“They were very good. They did the exterior windows. Campus Corps did everything they said they were going to do. They did a good job cleaning up and they even took the shutters down that I asked them to take down. I'd give them an excellent rating. I'd recommend them.”

“Campus Corps did exterior painting for me. It was a good job done and they showed up here on time. They were very clean and very good. They did a great job. They get an A.”

“That was a long time ago—last year. They were wonderful to work with. We were very happy with their services. It was just an outdoor, exterior job.”

“They were great. They've done different things for us, both interior and exterior. They're great. We would use Campus Corps again and we recommend them.”

“Everything was fine. It was excellent work, no issues whatsoever. I would be very likely to recommend them. They painted the outside.”

“They were easy to work with. The painter was neat and did a good job. They did exterior painting. I would give them an A+.”

“Campus Corps painted inside the garage. They were very quick and they got the job done to our satisfaction. They get an A.”

“It was last year. They painted our whole house. The outside. They did a good job. When Campus Corps started the job, they got it done in a good time frame. They kept right at it until they were done. I'd give them an A rating.”

“They did power washing and some painting outside of the house. Everything looked better. The first guy that came, he gave me the estimate. He was very friendly and the workers were very friendly too. If we asked them to do something they would if it was listed on the information sheet. I'd grade them as an A.”

“They finished everything really nice. There was a good coat of paint on there. They picked up everything when they were done. We were very pleased with Campus Corps. I'd give them an A.”

“They did exterior painting work for me. They were clean, they were efficient, they did a nice job. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Campus Corps was great. They did painting and repair work. The workers were the best—they just did what they needed to do. I'd grade them an A+.”

“They were high quality, and they met the deadline. They prepped and painted four rooms. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Everything's perfect. All their people were very helpful. They painted the house, and everything's great.”

“They were very polite and did a good job cleaning all their stuff. In general, it was a good experience. Campus Corps has done work for me for many years, and I got them three new customers. I'd give them an A+. I can't say enough about Campus Corps.”

“They were easy to work with and very nice. They did a good job. They did exterior painting. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“The guys were very thorough. They painted a bedroom. They get an A+ from me.”

“They did some work for us over a year ago. They did a good job and we would hire them again. What made it positive was that they did a good job. They were patching and painting, so they had a very complex job. I would give them an A grade.”

“What stood out to me was the quick, quality work and good communication. They did repainting and some carpentry work on the porch. They earned an A.”

“They did a painting job a few years ago. They showed up on time, cleaned up, and they did a good job. They did everything that they said they were going to do. This is a house that they painted, and it was multiple colors. I think they scraped it, water blasted it, and primed it where needed. They did what normally would be done for painting a house. I'd give them an A.”

“They're OK. They're fine.”

“It was overall a good job. They did exterior painting. They earned an A.”

“The experience positive, but I'm very busy. They're good.”

“They come on time, they do what they say, and they clean up very nicely. They check everything to make sure that it's done right. They painted all of the windows and trims. We checked to make sure that the windows still opened after they painted everything. They didn't paint the front door, which my husband didn't want painted. I'd give them an A.”

“Campus Corps did some painting. They did a pretty good job. They painted the entire exterior of my home. I'd say I'd probably give them about an A. Their quality of work was very good. The service was great. I'm likely to recommend them.”

“They were very good. They were polite and very thorough. They deserve an A. Everything was fine.”

“It was handy, and it was fine.”

“It was a good job, well done. They did the stairs for me—the front and back stairs. I'd give them an A, they were fine. Their quality of work was fine.”

“I sold my house. They did a good job. Nothing stood out, they had a job to do, and they did it. They did some painting for me. I would give them an A. I'm moving, so it doesn't make any difference whether I would recommend them.”

“They did a great job. They showed up on time, did the work, and did a good job. They painted the deck. I'd rate them as an A.”

“They did a good job of painting. They did pretty much all the walls in four different rooms. I would give them an A. They were here when they promised to be.”

“They came when they said; they did exactly what they should be doing. So that always makes it positive.”

“The attitude of the workers stood out. I can't remember his name, he was the owner's son, he's a good kid—he was thorough and accommodating, wanting to make sure everything was good, the whole thing. I've got a 3300-sq foot home and they scraped all the walls, painted the exterior, the soffits, and fascias. When I heard them scraping the wall, I did it myself, I said, 'Boy that is money well spent.' It really was. I'd give them an A. Keep in mind, that's today. I have the three-year extended warranty. Call me in three years because if something starts to peel, they promise they'll come out and take care of it. So that hasn't happened yet.”

