    Michael Angelo Custom Painting Inc
    We didn't hire Michael Angelo Custom Painting directly. He was the paint and stains sub of the shady Contractor that we hired to remodel our house. Mike's crew was in charge of painting the interior and exterior of our house and staining our new kitchen cabinets. We had several issues with Mike and his crew and we're extremely disappointed with his unprofessionalism, lack of ethics, and poor workmanship. Mike and his painters acted like Chatty Cathys during the course of our remodel, many times offering unsolicited opinions regarding the paint color selections. Mike was not proactive and his negative attitude caused my husband and I a great deal of stress and anxiety. His crew left the job several times without locking up the house and even misplaced the keys once. Prior to painting the exterior, Mike failed to inform us about Sherwin William's ColorSnap Visualizer app, an app that allows you to preview the color prior to paint. My husband initially didn't like the color that I chose and we considered paying Mike to repaint the house (bet Mike was thinking cha ching $$$). My Daughter, suggested that we paint the stucco pop outs in white to break up the paint color and add contrast (which really saved our paint job and our money). When my Daughter texted Mike to get his thoughts, Mike replied "I don't think that will make a difference. Its not going to change the body color." This Debbie Downer sure knows how to rain on our parade. Mike took it upon himself to get involved in the dispute between the Contractor and my Daughter. Several times, Mike would say he didn't want to get involved, he just wants to do his job. Mike also said that he was going to do a good job no matter what. It turns out that not only does Mike like to gossip, he is also a dishonest person. Several weeks before Mike's crew was scheduled to complete their job, we reached out to him to request a walk through of his work. Mike responded "our walkthrough should be after every trade is done. We will do any touch ups then." In a later text, Mike replied "I want to wait on the inside until carpet is installed cause those guys usually scratch the baseboards and walls. We are probably going to have to touch up bathrooms and kitchen after tile as well." As of 11/15, the project was abandoned by the Contractor and his subs, including Michael Angelo Custom Painting. My daughter sent Mike several text messages requesting Mike to return to the job to complete/ correct his defective/ unfinished/ shoddy work and to give him an opportunity to make good on his word. To date, Mike has not completed a walk through and all text messages have gone unanswered. We received the unconditional waiver of release from Michael Angelo Custom Painting, which means he was paid in full for subpar work.

    Mike and his crew are the real deal. As a general contractor I will not use anybody else for my work, as I don���t trust anybody but Mike to handle my valuable customers. He is meticulous, detailed, professional and the work is above and beyond. Hire Mike and you will not be disappointed.

    They met the original deadline well. When an unexpected situation that required replacing a portion of our house siding days before our open house occurred, they really went above and beyond to help us. We will definitely use them again.

