The finished product is beautiful. Ray did a wonderful job and the areas painted look terrific. Because Ray was dealing with personal issues, he worked alone for this entire project; as a result, it took far longer than I had anticipated. Perhaps hiring an additional person or two would help. That said, he did come in at the 7th day of his 8 day "worst case" estimate. I feel the price was high in light of the time it took to finish the job. We'd been given to believe that there would be more than one person working and had anticipated it taking around 4 to 41/2 days, not 7, especially since it is a small house and needed very little in the way of repairs. The mark for professionalism is the result of Ray being constantly interrupted by phone calls, usually dealing with his other business. Other contractors we've had working on the house this summer have directed their calls to voicemail and addressed those queries when they took their break. Again, we are very pleased with the outcome of the project. Ray's work is without fault.
