  • BEST EXPERIENCE EVER!!! John Alden, his son and his workers are A M A Z I N G!! We purchased our home six years ago. A really cool Stickley Bungalow, that was built in 1910 - a one story, somewhat 'rambling' (several additions, lots of angles), large home. With a lot of inside work to do, we concentrated our efforts - and our money, on this... leaving the exterior for 'another day'. Well, that day finally arrived and I went hunting on Angies List for a good painter. Instead, I found a GREAT PAINTER!! The exterior of our house was stained brown, actually, many differing shades of brown, as the various areas were no doubt done piecemeal over the years, by the original family who built and owned the home. Along with the solid brown stain, came lots and lots and lots of yellow trim. When I originally contacted John and he came by to check out the job and give me an estimate, I asked him to paint areas that needed it only... so, kind of like 3/4 of the house... sides and trim. As almost half faces away from the street and our side yard, I figured that I'd save some $$ by doing it this way. John gave me a very fair price for this original job, back in August, informing me that I'd be his final exterior customer of the season. He checked back often after this, making sure we were still set for the job and letting me know he planned to begin in late September. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans - sending lots and lots of rain - tough painting weather. John persevered, beginning the job as soon as he could and worked like crazy to get it done! As he was nearing that time, and the portions he had completed looked SO GOOD, he offered to do the whole (John will smile if he reads this), 'kit and kaboodle'... for a very reasonable fee. All I can say is WOW! Our one hundred-eight year old house looks gorgeous... absolutely beautiful! So, to recap: John Alden is a great painter. He goes above and beyond... arriving early, staying late... keeping things tidy... no mess, no drips, just perfect. We are 200% satisfied with John's work, his work ethic and his attention to detail. We wish we'd done this sooner ... but are so happy that I found the BEST PAINTER in Southern Vermont, to do the job up right. To anyone looking for a painter, to do exterior - or interior painting - do yourself a favor and have John take a look. Trust me, you'll be glad that you did! Last - he power-washed the house prior to painting, and included a marble patio and stone steps that are located in the back of our house. Both areas now sparkle! I didn't even know it was possible to get both to look SO GOOD! John did this without being asked to do so, he's just that kind of guy! And, at my request, his son hoisted/set up a pair of storm windows for me, with a smile. Nice people. Really, nice people!

  • Overspray of foam insulation is everywhere, cellulose had to be done twice to meet contract amount, second time back they cracked my entry room ceiling. Came back three times to scrape up overspray, still left residue on walls and floor. Still waiting since Nov. to have job completed. Water heater blanket torn and coated also.

  • The work went quickly and as noted above it all turned out perfect. This house is a family house and I managed the work with Alden Painting remotely. This needed close communication and Mr. Alden regular sent me digital photos of the work and between these and phone calls we were able to make effective decisions and this saved me a couple long drives.

  • John and his team did an excellent job painting the house and detached garage.  The paint was applied thickly and evenly - I expected that I would have to ask him back to touch up some areas but I couldn't find any flaws.  And unlike other painters that I have hired in the past, they kept sharp borders and didn't get stray paint on any lights, switches, doors, etc.  They cleaned up after themselves well enough that you wouldn't have known they were there.  We're very pleased, and it was well worth the price.

  • From the beginning it was difficult to get in touch and maintain contact with provider.  Messages I left were not answered  After several attempts he came to my house and gave me an estimate for the job which seemed reasonable.  He seemed like a pleasant and responsible man and I agreed to go ahead.  We arranged a date and time about a week later and he never showed up and did not return my calls.  Frustrating and a waste of my time.  Based on my experience, I would not use again or recommend.

  • He was right on with his money. He stuck with his word. He told me it would be about a day and half and he was right on with that. He was very clean throughout the whole process even through the clean up. His men were very appropriate. It was a good experience. I recommend him highly. Im very happy with his work.

  • I was very impressed with API. As an Interior Designer I work with a lot of trades. Bill had an incredibly thorough knowledge of the job and possibilities and they were very reasonably priced. He offered alternatives to what other plumbers offered talked to me as if I were not a dumbbell - which so many trades can do.  I look forward to working with them on future projects!

  • Abatem is a rare company, honest, reliable, professional, competent, fair. They come when scheduled and their work is guaranteed. I have always been pleased with my experience and would not hesitate to recommend their services.

  • The work itself was excellent. A bit tardy getting an estimate to us and starting the job. Once the job was started, it was completed much faster than I anticipated. Debris was cleaned up daily and I have yet to find a nail left behind! These guys know what they are doing and our roof looks great.

  • VERY prompt return call and visit to diagnose problem and offer a workable solution. Tim came back 2 days later, squeezing me in on a weekend, before starting on a very large job.  His goal was to get this done ASAP while at the same time doing it safely and affordably as a temporary setup until winter weather is over and wiring can be permanently run underground. We will definitely be having him back for the final work and to take care of some other concerns he pointed out that had been overlooked by others. VERY happy with the job and to know he is there when needed!