    The Joshua Group - Licensed Contractor/Handyman
    DO NOT hire this company. The owner is Dale Ellis and his son is Brandon Ellis, the guy you'll ultimately work with, when he decides to show up. We have been 'taken' before and we were sure to do our research this time and not hire deadbeats. We failed. PLEASE let our mistake be your lesson. Do not give them one cent! During our consultations (that they were always late to - we should have known something was wrong), they gave us ALL the right 'feels', words and plans prior to hiring them and even into the first few visits. They even proclaimed their Christianity as a means to 'seal the deal'. They kept saying things like "we want you to love this when we are done, so let's do it right." I will admit that Brandon's vision and plan matched with what I wanted (or perhaps he just made it sound that way). Everything we asked for they told us was doable in some manner. Changes were happily included by them and re-worked into the contract. (However, we had to keep asking for the contract to be re-written and re-sent so we had the most updated version.) We were given a staggered payment plan that timed out to the end of the project leaving 10% to be paid at our final inspection and satisfaction. It all appeared to be a safe choice and going well...... The architect they use (which they made us pay for up front: $3700), David Palacios, does work for them as his second job so expect to wait and wait and wait for those plans to be finished on his time. The plans took THREE MONTHS to get approved by the City of Fresno. The Joshua Group said it was out of their hands but they also weren't doing anything proactive like calling and asking for updates or pushing the city to finish because they told us they were afraid to make them mad. (If contractors aren't brave enough to ask about their own jobs, no one wins.) This made me wonder if they had already done something to tick the city off and now all of The Joshua Group plans would be held up. It's something to definitely consider before you hire them. (PLEASE don't hire them!) Once demo finished, we saw slow but steady progress until the first inspection that we failed miserably. (They told us they had never failed an inspection.) The fixes were made (after needing the architect and his timeline again) and worked only resumed after my husband went down to the City and asked about our plans. They were approved the next day. Hmm, funny how that works. Over the course of the four months they were with us at first they were arriving at my home at 8:15. However, when demo was done, frequently, they would arrive between 9:30 and 10:00am and leave around 5:00. BUT, there were several days they only worked until 12:00 or 2:00 and about 3 days they worked until 6PM. The crew they employed were unskilled, scary and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my home in their hands when Brandon wasn't on site, which was often. They were also messy leaving water and gatorade bottles and their lunch remnants everywhere. Our cabinets were not all correctly ordered or inspected by this contractor upon delivery and we still do not have things we paid for like pull-out shelving and trash can cabs. Some cabs were even the wrong size and we ended up paying for more cabs due to HIS errors! He was supposed to extend a wall and didn't which led to the wrong cabinet sizes. There was not enough tile to complete the back splash and now we are left buying more. Once he discovered he didn't have enough money to complete the job he WALKED OUT AND QUIT. He told us we were unable to be satisfied and complained too much about his workers being unskilled, slow, and not on time (all of which they were). After taking time off work to get other estimates to complete the job, our best financial decision was to try to get him to come back and finish. He agreed but after that we were so afraid to say anything remotely negative in fear that he would again walk. Looking back, it would have been better to do that but we were doing our best to just get it finished. We had a May 27th deadline for our daughter's high school graduation party which they knew about for months. (We hired them on November 19th.) Once Brandon knew he had us against a wall he started asking for more money, telling us he only had $300 to his name. He did this at least five times in the last few weeks we were with them. In one of our last contacts to Dale, he admitted that he had used our money for another project they were working on and could not do anything more until they had more money. His last words were, "I'll get back to you ASAP with a plan". That was 2.5 weeks ago and they have not many any contact attempts to update us on when they might be back over to complete our kitchen. They left our kitchen with no running water, spotty exposed electrical wires, no means of cooking food, and no flooring. These are the major items, there is also still all the finish work (caulking, painting, shelving, tiling, etc.) that is undone. Please do yourself a favor and hire someone else. Just don't even tempt fate with Dale or Brandon Ellis.

    Duration Painting Inc
    Went well but felt there was not enough communication. Agreed with Mike on the job and the painters showed up as scheduled. The job took a couple days longer than anticipated (just over a week). The price is fair, the job was done to satisfaction. The only area where they could have done better is their communication. I never saw Mike after we agreed on the job and he never took the initiative to call and ask about the job or provide a status from his end.

    Jack Sanders Painting Inc
    I was very pleased with the work done. They repaired some stucco, and some siding, then painted everything, stucco and trim. It was completed in about 3 days, and the workers were very good about cleaning up at the end of each day.

    Duration Painting Inc
    It was fabulous. They did a really good job. Our contractor hired them. The service turned out very well. We did a complete garage build out and painted the house to match. I would say 3 to 4 workers did the work. They cleaned up the area very well.

    Duration Painting Inc
    Perfectly. It took a little long (I think about 5 days) but the results were really worth it. The two guys working on site were professional and very detail oriented. Mike, the owner, could not have been easier to work with. My elderly mother decided she wanted to change the paint color after we told Mike and he came out; said no problem; whatever she wants (as it turns out my mom did in fact go with the original color she chose). I cannot recommend Duration more strongly.

    Michael Angelo Custom Painting Inc
    After I paid for the deal on Angie's list I contacted Michael Angelo Custom Painting. Mike came out within a couple of days. I picked the colors when he came out. I needed some boards on the trim of my house to be replaced before I could have it painted. Mike provided a variety of paint samples to pick from. I basically knew what colors I wanted. The trim color he had was even a better color than one than I had a sample of. Mike worked with me to schedule the painting after I had the boards replaced. The power wash was done on the first day, which only took a couple of hours. The second day the painter put primer paint where it was needed. The house and part of the trim was done in one day. The third day the trim was finished. The job they did made the house look like new again. I am so happy with the job. The painters did such a good job. They were professional yet very nice. The whole experience of working with Michael Angelo Custom Painting very very favorable.

    Michael Angelo Custom Painting Inc
    What do you get when you take a team of highly skilled painters and match them up with Dunn-Edwards quality paint? You get a plain house turned into a work of art! Hence the name : Michael Angelo Custom Painting. The colors and their contrast look wonderful-Michael was able to help me Maximize the effect of what was trim color and what should be in the house Color. My rain gutters look so amazing, and my security doors look brand new! I found Michael, Frank and Dominic to be so meticulous about seeing That paint did not end up in places NOT appropriate, especially on my new vinyl siding siding on the front of the house. The price was reasonable, But commensurate to the fine quality of work done on my home. When I am ready Michael will be painting the interior of my home And also update my kitchen cabinets. :)
