I contacted divine empire painters. Shamsher attended my home quickly and gave me a quote of $700 then changed it saying that price did not include paint, so it would be closer to $800. Despite this little bump, he called me shortly after leaving my home advising that it would be $700 including paint. As I was deciding on painters, he contacted me to advise that his availability had changed and he would not be available the original dates I needed, but that if I hired him sooner than I had planned, he would only charge $500. The other quote I was able to get was for $900 so price was it was excellent. In addition, he was proactive in staying in touch with me and booking the final date for painting. He was able to send me documentation by text message and was able to show me certification for working at heights (this was a two storey paint job). On the date of painting, he was only a few minutes late and had an assistant. He was efficient and sanded, filled and painted the area agreed upon within the time frame agreed upon (around 5-6 hours). Shamsher listened to my questions and concerns at the end and re did the areas I asked about. The final product looks great. The painting took place a few weeks ago and so far so good.
