Quality work, easy to work with, would hire again
I had the Dixon Group do exterior carpentry (rot repair, trim replacement) and painting, plus a whole-house pressure wash and deck staining. Overall, I give them an A-.
The quote process was good. Juan was very easy to converse with, upfront and informative, honest and straightforward (no pressure, just tries to understand what the client wants and then give a fair price). He was also easy to reach on his cell phone before and during the job. Dixon Group did not require any money until the job is complete (shows they are not a small-time operator, they have confidence in their work, and they will bring the job to full completion before getting paid).
The quality of work gets an A-. They used top-quality paint, and even upgraded the paint used on the deck rails upon my after-the-quote request. My project took 5 days, and the actual painting was mostly on the last day - this shows how much time was spent on preparation. The only reason hanging the "-" on their A is because there were just a little too many spots of paint spill/splatter here-and-there on the driveway, on the siding, and some white overspray on a black trailer I have parked under my deck. They also missed several spots of rot on the trim that were only discovered as I walked the house with Juan on the next-to-last day of work. Nevertheless, all things considered they were very good and I would recommend and hire them again.
