He was very professional and friendly and the examples of his work spoke for themselves. We agreed to sign a contract.
Unfortunately, we then learned we had to move for work and it took some time to get back in touch with
We are extremely happy with the work
our home with respect. They worked with 3 different paint colors and our house is definitely the prettiest on the block. We get compliments all the time. We'd use them again.
We would use
For a job of this size and scope, I took several estimates and spoke with many contractors. The bids fell in the range of $15-30K. ICS is very highly reviewed on Angie's List, so I contacted them for an estimate. In my estimate request, I explained that the house is a three-story
They declined to come out for an estimate appointment for a "partial" job, and would only provide an estimate for a full (all sides) exterior painting project plus repairs (if I was interested in replacing all my siding with red cedar or
I understand that no company is required to take my business. But I do think that this response on the part of ICS shows, at best, a lack of familiarity with the type of buildings in this area. At worst, it may indicate a company policy of unnecessary upselling.
Our house looks just wonderful now. We love the new color (our neighbors love it, too) and we are very pleased with the whole experience."
From their reps to their workers, all were excellent . Very responsive to every facet of the job. My house is 120 yrs old and the shingles were not in great shape. They replaced shingles were they had to and tightened up many more. They spent about a week on the prep work more than anticipated and the price did not change. There are plants and bushes and gardens around the property, they covered it all only as long as needed. At the end of every day the clean up was such that you would never know they were there. The paint job came out fantastic and my wife and I could not be happier.
I hired was a substantial amount relative to the original quote, and it was all stuff that was quite visible from the outside, I thought a little warning might have been nice at quote time. But whatever.
Last fall was the usual New England patchwork of rain and sun. They didn't seem to have much availability to be at the house, many sunny days went by without work being done, and winter arrived before the house could be caulked or primed. It sat for the next 7 months as an eyesore to the neighborhood, with much bare wood exposed to the rain and snow.
This spring a subcontractor arrived. They didn't know my name or phone number, or what colors I'd asked for. They didn't have the illustrations I'd prepared, which I had both given and emailed to
The subcontractor did a decent job and cleaned up after themselves. I'll review them separately and favorably.
But I wouldn't hire
Overall, this was not at all the quality of painting service that I thought I was hiring.
