Review by

“They met my expectations with the quality of work because it was wonderful.”

Review by
08/08/2018

“I am satisfied with them because they mainly do good work and they know their trade. They are not using untrained people so you can kind of agree on what you want to be done and know it will be done right. You don't have to keep an eye on them and that's great from a consumer point of view. After the job was done we had problems with roof leakage. It wasn't clear that it was a result of what they did, it just happened to be shortly after we finished. Mark came right out and investigated and so forth. They were very responsive.”

Review by

Review by

“I communicate most frequently with Midhet or Alen when he returned to Bosnia for his father's death. both of them respond promptly and give excellent service”

Review by
09/27/2017

“They are thorough and they're experienced. They keep coming back until it's fixed, finished, and done—everything on the punch list until you're happy. They're just great to work with. They've been doing large jobs and small for me since 1993. They've done two major additions on my home and then thousands of maintenance and repair things. I use them for projects large and small and they're just great. They have a number of project managers and carpenters particularly that they employ full time and a full paint crew that they employ full time that do excellent work. And then they have a number of subs that they work with frequently enough that they can get access to those people's time when they need it. They've been vetted to make sure that they do good work. They're just great to have as part of my home maintenance plan. The house is brick but they've painted the trim several times over the years and they've painted, I think, every interior room except for the wallpaper. A+, I like them a lot. I recommend them anytime anyone asks.”

Review by
09/27/2017

“Pretty much everything made it a positive experience—the quality of the work, their availability, and their quick time response. We had a leak that leaked from the second floor down to the first that required new floors and wall boards—a restoration. They were able to do all that for me. It involved four rooms. I think I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
09/19/2017

“They're very reliable. We've used them for years and they use good quality paint. They show up on time and they do the work you want them to do and if they don't get it right, they'll come back and do what's needed. They did primarily outdoor painting. I have a rental house and I've used them for indoor painting and wall repair for that house successfully. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
09/19/2017

“They're very reliable. I liked the estimate up front, which they stuck with. Efficient in completing the work. They've done work on both the inside and outside of my house. I'd give them an A. I already have recommended them.”

Review by
09/19/2017

“We were extremely pleased. We loved all those people. They did outdoor painting primarily.”

Review by
09/15/2017

“It was great. They were timely, efficient, tidy, and concerned about any details to the job. I feel like they answered all the needs I had for that work. It was all interior painting, several rooms. I'd give them an A+, for sure. We had had bad painting prior to that—trying to cover it and do it with the right paint, they were very concerned about that so I appreciated that.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“My dad was very happy with them. They did work at my dad's house and they did work at my house. The work at my house wasn't as good as at my dad's. They made it right but I wasn't as happy as my dad was. They painted the interior and exterior of my home. I would grade them a C.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“They did an excellent job. I think they went an extra mile—I actually had to give them a little extra money out of my suggestion because they did a few extra things. The guys were very attentive, they were neat, and everything turned out great. I think there was a little disconnect with the person who quoted me on the inside of the garage versus the garage doors versus something else, a minor thing or two and they said OK we can do that. At some point I donated a bit more than the guy wanted to try to make sure everybody was feeling good about it. I'd absolutely give them an A.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“They do a good job. The last time they came out, they stained our deck. I'd give them an A. I had an appointment and they showed up when they were supposed to. I already recommended them.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“They did a great job. Very clean—left everything cleaned up. I'm very happy with what they did. They repainted our front porch, stairs, and did some work on our back deck. It was all exterior work. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“They came in when they said they would come in, they did what they said they were going to do, they charged the price they quoted me, and did a very good job with it. They did touch up work around the house. They did some work inside the house. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“They were always on time, they were very courteous, they took good care of my house, and I didn't have to do a thing—they just took over. They painted the outside of my house. They’re an A. The quality of work was wonderful. I have recommended them already.”

Review by
08/28/2017

“Excellent, mainly because the foreman was on top of everything. He was just there and knew what was going on and made sure everything thing was right. This is a 1939 house so they did a lot. I'd give them an A+. I think they did fine on punctuality.”

