  • I recently had Josemar Oliveira come out and remove wall paper from a house we bought that was built in 1851. The house had wall paper that has beed sitting on old horsehair plaster for over 30 years. Josemar did an excellent job in the removal and clean up. He also did all of the prep work in order to have the house ready for paint. He was on time, very nice, and did a wonderful job in the clean up. He did such a good job on the wall paper removal that I ended up hiring him to also do the inter
  • rior painting of the house which he is in the middle of doing right now. Josemar also referred me to a great carpenter who also put up some new crown moldings in the house. I feel very comfortable with Josemar and will hire him again in the future when the time comes to paint the outside of my house.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Jay is extremely knowledgeable, not just about painting but also other general contracting work, therefore he is conscientious of how the other work we had planned needed to fit in. He had great recommendations for some options we were evaluating on how to deal with a set of railings dividing the entry way from the living room as well as on the stairway. He advised painting the spindles only from his extensive experience with other painting projects, and doing a coat of poly on the handrails instead for a better grip texture, and the result was excellent. Will definitely consider Jay and Discovery again for future painting projects, as well as other general contracting projects.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Mr. Oliveira did an amazing job. I hired him for two projects. one where he painted my entire interior of townhouse and also the kitchen cabinets. Btw he was the only painter that said he would take off the cabinet doors to paint them. Everyone else said they would paint while the doors are attached...which would not yield a good result. Second project involved damaged from leaking water pipes...some tiling, plastering, painting and refinishing hardwood floors. Excellent job...very professional. And extremely trustworthy...he had my home keys for each project and no problems.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Jay's men arrived on time every day, were extremely polite and professional, and did a fantastic job. My walls were not in good shape and they repaired and prepped them so well they now look like New. I am very pleased with the job they did and believe the price charged was reasonable. I would definitely use this company again.

Review by in Milton, MA
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
My husband and I recently moved to Milton and we were in need for a Contractor pro for a large project for a our new home. We were looking for the right team to tackle a large interior painting job (kitchen cabinents, livingroom, dining room, trim, 3 bedrooms, etc.), skim coat the ceilings and sand and stain our floors. We interviewed 5 different Contractors and and J. Oliveira was the most thorough during our walk through and provided us with very helpful suggestions. He was also extremely professional as well as responsive with the follow up proposal. Once we selected him, he prioritized our project, showed up the same day as our closing and got right to work! He and his team were amazing. They stayed on schedule and on budget and did an absolutely phenomenal job on every piece of the project!! Our home is a brand new place thanks to them :) I would hire J. Olveira again and again! He and his team also do roof work and electrical which is good to know for our future projects!

Seal of Approval

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.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