“They explained what they were going to do, and they did it right. They cleaned up well. Everything they told me they would do, they did. They did the whole outside of the house. A couple of my neighbors are remodelers, and they recommended Campus Corps. They were right down the block, so it was close. I would say they're an A.”

“They painted our porch. They were fine. They did a quality job, so I'd give them an A.”

“It was a very nice job. Campus Corps did interior painting, and they did a great job. I would give them an A.”

“They were timely, they cleaned up, and they were good. They did inside and outside painting. I'm going to use them again. I would give Campus Corps an A.”

“Campus Corps helped me out in rough spots. They painted my dining room. They painted quickly—they did it in a day. They get an A. I used them last year, and I just used them this past week.”

“They were very efficient. They have done the outside several times, but the last time they came, they did the living room wall and the hallway wall. I have been using them for years. I would say they're an A.”

“It was fine. I think they did some outdoor trim on an apartment building. An A grade is good for them.”

“They were very timely and prompt, and they cleaned up well. They did a couple of bedrooms and a bathroom. Campus Corps gets an A.”

“They did interior and exterior work. They were prompt, reliable, and on time, and they did everything they said they were going to do. I would grade them as an A.”

“I had them do trim painting on my house, and I was very satisfied.”

“Campus Corps did painting for me last summer. I had used them before, and I would give them an A.”

“They're very professional. The guys were very clean and organized, and they did everything they said they would do. They had to paint the side of my house. I've known of them for many, many years. I would give them an A.”

“They do a good job. They were punctual. I think the last time they were out, they did a bedroom and a bathroom. They get an A grade.”

“They showed up when they said they would, and they did what they said they would do as long as they were properly instructed. They were nice people. Campus Corps is an A.”

“It was really nice, and Campus Corps did a wonderful job. I used them to sell the house. They painted the deck, and it looked beautiful. I got a lot of compliments. I would give them an A+.”

“Their work was high quality. They did both exterior and interior painting, and they followed up. I was happy with their work. They deserve an A.”

“They did a wonderful job, they were prompt, and they carried through on all of their promises. They painted the house and trim. I liked the warranty they offered with the product. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“Campus Corps was professional and easy to deal with, and they did great work. We would choose them again. There was a lot of comprehensive information provided up front, and it was very thorough. They get an A.”

“Campus Corps was really great. They did a good job. I'm really proud of their work, and I would highly recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a nice job. I did not have any issues with them while they were there. I would say they're excellent, and they did a good job. They're an A. I would recommend them.”

“They did an excellent job. They were prompt, very clean, and professional. I chose them based on the work I'd seen them do in the neighborhood. They get an A grade from me.”

“They worked on our time line, and they did the work. It was a house that we were getting ready to sell, so I had a limited time line to work with, and they were able to accommodate it. They did the work on a Saturday and finished up on a Sunday, which was nice. They are local, and I've used them before. They were really good. They're an A company.”

“With Campus Corps, I had a great experience. They did interior and exterior painting and also gave me quotes. The things that made the experience positive for me were that they were on time, did quality work, and were reliable, neat, tidy, and thorough. I've used them twice, and I'll use them again when I'm ready. I would rate them as an A+.”

“They went through my insurance, and they did good. The wall was broken and had to be repainted back to the same color that it was. They did a good job. I heard about them through a friend who had used them, and I would recommend them as well. I would use them again, and I would give them an A+ grade.”

“They did a good job. It was painting work. They repaired what I asked to be repaired, and they did the work on time. I chose them because I had used them before. They're an A.”

“I was pleased with the service. I would give them an A grade.”

“They did a good job. They came in, told us what they were going to do, and did exactly what they told us they were going to do. They set themselves up, they cleaned up when they were done, and the job looks good. We'd give them an A.”

“I like Campus Corps. I've been using them for two years, and I would recommend them. I would say they're an A.”

“They did a good job. They got it done in one day and cleaned up well after themselves. They get an A grade from me.”

“There were no problems. They got the work done on time, and it's all good. I would recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“It was fast and thorough, and the overall work of the job was great. That was my first time using them, and I would use them again. They deserve an A.”

“They painted. They did what they said they were going to do, and they cleaned up. Everything was done quickly and professionally. I'd probably give them an A.”

“They did work for us last summer. The job was completed on time, and it was completed according to specifications. They were very professional, so I have no complaints. I would give them an A.”