Review by
11/15/2016

“They painted exteriors, sealing the exterior of the hand-built Japanese joinery on my house. There was a great big, huge cypress beam that they had to put up to scaffold. They had to do a lot of work to seal it—good work. I'd say they get an A. An A for sure.”

Review by
11/15/2016

“They painted the whole house. I had them back out here and had them paint after about eight years. I'd say I was satisfied with it.”

Review by
11/15/2016

“They painted a doorway. We've used them in the past and they always do a very good job. Overall I'd give them an A.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“They've done painting along with a bunch of other stuff. They get an A. I've already recommended the company to other people.”

Review by
07/15/2016

“They were really very good and I don't have reservations about recommending them. I don't like my name and stuff being recorded, but I had a very positive experience.”

Review by
07/15/2016

“Brownlow’s done our work for 15 years, and we trust them implicitly. I’ve had a very good experience with everything they’ve done. They’re very, very good. They have keys to our house, and we travel while they’re working. We trust them .”

Review by
06/29/2016

“I’ve used them for 45 years. The founder is a wonderful man, and they do good work. They did a total renovation of my new place, including some bathroom and kitchen remodeling—A +.”

Review by
06/29/2016

“That was a long time ago. I think they do a great job, so they get an A+. They did some painting for me.”

Review by
06/29/2016

“I would give them the very highest rating—A+. They’ve done everything for me .”

Review by

“Very professional.”

Review by

“They did good.”

Review by

“Their work was excellent. I’d recommend them. They get an A+ across the board .”

Review by
06/23/2016

“I’ve used them before, and I love that they’re very accurate, very prompt, and very clean—all high praises. They deserve an A+. They did a painting job. I would recommend them .”

Review by
06/23/2016

“They painted the exterior trim on my house. They did a good job of painting the trim. They did it when they said they were going to and it all went smoothly. They deserve an A. I've already recommended the company to other people.”

Review by
06/23/2016

“They have done several things for us. They painted some rooms and also the deck we have outside. They're responsible, they do a good job, and the end product is good. They're an A+ company. I would recommend them.”

Review by
06/23/2016

“It was about a year ago. I think they painted a couple of rooms. They didn't do any bathroom or kitchen work. They were on time, they were very professional, and did excellent work. They get an A. ”

Review by
06/23/2016

“They did a great job. Outside, they painted the trim of our house and replaced some windows. They did a little bit of touch-up stuff inside, too. They did the job when they said they would do it at the price that they said they were going to do it. The quality was what we were expecting. I give them an A+. They did a great job.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They're great. I like the quality of their workmanship. They replaced two storm room windows over my garage and they came back and did a freshen-up touch-up on painting the house, exterior painting. My sister-in-law used them and I used to think that they were too expensive and it turned out that they were cheaper. I just had it in my mind that they were more expensive, but they weren't, they were cheaper. The company would get an A+ rating.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“I love to have them come and do whatever I want—they're wonderful. Their work is excellent. Most recently, they've refinished the cabinets in the kitchen, and they’ve put up two doors for me and finished them. In the past, they've refinished the bathtub, put up the safety rails, put up other doors in the living room, and painted the outside of the house at the end of last year. They will do most anything, and if they can’t, they’ve said that they think you should get someone else. I found them in Best Pick Reports; it was very helpful. The company is really nice and reliable. I would give them an A.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“Perfect—they're just great. They did what they said, they came when they said they would, they didn't leave a mess, and they painted beautifully. They painted the garage door and some exterior doors. I would give the company an A rating.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They did a great deal of work for us before we moved out of our older home. I'm very pleased with their service and with the people, and they did a wonderful job. They did outside painting and a small amount of inside planning. I would give the company an A rating.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They were excellent, and they were very professional—I would highly recommend them. They painted the side of our home. I chose them because they had one of the best estimates and I was familiar with the work from other areas. I would give the company an A rating.”

