For what it’s worth Marcio and his crew where fantastic. They worked very hard and were quite meticulous. When they did the touch up I firmly believe they fixed things I might never have noticed. I was totally astounded when they were cleaning up and swept the dirt near the house to get paint chips!. Marcio is really smart, knows what he is doing and firmly believes (as I do) that the truly only way to do something is the right way and not a short cut.

The advices we received were very useful. The wood prep work and the painting were high quality and done in a good time. The crew was friendly, courteous and very professional as well as meticulous. Good cleanup too. Highly satisfied

Review by in West Roxbury, MA
I was not only impressed by the quality of the paint job, but also by the professional manner of the Smart Coats crew. The work was done in a timely manner and workers were well trained and courteous. They were super meticulous and took pride in doing a top-notch painting job. My house under went a transformation from being an eye-sore to being "a jewell in the crown" of the neighborhood. I would wholeheartedly recommend this company to my friends and family. Thanks Ed, for a job well done.

Review by Crystal L. in Boston, MA
I hired them...customer service was great the quality of work was poor...they had to keep fixing the same problem....the paint was discoloured and streaked on all three porches and paint was on my vinyl...they insisted the problem was with the paint and didn't understand it...they did not pay attention to detail....
Response by Smart Coats, Inc.: We are very sorry that your experience with our company was unsatisfactory. We strive to deliver high quality craftsmanship on every project. Unfortunately re-painting is an imperfect process and not all problems can be solved. We did our very best to repeatedly troubleshoot the issues experienced on your project. I personally attempted time and again to remedy the situation, going above and beyond both the scope of work and the proposal cost to satisfy you. If you feel there are any additional lengths to which we could have gone in order to make things right, please call the office and ask to speak with me directly. Thank you.

Review by in Watertown, MA
The Smart Coats crew did a great job not only painting the outside of the house and the back porch but also repairing all damaged wooden window and door frames. The quality of the work was excellent and the price was very reasonable.

Review by in Westwood, MA
We were quite satisfied with the quote process and the quality of the work done. The crew was very friendly and willing to respond to any requests. Clean up was very good. There was a little disconnect between the quoted job and what the crew knew about it to begin with but we were able to easily get that straightened out. I would recommend general oversight as the job progresses, but that's the same as I would recommend for any contractor's work.

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. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
