I have used Original Richard for many years for various repairs and painting on the multi unit rental property I own. They are always reliable, fairly priced, and the work is done promptly and professionally. Recently I had a water pipe leak which required removing and replacing damaged drywall and refinishing the wall to match existing finishes ( painting). Original Richard is a family run busine...

I have a 70-year old house with original plumbing. It was time to start fresh. Richard and his crew did a great job and were timely and efficient. There were no problems when inspection time came and everything passed the first time.

Some imperfections in the ceiling orange peel (not water damage) needed to be fixed especially after I tried to fix it myself. Steve came by after the appointment was set and skimmed the entire ceiling and reapplied the orange peel. Everything came out looking great. After I saw the quality of work done I contracted to have the company do some painting especially after Steve said there painters we...

Amazing job by Riccardo with Original Richard. With his many years of experience, he did the job incredibly fast and so neatly plus he was just a nice guy. He clearly takes pride in his work and even touched up a little bit of scuffing over the door frame (even though that wasn't technically part of the job) to make the room look brand new. We love how much lighter the room feels since he complete...

Richard and his staff are extremely professional and helpful throughout the whole process of scraping our ceiling. They were prompt and responded to phone calls as well as worked with my tight schedule. The crew came in and did a detailed job without leaving a huge mess behind.

It went great. Steve from Original Richard was helpful and very attentive to our needs and sensitive timing issues. The workers did a nice job, working hard all day to complete the job in a prompt manner so that we could complete our widow installation. Jacky was also wonderful in responding to our needs. Thank you! Suzanne

I highly recommend to hire "Original Richard," because after much search, I finally found a good contractor to fix my old stucco at a reasonable rate. "Steven" whose the estimator and son of the Contractor was cooperative and with ease, I knew that I would be pleased. "Donna" too whom I met to give my deposit was so nice and accommodating. I felt that "Greg" who did the repair has done more than I...

Worked with Steven from start to finish and everything went well. Compromised with my needs and a pleasure to deal with. They completed the entire house, including ceilings, for a 1200 sqft home in one week. They did need to take one day off because of an emergency but Steven let me know the day before and they still completed in the timeframe we discussed. Very good work and friendly workers. I w...
