Wendy Forgus, founder of What about Wendy Painting & Design?, graduated from Western Michigan University with honors receiving an interior design degree. She is an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). Her knowledge in color theory, space planning, and interior details have made her much more than a designer.

Review by in Saint John, IN
Wendy and her crew were great start to finish. Her estimate was extremely thorough and fair. The work was done in a timely manner and they were honestly just a joy to have in the house. We were very lucky to find Wendy because having someone in your home is a very personal experience...she made everything comfortable. Finally, the work was done thoroughly.. .nothing was left unfinished or finished poorly. Just cannot say enough good things about them.

Review by in Valparaiso, IN
Wendy is a very professional individual, who has a vast knowledge of interior design. She recommended a gentleman to do our carpentry work and a company to purchase our counter top. She saved us over $4000 on our counter top. All of the work was done on time. Individual who come into our kitchen will always ask who did your work. They are so impressed with the cabinets. We were very blessed to have her remodel our kitchen.

Review by in Valparaiso, IN
If anyone needs to have their kitchen cabinets redone; Wendy is the company to use....she is very professional, extremely high work ethics; works according to the schedule which we agreed to in the beginning; she is a very warm and friendly individual who takes her time to explain each step of the project; recommend places to purchase quality paint; she saved us about $4000 dollars on her recommendation of a counter top company; so if you want to have a first class kitchen remodeled. Wendy is the person to do the job....we also needed to have some carpentry work done; so she recommended another individual to do the work; again, her recommendation was outstanding ...Wendy is the person in the know ...I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants high quality for a very reasonable price...you will be glad you did..:)

Wendy worked with me to select colors and did a very good (careful) job with the painting--even took on several extra tasks after she got started. I had a lower quote from another painter but chose to go with her because of her ratings. I think it was worth it.

Wendy did a great job. She helped me pick colors, showed up on time and did great work. Every night the house was cleaned up and all the painting tools left in a neat pile in a corner. I would recommend her services.

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.