Review by
07/08/2015

“They've been working for my daughter. They're all good. They're always available, and they do painting for me. We've used them for ten years. I would give Brownlow & Sons an A rating.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They're excellent. They painted the inside of my house, added some electrical outlets, and just checked the overall house for me. They're very good, very dependable, and very reliable. I would give Brownlow & Sons an A rating.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“Brownlow & Sons did indoor painting for me. They were detailed. They actually taped off and painted the edges instead of just doing guesswork. The painter did a good job of a two-toned paint job that no one else could do. I’d grade them as an A.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“Their price was a little high, but everything that they did was properly done. They painted our house twice, they've done a lot of things here. I would give the company an A rating, for excellent.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They're there every day, and they seem to bring in a big enough team to get it done on time. I think that's the biggest difference between them and some other folks we've used over the years. The superintendent that was responsible for our job really knew what he was doing, and he was personable. It was home remodeling—they redid the bathrooms, replaced the siding on the outside of the house, painted inside and out, and refinished the floors. I found them through a friend of mine who had used them for one of his houses. They’re an A.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“They showed up when they said they were going to, and because of the quality of their work and the care that they put into it, they are the only people we use. We were moving into a new house, and they were repainting the whole inside and making a few changes—adding some hardwood floors which absolutely match perfectly. The care that they took all the way around was absolutely fantastic. I found about them through their reputation; they've been around forever. I would rate the company an A.”

Review by
07/06/2015

“I liked that they were highly competent and highly responsive. They take great care of their product, and they're very good people. We live in a brick home, but it has a whole lot of trim on it, so they redid all of the trim. I found about them because of their general reputation. They deserve an A.”

Review by
08/27/2014

“I’m sorry to say that I did not have a positive experience. They did 2 jobs for me. The first job went very well. That was the painting, but a second job of renovating the bathroom did not go well. There were several mistakes made that compounded one on top of each other. In the end everything did get fixed so that was good but the experience was not good. I found out about them from Home Reports. I'd give them a B. It was good work but I had an issue with the service. I would hesitate to recommend the company to a friend or neighbor.”

Review by
08/26/2014

“One, we needed to have the exterior of the house but we had a good bit of wood damage over the years that moisture had gotten into with damage so they had to do a lot of replacement there. We got a gutter exchanged off of the back and put a larger gutter where we were having some overflow issues there. We got that put on. We got all of it painted up and it looked great when it got done. They’ve always done the same type of work over the years. They just have a great reputation. I'd give them an A+. They do some high-end residential construction of all kinds. They are a full-service operation. We just happen to be working predominantly with the painting guys but they do some nice renovation work.”

Review by
08/26/2014

“I have been using them to paint my house. They do high quality work. I’ve used them a few times in the past, and I always know what I’m getting. They clean up after themselves, and it is good quality service. I heard about them through Best Pick Reports. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
08/26/2014

“I had them do exterior painting on the house, and they did a good job. They offered me an attractive bid relative to three other companies I talked to; that came through, and they had a supervisor that did an especially good job. I heard about them through Best Pick Reports, and we’ve been with them for a long, long time. I would recommend them highly—A.”

Review by
08/26/2014

“They did external painting and repair work for some rotted wood and doorjambs. They cleaned up after themselves, and they generally gave us good customer service. I heard about them through another company that we used. They did a good job—A+.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“They did interior painting. It was a pretty big job, and they got it done pretty quickly. It took about a week. They did a quality job, too. We liked the people—they had good, good personnel. I would recommend them. They did A-grade work.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“Brownlow & Sons was great. They did some painting, repaired some wood, and did some interior drywall repair. I used them about five years ago, and they were great, so I called them again just recently. I'd definitely give them an A.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“I had the outside of my house painted. It was good. I would recommend Brownlow & Sons to any friends who needed any sort of remodeling work done. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“They painted all the exterior of our house. I heard about them through a friend, and I'd say it was an A-rate experience—we didn't have any problems with them.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“We have used them before, and they were just as good as I remembered. They repainted the entire interior of our home, and they did some work on refinishing the deck and some touchup work on the outside of the house. I think they were there three or four weeks in total. When we got it done, we put the house on the market, and the house has been sold, so I assume the work is still fine. It looked great when we sold it. I’d rate them an A.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“It was basically just replacing some windows that the seal had broken on them and everything. It wasn’t really a true remodeling job. They ended up replacing 3 windows and painting the trim work and everything like that. I would say it was a very positive experience customer service-wise and everything. I had used them before and that’s how I heard about them. I would use them again. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“They came to the house. They did pretty good work. If I had to give them an A to F rating, I’d probably give them a B+. I found Brownlow in one of the Home Reports books. The painting was exterior. I would recommend them to friends and neighbors depending on the job. I don’t think that they're great with detail work but they're probably good with broader kinds of jobs. They did a pretty good job, they just didn’t do a great job. They were a little messy in places and stuff like that. I might recommend them to others depending on the job.”

