Excellent! They are very expensive, but we learned our lesson...buy cheap, get cheap. The 1st painters we used, we never saw the wood. But these guys? They scraped and sanded down to the wood! They did a very professional job. They were very professional, very polite, very nice, and just excellent all the way around!

ABL did a great job on our living room, repairing water damage around our bay window and painting the whole room. I was impressed by the skillfulness and professionalism of the crew. They showed up everyday at the same time, worked efficiently, and were respectful of the noise as I was home with a baby at the time. Very good first impression of their work and I will be using them again!
