"When removing wallpaper, they found unfinished drywall in some areas with a lot of nail holes where paneling once was. There were also a lot of nail holes where" trim was around the ceiling and corners. In another area, they found wallpaper on top of older wallpaper backing. It was quite a job, but they put much effort into fixing the damaged spots and getting the walls in shape for paint. The newly painted walls turned out looking great.

"The walls had numerous holes of various sizes and many texture defects. A solid repair effort was made and now there are nothing that catches the eye.

This post clearly illustrated the flaw of bidding/contracting by the amount of materials bought or used - the same problem occurs in flooring and roofing and tile where the material comes in various length and wdith rolls, different amount of laminate or hardwood per box or SF of shingles per bundle. Even in decking- got asked once to give my two bits on an argumewnt between a homeowner and a contractor on fair payment for decking - contractor bid per SF because the final detailed layout was not established at time of bid, homeowner tried to argue that she should not be paying for the gaps between the deck boards, so she wanted to pay only 5.5/6'ths as much for the job because the "2x6" deck boards were actually only 5-1/2" wide.

 

It is safest to pay for the actual area covered by SF (or squares for roofing, 1 square = 100SF), then there is no argument about whether you are paying additional for overlap, partly used rolls or bundles, charging for packages of material bought but not used at all (and the potential for cheating by buying more than necessary), cutoffs or trimmings, etc - let the CONTRACTOR figure the adjustment between the amount that has to be bought to cover a certain area - the homeowner should just pay attention to the actual SF of product in-place.

I just bought a house & called Mr.
San Rafael Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
for a quote to paint the whole interior last Friday (March 6). We scheduled a meet-up for Monday (March 9) at 12:30. When he didn't show, I waited till 1 o'clock & called him wondering where he was. He tells me that he had unexpected family come down from Michigan & that he wouldn't be able to meet me. I was disappointed but tried to understand so we scheduled another meet-up for Wednesday (March 11) at 9 o'clock. Here it is Wednesday & once again, Mr.
San Rafael Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
was a no show & this time I was getting irritated. How could some businessman keep scheduling meet-ups but doesn't show up?! I called him again after waiting 20 minutes, left a message saying how irritated I was & how this was getting ridiculous that he didn't show up again. He calls back saying how busy his current work is & still having family in town & since I feel like this situation is ridiculous, to call someone else & DO NOT call him again. Wow!!!!! Really?!?! Talk about being very unprofessional. Maybe his family can pay his bills since he can't get back to customers willing to pay him for his service!

We hired

again to remove wallpaper from our home office. After contacting

, she arrived at the scheduled time to assess the job and give us an estimate. After we agreed to have the work done, she arrived exactly when scheduled to do the work.

works by herself, works quietly and very professionally, and stays until the work is completed if she has scheduled a one day job.
San Rafael Wall Paper Removers Provider Name Locked
went out of her way to work with us on this office job. We had moved office furniture and a sofa to give her access to two walls, then she offered to take her lunch break at home so we could move the furniture while she was gone to give her access to the other walls.
We have not had any problems in using her wallpaper removal service and would certainly call her again, but she has now removed nearly all the wallpaper in our house except for a couple of borders. We consider

to be a very reliable, efficient service provider.

Bill and crew were great having to pick up on a job that another company failed to complete. So house was peer washed and gaps and cracks filled before painting. Took them about a week. House looks good. Bill stayed in constant communication with us.

was professional. He came the morning the job started and came back in the evening to check out the work of his crew (2 guys). Job was completed in two days. The walls look great! The walls had some slight damage & nail holes- each was repaired and sanded so the walls are very smooth- look brand new. The painting was great, nice lines. Would definitely use this company in the future for both wallpaper removal and/or painting.

Great crews, completed on time with quality work. Owner was responsive, I preferred email and text which he accommodated. Will definitely consider for exterior painting as well. Painless and professional experience. Will recommend.

I feel as if I was ripped off. It was supposed to be one man for 8 hours or divide the time between two men. They came out and spent 90 minutes at my home and stated he was done. He stated the deal was only for one thing or the other but that was not what the promotion stated.
