Mike cancelled our initial meeting for another more important project. He was always talking about how busy he was and made it seem like my business was not that significant. I thought maybe he was just stressed out. He told me he could start after Labor Day and when I called him to give him the work only two days after our meeting he told me he was too busy and that he wouldn't be available for another month. Very unprofessional and rude. Not even an apology.

Mike was very thorough in his help with my design, as well as the actual work itself. He exceeded every expectation and was extremely clean with his finished product. I would highly recommend him.

I was more than satisfied with my project. Mike is very talented and takes a lot of pride in his work. He is very sincerce and took his time to make sure that I was satisfied throughout the process. I received a great value and will definately refer anyone who wants quality custom painting to Havoc.

Mike is an artist. Hence, I provided a few ideas and gave him creative freedom. I was traveling while the work was being done, but Mike gave me regular updates on progress. The result exceed my expectations, which is no easy feat. I would recommend HAVOC Paint & Design to anyone who demands premium quality and service.

From start to finish Mike did an amazing job. I have a condo in midtown and i wanted more than the whole thing painted. I wanted style and character that fit me and my space. Mike is more than a painter he's an artist. He guided me thru color schemes and patterns and created the perfect scene. I'm very happy with the results and I've had nothing but rave reviews on it. He really goes the extra mile. anyone can paint.. but Mike's artistic eye and attention for detail are certainly worth his price. Highly recommended without any reservation.

It is difficult to find a painter with the right blend of professionalism & creativity who is also trustworthy and has an incredible work ethic....look no further than HAVOC. An incredible talent, after reviewing Mike's website, I emailed him one evening, he replied immediately and came out the very next day. From my initial contact, I had a complete interior paint job in less than 2 weeks! The style is unique, works with my home AND me. Mike is very intuitive and works hard to ensure the work reflects the owner's personality. The whole process was so professional, so streamlined, it was like a breath of fresh air after dealing with other, immensely inferior contractors.

Very professional and detailed work from Havoc Paint & Design LLC on the consultation and work done to paint the interior of my condominium. Mike listened to my concerns and took great care to ensure that I was informed of each stage of progress of the job. I heartily recommend the services from the quality of the job done, to the detailed, artistic eye of the owner.

CONSULTATION: Mike from Havoc paint and design looked over the space we wanted to paint, colors we had considered and worked with us on the atmosphere we wanted. Mike made suggestions and offered fresh ideas. For one large wall Mike came with multiple concepts for the odd space and made minor changes to suit our taste. SCHEDULE: Mike worked diligently around our difficult scheduling demands. He advised us daily on how the project was coming and what to expect. The entire project was done within the time frame expected. RELIABLE: Mike with Havoc Paint and Design was the most conscientious contractor type we have ever worked with. He stuck to the contract and all the verbal agreements that were not spelled out. DETAIL: Whether the work was performed by Mike or an assistant, Mike stayed on top of the project from start to finish, going over everything until he was satisfied enough to ask for our approval. Even after we were happy with a result he still came back for a follow up consultation and worked on things we didn't even complain about. SUMMARY: Mike really took the time to find the "right match" for us. The design consultation in itself was "worth its weight in gold". Mike was great at communicating, cleaning up behind himself and attention to detail. Now, living within the finished project we can't imagine that we considered others who were nothing more than painters! Havoc Paint and Design brought bold ideas to our home, but not beyond our personalities.

I called 3 contractors and Mike was the only one that actually answered my call. After a brief conversation we scheduled a FREE consultation within that same week. Now that's FAST!! Consultation was amazing! I had no idea what colors or anything... Mike is a true professional and his talent to pick colors and designs are absolutely amazing! I'm so pleased with the work that I will FOR SURE be a repeat customer!

Looks like Mike has done very good work in the past. He was very reliable, worked hard, was completely consumed by getting the job done and has a good eye for color. Unfortunately my job was admittedly very difficult and specific. He changed the design and it completely ruined the look that me and my designer were going for. I offered to pay a little extra to get it done right and he said it would cost his fee, plus double the initial quote. Things got ugly at that point and he made it clear he had no interest in working out an equitable solution to make us both happy. He repeatedly demanded payment after I told him I was not happy with the result. So apparently if you don't like your outcome, you're out of luck with Mike. From his portfolio, it looks like he's good for more simple things but if you have a complicated job to do, keep looking.

NO Clue ;)
Just wanted to put in a few good words for my man, Mike Pollard, from HAVOC Paint & Design LLC. I just recently bought a loft condo in Midtown, Atlanta and wanted to have the place painted before I moved in. Since I'm hoping to live in this place for a long time, I wanted something more than just a common interior paint job. I was interested in faux-finishing some of the walls and Mike was referred to me, word-of-mouth, as a highly regarded paint and design artist. His warm and friendly personality immediately made me feel at ease. I was very impressed by his knowledge of color and design, but he was also open to my own ideas and suggestions. The work he did in my place was absolutely wonderful, far exceeding my own expectations. I could tell from the finished product that he really put a lot of care into making sure that I was satisfied. I gladly and strongly recommend HAVOC since I now have a place that I can truly call "home".

We were moving to a new house which desperately needed design and paint. We looked at several painters, but Havoc stood out of the entire group. Michael was hired to create designs and paint our entire home. Not only did Michael bring superb creativity and design, he brought a sense of personal pride and touch. Michaeal was clean, efficient, kept us informed during the project and remained very flexible throughout. We will hire him again in the future, and we highly recommend him.

Havoc is at it again!! I am a Realtor so when I refer Clients to different contractors/specialist I need reliability, good pricing, strong ethics & excellent communication. Havoc displayed all of the above and, of course, did an excellent job painting a 4BR/2.5BA home in a flash. The job really brightened the place up and should prove very helpful in getting it sold. My Seller was very pleased and complimented me on an excellent referral. You GOTTA love that!
