Paint Etc.

Posted on: 10/20/2013

Our New Go-To Painting Professionals

My wife and I are very pleased with work performed in our dining, living, and powder rooms. For two rooms, they had to remove wallpaper and repair walls. The biggest concern involved our dining room wallpaper. It was 27 years old and we had no idea how it would come off the walls. The crew was able to remove the wall paper in both rooms and repair the walls (via skimming). My wife is very picky and admittedly, provided additional feedback after the first go around by the crew. I'm sure most contractors would find her attention to detail annoying, but the crew was very responsive to my wife's input and put additional time into skimming the walls. As a result, the dining room walls are in better condition than many of our walls that were never wallpapered. The crew worked hard the entire day and was very focused on the job. My wife felt very comfortable with them in the house and sees Paint Etc. as our go to company for painting and drywall work.

Mr. Transmission of Marietta

Posted on: 5/31/2012

Excellent Follow-up Service

I had the transmission in my 03 Town & Country rebuilt a year ago and it ran like new - however, about a month ago, my engine light came on and via a check at an auto parts store, found several codes pointing to the transmission - it was puzzling because otherwise, the rebuilt transmission was still running smooth - took it back to Mr. T and to the point, they found a grounding problem that was affecting the control system, which they fixed - meanwhile, during the troubleshooting, they made some additional adjustments to the transmission itself - even though the grounding issue technically fell outside boundary of the rebuilt itself, all of the work was performed under warrenty - I will say that I was traveling and was able to leave the car for a week plus a day or two (which also saved me some parking fees) - I've driven the car about 400 miles since the repair with no engine light showing up and the transmission continues to shift good as new - for a prior minivan, I had the transmission rebuilt by shop a couple miles down the road - in all fairness to them, their rebuilt worked, but it did not operate and shift like new - it was for that reason that I tried Mr. T - I'll continue to go back to Mr. T as long as they keep doing good work and provide excellent service

Excellent Experience with Sash Replacements

Overall, our experience with RB was excellent. We had sash replacements installed for 27 windows, including two large fixed windows for bays. We had the outside brick and nose molding replaced on all windows along with sills for seven of the windows. We also had some other carpentry work done. Two crews led by Randy and Roger did a great job. They were very friendly along with being very considerate of our house (did not track mud and dirt in). If we asked about something, they immediately addressed it or made sure we were happy (only needed to do this a few times). Based on other blogs from folks who talked about horror stories involving window replacements, Randy and Roger provided the opposite experience. Behind the scenes, Tony worked with us regarding scheduling and Chris K. was very patient with us as we explored many different windows for quotes. Lastly, their bid was very competitive. To be frank, I originally didn't even thing about contacting Robert Bowden until a family member happen to put a bug in my ear about his excellent experience with them for other work. I had nothing to lose by talking to them. I would recommend that you at least talk to them about any of your home improvements.

Highland Park Painting

Posted on: 2/12/2010

Excellent Prepping and Painting

My experience with Highland Park painting was excellent. The bid was straightforward and well documented - no pressure. When I decided to go with them, scheduling was not problem. I was coordinating the painting with the installation of new windows and they worked with me. Lastly, they spent much of the first day prepping the house that included caulking and sealing every crack one could find. The painting was done neatly and with excellent detail. Toward the end of the job, bad weather was suddenly predicted and in response, they had a second crew on site that finished the job one day earlier a head of the rain.

Finally Killed off Ants

We had been with another pest control service for many years who could never fully eliminate ants inside our home. During the summer 2009, the ant situation started getting worse. We called Ed Dalton who came and fully assessed our situation. After indicating that it may take about a month because of the severity of the situation, we gave Dalton a try. Bottomline, the treatment approach used by Dalton killed off the ants. We haven't seen one since early Fall 09. We're staying with Dalton to handle all of our bug control needs. In particular, the mosquito service Ed offers during the summer is excellent.
