“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.”

“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+.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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+.”

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

“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.”

“I thought they were excellent. We had Brownlow & Sons paint the outside of the house last year, and they did a wonderful job. You couldn’t ask for a better painter or any kind of person coming to your house and doing something. They absolutely get an A.”

“Brownlow & Sons did the interior of the house, and they were incredible. They’re very efficient. They were great. The house looks gorgeous.”

“They’re awesome. They were wonderful. They helped me correct a big disaster I had with another company that was not in Home Reports. I would definitely back up Brownlow & Sons—they’re great. Especially the painting division. They are the best.”

“They’re a great company. I would use them over and over again. And they are very efficient. They were very clean and very hardworking. They’ve painted my kitchen and painted my basement. They’ve done several different phases of painting for me, and each time they’ve done a really great job. I’d give them an A grade overall, absolutely.”

“We used Brownlow, and they were fantastic. The foreman was just incredible. Very knowledgeable. They used the highest-quality products. They took really good care to make sure paint didn’t get anywhere, and everything still looks good.”

“They painted the outside of our house, and we’ve had them paint numerous rooms inside the house. They do outstanding work....You can absolutely count on them; I would call them for anything. I’ve called on them for construction repairs and painting. I highly recommend them.”

“The people were all extremely friendly and easy to work with. Everyone worked together really well. They were all skilled and talented....They got along very well together and coordinated perfectly. They’re very excellent.”

“They painted our house, and we had them come back and do some work on the deck. I would give them the highest rating. Their representative who worked with us—the same gentleman worked with us on both projects—was very professional, very thorough, and very responsive. I even called them for some additional information, just so I could match up the paint, and they were helpful with that. I’ll certainly continue to use them. ”

“They’ve done a lot of our home maintenance recently. They did a major renovation for us when we moved into our house. It feels good to have those people that I know and trust around my house, in and out. I think they’re definitely worth it. ”

“I would recommend them. They were very professional. There wasn’t a lot of chattering going on—there was more working than chattering, which is always a good thing. ”

“They did a great job. They took pride in what they did, and it was just a pleasure to have them. ”

“They were so good. They pressure washed, and painted the siding, and repaired some of the trim that had been damaged. If I ever needed more work, I would contact them.  ”

“I had painting done last year. Brownlow did the exterior of the house. They were wonderful, just excellent. They had good prep, and they were excellent painters. They were here on time and did everything they were supposed to do and did that very well.”

“Brownlow did an interior and exterior job. I have a brick home, so the exterior was just trim, and the inside was completely done. They did a good job.”

“I just used a painter from Home Reports. I ended up using Brownlow & Sons. They did a great job. I liked that they were very detailed, and my house looks fantastic. They were timely, detailed, and professional. Gutters were a part of Brownlow's thing, too. They fixed my gutters.”

“They did a great job for us. I've used them twice to paint my house. Recently, I just had them come back to do some touch-ups. They do very high quality work in my opinion. The person that we were dealing with is very responsive and very quality oriented. I felt like they did a very good job for us.”

“The last thing they did was a routine job that they do every three years, taking care of resurfacing of our decks and any touch-up painting of the house. They always do a fine job. They have a good track record. Periodically they've done some other work for us, but painting has been pretty much what they do routinely every few years.”

“They were good. We've had them before, and that's why we hired them again. It was a paint job and some repairs as well. We're glad to recommend them.”

“We've used them for several years. They're the only people we trust in our house. They're a full-service company. We're totally sold on Brownlow. They're good. We use them for all our painting, window repair, and things like that. Mark and the whole crew are totally dependable and reliable. They're just great people. I'd give them an A, and we're Brownlow all the way.”

“They did a great job. They really did. We are so pleased with the job they did. This was the only time they've done work for me. In fact, we had found their name in Home Reports. And it was that review that made us decide on them. It was a paint job. They painted the outside of the house, and they did some repair work for us, some carpentry work out where some squirrels had gotten in. That kind of thing. But if anybody were to ask me, I would definitely recommend them.”

“They were fabulous. They did a really good job. I would highly recommend them to anybody. Very professional, on time. They just did everything they said they were going to do when they said they'd do it. This wasn't the only time they've done work for me. We had them come in again recently and do a paint job and smoothing ceilings. So, they did again an excellent job. Very good quality. Very reliable.”

“They did paint for me; I think it was last year. They were wonderful. They showed up on time. They did beautiful work. They were neat and clean. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat. They hung wallpaper, too. I had my bedroom and bathroom redone, and they have painted woodwork inside my house at another time. I'm planning on having some remodeling done, rooms done, and I will hire them again to paint.”

“They did an excellent job. They knew exactly what had to be done and did it. They even did things that didn't need to be done, like when it came to paint the trim, they also touched up some of the main part of the house that had gotten a little bit discolored. And they're a really reputable and good company. They've actually been out here three times. They painted the body of the house about five years ago, then remodeled a bathroom about three years ago. Then they were back last year to paint the trim. So, I call them every time. I've got no problem with them at all.”

