“They are really good, they do a good job, they are easy to work with, and they are good people.”

“We enjoyed the communication, the quality of the job, and the worker's consideration.”

“My expectations were set properly and everything worked out well.”

“They are generally very good, I've used them multiple times and will probably use them again.”

“Smart Coats was excellent. I highly recommend them. They were wonderful.”

“They were really professional, they showed up on time, and they did what they said they were going to do. Overall, it was a really good experience. I told them if they needed a reference, I'd be happy to do that. I'd absolutely recommend them highly.”

“They were really nice guys. They were very professional and did neat work—A+.”

“Smart Coats was there when they said they were going to be there. They did their work quickly and cleanly. They did a great job. I would give them an A.”

“They were quick, they finished on time, and they did a good job. I would definitely say Smart Coats was an A.”

“They cleaned up really nicely at the end of each day. There were a few spots, and they came back to do some touch ups. They were very friendly about it and did a great job. They're A+, I'd say. I would definitely recommend them.”

“Communication was really good. If you had any problems, the person would immediately rectify it. They're not very responsive to emails or phone calls, but this group was very good. They would just fix it when we were pointing it out. They never exceeded the cost they estimated, so that was also very good. Overall, the quality of work was very good. The only problem we had was that he gave us an estimate to finish the work in ten days, but it actually took like four and a half weeks, so that was the only drawback. Other than that, I think the quality of work was very good; I would say they're an A+.”

“They were very efficient and finished the work on time.”

“I have no complaints.”

“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.”

“I had no problems at all. It was good work. I had the trim, the stairs, and the front and back porch painted, and everything was done properly. It was an excellent job.”

“Ed was great, and his crew was great. They were very responsive—that and their timeliness were my favorite things about them. They painted a portion of the exterior of my house, and it was A+ work.”

“Smart Coats, Inc., was recommended to us by our insurance broker and did some work for us not too long ago. They did the job like they said they would. In terms of price and quality, it was all as expected, and they're really nice people to work with. They did a little bit more than painting—they repaired some of the damage on the house—and they were very quick to come out and get it taken care of. They earned an A+ from me.”

“I liked that the manager always kept me up to date. He always sent me an email the day prior, and if there was a change of plans, he would always keep me posted. That is quite rare for home services like this, so I appreciated that. The painters did a pretty good job. They're pretty fast. It took them a total of a week to get the whole outside of the house done; they had to stop because it was raining. I would say they're an eight out of ten.”

“After Smart Coats, Inc., did work for a neighbor who was happy with them, I chose them to do my exterior staining and painting. It was the floor, the trim, and the body of the house. They did good work and had good communication. I liked their neatness. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They painted the entire exterior of my home for me. At the end of the day, they were just clean—it was a nice, clean bunch of guys. Even though it was hot, they still worked hard and did their job. They kept me abreast of what was going on and what they were doing. I'd say they're an A-level service. I'd recommend them, and I would have them again.”

“Smart Coats, Inc. did a good job—there's nothing they could improve on. They did lots of painting for me, and they did very good. They were quick and efficient, and the workers were great. They were referred to me. I would rate them as an A- overall.”
