Homeowner on Angie’s List: “Professional, hard working, responsive and did excellent work”

They did an excellent job. They had come highly recommended by neighbors whose paint job we admired.

From the initial meeting, Justin, the owner was our point person and he was extremely knowledgeable and responsive throughout the process, not just in making the initial pitch. Even after the job he made sure that all last touch-ups were done to our satisfaction.

His crew was prompt every morning, pleasant, willingly did anything we asked, from shifting cars in the driveway so we could all park, to sweeping up each day. We have a koi pond and they took great care to tent this so that no debris or paint spray would reach the fish.

When there were any questions, they asked to make sure they were doing exactly what we wanted (complicated paint color scheme for example). Justin provided 2 hours initially of consultation with a colorist that was included in his bid.

Throughout the process, he and his crew were professional, hard-working, responsive, and did excellent work. Terrific!


Work Description

There was some paint prep work done to strip the exterior in particularly bad patches prior to Shepard coming in to paint. Then, over about 4 weeks, they painted the entire exterior of our house which was a very complicated job. It’s an old Queen Ann Victorian with 4 stories, on the National Register of Historic Places, and we used 5 different colors in different parts of the wood siding and trim. They spent a long time getting all the prep just right so then the actual painting went easily. They also helped arrange for window cleaning at the end of the job.