Review by
08/19/2014

“It was wonderful. All of our painting was exterior—they painted the deck and all the trim. We were very pleased, and we would have them again if we needed anything. Everybody we dealt with could not have been nicer. We remember the guy that first came to see us and talk to us about everything; he was a great guy, and he told us everything about what we were trying to do and how they would proceed. I think they’re an A company—our experience was very good.”

Review by
05/05/2014

“I had the interior and exterior of my house painted by Brownlow & Sons, and they did a spectacular job. They were just so nice and such experts at what they did. I didn’t know I had wood rot in a couple of places, but they found it and took care of it. They were really great—A+.”

Review by
04/24/2014

“Brownlow & Sons was great. We were extremely happy with them. They installed a backsplash in our kitchen, refinished the countertops to make them look new, and painted the whole inside of the house. The gentlemen were very courteous—they were among the best workmen we’ve ever used. They were fantastic. We’d give them an A+.”

Review by
04/10/2014

“We used Brownlow & Sons because they had done some work for us before, and it has held up great. They redid the kitchen and painted the hallway and the upstairs. The workers were great—they didn't mismeasure, they didn't mess up anything in the house, and they made sure that we were happy with what they had done. I would give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
04/02/2014

“Brownlow & Sons painted the carport and the posts on the porch, and they did a lot of interior work. They painted my kitchen cupboards after other painters told me they couldn’t be painted. They’re beautiful. I’d definitely give them an A.”

Review by
08/14/2013

“We had water damage in the basement, and they did drywall repair and pulled down old wallpaper. They were responsive and responsible, and the room looks great. I would give them an A.”

Review by
08/14/2013

“Brownlow did exterior painting. They took off the rotten wood, painted the whole house, and replaced my gutters for me. It looked really good when they got finished. I’ve always had positive experiences with Brownlow, and the guys are really nice. They get an A+. They did an excellent job.”

Review by
08/13/2013

“They were good and timely; they came when they were supposed to come. They did a good job. They painted the inside of my condominium. They were good painters. On a scale of one to ten, I found better painters for when I moved, but I would have given them an eight; I would give them an A. If a friend asked me for a recommendation, I would say to use them. I got a referral to them from someone who said they used them.”

Review by
08/13/2013

“I had some exterior trim painting done, and it went pretty well. The weather didn't really cooperate, but that's not their fault. They did what they said they were going to do. Their communication could have been a little better, but when I asked questions, they answered them. They just weren't necessarily always upfront with information—like how long it was going to take. The work is good and all that. I would probably give them a B. It was just communication that they could have done a little better with.”

Review by
08/13/2013

“They ended up taking care of some company work and just painting the outside. I thought they were very professional. If a friend asked me for a recommendation, I would say they were expensive, but they may be worth it. I had a couple companies in mind, initially; I don't remember why the other ones fell out. In fact, I started back last October, and they told me they would start in November. Then, when I told them we were going out of town in December, they finally got started in December and didn't finish until January. They didn't finish my front door until a couple months later because it got too cold to do it, so it struggled on for quite a while. They would probably get between an A and a high B—the A- area.”

Review by
08/13/2013

“Brownlow did interior painting, and they did an astounding job. They did incredible work. It was on time and well done. I have absolutely no complaints with that company. Every time I hire them, I have a positive experience. I’d give them an A+.”

