We had just moved into our house and were also new to the area. We found Tom Saint Painting & Remodeling both on Angies' List as well as seeing many of his jobsite signs around town. During initial prep, Tom discovered previous paint was applied without proper preparation (primer) so house needed to be sanded nearly completely. He immediately provided additional workers to complete this task in order to stay on schedule. Additional cost was incurred but he kept it reasonable. His crew also repaired/replaced 9 window sills that had suffered long-term water damage due to improper roof drainage. This was a much more difficult job than it first appeared but his crew was more than up to it. They also replaced numerous trim pieces that had suffered water damage, as well. The new paint job included sanding, 1 prime coat and 2 finish coats on all siding and trim. Tom's crew also completely sanded and stained our deck and railings. Like the house, it had been improperly prepped and stained previously but it now looks nearly new! I wouldn't hesitate to use Tom again in the future and recommend him without reservation. Both my wife and I are very pleased with the result.
