Sheldon & Sons did a good job, and I was impressed with the workmen. They promptly did the job and finished it without any problems. They were doing interior painting for me. I didn't have to call them back about anything. They were excellent.
Sheldon & Sons did some interior painting for me, and everything was great—no complaints. The guys were extremely nice. It was a very difficult job to do because it involved wallpaper and taking care of a room that had previously had wallpaper. They did a really nice job with it. I thought it was great. They did exterior work for me probably six or eight years ago, and they did great on that, too. I'd give them an excellent grade.
I liked their professionalism and courtesy. They're just a great bunch of guys. They were doing the interior of our home—walls and ceilings—and it was perfect. I'd grade them as an A.
They were very much on time, and they were very clean. The job was done very well. They painted my living room, dining room, kitchen, and hallway. They did exactly what they said they were going to do, and I was very pleased with that. I'd say they were excellent—they get an A.
I think they painted my railings, and it was OK. They were pretty nice. I had come home that evening, and I think the next day, I touched it, and it seemed like it wasn't dry. When I called, they said it was the time of year when it takes longer to dry. It was in the wintertime, but it turned out OK. I'd give them an A.
Sheldon & Sons was awesome. They were just good all around. It was all exterior painting. I'd worked with them before, and I've never had to call them back for anything. I would give them an A.

They did exterior painting in my house. Everybody was very friendly and professional. They did the work they said they were going to do, and they showed up on time. I really don't have any dislikes. I chose them because they offered a great warranty. They offered an eight-year warranty on their workmanship for the painting work they did. Between that and their reputation in the area, I went with them. I'd give them an A+.
Sheldon & Sons is just a good company, overall. A lot of people have referred them, and we've used them a lot in the past. They've always been really friendly and knowledgeable. They did some interior painting for us. I think it was one room. I never had to call them back—they were great the first time. I'd give them an A+.
