Gary Clark and his crew not only prepared and painted my house professionally and cleaned up after themselves, but Gary also proposed sanding, repairing, and staining my back deck to restore it. His estimated price for this extra work was reasonable, so I agreed to add it to the house painting. The deck now looks like new after years of neglect (by me). My house looks fabulous, too, especially with the like-new back deck and vinyl shutters painted a new, vibrant color. I cannot recommend Masterpiece Finishes more highly.

It could not have gone better. Gary was phenomenal to deal with. He is pleasant, courteous, and always answers his cell phone. My house is a very high 2 story contemporary. It got a new roof last year and Gary was very patient and came back 2x to apply 8 different color samples on both the front and back of the house. We had a problem with the garage door openers leaving an oil stain streak on the doors, so he suggested and applied a contrasting paint to the doors and their trim. Looks great! In the process of powerwashing they ended up also powerwashing the front stairs and sidewalk even though it was not part of the contract. To save some money and because I like to paint, we did not opt to have the 2 decks stained by Masterpiece. Even thought they were not staining the decks, Gary got enough stain so we would have enough (a price savings to us) and - the best part - they ended up spraying the underside of the upper deck so I didn't have to do it! He also recommended a product to use on the deck surfaces and they look great too. Cannot say enough about his work ethic and professionalism. We are having him back this winter to do some interior painting.

We were very pleased with our experience. Dave's office was able to schedule a visit for an estimate the first time we called (unlike many service providers in the area who never even return phone calls), and they were able to schedule the work in a timely fashion, despite being a busy part of the season. The pricing was reasonable, and Dave was able to accommodate our specific requests (a specific type of cleaning solution and stain) with no difficulty. The quality of work was excellent. Highly recommended on all counts!

Dwain, Patrick, and the guys worked diligently and tirelessly to complete this major project. Every part of the deck was custom, so they did a lot of prep work to locate materials, etc. before building. Throughout the project, Dwain was in constant communication--they wanted to be sure that we were happy on a daily basis. Any problems they encountered, they troubleshot with ease. The deck was completed totally within estimate and three weeks earlier than the target date. I cannot say enough good things about the Decksperts--my husband and I felt from the moment they pulled up to our house that they were the right people to do our project, and we were never disappointed. We have and will continue to recommend them to anyone who needs a deck built. Their work is solid, beautiful, and high quality.

The job went amazingly well. He arrived and promptly started working. He needed to make two trips because of inclement weather. He first came out and cleaned the deck, the next trip he finished applying two coats of the product. What a difference it made! It looks and feels like a new deck! I will call Mr. Fixit for any job I have around the house. Trustworthy, prompt, responsive and professional....what more can you ask for!

These guys are so nice to work with and do a great job! The siding looks new again. I had them do the deck and deck stairs to blow off as much of the old paint as they could - and they did - before I repaint it. It's all good!

I chose Dave not only for the favorable reviews, but also the unfavorable ones. It may seem like an oxymoron selecting someone based on an unfavorable review, but I think you can learn about a company based on how they respond to a critical review. If you notice, Dave responds to a lot of his reviews; I asked him about the unfavorable ones & he was very forthright & professional in his response. I do not regret my decision to go with DLHI. The entire organization from Dave, his office and the painting crew were always prompt, courteous, and determined to ensure that I was satisfied. Add me to the "A" column.

