    We had a company in previously to repair water damage from Hurricane Irene that really took advantage of me and treated me very rudely. They didn't do what was agreed upon and didn't do a good job with what they did. Jimmy came in really helped me out. He gave me a fantastic itemized estimate that he stuck to. He was very nice and gracious through the whole thing. He was also very concerned about my physical health throughout the process. His crew was the same; they were wonderful people to have around the house. They were polite and nice people to have around. They did a beautiful job. He's very honest. He was also really helpful in choosing colors.

    Dear Jimmy, Managing a 55,000 sq. ft. facility is not easy and that is why I hire contractors that I trust and are fair. You fit that description perfectly. I have hired and worked with a lot of contractors as the principal of a construction company and also as the Finance and Administration Director here at the YMCA. When l hired J. Canabe's Painting in August 2008 to paint areas of the YMCA, all I knew was that your bid on the work was the best I had received. By the completion of that first project, I knew I had found the painting company that I would be using for all my painting needs. Your crew worked clean and fast with terrific results, your prices continue to be fair, and your willingness to satisfy our needs is just what I look for in a contractor. That is why I again hired J. Canabe's Painting in 2009 to repair and paint the locker rooms, member lobbies and day care areas of the YMCA. and why I will continue to use J. Canabe's in the future. I look forward to working with you in the future.

    Working with Jimmy and his team was great. They worked quickly and meticulously. I really appreciated that they used quality paint, were flexible and did what they needed to do scheduling-wise to accommodate my timing as well as working around other contractors. The transformation of my house was amazing- and they clearly understand working on older homes. They made a couple of pretty ancient-looking bathrooms look 100% better and their attention to detail was great. For me to see Jimmy himself come back repeatedly to point out even the smallest flaw for his team to correct was reassuring and impressive. Especially now, after more experience with different vendors, I can truly appreciate the honesty and great work ethic of the J. Canabe team.

    They showed up as planned. Everything in the area to be painted was covered with drop cloths (clean!) and it was sealed off so that the dust from the spackle sanding didn't permeate the house. The walls were well prepped and the painting was neat, and smooth. The painter was polite. courteous and professional - and the owner showed up with a box of Godiva chocolates for me part way through the day to help relieve the stress of moving!! A thoroughly delightful experience ...
