Pittsburgh Drywall Contractors Reviews
A spare bedroom of mine that I use as an office had a splatter paint effect done by a previous owner. Latex paint was used and it appeared to be flung onto the walls and ceiling (and many other surfaces in the room) by just loading paint brushes and whipping them across the room. This created heavy paint streaks everywhere that were nearly impossible to cover. I didn't want to do a texture paint effect to try to hide the splatter, and I didn't want to wallpaper the room either; I was looking to get the walls back to as close to flat as possible. There was no way a few coats of paint would cover it. Since it was latex paint, sanding was pretty much out of the question. And with drywall, a heat gun to loosen an scrape away the paint wasn't really an option either.
After having several friends, extended friends of the family, and finally, professional contractors out to look at the room and offer suggestions, I was basically down to two options: tear down the existing drywall to the studs and re-drywall the entire room (including ceiling), or try to find an expert that could skim coat the entire room to level out the walls and cover the mess that was made with the splatter effect.
I had gone through at least half a dozen contractors that I either felt wouldn't do the job justice or were incredibly expensive. Granted, this job was probably out-of-the-ordinary for most contractors, but I didn't get a good feeling from anyone early on. Had I chosen to re-drywall the entire room, not only would it have been invasive, but also very expensive. Then along came
The original estimate was that it would take 2-3 days. Since my job was relatively minor in comparison to other jobs
By the end of day one, I could already see the improvements. The splatter paint was nearly unnoticeable, and I was getting excited for my "new" room. When Tuesday morning rolled around, I unfortunately came down with a stomach illness, but I knew it was too late in the morning to ask
Because the splatter paint was on pretty much every surface (including the trim, window sill, and closet door), I also had
I am completely satisfied with the work that
set a date, and everything went like clockwork after that. He was able to put a crew of six good workers on the job, so it took only two days instead of the week-long disruption that we had anticipated. I wouldn't say the price was a bargain, but we think it was quite fair for the amount and quality of the work that they did. (We were prepared to completely replace both ceilings.
The workmen were all very polite and considerate. They took great care not to damage any of our possessions and they cleaned up well after the job was done. Two of the men came back on the Friday after Thanksgiving (what would normally have been a day off for them) to wrap up some final painting, so that we could start getting things back to normal that weekend instead of waiting until Monday.
In the Fall of 2011, I hired B & M to remodeled both of the bathrooms in my house.
He and his team worked quickly and professionally to complete both bathrooms in a couple weeks. When the job was done, I very happy with the results. He and his team showed up on time, worked hard, and cleaned up after themselves.
A year later when I was looking to remodel my kitchen and mudroom, I once again hired B & M to do the remodeling. Once again,
Once again, B & M did a fantastic job! I will absolutely hire them for any remodeling needs I have in the future.
