I picked him out of the yellow pages and he set me up with a free estimate. When he came to look he also gave me a reference sheet. I contacted about 3 of the 10 numbers provided (all the other ones were no longer in service) and they said he was ok. I figured it wouldn't be so bad because it was a simple job. The tiles look amazing (after Rona contractors screwed it up royally-see other review), but the painting... he insisted on doing it so we let him. The wall to be painted was about 3'x4' with a mirror in the middle and a light bar on top. He painted around the mirror, got paint on the mirror (which by the way comes off in 2 seconds had he asked or tried to move it) AND he broke our light fixture. As if that's not bad enough, he didn't tell us, but instead glued it back in place!!!
