Review by in South Lyon, MI
I'm usually a DIY guy, but painting trim around my two story home didn't seem worth the risk of falling. Being a DIYer, my standards for workmanship are pretty high. I'm still analyzing the quality of work, but at first glance, I'm happy with the paint job!

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Ray Monczka is a very ethical and professional business owner. He personally reviewed the work that was done in my home. If I indicated any concerns or questions, he was prompt and courteous with his responses and saw to it that they were resolved. His company painted my living room walls, dining room ceiling and walls, my vestibule ceiling and walls, stair spindles and bi fold closet doors and the stairway ceiling and walls to the second floor. The landing at the top of the stairs, walls, ceiling and two linen closets. They also painted two bedrooms walls and ceilings. White trim accents were applied to all applicable areas. They also installed three sets of bi-fold closet doors and refinished two bi-fold linen closet doors as well as painted the entry doors to one bathroom and four bedrooms. Thank you Ray for your excellent customer service.
Response by Ray Monczka Painting: I thank you very much for you kind words. It was a pleasure to work in your home

Review by in Farmington, MI
I hired Ray after meeting with six painters, in the middle of July, and gave him a deposit check, being told the house would be done in two weeks. Initially he had a warm and professional demeanor... which was why I picked him. However, after over a month of no call / no show, I had to contact Home Advisor to get Ray to return my calls and get the work started. He then contracted out the work to another company or a team of other painters. Ray and I had set clear expectations when we initially talked, specifically about the prep work required on my house (there was A TON). The painters only did about half of the prep work we agreed upon, some of which I had to call and ask them to do... twice! The painters helped themselves to using my broom, rakes, hoses and did a poor job cleaning up the property after "completing" each day. There was paint all over my lawn and overspray on my tools and windows that was never cleaned up. When I asked why the dormers had not been painted when the job was "finished", the Lead Painter on the job gave me attitude and asked me "why I wanted them painted anyway?" The whole experience was a disappointment. When I asked to get an updated invoice based on the work that wasn't done, Ray had a horrible attitude over the phone and then showed up looking for money the same day. Technically the house is painted, so that's why he's not getting 1 star. Advice - make sure he actually has the time and proper staff to do your painting.
Response by Ray Monczka Painting: I feel that I have to respond to this rating. First off this home is all shake siding which has been painted on two different occasions with heavy peeling from past painters and I decided to accept the challenge to give this home the best process of painting we could. My contract contract called for one coat of Sherwin Williams rejuvenate and one coat of of super paint. I decided to apply a coat of S.W. oil bonding primer to adhere to old surface properly plus 1 coat of rejuvenate. W then applied 2 coats of Super Paint over that to try and give this home and even look over the heavy peeling which my painter who has worked for me exclusively

Completed the job quickly. Immediately addressed the couple of concerns I had after completing the job. Personable and friendly. Mike, the lead for the crew that did the work, was great.

Review by in South Lyon, MI
We had a pretty big job on our house and much of the house hadn't been maintained in 20 years, they cleaned off the old paint and stain and put on 2 coats of new paint and fresh caulking. The project was a color change and it came out great, we had a few questions along the way but they addressed them and made sure we got everything we expected and were happy before they left.

Review by in West Bloomfield, MI
Ray's team did a great job painting my house, they took a little bit of time because of other bookings, but when my it was time to paint my house they showed up early everyday and stayed late. Did a great job caulking, sealing and cleaning before painting. They took great care to attend to even the smallest problems I had and were very flexible with pricing. The only problem I encountered is due to weather and amount of houses they paint it can take a little while for them to get to your house. They made my house look wonderful.

Review by in Farmington Hills, MI
The painters did a terrific job painting the outside of our house. We had common brick and wanted to match the siding we already had. He explained in detail as to how they were going to do the project. Paint matched beautifully. I didn't give them 5 stars as we had to scrap and wash our windows from them powering washing the house then the over spray of paint. Also had to fix landscaping cloth and mulch that they pulled away from house. So had to do a lot of clean up labor.

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.

    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.

    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