“They did a great job. They arrived when they said they would, and they did a great job painting our house. It was just one job that they've done for me. It was the first time we'd called them.”

“When they worked for us, they always did good work. They still do. They have done more than one job for us over the years. Over 20 years ago they did something more extensive than just paint work. They did the remodeling of a different house, but I think the only thing they've done recently is painting. May have done some small repair. I'm not in charge of all of that, my wife is, but I know she's happy with them.”

“They painted the kitchen. My wife says they were really good. They did a nice job.”

“They did a fine job. I was not directly involved in hiring them. I was the president, and I talked to them at first. It was a neighborhood project. The painted the light lamps, mailboxes, some light posts, and stop signs. They didn't do it just for my house. They did it for 52 homes, so it was a big project. I'm happy with what they did. They did a fine job, on time and on budget.”

“They were fine. They were very responsive. They did the work that they said they were going to do and price came in as we agreed upon. I was pleased with them. This was my only experience with Brownlow. I don't remember all of the details of how I picked them, but I got estimates from two or three different people and I preferred them. They seemed to be very competent and got me the estimate right away. They did everything I asked and more.”

“They did well. They were great. They were excellent. This wasn't the first time they've done work for me. They've done work before. This was just painting. They're the best. They're excellent.”

“For painting, interior, we used Brownlow & Sons, and they were good.”

“They did great. We were very pleased with them. They have painted both the outside of our house and the inside at two different times, maybe about two years apart or something like that. We were very pleased with the work and the speed that they accomplished it with and the quality. No surprises or anything. We were very pleased with them both times. I know on the outside they had to do some wood repair, on the inside not. It was minor repair.”

“I thought they did a really good job. They did exterior cleaning, caulking, prep work, painting, cleaning of the deck, and then they sealed that. I thought they did a really good job. They did things that needed to be done to the outside of the house before you paint it. It is the only time I've used them. I thought they were very professional. And they did a quick job, but they did a very thorough job, too.”

“My experience has been excellent. They've done a great job. I would definitely use them again. I've actually used them in the past, and they did such a great job I called them again for this job. They painted a couple rooms on the inside, the siding on the outside. And they're also expanding my master bedroom closet. They've done quite a bit. I have good comments for them overall.”

“They did a great job. I was very pleased. And they were very professional and just got right to it and got it done. This wasn't the only time I've used Brownlow & Sons. I've used them in the past. I don't know, five years ago, I had some painting done then. That time they were excellent as well. That's why I went back to them for these repairs that I needed and some painting. It was great. Brownlow replaced some glass for me this last time around. They did glass repair and some other repairs. They did some painting. Actually, my house has plaster walls, and that's part of what Brownlow does when they do painting. They do a really good job with plaster in getting it prepped and ready for paint.”

“They did a very good job. They were prompt in coming, and they were very considerate and courteous. At the same time, they did a good job with the construction portion. They were replacing some columns, and they did some outside repair work, and they also did some painting for me. They replaced gutters and they did a variety of things. They also painted my fence and my deck, they stained it. They were referred to me through a personal reference.”

“Brownlow & Sons was great. They did the inside. The cleanup on the job was fine—no messes for me to clean up. They were really good.”

“Brownlow & Sons painted the whole house. They've painted inside, they've repaired stuff, and they've always been great. I actually sent them a letter of commendation. They really impressed me, especially in the painting side. They did good when they painted the whole outside of the house years ago, and then did a lot of work painting inside and with some new attic stairs and other things.”

“I consulted the white book to find a contractor to do a couple of construction jobs as well as painting, and I had Brownlow do that. Brownlow did two, three jobs for us. They painted the house, repaired the deck, put a new surface on the deck, and they redid the front brick steps that had pulled away from the house and were kind of sunken—they had fixed that for us too. We are very pleased with the work they've done and plan to have them bid on a project we've got redoing the master bedroom.”

“They did a great job. They're very professional, very timely, and very neat. They just did a great job—I was very pleased. They did some interior work for me. It was just certain rooms of the house.”

“I got their name out of Home Reports. They didn't just do interior painting, they also did construction on the outside. They did grouting. They did a variety of things that you would expect contractors to do. I would definitely use them again. That was a one-time situation, but they did a variety of jobs while they were here. They actually did faux painting, they did grouting, they did exterior sealing, and they did exterior painting. They did a lot of stuff for us in the bathroom. They did some stuff in the bathroom and painting in the bathroom. They did a variety of things, in other words, they sent different teams out to do different chores. They have specialized people for the tasks. I've got the Brownlow thing, and I've got the name of the guy that was basically the foreman—Midhet Cemal. He's been here for a long time. I really liked Brownlow. I was very impressed.”
