Recent Review: Work was done in a vacation rental condominium. We live out of state and visit once per year to do maintenance. Work was completed in our absence in May 2013. We are getting our first actual look at the results now. We are delighted with the work Matt and his crew have done. We had received estimates from 4 different painters, and chose Manning's based on our experience with Matt Manning during his estimate session with us. He was thorough, professional, and had a large enough crew that we felt confident our unit's rental downtime would be minimal. His proposal included a complete checklist of all the work to be done, as well as the brand, finish and color of paints to be used. We paid 50% up front, and the balance after our property manager reviewed the work. We had considered attempting this job ourselves, but the prospect of removing the ancient wallpaper, re-texturing the walls, and dealing with the master bath's 16' high ceilings and 19 separate wall surfaces was too much for us. THE PROCESS: - The work took place over about 2 weeks in May 2013. - Matt and crew worked with our property manager to gain access to the unit. - Matt provided email updates to us, including pictures, every 2-3 days. - The periodic updates gave us confidence that the work was proceeding on schedule. RESULTS: - One of our concerns was that the texturing might suffer after wallpaper removal, but the texturing is beautiful, and matches perfectly the rest of the unit. - The coatings are even. No blotches or bare spots anywhere. - The edging and corner work is precise. No spillovers or jagged lines. - There is definite pride in workmanship here. . We feel fortunate to have found a painting contractor of Manning's quality for our rental unit, and we would not hesitate to work with them again for future jobs.
