Don and his team made an excellent suggestion for a Venetian finish on the ceiling which turned out beautiful.

It should have taken only one day but we asked for extra recessed lightening so they had to come back another day. They do an excellent job and they clean everything up. Crew is very pleasant and are on time and very efficient. We are extremely happy.

Very efficient team did the work. Removed the popcorn ceiling from all the rooms in the house, then hand applied a very nice Venetian Lace texture. Cleaned up very well - 8 hours in and out.

Excellent job. On time, got right to work and cleaned up afterward. I have one light that isn't working but I'm working with the painter who is going to fix. I'd absolutely recommend this Company.

The crew was on time, very professional, did a fantastic job! Removed popcorn from ceilings, patched water damage, installed 6 recess lights, textured all ceilings beautifully! Crew was very pleasant and know their skills well. I highly recommend this company to anyone! I am a very happy customer!

Don's team removed the hideous drop ceiling with florescent, installed recessed lights and retextured my kitchen. It looks great. Scraped patched and retextured ceilings throughout the house and installed 27 recessed lights. Also patched and repaired some old wall damage. The work was perfect, they were meticulous, fast, and did a great job cleaning up. Even mopped my floor. My husband (perfectionist) checked their work including all the wiring and junctions in the attic and was very pleased. They were on time, professional and polite. I am thrilled and will be scheduling an upcoming job with them. The crew was Tony, Scott, Joseph, Dave, Antonio and Michael.

The crew that came out was as professional as can be. The quote we were given was less than clear. We understood that the painter was going to come two days later after the ceiling was scraped. When we call to confirm, we were told no you need to set it up. When we contacted the painter he was unable to come for another week. There was stuff to clean off of the walls and popcorn ceiling leftovers in the flower beds. We are having to hire another painter to come in and complete the job.
Response by Don's Ceilings & Walls, Inc.: Hi John, thank you for bringing to our attention that there was mess left over and an issue with scheduling the painter. We apologize for the issue with the painter. That was unfortunate. Someone in our office just dropped the ball on that and I cannot apologize enough. You brought the mess to my attention immediately after the project was completed. I offered to have my crew turn around and come back without hassling you at all. You said it was unnecessary and said they were great and you loved the project. My crew walks the job with every customer at the end of the day to make sure everything is good.

Spoke to Don when setting up my appointment. He was very nice, informative and detailed on the process and items they offered. But when the appointment day came the guys he sent weren't really informed about what I wanted and what other items to offer me as they didn't come out to quote me before setting up the appointment. I had requested the removal of my popcorn ceilings as well as installing electrical in my ceiling for 3 ceiling fans to be installed later on and also two new recessed lighting to be added into my kitchen counter sitting area. When they installed my ceiling fan electrical they installed only one metal electrical box and support brackets and the other two installed were plastic. They knew ceiling fans would be installed which needs good support as they're heavy and move so why would they put plastic instead of metal ones? Causing the fans to not be stable and shake while on. I didn't learn this until a month later when I got my fans installed by my dad. But another issue was when they patched the holes they needed to make to install the electrical for the fans. They did a horrible job with matching the rest of the existing wall texture. I had to call them back out to fix it. Do you think I want to call them back a third time to install the right boxes to support my ceiling fans??? And yes, the fans are installed correctly as the only one that has the metal box doesn't shake whatsoever. And when there was a difference of texture from my kitchen to the dining room they didn't float out the line so it blended better. There is an awful blunt line going down my ceiling where their work meets the existing flat kitchen ceiling texture. When I asked if they can blend it out better when they came out the second time Don Jr said he didn't have time to do that and it wasn't originally included in the cost of the job I hired them to do. Come on! To just blend it out better is extra cost? I only gave them two stars because they actually got the job done but I wouldn't recommend them.
Response by Don's Ceilings & Walls, Inc.: Hi Vanessa, I appreciate your feedback. We stand by all of our work 100%. I would like to offer a little bit of a response being that there are a few confusing details here. 1.) We have recently improved our processes to make sure our crew is more informed when they show up. (YAY!) 2.) There are properly rated junction boxes for ceiling fans that are both metal and plastic. I've seen 50lb lights hung from plastic boxes. It all depends on what type is used. The ones we use are rated for ceiling fan usage. If you'd like me to come out and verify, I'd be more than happy. If anything is out of order, then I will fix it. Fans wobble because there is a balancing kit that comes with them that can take hours sometimes to balance your fan with. This is a tedious process, but not doing this shouldn't mean that we get a bad review from you. 3.) You are right, some of the patch work was poorly done. You called me and I came out myself to fix it right away. You were thrilled with my work when I left. I remember and I wouldn't have left if you hadn't told me you were completely satisfied. Everybody makes mistakes so it's not fair to expect perfection 100% of the time. But as soon as you had an issue, we were there and made it right. That is what a quality contractor does. We stand behind all of our work. 4.) The difference in texture in your kitchen and dining room was something you asked me about when I showed up to fix the patches. You were asking me to just "throw in" texturing your whole kitchen ceiling. That is a lot of work to make sure it's done right. I told you that it'd be an extra fee because you never requested to have your kitchen ceiling re-textured and that I didn't have time that day to get that done. You were outraged by that so I made sure to touch up the dividing line in such a way that it looked a lot better. When you came back to review my work, you said it looked great and you were "much more happy with everything now". We are a fantastic company and we do fantastic work. You can see that by my hundreds of happy customers and 30 years in business with an A+ rating by the Better Business Bureau. I stand by all of my work 100% and I am happy to come by again to go over everything with you, just give me a call.
