Peter was one of several painters I contacted for a quote. He
immediately set himself apart by quickly making time to come by and do an in-person estimate of the space. I had made an appointment with another painter to do the same, but they couldn't come by for another few days. Another painter did the quote by email, and quoted me $2K!!! A fourth painter quoted via text and although the quote was reasonable, they seemed iffy on the repair work that also had to be done in order for the paint job to work out.
Once I met Peter, I immediately felt like I was dealing with an
intelligent, professional person who knew his stuff. I felt confident
just having him in the house sharing his opinions on the state of our
rental. He told us about some serious issues we weren't aware of that we can now to bring to the attention of our landlords.
Peter quoted us a great price that included all of the repair work I
had wanted. He also painted the baseboards, assuring us it would make all the difference, and it did! He also went above and beyond, doing things like moving some shelves for us that were not well placed in the kitchen (see photo), fixing doorknobs, painting in the window wells (see photo), and putting covers on exposed outlets. He left the place clean and tidy. It literally looked like a new apartment when he was done.
Another major selling point was that originally, Peter had said he was not free until later in the month. After he saw the place, he said
he'd probably be able to squeeze us in that very week and indeed he did. Peter was prompt in all communication and follow-up and asked me to let him know if any of the painting required touching up.
Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to call Peter again and would and will be
sure to recommend him for anyone needing efficient, well-priced,
competent and professional painting and repair.
