Painting of Basement Apartment

Ismail from Ish's Finishes is very professional and helpful. I hired him to paint our basement apartment the walls of which were a pale yellow. My tenant initially wanted the walls painted white. Ismail had already given me a quote. But my tenant later changed his mind. He said he wanted an off-white for the walls instead. I still wanted all the doors, doorways, window frames, closet doors and baseboards painted white. The scope of the job had changed. Ismail was flexible enough to give me a different quote and proceed with the job as my tenant is moving in immediately. On the first day, Ismail dropped off all the supplies he would need for the job: primer; white paint for all the trim; special paint for the closet doors; and caulking to seal all visible gaps the doorways and window sills so that everything would look entirely seamless. He also brought paint chips and together we chose a colour for the walls. Ismail painted my apartment over the course of three days. He put three coats of paint everywhere—on all the walls; doors; doorframes, window sills and closet doors. He even fixed the cracked kick plate in my bathroom with caulking before painting it. He sealed holes in the wall where pictures and paintings had hung. It was only after Ismail had applied the third coat of paint in the apartment that I noticed the kick plate under the kitchen counter was in very bad shape. Ismail had actually noticed it. He said, "It's very badly damaged. It needs to be replaced. That's why I didn't paint it." However I have no time to hire a handyman to fix the kick plate before the tenant moves in. I asked Ismail if he would mind painting the badly damaged kick plate. He very graciously obliged. I inspected the apartment. Ismail had swept up the dust and left behind a very tidy workspace. More importantly, though, Ismail's work is impeccable! He's clearly a master painter who is very thorough and takes great pride in his work. The apartment looks so much brighter and lovelier now! I'm thoroughly pleased with Ismail's work. I would highly recommend Ish's Finishes for any painting job you want done.
