Once again, thank you."

"Eli's business is aptly named, as he truly is "The Paint Machine."  Wow!  Not only does Eli know his business (color sense, prep, product, and application), but he is efficient, fast, and courteous. He showed up as scheduled and took care of everything on our exterior paint job that included taking down and painting our gutters. We had a few special concerns and requests - Eli assured us that was just part of the job and he would take care of it - and he did, as if it were no big deal. Our overabundance of exterior plants were carefully wrapped and no damage was done whatsoever. On top of it all, Eli is one very nice person. And he liked our cat and home-baked cookies. We highly, highly recommend Eli."

Letter of Recommendation for The Paint Machine:

"Eli Pugh, as owner and operator of The Paint Machine, just completed the painting of my home in Shelton, Washington. It is a one story with a detached 3-car garage. The experience from start to finish was professional, timely, and pleasant.

Eli came out personally to review the project prior to bidding the job. He was professional, yet friendly, in his approach to the project. He was on time, looked the part of a professional painter, comprehensive in his questioning, and made some appropriate suggestions. He took detailed notes and listened carefully to our expectations. Within a couple of days I had a bid via an e-mail detailing the process, products to be used and the timeframe. Interesting, I had three other bidders and his was the best bid. I decided that I would investigate further and made some phone calls. The references were outstanding. I decided to invite Eli out to check the project again so he could review his bid with me and I could ask more questions. We walked the project and I added two other elements to the project which he said would increase the bid by a minimal amount. He was correct. A revised and very reasonable bid noting the changes came a day or so later. I selected Eli and we talked about the time to start.

Eli arrived on time the first day and went immediately to work. He was careful around our landscaping, taped all the areas not to be painted, and went to work. He was efficient, organized, and careful in his craft. Eli made a suggestion to use a solid-body stain on the weathered garage doors. I was hesitant at first, but agreed. What a great suggestion he made. The doors look new after thirty years.  He took four days to complete the project and came back the next day to walk to project with me and do some very minor touch-up. The house looked great.   

Not only did I get a very professional paint job, but also Eli was very pleasant to deal with.  He took his time to understand what I wanted and more than met my expectation. I have personally recommended him to others and tentatively scheduled him to paint my other home in Shelton next year. I recommend The Paint Machine very highly and without reservation."