“They did a good job. We were not unhappy with what they did. It was very well done. There was one spot where they missed something, but they picked it up and fixed it right away. The color that they were painting was so close to the one that was up there that it was almost impossible to tell that there was a difference. They're an A.”

“Campus Corps was excellent. They've worked for me three times, and they're very good. The first time I had them paint for me was in 2001, and I've had them back twice since then on two different properties. They're honest, and they do the work to perfection. I just can't say enough about the company. They're fantastic. They deserve an A++.”

“I thought they were great. They painted the entire interior of my house for me. They were neat, clean, and helpful. I have nothing bad to say about them. Not only would I use them again, but I'd tell all my friends to use them too. I'd give them the highest rating possible—A+.”

“My new house needed painting from top to bottom, and Campus Corps was fabulous. I would rate them as an A+, and I've already recommended them to people.”

“They did the work when they said they would. They completed it on time, and it looks completely professional. They did a fantastic job. We've used Campus Corps before about five or six years ago. I would highly recommend them because their service is fantastic. Their workmen are so courteous, and they do immaculate cleanup. They were great—they earned an A+++.”

“I was really pleased with Campus Corps. The painting was done mostly in the garage; they did a couple of coats on the ceiling and the trim. They were very nice, and the quality of the work seemed very good—the colors were perfect. They cleaned up everything. It was my first time using the company; I talked to three other people, but I just liked Campus Corps' attitude. It's very good, and I think they get the best grade—an A+.”

“It was wonderful, and we were very happy. They did a good job doing miscellaneous outside painting for us. They left everything nice and clean. We've just used their services once, but they were very nice to work with, and we would use them again. We were pleased because it was excellent work. I'd give the company an A+.”

“The gentleman who was doing our hallway and our dining room had put on one coat already, and the second day when he came back, our electricity went out. So the hallway was kind of dark, but he painted anyway—in the dark—and it's perfect. It was amazing. There are no mess-ups on the ceiling or anything, so I was very, very pleased with them. This was the first time I had this company do work for me. They're an A+ company.”

“They did a beautiful job on the interior, and the customer service, overall, was excellent. We're very pleased that we picked Campus Corps. They did a beautiful job.”

“I'd give Campus Corps the highest recommendation. I was super pleased. They did a good job, and they did it expeditiously. That was my experience, and I would recommend them to anybody. They painted the exterior, and painted and stained a back porch. They did it in good time, and it was very good.”

“I used Campus Corps the last two times I needed painting, and we were very pleased with them. They were on time, they cleaned up nicely after themselves, and they were friendly. Their work quality was excellent. I would give them an A+.”

“The man from Campus Corps was there to do exterior painting. He was intelligent, polite, on time, clean, personable, and just a pleasure to deal with. There was no language barrier. I would give him an A+.”

“They used to use high school kids, or college kids, but then they changed their name. They did very good work, and they were very helpful about everything and recommending things that needed to be done. I was very satisfied. Campus Corps gets an A+.”

“The quality of the work and the product provided by the company made my experience a positive one. I called them for outdoor painting, and the trim turned out OK for me. The customer service—in the way the company employees related to me during the whole process, including the estimate, and then did the work and finished it—was very high quality. They're an A+.”

“They painted the exterior of my house, and it looks very good. I already had the color in mind. The time frame was good, too. I can rank the company as the highest grade.”

“Campus Corps told us they were under a heavy workload at the time, so the painter who came in was not one of their regular people. We really liked him; we thought he did a great job. He did an excellent job. We were really pleased with the quality, and it was everything we had hoped we would experience with a painter. He was a very nice guy. They painted a living room where I have an 18-foot ceiling and a loft area. He did fine on the cleanup. I give them an A+ for work completed with no complaints.”

“They did a good job and finished on time. They painted the outside of my house, which is a very difficult house to paint. It's a very, very tall stucco building—two stories—and it's very peaked and rough, and it sits on the side of a hill. It was my first time using them, but I would use them again. Everything was fine. Campus Corps was an excellent company to do business with. They get an A+.”

“They were very good, and I'd highly recommend them. They were quick and very clean. We'd use the company again. They painted the front of the building here, and they didn't get any paint where it should not go. I would say they earned their A+. We were very, very happy because they came out here. I reached out to, I'd say, maybe six people, and they did not call me back. Campus Corps was very good. There's somebody who comes out to give you the quote, and then, of course, the painter comes and does his work. They do what you ask them to do, and they come out early so there isn't any disturbance. I'd give them an A+.”

