House Painting reviews in Belchertown

    Masterpiece Finishes
    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.

    Drinkwine Interiors

    Decorative skim coat on ceiling��in master bath and bedroom was peeling off so it all had to be scraped off. Then smooth skim coat��was applied, sanded, primed and painted two coats.

    Border print was removed from master bedroom walls. Walls were patched, sanded and painted two coats. Heater covers were also painted wall color. Living room and hallway ceilings were painted. Walls were patched, sanded and painted two coats. Heater covers and interior of front door were also painted wall color. Trim on doorways, windows��and walls was left alone (current stain did not need to be redone).

    Exterior trim including decorative squares under front windows, overhead garage doors, gutters and downspouts and overhang were all painted. Exterior of front door was painted to match new shutters. New shutters were hung.

    Bob and Deana were always prompt and very professional. They made sure there was no mess made and��used vacuum attachment on their sander as they worked. They used drop cloths to cover floors, rugs and heavy furniture left in living room. Everything was kept very clean. When they started to paint the exterior and saw that the color I picked out was not really matching the brick, they stopped and called me. When I saw the color, I agreed, this was not the color I pictured. So Deanna helped me pick out a color that would be a better match.

    Now that everything is completed, it looked really great, just like a new house outside and in!���� I would definitely recommend them to family and friends!

    Started great with nice work. Ended with poor workmanship quality and them needing to get to the next job. They will claim we asked for all kinds of extras ( looked at their Angie reviews), but we only asked for agreements to be lived up to. We had to do a lot of work to keep up with appropriate clean up as job went on.  Overall feeling was they took on a job out of their  league.  Probably a great company for small jobs. Not a great company for bigger jobs.

    Bob Peters Painting
    The siding of our building was old, dried out and faded.  Bob and his crew did a terrific job washing, scraping and painting the building.  I was really impressed with how quickly the work was done and how very neat they were with everything.  The crew was professional and courteous.  Bob has a good sense of color and was very helpful with assisting us with our choice too.  I would definitely recommend him  for any painting project!

    Etinde Painting

    My experience with Etinde painting was horrible. Before the job started I did some research on-line, but found very few reviews. The one or two I found were negative. When I confronted Dido Etinde (the owner) asking about it, he said that not all jobs go great, you can't satisfy everyone (dead giveaway that you intend to satisfy no one), and some people are trying to destroy his business, but most customers are happy and my job would be done to my satisfaction. I bought it ��� HUGE mistake.

    The job was to paint the interior of my house including walls, ceilings, moldings, doors, closets etc. We agreed on $9,500 and it was to be completed in 3 weeks, by January 1st, 2014 while we were away on vacation. I insisted on the highest standard of wall repair and finish, and spent a lot of time with Dido going over what was and wasn't acceptable. He indicated that he understood and would make sure everything was done right.

    When my wife and I came back from vacation on January 2nd we found the place partially painted, with multiple quality issues and damage to the house. Our recently installed hardwood floors were burned in 5 places by halogen lights and severely scratched by their equipment. The windows' wooden frames were painted shut and many of them broke or cracked upon opening (had to be cut open). The crew also damaged a ceiling fan. In the bathroom, the plastic tub and the toilet seat also had fresh, deep scratches. Finally the woodwork and walls they worked on were damaged by rework and carelessness often beyond repair. They applied clear polyurethane right over the smudges of compound and paint, making them permanent.

    The quality of work was amateurish at best. The walls had multiple unrepaired or very poorly repaired spots. After we'd point them out, they would try to fix them, with varying level of success. Sometimes it took 4 attempts and it still was not right. As I later found out from one of the employees, Dido trains his people to cut corners and do things fast. They paint first and then see if it looks ���good enough���. Having to point out problems is exhausting, and them redoing things of course takes time and money. As soon as they started losing money on the project, all the interest in doing it right, or even completing the job, went out the window.

