    Communication was great and the job was completed on time and no surprise extra costs.

    Response from Company:

    Thank-You So Much


    Steve was great. He fixed our ceiling that was botched by a previous contractor after removing 3 skylights. My only complaint is he was VERY expensive. $5,000 to redo our living room ceiling. This involved cutting out a large area of wallboard, cutting out some of the old skylight framing, installing furring strips, reinstalling wallboard, plastering, and painting. The end result was perfect though. He does great work.

    Thank You So Much.

    I hired Steven to repair/paint my family room due to water damage this past winter following a burst pipe. Steven had to hang wallboard, install installation, plaster both the walls/ceilings, paint the entire room walls/ceilings. Steven and his men were responsive, professional, personable, and takes pride in his work. The work was completed on time and it looks great. Steven also had to repair/replace/stain moldings as well. I would definitely use Steve again and would highly recommend him as well.

    Personable, Steve and Joe did great work. Good prep of our area and cleanup each day. Very professional and thorough in explanation of work and follow through. Asked questions and gave suggestions as the project was progressing. Would highly recommend Steve to others and would definitely hire again. Well done. Very professional.

    This is a mixed review. Steve and Joe arrived on time and covered the floor to protect it. JOE did an awesome job repairing my ceiling in several places. He did a very good job matching the existing swirl pattern and answering all questions I had. Now, the reason I only gave Steve 3.5 stars is because of the lack of clean up. The description of work performed was *Swirl bad areas of the ceiling, cleanup*. If you say on the invoice you are going to clean up, and I pay for cleanup, then I should not have to go back and clean EVERYTHING after you leave! All walls and shelves around the repaired areas needed to be wiped down and plaster removed. The floors also needed to be vacuumed and mopped because of all the crap left behind when they picked up the floor covering. AND even the door, front porch, and side of the house where the hose is had plastered all over them! In conclusion, the plasterwork performed by Joe was great, but the cleanup, which I believe was Steves responsibility, was unacceptable. Because Steve was technically the *helper* on this job, it was his job to handle all the cleanup. He did not. UPDATE - After seeing this review Steve contacted me, apologized, and offered to refund some of my money for the lack of cleanup. I did not accept his offer because I believe the work was worth what I paid, but I appreciate the effort he made to make things right. Thanks, Steve!

    He showed up on time and started right away on the project. He was very considerate of me and let me know step by step what was being done if I had questions.
