We are 100% satisfied with the process and result. Our dated cherry cabinets are gorgeous in their silky smooth painted finish. Richard is a knowledgable, skillful professional who goes above and beyond to make his clients happy. We love our "new" kitchen....a job well done in every way.

Mr. Adkins is highly professional and completely dedicated to making sure that the job is done correctly and to my satisfaction! Mr. Adkins lacquer sprayed my dated wood cabinets, and they look as good as new. Far better than I anticipated what painted cabinets would look like. Furthermore, his prices were competitive with 3 other quotes that I found from other contractors.

I hired Richard Atkins to refinish my kitchen cabinets. I had a specific espresso color that I wanted and he matched it perfectly. His company did a top rate professional job. They kept to their schedule, were professional at all times and left my kitchen spotless. I am a professional decorator and would highly recommend this company. I was very happy with the reasonable pricing in comparison to replacing the cabinets. I am thrilled with my new cabinets!!

I hired Richard Atkins to paint my kitchen cabinets white and he did an excellent job. He is a perfectionist and pays very close attention to detail, is responsive, and was a pleasure to work with. Instead of bringing my cabinets back to my house on the day he was supposed to (a Saturday, giving himself Sunday off), he held them an extra day to make sure they were perfect. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have their cabinets painted.

Review by in Annandale, VA
I hired House Doctor (Richard Atkins) through Home Advisor last year to do a refinishing job for my kitchen cabinets in a house I just bought. The cabinets were original from its 1983 construction and were an ugly blonde color. The previous owners had installed new wood flooring and granite counter tops and they did not complement the cabinets at all so we had to get them done. Richard came over for an estimate a few weeks before the job and he is awesome! Very friendly and straightforward, I thought I knew what type of finish I wanted but he was able to provide me with an excellent recommendation as an alternative (Espresso) and I am glad we did that instead, he has a great eye! He also recommended adding crown molding to the cabinets which I am also very glad we did, made a huge difference! The job took one week and was done by Richard and his assistant Glen who is also a great guy and a very skilled worker. They did it while I was at work during the days and they treated my house with care and kept everything clean. The finished product is incredible, I am not sure how to post pictures on these reviews but if you talk to Richard, ask him to show you the before and after pictures for the house cabinets he did in Annandale in Oct. 2016. Richard is excellent with customer service, I was able to keep in touch with him through text message throughout the job and he was always very quick with his replies. The only small issue we had was a small crack in part of the crown molding that occurred after the wood had settled for a couple weeks, but it was no problem at all because Richard came right back over a few days after we noticed and he repaired it with no extra charge or hassle. Overall House Doctor is worth 5 stars all the way through, I highly recommend their cabinet work!

Perfect in every way. Not only do the cabinets look fresh from the factory, but customer service was excellent from the initial estimate to completion. Texts were returned and questions answered promptly. Work completed on schedule and on budget. Richard and Glenn are total professionals. Highest recommendation.

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.
