This was a tough rating for me. We ended up ok with the final product but we had some headaches with this project.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came out quickly and quoted us a price which was a bot higher than some other prices we had received and much higher than one. We chose him because of his extremely high rating on Angie's List and we figured we were getting what we paid for. We also went with him because he told us he has a master carpenter on his crew and we knew we had a lot of carpentry work that was needed.
They began the work when we were away which may have been a mistake. The initial paint job was not exactly the same color we had, there were tons of chipping and bubbling paint and the carpentry work was very poor, lots of cut corners and paint right over rotted wood, which was upsetting since we were paying extra to have the rotted wood replaced. The caulking job was also very poor with many areas not even done. The guys also left a mess.
To his credit, and as was the case throughout,
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very responsive. He spent over and hour and 1/2 in traffic on a Sunday to come out and meet with me twice to discuss my concerns. He had his guys come back but we still had a number of issues. Again,
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came out, met with us and was great.
He came back again with a crew and fixed most of the issues we had but overall I gave them a lower rating because I feel like some of his guys rush and do not take their time to pay attention to detail. I was also disappointed that I had to keep looking things over and calling them back. We had numerous issues that I had to call
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
about such as chipped paint, rotted wood painted over, things not cleaned up, wrong color etc. Each time he responded but overall this project took close to a month to complete because of the issues. In the end things were ok but they still reattached one gutter improperly, did not do a great job caulking on some of the windows and I still have new trim that was put on top of rotted trim on one window. I think
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is a quality guy but this was a big project, he has a big crew and some of his guys do not take pride in their work. He discounted the price a little bit to compensate for some of the issues and I would use them again because it is hard to find an owner of a company like
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
that stands behind his work.
In the end I must say that
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is worth calling because
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is a caring owner and he is willing to stand behind his work. He does not make excuses when things don't go great and makes efforts to address the issues. If I use them in the future I hope to be able to say that my ratings would match all the A's he has received from everyone else.

The house painting and restoration experience we had with this company was a very good one. I would recommend and also use again. Contract was thorough and change orders were drawn up as problem areas were discovered. Carpentry included replacement of busted fascias and shingles, installation of new window sills and moldings, etc. Shingles required different methods of sanding/paint removal. Paint coverage was excellent. Very happy with the results. Workers and work crews were personable and very professional. Costs were fair and within acceptable limits. Again, I recommend this company and we would use them again.

I contracted with this company to paint the wood exterior of my home this past spring (2014). The owner,
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, was prompt in coming to give a verbal estimate, followed up by a written estimate. His prep work was commendable, using a power washer, as well as an oil primer. He used a
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
latex top coat. He also contracted for some minor carpentry work (replacing some slats to a porch arbor, and 2 windows). We used custom colors which he was able to match well. He finished in a timely manner. We did a walk around, identified some details which had not been clearly stated in the estimate - which he completed - with no fuss. Of note, his son and an additional helper were on his crew in the final stages - and some of these details were their responsibility - he apparently had left for other jobs. I was able to catch, and
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
completed, these unfinished details. Of greater concern was the coverage of the paint - we went from dark to light in color. There has been some bleed through from the darker stain/paint onto the lighter color. Have contacted him, assurances were given he'd come by --- that hasn't happened. Fortunately,the bleed throughs can be wiped away with sponge/water. I see this as a problem on two levels: a paint issue, and a painter issue. As mentioned,

-
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
paint was used --- I don't believe it covers well. Would not recommend it. The other is lack of follow up by the painter. Based on these two factors, would not recommend this company.

This company had to stain the large structure in two colors- a large, 3 story wooden egress, with steps, landing, rails, etc. This also included some carpentry work, which he did efficiently and perfectly.
As I said above, I have hired this company to do several large interior jobs at this house, and plan on using them for further interior work as we remodel a kitchen and bath.
The owner was also very responsive when I emailed him and/or called him on his cell phone.

Projects went as smoothly as we could have asked.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was punctual; showed up and left on schedule. Very efficient; brought all tools and materials he needed for job; no lost time for unanticipated visits to hardware store. Very accommodating; did all work requested with minimal instruction. Excellent at suggesting/finding better solutions to work we wanted done. Quality of work was excellent.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was also very efficient; although he charged by the hour, he didn't milk any of the projects. Didn't rush, but didn't waste any time either. Pricing was very fair. He didn't send a bill until all jobs were completed, and he was sure we were satisfied with work. Very pleasant to deal with.

Believe he is a good contractor, but just a little too pricy for me since I only had $7000 from the Ins. Co. to make the necessary repairs. Note
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
: He like many of the other contractors I contacted priced jobs exceptionally high since I believe the summer months was when they acquired the most jobs and they wanted to make up for the lack of jobs available to them during the Winter months. My home is my vacation home in RI state,.

Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is very professional and has high quality standards for his work and the paint/stain products he uses.
He arrived punctually for the initial appointment to see the work needed, and emailed a detailed, concise quote the next day.
We weren't staying with the same stain color, so he stopped by later with sample stain colors on the same type of wood as our deck. I was worried about changing from a dark brown to a cedar color but it came out beautifully.
The screen porch work was very nicely done as well. We needed a color match for a portion of the paint work, and he advised the best stores to handle the color match.
This summer was challenging due to lots of rainy days, but
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew were able to work around the weather and complete the job in a timely manner.

helped me pick a color for both painting and carpet. I was trying to get the condo ready to sell, and we discussed all the details about what would be painted, and timing since I had to get this on the
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
quickly.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very accommodating. I left
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
the key and when I returned at the end of the 4 day period, all the walls were painted including inside the closets, the base boards were painted a contrasting color, and the carpet was laid. All looked very professional. There were a couple of
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
on the wall that the carpet layers made, and
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had the painters come back and do touch up work. As a result of his work and his willingness to work quickly, I was able to get the condo in the hands of the realtor sooner than I expected.

Mr.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his associates were very prompt and professional in all aspects of the job. Our crew actually arrived early on most days, and were never late or no show. No
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
"Oh by the ways". Every aspect of the job was handled exactly as was discussed during the estimate process. I provided the color choices we selected, and they advised on the use of finishes in different areas and why. Job was finished within the parameters that were discussed in advance (5 days total). All mess was cleaned up to satisfaction. All left over paint was left with clear labeling for any future touch-ups.
They were not the cheapest company of the 3 estimates I got, but based upon the prep time / paint time I felt that in the long run HP, Inc was the better value and would do a more thorough job. They did.
Very pleasant experience, would not hesitate to use again.
