    Thank you for sending such hard working, responsible and meticulous men to do the painting in our house. The crew worked hard and well as a team to complete all of the assigned tasks. Eric's presence was also helpful in making sure we had the right colors, checking on progress and communicating between all involved. We especially appreciated their prompt arrivals, attention to details, clean-up, and consideration of our needs, which included putting up with our big, friendly and nosy lab.
