Review by in New Kent, VA
used wrong paint and poor on trim
Response by Richard Bell: You,the reader,deserve more than 7 words: The project was 2300 sq.ft.,walls and trim. She was away most of the project. Day 1, I showed her husband samples of the paint I was using; no complaints. Two weeks and 15 rooms later, she said the trim color was all wrong(maybe 1% off)and I was expected to redo it all for free. At the time, they said it was not my fault, but the supplier's, that the color did not meet their expectations. They reduced their request to 7 rooms & I repainted them at 30% off. An unpleasant situation saw a fair compromise, I thought. 16 months later, she wrote the above.

Richard rates 5 stars on all counts, professionalism, responsiveness, quality of work and price. I was very happy with how my foyer looked after he painted it, there was no spatter or spills to clean up. I recommend Richard to anyone who is looking for a painter, and will happily call him in the future to come back for any additional painting jobs I may have. Sandy B. Chesterfield, VA

Review by in Hopewell, VA
One person trying to take on to much work . A two or three day job took almos two weeks. Trying to take time of from work . Changing my work schedule to fit when he is available not him fitting my schedule.
Response by Richard Bell: I always try to be approachable and I am always attentive to the client's needs. The above issues were not presented to me in person; in fact, he said he was pleased with the work. Months later, this review was posted, so I called to see how I could make it better. He was upset I called and refused to discuss the matter(s). I am still willing to discuss it if he chooses to do so.

We were very pleased with Mr.Bell's professionalism and more importantly his work. Mr. Bell did an excellent job with painting our kitchen and laundry room; the price quote was also the lowest that we had ran across as well. I would definitely encourage anyone who plans on doing a painting project to really consider this guy, he was great !!!

When I called, Richard was out that evening to look over the project at hand, which was to repair plaster, cracks and problem areas and then paint the ceilings, trim and walls in 7 rooms and two full hall ways. He had an estimate back to me within a day and began work when I said go. I was extremely happy with his estimate. Our house was built in 1912 and had high ceilings. He is a very conscientious worker, a very polite person, promp, and always let me know when he would and wouldn't be able to make it to my house. I even trusted him fully with a key to my house to come and go as he needed. He always cleaned up and left a neat area. What I really appreciated was the fact that when he walked in he was working until the time he walked out. I was really never sure if he ever ate, but he assured me he did. I would highly recomment Richard.
