Our 30+ year old white stucco condo complex was in need of some serious TLC. We received quotes and opinions about restoration from at least 6 different companies (2 painting and 4 stucco experts). Derek Padgett was the most knowledgeable, professional, and flexible person who came out to our site and at the same time the most concerned about maintaining the integrity of our building. We ended up with only 2 quotes that we put forward for consideration, his and another highly reputable company. What set Padgett's apart at that stage was their ability to do full building maintenance including eaves and downspouts, flashing, masonry and stucco, window glazing ... the list goes on. After having Derek and his team working on our building we absolutely know we made the right choice. Derek and his team work with extreme care and with a meticulous attention to detail but he also came in on time and within budget. I am sure his interior work is as meticulous as his exterior work. He knows his stuff, ensures that all safety precautions are taken with his crew, is remarkably patient when dealing with his customers, and is all in all an excellent tradesperson. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him at all.
