John painted many rooms in our home last year. Excellent job. Still looks great. Thoughtful, courteous young man in dealing with us. Not only was his painting ability top tier but each evening he cleaned up behind himself which made this two week job easier for us to live with each day. I could go on and on but just call him for any painting you need done. You will be happy with the result.

John was extremely professional throughout the job. He is very knowledgeable about what he does and it shows. We have a room with a vaulted ceiling with a lot of angles and he was able to get it all repaired and painted within a short amount of time. Our walls look better than I ever thought they would considering all the nails and bumps from removing a chair rail and old security system boxes. He also (very kindly) gave us some advice on how to do some other paint jobs that we want to tackle ourselves. I can't recommend him highly enough; we will definitely hire him again if we have future work and will also recommend him to friends and family. Thanks John!

He was very non-obtrusive in the house, has a very professional demeanor, and he was the greatest.

Description of Work
We have a 107 year old home with lots of wall paper and plaster problems. He is so good at what he does that he made these old walls look like a brand new house. He was extremely efficient, professional and a pleasure to have in our home for those four days.

From beginning to end nothing but professional. Free in home estimate, and totally amazing workmanship. Very reasonable price. He also puts you in contact with a color consultant, which was awesome! Can't wait to have him come back and do the rest of the house.

John was professional, responsive and above all else very skilled at his trade. We got off to a slow start at first, but John was upfront about his backlog of exterior work and needed to take advantage of good weather days in order to accomodate previous commitments. He had hoped to have a crew come in and be done with our rather large job in just a couple days, but instead of rescheduling and delaying further, he came in and did the entire job himself!! He was quick, efficient and did what it took to get it done! He completed the project in just over 4 days!! He kept the work space clean and tidy. Which I thought was impressive considering we were painting the entire main level of our house. He was also very considerate of the fact that we have two small children. Even taking the time to entertain my 2 year olds barrage of questions! As for cost, given the amount of work done, the high quality materials he used and efficiency with which the job was completed, I'd say it was a bargain!! We will definitely use John and Absolute Painting for ALL of our future painting projects!

Description of Work
They thoroughly prepped the walls and painted: family room, dinette, kitchen, front entry, stairwell and upper hall. In our sunroom they repaired stress cracks and water stains on the walls and ceiling, also painted walls and ceiling. Finally our powder bath had floor to ceiling painted stripes and they did a complete skim coat of the bathroom and painted it.

The work was excellent and now over one year later everything still looks as fresh as the day it was completed. Service took 2-1/2 days with minimal interruption to my schedule. I plan to hire again for additional areas inside the house. The service was performed on time and the work was of the highest quality.

John was extremely easy to deal with. Since this season is busy with exterior painting, and we were willing to be flexible with scheduling, he was able to come out on a rainy day and perform the work much sooner than otherwise would be possible. He showed up on time ready to go, was careful to protect all of our walls, floors, and furniture, and completed the work efficiently. He also got along well with our dog. We ended up paying him a little bit more than he'd asked for because we added some additional scope of work. Even though he said he'd still do it for the quoted price, we were impressed enough that we wanted to pay for the extra work. We'll definitely be using John/Absolute for our painting needs in the future!

Absolute Painting just completed painting the exterior of our house and they did a fabulous job! We had received 5 quotes and Absolute Painting was the lowest by 20%. Don?t let that fool you, the quality of the work was awesome. John Scott, the owner, did all of the work. The house was power washed, scraped, primed and then two coats of Hirshfield?s paint were applied. John applied an area of paint by the sprayer and then rolled and/or brushed the paint into the wood. It turned out that he had to do a lot more scrapping (and thus priming) then he bid but he did not raise the price. When completed, the job site was professionally cleaned up and none of our landscaping was affected. We will definitely use Absolute Painting for any future painting needs at our house!

Attention to quality of color and wall prep was good. The contractor used a subcontractor to complete the work as the contractor was "busy" on another project. Painting project was rushed and many areas of the the walls still have nail pops and seams that show. I haired a professional painter to have professionally looking painted walls, but that was not the case. They did come back to address some of the issues, but the owner was irritated to have to come back and shrugged off concerns about the quality of the work.

Description of Work
Painting of family room, living room, entry way, up the stairs and upper hallway. Areas to be painted had been previously wallpapered, which had been removed by homeowner prior to start of project. Walls need patching, nail pops and seam pops dealt with.

