Progate was the first to respond to my job description on ServiceMagic, a couple of minutes after I posted it, which suggest to me that Mr. Berger and his company had a real go-getter approach to their business. He was at my home the next business day to look at the job--tiling a counter-top--and a couple of days later, the work was beautifully done and at a fair price. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a tiling contractor.

I was very pleased with the work Tamas Berger and Progate did for me, which consisted of interior painting in my apartment. The work was neat and of high quality, and was done in a timely manner. Tamas and his employees were professional, easy to deal with, and went the extra mile to make sure I was satisfied with the job, including when I made some changes along the way (e.g., changing a paint color after a coat had already been applied) and when I requested subsequent touch-ups. In addition, there were no surprises when the final bill came. I would not to hesitate to recommend them to others.

Worth every penny
by J Rupert
Tamas Berger was extremely professional and reliable. His men showed up on time, every day until the project was done. This contrasts to past experiences where workers show up one day, disappear for two days, then pop back for an hour or two later in the week. I especially liked that Tamas was easily reachable by both email, text message, and cell phone. That fact alone makes up for the fact that his estimate was not the lowest I received, but rather in the middle of the range. The quality of the work was quite good, although I was not doing anything that required fine craftsmanship. I'll definitely call Tamas again for future work."

Pros: Best Service ever

.

Very expensive.
Does not deliver on contract or verbal promises.
Does minimal job for maximum price.

My recommendation is to STAY AWAY.

Hired them to wash walls with bleach, paint, repair holes in walls, and repair chipped paint around door frame for 2 rooms, living room and kitchen. They charged $3500.00, but I thought they would do a good job, and their "Sales" front man was very accommodating and said they could accommodate every request.

I spoke with Mr. Tamas Berger about my expectations and wrote an addendum to the contract. I also requested that he use Benjamin Moore Natura paint.

When the painting was actually done, there were holes and stains left on the wall, areas left unpainted around details large chips out of plaster that had simply been painted over, large bumps on the wall where they had "filled holes." Not to mention there was paint all over things like shoes, cookware, etc. They seem to have made minimal effort to cover anything.

Additionally, for some reason they threw away some things they had taken down. I had given no such instruction, so I was left without my items such as hand painted shelves and a kitchen light fixture. Strangely, a very expensive shoe was "lost."

Regarding the very chipped door frame, they said they simply could not fix it. When I asked about the stains and the cleaning, they said they could not use bleach on a painted wall. About these and other things I asked repeatedly, "Then why did you state you could do these things in the contract?" They had no real answer.

After repeated requests to see the paint receipt saying he had purchased Natura (a non-toxic paint) he finally gave me a receipt that mysteriously had no date and no company name on it.

They did agree to come back and redo some things, which they still did not complete to the level stated in the contract or to my satisfaction considering I was paying $3500.

Tamas seems very nice and charming. He said over and over he would come back any time, even after the last visit. When my assistant called to arrange one last thing, he said it was finished, he was being harrassed, and if I did not stop he would take me to court.
