In 2014, I put my home on the real estate market after a year of no reasonable offer, I decided to change Realtors. The new Realtor suggested up dating my kitchen. I hired Edward Goodfriend for the remodel. he did a beautiful job of painting cabinets, new hardware, new back splash and new lighting. His work was neat and efficient in a very reasonable time. After this do over my house sold in a week! So grateful for this great contractor! I'd highly recommend him. - Gail Crowley
I could not be more pleased with our newly painted kitchen cabinets. We would highly recommend Ed's work for the following reasons. First, the finished product is amazing. It looks like we have a brand new kitchen with high-end dark wood cabinets. Ed took our standard oak cabinets and made them something special. He painted a brown-black color over our existing oak cabinets (we picked the color, with input from Ed, from a batch of different black colors). He took the cabinet doors back to his shop and painted the cabinet frames in our house. We've had the kitchen a few months now and the paint is holding up great, even in places where I've accidentally dinged the cabinet by pulling something out too fast. Everyone who has seen the cabinets compliments us, and one person thought we had bought new cabinets and didn't realize that it was paint over the old ones. Second, Ed was great to work with. He promptly returned calls, showed up on time, and let us know when he had to reschedule work on one day. He and his assistant were friendly and pleasant. They left their work area clean and gave us clear instructions on when the paint would be dry, etc. I felt comfortable having him in my home. I know he doesn't often work in Scarborough, so I'm glad he was willing to come down to help us out with our kitchen. Third, Ed's price was reasonable. I did not get competing quotes because the price seemed like a good value for what we were getting and we wanted to work with Ed after seeing pictures of his previous work and meeting him in person. After seeing the finished work product I can definitely say that we got a good value considering the quality of the finished work and the easy process of working with Ed. As I mentioned above, the painted cabinets had a dramatic impact and made the kitchen feel brand new.
