To Whom it May Concern,
This letter is to recommend the services of Vic’s Painting and Reconstruction. Our project consisted of 24 condominium units with carports. We got bids from 7 companies. When I met Vic Hein to show him our units, he was interested in any SPECS we might have. As we had not created SPECS, he recommended we contact A&E Paints (Austin Moore) to get a set of specs drawn. We did that and it proved to be very helpful in comparing bids. As we looked at our bids, Vic was the second lowest bidder but one of the reasons we chose Vic’s Painting is that their company uses electrostatic painting for railing s and our railings looked horrible. Others just paint railings, but the electrostatic method results in a powder-coated look, as they would be from the factory.
We also used A&E Paints to give us guidance on colors. We wanted a neutral color, but we found there are hundreds of neutral colors. A&E brought in their color expert and was able to quickly point out a couple of palettes that would go well with our roof and trim.
The job is now complete and we are pleased. The quality of the work is excellent and our new railings look great. In addition, we have all our entrance doors stripped, as a previous contractor had not used a primer. Although this was an unexpected up-charge that we or Vic didn’t expect, Vic was very fair in the charge incurred and the upside is that all our doors look like new.
In summary, we think Vic’s Painting did an excellent job and I would recommend them.
