Alan is industrious, efficient and did a fine job on two nasty popcorn ceilings that I had abandoned after one frustrating attempt. We agreed in advance who would purchase which supplies. I bought the paint after he estimated the amount needed, and he brought all his own drop cloths, painting equipment and supplies. The small amount for one-use supplies was added to the invoice. Alan arrived early and got right to work. He helped move some of the furniture that I couldn't move myself and offered to rearrange obstacles as he progressed. He did a great prep, carefully taping and draping. The result was a good even paint job on a challenging surface with so little cleanup, I couldn't believe it- just a few popcorn sprinkles to vacuum up and no drips. The closet door issue was addressed as requested. Sometimes it takes an extra pair of hands even to plan the repair for later. I would definitely hire Alan back for another project.
