When we moved into our new home almost six years ago, I told you I was on the "five year plan." My goal was to have the entire house repainted inside and out in that time.
With your help, it's done!! Though I have thanked you along the way as various projects have been completed, I want you to know that each room gives me great pleasure-not only for the colors and wallpapers-but for the quality of the workmanship, which is so apparent. Compliments abound as guests come and go, and I always mention your name.
Remember some of these "highlights?" My hall wallpaper was delicate; it tore easily. I'm still not sure how you managed to get it up intact, but it looks great and the seams are invisible. After taking the chair rail off in the dining room, you had to make new ends for my window sill. The stain matches perfectly and the paint on the radiator matches the stain. Well done. My three bathrooms were a challenge. One wallpaper had imperfections. You were so kind to set up your table and go through at least a dozen rolls to find enough unblemished panels to paper the lavatory. You knew how badly I wanted to use that paper!! You took mirrors off the wall in another, then repaired and painted. The list of your accomplishments here and your kindness along the way could go on and on.
Please know that I respect your work and your work ethic. I am so appreciative of your advice on rooms in my home and on my do-it-yourself projects. You have been so generous with your time and expertise. Many thanks for all that you have done, and I look forward to working with you in the years to come.
Jamie and I wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you and your crew did painting our house. Please don't hesitate using us as a reference. We look forward to seeing you in the spring to paint our exterior. Please send a quote at your convenience.
Regards....Jamie and Steve
Many thanks to Robert and his crew for a job well done on the interior and exterior of our house. Not only did they do great work, but they were efficient and did an excellent job cleaning up at the end of each day (I have a 2 year old son, so this was very important to me). Everyone on the crew was extremely friendly and trustworthy, which made the painting process much easier for our family. I will definitely call on them again for our future painting needs.
Thanks very much,
Thanks for the beautiful job you did on the bedrooms and the whole place. Wallpapering is a true art and you are a true artist. It's great to find someone who is meticulous and careful and takes such pride in his work. I also appreciate that you show up on time and work diligently until the job is done and clean up perfectly. Whenever I have more wallpapering to do, I will definitely call on you.

If you have longed for the "good old days" when people you hired to work in your home were people of integrity, honesty, knowledge, and skill-who took pride in their work and a job well done and believed in customer satisfaction above all-then Robert Durand should be on the top of your call list. For 15 years or more Robert has painted, papered, repaired walls, and even done small, related carpentry jobs to enhance the final product in my home. He not only applies paint and paper, he KNOWS paint and paper. Robert also understands that in his profession, prep work is the key to a beautiful finish. No skimping, no shortcuts, no mess left at the end of each day-just quality service and a quality outcome-all for a fair price.
Robert Durand is quite a guy, he has the most incredible eye for seeing things that need to be done,for impeccable painting He is the absolute only one Whom I will call. Robert has become a special friend, he is someone on whom I can depend, it is a pleasure to write on his behalf.
P.S... He has the most contagious laugh.
I just want to say thank you and tell you how much I absolutely love my new bathroom.I thought I was going to have to totally gut the entire room to achieve the look I wanted, but that was not the case at all. Removing the wallpaper - which you most likely put up many years ago - and painting the walls in the wide striping was amazing. The colors are perfect, the stripes are exactly even and the bathroom looks completely different. And even though your crew also did my hallways, trim and doors, they left my house neat and clean every day. It didn't look like anyone had been working there at the end of the day. If anyone ever wants to see any of your work, especially painting in stripes, please feel free to call me. I'd be happy to show them. Seriously, the old wallpaper made me want to close the door, but now I walk by and turn on the light to look at it and it makes me smile. I can't wait to do the next one - start thinking of colors!
Hopefully talk to you soon -
