Testimonials
"WE RECENTLY HAD OUR DECK POWERWASHED AND PAINTED BY PHIL O'HARA OF DUN RITE PAINTING, AND WE ARE MORE THAN PLEASED WITH THE JOB HE DID FOR US. WE FEEL CONFIDENT IN RECOMMENDING PHIL FOR ANY PAINTING JOB YOU MIGHT BE CONSIDERING. OUR DECK HAD BEEN INEXPERTLY PAINTED, THEN ROUGHLY POWERWASHED, BY THE PREVIOUS OWNERS OF OUR HOUSE, AND WE FEARED THAT IT MIGHT BE DIFFICULT, IF NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO RESTORE. SOME PAINT WAS FLAKING OFF, SOME WAS STUBBORNLY STICKING, AND THE OVERALL APPEARANCE WAS SHABBY. PHIL'S PROFESSIONAL ADVICE, ALONG WITH HIS EXCE PHIL IS INTELLIGENT, HONEST, CONSCIENTIOUS AND DEDICATED INDIVIDUALLLENT SKILLS, ATTENTION TO DETAIL, AND YEARS OF EXPERIENCE PAID OFF, AND THE RESULT IS A DECK THAT LOOKS PRACTICALLY BRAND NEW. PHIL GUARANTEES HIS WORK, SO HE IS VERY CAREFUL ABOUT THE PREP WORK, THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF THE SURFACE TO BE PAINTED, AND THE WEATHER CONDITIONS. THIS EXTRA CARE SHOWS IN THE FINISHED PRODUCT. HE WORKS EFFCIENTLY AND QUICKLY, WHICH IS NICE WHEN YOUR PAYING BY THE HOUR, YET HE IS CAREFUL AND TAKES PRIDE IN HIS WORK. AS AN ADDED BONUS, WHEN PHIL LEAVES EVERYTHING IS CLEANED UP: NO SPLASHES, NO DRIPS, NO MESS. WE WILL CONTACT PHIL WHEN IT'S TIME FOR OUR NEXT PAINTING PROJECT. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM, WITH NO RESERVATIONS."

"WE HIRED MR. PHIL O'HARA OF DUN RITE PAINTING TO PAINT THE INTERIOR OF OUR HOME. IT IS INDEED A PLEASURE FOR ME TO WRITE THIS LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION. PHIL WAS ALWAYS PUNCTUAL, CHEERFUL, AND HAD AN OVERWHELMING DESIRE TO PLEASE THE HOMEOWNER WITH HIS WORK. HE WORKED EXPEDITIOUDLY, CAREFULLY, AND PAID GREAT ATTENTION TO DETAIL; ALWAYS TRYING TO MAKE THE FINAL PRODUCT AS CLOSE TO PERFECT AS POSSIBLE. PHIL'S KNOWLEDGE OF DRYWALL REPAIR, WALLPAPER REMOVAL, AND VARIOUS TYPE OF PAINT APPLICATIONS WAS INVALUABLE WITH OUR PROJECT IN ORDER TO GET THE PERFECT FINAL LOOK. OUR HOUSE HAD ALL OF THESE CHALLENGES AND PHIL USED HIS EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE TO SOLVE MANY PROBLEMS. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, WAS HIS CONCERN FOR OUR POSSESSIONS WHILE HE WAS WORKING, HIS CLEANLINESS AFTER THE DAY'S WORK WAS COMPLETE, AND HE UNDERSTOOD THE INTRUTION A CONTRACTOR CAN HAVE ON THE LIFE OF THE HOMEOWNER SO HE MADE EVERY EFFORT TO MAKE THIS INTRUTION AS MINIMAL AS POSSIBLE. WE HAVE HAD MANY PAINTERS AT OUR HOME BUT BY FAR PHIL HAS BEEN THE BEST. WHEN YOU HIRE PHIL TO DO YOUR JOB IT WILL BE DONE WELL, IN A TIMELY MANNER, WITH GREST ATTENTION TO DETAIL, AND ALWAYS WITH A SMILE!"

