This company is reliable, meets budgeted amount, takes pride in the work they do. Paint and wood products were of good quality. They meet deadlines, and also do a thorough cleanup when the work is finished.. We had the exterior of our home painted, with rotting boards being replaced because we either knew about them, or when painting stopped because the crew spotted others that needed replacing. Repairs were done at a nominal expense. We hired this company to paint interior walls and ceilings as well at reasonable cost. The care with which they protected floors and furniture was wonderful. Painting crews were respectful and punctual.

Being in the housing development field, I have worked with many contractor in Massachusetts over the last 30 years. I found myself needing some work done on my summer home. My brother-in-law gave me Mike's information. I found him and his workers to be one of the best hire I have ever made. They were fast on the bidding process, and came in right on target. They started and completed the job on time. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a project done without the headaches. That is why when I found I need a deck built the following summer I called them.

Mike with About Coatings did a fantastic job painting walls, trim, doors and kitchen cabinets. They carefully planned each piece of the job and discussed it all with me. Worked with my schedule which included some evenings and weekends. Put all furniture back when they were done. Cleaned up everything every day. Were very respectful to us and our needs in the house as they worked. They even took on some other small repair jobs and hanging light fixtures to make the space complete. I felt like Mike did the quality work on our house that he would have done on his own house. he is a bit of a perfectionist and that is a great trait to have as a contractor.

About Coatings and owner Mike Butt did a fantastic job remodeling my condo. I had a sprinkler head burst and needed to get the place put back together quickly. Mike was responsive and worked quickly and efficiently. He repainting the entire place, installed a new maple floor, carpeting and completely redid my shower from a fiberglass one to a beautiful and precisely installed tile enclosure. I was impressed with it all and also have since hired them to repaint my shop in Portland. I would highly recommend them. They will do the job right ! I have attached some pictures of my new shower. I wish I had some of the old shower for comparison. Give them a call for any painting or carpentry or tile work you may have.

Mike and his team are true professionals and their skill set is vast. Painting, dry wall, tile, laminate, hard wood, carpentry, the list goes on. Right away they understood the vision I had for my basement and worked within my budget. They were able to patch existing holes in a finished ceiling and blend it in beautifully, fix and insulate a hole in the wall caused by a busted water pipe, install a new threshold, paint, and install tile and laminate flooring with a perfect transition piece between the two. When finished the enitre crew cleaned up the area real nice. Throughout the project Mike checked in with me to measure the progress and confirm that I was satisfied. This allowed me to request subtle changes when necessary instead of waiting to the end of the project. I would highly recommend About Coatings.

Mike and his crew did an excellent job on my home in Portland, Maine last summer. He worked with me to give me a very reasonable rate and his crew worked quickly to paint about half of the outside of my home and to spruce up the downstairs of the inside, including some ceilings. The crew cleaned up nicely after themselves and I felt that the quality of the work was very good-excellent. Mike was easy to deal with and flexible. I am a happy customer!
