TESTIMONIALS
Over the past year we have had two painting projects that Bumblebee Painters have completed.

From the initial phone call to the office to schedule an estimate visit, to the completion of these two projects, everyone has been friendly, professional and all work done on time and to our full satisfaction.

Additionally, we had a project that needed work done at the peak of our a-frame and Laura and her team found a way to assist us in mounting a curtain 20 feet off the ground.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about all the individuals I have worked with at Bumblebee Painters.
I would highly recommend them and plan to use them again for another project in the fall.

"Why are we happy to write a testimonial for Bumblebee Painters?  

Because they have done  GREAT jobs!    In the last twenty years,  Bumblebee has painted our house twice; their original paint-job lasted thirteen years and the second paint job is still going strong!    Each time, their excellent work was done professionally, in a timely fashion and exactly as promised.   Of course, as with any home renovation or any contractor, small problems cropped up as the work went along, but Bumblebee acted quickly and with great care to make everything "right."    And right it was: with both paint jobs, our house looked (and still looks) great.   Steele Steffy and his crew were always a pleasure to work with, and we would not hesitate to hire them again or to recommend them to our best friends.  In fact we recommend them to our friends whenever we get the chance!"

"I truly have been meaning to write to tell you how pleased I am with the floor refinishing that you and your fellas did at my house.  Not only do I get to look at the beautifully renewed wood throughout my downstairs, I get to see you and the same crew, this week, next door doing an equally fabulous job painting my neighbor's house.  You and the 2 men who restored my floors are kind and respectful and were a pleasure with which to do business. 

Thank you for your promptness and professionalism in completing the work that I now get to enjoy every day!  Thanks!"

We were quite pleased with the work that Bumblebee painters did on our house. The job turned out to involve quite a bit of carpentry, most of which was subcontracted, as well as removing and reinstalling the storm windows and the shutters, and some exterior masonry work. There were the usual number of small hiccups and changes in the plan along the way, and we found Steele and the crew to be very reasonable and responsive. The job was completed in the fall. When we discovered that we had problems reinstalling some of the (ancient) storm windows in the fall, and with a few interior windows not opening in the spring, Steele sent a crew back both times and made it right with no charge or complaint. We were surprised what a difference it made to remove the storms window frames and repaint the window frames, and that this could be done at all with such old storm windows. Their bid was the middle of 3 bids that we solicited (the two lower ones were close), and we felt that the price was competitive. And most importantly, we and our friends agree that they did a beautiful job."

"In May 2010, Bumblebee Painters completed carpentry work and painting at our house and we whole heartedly recommend them. Laura, the estimator, arrived early for her appointment and e-mailed the bid before other contractors even responded to our phone calls. Laura gave us a start date and the crew arrived on time, and except for inclement weather, worked each day at our house until the project was completed. The work site was cleaned every day at work's end. Steele himself checked out the progress several times, expediting progress by bringing out necessary supplies.

We thought our job would require replacing fascia boards on only one end of the house, but eventually wood was replaced in sections on three sides. Mike, the carpenter, was like a magician with a magic wand! In one-half hour, he wrote his materials list based on his measurements, and worked throughout the day, meticulously fitting each piece. He even replaced brick molding around a door as well as a threshold, saving us from having to hire another worker.

The painters were conscientious, polite, good humored and dedicated to detail to have the outcome we desired. Even the aluminum gutter surfaces were cleaned with Krud Kutter! On the last day of the job, Pat and Mike spent time looking over the house, touching up and inspecting. We couldn't have found more cooperative painters anywhere, and Bumblebee Painters has our full endorsement."