"WE WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE WITH YOU OUR EXPERIENCE WITH PHIL O'HARA, DUN RITE PAINTING. WE HAVE DONE BUSINESS WITH NORTHWOOD PAINT ON SOUTH AIRPORT ROAD IN THE PAST AND REGARD THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF PAINT AND PAINTING PRODUCTS VERY HIGHLY. WE BECAME ACQUAINTED WITH MR. O'HARA THROUGH NORTHWOOD'S RECOMMENDATION. HE CAME VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. UPON MEETING PHIL AND GREG MARTIN FROM NORTHWOOD PAINTS WE WENT DIRECTLY TO OUR COTTAGE WHERE MR. O'HARA INSPECTED THE CONDITION OF OUR LOG SIDING AND RECOMMENDED THAT WE HAVE THE STAIN REDONE. PHIL WAS VERY COMPLETE IN HIS EVALUATION OF THINGS AND ASSURED US OF HIS SKILLS THAT WERE NEEDED, THAT HE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO DO AND TOLD US HOW HE WOULD DO EACH STEP. HE WAS DETAILED ABOUT THINGS IN A WAY THAT GAVE US CONFIDENCE THAT WE WERE DOING THE RIGHT THING BY HIRING HIM. HE WAS VERY KNOWLEDGABLE ABOUT HIS TRADE, AND HIS PERSONALITY WAS EASY TO MAKE HIM LIKEABLE. PHIL AND I SAT DOWN AND TALKED ABOUT THE JOB AND HE DREW UP A CONTRACT, SIMPLE AND EAY TO READ. I ASKED PHIL QUESTIONS THAT WERE STARIGHT FORWARD AND TO THE POINT ABOUT THINGS THAT CONCERNED ME, AND HE WAS GREAT, AND NOT OFFENDED BY MY QUESTIONS. PHIL STARTED THE JOB WHEN THE WEATHER BROKE AND WE WERE FORTUNATE THAT WE HAD GOOD WEATHER IN MARCH. TEN DAYS LATER OUR JOB WAS DONE, FROM POWER WASHING TO CAULKING, TO SANDING, TO STAINING. THE JOB WAS BEAUTIFUL AND IT WAS A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH PHIL. I HAVE NEVER MET A PERSON MORE PROUD OF THE WORK THEY DO OR ONE WHO TAKES MORE PRIDE IN DOING THINGS RIGHT AND GOING BEYOND THE AVERAGE EXPECTATIONS OF THE CUSTOMER TO PLEASE HIS CLIENTS. HELEN AND I CAN TRULY RECOMMEND PHIL O'HARA TO ANYONE ANYWHERE OF ANY MEANS. TO DO THE WORK HE DOES AND KNOW HE WILL DO IT RIGHT AND MAKE A FRIEND OF THE CUSTOMER AS WELL. THANKS PHIL FOR A GREAT JOB AND YOU SURE WILL BE OUR PAINTER NEXT TIME FOR SURE!!"

"Dun Rite Painting was working on our neighbors house. After observing the excellent job they did and how hard they worked, we hired Phil O'Hara. We had painting, staining of decks, docks, and railings, plus our siding power-washed. Our home has never looked so good. We highly recommend Dun Rite Painting. Phil is very particular and takes care of all the little details. We appreciate the fact that when they started the job they stayed with it until it was finished and did not leave us for other jobs. Besides being the very best, the cost was fair for all the hard work that took place and the quality of the products. We will use Dun Rite Painting in the future because of the quality work and besides Phil is a delight to work with. Thank you Phil. We have gotten so many compliments and we are very happy."

"After purchasing our log home in the woods of Kalkaska County, we determined that a new coat of sealer was called for. Reading Phil's packet of letters of recommendation, we were wowed and looking forward to working with a true professional. Phil did not let us down. Beginning with the power washing he did, Phil showed us top notch work and service. The stain color was exactly what we desired and he was careful and thorogh, ensuring no "drippage" on the foundation or patio. The before and after pictures are astounding. We couldn't be more satisfied with the finished product. Not only do we recommend Phil for others, but we would certainlt use him again."

"To anyone that needs a great painter!
It took a very long time but we have finally found a reliable, professional, qualified painter for all of our remodel jobs. After trying several other painters, it was a breath of fresh air working with Phil O'Hara. Not only did he give us a fair and quick estimate, he completed the job on time and I didn't need to wonder if he was going to show up the next day. He was extremely dependable and very thoughtful of leaving the jobsite perfectly clean when he left for the day. He is highly professional and the quality of his work is awesome. I can't even begin to tell you how happy we are to have found Phil for our painting needs. We will definitely use his services again for our next project."
Sincerely,
