“The quality of there work was very good. Timing and scheduling were a little bit difficult, there might have been reasons for that and weren't all their fault. But that was the biggest challenge, it was just making sure we could figure out when the work would be scheduled and when we would get it done. But the quality of their work is great. I would grade them a A-, because the quality of their work was great, and they were trying to schedule it in around other work. So, it wasn't completely their fault, at the same time even if they said we are scheduling you in, and we are going to put you in on this day, sometimes that day didn't work out and we had to cancel. So, it was just the difficulty in scheduling. Again, just a problem trying to figure out how to work us in.”

“I’ve had many, many positive experiences. I’ve had them for years. They just do really good work. Adam is the guy I’ve always worked with, and he’s just wonderful. He is very easy to work with, and he always works me in when I need help. His painters are just really nice. They're good people to have around. They just do a great job. They're kind of expensive but I’d give them an A. I would recommend them to anybody.”

“They were clean, they did quality work, they finished the job on time in a workman like fashion at the quoted price. I would grade them an A+. I had to get up at 6:30 in the morning to let them in, their customer service was very good. I still keep in contact with them. There were a couple of things that when they came back, they said ‘we missed this and will take care of it for you.’”

“Everything that someone is going to do in your house you would expect from they did. Everything and they were clean, fast, and very concerned about everything. If there was a problem they addressed it immediately. I would grade them an A+. I didn't have much to do with customer service other than calling them initially and they handled it perfectly. Without a doubt they were on time.”

“I had an awesome experience with them. I like the help that they gave me with picking colors. I liked how neat they were, they told me what time they were going to be there. They came at that time and they were very professional and the job is beautiful. I would grade them an A+. They definitely knew what they were doing. I have recommended them already.”

“They did a really good job. They were very quick and efficient. It was all good things. It was fast, and it was very professional. I can’t say about pricing too much because I didn’t quote a lot of people. I did get them off of the Best Pick magazine. They are A+ because they were fast, they were neat, and it was all good. I would highly recommend them.”

“We did it at my parent's house. They are great, they are very timely. They are very clean and respectful to the environment that they are in—if they have to deal with neighbors or things like that. They are very responsive, respectful and their work is high quality. I would grade them an A.”

“They showed up when they said they're going to show up, and later on when I asked them to show up, he wasn't happy with the way that it was going to be in my house. So, he took the piece back in his shop and made sure it was done right. Overall, I would give them an A.”

“I was very satisfied with their work. They were knowledgeable. I'm in a homeowner's association building. It has certain restrictions. I told them what it is that I was looking for and he gave me a good suggestion, which I hadn't thought of. I would give them an A.”

“The paperhanger, Chris, was very nice. The DiVinci people did a very good job. The paperhanger was here today, I'm not sure he could help me, but it wasn't his fault. DiVinci was very good all the way down. I would most likely recommend them.”

Review by

“I'm staring at Best Pick Reports; DiVinci did a lot of work for me. I like their attention to detail and great quality work. They are here in the area, and it's difficult to find painters that do the right thing. I use Best Pick Reports and they definitely should be one of the recommended choices from my perspective. They get an A grade from me.”

