and his team assisted me with a long overdue project. I have a side porch and roof about to fall over. It houses a rear entrance to the house and is more of a landing and stairs. The stairs are solid concrete. The rest of it is rotted wood, including a small roof.

ripped down the structure, installed a footing and then rebuilt this porch area and roof within a week or so. He is very prompt and cordial. His estimate and price at the end are the same. I am waiting on a motion sensor light to be installed which is part of the project but this is more coordination between the tenants who live there and his electrician.
I recommend

for any exterior porch, roof or other wooden structure in a residential setting. He is very responsive, punctual and does great work.

The job was not done because the painter did not show up for our scheduled appointment. He did call later on that night to reschedule but I am not available to meet with him during the week. And I do not want to give my business to a company that does not make scheduled appointments.

Fantastic. All we did was text him photos of the original door and opening, identify the door and door hardware that we wanted on the Home Depot website and

went an bought everything and installed it in one day. The door looks great, like it's always been there and the price was quite reasonable.

is very professional and he employs real painters year-round. His painters are experts and are very detail-oriented. We were especially impressed with the team leaders on both jobs. No plants were destroyed when they did the outside (which was done in the fall) and they were careful to clean up after themselves on both the exterior and interior jobs.

does not provide repair services, but he can recommend someone to make repairs if they find rotted wood, etc when they are preparing the house for painting.

will walk through the job with you in advance of the start of the work. Be sure to let him know what you do not want painted because otherwise everything will be painted. This is important to think about if you have metal anywhere that you don't want painted. Also, be clear about any holes (such as for curtain rods) that you don't want filled. He takes notes and lets the team leader know. We were very happy with the work and found

to be easy to work with in terms of scheduling. We especially enjoyed his team of painters.

This went excellent. They were professionals who knew what they were doing on the removal of lead paint . Also were hard workers who did exactly what I was told would be done and beyond. Brought back my house to a beautiful home again.

It went amazingly well.

went above and beyond, offering great suggestions for colors, recommending someone to do carpentry work and overseeing the job and in general, seemed to genuinely care about us and the work. The guys who did the work were very professional and did a really nice job.

I met with
Somerville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
earlier this year in order to go over what our house needed in terms of a complete exterior paint job. He arrived punctually and spent a good deal of time going over each aspect of the work - from stripping, to prepping, to actually painting.
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
Somerville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. We still owned our home and it certainly needed to be painted so we arranged to have the work done while we were away. Of course we were concerned with not being there during the process but it ended up going over extremely well.

remained in touch at all times and easy to contact despite us being on the opposite coast. He gave us constant updates and showed us final pictures of the finished work as well.
We are extremely happy with the work
Somerville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his team have done for us. Not only was the painting done quickly and beautifully, but the entire process was very easy and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend

to any other home owners. Our house is beautiful now thanks to them!

and his team did a great job on our exterior paint job. They worked well with 3 sets of homeowners, helped us select the best paint colors, and had a real attention to detail. We had a young child there and they were cautious about the removal of old paint so as to mitigate lead paint exposure. They treated 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.
Interior Kitchen

worked on our kitchen remodel. We were on a tight budget and he worked within it. A year later I can say it looks as good as the first day. I really wanted to use no VOC paints and he was supportive in my decision and helped me find the most appropriate paints for the cabinets so that they would last. He even did a sample with a paint brush v. sprayer to give me a sense. His team gave a real attention to detail, going above and beyond and skimcoating our walls so that everything looked perfect. Everything has held up extremely well and we are very satisfied.
We would use

again in a heartbeat for any paint jobs interior or exterior.

and his crew were great. We could not have been happier or more satisfied by their professionalism and the quality of their work. The prep work they did on the house was very impressive. They were very through. When additional work/materials were needed, Marcio always came to me to discuss the reasons and got my approval before moving forward. Marcio generally worked along with his crew and was very focused on making sure the job was done right. When Marcio was not there, his crew remained hard at work. They did an exceptional job cleaning up each day. Our neighborhood is 5 houses on a dead end street, so the realtionship with the neighbors was very important. Marcio handled all of this very well. I would definately use them again.

I needed to have the facade of my house repaired and repainted. This involved replacing clapboard, shingles and trim, rebuilding a deck and its ceiling, restoring and refinishing an antique door, and painting or staining all surfaces on the front of the house. Although the sides and back of the house are vinyl siding and did not need repair, the facade is a big project on its own, as this is a large, multi-family home with a lot of period details. This is also the type of project that will be the first of many, as the scope of all repairs needed is too large and expensive to do at once, but is also not time-critical. In short, this is a desirable project for a good contractor, as it will lead to much more business down the road. (Not to mention high visibility, with many potential referrals.)
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
Somerville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, that the front porch needed to be replaced with composite, and that some clapboard needed to be replaced as well. I didn't get into every detail, but I thought this was sufficient to describe the scope of the project.
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
Somerville Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
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.
