John did an excellent job updating my fireplace and surrounding area. We had a general idea, but John gave us a number of suggestions and ideas to make it look exactly how we wanted. He painted and repaired our bricks and tile, installed drywall, installed and stained floating wood shelves, painted the walls, fixed a water spot on the ceiling and even got on the roof to waterproof our chimney flashing. He was always very patient and never in a hurry, always willing to make changes on the fly, and happy to discuss the project and try out different ideas. I fully recommend the Color Craftsmen.
