New paint freshens up Cooper City town house
Before Angie’s List member Jackie Kalis and her husband, Eric, moved into their Cooper City, Florida, town house, they knew it needed a fresh coat of paint. For a while, Jackie considered doing the work on her own, but the two-story tall living room ceiling and tons of trim to cut into changed her mind.
Jackie, a reporter and editor, checked Angie’s List for painters in her area, and after obtaining multiple quotes, she decided to hire Robert J. Gagner, a highly rated painter in Davie, Florida.
“He had several positive reviews, and is based near my home,” she says. “His price was less than half of the other quote I received, and he was significantly more flexible with coming to my house at a convenient time for me. I have a full-time job and a long commute, so that was very much appreciated.”
According to Jackie, Gagner gave her great advice about color that never would’ve crossed her mind. Gagner and his crew painted the den, family room, dining room, kitchen, upstairs hallway and trim throughout the house. “My home includes two-story walls with crown molding at the top, and the end result is flawless,” she says. “Bob and his crew even corrected mistakes made by the previous owners.”
Jackie says the $1,450 price rose slightly because she asked Gagner to do additional work after he started. She says she found a winner in Gagner. “My favorite thing about my newly painted walls is the rich, beautiful color and perfectly smooth finish,” she says. “Bob’s team meticulously prepped the surface before painting, and their extra effort visibly paid off.”
