    4.5 Jo ann R. Durham, ME

    Mike was very pleasant and did a wonderful job painting my bathroom. Also put up some trim in entranceway. I have more work that needs to be done and will be calling him.

    5.0 Nan B. Albion, ME

    Very professional and a thorough job for a fair price. Would hire him again -- highly recommend.

    5.0 Drew M. Portland, ME

    Right on time, right on price, finished a major job beautifully. Saved our bacon! [First-timers should know that plastering ceilings is beautiful - Michael even dealt with many recessed lights. There is some dust involved, just pitch in because it gets everywhere. But its the most beautiful work and its half the cost of sheetrock.)

    5.0 Dennis B. Brunswick, ME

    Michael did excellent work, provided realistic estimates, was timely and professional in attitude and workmanship, and was dependable and friendly while providing great customer service. I would hire him again for any job...he screened in a porch to our exact specifications...a job well done.

    5.0 Hanns M. Spruce Head, ME

    Michael does high-quality work. He is conscientious, thoughtful , reliable, personable and punctual. We hired Michael to build a car port. The finished project is excellent. I recommend Michael without reservation and will hire him again for any future project.

    5.0 Clare B. Greene, ME

    He did a great job, very professional - put up curtain rod, wall remote holders and waterproof sealed around a counter top and back splash in my kitchen. He was very neat with the sealing work, so you can't see at all where it was applied. I will definitely hire again.

    5.0 Jessica D. Lisbon, ME

    We hired Mike to work on some of our ceilings - he removed tiled squares and put in drywall, smoothed out an old plaster ceiling and did patch work on another. We felt that he was honest, reasonable and personable! The thing we liked most about Mike was that he provided his insight, but was still willing to try the project we had in mind even though there were many unknowns. Our project did not work out as we did encounter some structural limitations - he kindly backtracked and finish off the work with clean smooth results. Lastly Mike was easy to work with, good communication and flexible scheduling! We would definitely consider him for other projects around the home.

    5.0 Norm C. Augusta, ME

    I called Mike from Florida for work on a rental property.This is the second time he has done some work for me. The jobs were to Jack up and straighten a porch, clean out basement, shampoo carpets and repair a window. When we got back in May we went over to see how everything looked and he did a fine job on all projects. He stuck to his estimate which I thought was very reasonable. A very reliable guy who is gaining a good reputation.

    5.0 Nick M. Brunswick, ME

    EXCELLENT CONTRACTOR. My project was drywall installation during a bathroom remodel. I chose Golden Rule after reading the reviews and obtaining an estimate. The price matched the budget I had set for this part of the project. The work was performed during four visits over four days (drying periods are required for drywall). Michael showed up on time each day. He was very polite and very helpful with explanation of drywall techniques and also offered advice on other household repairs I might need. The final product was perfect and ready for painting. I am very pleased and would not hesitate to use Golden Rule for any future projects.
