Betsy & Del Shelburne

“My husband and I had our house painted (inside) by James and I must say he did an OUTSTANDING job. He is an extremely professional and “clean” worker at the end of each day everything was put up and the household ran normal even though it was a three day job there was never any interruption to our day. We love the colors and have had many comments about how good it looks! Yes, we have referred him to many of our friends and will continue to do so.”
