We've hired Steve 4 times and have always been pleased with his work. Not only has he been pleasant, fair to deal with and easy to communicate with, but he does quality work.
In 2007 our realtor gave us his card when we needed to remove french doors to create a bedroom. She recommended him to us because her clients had been pleased with his work. After Steve performed his "magic" one evening, no one could tell a an opening of had ever been in that wall.
In 2011 we remembered Steve's quality work and hired him to remove popcorn acoustic ceilings in a house we'd just purchased. We needed the job done quickly and Steve came through. His hand-troweled texture, even though competitively priced with blown-in ceilings, looks so much more upscale and custom. We also had Steve add a door between our master bedroom and bathroom where there was a ledge and high ceiling. Once again, he did a seamless job and you could never tell the door and wall weren't there originally.
That same year we hired Steve to paint the interior of our rental house and were very pleased with his timeliness, price and quality of work.
We just moved to another house and had Steve remove the popcorn ceilings and hand-trowel them. He also added can lights for us, dealt with difficult wallpaper as he painted the interior of the house and moved around some of our light and electrical outlets as we were updating bathrooms.
We're so glad to have Steve to count on for these projects. We've always been so pleased with his work and thankful to have some one treat us fairly and be so pleasant to deal with. Each time we've been in a hurry to get the jobs done and he's always met our deadlines. Occasionally glitches or unexpected issues come up when updating houses and we've been able to count on him to fix problems even if it was our fault and not try to bilk us for more money unfairly. He often eats the cost himself, but if something is going to cost more, he discusses it with us and gets our approval in advance.
