“Once again Homeworks took their experience and did an extensive job on our exterior completely transforming the appearance. The crews attention to detail, respect for property (removing screens etc) and when done replaced everything. They kept us informed of their progress and ensuring the correct color paint was where it was supposed to be. As always Homeworks did a phenomenal job! Homeworks has been painting our house from the moment we moved in (2016) and following renovations they have come in and made the interior look exquisite each time. Well never use anyone else.”

“I would not recommend this company. The crew leader showed up and started by complaining about the scope of the job. He tried painting over several pieces of rotted wood that was supposed to be changed out/replaced as per the scope of work. We had to check behind them each day to ensure the work was done correctly, often catching them paint over the rot. They left our yard and deck a mess. Finally, they would not show up if it was cloudy and they thought there was the slightest chance of rain. Our neighbors across the street had their house painted by a different company and the were done in half the time (and they did a great job).”

“I hired Home Works to, among other things, fix a crack in the molding on my Paladian window in the living room. Within a few weeks the crack was back and even bigger. I was unable to proceed with my plans for a party because of this embarrassing situation that everyone would notice. I still have the crack but no budget this year to have it redone by someone else.”

Work was done on time and crew was very professional and took care to take care of our property and clean up was awesome! With the exception of awesome outdoor painting job we would have never known they were there! Thank you!”

“We have used Home Works Painting for several projects, both interior and exterior, since 2014. I would not have any other painting company paint the inside of my house period. The most recent interior job was 2019. For interior work, I would give them all 5 stars. They are careful with great attention to detail and clean-up. They are also quite good at whatever carpentry repairs (baseboards, etc.) they encounter. We have a cathedral ceiling with a large peaked area in the center of the living room ceiling. Every townhome on this street (including ours) experienced settlement cracks in that peaked area. It made no difference how many different ways our neighbors patched or taped that area to do away with the cracks across the ceiling, nothing worked for 14 years! In our last Home Works interior paint project, they opened up the peak, screwed strips of wood on either side of the area, drywalled and painted. We are the envy of the neighborhood as those unsightly as those cracks have never returned to our ceiling! We have also used Home Works for two exterior projects, both of which were for sealing and staining our small back deck. In 2020, when we knew we were going to replace all the top boards and stairs the next year, we asked them to replace several boards that had small areas of rot in them, and then to seal and stain the entire deck and stairs to hold over the winter months. They did a fine job. In the spring of 2021, we rebuilt the deck and stairs and again worked with Home Works to stain and seal the new wood. We'd selected a semi-transparent stain made for decks by Sherwyn Williams. After the wood had cured, power washed and thoroughly dried, the staining/sealing began in May. The quality of the first coat of stain was night and day from what we'd experienced in the past. Brush strokes were going in all directions, areas of the wood had been overlooked and paint stains were left on our white vinyl railings. It was really quite bad. To their credit, the owner, Mike Katounas, came to our home in a very timely manner, apologized and vowed to make all things right. And they DID make all things right in the end -- but it took 4 months to finally accomplish it! There was the weather -- stain cannot be applied at 90 degrees and over or it will not adhere and there was certainly a lot of 90+ degree days. Stain also cannot be applied on wet decks, and there was an abundance of rain during and in between the 90 degree days. Mike Katounas said the best way forward was to power sand all existing stain off the deck and stairs, and he did that at his expense. What couldn't be power sanded would be hand sanded. Sadly, remnants of stain were left behind, and more sanding was required. Then the deck and stairs had to be power washed again, also at his expense. We were now into September. By the 2nd week of September, it was finally finished. Phew! Both Home Works and we were so glad it was! My point is this: mistakes were made, mistakes were corrected, lessons were learned, the company was true to its word to make things right. Was it easy? No, not for either of us. And there's no controlling the weather. But we are very happy with the end result. We need to restain our screened porch next year and Home Works will get the first shot at the job.”

“Disappointed in the overall quality of the work performed. The original goal of the project - to repair ceiling tape, settlement cracks and nail pops - seemed to have gotten lost in the painting project, which was a secondary goal. It was up to me to independently point out any and all defects. I spent hours cleaning paint from my carpet afterwards. For the money I paid, I should have been thrilled with the results; I was not. However, they did meet their schedule, they repaired all areas I flagged and did a great job on my high, slanted ceilings.”

“Subcontractors were used. They hadn't been informed of the high foyer ceiling and so didn't bring scaffolding. It should have have been 3 full days of work but the crew left abruptly after 2 days. The ceiling looked awful as did the cutting in. Homeworks was good about sending out a different crew to fix the problems but I still spent several days touching up mistakes. Unfortunately, the first crew ran caulk along all the door casings to cover up their sloppy work. It looks awful but is too much trouble to rip the caulk out and redo everything.”

“We are extremely pleased with the work done on the exterior of our house. Homeworks replaced numerous pieces of rotted trim with new PVC boards that line up perfectly with the rest of our trim. We've had our house painted by numerous painters over the years and Homeworks is by far the best painter we've ever hired. They were very professional and extremely careful when painting our home and left the job site clean every day.”

“They completed the wood rot repair and painting of my outdoor trim ahead of schedule. However, I wasn't really sure that they were done because I was not given status updates. I only knew that they were done when they knocked on my door at one point and left me an empty paint can for color matching. I also had them power wash some mildew off of my vinyl siding which they contracted out. Whatever cleaner the contractor used killed a good portion of one of my bushes in the front of my house and the bush has never recovered. The trim painting still looks nice one year later, so good job.”

“The job was rushed with onsite painters shorthanded (due to illness), yet the crew still tried to complete job a day early per instructions from offsite manager. This led to sloppy work (e.g., paint drops on carpet), spilled cup of coffee that permanently stained white carpet, and unable to complete tasks on the contract (e.g., caulk bathtub). The lead painter had to return after the job to remedy the deficiencies.”
