I bought the Angie's List deal for two hours of wallpaper removal for $59. That was a good price.

, the owner, and his son were both here for two hours so he charged me for an additional two hours of labor - two men for two hours, for a total of four hours. That was fine with me. I did not expect them to not be paid for their additional time, but I should have asked up front what his hourly charge was.... He charged me $65 per hour, unless I hired him to come back and do the painting, in which case he would take off $20 off the per hour rate. The $65 per hour rate seems high to me. I had a previous bid that was $45 per hour for the wallpaper removal. So, that is what I'm gauging his rates by. I do not know what the going rate is though. While doing the removal I heard
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
twice firmly tell his son to stop gouging the walls, and that he needed to be more careful and peel it off in layers. For the record, his son was polite and nice. I had no issue with him. What bothered me, was that when they were done, and I pointed out the gouges in the only two spots where they removed the wallpaper,
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
told me that just happens sometimes. I pointed out that I had already done the majority of the removal myself before they came to finish it and that I had no gouges that deep anywhere where I had worked. He then started pointing out little places where I had some patchwork that would need to be done in the areas I had worked on too. I am very aware wallpaper peeling is a messy job that occasionally causes Sheetrock issues, but these gouges where the paper on the Sheetrock was peeled off completely down to gray showing, were ONLY in the two small areas where they had removed the wallpaper, not where I had worked previously. On top of that, his son nicely offered to return and fix the gouges for me, but his father told him to "Stop talking and not say another word." I do not expect something for nothing, but I do expect professionalism and fairness, and I do not feel I received that today.

Amazing work. It was a much bigger job than any of us thought it would be. There were at least two layers of wallpaper with primer in between. These guys worked very hard to get the job done and they left my walls in perfect condition. I felt that they were underpaid because the Big Deal did not account for all the extra work. Very impressive work ethic and customer service. I'd hire them again in a minute!

Superbly.

and his staff are the best I know of in the Twin Cities. They are wonderfully exacting in their demands on themselves. Perfection is standard performance for them. They make useful suggestions for handling unexpected problems encountered in the course of the work.

is a gifted judge of color and the compatibilities of various colors that will go together in a room.
Not surprisingly, they are a bit more expensive than their competition. However, the difference is not great. We used another organization on our last re-decoration. For the higher price,
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
performed far, far better. The increased cost was definitely worth it in our view.
I can't imagine anyone going wrong in hiring this firm to do interior re-decoration.

The job went great!
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
and his helper methodically worked their way thru the job one room at a time in order to avoid the disrupting the entire house. I was impressed with
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
's work ethic and attention to detail. The pre-painting preparation was very thorough. All of the woodwork was sanded and patched as necessary and and the walls that had wallpaper on them were skim coated and patched. The paint was applied with care. Upon completion of a room all of the furniture was moved back to where it had been and the pictures on the wall were re-hung. Every room was left in pristine condition when they finished working in it.

and his helper were very easy to work with and very accommodating about changes. They always arrived on time and worked the entire time they were in the house. I am very happy with the work they did.

A crew of five arrived as scheduled and carefully prepared the work area by moving and covering all furniture, woodwork, counters, light fixtures, etc. We had four rooms that needed attention. They all worked long hours the first day. All work was completed in two and a half days. Quicker than promised. The workmen were capable and professional, efficient and polite. The walls and ceiling look like new. All details were carefully and openly considered. Quality products were used. Upon completion, everything was left clean.

was able to complete a variety of jobs in our home with lightning speed while still maintaining attention to detail. Up front with great communication on what was being done. All work was accomplished at quoted price. Complete courtesy and awareness of our comfort level. Thank you so very much!

I can't really say enough good things about
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
. We had just bought a house in Minneapolis and were still living in DC and we wanted some work done to it before we moved in since we were moving with a baby. I hired
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
for a huge job and he ended up doing that and so much more and mostly by himself. I hired him to do two things, first was to paint the entire interior of the house (about 2000 square feet) which included painting all of the walls, windows, trim, doors, ceilings, etc. The second was to do something with the ridiculous texture that was on the walls in the stairwell going up stairs (including the very high ceiling), two bedrooms and the entire hallway upstairs. There was a thick plastered texture with a high gloss paint on it. No one had ever seen walls like this (I had other painters walk in and walk out of the house saying that they would not deal with this), and even
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
thought that the best thing to do would be to sand it down a little bit and then apply a knockdown texture. However, knowing that we would accept that but really wanted smooth walls,
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
did a lot of research and found sandpaper designed for sanding floors and creatively used that with a sander he bought for this job and managed to find a way to smooth the walls. It took a few days of holding the sander up to the walls an ceilings and just sanding for days and even hired one other person to assist. It was a tremendous job and I don't anyone else could have done it. It was only because of
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
's determination, patience and strength that he was able to accomplish it (and we couldn't be happier with how it turned out).

