"Incredible experience. Due to a snow storm, the team sent me a message to let me know that they would be 30 minutes later than originally planned. I appreciated the update. The team was very professional and worked hard for the entire 8 hours. They were ...more able to paint three of the four rooms I had hoped. Due to the fourth room having wallpaper that had been painted over, one member of the team had to spend the entire day removing and prepping the fourth room. It was a lot to accomplish in 8 hours, and I will be having them back to finish the fourth room later this week. Overall a great experience! I would highly recommend. "

"Initial experience was less than desirable. The crew was very quick in removing wallpaper and then putting on 2 coats of paint. I called
(owner) to explain the situation and he told me that it was his fault the work was done ...more so fast but would send another team to remedy the situation. The second crew arrived the following week and did an amazing job. They went over and beyond to remedy the situation and I couldn't be happier. The basement looks great and I'm very happy that I decided to go with Benchmark. They stand by their work and make sure the customer is completely (100%) satisfied."

Arlington Wall Paper Removers Reviews
"We closed on a townhouse and wanted the wallpaper removed, plaster repaired, and walls painted before our flooring contractor started and we moved in.
came out the morning after I called for an estimate and we worked out a contract on Saturday afternoon/evening while he was at a work function. We ...more settled on terms at around 9:30pm on Saturday and their crew started the next morning at 7:00am. The whole project was completed within 3 days and we had a walk through as soon as they finished to have minor touch ups and cleaning done. The experience was great and the paint is dry for our flooring contractor who started work this morning. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends."
when I discovered an outdoor faucet (still connected to a hose) covered with ice. Fearing I had a burst pipe, I asked him to look at the faucet at his earliest convenice. He arrived the next morning at 8:30 AM. He determined that I did not have a burst pipe. He put new packing and new washers in ...more the faucet, but warned me that the stem might be warped and that the seat might be ruined. He did not charge me for that service because he feared he had not fixed it. Sure enough, I had to call him yesteday and tell him that the faucet was leaking again. Bottom Line: last february he tried to save me money with a quick fix, but warned me what might happen. Today I was glad to pay him for replacing the faucet and for doing the job before cold temperatures could lead to a burst pipe and a big bill."
"Judit Ilie is amazing. Her work is impeccable. Not only are her prices very reasonable, her design background is invaluable in helping select paint colors. She provides elaborate mock ups of the faux finishes to give the customer a clear idea of what the treatment will actually look like. Judit responded immediately for my request for an estimate and ...more was able to begin the job within a few weeks of signing the contract. I am thrilled with the final product and would unequivocally recommend her."
"Everything with Select went splendidly well. I would use them again in a heartbeat. The truth is they are slightly more expensive than any other estimate we received (by maybe 10-30%), but they were worth every penny (and they ended up coming in slightly below budget). They have a solid business going, where they've got project managers and schedulers ...more and daily workers; they have good relationships with their subcontractors. We always knew what was going on; they responded well to phone calls, e-mails, etc. Once, I wrote a panicked e-mail in the middle of the night (3 am) and had a response from the owner the next morning. They did a great job!! We love our new kitchen!! The *only* caveat I have is that, like all major remodeling, one should assume the work will take twice as long as what they say. Not that they weren't working, but things always come up! (It took 6 weeks instead of the estimated 3.)"
who runs the office. The crew arrive early and are so punctual you can set your clock by them. We were doing the whole house and they asked us where to begin so we could still have somewhere to live during this project. The whole job took slightly more ...more than a week. We have a lot of things they had to move -- more than once. They were very careful with everything they handled, art-glass, paintings, furniture. They were very neat and clean and worked quickly. They accommodated some last minute color changes without any delay in getting the work done. But most of all, these guys do fabulous work. Great preparation and great painting. They patched walls and stripped wallpaper amazingly fast. The quality is first rate and the prices very reasonable. I would hire these folks again in a heartbeat."
"We closed on our house and wanted it repainted because there were cracks in the walls and holes from the previous owner. They did a great job removing old (70 plus years) wallpaper from a closet and made it look new. They can do a lot of minor repairs when doing a larger job so it was convenient to have him there.
has a lot of ...more knowledge about repairing things I couldn't. He even painted the old ironwork on the front of the house we want to rent out! I was very pleased with the work and professionalism."
crew did a great job. As a local landlord I know firsthand how hard it is to find reasonably priced contractors who are able to stand by their commitments to get the job done on time and on budget. I never have to worry about
, I have used his services on many of my rental properties over the ...more past 6+ years. Given the quality of his work and his up front and honest approach he has earned my business for many years to come!!
gave us an estimate and took time to answer all of our questions.
came by before painting began to do a color consultation, he had lots of great insights and helped us make sure all of the colors would look nice together. Painting started sooner than expected because ...more
and his crew were rained out of an outdoor job, so they spent a couple of days starting the work before the crew that was assigned to our job was available.
and his crew spent the bulk of the time at our house and were incredibly friendly, professional and communicative. They went above and beyond to make sure that the colors were right and we had all the details just the way we wanted them. The plaster repairs, wallpaper removal and other repairs to the bathroom ceiling, as well as the actual painting were all very well done. Our old house looks beautiful and new. "
