Came to house for free estimate, and worked hard to fit me into schedule as we were preparing house to sell soon. He was honest about what he could and could not do. When we realized the ceiling was worse than thought at first, he was honest and did not charge me, even though he had been to our home twice. I liked the idea of a flat rate per-hour fee for doing our to-do list. Would hire again.

Terrible. They didn't know how to run the machine to re-texture the ceiling. The texture is inconsistent, there are cracks, the paint is streaky.

Scott and his sons removed popcorn ceilings, made needed repairs and completed knock down ceilings in our kitchen and dining room. Very happy with the end result! Clean up provided by Scott and his team was great!

Jay and his partner did a great job. The ceiling stain-blocking, re-popcorning, and repainting blended extremely well with the rest of the ceiling. He also touched up an area in the upper level of the house. The toilet installation went well and he provided recommendations for future work in the bathroom when the time comes. I appreciated Jay providing a detailed proposal of the job which included service cost for me to react to and provided an estimated time when he would be able to complete the job.

He arrived on-time. Handled patching of the wall pretty quickly. The ceiling had bowed from the water leakage, plus covered with popcorn. He re-secured the ceiling to the joists, painted and patched as needed. The difficulty was dealing with a popcorn ceiling and trying to make the repair blend in. That was a difficult task and not 100% successful, but certainly much improved over the staining and sagging of the ceiling board.

This review was incorrectly posted under another handyman service. (Gerald) Mr. Granger at Hire a Husband is the one who did not respond to my inquiries regarding what I could purchase in advance of his coming. He was a half hour late and then had to run to Home Depot to get materials, some of which I could have had on hand. He misrepresented himself by not having the extruder and other equipment needed to do popcorn ceilings. I would have learned that if he had told me to buy the spray on product before he came. I checked on him after a long time, and he was still on the first project and spraying on the popcorn paint (which did not match) and slowly poking at it with a paint brush to try to match the popcorn texture. I paid him for his time, but had him leave so I could get someone else to finish the rest of the job correctly.

He was one-half hour late. In two emails I had asked what materials I could provide for his work. He never responded to that. After arriving late, he asked whether there was a Menards nearby. He was gone for about another half hour. The hole in the bathroom had black mold, which is generally removed. He did not remove the mold, her sprayed over it with a silicon substance. The bathroom could have been done in half an hour. I had specifically told him that I needed a popcorn ceiling and he said he could do that. He did not have a popcorn machine for that purpose. He said that he had had one but there were always mechanical issues When I went into the bathroom to check, he had sprayed a popcorn, canned material and, because that never matches a popcorn ceiling, he was using a paint brush to create a popcorn similar to the ceiling. He worked so slowly that the other three patched were not completed though he was here for over the three three hours purchased. I told him that I would hire someone with the correct equipment to finish the work.

It went very well. They gave a careful estimate, showed up on time, did excellent work, and were friendly and generally a delight to work with. They were also very good at cleaning up when they left each day and at the end of the job. They took less time to complete the work than we anticipated.

Excellent, I strongly believe no one in the Twin Cities or State of Minnesota is more talented and Professional than Todd and Dan's Crew. I was so impressed by some previous work performed by Shelton's Painting, I hired them to scrape the popcorn off of my ceilings. The end result.....My ceilings look flawless. I have been in other homes where the same type of work was done and I can see some imperfections. Todd, Dan and their crew will make sure you do not see any. Not only did they Scrape the ceilings to perfection they also repaired and even re-taped many areas that had not been done properly and were covered up with the popcorn texture. I had 2 water spots on the ceiling from the previous owners of the house and Shelton Painting removed both of them. When the ceiling was originally installed, there were some areas were the ceiling drywall had not been taped. Shelton Painting recognized this and repaired the issue as well as many other small repair issues at no extra cost. What was even more impressive, Dan one of the owners came out to the residence after hours and visibly inspected the job performed and made any necessary repairs to make sure the ceiling looked flawless. This type of job can be extremely messy, however Todd, Dan and their crew made sure everything was protected and cleaned, leaving the area the same as it was before the job began. These guys are the best!

Recent Review: Andrew was wonderful! After the initial phone conversation, he had a an estimate to me within 3 days. He was very accommodating to my schedule and pleasant to do business with. His workmanship is wonderful! The outcome was better then I had hoped in both repair jobs. He is professional, friendly, and very courteous. He finished in a shorter time frame than estimated and the final cost was lower than the original estimate. I would not hesitate to recommend him and will likely contact him again with some upcoming projects.
