to be removed and a few pieces of siding that needed replacing due to a leak above the window. I asked her to give me two separate estimates, one for painting and one for the deck removal/siding repair. She retreated to her car and returned immediately with the best prices I could have ever hoped for. Didn't take long to decide to hire Gafco to do the work we needed. I went to the office on Monday to sign the contract and put down my 50%. Spent a lot of time calling Lucinda, the office manager, because I had so many questions. She was so friendly and there with an answer every time I needed her.
They started on Tuesday with the pressure washing. We had a lot of peeling paint, so it took a couple of days to get all of the scraping and priming done. With the deck, we were worried that the leak might have caused damage inside the wall, which would relate to more work and the price going up. We talked with Erik, the owner, about this and he assured us that when he got in and could see what was happening, he would stop and let us know what we were up against before we went any further. This was very relieving. The deck turned out to not be a big deal. It was removed, the siding replaced, flashing was added above the windows where it had not been when built, which caused the leak. The whole crew arrived early Friday morning to paint our house. What a great group of guys! They were all very friendly and respectful. Erik had us walk around with him at least 5 times to make sure they didn't miss anything, and to point out anything we thought needed to be touched up. When they were all done, we were left with a beautifully painted home and a clean yard.
I will definitely be recommending this company to everyone I know who is looking for a job well done at an excellent and affordable price. They are top-notch!
