About this pro

How does your service stand out?

There is a sense of personal pride that I put into all my work and it's proven with the fantastic results. My due diligence to create portfolio quality paint jobs, drywall, and trim are instilled in me from growing up in a real estate family who taught me that the desired results are in the details and never compromise your integrity or the craft. I make sure that I am in consistent contact with a client to build a solid relationship of trust, respect, and appreciation between all parties. It's the final touches that count, and I take it seriously. I am always efficient, however I do not rush a job. Many of my competitors bring in sub par and inexperienced employees to do their dirty work and it shows. I am hands on to make sure that the prep work is done thoroughly so that the finish work looks perfect. The guys I use, when necessary, take the same personal pride that I do in their work and it shows. That's why I put my name on the line, you get what you pay for.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Obviously getting paid for my services is great, and a man has to eat. However, the sincere appreciation that my clients feel and express to me, plus the personal satisfaction of turning their home into a warmer atmosphere that lasts for years, and raises their property value is what I take pride in most. That, and the personal relationships/friendships that are built from my professional attitude and the quality of work produced.

    Bedroom/bathroom remodel
    Drew helped with a major master bedroom/bathroom remodel project. He did an excellent job on framing, hanging and taping drywall, painting, trimwork, and siding (we moved two exterior windows). The end result was outstanding.

    He's the best!
    Drew was very professional, gave good advice and will be helping sell our rental with all of his ideas/repairs/updates. Highly recommend this guy. He is the real deal! Hard to find people like this anymore.

    Andrew Macdonald has done a number of projects for me and my wife at our home in North Seattle. He really know his craft and performs his work professionally each and every time. Whether for exterior or interior finishe work, we would highly recommend using Andrew each and every time.

    We are very pleased with the paint restoration job that Andrew completed for us last August. Our house has original 1915 siding and windows and had a very tired, weathered look. Andrew and his crew washed then prepped and painted our house to a perfect like new appearance. My husband and I were just talking today about having Andrew paint our son's house this coming summer.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
1. Build a level of trust. 2. Do my job to the best possible results 3. Bring fresh ideas to the project 4. Have fun doing the task at hand, It's not always possible. But keep a positive attitude in the face of any jobsite challenges. 5.Leave the client happier than they expected
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It really depends on the job. But I am currently $35 an hour. I will bid, but have to see the project.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My parents were both in real estate (retired), and I have been working on restoring and remodeling properties for their clients and their personal investment properties since I was in my late teens.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Go with your instinct. If you feel unsure or the slightest bit uncertain, there's a reason. When it comes to working on a client's home you need to feel confident and comfortable with that individual and his crew. This is your home, and most likely your biggest investment. I understand that, respect it, and want to earn your trust.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That it is not as easy as you'd think. You get what you pay for, and going on the extreme cheap will usually prove itself to be more expensive in the long run. You get one bad paint job and the amount of prep involved the next time to get it to the level of quality that I and most of my clients prefer is much more involved. Always do it right the first time.
