Interior Painting

We were really happy with the work from Tom and his team. From showing up on time and finishing the job in a timely manner, to executing all the finer details we requested, we would 100% recommend them to our friends and family. We benefitted from their expertise as our trim was painted in oil, which we did not know! All the painting was done with precision, patching is smooth and they left our home very tidy.

Thank you so much Lindsay for the kind words! Your job was very rewarding and challenging with all the details. Your fireplace and bookshelves are amazing and a testament to your abilities as an interior designer, it should be in a magazine!

Cheers and give us a ring when you are ready for your next project.

Indoor painting, a 2 bedrooms apartment. A lot of repairs on the walls had to be done.

The work was of high quality, professional. It was planned for 2 days of work and 2 days it was. No trouble, all perfect. A lot of holes were to be repaired on the walls and it was all done meticulously and perfectly. In resume, it was the best I could expect from a painting company.

Staircase, entry, halls, bathroom, bedroom painting

Tom responded to our initial inquiry even though he was on vacation at the time. He was the first to show up to provide a quote. He was on time, polite, knowledgeable and ready to start as soon as we were available. We had some other companies provide quotes, but we were impressed by Tom's attitude and promise that the job would be done in a single day.

Tom was very responsive to our questions online. We just got a good gut feeling about him and decided to go with his company.

The job, which was a pretty big one, was a single day as Tom had estimated. It turned out to be a bigger job than expected because they needed a third coat of paint, but that didn't stop them from finishing in time.

Our house looks and feels almost like new. Tom's people did an incredible job. They patched some holes and rough spots, painted everything accurately, and didn't leave a single drop of paint on our floors.

We would not hesitate to hire Tom again in the future whenever we need another paint job. We will definitely recommend him to our friends and hope that this review will help other Homestars users choose his company, as well.

Painting

Tom and his crew did a great job! We had a lot of patching and painting to do after relocating a number of electrical outlets, and a number of rooms that needed touchups, and their work was seamless.

Interior House Painting

Tom painted two levels of our split level home - it was a big job, lots of issues came up. Tom and crew did a great job. We noticed a few little things missed, after job was done and fully paid. I called Tom and everything was taken care of right away. Tom also painted a few rooms in my new house - great job - it looks terrific. Tom was very responsive throughout, answering calls or emails quickly. So important when you're getting this kind of work done. It can be very stressful if you don't hear back quickly. Never a problem with Tom! He was very knowledgeable, gave good advice, and got everything done in a timely way. Thanks Tom!

Interior Painting Job

Tom did a painting job for us that included the removal of wallpaper in 3 rooms, repairing a lot of damage on our walls and then painting almost all surfaces throughout our 2000+ sqft home. Not only did Tom make the process as painless as possible but he also did a fantastic job on all the required work and offered us a great price. I recommend Tom to anyone looking for a painter that will do an excellent job at a great price.

Wallpaper removal, wall patching, full house interior paint (walls, trim)

Tom is extremely responsive (replied to emails within the hour if not sooner), reliable (ensured our job was finished on time and according to budget despite some pretty major obstacles that were out of his control), and ensured the quality of his work - and that of his team - was high. Our home was transformed as a result. Also worth noting is that he was very attentive to what we asked for, but also offered his advice (where appropriate) which was deeply appreciated. At the end of the job my husband and I noticed a few areas still in need of attention and Tom was very quick to respond to make sure we were happy. I would definitely work with Tom again!
