NYC Contractors: Painters

From the no news is good news department, it’s been a while since I’ve had to consider bringing in someone to help with a project. However, it’s about time a few things outside the house were painted professionally.

Task #1: Removing rust spots and repainting iron gate and fence.

Task #2: Sanding, re-sealing and painting the second floor deck railings.

After reviewing the “Painters – External” category on Angies list, I wasn’t able to find a company with more than one review. Then I remembered that I had used Mr. Handyman for some work in the past. A quick check on their website verified that they do paint and handle fences.

The inevitable supersizing of the project happened, only this time just as I was reading through the list (and typing this up) I started thinking of some of the other projects I’ve been meaning to get to, such as:

  • Ignore the somewhat destabilized back fence until it actually falls over
  • Install and run wires for a T.V. antenna to all apartments

Think this post is going to end here, until I call and receive the first estimate. =P
