Beware.... This is a thief. The quality of work is extremely poor quality and rushed. Half A55. This guy is nothing but a good salesman, watch out He is good at convincing you with pictures of other people’s work and fake reviews that he made himself or got his family or friends to leave with their accounts. He has no Business bond or Insurance. He ran home and drafted some fake paper and printed it out just to convince me to pay for the job (What a mistake). If he has a bond or insurance now it’s 100% FAKE. He’s just gotten better at showing up prepared. DON’T PAY THIS GUY!!! Valuable Things will be gone from all around your house or inside your house, garage, storage shed and even package deliveries that are delivered while he’s ruining your house. In the end, it’s going to save you money if you just hire a big company with hundreds of references if not thousands that actually have a business front with a GOOD STANDING PUBLIC IMAGE. You might think your getting a bargain with this crook, but when it’s all said and done your going to hate yourself when your house is ruined. This guy is crooked! He does not even have a physical address if you need to find him. Don’t fall for his junky new van with new logos, anybody can go to the dealer and pick one up in payments, immediately. Don’t be fooled by the logos on his car, those are cheap online or even local if you shop around.
Brian is a great guy! He’ll do whatever it takes to make sure your paint is done right. He only uses quality products and is extremely personable AND professional. Go to him for a job done right.

Worst attorneys ever. Ineffective, weak lawyers unable to argue my accident case. Was in a severe accident and only got a meager settlement. Would have gotten triple the amount had I done it myself. I would advise everyone to not seek their counsel. The main attorney Jacob was rude and mean. I was his client and he yelled at me treating me like I was nothing. He got most of my settlement money and didn't even seem to care about my well being. Had I known any better I would have never sought their help. I wish I hadn't ever gone to them. Now there's nothing I can do about it except to live with it. Please do not go to them I'm only saying this so no one gets what happened to me to happen to you.
Inaccurate and inappropriate information display by Teri f - I received a phone call 5 days after procedure, this being the 1st attempt in contacting me from the daughter, while they were receiving piercings, yes on speaker phone stating she was furious with the work, uneven eyebrows of her mother and the small tattoo placed behind her ear. She was rude and criticizing the work performed, I tried to inform her daughter that permanent eyebrows are a process, this is a known fact, I tried telling her that her mother has an over active forehead muscle which made it very difficult to place her brows 100% even the first time, this also was discussed with her mother at our appointment, after several attempts to draw them on for her the mother I advised her to draw them for herself and this design we agreed to along with the small tattoo behind the ear. After hearing from the daughter not my client the mother, with her 1st attempt contacting me I scheduled the mother to come in along with her daughter to have a couple lines areas removed and re-adjust any pigment and discuss there concerns, neither one showed or called for there appointment. Truly sorry for the dissatisfaction of my clients daughter.
A friend of mine got her eyebrows done by Tonni. They are awful. My friend told Tonni she was not happy with them at the time they were done. Despite her protests, she was sent home dissatisfied and was charged $400!!! The gal (a small business owner) that referred my friend was shocked that she had been treated this way and will not be referring any more clients unless Tonni makes it right. When Tonni was contacted, she was rude and condescending. She blamed the uneveness of the brows on my friend, stating she couldn't relax them. Ridiculous.
I called, it was 199 for me to get my little hatchback tinted. They did a 20% tint on it all the way around and the film seems to be of good quality. They offered 35%, 20% and limo tint. I'm sure they could probably do other tint if you just ask. The service was quick, took a few hours and it looks decent. My main point of complaint was when I inspected my car, the exterior was horribly smudged. I keep my car very clean and it was quite disappointing to see such a awful job wiping the windows down. I'm going to give it a few days to let everything set before judging the tint itself but I had to immediately clean off all my windows in order to see out of them. Granted, I'm a bit of a neat freak when it comes to my car's windows but even still I thought that was pretty sloppy.Basically, if you want stuff done quick and possibly same day, I'd say go for it. If you want flawless work, I'd recommend going elsewhere.
I just read the other review on this attorney or at least that's what I read on the door . I had pretty much the same experience with this man . His office manager / assistant never calls back never answers emails , I sent dozens of emails for an update nothing it's been going on now for two years . This is a big rip off and I can't believe this guy is getting away with this BS . I wouldn't recommend him to anyone for anything . People stay clear and don't get sucked in by how nice he is . Don't waste your money .
Got my Civic tinted for a great price and i'm very pleased with the results. A+++
Painting can be a significant undertaking, whether you're painting just one room or an entire home. While some people like to take on this project themselves, many choose to hire professionals to ensure the task is completed correctly.
Matte paint doesn't have a shiny quality when it dries, which many homeowners prefer for their interior walls. This is the most popular style of paint for homes. It covers up irregularities in the wall well but is also easily blemished.
Matte Enamel Paint
Matte enamel paint has all the positive qualities of matte paint but will last longer and isn't scuffed as easily.
Gloss paint will dry with a shine to it and is the second-most popular choice for interior wall paint. The shiny quality highlights imperfections in a surface, so people tend to stay away from it when painting wood.
Semi-gloss is also shiny but less so than gloss paint. It's more commonly used on trim than on walls.
Satin falls somewhere between gloss and matte in terms of shininess. It will highlight imperfections well, like gloss, but is easy to clean.
Eggshell is also between gloss and matte on the shininess scale, but it won't highlight imperfections quite as much as satin, semi-gloss, or gloss.
