I have the time since I work from home and work has been slow, so I volunteered to paint our kitchen..10 X 16. My hubby changed his mind midway through the painting, so I had to change color. Took 3 days. I did most of the painting and he painted and did some touch up work. We spent $126 in paint and supplies which included primer, ceiling paint, primer, three colors, semi gloss for trim and chair rail, assorted brushes, roller covers, and drop cloths. After all was said and done, it looks really good.
I am a Handyman and I do pretty much all types of fixing, including painting. On this month I had a lady called me for a bid. 19 interior doors with cases included both sides, one exterior door (just one side) and, about 400 sqf of baseboard. My bid was for 1000.00 custumer will buy the paint.My question is, was I too expensive or way cheap?. Considering that she lives in that house and I have to cover up all the things she has in it. Plus I will use my sprayless. Thank you for your help folks#!
"A superb paint job for my family room and kitchen area. It's like I have a new home. I was so sick of the dull colors I had on the walls for several years. What a wonderful experience to see how new my 15 year old home has a wonderful, bright, clean look. Then, the next job was countertops of granite in my out-of-date kitchen. Wow! It is a brand new kitchen - everything I ever wanted. M. Guerrero and his employees did a masterpiece of a job on my new, beautiful countertops. I am extremely happy with the work. These men are absolute experts in their field. I will be calling on them, again, in the future."
Some service pros are employees, franchisees, dealers or independent contractors ("Corporate SP's") of larger national or "Corporate Accounts".

I have no workman's comp or liability insuerance, so I charge a little less than the going rate (but not too much less). I an limited to working weekends and nights because of my day job. But otherwise, I try to be very flexible with all my customers. I also explain everything that I can to them about the process, and why certain steps should be taken.
Appliance delivery guys put a 1 inch gouge in my recently painted 15 foot foyer wall and really hacked up the base rail. Does the entire wall have to be repainted or can the gouge be repaired and blended. Wall was painted 10 months ago? Any thoughts on pricing to repair gouges in base rail with epoxy and repaint? It’s another 8 ft long and is 8” x 1” pine, painted white. Thx.
Hired a pro to paint interior and exterior of my house. It was new construction. Outside is approx. 50% board and batten, also had cedar beams inside and out on porches. Outside was 3000 and inside was 8000. this included prime and paint all base, doors, closets and cabinets. All paint and stain was Sherwin Williams, high quality stuff. I highly recommend getting pros you dont have to bird dog and punch over and over! May cost a little more initially, but you'll be alot happier with the results!!
"What an absolute joy to work with this company. The Owner/Operator is both an artist and a consummate professional. We needed multiple projects as we were renovating a 60+ year old home while moving in. One project required Judit to integrate five disparate pieces of furniture to accommodate a dining room table we were importing from Sweden. She visited the showroom an inspected the floor model of the table and with that alone she perfectly matched all five pieces (corner china closet, low boy, sideboard, and two chairs) into a flawless dining room where she integrated modern, transitional and mission style furnishings within a singular, sleek presentation. Everyone that we entertain thinks we bought the pieces as a set. Secondly we had a beautiful maple sofa table that I attempted to stain. We needed the table for our entryway. Judit brainstormed a chalk paint solution that retained the beautiful table top but added a modern flair to the body of the table that matched both our extensive artwork and decor. Finally, we decided we wanted to update our kitchen but retain its' character. Judit faux distressed our cabinets and drawers mixing colors to create an aesthetic effect that pulls color from our Brazilian granite counter tops and restored flooring. She went further then just faux painting, she sanded, patched and repaired the old cabinets to ensure they were smooth and renewed. She even stained an island we built along one wall so that it provides contrast to the room. Now our kitchen is exceptionally unique and beautiful. We love older homes and this is our fourth renovation. This is bar none the most professional and exceptionally beautiful work I've had the pleasure to witness. Judit's talent, eye for beauty, and artistic skill as well as warm personality made what seemed impossible, exceptional. We can't express how grateful we are to have found A&J Decoration Restoration."
