Another Angie’s List Award Winning Year – Thank You

O’Connor’s Painting Service Earns Esteemed 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award

Award reflects company’s consistently high level of customer service

O’Connor’s Painting Service has earned the home service industry’s coveted Angie’s List Super Service Award, reflecting an exemplary year of customer service to members of the local services marketplace and consumer review site in 2016.

This achievement is particularly significant as Angie’s List experienced unpreceden2016angies-ssa_webcolor528pxted member growth in 2016. More than 1.6 million consumers, many of whom were eager to quickly hire highly qualified service pros, joined Angie’s List after the company added a new, free membership tier.

“Companies that can meet higher demands without missing a beat in their exemplary performance standards truly do stand apart from their peers,” said Angie’s List Founder Angie Hicks. “Only a fraction of the residential painting companies in Montgomery County, MD were able to do it.”

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2016 winners have met strict eligibility requirements, which include an “A” rating in overall grade, recent grade, and review period grade. The SSA winners must also be in good standing with Angie’s List, pass a background check and abide by Angie’s List operational guidelines.

 “I just want to thank all of our customers for again voting us 2016 Angie’s List Super Service Award. When I started this company, my main mission was to provide a great service and quality work. Thank you for all your letters of support in achieving our company goals with this prestigious award,”

David O’Connor, President.

Service company ratings are updated daily on Angie’s List as new, verified consumer reviews are submitted. Companies are graded on an A through F scale in areas ranging from price to professionalism to punctuality.

For more than 21 years, Angie’s List restricted access to its verified reviews to consumers who paid membership fees. When the company removed that barrier, some companies worried that the new, non-paying members would not be as engaged as members of the past. Experience has shown, however, that these newly added members are just as engaged – across all age groups – as prior members. Also, because the company continues to adhere to its review verification process, there has been no degradation of review quality.

“The biggest change at Angie’s List is that we are connecting even more consumers to high quality service professionals,” Hicks said. “And that’s good for everyone.”

Why Consumer’s Checkbook in the Washington DC Area is a Great Way to find a Painting Contractor

Locating a competent professional for your home improvement project can be a shot in the dark. You might call a few listings in the phone book, randomly picking names, hoping you are choosing a reputable company. There are plenty of “so-called” professional painters out there that are more than happy to take your money and run and if you have problems with the job, you can never find them again.

A good way to start your hunt for a trustworthy interior or exterior painter is to join Consumers’ Checkbook, a non-profit organization that ranks service providers. Go to www.checkbook.org.  It cost $34 basic subscription to join for two years.  If you have home improvement projects and you need to check on the reputation of a contractor you can search companies by trade at their website to see how each are rated by other Checkbook members. Consumers’ Checkbook is like asking your friends and neighbors for referrals.

Our company, O’Connor’s Painting Service, Inc. has a 95% approval rating by Consumer Checkbook members.  We provide quality work, dependable service and a fair price.  Over the long run, you end up paying less because our jobs outlast most standard paint jobs.

I do caution you to always call the Maryland Home Improvement Commission at 410-230-6309 to be sure the contractor you are looking to hire is fully insured with workers compensation and liability insurance.  Be sure to meet with the contractor in person to get a sense of who you are working with.  Is this someone you would trust in your home? At O’Connor’s Painting Service, all of our employees have been background checked and drug tested.

Happy New Year

Goshen Enterprises

I am frequently asked for referrals for other services in the area. I would like to introduce Goshen Enterprises, a company whom we have known and trusted for many years. If you are considering any Spring landscape projects, they may be of help. Goshen has been in business for over 23 Exterior Landscapingyears. They are a trustworthy company which is licensed and insured as all good businesses should be. They are a full service landscaping company offering design, install and maintenance services.

Personally I have used Goshen Enterprises for mulching, trimming and weeding. My experience has been very positive. Goshen workers were prompt, friendly, precise and did a great landscaping job at my home. My neighbors have also used their service as well and I have no hesitation referring them out when people ask me for landscaping references.

I know how important it is for my customers to receive not only quality painting service but quality work for all services performed at your home. We will let you know of other contractors that meet our high standards of value and trust in the future.