    All along Dido was absent from the work site. He would pop in for a second to see the progress. At some point he left for Congo, where he apparently has other businesses that he runs in that country. The job was never completed. I was finally forced to hire other people to do the garage, basement and the hallway that were never touched by Etinde Painting, and to correct and finish the rest of the house. The total sum paid by me out of pocket to clean up the mess that Etinde left behind was over $7,000. When I confronted him asking to cover some or all of the losses, the answer I got was: ���I'm not paying you a dime���. Of course I didn't see a dime to cover the damage to my house either.

    I think Etinde Painting is a predatory business, taking advantage of consumers by using false statements, empty promises, or blatant lies. Dido bids below what he can do the job for (later admitting he did so because he knew he wouldn't get the job otherwise). Then he jacks up the price, extends the time-line and compromises on quality. Etinde Painting is NOT a registered Home Improvement Contractor, which violates Mass GL 142A, since they advertise and perform multiple types of work (carpentry, floor refinishing, wall repair, exterior painting), not just interior painting, which is exempt from the registration requirement (but still there are plenty of painters who are registered). It is a good idea to hire only registered HIC businesses, because in case you run into issues, there are means of dealing with them and holding them accountable. There is a complaint system, an arbitration process conducted by a qualified person, pool of money that will cover whatever the business owes you etc.

    Not getting involved with unreliable, shady companies like Etinde Paining is, of course, the best way to avoid problems. You don't want to find yourself in a situation I was in ��� paying $7,000 out of pocket to fix/finish a job that was over 90% paid for once already, and having to live with all the damage they left behind. STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

    What an great company to work with.  From the first conversation we had with Dave to the conclusion of the job it has been a pleasure.   One of Dave's employees Chris worked like the true pro he his to ensure the deck came out even better than I thought it could.  Dave was available at all hours to address any question I had.
    I plan on working with Dave and his team on future projects.

    Masterpiece Finishes
    Gary was absolutely amazing.  When i called, Gary was very busy and booked for several weeks in advance.  I was moving into a home that needs a lot of love, attention and updating in Gary's home town.  I gave him very little notice.  Gary didnt think he could do it....a few minutes later Gary called me back to tell me that he would make it happen!!!!  When could i meet him???  On a side note, I had called 3 other painters from Angie's List, none of which returned my call.  Gary met with me within 48 hours, reviewed all the work that will need to be done over the next year, with the main project to be the 3 bedrooms first.  Gary had the quote to me within 24 hours and the work began 2 days after  that.  He told me 4 days to complete, he was done in 3!!!!  Time enough for us to move in!!!  I will NEVER consider another person or contractor to do all the work that needs to be done on the house.  The work was flawless and beautifully done!!!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!  Thank you Gary!!!!!  Looking forward to getting the foyer done next!!!  :)

    Masterpiece Finishes
    Very prompt response to our initial inquiry. Prompt scheduling at our convenience. Crew arrived on time, ready to work. Crew was respectful of our furnishings, pets and readily asked if they had questions (do we need access to the upstairs or kitchen, for the next several hours while they would be working in those areas).
    Work was completed to our total satisfaction in 1/2 day less than estimate.
    Gary was present at start and finish each day and checked in several times throughout each day, doing painting and cleanup along with his crew.
    We have since hired Gary to power wash the exterior of our house with very satisfactory results.
    We plan to have Gary do more interior and exterior work.

    Amaro and his crew were great. He gave me a written estimate promptly after our first meeting. He and his crew were always professional. I have hired workers in the past and you find nails and cigarette butts and candy wrappers on your property. Not these guys; very professional and neat and efficient. They obviously take pride in the work they do. I felt like I got a new house! My house had tons of cracked and peeling paint - was in really bad shape. The detail work was lovely on my 100 year old cottage. I would not hesitate to recommend A.D. Painting to anyone. It was a very rainy beginning to this summer season and yet Amaro did his best to stay on schedule. I was very pleased. Amaro is a very nice man which made it a pleasure to work with him.

    They did a good job on that. I felt that their price was reasonable, they were prompt, they finished the job in a couple of days, got it as they described they were going to do it, and it has held up to the elements quite well so I was satisfied with it. He gave me a time frame and what they're going to do. He came, he started the job, and finished it, there were no gaps in between from the time he started and he finished it, he has done it in 2 1/2 days.
