“ One word = OUTSTANDING. William's attention to detail and quality of finish was amazing. He went above and beyond what was expected to finish off far more of the house than we initially planned and all without breaking our budget. From helping do some extensive touching up to areas we initially hadn't planned on painting, to providing absolutely essential advice and guidance on colour choice. I'm soooo glad we chose William because I hazard to think of the colour and quality of painting we would have ended up with without him. Champion painter! ” mattersdorff
Reviews of Final Stroke Painting & Decorating.
I recently had William to paint my internal doors. His quote was reasonable, he turned up exactly when he said he would, he completed the work with fine attention to detail within the allocated time and cleaned up any sign of mess. He is a proud and professional painter and I will definitely use him again when I paint the exterior of my home in the coming months. It is a pleasure to deal with a trade person who shows you respect and their own professionalism by turning up when they say they will and by doing a fantastic job.
William did a great job painting the whole interior of our two-bedroom unit. Not only were we happy with the fact the price came in on his quote, but the finished product was spot on. He is reliable, turns up when he says he will and works efficiently and cleanly. I would gladly recommend him to anyone, not matter how small or how big the job. Hard to find honest, reliable tradies these days, thanks William.
William did a wonderful job on the exterior of our house and has just completed the interior. While it did take longer than we expected, if it had not been for William's thorough preparation we would not have found the damp problems caused through a leak in the balcony. William is very thorough.
We had William paint the interior of our house and the attention to detail was super! The job was at an hourly rate estimation and the final invoice came out better than we thought! He was very efficient, honest and reliable. They were very genuine and professional in every aspect while working with us. Couldn't be happier - highly recommended!
We employed them to paint our house.
We agreed on the $/per hour bases of payment. 40$ for painters and 50$ per hour.
They have pitched up with 4 other painters ALL qualified they assured me. (All looking like surfers).
After 5 days ,5 Painters and 10377 $ !!! LATER they managed to paint the following:
1. balcony with wooden deck (deck - sand and cilidd but no complited)
2. main bedroom
3. main bathroom ( no ceiling included)
4. lounge ( no ceiling included)
NO doors or door frames were painted at that point and they were asked to leave.
Try to fire painters with all you furniture in the middle of rooms,covered by sheets and blankets, rolled carpets ,and nowhere to sit.It is NOT an easy decision.
My wife really hoped that they would finish upstairs by friday ( 5 days).But it was NOT to be. SO we had enough.
I had a .."painter" taping blue plastic under each door in prep for painting. 2 days and costs of hundreds of dollars while simple card board slid under would do at any time you want to paint the door.
I did request that they separate the painters to one room each but they refused stating that the work as a .. team( normally hidden behind the door).
Basically 2,5 rooms plus balcony and deck.not even half way thru the house at 10377 $.
Crack preparation - they tried but I would like to show you pictures of the results. Please come and see.
So do not work on $/hour basis with them!!!
2 weeks later they have offered to complete this job with the upfront agreed $ figure.
Which I agreed to as it was difficult for us to live like this before I could find somebody else. They did complete. Total "damage" ( both ways) was however to much.
William and his team have just completed painting the exterior of my home in Avalon and I couldn't be happier with the result. They have done a first class job! From beginning to end William was extremely professional, reassuring and delightful to deal with as were his wonderful team of people. It was an extensive job and William was always on site working alongside his team ensuring that everything went smoothly. The focus was always on doing a first class job, which they did, and it was obvious from the first that William takes great pride in his work. William's great reviews are very much deserved and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and Final Stroke Painting to anyone. Thank you William!! Susan
We engaged Final Stroke to paint the gutters, eaves and down-pipes on our two storey house on the basis that when William came round to give us a quote it was the most thorough process.
That is, he took us through the work programme, surface preparation and our colour choices and how they would look. He also advised when he could do the work and made a commitment that the work would be done on time and to a high standard.
We were not disappointed, the work was split over a few different weekends at our request and he and his team turned up on-time every day when he said they would - and even rang the day before to confirm they would be there.
The work was performed to a high standard and he made sure we were across any issues (like a rusting down-pipe, or other poor surfaces which needed special priming).
William was on-site with his painters at all times, so they were properly overseen whilst the job was being done.
We would recommend Final Stroke Painting & Decorating and William Calvo to others seeking a quality job performed with care and enthusiasm.
