god i wish i could steamline reviews!

well, ive decided to stick my reviews in the blog for now... im thinking about opening up another page for reviews, proof of past customers, scans of my bonding and 2 million insurance policy, that kind of stuff. mostly because its really hard to get customers to write you more then one review in all the different stupid websites you need it to show. wish there was some streamlined way to do it... ill never get anyone, let alone everyone, to write me a review on google, yahoo local, bing local, yelp, thumbtack, AND home advisor! worked for home advisor for a lot of years, back when they where called service magic and got lots of great reviews from them but i cant take them anywhere else and because i left their network(they got SUPER expensive, all the tv ads im sure, not worth the money anymore). so here i am, wishing there was some way to set up a review system  that will populate your reviews from one location to all those guys mentioned above. if there is any techie out there that can help me solve this problem, hopefully he will need some work done to his house :) but if not i'll gladly pay for a solution

Harriet Weatherford's Southworth home review

We highly recommend Mathwig Painting Services. Both friendly and professional, they gave us a  competitive price and completed the project within a very reasonable timeframe. They brought our older home back to its former glory, solving problems as they worked such as long standing seepage and drainage issues. They also cleaned, patched and painted our tennis court. The house and the tennis court both look fabulous!
Thank you Mike and team!

Bare with me, this is still a fairly new website and im still figuring things out

still trying to figure out how to post pictures on each blog post that pertain to the post but aint figured that out yet, or how to get people to go to the "Interior Painting" and "Exterior Painting" page instead of the photos pages and those pages actually have the before and after pictures side-by-side while the photos pages are just the entire collection currently posted on the website. scared to mess with it too much for fear it will hurt my page rankings/exposure.

First Exterior Painting Project of the Year

Hi! It's Mike Mathwig with Mathwig Painting Services here to let ya know just what we have been up to in the month of february! Well to start, its been unseasonably warm here in the NorthWest even though the rest of the country is Freezing, lucky us. :D It's been so nice in fact that we decided to take on our first exterior home painting project of the year. The pictures im posting today are the pictures after removing the ivy that was attached to the house but before pressure washing. there might be a couple pictures in there after pressure washing too, i also still need to take pictures of the tennis court that we are pressure washing and painting as well. Wont be perfect "before" pictures because half the tennis court is already pressure washed. Would have took the pictures with the rest of the house but the clients were soo happy with our work that they added the tennis court mid-project. The house was a lot more work than usual because it was flaking and chipping really bad and required a lot of prep work, a TON of ivy had to be removed as well that had a huge number of scary black widow like spiders calling it home. :P Not that it was a big deal, bees and spiders are a regular part of the job when painting outside, but i tell ya, ive seen some crazy infestations in the last 5-8 years. Bees have been signifigantly worse as the summers get hotter, though only some of them are actually aggressive. spiders, ants, even things like birds and mice have been more of a problem. On Bainbridge Island there are certain areas where the nates are so bad you have to mask or shelter any doors AFTER you spray them because all the bugs fly into it before it drys lol and in belfair i painted a house that had bats soo bad that we had to not only call an exterminator twice, but also had to do some serious repairs to keep them from getting back in and messing up my paint job. Well atleast global warming worked in my favor this week :) I will post the "after" pictures sometime next week
