Really, Really Beautiful Paint Job on Bedroom with Vaulted Ceiling
I needed a professional painter to reach that high ceiling
Though I moved here a while ago and I had done most of the painting myself, the master bedroom has that vaulted ceiling. Even on a 6-foot ladder with a pole, I couldn't reach, so I knew it needed to be done professionally. I just couldn't do it. And it needed to be done ... badly.
I happened to go on the internet and I clicked on your website. And I told what I needed and they gave me some names.
I didn't really know how much it would cost because like I said, all my life I've always done my own painting, but now I'm going to be 68, and I just didn't want to climb that ladder. So I decided, "Well, whatever, it needed to be done."
I was going to get more estimates but when the first contractor came, he was so nice and willing to please that I decided to just go with him. And he really did a great job.
I picked the color and he picked out the paint. He took a sample off the wall and got the paint.
It took him a day and a half to paint the room -- ceiling, doors, and walls. And that was even not being here all day.
One important thing that happened: The guy that was with him didn't clean one of the doors before he painted it, but I didn't have to say anything. Mr. Sellers noticed it right away, made him sand it down and redo it. I would recommend him to anybody for that reason because when I saw it, I went, "Oh no." Then when I got home from work the next day, he told me, "I saw a mistake and I fixed it" and I said, " Oh, good!" because that's what I was going to mention to him.
You know what really got me? He paints the molding without tape or anything. He just paints the molding and doesn't make a mistake. That freaked me out. He said it took him 6 months to learn how to do that. I was totally impressed because even with tape I made mistakes. And he's young to know that! He really was a lot younger than I expected but he did a superb job and I would have him back any time.
The cleanup was perfect. Everything looked really, really nice.
He took up part of my old carpeting for me and he even offered when I get the new carpeting, if they damage the woodwork, he will come back and fix it ... which I thought was pretty nice because he doesn't have to do that. So like I said, I was very impressed.
He made sure that everything was done right and the way I wanted it. I would recommend him to anybody. I took a bunch of his cards and gave them to my friends.
My advice to you: If money is an issue, I would get more than one estimate. Money was kind of an issue in my case, but I just decided, I work part time, so I can't wait around for a hundred estimates.
And make sure it's done the way you want it. That's what you gotta do. I mean, if it's not up to your standard, you need to tell them.
