Robert is excellent at repairing and painting popcorn ceilings. when he gets done you can not tell where the ceiling was repaired. This is the second time I hired Robert and both times he was excellent. He is the Rembrandt of ceiling repair to me and I highly recommend hiring him if you need any type of painting done.

Review by in East Haven, CT
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
We read the reviews and were very excited to work with such a great/reputable company. We were however quite disappointed. We did a walk through and pointed out the areas we needed to be fixed. Ceiling in the garage needed repair from old water damage and we wanted the whole garage painted, also had some patchwork in the kitchen above the cabinets and wanted the kitchen painted, and a small area of popcorn ceiling in the master bath was peeling that we wanted repaired. Definitely things we can do ourselves but didn't have the time and really wanted professional work. He did give us a great quote and said would take about a week. On the contract he had everything written down wrong, we had to constantly point out and re-point the things we needed done, didn't seem like he was listening or understood. They did finish on time as quoted (1 week), however they arrived every day at 1030, took an hour lunch at noon, and then finished up everyday by 245. I know things need to dry, but didn't seem like a great use of time. I was glad I was home every day though because I feel like they would have done things they weren't supposed to. They also trampled paint through the house that we had to wipe up off the hardwood floors and carpets, they got paint on the cabinets, and left behind three huge bags of trash at the end. We are happy with the garage, but still unhappy with the kitchen as it looks sloppy and not completely smooth like we wanted. Honestly, we would rather finish up the work ourselves as it was very frustrating. Nice guys, did feel comfortable having them in my home but I don't think I can recommend them.

Review by Barbara M. in Stratford, CT
Project: Repair Plaster
Did not deliver on his promise to repair all cracks in hallway only to be left with a very visible crack he claimed he did his best and no one would notice it. Would not recommend this company to anyone.

Review by in New Haven, CT
Robert is very prompt in every phase of his work.: estimation, answering all questions by email after the first visit, writing the contract ... He started and finished the work exactly on the dates written in the contract. When he finished the job I was very happy but he warned me that the project was big and also when the paint is wet it is possible not to notice some spots which may require more paint. He told me to call him immediately and he will come and fix them free of charge. He was right, there were a few such spots. After a couple of days I called him and he came right away and fixed all of them. He did an excellent job. His policy is to consider the job done only when the customer is fully satisfied. I am very happy with the work that Robert did.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