In addition to the painting and sanding, he fixing numerous problems with walls, fixed trim, removed wallpaper and panels, re-plastered, added sheetrock and drywall, and repaired some problems with the cement board on the exterior. Not only did he do this, but he did this without supervision. I was out in DC while most of this happeniing so we had most of our communication through the phone, email and text. He would call me with updates, send pictures over SMS, and call with any questions. In addition, he facilitated all of the other work that had to be done (coordinating with a handyman, flooring company and window company) and really acted as our unofficial contractor.

To sum it up,
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
is detail-oriented, an extremely hard and diligent worker, a great and precise painter, and most of all an honest person who sincerely wants to do an amazing job and satisfy every customer. He worked evenings and weekends to get the job done for us so it would be ready by the time we moved in. I have already hired him to paint some offices in my office suite and plan on hiring with every painting need I have in the future. I would recommend him without reservation.

I wanted wallpaper removed in a small bedroom, and then I wanted to do the painting. I called the company, they came to look, told me it wasn't wallpaper on the wall (although you could see the wallpaper peeking out at the seam, and then told me he tried to tell the person who booked the Angie's Deal that he didn't want to do a deal for just wallpaper removal "but he didn't listen to me." I was a little confused, since "wallpaper removal" were the words that made me jump to buy the deal. We had a conversation, where I agreed to pull of as much of the wallpaper as I could and then they would finish. Or so I thought. I had a family medical emergency that went on for a few weeks, so the project was put on the back burner. After about a month, I called them again to remind myself of what that $200 Big Deal was going to be, as I was a little fuzzy about where we had left it. I told him exactly that, that I was trying to remember what we had agreed to. He was a little taken aback and seemed a little defensive in his response, again telling me it wasn't wallpaper and that I had agreed to tear off as much as I could and that they would do the mud work. (Issue #1 for me: they didn't want to do the wallpaper removal, because "it wasn't wallpaper.") I assured him that I wasn't upset or jumping on him, but still, he seemed defensive. I asked him if, in doing the mud work, it would look consistent, to which he replied that they wouldn't be doing the painting so that was up to me. (Issue #2: it seems that they wanted the painting job and without that, he wasn't interested.) I asked when they would be able to do it, what their timeline was. He replied that there was no way he could do it until it got to be below 35 degrees (and this was mid-August), to which I asked, you mean, like November?" and he said yes. At that point, I decided it wasn't worth having someone who didn't want the job to be in my house, nor was it worth $200 for the deal, so I asked for a refund on the Big Deal and got it. I'm not sure what the guy's problem was==the fact that he didn't want to do wallpaper removal (clearly!), the "fact" that it "wasn't wallpaper" on my wall, or that I wasn't hiring him to do the prep and the painting. Oh well.

I signed up for the "Big Deal" for wallpaper removal.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
came over to look at the job and we arranged a time for him to do the work. The job was extremely difficut because it involved removal of three layers of wallpaper -- and one of the layers was painted over.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
told me that if he had been aware of the painted
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
, he would not have taken on the job. I read a little online about the process -- and it was basically characterized as nearly impossible. But, as it turns out, with
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
all things appear to be possible. He and his worker got the job done in only 10 hours -- right down to the bare walls. I did have to pay extra for two of the hours as the big deal was for only 8 hours total.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
advised me on what kind of primer to use and I will be hiring him to come back and fill the cracks before I paint. If I had more money right now, he would definitely be doing the paint job. I may still find a way to make it happen. Awesome experience with this contractor. I would highly recommend him!

I purchased an Angie's List coupon for this service. I called right away in November because I wanted the work done before the Christmas holiday and the arrival of guests.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
came out that same week to give me an estimate. The work was more than the coupon covered but he gave me the discounted price on the whole job. He warned me that the estimate on the wallpaper removal was just an estimate, due to the uncertainty of the difficulty of removing the wallpaper. He would need to adjust the price based on the actual work done. The estimate included oil based primers for all unpainted surfaces and low VOC latex paints, as the oil based primers give a better surface and the low VOC paints are better for the environment. This impressed me. The estimate also included the paint and supplies. I thought the estimate was very reasonable and we agreed on the job. His calendar for the weeks before the holiday were already filling up, but he assured me he would get me done before my guests arrived on 12/22/2010. As the week of 12/14/2010 started to pass by, I got very concerned and we talked on the phone a few times.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
was very attentive to his phone messages and always called back promptly. He again assured me that he would get me done. His current customers were adding additional services to the jobs and he wanted to take care of them while he was there. I also needed to add a small job to the original estimate and he took care of this for me with no problem. He arrived with 3 crew members by 8 am on 12/20/2010 and they worked hard until about 3:30 when they cleaned up and were gone by 4. We had a pretty good snow that night but they were back before 8 the next morning and finished by 11. I had to be gone during the 2nd day, so left a check for the amount of the original estimate. Due to the slight adjustments in the total job, the price had changed slightly.
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
left the check and a new invoice and I mailed him the payment the next day. I was very impressed with the professionalism and quality work performed by
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
and with
Minneapolis Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
. I will definitely use them again.
