A selection of 156 homeowner reviews:
“They were great. They were all very professional and perfect gentlemen, and the crew head was stunning. They painted three rooms and two decks, and they did a wonderful job. They made these rooms look beautiful. In every possible way, they went above and beyond. I'd give them an A+.”
“I think they were fantastic. They were very quick. They were super clean. I had wood floors that were freshly done, and they painted the base molding, door frames, trim, and everything. I couldn't even tell they were there other than that the walls were fantastic. Overall, I'd rate them A. The quality was superb.”
“They did external painting. I liked their attention to detail and conscientiousness. They did exactly what they said they'd do in the right amount of time and were highly professional. They're an A. They did an excellent job. I'd recommend them to anyone.”
“I am an interior designer, and I've painted over 800 jobs with him. Everything was a positive experience. I've worked with them for almost 30 years, since the first year they opened, and I was on two jobsites with their painters today. Last year, over at my own home, they did ironwork. They repaired and restored my historic thresholds on the front and the back of my house, which are wooden and original to the 1893 structure. They also repaired the back of my garage. They replaced some of the wood that was starting to fail and repainted everything. They've done the interior and exterior of my house. I'd give them an A+ grade. There's no one else on the marketplace like these guys. They have a painter for every job. If there's a job that involves carpentry, along with the painting, they have a crew for that. They look for the people with their strengths, and then they put the crew chiefs who are appropriate for that job. They're great at communicating. They're terrific. They've been a real godsend for me. I met them the first year they were in business, and I've never used another painter, or another commercial painter, other than a Tech painter.”
“They were good. It was about a year ago. They did an exterior paint job because some paint was crumbling. The house was in an historic district near the capitol. The historical society here is crazy, and it's got to be done absolutely perfectly or they will fine you. It'd have to be done so, and it had to be done with consideration for the fact the house was old enough that it could have had lead paint. They took care of it. It was very smooth, and there were no issues. It was an A.”
“They painted the exterior and interior of my home. It was A+ work.”
“They painted the exterior of my home, and that's the third time they've done it. They're very good. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did painting, inside and out. They're professional, clean, and punctual. They deserve an A+.”
“Overall, they were good.”
“They were great. They were good.”