Review by

“They completed the job, and then when we gave them feedback that they needed to come back to our house and finish up some stuff, they didn't push back, which a lot of contractors do. They came back and did the work. They answered all of the questions that we had. They painted our stairwell. They redid our hardwood floor in the stairwell, and they did a fine job.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I thought they did a nice job. I thought the two people who came were very professional. They were clean and neat. I thought they gave good input, valuable input. They painted all of the trim on the outside of our house, and they painted a porch. I guess they were accessible. I think I chose them from their availability and their price. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They're very clean, very fast, and efficient. They knew exactly what to do. They got the job done right away with no problems. They had painted an entire living room, did some plasterboard work, and did a real nice job. They're very pleasant and very easy to work with, and I really like their results. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They were quick. They did good work. They did miss a section that they were meant to paint. We contacted them about it and they did come to see what it was that they missed but they have not scheduled a time to have it fixed yet. They did say that they would fix it so I'm sure that they will be the work that they did was good. I would give them a B+ rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I think they came when they were scheduled. They were neat, they did a good job, and they were reasonably priced. They painted the outside of my house. I didn't really have many interactions other than when they quoted. Everything was fine. I probably mainly chose them because of price. I would say they get an A grade.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I'm a repeat customer, so I've liked their work before. I like the quality of the work, the way they deal with their customers, and their manner in speaking with people. They've done outdoor wood staining. They're personable and accommodating. I found out about them from another company. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They did good work, and they finished it in a fairly timely manner. They did some painting, and they did an outside deck for me. The workers were hard workers—they worked hard, and they were competent. They had done work for me before. I would probably give them an A-. They had to redo part of the deck.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They came, they did the job, and the job held up. I was satisfied. The price was good too. They did the outside of our house. They were there on time. All of those things mattered. They did the job and that was what mattered. I heard about them from my sister. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They did a quality job in the time that they promised for the cost that they promised. They did the whole house the first time, and the second time they painted a few rooms. I chose them because of a friend's referral and then the quotes they gave me seemed fair. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They were clean, and they produced what they said they would. They're on time and everything. They painted my house. Their representative was perfect, and the people he sent were perfect. I have a son that knew of them, so that's how I heard about them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They're well organized and on time, they did a high quality job, and they did it within the time frame they said they would. They painted a third-floor interior. I thought the customer service was good. We've used them before and had a good outcome. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“The work was done on time and on budget, and I didn't have to get involved, so they were good. They did some painting of some woodwork in our house. I had someone manage it for me, so everything worked smoothly. A contractor recommended them. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They were able to efficiently do the job. They patched a section of the ceiling. The customer service was fantastic. I just heard about them from a reference through a friend. They were great. I would say they're an A across the board on everything. They were fantastic.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They had a specific job I wanted done, and the guy that came out to do it did it all himself—a little bit of woodwork, painted it, and it came out nice. I found their customer service to be fine. I called a few places, but it was a small job in this case, and DiVinci Painters was happy to do it. Some places want bigger jobs, so it just worked out. I would give them an A grade.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“The quality of the work was really great. They repaired a mahogany front door. There were spots on it that needed to be repaired, and they repaired it in such a way that you didn't have to refinish the entire door. They just repaired the spots. They were efficient, cost-effective, and high quality. I found their customer service to be good. I chose them because they had done some work for me before and I knew they were good. I'd say they're an A rating.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They didn't do it recently, but we've always used them and they're great. They are the only painters that I will use. They're great at what they do and very professional, they always clean up after themselves, and they're just very nice and easygoing guys—great guys. They painted the inside and outside of our house. They've done some caulking and anything related to painting. We've been using them for like 15 years. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“The painting work was good. She's really detailed. The estimate was pretty spot-on. The guy who came in, did the estimate, and told me how many coats they would need was right on. They know their stuff. The painters are very experienced when it comes to painting. They repainted the interior of my house. I picked a color. They told me how much they needed, and then they gave me the estimate of how much it was going to cost. The customer service was good, but I think they had some problem at the beginning, like they couldn't arrive on time or no one showed up on the first day of the job. I had to call them and really pound on them. I had to take a day off to wait for them, nobody showed up, and that's not acceptable. I received this Best Pick Reports in the mail, I saw they were ranked pretty high, and so I asked for a quote. Their quotes are pretty comparable to others so we just decided to pick them and give them a chance. I would give them an A- because of the initial issue of scheduling. They did make it right for us though.”

“We have a French colonial house with a roof, it has windows that come out, and they did a beautiful job. They did an absolutely beautiful job of rebuilding the wooden windows. The rain was coming in the house beforehand and now we're dry, and we're very pleased. We have some interior work to do as well as some exterior work to do, and we're hoping that we can use them again this year and then next spring. This goes back 14 or 15 years, maybe a little more when we needed some work done beforehand. DiVinci was good from a workmanship standpoint, from a price standpoint, and they looked like they could handle the two other projects that I just discussed. I said that if these people do as well as I think they will, we’d ride with them all the way through. One of them will be the interior work in the living room and the hall, and then the last one will actually be painting the house. In this case, I would say they're an A. Quite clearly, we don't have any reservations and we do hope to use them again.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I liked that they were very thorough, clean, attentive to detail, and helpful with suggesting colors. They painted my kitchen cupboards and removed wallpaper from my breakfast room. It was adhered to the wall, and they figured out how to deal with that. They patched the ceiling in the kitchen and painted that. They painted the bathroom. I was actually astonished by their workers. I met one in the paint store when I was considering whether to paint the cabinets by spraying them or painting them. I just asked the guy if he had an opinion about that, and he said, ‘Yeah, you should definitely spray them.’ I said, ‘Do you know anybody who does this?’ He asks the guy who had come in with the paint, and he says, ‘Yes, I don't do it personally, but we do it. Here's a business card; you can call my company.’ I did, and that was DiVinci Painters. That's how I originally heard about them. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They were very expert, and they were able to do things in addition to just painting. When they paint, there are little things that come up that have to be fixed. Little damages and so on and so forth, and they were very good at that. They were very thorough and expert at the painting and at evaluating what had to be done in order to get the effect that I wanted. They took off wallpaper in a couple of rooms and painted. They painted over the paint. They fixed the front door that had some cracks and everything. They repaired it and painted it. They responded to any questions I had. My daughter had used them. She was very fussy, and I admired the work that they did, so I took them. I didn't get any other bids or anything like that. I really wanted somebody that I could work with who I felt would do a good job, and I wouldn't have to worry about it. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“They show up like they say. They do a good job and when you find things that they miss, they fix it. They leave the house in good condition. I used them on and off over the years. A number of years ago, they did some coat finishes for me in a couple of rooms but more recently, I just had them kind of strip down wallpaper or paint or just basic painting. The customer service is good. They hear what you say. They get back to you. If you think they haven't gotten back to you, you reach out to them and they're there. I think they're good. If I need painters again, I'd call them. Initially like probably 12 or 13 years ago, I used a decorator who was a color consultant for them. She was my decorator but she had a connection with them so that's how I started with them. I would probably go with a B+ grade for them. With painters, there is no such thing as perfect.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I think that they did a good job on the patching and I think that they did a good job on most of the painting. I noticed that I don't have moldings. The straight line at the ceiling in the kitchen where I have a bright color was not quite as steady as it might have been but that was a long line and it was difficult to do. The color was a Chinese orange. In some spots, they left sort of an orange peel look that I don't think they realized was there until it dried. I was going to call the representative back but things got away from me and I've just let it go. It can't be too troublesome. I chose them because they were in the book of best choices of various trades. I think it was the Best Pick Reports. I would probably give them a B+.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“I think it might have been last summer. We've used them twice, I believe. They did a very good job. They were neat, they were thorough, and they were fast. I thought their price was reasonable. I don't remember what it was but I think I thought it was reasonable. They only did outdoor painting on the house. I think if I recall, some of it was just done online. I don't remember it being particularly good or particularly bad to be honest so it must've been fine. I would've remembered if it was bad but I don't remember it being particularly good either. I don't really remember why I chose them. It was probably price and availability I'm guessing. The job wasn't too small; it was probably that as well. I would give them an A.”

