Testimonial

I am a local business owner and my first experience with Roberts Wallpaper and Paint was a large project at my dental office in 2001. The entire dental office (approximately 4000 square feet) had old wallpaper that needed replacing. The owner, Taff Roberts, gave me an estimate and was willing to work around our schedule on evenings and weekends. The estimate was reasonable and he came highly recommended by another business. The project was completed in a timely manner and right on the estimate. The wallpaper is still up and looks as good as it did the day he finished. Since that first experience Taff has been “the man” for my wallpaper and painting projects. He had done all my painting both interior and exterior at my office. He has done multiple interior projects at my home. He has done challenging exterior projects on our rental properties. With all off our projects he is on time, courteous and professional. The few times that I was not satisfied with his employees work, it was promptly attended to by Mr. Roberts.

Most recently Mr. Roberts has been doing and interior painting project in my dental office. He has been using an oil based paint to repaint all the trim work. Each weekend he comes in having been trusted to have a key, does what he can in the time available. By Monday morning I come into work and everything is clean and tidy as if he had never been there. The only way that I know he has been in the office is a faint smell of paint and fresh looking trim.

Roberts Wallpaper and Paint has done at least 20 different painting and wallpaper projects for me including wallpaper removal, wallpaper hanging, interior and exterior painting and staining over the last 12 years. Every project has been completed to my satisfaction in a timely and professional manner. He is very busy, so is not always immediately available, but when he starts a new job, he begins when he says he will and does not “abandon” the project until completion. Various projects that he has completed in our dental office he has done in the evenings and on weekends to minimize the disruption of our business. His knowledge of paint and materials if vast and is a valuable resource on all related projects.

Roberts Painting has done at least 6 projects on our home over the last three years and will be doing another one soon. They have performed two types of work: 1. interior painting including patching plaster and taping cracks and 2. stripping, sanding, and refinishing exterior redwood. The quality of the work is superb, noticeably superior to that of some prior painters in this house. From the eggshell finish on the walls to the stain on the beams and the gloss on the metal radiator covers everything looks neat and fresh. Our home is historic and we are very fussy so this is no small compliment.

Our experiences were uniformly excellent. Taff, the owner, was helpful in advising us about potential problems. In one case he told us that we shouldn’t paint until we solved a water problem that we didn’t realize we had. In another he advised us to use a particular marine varnish for durability. The worksite was kept clean; tarps and masking are routine. The workers were on time and courteous. Also they were quiet — no radios blaring. Typically we contacted Taff well before we wanted painting done so we would be put on his schedule. He honors his promises for start dates and once the workers begin they continue to completion without delays or interludes doing other jobs. Our bill was never more than the estimate unless there was a change in the project and then we discussed and agreed upon a different amount. Taff is a very pleasant person, and very easy to work with. If you want high quality work at a fair price, I highly recommend Roberts Painting.

Description of Work:
Taff helped us correct the damage done by a renter and re-paint multiple rooms in the rental house. This was the most recent use of his services. But we have used this service many times before for exterior house painting, for wallpapering, for interior painting.

Comments:
We have used Taff Roberts’ services for many years and based upon his quality and the past experiences we don’t even bother getting competitive bids. My point in this review is to state that he has helped us out in my own home and my expectations for quality and working with expensive wallpapering and painting and he has performed work on rental properties for us as well. The latest experience was because we needed a very quick turnaround in a rental property situation. The renters had completely ruined a wallpapered dining room and he was able to repair the damage, suggest some color changes for lightening up the space and then he also completed the rest of the interior room painting. This was done quickly, professionally and with great care for the natural woodwork, ceilings, and carpeting underneath.

I also understand that as a landlord, we could have done much of this work ourselves, but based upon time and cost effort, it was just so much better to have Taff do the work. I also didn’t have to worry about the end result, he frankly does a much better job than we could have done. And pride is a factor even in rental property as well as your home. He started work early, worked throughout the day, we stopped in several times for other issues, and they were always on task, not sitting around and wasting time. All of the workers were respectful and they worked as a team. They were there when they said they would be, on time. They also cleaned up after themselves and explained the entire process before they started. Their estimate and quote was accurate and even came in a little lower as they passed on the painting materials discount for us.

I absolutely would use their services again without any reservations. No hesitations.

Description of Work:
Taff removed the old wallpaper, prepared the surface for the new, and hung the new paper in one of our rooms.

Comments:
First, Taff gave us a firm price after visiting our house. He committed to the day he would do the work. He arrived on time. He proceeded to do the work exactly as he had promised, finishing when he had promised. He cleaned up after himself, helped us move furniture back. We wrote a check. He seemed pleased and we were thrilled. Before actually doing the work, Taff did give us some guidance choosing the wallpaper, for which we were grateful. We have used other people to paint, sometimes with mixed results. We would use Taff again, without reservation.

Description of Work:
Mr. Roberts has completed two large and one small painting job for me. The first was a painting fix job for a project I had started but could not finish. He recommended paint colors and finished my project. The second job was a larger living room project. He was professional and neat. He left no mess and was very pleasant. I trusted them in my home when I was not there. Mr. Roberts again helped my select colors for the wall – which I could not be happier with. Most recently, I asked Mr. Roberts to paint my kitchen and dining room. He made suggestions and did a wonderful job. He was quick and thorough. He always arrives on time and estimates well his project duration.

Comments:
Everything went very well. I would have no reservation in using Mr. Roberts again for myself and have recommended him to many friends and neighbors since. Mr. Roberts is good at what he does and does his job pleasantly.

Description Of  Work:
Taff sanded texture off several large walls then primed and papered them.

Comments:
Taff did an amazing job! He sanded the texture off the walls without leaving dust all over so I didn’t have to arrange to have the business cleaned before we opened the next day. The wallpaper looks perfect! All the seams and edges are great. It’s been seven months and nothing is peeling or looking worn at all and this is a business location. I should also mention that Taff Roberts is exceptionally professional. He always answered my calls or called me back right away. He always showed up when he said he would. His invoices didn’t have any surprises on them. I’ve dealt with many contractors and Taff Roberts is not your typical contractor. Thanks Taff!!

Description Of Work:
Taff Roberts removed wallpaper, prepared, patched and painted ceilings and walls, hung wallpaper, and offered helpful advice regarding color and texture choices.

Member Comments:
Taff Roberts has worked his magic in 6 rooms in our 130 year-old home. From the planning stages to the final results, Taff and his assistants are professional, knowledgeable and kind.

Before each job, Taff spent time with us in our home, making sure that he knew exactly what we wanted. He offered advice regarding wallpaper and paint choices, and provided an accurate estimate of costs. While painting the 17 foot-high skylights in our kitchen, or finishing the finest wallpapering details, Taff’s experience and knowledge was evident. Taff arrived on time and finished the work on time. Older homes often offer surprises during renovations, but Taff’s expertise never wavered. He patched and prepared surfaces, and hung wallpaper on walls that were never easily square! We are ecstatic about the final outcome, and we look forward to working with Taff again.
