I started this process almost 2 months ago by getting estimates from paint companies that send “crews” to your home to do the work. First thing the estimates were more than double what I thought they should have been, “you pay extra for the that crew”. Also having 4 years of painting at a trade school, one condescending salesman boasted how quick his team would be but I thought to myself “what about the cure time for the prep work?” Anyway, I decided my family needs to eat so my search continues…So I call Jim, we walk around the house, he tells me what he sees, and then the bottom line…Fortunately for me he was available right away, like I said it has been almost 2 months just getting through the estimates. Jim did a great job all around, from offering suggestions, to painting with the most care.” I did get to see him do some of his work and he works as though he was prepping his own place.” Do yourself or a friend a favor, if you need a home painted call Jim, you’ll be happy you did as I am! Thanks Jim

jdwhite custom painting
We hired JD (Dan) and his wife Tammi to paint our townhouse that had absolutely been destroyed by previous tenants. The tenants had painted the walls bright blue, and we thought we'd never be able to fix that. Dan came in with a super affordable quote, and he got to work that week. That in itself was awesome because sometimes contractors aren't too reliable. He did a great job, the house looks brand new again, and he helped out with other handyman projects as well. I highly recommend Dan to anyone who's looking for an honest, reliable, skilled and affordable painter/contractor. I would def hire Dan in the future, and we feel fortunate to have found him.

Water Damage Orlando Fl
We were very happy with the Water Damage Orlando Fl service provided after a fairly major basement flood. The customer support called us back within a few minutes of our call (before 4am!). He was very reassuring and knowledgeable which helped ease the panic. Work was done quickly, efficiently and very professionally. The team was fantastic and we are very confident of the results. Thank you very much for helping us out of a very wet situation!

Water Damage Orlando Fl
I had the pleasure of referring Water Damage Orlando Fl to one of my very best clients and I'm happy to report they did an exceptional job. The technician was very professional, on time and did not attempt to up-sell my client with unwanted extras. I will continue to refer any of my clients that are in need of a professional restoration company, thanks again for a job well done.

Water Damage Orlando Fl
Thank you very much for all of your efforts to help us during our time of need. The Water Damage technician came out to help clean up our recently flooded basement. He was prompt and did a very effective job of removing the water and sanitizing our basement. Hopefully, I won’t need these kinds of services in the future. But if I do, I will call Water Damage Orlando Fl again.

Katara
A Katara house is a nice product but Katara's follow-up as a builder is horrendous. We were left to deal with out-of-code construction, open permits and repairs that lingered on for almost a year. I wouldn't want to buy a NEW Katara home again. The first owner has to work out all the kinks and will be extremely frustrated by the lack of support from Katara.

I had contacted Jim about couple weeks ago to inquiry about painting the inside of my home. Not only did he quoted me the best price he was professional and kind. He stated it would take 3 days to completed, however he did it in two. The paint looks great and I can not be anymore happy with the job he did.I would definitely use Jim again .

RBS Construction and Roofing
I had RBS C&R come out to my house do a property evaluation. Very professional and thorough. Very excited to have them do the work to my house. So far everything has went very smooth. Definitely recommend RBS C&R to anyone and everyone. I also have two other friends of mine doing work with them and they have said the same. Check RBS out.

Tips & Advices
If there is ever a dispute regarding payment over the course of the project, a contractor or subcontractor could place a payment claim, or lien, on your property. To avoid this, ask the contractor to sign a lien release, which is a legal agreement that states that any payment accepted is final. This can come in handy if a contractor has his or her own payment issues with their subcontractors. Signing a lien release form certifies that any payment made by a client to the contractor is enough to pay for any goods or services rendered.
Absolutely ask. Paying too much up front offers the homeowner minimal leverage if the quality of work does not meet expectations or contractual specifications. Try to establish a reasonable pay schedule, such as paying 10 percent of the total cost for each 10 percent of the work that is completed. Include this payment plan in the contract, as well.
Before any money changes hands, there should be a contract to sign. Make sure the specifics of the work and all costs are listed in the contract, including details. If you forget to have something included in the contract after signing it, there's rarely a chance of recourse.
Ask the contractor for proof of their certification before signing anything, as well as their proof of insurance. You should also check your homeowners insurance policy to see if they offer coverage for contracted work. You may want to call your insurance provider and ask for more details on what your plan will and won't cover.
Yes. Plans for how the work site will be cleaned at the end of each day as well as at the conclusion of work need to be put in writing. An experienced general contractor should make every effort to keep the workspace clean and prevent dirtying or damaging any other area. Even so, talk with the contractor about the daily schedule, the logistics of transporting workers and equipment, and how cleanup will be handled.
