Project: Paint or Stain Interior Surfaces
Richard is a MASTER at his profession. He did a beautiful job removing very old wallpaper, restoring the walls finishing with an outstanding paint job. The bathroom looks fantastic. We couldn't be happier and would hire Richard again for our home improvement needs. His work ethic is very hard to find. A high quality person doing high quality work. Can't thank him enough.

Review by in West Long Branch, NJ
Richard was extremely thorough and did an excellent job prepping my walls for interior paint with an eggshell finish. I cannot be more pleased with the outcome. Not only was his work of high quality, but he was prompt, dependable, and provided an extremely fair price for the work he did. I would absolutely recommend him to friends and family for future work.

Review by in Philadelphia, PA
We were fortunate enough to find and work with Richard on our new home in Philadelphia. even though he's based in NYC - Richard is the man and drove 2-3 hours (each way) to help work on our job. Richard was a true professional in every sense of the word and, once everything was finished, even came back down on a Sat (free of charge- WHO DOES THAT!??!) to touch up a couple of areas that needed a little more love. All in all my man went above and beyond to ensure we were happy, the job was completed to our satisfaction, and cleaned up properly. I enjoyed his company as well when I worked from home a couple of days as he is easy to talk with and offers great conversation. If you are looking for a reliable, trustworthy, hardworking hombre to help get your corners/lines perfect, walls and ceilings glistening, trim popping - Accentuate Walls should be your first call. Thanks again Richard for your Professionalism, hard work, and attention to details.

Review by in New York, NY
You'd be hard pressed to find better painters than Richard and his team for what they charge. They stripped peeling paint off my walls and ceiling, then plastered and repainted them. They definitely knew what they were doing. I needed someone on relatively short notice and Accentuate was happy to accommodate. Richard was punctual, delivered on the timeline he promised, and was personable throughout. Highly recommended!
Response by Accentuate Walls: John L was a great customer to work for. He made it clear what he wanted and was helpful in getting us the information we needed to get the job done.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
When I first went over the job with Richard I was afraid he'd come in too high. I was delightfully surprised when his estimate was actually lower than the others I received, as there was no question in my mind that he would do the best job. In addition to the requested work (painting my 2 bedroom apt), he "threw in" some other work for free -- including repairing a knick in the front door and cleaning the decking on the balcony. He worked to my schedule and was painstaking, thorough, and clean.

Project: Repair Drywall
Richard is a high-quality worker and person. Very nice to have in our home, positive, innovative, and trustworthy. I highly recommend him for all interior work. He repaired the cieling in our bedroom perfectly, fixed a large crack in the built in wood bookcases in another bedroom, and fixed the ceiling in the foyer.

Richard takes great pride in his craft and is very knowledgeable of all that was needed to repair and paint. He stayed true to his estimated timeframe and left the place very clean. His price was very fair for the quality of work delivered and attention to detail in my pre-war apt.

Richard was great. He and his crew were very professional. He wanted to do the job right not just rush in, and rush out, and get paid. He takes a lot of pride in what he does, and his attention to detail is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a painting contractor.

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
