Sylvester Robinson is very prompt and courteous, and came to my house on time to give me a very detailed estimate of the work I needed to have done. My house was beginning to look shabby because the painted wood was peeling, cracking, and growing mold. I hadn't even noticed that part of the wood siding needed repair - it had begun to rot where it met the porch roof, and he saw this right away. He also noticed that my porch railing was loose, and warned me that a guest could fall off and get hurt. He seemed genuinely invested in doing a good job for me. He assured me that when he was finished, I would feel proud of my house when I drove home at the end of the day, and he was right! The other painter I had contacted for an estimate (similar quote) did not mention the porch railing or rotten siding, and might have simply painted over these problems. Sylvester worked hard, even in this July's searing heat, and is a very positive person, a real pleasure to be around. He did everything on his estimate, and then went beyond the call of duty, and did MORE work than he wrote into the estimate: He sanded the porch floor so well that I could have chosen to stain and seal it rather than repaint! He put a primer coat on the porch floor as a gift to me, even though I told him I would paint the porch floor myself (to save money). He painted the church pew that I keep on the porch, just because he knew it would look better that way. He pressure washed my front steps all the way out to the street. His crew pressure washed my brick patio - I've never seen it look so nice. He even - get this - got out some gold paint and a little brush and carefully repainted my house numbers !!! And at the end of every day, he cleaned up his work, never leaving any kind of mess. I have owned homes since 1978, and have several rental houses, so I have hired plenty of painters, workmen, and handymen in my time. What sets Sylvester Robinson apart is the real pride he takes in his work. He worked on my home as if it was his own. It was important to him that I be happy, and I am. Like he predicted, when I pull up in front of my house at the end of the day, I feel proud of my house! It's the prettiest one on the street now.
