This review is long overdue. Living in Toronto all my life, I have a used Homestars on numerous occasions to find contractors for various projects, and always with great success.
Two years ago, I had to sell my Father's house in a very short timeline. The 2 story, 1700 sq foot house which was located in Peterborough, needed some sprucing up at 22 years, but I was not familiar with contractors in the Peterborough area. I was thrilled to find Advantage House Painters Inc. on Homestars, with a good rating, and advertising work in the Peterborough area.
I made an appointment with Chris, and we went through the house together, discussing the wallpaper, heavy furniture, nail holes, and timelines. He provided me with a detailed written estimate in two parts; one price if I removed the wallpaper myself of the price if they removed the wallpaper. (I removed the wallpaper).
Chris was able to commit to the timelines I had, and was even able to make a couple of small ammendments to the contract that we had touched upon during our inital meeting in the winter. Chris, Derek, & Jason also provided some great insight to colour selection which received positive feedback from various Real Estate Agents.
Overall I was very pleased with Chris, Derek & Jason, the workmanship, attention to detail, customer service, and price. I told Chris that my own house will need painting soon and that I will be calling on his services again.
