Recent Review: Overall we are happy with the way our home turned out. I will start with my short list of gripes. 1. Each time I attempted to contact the company via telephone I ended up speaking with a message service, due to the nature of my job, I am unable to deal with them returning calls while I am at work and due to the odd hours I do work, I sleep during part of the day. The call service issue made communication difficult which is why I had to depend on email. 2. The painters did not put my house numbers back on after the job. Putting the house numbers back onto my house after painting is part of the job as far as I am concerned. Although a minor issue that I was able to correct myself, I should not have had to do this. 3. They left some trash in my back yard. Again a minor issue which took a short amount of time to deal with, but we should not have had to deal with it. 4. Punctuality for the job was an issue. The first day they arrived about 30 minutes late. This was not a big issue, however the second day they did not arrive till close to 10:30. Due to arriving later in the day I had to take vacation hours from work that really should not have needed to be taken. I made it clear that I had to leave for work early afternoon and I would not be available to have the front and garage doors open. Had I not taken a last minute vacation day I do not believe these would have been done in a timely manor. With the exception of gripe #4, these are very minor, I only mention them to explain the blocks I gave a lower rating in. Having to take an unexpected vacation day was a big deal. Over all I am happy with the services provided, the house looks amazing. Nancy was great to work with. When I contacted the company I spoke with Mike, he was polite and we scheduled an estimate. Nancy arrived for the consult and she walked around the house with me and was able to send me an email with a quote the same day. After quotes from multiple companies, I chose to go with Just Details. The quote they gave me was $500 under the next cheapest quote, and Nancy seemed to know her stuff so I was comfortable. I called Mike to accept the bid and told him we had the colors picked out already. He suggested they paint samples on the house to ensure these worked for us. Nancy arrived the following day and painted all 3 colors onto our garage. 2 of the 3 worked for us so I sent an email notifying him and gave him two different colors we were interested in. Nancy arrived and I talked with her as she put the new samples onto the garage. I was not happy with them either and Nancy mentioned she had an idea. She called me about an hour later and suggested a color. We ended up loving the color and went with it. The workers arrived on the scheduled date to accomplish the job although they were a little bit late. They were very professional and finished the job in a short 1 1/2 days. They did not arrive until close to 10:30 on the second day. I ended up having to take the day off from work so they could paint the front door and the garage appropriately since they needed to be open. After I approved the paint job, they finished cleaning and departed. During the walk around I was focused on the paint and did not notice they forgot to put the house numbers back onto the house. Due to the hour, I sent them an email requesting they come back to put the numbers back up. I never did hear back from them, even after a phone call. Being such a minor issue, I put them back on myself. As I stated already, the house looks great and overall we are very happy with the end product.

Recent Review: Crowder came out and gave us an estimated quote. They had to reschedule a few times due to weather. The first day they came out all prep work was done. Then when the weather cooperated they came in to finish. They were very proffessional, all work was cleaned up after and the painting job was excellent. I was most impressed with the care they took painting around the winter dead vines that wrapped around the porch. They did this causing no damage and that took some time effort and care. All around a very good experience and we will definitely call them again.
Recent Review: Total Paint was fantastic! Phil the owner came out and gave a quote, stuck to that quote, and did the job quickly, efficiently, and with great quality. He was easy to work with both in person and since we were traveling was great long distance as well keeping us up to date as work proceeded.
Recent Review: After two ill advised attempts on my own to re-stain my deck with horrible results, I decided to search for someone to do it correctly. I contacted and had 4 contractors come out for estimates, etc. which varied widely and included mostly destroying the village to save the village. Doug was one of the last ones I called and he responded very quickly and professionally. He came to the house and looked at my situation. The previous owner had put on a coating that was impossible to cover over. I was told by other contractors that it would have to be sanded down to bare wood or rebuilt with new wood. Doug immediately came up with a product that would cover and adhere to the finish as is, (saving a ton of money). He came over and helped us pick out a color, showed up on time when he said he would. He and his son were finished in 2 days. Each night when they finished the site was left in pristine condition. The job looked fantastic! We have him do our maintenance every year.
Recent Review: Rafferty construction did a phenomenal job in all respects. They were extremely patient and helpful in color selection. The product that they used to paint and seal the stucco has been exceptionally durable over this last year as has the stain on the wood decking and timbers (I am writing this review 1 year after the work was completed). The team did a great job on stucco repair as well as ensuring absolutely no overspray ANYWHERE. We could not be more pleased. The price was competitive with other companies we received an estimate from, but the work, the attentiveness and the professional of this company were head and shoulders above the others. I would recommend them to anyone looking for exterior painting and we will definitely be calling them in another nine years to get the house painted once again.

