I would give more stars if there were more stars to give. As a retired interior designer, I'm particular about the quality of a paint job...and I have used Pavel and crew in my own home for years. With a background in fine art, he has never lost his attention to detail. The prep work is arguably the most important part of the job and he is meticulous in getting the "canvas" perfect before it receives paint. They clean up the job site each evening which is both professional and respectful of the home.
Last year, they painted and stained the variety of finishes in my husband's remodeled home office. The new wainscot and window trim was sprayed several times to give it an unbelievably smooth finish. The crown moulding and french doors were stained to match a reclaimed door that was used on the new closet. The wood species were different and yet he was able to achieve a very close match.
Most recently, he did a beautiful "old world" multi-color and glaze finish on the textured walls and ceiling of our new wine cellar. He did a few samples for me and was great at understanding my vision. The result is absolutely beautiful and exactly what I wanted. He also recently refinished/restained and sealed our deck and it's many stairs and railings. The old finish hadn't held up very well and Pavel recommended the right products to make sure that the new finish would have a longer life. He gave us options and even wrote separate, detailed estimates for each. They moved all of the heavy pots, furniture and gigantic BBQ off of the deck and put it back when they were done. The deck honestly looks better than the hardwood floors in the house!
His prices are very fair...actually quite reasonable for the quality of the job. The guys are great to have around and I trust them in my home implicitly whether I am there or not. If he is running late (stuck in traffic), he will text me and let me know. Honestly, I wish I could infuse his work ethic into every sub that I have dealt with! Next up: the entire exterior of our three story home (after a bit of a facelift to our 1929 "old girl"), and Venetian plaster in the Living room. I don't even bother getting any other estimates...I know the price will be fair and the job will be perfection with Pavel!

We hired Pavel to paint the exterior of our house. He did a superb job. We then hired him to paint the interior of the house (walls, baseboards and crown molding) and he did an amazing job. Pavel is a real artist - guests notice the quality of the paint work. He and his crew are also reliable, courteous and do a great job at cleaning the worksite. Truly outstanding work! We recommend them without hesitation!!!

I have used Pavel for numerous years for my business as well as my personal home. They have done interior as well as exterior work. He and his staff are very professional and do a fantastic job. They are all friendly and a pleasure to have onsite whether it is at my business or my home. Pavel is very trustworthy which is so important when you are letting someone into your personal space. He is a true professional and will spend the necessary time to make sure the work is done correctly and to his clients satisfaction. An added benefit, he is a nice man and works hard!
