I am very impressed, and I am planning on using them again in the near future. We had some ceiling damage, so they did a little bit of plasterwork and painting in our master bedroom. Now, I want to change the color. I think they maybe did a couple of touch-ups in the house. I liked them, and I'm a perfectionist. They were just at a different level than most painters, and they were extremely knowledgeable. This is a 1926 house, and there are so many different things going on in it. They just picked up on all of it, and the communication, the cleanliness, and everything was outstanding. They're A+.
There wasn't anything I didn't like. They were good. They did a beautiful job, and I trusted them in my house. It was all interior work. I chose them based on a referral from somebody else. They get an A+ from me.
They did exterior painting. They painted the whole house, and two years ago, they came back and did a cleanup. It was not a full painting—just a touch-up. They do an excellent job, and their quality is superb. They've worked here before, and they're great. They get an A+ for their work.
I would give Painting in Partnerships a grade of A. They did work for me last year and this year. They painted the interior and exterior of my home. They do excellent work. They're prompt and reliable, and they listen and offer suggestions for paint colors. They're just very good.
I had to put new cedar siding on my house, and they stained and painted the whole thing. They were neat, prompt, and conscientious, and the owner was very accommodating. I would recommend them highly. I'd give them an A.
They were experienced, and they did what they were supposed to do. They did a hallway. I would say that they are an A-grade company.
Mario had good follow-up. They did windows. I chose Painting in Partnerships because Mario was consistent in his contact with me. I would give them an A.
We've used them many times before, and we're very happy with their support and service. The most recent work was more trim work. It was just a few areas—nothing major. They're very professional, and they do good, quality work on time. They did not have to come and fix anything afterward. I'd say that they should get an A grade.
They did interior work in two rooms. I would give Painting in Partnerships an A-.
I am very impressed with Painting in Partnerships, and I am planning on using them again in the near future. We had some ceiling damage, so they did a little plaster work and painting in our master bedroom as well as a couple of other touch-ups in the house. I'm a perfectionist, and I liked them. They were just at a different level than most painters, and they were extremely knowledgeable. Everything was outstanding. They're A+.
