My assigned dorm room desperately needed a new look so my roomies and I decided to get it painted. I had excess paint at home, so to save money, I convinced my parents to contribute towards creating a more conducive study environment by sending over some leftover paint for our room makeover…and my parents agreed.
The paint finally arrived and of course we needed a painter. We got texcoat paint, which is a bit rough, so we really needed someone who knew their stuff (painting wise). At first, we called a painter guy who we thought knew his stuff but sadly he was so confused and didn’t know the right colors to use. To make matters worse, he didn’t have any TOOLS! The fake guy finally decided to call a real painter and that was how I was introduced to Sully.
Sully at first glance doesn’t look serious. I mean, you will not want him to handle your stuff because his hair is dyed (at least when I first met him his hair was dyed) and he had 2 ear piercings and all that, but it turned out he really knew his stuff.
He got into my room and was disappointed by the mess the prior guys had created so he agreed to handle the job. Sully claims to have travelled abroad to learn his painting trade. Even if it’s true or not, he is a good painter. He was very meticulous about everything and took his time to adjust and correct mistakes. He is a very good conversationalist and he is ready to explain things. It’s easy conversing with him as he speaks fluent English.
While other painters use 45 minutes – 1 hour to shabbily paint rooms in my dorm, Sully took a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes and I was impressed with his work.
Prices are based on negotiation. Sully calls a price and if you feel it’s worth it, you pay him. If not, you negotiate and agree on a price.
We had gone back and forth on the price for painting the room and I eventually got Sully to reduce his ask, but after such diligence, I just had to pay his initial ask.
I totally recommend Sully and will probably utilize his service again.