Relied exclusively on Angie's List for selecting painter. Very professional and a very nice guy. However, I was disappointed in the quality of the paint job. Had to come back 3 times to touch-up spots where raw wood was showing through after 2 coats were said to have been applied. After last time coming through there are still spots where raw wood is showing. Will need to go through myself and either do another coat or selectively apply another coat. They did do a good job on stripping down the deck to the raw wood - - - the final paint job itself was disappointing because of the number of spots where raw wood was still showing after the 2 alleged coats of paint.

Wonderful job, workmen were quick, clean, professional, and polite. They showed up on time and completed the job in 3 days. Significant amount of prep work required and power wash, Sherman Williams paint and warranty on products and work, recommend primers for certain areas which was all included in bid. They included more "stuff" than the other bids I got. I never got the, "Well you need to prime that and that adds extra money to the bid to do it right." Joseph told me what they would do and explained what I needed and then matched the lowest bid that did not include all the primers and power wash. They showed up for the final walk through and were back within 5 days to do the touch up. THEY ARE WILLING TO PRICE MATCH ANY WRITTEN BID. They do request the written bid for their files.

AR & R Handyman
I originally hired Ron through Dave Bullock, of "Handyman Can" infamy. Dave is a very high-pressure salesman, probably so no one will have time to look at his previous "F" report here on the List. I reluctantly agreed to sign a contract authorizing Dave to buy and install a portable carport for me, as well as doing the work mentioned above, and gave him a check for slightly more than half the amount made out to himself. Fortunately, by the time I did read the report on Dave, I found out Ron would be doing all the work himself. (Ron is no longer associated with Dave, I'm happy to say.) When I changed my mind about the carport, Ron had no problem using the installation fee to paint my bedroom for me instead, but apparently Dave does not intend to reimburse me -- or Ron -- for the carport I did not buy. I say "apparently" because he's never returned any of my calls about it. And it turns out Dave kept all the money from the first check himself, though Ron did 100% of the work. Amazingly, Ron insisted I deduct the $500 for the carport from his own check, because it would be unfair to me to pay for something I never got. (!) He did an excellent job at all the things I asked him to do, and was very knowledgeable about the best and most cost-efficient way to handle them. So I highly recommend him, not only because of his honesty and integrity, but because he just did a great job at everything I asked him to do.

Found Jeff's company listed on Angie's list and gave him a call, and asked for an estimate to refurbish my deck. Had called 2 other companies that never responded. Jeff said he would meet me in an hour and he did. He asked me what I wanted done and provided me with a very reasonable estimate. On the day that work began his assistant was ill so he had to do all the work himself. The first day was spent power washing everything. When he finished all the old grime and stain was gone and the deck was down to bare wood. The second day he sanded the rails and stained the entire deck. It looks great. Jeff was timely, professional and courteous. I plan on having him do my fence in the near future.le

Perfect. He showed up on time every day. Offered me a senior citizen discount after I had already given him a $100 bonus for such a good job. Can't say enough good things about him!!

We re-hired Rafferty Construction after they did a spectacular job on our stucco repair and painting. We needed the rest of our home to be painted, and they did not disappoint. They did an outstanding job once again, very patiently and professionally making our home look brand new again. Down the road we're going to have some interior painting done as well, and we will go with Rafferty again because of the awesome work and professionalism they deliver.