“I used Campus Corps, and they did help us by painting our house. They did very well—an excellent job. They had to get on my neighbor's property to get access to our house, and they did that without a problem. They took care of the neighbor's property, and we were very well pleased with them. They worked and they finished on time. Everything was great. I would give them an A grade.”

“They did exterior painting, and the company's work and service were excellent. I went with them and told them what brand of paint I wanted, and they picked it up. They cleaned up afterward. I'd give Campus Corps an A.”

“They did a very good job. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone because just about everything was positive. The estimator came, took a good look around, and gave us an estimate. When the two men came out there, they were very neat. They cleaned up everything, and they did a beautiful job painting. It was exterior painting; I wanted white paint, and they said they use Benjamin Moore paint, not contractor paint. I would grade Campus Corps an A on everything.”

“We were very pleased. Campus Corps did a lovely job. What they did was a repair of the ceiling that had been damaged. It was easy to schedule with them. The funny thing was when I talked with them in June, we thought it would be wise to wait through the summer to see if the cracking stopped, so I said, 'Sometime after Labor Day.' The day after Labor Day, they called to tell me they were on the way, so they had attention to detail. They deserve an A.”

“It was a small job on the outside, and the painters from Campus Corps were good. There's no chipped paint that I'm aware of.”

“I used Campus Corps, and they were really very good. In fact, I was considering calling them again because I wanted to have my ceiling done. They did the whole interior of my garage—my garage doors, my walls, my ceilings, and the shelving in it. They did a nice job, and they finished in a reasonable amount of time. It was a completely good experience. They were timely; they came when they said they would, and they were finished when they promised. In the next couple weeks, possibly, I am going to have them do something inside the house. It was above average—an A+.”

“They were efficient and quick. I had them do my living room and dining room for me. They painted, and I feel like they paid close attention to the small details and trim. The cleanup, when they were done, was fine. Their grade would be an A+. They were very courteous, nice, and quick. They got it done in a set amount of time, and they were available when I needed them.”

“Campus Corps did a great job—up to expectations. The customer service, the response time, and everything was great. They painted the exterior, and so far, so good. The company earned an A+.”

“They came in and did the job. They were painting a metal railing on a cement porch, and they did it on time, didn't make a mess, and they did a great job. It was rusty, so they scraped it, put on a seal coat, and then they painted it. It looks great. I chose Campus Corps because they had a good reputation around the town. They're an A+ company.”

“I would say my experience with Campus Corps was positive because they finished the job on time, and they were very neat and clean. They had done some work in the neighborhood, and I needed some trim work done—some scraping and painting of some of the trim on my house. It turned out well for me, and the cleanup was very good. I chose this company because they had done a lot of work in the neighborhood. They were very familiar with people in the neighborhood and had done work here before. I would rate the company as an A+.”

“They got in, got their job done, and left. They painted the exterior, and the quality of work was good. Their customer service was on the ball; I didn't have any problem with any of them. I think it took a couple of days, if I remember correctly. It was good quality work and service. I didn't have any problems, so they get an A+, I guess.”

“They just worked really hard, and we were satisfied with what they did because we felt that they went above and beyond what we hired them to do. They painted the trim on the outside of the house, and it turned out really nice. It was great, and we would recommend them. I would say that Campus Corps deserves an A+.”

“The work they did on my house was fine. The gentleman who came to quote and look around was very nice. They painted the outside of my whole house and replaced a lot of boards that were getting bad because our house is 35 years old. He did a nice job. They painted, and I was a little worried that they wouldn't finish in time because it was getting cold, but they finished. It looks nice, and we're happy so far. There was nothing left after they cleaned up—you didn't even know that they were there. I got their name out of the Best Pick Reports.”

“This company did the job well. They painted my door, and they were very clean and neat. He was able to fit me in when I needed to have the work done. They get an A+.”

“I was here, and they did a good job. We were very happy with them, and we would probably call them again if we needed some work done. The painters were very neat, and they arrived when they said they would arrive. They cleaned up—there was no mess left behind. They were very good. We were very happy. We had no issues with them whatsoever, so I would say they earned an A+. They were very dependable, they came on time and finished the work, and they were very clean. We had no problems whatsoever.”

“Campus Corps did a good job when they painted the exterior of the house. It was first time I've ever used them, but I would use them again. I got other estimates, but Campus Corps had a good attitude and explained things. They get an A+ because they were helpful.”
