Response by Accentuate Walls: Katie and her husband were kind enough to give me a review for the wallpaper installation and painting that I did in the nursery bedroom being prepared for the twins they are expecting. Despite some minor miscommunication on the actual wallpaper to be installed, the result turned out well. This was a somewhat challenging job because the wallpaper was sold in 24-in. by 48-in. sheets instead of the common rolls that are manufactured in square footage to allow full sheets to be aligned from the ceiling to the baseboard with no obvious seams. Overall the customer was satisfied and left us with a warm smile and a handshake.

Project: Paint or Stain Interior Surfaces
Rich from accentuate walls and I live in the same neighborhood. He has a passion for what he does. I was impressed with his ratings and reviews on HomeAdvisor and albums of work he showed me online. He was punctual, engaging and has a strong work ethic. He plastered and painted room better than I have ever seen. He did whatever he needed to do. I left to run errands but when I came back, it was all done. He did the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen. He got behind the stove, did the cabinets, and window sills, very good work. This guy is not an ordinary painter because he definitely knows what he does. In about a month we are going to do my living room and a few other projects. He went out of his way and did a little bit more, which I do appreciate rich.
Response by Accentuate Walls: Really enjoyed working for this man. He is a blue collar worker himself and knows what it is like to do manual labor. Had coffee ready. His apartment building is old and his apartment hadn't had any work done on it for many years, but it was worth the effort to see the final results. I look forward to working for him again.

Richard extremely skilled at his trade
Response by Accentuate Walls: Joel is a licensed painting contractor from Portland Maine, I heard about how skilled I was and asked if I would be willing to travel out of state to do some work on new construction, it was a pleasure working with him and his crew.

Richard did a great job with painting the walls in the rental I was moving into. He was very responsive to all my questions and was very accommodating with all the specific requests I had (I wanted to paint different walls in certain rooms). He was also very punctual and efficient and the paint looks great. Thanks!

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Richard did a great job with a tricky wall (there was wallpaper glue leftover, varying levels of paint that had come off), and charged me 1/3 of what the next painter was quoting. He got it done all in one day and overall the process was easy and the results look great.
Response by Accentuate Walls: I am pleased to have helped this customer and her mom, this was a challenging job because of the unfinished rough wallpaper removal from the previous person who attempted to plaster the walls smooth and not thoroughly removing all the wallpaper paste that had dried on the substrate. Oil based primer sealer stain block sealed in all porous areas and thoroughly skim coating all needed areas . Re-priming to seal all the porosity feather sanding smooth and using a premium Benjamin Moore latex flat in a linen white to match the existing other walls it came out perfect and was able To finish within one day with my expertise my strong work ethic.

Response by Accentuate Walls: Unfortunately this customer doesn't own, only rents and I guess I felt uncomfortable commenting on a place she doesn't own. I'm confident we met her expectations of quality service in value and privately thank her for posting a review.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Accentuate walls did a thorough assessment and took the time to get a detailed description of our needs. They were very friendly, personable, easy to work with, did the job at an excellent price, showed up when scheduled and finished on time. They went above and beyond and came back to make a small touch up to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the job. Thank you Accentuate Walls!