Review by
08/12/2013

“Brownlow & Sons did a fantastic job. They ended up doing a lot of painting and some interior repair work for me. What stands out about them is just the fact that they did what they said they were going to do—when and how they were going to do it. They had painted my house about five years before, and I was very impressed with the way they did the work. They've come out and helped me a couple of times when I needed small things done, and that all stood out in my mind as their being a very reliable contractor. They were not the cheapest, but they had the best proposal, as far as I was concerned. I would give them an A+. As a matter of fact, I found them through Home Reports six or seven years ago. I would say—from that standpoint—the material in that publication is good, and I'll continue, on occasion, to at least refer to it. I've recommended Brownlow to a number of people, and they've all gone and followed it.”

Review by
08/12/2013

“They repaired a leak in the drywall in the ceiling, and then repainted it. Their customer service stands out and just the fact that they really take time to listen and relate to you; they're very trustworthy. I would probably give them an A- or B+ right now because I think the people and the customer service were wonderful, but I think they could have been a little more meticulous on the work that was done. I think there are some spots—now I've noticed—that really aren't perfect. But I'm actually going to be calling them to come back and do some more, so I can talk to them about that when I see them.”

Review by
08/12/2013

“Everything went OK. They painted the outside of my house; they were very professional. They handled things. They were very clean in everything that they did. They were on time, in spite of the weather; it was not helping them. I think they did a good job. I chose them because they have been working in the neighborhood for quite a long time, and everybody has a good experience with them. I would give them an A for excellent; we don't have any complaints.”

Review by
08/12/2013

“Brownlow & Sons pressure washed and then painted the trim on our house. I thought the guy that was in charge kept me informed on what was going on and seemed to be in control of what was going on with his guys. They are very attentive to detail. They may not be the cheapest quote you get, but you know they're going to fix stuff as it goes on, and they're not going to nickel and dime you, which I thought was really nice. I would give them an A grade.”

“Brownlow & Sons did some work for me last October. It went pretty good. I had to get them back to do a few things but they came back and made it right. They did some rotten wood on my windows and then they sealed and painted the cracks in my siding. They fixed a couple other pieces of rotten wood. My experience with them was positive. They did a decent job. It was almost an A but they came back and fixed it. I would give them a B or B+.”

“Brownlow & Sons painted the outside of my house and a few rooms on the inside. It was superlative work. They believe in doing things the right way the first time, and that’s what I like. The painters and carpenters were excellent. Everything was just wonderful. I’d give them an A+++.”

“They did a great job for me. They painted the exterior of my house. I got my usual three bids, and they were right in the middle. Also, a couple of them live in my neighborhood, so I know of them and their reputations. Everything turned out fine—very good. I'd rate them an A+.”

“I used Brownlow & Sons. It was not necessarily a positive experience; it was kind of neutral. We had them do a lot of wood replacement—taking trim off, replacing it, and painting it. It was a lot of carpentry. That part was actually good; it was the detail in the painting that wasn't so hot. They got paint on the break, and it was kind of sloppy around the windows. They had to repair some glazing and stuff. They just did it, and already, some is popping and cracking. Based on what I've had done by other companies in the past, it's not great. I probably wouldn't recommend them. The carpentry part was fine, I think; that's hard to do, and it's expensive. It's probably hard to find people that are skilled enough to handle some of that. That was all right, and I could recommend them from that standpoint. I think they were the first one in the Home Reports book, but I think they deserve about a C+. Mine was not a simple painting job, though; I had a lot more repair work that had to be done. In terms of rating a painter, it's hard to say because, really, the bulk of their work was more repair type stuff. They just painted trim because my house is mostly brick.”

“We used Brownlow & Sons on the painting and deck stuff for us, and they're an A. They did both painting and decks. They repaired the deck and did a lot of other things around the house, and then, they painted the house and deck. They did an awful lot for us—a huge job, thousands. They were very neat and very prompt, and they were the lowest bid. Brownlow did my gutters, too.”