I’m very sorry to hear that I have a customer who is not completely satisfied with the work that was completed. Every reasonable attempt on each project is made to ensure satisfaction, and unfortunately that doesn’t seem to be the case for this particular customer. We do not hire subcontractors on a regular basis and did not hire a subcontractor for this particular job. The painter on this job had been working for my company for more than two years at the time of this project. If a subcontractor is hired for a portion of the project (typically this would be for extremely large projects or those that require extensive carpentry work), the owner is ALWAYS notified prior to their hire and given the opportunity to object if they choose to. Hiring subcontractors is not always a bad thing in the trades; it is much less expensive for me (and, in turn, our customers) to hire a skilled carpenter that I know, trust, and have a working relationship with, on an as-needed-basis than to keep one employed full time for the occasions that my customers may need someone with expertise beyond the general field of painting. Our company returned to this customer’s home twice to address issues that she had with the work. Problems with nail-pops and drywall seams were addressed at great length, both in writing through the proposal/quote and in conversation at the time of the initial consultation. It was made very clear to her before we were hired that because the drywall was installed using nails instead of screws that there was no written or implied guarantee that they would not reoccur OR be able to be corrected perfectly at all. Every nail in the wall was loose or bulging out and the drywall seams protruded out from the walls drastically. The solution that I offered to correct this problem, which was to remove EVERY nail from the drywall and replace it with a screw was declined by the customer. A less expensive option was elected which was to make our best attempt at hiding them using drywall mud, going into the project knowing that the walls would look good, but be far from perfect. The agreement was made to proceed, backed by the expectations of results being fully explained in the proposal. At the close of the job, our customer was not happy that the walls were not perfect. We made two more trips back to the home to attempt to correct the issues. Still she was not satisfied with the results. My source of frustration was that I took great care to explain what the results would be, which were exactly what they turned out to be, prior to starting the job. She acknowledged that she very clearly understood the expectations, opted for the less expensive route, and then got upset that the results were what I told her they would be. Frustration got the best of me, and I’m sure that was obvious, but in this case, I don’t know what else could have been expected. However frustrated, the conversation remained respectful and in no way abrasive. I take pride in not only the quality of workmanship that I provide, but the level of customer service that is given from initial phone call to completion of a project. Therefore, I am disappointed at the negative remarks made, but also feel that I couldn’t have explained what our results would be any more clearly. I would encourage all AL members to carefully review every proposal they get from providers and ask for any gray areas to be cleared up in writing. I hope this helps explain my position and want to again state that my satisfaction comes from knowing that my customers are more than just satisified.

None of the work has been done yet. I have canceled the exterior painting project because the contractor really discouraged me from doing that. The owner of Absolute Painting & Finishing was very upfront when he said he hadn't done such work before and that he would have to research and see what kind of adhesives he would have to use. He was very prompt in his response to my enquiry. I think I heard from him within 24 to 48 hours. He himself came out to give the bid for the project. He was very personable. He gave me his background and asked me if I wanted any references. He was just wonderful. I had full confidence after talking to him. We have already discussed to do some future projects.

Description of Work
I contacted Absolute Painting & Finishing, LLC to get bids for two separate projects. One was for painting an interior brick wall. The bid for that was $650. The other project was exterior painting of a brick chimney. $250 was the bid for that one.

The guy who came for the quote seemed to be nice and respectable. I didn't use their service because they were markedly higher in price than the other quotes I received. They were little on a slower side and it just seemed like it took longer to connect with them.

John does expert painting work, but more than that he goes above and beyond to make suggestions and do the extra things that sometimes come up along the way (removing ugly wallpaper that I didn't find until the frig was removed, fixing other poorly done painting). The use of a color consultant was a big help to me in this particular project as I was indecisive about paint colors. The fact that John partners with Hirshfields make the process easy.

Description of Work
This was the second time that I hired John. He had painted the upstairs of my home before I moved in and did a great job so I had him back to paint several rooms on the main level - family room, kitchen, dining room, living room and mud room. This time I didn't have a good idea of what colors I wanted to use so he recommended that I work with Belinda, a color consultant at Hirshfields in Lakeville. She was very helpful, patient, and made multiple visits to my home to work out the right colors. The end result is fabulous - I'm very happy with the color choices and they are probably not what I would have selected myself. And once again John completed the work within a week - in spite of additional requests after he had done the initial estimate. As part of this job I had John paint my dated oak book shelves in the family room on either side of the fireplace. They were changed to an off white enamel which made a huge difference in the look and feel of the room. I also had him redo a botched powder room paint job that had just been done by another contractor and had him strip some wallpaper and repaint where a refrigerator had just been removed. John and his partner moved all of my furniture and carefully covered it. They completed rooms quickly so the painting job was the least obtrusive as possible.

John is very professional and pleasant to deal with. His communication is detailed and timely - you know exactly what will be done and how much it will cost. I liked his work so much that I hired him for a second round of interior painting in June 2010. Of all the people I've hired from Angie's List (and there have been many), John is tops! I can't recommend him highly enough.

Description of Work
Based on positive reviews from Angie's List, I hired John to paint the upstairs of a home that I had just purchased - four bedrooms, one bathroom and a hallway. I was extremely pleased with the results. He was able to do the work before I moved in and before I had new carpet installed. John does excellent work and went beyond just painting the walls. He pointed out how dingy and dirty the ceilings were in a couple bedrooms and quoted a very reasonable estimate to respray them. He gave great opinions on my choice of paint colors, but he also works closely with Hirshfields where you can engage a color consultant for a reasonable price. The fresh ceilings and expertly applied paint in new colors made a huge difference in my new home. All of this work was completed within two days. John even labeled the paint cans with the color and room!
