People Say The Nicest Things
  • 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 realitor 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. - Testimonial from Angie's List

  • "Ed starts, and most importantly, finished his projects with integrity and excellence. He's far beyond your local trustworthy refurbishing and construction expert! He'll far exceed your expectations." - C. Hale

  • "The house looks FABULOUS! You were a pleasure to work with - thoughtful and courteous to boot. We are so thrilled with the outcome - it surpasses both of our hopes. Your workmanship is 1st class - highly professional - and you deliver on your promises." - P Harris & D Silverman

  • "Ed arrived right on time and began immediately to prepare our house for painting. He pressure washed, sanded, primed and rebuilt/repaired/replaced any rotten wood prior to painting. He made sure everything was completely covered to avoid getting paint in unwanted areas. He painted our exterior trim to match the existing color. He knew we were selling the house, so he kept an eye out for little things and looked at it from a buyer's perspective, keeping in mind the expense involved." - Testimonial from Angie's List

  • "Our camp needed more sitting, sleeping and storage space. In no time at all, Ed had made an awesome day bed that met all of our needs-and now it's everyone's favorite." - A. Rennie

  • "We liked the fact that Ed gave us options and choices and was happy to do countless paint samples. The end result was simply stunning." - A. Hicks

  • Angies List 2013 Super Service Award"From the beginning, Ed has been very precise in his preparation and meticulous in his craftsmanship. He has taken extra care to protect all our belongings in each work area. A non-smoker, he did not take breaks or waste time, he just works. He is a soft spoken man who has been honest in his dealing with us, even pointing out items which really did not need fixing in order to save us money. He always arrived at our home with a smile on his face and maintained good humor in spite of our dogs badgering him to play.He even brought treats for them. My husband wanted to know where he'd been hiding all these years... We just recommend him very highly." - Testimonial from Angie's List
