I highly recommend them. They came in, they did the job in the time they said they were going to do the job, everything went well, and everything came out nice. They brushed and sprayed some paint on our Victorian house, and they replaced all the rotten wood. They did the whole house—I think it took four weeks. I didn't have any bad experiences with them whatsoever. Ed came, they estimated the job, we sat down, we talked about how I wanted it done, and they gave me a proposal. I gave them a down payment, and then I gave them another one a couple of weeks in. When they were done, I gave them the final payment. It was excellent.
We actually are still painting my house. I had them do it in two parts. Last year, they did the carpentry and painted one side, and this year they're going to power wash the rest and paint the other three sides. First of all, I liked that they were willing to do it in two pieces. That was nice. Then, when I found something wrong with the carpentry, they repaired it instantly, no questions asked. They just did it. They were also very thorough in their painting quote, and I just think they did an excellent job. I'd say they deserve an A. That's a good mark.
The team was great, and the work was great. I talked to quite a few of them. They were very conscientious, clean, and easy to deal with, and I liked their attention to detail. If something was missing, they would go back for it, and they never complained if there were any questions. It's a 5,000-square-foot house, so they did the exterior trim and also the mahogany front doors. They cleaned it up and stained it. They also painted the kitchen's walls and ceiling. We worked back and forth on pricing. Somehow, I had a very positive first impression when I talked to them. We had other guys come in, but Smart Coats, Inc., was very professional when I first met them. They also used good references. I had conditions initially, such as, 'If you're late, the deal is off.' They agreed and said, 'You're not going to have a problem, and you're not going to regret it.' I'd call them A-grade.
Smart Coats was great. They were wonderful and terrific in every way, and the quality of the work was excellent. The communication was very good; the guy was very responsive. They did all the outside woodwork and trim on my condominium, which involved replacing a lot of wood and painting everything. I have no complaints. They did an A+ job.
Smart Coats did a phenomenal job for us—A++.
They painted six rooms, and it still looks fantastic. They did an excellent job. Overall, it was an A+ experience.
Smart Coats did my complete exterior with three colors of paint. The gentleman was very personable and very well versed, and the crew was very good. They did an excellent job, and I have never had any trouble with the paint. I would give them an A+ rating.
Smart Coats, Inc., painted half of the exterior of my house. I have stain on the top and clapboards on the bottom. I thought it was a neat job; they cleaned up after themselves. They did excellent work. I went with them again because they had done some work for me prior to this, and I was happy with it. They deserve an A+.
A good friend of mine recommended them. They did two jobs for me. They painted the outside of my house, and they painted a deck. Plus, they came and fixed the winter storm damage that had leaked into my family room. I liked that they had a person who came and talked to me immediately when I called them. They promised me that there would always be an inspector or supervisor on the job each day. I like what I see, so I'd definitely give them an A+. I'm going to hire them again to do some work for me later on this summer.
They were excellent. They did a lot of work in a courteous manner. It was interior painting and stripping of wallpaper in several rooms, and it took four days. It looked good when they were finished. I'd give the work an A grade.
