Walter and team were amazing. They ensured their work area was clean after each day of work. Their faux walls are a beautiful sight every time we come home. Very respectful and very good at explaining what they are doing at each stage. I cannot wait for them to come complete more work in the house. I will definitely recommend them to other friends and family.

Honest advice, no unnecessary upselling. Great job at a reasonable price!
We asked Walter to improve the look of our kitchen by painting the kitchen cabinets. Walter and Max came in and did an excellent job.
Our kitchen has stainless steel appliances and with the cabinet color they suggested it looks very upscale now. They also painted the Front
and Garage doors which now look as good as new. I also asked Max to touch up some spots on our living room ceiling, he did it for us without
any additional charges. Great people to have at our house for renovations!!

They were very polite, on time, cleaned up everything very well and were willing to do additional touch ups and go an extra mile to please. I would definitely use them again.
