“Brownlow & Sons was wonderful—A+++. They painted my window frames and the gutters. It's perfect. The crew was very present, very personable, and professional. The detail of their work is perfect. They get an A+ in every area.”
“I've been doing business with them for 20 years. They provided a great level of service and personal attention. They did painting, general repairs, and roof repair. They're just an excellent company overall. I'd give them an A+.”
“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.”
“Their work was great. They're easy to work with, they're responsive, and their quality of work was excellent. Brownlow gets an A+ from me.”
“They've done a lot. They have done painting for us. They've repaired windowsills and several times, we've had ceiling leaks that came from the roof or the air conditioner in the attic. The drywall was getting ready to fall apart and they that, repainted it, and made it all look very nice. They're good at working with older houses. We have an antique house. The carpenter and people who have done the masonry work—putting in the new drywall and stuff—have been very particular about details and making sure they do a good job about matching stuff. I've been very pleased with their work. The detail work is good. I rate my overall experience as an A+. The only thing I can even possibly think of is that one time a little paint dripped somewhere, but they cleaned it up immediately. So that's really not a reason to not give them an A+ on service. They've done a very outstanding job. They've always followed up. We've had two places where the roof was leaking and they've repaired both of them. They've done a very good job in multiple different areas. I'd recommend the company.”
“They've done several things. They done inside painting, roof work, garage ceiling repair, and some gutter work. I think probably the most recent work was the roof and the garage. I like that they are extremely professional. You get a firm quote in advance, there's a lot of good follow-up, and the workers are very professional. They're A+. I already have recommended them.”
“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.”
“They painted the outside and put new gutters on. They did really good work. They're an A+ company.”
“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.”
“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.”
“That was a long time ago. I think they do a great job, so they get an A+. They did some painting for me.”
“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.”
“They've done painting along with a bunch of other stuff. They get an A. I've already recommended the company to other people.”
“Brownlow 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.”
“They painted exteriors and sealed the exterior of the hand-built Japanese joinery on my house—a huge cypress beam that they had to put up. They had to do a lot of work to seal it. It was good work. I'd say they get an A. Not an A+, but I don't know why. An A for sure though.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Brownlow & Sons was perfect; they were great. They did what they said they would do, they didn't leave a mess, and they painted beautifully. They painted the garage door and some exterior doors, and I would give them an A rating.”
“Because of the quality of their work and the care that they put into it, Brownlow & Sons is the only one we use. They repainted the whole inside, and they made a few changes like adding hardwood floors, which match absolutely perfectly. The care that they took all the way around was absolutely fantastic. I found about the company through their reputation—they've been around forever. They're an A.”
“They did a great deal of work for us. I was very pleased with their service and the people, and they did a wonderful job. They did outside painting and a small amount of inside planning.”
“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+.”
“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.”
“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+.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“They replaced shingles and rotten wood on the exterior of my house, and I was very pleased. They did a great job. I found out about them because all my neighbors used them, and I'd recommend them myself. They're an A company.”
“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+.”
“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+++.”
“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.”
“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.”
“I used Brownlow & Sons as a painter, and they were excellent. I guess it was just the exterior. I'm happy with the quality of the materials that they used and the work that was done—excellent quality of everything. The service was excellent, and the finished product was an excellent job. We got the name from Home Reports.”
“They're excellent. They stained the outside of the house. Overall, I would say it was a good experience. They did a good job. My experience was definitely positive; they did a good job. They were an A.”

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+.

We had the house painted and some other work done by Brownlow. They're absolutely A+—absolute pros. You can see all the effort they put into preparation. They have very high standards of work that they apply to themselves. It's top-quality service.

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.

I thought Brownlow & Sons did a very nice job for us. This was actually the second time that we've hired Brownlow to do some work for us, and we've been completely satisfied both times. I'll give them my referral. To the extent that I need to have work done in the future, I'll probably hire them again. They did exterior painting. I had no problems whatsoever; I can't think of one single problem that I had with them. If a couple of places were missed, they were very willing to come back and hit those. It was just a good experience. I'd recommend them. I'm a hard grader, but I'd have to give them an A. We were just very satisfied with the job that they've done. I know we had a lot of neighbors who used other painting contractors and weren't as satisfied and actually had other problems, so I felt very fortunate.

Everything went very well. I was very pleased with Brownlow & Sons. I would give them an A on the repair work they did on the outside of my chimney. I chose them because they had done some work in the neighborhood. So I had them come down and give me a price, and it seemed fair, so I used them. I haven't had to call them back regarding any of the work. They did a good job.

We'll give Brownlow an A. I never really got to meet them personally—we dealt mostly on the telephone—but my husband did get to meet them. They did a very good job and did it in a good time frame, so we were quite satisfied.

Brownlow & Sons handled exterior painting. They did quality work, were courteous, showed up on time, kept their promises, and cleaned up well. I'd give them an A. Everything went great; I'm very pleased.

It was great. I would totally use Brownlow & Sons again. They were always on time every day, and they were just super thorough with their work. They painted a couple of different rooms for us. They're very detail oriented. Also, they cleaned up when they left each day. I didn't have to really be involved at all, which was just really nice. I haven't had to call them back at all, either. I can't think of anything that was negative. I would give them an A.

We think Brownlow & Sons are good. They stand out because they're professional, they're on time, they do what they say they going to do, and they don't charge you more than they quoted. Nothing's ever been beneath my standards. They get an A.

We used Brownlow to do some exterior painting, and they were very good. I'd give them an A. They're in the Home Reports. They repainted the windows—so far, so good. I didn't have to call them back for anything. We've used them multiple times, too. They repainted our house about five years ago, and there were some windows that were peeling, so they came back out and did that.

Brownlow & Sons were fantastic; we have nothing but good things to say about them. They did some painting for us. They did a fantastic job; they were just great. We have recommended them to other people. I would give them the highest rating.

Brownlow & Sons painted the outside of our house twice. We hope for them to paint the inside this year. The painting job is excellent. Even the guys who wash the house commented on the paint job and how long it’s lasted.