Exterior paints have similar choices for finishes as interior paints, but the pros and cons can be different for outdoor use.
Though gloss paint will make imperfections easily seen, it will also hold up to the elements the best. This paint is best suited for areas of a home or building that are frequently used, like door frames.
Semi-gloss paint is similarly long-lasting but isn't as shiny as gloss.
Satin paint is commonly used for siding but will display irregularities underneath if the siding isn't in good shape.
Flat paint is the best choice if painting over siding that has many dents, scrapes, or other imperfections.
If you're repainting a home that has been previously painted with oil-based paint, your best bet is to stick with this option. Water-based paint layered over old oil-based paint will peel easily.
Water-based paint, or latex paint, dries quickly and cleans up easily, making it the preferred paint for a home's exterior. It will also expand when warm and contract when cool, which means it will hold up in all types of weather.
When embarking on a project as big as painting your home, it's important to know ahead of time what kind of quality you can expect from the painters you hire. Don't settle for the first one you find or the cheapest option. Instead, do your homework to be sure that you hire a trustworthy professional who knows how to paint a house well.
The first thing you'll do when hiring a painter is request quotes from three or four in your area. If you reach out to too many, you'll wind up wasting time narrowing down your list; too few and you may not end up with the best quality or right price.
The typical price range for an interior paint job is between $400 and $4,120, with the average falling around $1,670, depending on the scope of the project and paint requests. It will typically cost around $380 to $790 to paint a typical 10-by-12 foot room.
The cost to paint a home's exterior is a little higher: between $730 and $5,600, with an average of $2,624. The typical home of between 500 and 1,500 square feet will generally cost between $1,000 and $3,000, but this will change depending on the number of stories and home location.
If a quote seems high, ask the contractor what is increasing the price point. Perhaps it's something that can be negotiated, or maybe this business is just overpricing their services. On the other hand, be skeptical of any price points that seem unfathomably low. There could be a reason their prices are below the industry norm - perhaps their quality standards are uncommonly low, too.
Once you have quotes, conduct an over-the-phone interview with your prospects. Some important questions to ask your painter include:
1. Do you have insurance?
It's never a good idea to hire a contractor whose business isn't properly insured. Ask both about comprehensive business liability insurance and workers' compensation, and don't be hesitant to ask for proof. If you are unsure of the validity of the insurance, you can also call the insurance company to double-check that it is an active policy.
2. Do you have a warranty?
Not offering a warranty is a red flag, and you may want to be cautious about hiring a company that doesn't provide one. If they have a warranty, ask how long it lasts, and what it covers. Additionally, you'll want to get the warranty in writing should you need to refer to it later.
3. Who, specifically, will be in my house, and can I trust them?
You always have a right to know who will be entering your home. If the person you are speaking with says he or she will not be personally supervising the project, ask who will be, what their role is, and how long they've been with the company.
Also, don't be afraid to ask if the painters are trustworthy people. Unfortunately, there are plenty of cases where a painter has stolen items from a home or caused damage to the house or injury to the homeowner. Subcontractors may not be as skilled as employees, and the contractor you're hiring may not have much experience working with them, making them more of a risk. Additionally, ask if the painters are employees or subcontractors, and what the screening or hiring process is like. If the company conducts background checks, that's a good sign.
4. What kind of training do your employees receive?
If the contractor makes a point to train new hires on safety techniques as well as quality standards on the job, you're probably in good hands.
5. What kind of paint will you use?
The quality of the paint will affect how good the walls look when the project is completed. If your contractor says they plan on using a paint you don't like, feel free to request an alternative.
6. How long have you been in business, and do you have references?
A well-established company will have more experience and likely more references for you to reach out to than a new company that's just getting off the ground. Be sure to ask for references so you can speak to former customers about their experience working with the painter. When speaking to these people, ask about:
7. How much wall prep is included in the price?
For a long-lasting paint job, a clean wall is crucial. Ask how they plan to clean your walls, if at all, before getting started. A high-quality company will thoroughly prepare a wall so that the paint will lay smoothly and last a long time.
8. Are you active in the community and are you involved in any trade organizations?
Community involvement shows the company:
Additionally, being active in trade organizations indicates it is likely up to date on the latest industry best practices and that the company is dedicated to its trade. Also, a Better Bureau Business membership demonstrates the company is stable, confident, and willing to let potential customers check them out before hiring them.
If the company you hire is involved in a trade organization, it shows they take pride in their work, and are dedicated to providing quality service. Some top trade organizations painters might be a part of include:
Painting and Decorating Contractors of America
PDCA connects painters and home decorators through local chapters and councils. The organization also provides webinars, educational videos, and podcasts so members can stay up to date on the latest best practices and news.
American Coatings Association
The ACA doesn't focus on best practices so much as it does on best products. The nonprofit is dedicated to research and development of high-quality paint products as well as sustainability issues.
Finishing Contractors Association
The FCA has members that are painters as well as professionals who focus on flooring, drywall, and other elements to home construction and renovation.
Better Business Bureau
The BBB isn't a painter-specific group but rather an organization that is dedicated to ensuring that consumers can access information about anyone they do business with. The BBB also rates companies based on a Standards of Trust scale, which goes from A+ to F. A company doesn't have to be a member to get a grade, and it's a good idea to check to see how your contractor is scored as well as its membership status.
