Recent Review: We own a large house, with a deck and 2 porches, situated in the woods. Therefore, we incur both mildew and moss. By 2010, our house was badly in need of power washing, general carpentry, re-staining and serious roof washing (to get rid of the moss). We solicited quotes from several individuals/companies. Some came to us on the back of business cards or on scraps of paper, some were numbers tossed through the screen door verbally...numbers with no detail and no time frame. Some never came at all. All but one were unable to do the entire job and/or had no previous experience with some of our "unique" problems. "Masterpiece Finishes" owner, Gary Clark, took the time to assess the job completely, then sat down with us to discuss our preferences and goals and offer insights and explanations as needed. (Gary is the type of professional you instantly feel at ease with......like a neighbor.) Within a day, we had a full detailed and guaranteed quote and time frame. We knew what to expect, where each penny was going and when the crew would be on our property. Previous experience had us prepared for a couple of weeks of total MESS. Sometimes, it's delightful to be so wrong! Gary's crew were meticulous. They arrived early and quietly so as not to disturb us if we chose to sleep in. They worked diligently, with very few breaks...in fact I had to offer them iced water/soda, etc. out of genuine concern for their tireless work in such hot and humid conditions. As an example, when they restained our long back deck, they first power washed it, then hammered in any protruding nails (our house is 20 years old), then hand sanded it, then hand stained the deck/railing and spindles/2 stairways with special material to protect against the degree of mildew we attract. I can honestly say it looked better than new when done! As another example, they removed all gutters prior to painting, repainted them and re-attached them when done. No "patchwork approach" with them! During the two weeks the crew was here, they never left a scrap of debris around; they removed, babysat and re-installed our outdoor furniture and plants with TLC, and were both friendly and polite at all times. They became friends. This is our 4th home, so we've had many occasions to hire craftsmen. Next to the builder of our current home, we have NEVER had such quality work by such nice people in all that time. We plan to rehire them do to the inside in the near future, will continue using them for power washing and any outside work which comes up, and will, most certainly, recommend them to any and all who ask. They are outstanding! And, in addition, they are gentlemen and professionals.