We have a large house (built in 1926) with a family room addition (built in 1993) and a pool/pool deck. When Gary Clark (Owner of Masterpiece) came to estimate the job, I was immediately impressed by his listening skills! (I'd already met with three other painters and ruled two of them out before they got to the end of my driveway because they were so dismissive of my concerns.) Gary clearly understood the carpentry help we'd need before painting could begin, and wasn't at all put off by that work. As we walked around the house discussing the project, I pointed out some areas where the paint from our last paint job bubbled in just a couple years, as well as a peak on the end of the family room roof that the prior painter skipped all together. He told me what he thought might be the problem with the bubbling, and assured me he would address it if he got the job. I was not intending to have any work done on the pool deck, but Gary asked if he could include a power-wash and staining of it in his estimate. (I liked his initiative!) We got his estimate...by far the MOST THOROUGH estimate we'd ever received for painting....and were impressed again. His estimate included all the carpentry work for the house and the pool deck work and still beat all his competitors with whom I spoke. (Not one of the competitors was willing/able to include the carpentry work, so that was going to be an add-on expense for us.) Shortly after we returned from a lengthy vacation, I called to give him the green light to start and he was at our house the following week. He arrived each morning around 8, and never left before 5. One day he worked until about 7:30 so he could finish up the carpentry and get to the scraping, etc. the next day. His carpentry work was spot-on and he did the best scraping and sanding job we've ever seen. (He put down cloths to contain the paint chips and cleaned up, immaculately.) His work included priming the entire house after scraping/sanding; two coats of paint on the house, window trim, fascia boards, soffits, ceilings on two large side-porches; painting of spindles on the front and one of the side porches; painting the lattice work on one of the side porches; painting the floors of all three porches; painting the kitchen door; and staining the wooden parts of the pool deck. We ended up needing a bit more carpentry work than we'd first discussed, but the additional cost for that was minimal. We couldn't be happier with his work and would encourage everyone to give him a chance to estimate your job. He's got an incredible work ethic, and is very easy to talk with about any concerns you might have. He even grinned every time my husband called him someone else's name. When I posted some pictures of our newly painted house on Facebook for our friends and family to see, I wrote on my post "Love our painter." He's FANTASTIC! As a side note: When I called the painter who "came in 2nd" to tell him we'd chosen a different painter, he asked if we were going with Masterpiece. When I said yes, he told me Gary does very good work. That made me feel even better about our choice.

Matthew and a helper showed up on one of the hottest, sunniest, and most humid days of the summer and repainted the deck, with most of the painting being done while the sun was on the deck. By the following day we knew we were not going to be happy with the job as done. The deck was streaky with dull and shiny areas which we believe were caused by the heat. We called Matthew and he came out to look at the deck. He agreed to repaint the deck and said he'd call us in approximately two weeks to tell us when he'd be coming to re-paint. Now, approximately six weeks later, we have not heard from him and the deck still looks terrible. All-terior called us shortly after this report was posted and agreed to repaint the deck. He arrrived when he said he would, quickly and efficiently repainted, and was polite and pleasant. We are pleased with the final result and would consider All-terior in the future.

As usual Mark and his team got the work done on time and on budget, I have used JHI several times over the last 15 years from major jobs such as replacing my deck and bathroom remodel to floor refinishing and door replacement and have always been highly satisfied with the quality of work,professionalism and price. I would highly recommend JHI for any of your home improvement needs.
Recent Review: Bob and his crew did an excellent job. First of all, Bob communicated with me about the estimate, schedule and progress very well. I was informed if there is any change due to the weather. Bob worked with us to choose the right stain, paint and color. I appreciate that they really care how the painting is turned out and would suggest and do extra coat if necessary. Once he found the garage door paint looked lighter than we had expected, he suggested to change to the darker paint. For the bulkhead that he had already done, he repainted to match the garage door. It is a pleasure to work with Bob and his crew! Definitely will use them again.
Recent Review: Aardvark did a superb job power-washing and spray-painting the aluminum siding on my house and garage, as well as painting my shutters and doors. If you're looking for perfection and attention to every little detail, as well as honest and wonderful people to deal with, Aardvark can't be beat. I highly recommend them!
Recent Review: I had a number of different painters. These guys took out 4 layers of wallpaper and we had the windows open and the dust was coming out like clouds while they were cleaning. These guys would get a crew and keep going at it and they would keep going until they are done. You pay for it but it is worth it. For all the painting he did I paid $10000 but it literally transformed the place. He did 4 rooms, a huge hallway and a stairwell. The stairwell had tonnes of wallpaper which they removed. They are magicians. They did the interior and exterior and they are totally aware of the lead abatement rules. It is assumed that any house built before 1957 automatically has lead paint and everything has to be shielded and wrapped. Will McCarthy is the owner. They do interior, exterior and power washing.
Recent Review: The overall project went very well. Two to three days to remove decking, chip out and cut metal lally columns from exiting concrete patio beneath existing deck. About 4-5 days to install new deck, railings and stairs. Finishing touches outstanding. Workmen very professional and courteous. We had 3 contractor quotes and H & H Remod was the middle quote. We chose H & H because we had them remodel a bathroom in the lower level of our raised ranch in the past and were very pleased with the results of that project. So even though they were not the low bidder on the project we chose them because we were familiar with their craftsmanship first hand.
Recent Review: They did a great work, excellent work tin replacing everything on my deck. They were very prompt, professional, courteous and responsive. Excellent and reasonable pricing, no problems with their service at all.
