I spied a truck pulling up to the neighbor’s house and watched as the crew began work tidying up the small colonial on our block. I began to feel a little impatient as I was waiting to start our own exterior paint job. Later that same day a friend called saying that a customer of ours called her and excitedly exclaimed, “The painters are here! The painters are here!”
As an adult, having a contractor show up is a little like a child seeing the ice cream truck pulling onto their street. You’ve been waiting, and they’re finally here. It’s such a relief to finally see the work get started. When choosing ice cream it’s easy to figure out if you’ll like what’s behind the wrapper. With painting contractors, it’s a little trickier.
Case and point: we were called to give a painting estimate in Hopkinton. This beautiful house had just been painted a few years ago, but was showing unusual wear and tear. When we began to scrape, the paint began coming off in sheets. The previous painters wanted to do a quick and dirty job and improperly prepped and primed the house. This customer only two years later is paying to scrape and paint the entire house AGAIN!
If you’re in the Boston area or the Metro West and in need of residential painting, there is still time to squeeze in that exterior job. Consider us if you need to repaint your trim or even scrape and change your paint color. With Optimus Painting, you are making an investment. Rest assured that the job will be done the right way the first time around. We promise the satisfaction will last far longer than an ice cream cone.
