"I wanted to whitewash a 17' tall brown brick fireplace and paint an accent color on the wall surrounding the fireplace. I was very anxious to find the right craftsman and took a lot of bids - more than 6! I hired Paul Marcus - who was not the cheapest by a long shot - for several reasons.
Not only because he seemed to know exactly what he was talking about and what the project would entail, but also because he was patient in answering my questions and explaining how he would do it.
Most importantly, however -- he was the only bidder who discussed in some detail what would be involved in prepping the space and cleaning the brick before the whitewashing could begin. He discussed the type of brick we had ("soft" here, hard there) and how these differences would affect the way the whitewash would be applied and absorbed.
He listened patiently to what I was hoping to accomplish, answered my questions and looked carefully at pictures I had found on the internet that best matched my vision. He and his employee, David, were both impressively professional from start to finish and very careful about my home and furnishings.
When they began the actual whitewash process they made sure I was home and kept adjusting and working at the finish until I was 100% satisfied. The finished product matches my vision exactly and I am absolutely thrilled.
It was worth every penny and I consider it an extremely valuable investment. I really wish I could post pictures because the change is dramatic and the finished product is just beautiful.
Thank you, Home Advisor, for finding me Paul Marcus Painting. You found me what Angies List could not. "
