Hi Karody, I live in Belleville and we chatted in the forums a few months back about window shutters. I was hoping to chat with you again as I would love to hear your thoughts on painting contractors in Salina. We can't find anybody in our area to paint our rather difficult and tall Victorian. But I have no knowledge of who's good in Salina. Would love to hear back. Thanks!
