About this pro

Hi there, We offer clean, professional work and the benefit of one stop contracting as we also include professional plastering, carpentry and specialized coating/staining and window replacements/instalation for our painting clients. I also provide 24hr/7 day and emergency services for clients that need serious scheduling flexibility. Also, my top painter and I are Home Improvement Contrator licensed in MA and I can provide photos, references and discounted offers to our potential clients. -we are known to price quite reasonably. Lastly I have 20 years+ experience painting in New England and I enjoy what I do very much. Thank you for viewing

The look on our customers faces when they see the transformation of their space. I still love the compliments and letters.  A client recently gave my guys and I a cash tip before we were even done. Painting can be very rewarding as it is the most visanle of all the trades.

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

We like to walk through your project if possibly but, its not mandatory as people lead busy lives. Photos or a description over the phone can often provide the info I need, then I email an itemized estimate -no obligation.   I also offer free consultation with color layouts as Im formally trained in interior design. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Im formally trained by Tri-County tech, have taking course in using new none VOC products with Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore. Im lead certified and gained years of experience working for two other companies before embarking on my own.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

I price by the room and can break down cost by labor vs material, ceiling vs trim etc.

How did you get started in this business?

I started by painting my grandmothers garage when I was in high school. 

What types of customers have you worked with?

All types and classes of folks. We work with high end properties to low income. We work with realtors with time contraints to on-going projects with processes. 90% of my clients are repeat customers.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

My son got into a great school. :)

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Ask for references and proof of insurance. Posessing HIC (MA home improvement contractor)cert is a plus.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

I would advise thinking through your colors. Paint or have your painter apply several samples of your favorite colors right on the related walls. Colors are very important and can make all the difference combined with some clean proffesional prep. Its a huge plus when a client is really happy with the color choices. Its an extension of you and reflects your good taste ;). I also advise going a shade lighter as the chart will usually come across less dramatic than it will look when covering an entire room. Ive worked with countless interior designers and can help if requested at no extra charge.
