Mike Barth and Co. ( Amazing... ) recently completed a paintjob at my condo ( in conjunction with other work ) that lasted about a month. I found his work to be quite meticulous and professional- he used high quality paint and showed real attention to detail.
Furthermore, while he had many suggestions as to colours, he was primarily concerned with making sure the owner's desires ( mine ) as to colour choices were paramount. So he worked effectively to please his client. I found him to be creative in fulfilling his mission, so that I could count on him to make decisions on his own that enhanced the final outcome- for example, he shaded walls slightly differently to take in account lighting conditions and achieved a more beautiful overall effect. I had asked him to stain some of my kitchen cabinetry as a touch up repair- we had not discussed the colour and I was away at the time, yet when I returned to my place after this job was done- I found his choice of colour of the stain to superb, and I am very happy with the look.
Mike can be relied on to make independent aesthetic decisions or suggestions- and I can see this to be a real plus, especially if you are uncertain or conflicted as to colour schemes, or maybe if you don't want to be too intimately involved in every choice and decision yourself. He also chose some really nice accent pieces ( such as face-plates ) for me.
In addition to painting he repaired some drywall and installed baseboards- excellently done work.
The workers he had working for him were very nice and co-operative people who did a fine job too.
Overall I have high praise for Mike and crew for high quality work and have no hesitation in recommending him and his company for your painting project.
