BeautiFaux Finishes and Design

Posted on: 6/8/2011

Disappointed

We were looking for a simple, let's say "patch job" on our kitchen cabinets to remove some scratches and give them a re-fresh. Rather than a complete re-face, we decided to go with a very light sanding, re-stain and top coat. While our expectations were not to see a complete transformation, it certainly wasn't to see brush strokes and have the cabinet doors not match the base. How did this happen...I guess we tried to save some dough, but the cost was still in excess of $3300. When the "brushed" cabinets had to be re-done, they were taken to his shop and sprayed. When they came back, the varnish didn't match and looks "milky" compared to the base of the cabinets. Further, I had to call my painter to re-paint the kitchen walls as the "touch-up" paint used didn't match...$700 more dollars. Finally, we spent a day cleaning the stainless cabinets and granite where there were remnants of rushed work...why the "above average" on service? Abraham was timely and very pleasant to deal with. Unfortunately, I am now having to trust someone else to fix what could have been avoided.

Whitwell Landscaping

Posted on: 6/7/2011

Beyond My Expectations

We had a drainage issue beside our home from downspouts not properly routed and the grade not properly maintained. After receiving several quotes, I called Joe Whitwell and asked him to give us an evaluation and proposal. Not only was his price very reasonable, his design and ideas were EXACTLY what my wife and I envisioned for our yard and, frankly, went beyond our expectations. The end result is beautiful and his attention to detail led us to fire our current lawn maintenance firm and hire Joe for all our lawn and design needs. Expect Joe to be on site inspecting and working towards your exact specifications. If you have ever been in a service driven industry, you will instantly appreciate his methodologies and customer centric approach.
