I tried to contact a number of painters for this project but had difficulty getting a response.I must assume it was a very busy period. I spoke with Sokol and arranged an appointment. He did not arrive at what I had recorded as the scheduled time but did show up at my door over a week later, which he had recorded as the date. He quoted the job. As I could not get a response from anyone else we went ahead.
They were timely, worked thoroughly and quietly throughout the three days that were scheduled, completing the job on time. I was concerned, when at the start of the walk through, Sokol stated that I should remember that no job is perfect. I thought this was a very odd position to be taken by a professional.
On quick inspection the job looks very good. He did a very nice job of repairing flaws and nail pops and reaching very hard to get at areas. The over all application of the treatments are smooth and even through out. However, there are a number of places where paint has been dropped on to the baseboard, the tile floor, and even on newly installed carpet.
In some places the paint is very thin and the old paint shows through while in others the new paint has strokes onto adjacent surfaces that were not being painted. And simple attention to detail - electrical wall plates had all the correct number and colour of screws before they started, but now but now several are missing and are mis-matched.
This is the first company that we have chosen through Homestars with which we have been disappointed.
