and his crew were timely and courteous throughout the process. We used the acrylic latex paint on the exterior and the home looks beautiful. We had a hole in our kitchen ceiling from water damage and after

We purchased a new-to-us condo that had been built in the 80s. It needed a complete make-over.
and his crew did everything we asked and more, offering suggestions when we we're sure what we needed. His attention to every last detail was truly impressive. Because of his perfectionism, the job took a little longer than originally anticipated but the result was so-o-o-o worth it because the condo turned out great! We'd hire him again for any other similar work. Highly recommend!!

My experience with
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was horrible. Before the job started I did some research on-line, but found very few reviews. The one or two I found were negative. When I confronted Dido
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
(the owner) asking about it, he said that not all jobs go great, you can't satisfy everyone (dead giveaway that you intend to satisfy no one), and some people are trying to destroy his business, but most customers are happy and my job would be done to my satisfaction. I bought it – HUGE mistake. The job was to paint the interior of my house including walls, ceilings, moldings, doors, closets etc. We agreed on $9,500 and it was to be completed in 3 weeks, by January 1st, 2014 while we were away on vacation. I insisted on the highest standard of wall repair and finish, and spent a lot of time with Dido going over what was and wasn't acceptable. He indicated that he understood and would make sure everything was done right. When my wife and I came back from vacation on January 2nd we found the place partially painted, with multiple quality issues and damage to the house. Our recently installed hardwood floors were burned in 5 places by halogen lights and severely scratched by their equipment. The windows' wooden frames were painted shut and many of them broke or cracked upon opening (had to be cut open). The crew also damaged a ceiling fan. In the bathroom, the plastic tub and the toilet seat also had fresh, deep scratches. Finally the woodwork and walls they worked on were damaged by rework and carelessness often beyond repair. They applied clear polyurethane right over left over smudges of compound and paint, making them permanent. The quality of work was amateurish at best. The walls had multiple unrepaired or very poorly repaired spots. After we'd point them out, they would try to fix them, with varying level of success. Sometimes it took 4 attempts and it still was not right. As I later found out from one of the employees, Dido trains his people to cut corners and do things fast. They paint first and then see if it looks “good enough”. Having to point out problems is exhausting, and them redoing things of course takes time and money. As soon as they started losing money on the project, all the interest in doing it right, or even completing the job, went out the window. All along Dido was absent from the work site. He would pop in for a second to see the progress. At some point he left for Congo, where he apparently has other businesses that he runs in that country. The job was never completed. I was finally forced to hire other people to do the garage, basement and the hallway that were never touched by

, and to correct and finish the rest of the house. The total sum paid by me out of pocket to clean up the mess that
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
left behind was over $7,000. When I confronted him asking to cover some or all of the losses, the answer I got was: “I'm not paying you a dime”. Of course I didn't see a dime to cover the damage to my house either. I think
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is a predatory business, taking advantage of consumers by using false statements, empty promises, or blatant
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. Dido bids below what he can do the job for (later admitting he did so because he knew he wouldn't get the job otherwise). Then he

up the price, extends the time-line and compromises on quality.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is NOT a registered Home Improvement Contractor, which violates Mass GL 142A, since they advertise and perform multiple types of work (carpentry, floor refinishing, wall repair, exterior painting), not just interior painting, which is exempt from the registration requirement (but still there are plenty of painters who are registered). It is a good idea to hire only registered HIC businesses, because in case you run into issues, there are means of dealing with them and holding them accountable. There is a complaint system, an arbitration process conducted by a qualified person, pool of money that will cover whatever the business owes you etc. Not getting involved with unreliable, shady companies like
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Paining is, of course, the best way to avoid problems. You don't want to find yourself in a situation I was in – paying $7,000 out of pocket to fix/finish a job that was over 90% paid for once already, and having to live with all the damage they left behind. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

We have had some trouble with other painting companies in the past.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
the owner provided great communication before and during the work.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
the lead foreman for the job was fantastic. He tried to exceed expectations and if ANYTHING needed corrected he would resolve issue quickly.
Several other team members provided detailed work as well.
If you would like efficient, neat and quality work you will not be disappointed.
Granted the price may not be the cheapest but the old saying you get what you pay for does apply here - I learned that the hard way using a different company on interior.

is great to work with. We did a major interior remodel. Trying to stay on schedule is difficult at best. Even though this is his busiest time of the year he was able to reschedule his work to time with our other contractors. He worked through his weekend to keep us on track. His pricing is very competitive and his quality of work is second to none. We will be using him to paint the exterior of our house later this summer. We highly recommend that you give him the opportunity for your business.

