Client Comments:

Perfection comes at a price, and those who seek perfection in color-matching and decorative finishes tell us Hester Decorating fills the "bill."A large firm, it has the specialist expertise for a full range of decorative painting techniques including faux finishes, marbleizing, wood graining and gold leafing, and it also applies Venetian plaster and wallpaper. Its wood graining and color matching earn special praise. Custom color formulas are created on site in order to perfectly match the clients' requests, even though the project manager's perfectionism may occasionally try their patience. The firm's painters' talent for wood graining is, one customer insists, "flawless."Four "Picture It Painted Professionally"awards from the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America attest to Hester Decorating's artistry. Clients say the quality is matched by superb service, professional conduct and efficiency. While acknowledging that this level of work comes at a high price, they conclude that Hester's projects are worth the extra dollars.
