Ok, Chris,lets stop looking at the cell phone when you are driving,lol.Now that it has dried the color is spot on,like you said it would.This is my house Chris is doing right now.He is doing an amazing job here.He's a fantastic worker.Doesnt take any short cuts,explains everything along the way.If there are 2 ways to do something and I tell him its ok to take the "easier" way he will take the harder way because it looks better.He takes much pride in his work and I havent seen him not working when he is here.Doesnt take breaks at all and puts in a full day.He isnt close to me at all,at least an hour and a half or more each way.If you have a project,I highly recommend Chris,he will be my go to guy for any future projects,I've already got a few lined up for him.
Thanks all the paint (except primer) is Sherwin-Williams Emerald exterior. The main body is satin, foundation flat and trim semi-gloss (urethane enamel). Concrete was already painted and in decent shape so was able to paint right over it otherwise would have used a concrete primer first.
Dont even go there.We had that fight before Chris started.She wanted a dark gray with a light gray trim.I really didnt care about the color, but I drew that line at making it look like something out of the Addams family.
Hopefully be finished today.Chris does great work,he breaks his ass and doesnt settle for less than perfect,takes extreme pride in his work.Throughout this project he would point out something he wasnt happy with,I'd say "its fine,dont sweat it".Every time, he'd say nope,not good enough and change it.I think I said it before,but if you need something fixed,painted,built,Chris is the man.
Thanks for kind words! Be there shortly lol. BTW @stokes is a great guy it's been a fun project and my pleasure to bring his home Improvement vision to reality. Appreciate the opportunity and happy to help!
I’ve been there and done that on landscaping projects. It’s a bitch when the husband handles the entire project and bids then the wife comes out and says I’m that’s not what we talked about.
I walked off a job when that happened once. I talked with the wife and the had an I level spot in the backyard. I said it rototill and rake out the high spot then spread 4 yards of soil to level out a few low spots. I got there for the job and the husband came out and said your rototilling the entire yard right? I said hell no not for that price. I quoted $400 for labor. Back yard was 250’ long by 40’ wide. I said what are you crazy and left. It was completely clear I was tilling the high spot. Written quotes have saved my ass a few times.
Well.its finished.Chris worked his ass off on this job.He was absolutely determined to finish this today,and he did.Worked an hour in the dark,lol.Cant say enough good things about this guy.He will be the first call I make with any future projects,and I already have a few lined up for him.Thanks, Chris.
