Review by in East Greenbush, NY
Had an accent wall and kitchen wallpapered... could not be happier! Doug is very skillful and the walls are amazing. He also painted another accent wall black and the entire living area a neutral color. He was back today for touch ups and my home is now ready for the Holidays!!! I plan on seeing him in the Spring for patio staining! As a senior citizen, l am very picky as to whom l let in my home... l was very comfortable with him being here. I thought his rates were reasonable and l have no hesitation recommending him (highly)!!!

Review by in Albany, NY
We are extremely happy with the work Doug performed for us. He removed layers & layers of wallpaper, repaired the walls & ceilings and painted our stairwell, hall, two bedrooms and two closets in our nearly 100 year old home. We highly recommend Doug. He was professional, friendly and went above and beyond our expectations.

Review by in Schodack Landing, NY
Project: Paint or Stain Interior Surfaces
Doug came to my house and gave me a very reasonable estimate to paint 4+ rooms. Within a couple of days, he began working and returned to complete the job in three days. His work is excellent and he is a pleasure to work with. I plan to have him come back in the spring and have already referred him to two friends.

Review by in Voorheesville, NY
Project: Repair Plaster
Doug was a sincere pleasure to work with. He came to our house for a plaster repair estimate and knowing we were pressed for time, offered to perform the repair immediately. We asked him to do several other smaller plaster repairs while he was there and he was happy to do them. He was very professional, friendly, and quick! His price for the repairs was very reasonable. I highly recommend Doug for any plaster repairs needs you have, and based on the quality of his work and his professionalism, I'm sure he handles other projects with the same skill and care.

Review by in Schenectady, NY
Doug is very professional. His skills were high quality. Very reasonably priced as well. He's done a lot of painting for me, and I was so impressed with his work that I have referred him to others. I trust his work. Very reliable, which can be hard to come by with some independent contractors!

Review by in Delmar, NY
Project: Repair Plaster
Doug responded to our inquiry within minutes and gave us a very competitive quote for the plaster repair and painting job we needed. He worked by himself for just over a week, was very clean and thorough. We threw some extra requests at him while he was here - no problem. We're very happy with his work and will hire him again!

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.
