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 -
My wife and I want to thank you and your crew for the fantastic job you did painting the interior of our newly purchased house. The home is 50+ years old and you have transformed the old and worn surfaces into a brand new home. We had some basic ideas of what we wanted to do and you helped us figure it out. It was clear from the start that your goal was to get the best finished product. We changed paint colors along the way, electricians put holes in finished walls and ceilings, wood floor refinishing blocked you out, but you always accommodated the situation. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others. You were a pleasure to work with and you exceeded all of our lofty expectations. When the time comes, we hope to see you again for some exterior work
All the best.

We are absolutely thrilled with your work inside and out on our new (to us) home. You have completely transformed our entire house while maintaining the historical accuracy of our 1932 home. The detailed trim work, especially around our beautiful original windows, is most impressive. It is a delight to walk down the street toward our house and just to admire that this is in fact our home.
Most importantly, you were wonderful to work with. You were always available via phone or email to offer information and even guidance on tough decisions regarding colors and trim work. Every member of your staff was polite, courteous and professional. Each time we modified or added to the plan, you responded immediately and positively to our evolving ideas. As to the inside, our original intent, as you know, was to have you paint only one room. After seeing the work that you completed, we had you paint more than half our house inside with more to come! We also appreciated your work on the screened-in porch, which included taking down an old ceiling fan and installing the new one, including the new switch.
Thank you also for your suggestion to strip our painted brick fireplace in order to restore it to the original. That small detail worked a total transformation in our living room. Similarly, you noticed that our deck could be integrated better into the house by being sanded and painted (for a very affordable price). This has made a world of difference in ensuring a good flow between the outside and inside spaces.
Our favorite thing, however, was probably that even though the job was already completed, you returned a few days later to personally hang our new front lights that had arrived late from the manufacturer. That type of attention to detail and pride in your finished product is rare these days. We have recommended you, and will continue to recommend you, to everyone looking for a reliable, professional, fair-priced, high-quality painter. Thank you!

P.S. Please feel free to share a picture of our house on your website.
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.