The Initial estimate was made on 5/9. I was stranded in California due to thunderstorms closing DFW the day before. I spoke with the estimator on the phone and we worked up two estimates. I asked him to email me the estimates, but he refused. He mailed them. I understood why, the estimates were handwritten and hard to decipher. I immediately signed off on the gutter work as soon as I received the mail, but it took nearly TWO months for the work to be performed. I was still in the process of moving from NJ so I was absent for extended periods of time. During that time a thunderstorm blew down a downspout that I had contracted to be securely attached. Another contractor put this on the driveway where it was apparently picked up by the city or a scavenger. So by the time
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
showed up the job had increased from attach loose downspout to replace downspout.
When the work team came out I was at work. The team lead could not read the estimate drawing. He told me the design that was estimated was flawed and he needed other parts. He made partial repairs but then had to return the next day. The work team left behind one large 8" spike and one small white headed machine screw which I considered unprofessional. The hit on punctuality has to do with the remarkably long time it took to perform service which allowed the situation to degrade which ended up costing me more money.
The new gutter does look good and I am please with the resulting work, but I can't deal with a contractor with this level of service. There is too much work to do and I don't like contractors who require this level of handholding and supervision. So I'm not pursuing the $2700 estimate for the full exterior trim paint job.
Oh, one more annoying thing. After having waited two months for service and struggling through a repeat visit and cleaning up after the work crew, the salesman had the nerve to call me five days after the bill was emailed to me and ask if I've paid it yet. Really? I wish he had cared about the job more to have scheduled it quickly. I have paid but have requested the company not contact me further about any future work (This review does not supersede that instruction on "no contact". I have provided the information in this review to the salesperson, on the phone and provided it in writing on the invoice when I paid the bill. This should not be a surprise.)

AMAZING!! There are absolutely no words to describe how pleased I am with

and his sons,

and
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, and our experience with their business in painting our home.
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
provided a fast and clear estimate to paint our home, (which was very dark brown with even darker brown trim) - to a beautiful white with black shutters. This of course took extra care to ensure coverage and quality. Honestly, I have never seen such care taken by any prior contractor I have ever dealt with. The quality of their work is unsurpassed!

Our whole experience with
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
has been exceptional from the word go. They are EXTREMELY customer oriented. The gentleman who did the original estimate was not pushy at all, and provided his expertise and opinion on certain painting options when we asked. We had the exterior of our house repainted along with a wooden fence. We were so impressed with the responsiveness of the estimator - we sent several emails after 5pm and received responses from him in minutes! - that we didn't even bother getting a second estimate.
The team of two guys that came out to the house to paint were very courteous, punctual and helpful. I was 8 months pregnant and wasn't able to handle a lot of stress - and these guys understood how stressful work on the house could be. They checked in with me every morning before they started work, and checked in with me at the end of each day to have me review what they accomplished and to talk about the work for the next day. They were very detail oriented and clearly took pride in their work - it showed because they pointed out the small details they corrected or fixed even before my husband and I could point them out.
We used the Angie's list coupon to get our windows cleaned for free (it's a $200 value!) with
Elkton Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and they did a great job. At an additional small fee, they installed a screen door to the front of our house that we've been meaning to do for months now. Wow!
We were very happy with the results! We identified a broken lightbulb in a really inaccessible spot near the roof and some pigeon netting that needed to be put back in place. Without question, they came out the next day to fix those two items. They were great to work with and we'd highly recommend them to anyone.
