Wrapping up the year!

Stoughton ~  A quick assist for a inconvenienced family! This young couple had experienced some water damage over the previous winter months and, into October, were still put out of their house due to construction renovations. A "mildly flustered" father who had been living with his in-laws for about 5 months (mildly being an understatement), requested that I get the work done as quickly as humanly possible. HAHA!
     Patched, Sanded, and applied two coats of finish paint to all the walls in the Kitchen, Upstairs Hallway, Downstairs Entry, Rear Hall, and Living Room ... in TWO days! Granted, there were 26 hours worked in those two days, but the customer was happy that he could move his furniture in and get his life back to normal!

Malden ~ Phase two of an on-going project; this time around we are fixing up the upstairs hallway, stairway, and front entry (inside and out). One coat of white ceiling paint on all the ceilings, two coats on the trim, and two coats on all the walls (patching and sanding first of course). Here are a couple photos of the finish work ...

Westwood ~ This next one was a doozy of a job! We completely scraped and power-sanded ALL of the peeling paint off an old garage right on High Street (conveniently located a couple houses down from Dunkin Donuts, a fact that certainly didn't go overlooked during our 2+ weeks on site). Then, when our spray gun failed to work (of course it did, why wouldn't it), we applied 4 coats of finish paint to all of the body by hand, and another 2 coats to all the trim and doors. While we had the weather cooperating, we also scraped, sanded, and painted four upper level exterior windows on the exterior of the main house.
      Once that wonderful bit of ridiculously hard work was completed, we moved into the house for phase two. We completely stripped all of the old wallpaper from the upstairs and downstairs hallways including the stairway and began the tedious work of skimming, taping, and patching ALL the cracks on this 100+ year old home. After sanding and cleaning up those areas we painted the ceilings and all of the walls twice. Finally, we taped, patched, and sanded some extensive cracks in the Television room and painted the ceiling, walls, and trim in that room. A HUGE amount of work! Our customers were very happy with the results all around and are looking forward to doing more business with us in the future ... Sounds good to us! 

Walpole ~ With the good there is always bad, and I think it would be a poor representation of myself to only talk about the good stuff on here. On this exterior commercial job, likely due to the rotting wooden clapboards, the new paint job applied only a year and a half earlier had begun to peel. I returned to the scene of the crime, completely scraped and sanded all of the failing paint from the building's exterior, primed and painted everything to match the existing finish (materials and labor all absorbed by Tonal Painting). No one ever likes to have to revisit a completed job, but the customer was happy when I fixed it, and I got my clean conscience back ... so all is well in the world once again !

Milford ~ Where in the world is Milford you ask? Well, it's a 65 mile one way trip for me ... so, like I say "Have work, will travel!" Telling the long version of this story would take some time, so here is the short version with some pictures for your viewing pleasure:
Patched, sanded and painted (two coats) in the Master Bedroom, Upstairs Bathroom, Downstairs Office, and THREE bedrooms. Luckily the customers hadn't moved their furniture into their new home yet, so these 6 rooms were completed in five long days totaling about 55 hours of work.
