The last time our house intown had been painted, Y2K was a recent memory, so we had serious prep work to be done. Curtis, who had painted our next-door neighbor's place a few years back, handled a couple of tricky wood repairs himself. His crew did the rest of the scraping, sanding, caulking and painting. Those guys work like crazy. Like any paint job, you have to watch the details and make sure things are being done to your liking. But we were happy with the job and thought the price was fair. Curtis did the wood repairs for a fraction of what others were quoting. We'd use them again, and may for some interior work we need done.
