Recent Review: Mike Thompson and his team did substantial exterior work on our large Victorian home in Wilmington, Ohio, in the Summer of 2017, and we have been extremely satisfied with the high quality, the speed, and the very reasonable cost of the work. We moved into our house in the Fall of 2016, and it needed substantial work. There were large holes rotted out of several places on the eaves, which was allowing birds to enter our attic and causing the gutters to be non-functional. The house also had a paint job that was nearly fifteen years old, and desperately needed a new coat on the entirety of the exterior. Mike let us know that the work on the eaves would be a substantial undertaking because the box gutters themselves had mostly deteriorated. The rate he offered us for the work, however, was much, much lower than two box gutter specialists from the Cincinnati area, and it quickly became clear that we would benefit from someone who knew the area and had worked on many similar homes in the city (as it turned out, Mike’s dad had actually worked on this house when it was temporarily converted into apartments a few decades ago—and that he was responsible for preserving the house’s awesome pocket doors!). Despite several rain delays, Mike and his team had the job done within a few weeks, and the eaves looked like new (after having previously looked like they belonged on an abandoned house). In addition to the gutter work, Mike and his team also did an absolutely fantastic paint job on the entire exterior. We were interested in an authentic polychrome Victorian paintjob for the house, and they more than delivered. With our permission, the team got creative in their work, and we are glad they did. The exterior details of the home (columns, frieze, door) were painted to make them “pop,” where previously many of the embellishments would have been unnoticeable to passersby. We’re not the only ones satisfied with the job: we have had literally dozens of neighbors and other Wilmington residents tell us that they are delighted by the updates—and that the house is once again one of their favorites in the entire city (and if you know Wilmington, you know there are a lot of great houses in this town). Not only was Mike’s original work excellent, but he will soon be returning to patch up a couple of spots that need minor repairs, a service that we’re very grateful for. I know Mike is proud of the work he did on this house, and he should be. We truly live in a stunning house, and we have Thompson Home Improvementto thank for that.