“They do very good work. They're reasonably priced. They come when they say they will. In general, we're very pleased with them. They give you guarantees. A number of years ago, they painted the whole house. They power washed it, and they painted all the wooden doors. They have done painting on the inside. They painted windows, the garage, and the bedroom for us. They painted a door to the family room. They have done a number of jobs for us. Whoever comes and gives us the estimate, he is very nice, very efficient, and very pleasant to work with. When they did the driveway, they sprayed some of the black stuff on our garage doors, and they used their insurance to correct the problem. I would give them an A.”

Review by
09/08/2015

“It was not necessarily positive. I just don't like the work that they did, and they came back and supposedly fixed it, and I think it still looks terrible and I just never had a chance to tell them again. They painted over a light switch which I noticed, instead of taking the light switch off. They painted right over it. I mean, I don't think they did a great job, and I would not recommend them. They had to do some catching and repainting and they painted a couple other walls. I've seen better. I chose them because they had a good reputation. I guess I'll have to call them and tell them. I've just been travelling a lot and I haven't had time to do it. I'd give them a C.”

Review by

“We used them for our kitchen. I think it was just our kitchen, but they did a fantastic job and then like five years later, I called them back to do my daughter's room. They do really good work. They come with enough workers. They get it done when they say they're going to get it done. They're prompt, and they finished. The guy came out when he gave the quote. He was just really nice and personable. I think I might have just called them and took a chance. I don't think they were a recommendation. They could have been because I live in a double cul-de-sac. I might've gotten it from somebody down the road. I would call them again. I would give them an A.”

Review by

“They did work for me a year ago. They were friendly. They were careful with their work, and they had a very challenging job to do that they stayed with until it was completed well. They redid a set of windows and a front enclosed porch. It's a home from 1922, so they scraped down all the windows and walls, and they repainted and did all the fixtures. They painted three other rooms and then another back porch and balcony. They had a good reputation. I used them 12 years ago and was satisfied then. They had not the lowest, but a competitive price and a realistic estimate of the job. I would give them an A.”

“They did a lot of work for me actually. They stand behind their work. They come on time, they’re neat, they’re tidy, and they’re clean. Everybody that walks in has been very professional and very nice. They did wallpaper and painted a bathroom and bedroom. They're painting the outside of my house. They did some work for me ten years ago too. My favorite thing about their customer service is that they check on what's going on. I haven't met anybody that's been to my house that has been nasty or not nice. I've used them on a recommendation 15 years ago, the first time I used them. I would give them an A.”

“We use them all the time. I liked their work. I like the fact that they get it done on time. They are reasonably priced, and we have a history with them so I know the person in charge. They've painted the entire outside of our house, and they painted the entire inside of our house. They have put up wallpaper. They completely redid a bathroom. My favorite thing about their customer service is that they get back to me right away. We've been using them for 20 years. I don't remember how we got in touch with them. They would get an A grade.”

“DiVinci was on time, neat, and did a good job. They painted our dining room. They did the outside of our house last year. I think my daughter had used them, and they were able to come when I asked them to. I would probably say they're an A grade.”

“We still use DiVinci Painters regularly. They are one of the most versatile painters, and they do everything—they can do multi-million-dollar homes or a commercial office. That is what I like about them—I don't have to find a different painter for each type of job we have. Most recently, we worked on a school, and they did the interior there as well as the exterior of the adjacent buildings. I would recommend them. They’ve earned an A grade.”

“They worked on both the interior and the exterior, and they did a great job—everything they did was perfect. They sent really good guys who were very capable, very fast, very professional, and very polite. I didn't have any issues at all. Every time I asked for something, they came right out and did it. I would certainly recommend them. They are a grade-A business.”
