Wallpapering reviews in Cambridge

We'd purchased a home which needed to be fully repainted. As the home was built in 1895, it's interior was mostly original horsehair plaster over wood lathe.

completed a full walk-through analysis of the job, pointing out tasks which would add extra expense and could be completed by the owner, as well as clarifying the scope of work we wanted completed. It's a funny thing...painting is painting, right? I felt like I was learning from the start and immediately began to feel encouraged about his knowledge and skill when

began to propose multiple options for prepping (shoring up) plaster which was pulling away from lathe, cracks which had spread through the plaster in several rooms, and the wallpaper borders in the kitchen. I did not know plaster buttons existed, but
Cambridge Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
explained what they were, how they worked and estimated (accurately!) the amount of prep time he would use to patch, button, and reskim areas of tired plaster so that the newly painted rooms would justify the expense of bringing in a painter in the first place. He was friendly and helpful from start to finish, always asking before taking on any extra repairs and confirming his rationale ("Did you want me to remove curtains, shutters and shams or would you like to do that before I start and save a few hours' labor?" or "This black paint in the wainscoated bookshelves is likely to need an additional coat of primer." or "I would recommend a special primer to cover the wallpaper adhesive so you do not get it bleeding through the paint - are you aware of that?") Throughout this job,

worked alone, carefully tarping, and cleaning up after himself each day. He showed up when he said he would, and communicated with us regularly throughout the job. Because I worked close to the job, I stopped in on a number of occasions to gauge his progress and determine whether there was anything he needed. He was always very polite and conversational during my drop-ins, but also focused, as he was mindful of the schedule, or had just mixed up a batch of plaster he wanted to use, or was trying to get a coat on so that it could cure and allow the next coat.

"cut in" the paint where the wall met the ceilings quickly and accurately, and repainted all of the old original baseboard and window trim. We could not have been more pleased with his work. As he was referred to us by a friend (I understand that he has gotten most of his work though word of mouth) and not Angie's List, I thought it would be helpful to "get the word out.

Everything was done with a very high level of professionalism and precision. The painting work is some of the best quality I have ever seen and the finished carpentry is beautiful. They were very happy to work with us to scale the quality of the work for the application - for example, they built a very decorative banister for our main stairs and a much simpler one for the basement stairs. The staff were all friendly and professional and left the house perfectly clean at the end of their work. The only problems we had were some small pencil

on the hall banister which were not removed before varnishing the wood and some cosmetic issues with the new archway that came out about 9 months after construction. They were able to fix the latter issue.

They were quick and efficient and got the job done well. They were able to come quickly and got it done because we had a very short turn around time. In the two different times we had them come they did a great job.

is the best. He returned my call promptly. Arranged a meeting for my convenience since I am out of town and maintaining my mother's property in Cambridge. He had a thorough and accurate estimate and made many helpful suggestions along the way for me to either say yes or no without any pressure. I felt confident in his judgment and was rewarded by a great job. He also took on the task of finding a plasterer and electrician to do some work along the way which was a huge help since I had few of my own resources to find those people on short notice. All in all a great experience and highly recommend his services.

and his team were excellent.

promptly returned all calls, met me onsite for an estimate. He worked with my extremely tight schedule on a new move-in, between his team and the hardwood floor guys. His team was courteous and generally pretty clean. They did a very good job (a-/b+) at a competitive price. I would strongly recommend this firm to anyone.

and his crew were absolutely wonderful to work with.
Cambridge Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
gave us a prompt, professional, and reasonable estimate for a very big job. A great deal of the price was in the work involved removing wallpaper and preparing walls.
Cambridge Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
and his crew were very easy to work with and worked around other people coming in to do the floors, the heating, electrical, etc. They were very accommodating to repairing holes made by these various contractors and working with us to figure out what we needed to do as this was our first experience with such a big job. The painters were polite, helpful, resourceful, and largely careful to clean up as they went along (it was a very messy job because of the wall paper removal! ). The job took about ten days longer than we expected, but that was largely due to our slowing them down.

was so reassuring, calm, and accommodating that the entire experience was really positive. And everyone who sees our house comments on the fabulous paint job!

came on a weekend to give us an estimate on painting all the rooms in a new house (including removing wall paper). He was very professional and spent a great deal of time looking at the job. His estimate arrived promptly, but it was $10,000 higher than our next estimate. We felt fully confident he would do a wonderful job and be a fine person to work with, but were planning to choose another contractor due to price. Before we could call him, however, he called to say he did not really have time to do the job.

and
Cambridge Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
are really great to work with. For the second time this summer they came to work on my house on a Sunday. I find it amazing that they do this and it totally worked for us schedule wise.
They came with 3 painters and painted our whole house including needing to do significant patching and sanding in the kitchen due to previous wallpaper removal, in 6 hours. They work quickly and efficiently and they are good at what they do.
I have enjoyed working with

and

they were understanding when the price on the kitchen was way out of my price range and worked with me on the price. They painted the ceiling on the bathroom that they had not planned to do as the walls were already done but they knew I really wanted it done and made it happen.
They really wanted to leave me happy as a customer and I appreciated that. I am really happy with the paint job they did as well as the wallpaper removal job. Thanks for all your work this summer!
