Dear Steve,

IMG_0719Our addition is complete and it is beautiful! Thank you to you and your entire crew for the great work you did in our home. I can’t say enough for your crew and the work they did, you should be very proud of them.

You and the other contractors on the project all work so well together – you compliment each other and have the same high standards for your work. Thank You!

I know I will be using you soon to do the other rooms that need work.

Steve and Grace,

Metallic Rice Paper FinishThank you again for the beautiful metallic rice paper finish you completed on our walls in our Library. You both truly listened to what we were looking for and to our amazement came up with the perfect color, texture and variation. Everyone who has visited compliments the work. Your team was meticulous in the application and it shows. We were also so impressed that you were here to oversee each step of the process. Thank you again.

Best Regards,

Allen & Kathy Jezek

Dear Steve,

Enclosed is the balance for the painting work completed on our home in August. It is such a pleasure to look up (and at the garage doors!) and see such a beautiful job. You really do “fine painting and decorating” as advertised in your brochure. I might use another word – artistry.

The painters on the job – Rob, Angel and Oscar – did not only do excellent prep and painting work, but they were very professional, respectful of our home and yard and responsible.

I look forward to our next project.

Thank you again to you, Grace and your craftsmen.

Refinished TableThank you for finishing by Thanksgiving. Very nice job on the table, we are extremely pleased with it. Family members that see it can’t believe it’s the same table. It will be with us for a long time. Thank you again.

Best wishes,

We highly recommend you!

Dear Steve,

My table looks amazing, seriously showroom quality. You took an old, weathering piece of furniture that I loved and made it brand new again. I would have destroyed my table in short order if left to fix it; you saved it from certain murder! Thank you so much Steve and company!

Thank you for the beautiful finish on our entertainment center. Your staff is very professional and hard working. We appreciate how quickly you completed the project. With a baby on the way, it will make life run a little more smoothly around here!

Thank you again. We are very pleased with our experience with Ragsdale, Inc.!

Mr. Ragsdale,

Thank you very much for sending two ‘nice’ men over to take care of my wallpaper in our master shower area. They were very neat and I was pleased that all they had to do was wipe down the area with my bleach. I thought that was very clever and a lot easier.

Thanks again,

Dear Steve,

The library is finally finished and it is just what I dreamed it would be. Thank you for all of your help procuring the panels and my thanks to your very professional staff who were wonderful to work with and who seemed to care as much about the project as I did.

I plan to recommend you to my clients and I am sure they will be equally pleased.

Dear Steve,

I can’t say enough good things, or tell too many people about just how splendid a job you folks did at my home.
Inside and out, top to bottom, everyone connected with this project was not only professional; they were positively artistic in their approach. So much so, that the job exceeded my expectations by a few thousand country miles.

Workmanship, service and attention to detail like this are rare these days. And I’m sure you value artisans like Sonny and Carlos as much as I do. Fact is, I find some detail to appreciate about their craftsmanship most every day.

Please feel free to use me as a reference-although I have recommended you to so many people that, if they all come though, you might consider putting me on commission. 🙂

Many thanks for a job well done, it was truly a pleasure.

With kind regards,

Larry Simon | Highland Park

Dear Steve,

Thank you so much for your excellent work in my apartment. I am thrilled. It is a joy to look at my walls, the woodwork, the trim…. Everything is beautiful, it’s art.

Thank you!!

Your employees are to be commended for their efficiency, politeness and overall excellence in their work.
I’ve recommended your company to many of my friends.

Thank you,

Recently your company finished painting the exterior of my house on McKinley Road. This is to let you know that the quality of the job was great. Your staff was so professional and easy to work with. The crew that worked on the house was very cooperative and neat. Having done remodeling work on my house I have come across so many trades that are incompetent, it can really be discouraging.

Also, you did some interior painting at my sister’s house, the Lenzini Residence on Ashley Road, and also did a great job working around my furniture that I designed for that house.

Feel free to use me for a reference although you probably don’t need anymore.
