"Painted exterior trim on our house and garage, including all shutters and porch swing. This included repairing and painting our wood gutters, reglazing and painting the 101 window panes on the glass enclosure on our porch and staining the porch ceiling.
We hired Coast to Coast Painting and they began back in April. Michael George, the owner, and his crew did an excellent job scraping, sanding and power washing the house before priming and painting. Michael did an excellent job on the glass enclosure on the porch, replacing a couple of broken antique glass panes with antique glass. Our home was built in 1898 and we were concerned that removing the original wood gutters and replacing with aluminum gutters would change the appearance of the house. Michael was the only painter who said we should keep the wood gutters and that they weren't as in bad condition as we thought.
We had also hired another contractor to replace all the cedar shingle siding on the house. Once that was done, Michael would return to touch up the trim and rehang all the shutters.
The siding project did not go smoothly but that's a different review. The siding contractor started 5 weeks later than they had told us and then took 7 weeks.
Michael and his crew did return the week after the siding company finished only to find that the siders had thrown away all the shutter holdbacks. He was able to find some and install them."
