    We used Jonathan as a VERY handy handyman to build and install wood railings on the **other side** of all our stairwells where we had just one railing on each set of stairs (aging in place project!!) Jonathan was quick to respond to our inquiry and get the job done. He matched woods and finishes so that the new railings look like they have always been there. In fact, our kids visited this weekend and when we asked if they noticed anything new they needed a hint!! And WE do feel much more secure on the stairs with this project completed.

    5.0 Lainy M. Durham, CT

    Jonathan and his painting crew were professional, courteous, neat, hard workers and very efficient. They cleaned up each day and left everything neat and covered. They were well organized and helpful. I highly recommend them.

    5.0 Scott M. Old Lyme, CT

    Jonathon was prompt and reasonable and the work was first rate.

    4.5 Scott S. Old Lyme, CT

    Jonathan and his team did an outstanding job on our 1930's home. The original beadboard was beautiful but much too dark. Team PaintStar expertly prepped and painted all of our walls and ceilings white, while maintaining many original wood features, resulting in a terrific mix of vintage and newly lightened spaces. They also expertly prepared and painted kitchen cabinets in two different matching colors and made the kitchen look much better than when we bought the house. Jonathan and team are also finish carpentry craftsmen who did many projects that have maintained the original look of the house while replacing things that were worn out. We're now having them install vintage french doors as a barn door separating living spaces and are looking forward to seeing the finished product. We strongly recommend Jonathan and his PaintStar team!

    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)
