  "My interactions with Sweet Success have been exemplary.  Chris (owner) is prompt, straight-forward, professional and extremely skilled.  His staff is the same. The paint work he did on the front porch looks exactly the same today as it did two years ago, which is flawless.  I've had bad experiences in the past with painting contractors who cut corners on the prep work in order to get the job done faster, and the results have always been disappointing.  Not so with Chris... Not only would I use Chris again, I'd also never use anyone else."

  "We have worked with Chris on multiple jobs over the last 5-10 years. He came highly recommended, and the recommendations were true to life. Chris is a master craftsman who always does his work to the highest standard. He has done both exterior and interior paint jobs for us. Chris's exterior paint job requires very little maintenance thanks to the care with which he prepared the wood for painting. 
  He is honest, and gives fair quotes. In addition, he deals with a problem at the source (replacing rotten wood rather than painting over it for example). For this reason, you have to be prepared for higher prices it simply takes longer to do a job right than to do a job badly. 
  In addition to his other good qualities, Chris is responsible, on time, and easy to work with. He takes photos and is happy to give detailed receipts. In one case we needed to work with an insurance company and we had no trouble with their response to his receipts."

  "I hired Sweet Success on three prior occasions and after my first experience with Chris Dallaba, I knew I would hire him again. Everything went well, as expected. He and his associate repaired cracks in the concrete, power washed and sealed the driveway, walkway, and steps. He power washed a bridge, removed four damaged boards and installed new pretreated 2x4s, and applied two coats of stain. Some concrete pavers in the rear were also power washed and sealed. And as a kind gesture, he power washed the front of the house and the floor of the deck at no charge."
