“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.”

“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 bunch of work. They did a great job. They've worked for me a long time, they do great painting, they've done interior painting and exterior painting. I would grade them an A+. I would use them again.”

Without a doubt they were on time.”

“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 would give them an A rating.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“I thought they were very good. I think they're probably an A.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“We used DiVinci Painters for our kitchen, and they did a fantastic job. Then, five years later, I called them back to do my daughter's room. They do really good work, come with enough workers, and get it done when they say they're going to get it done. I would call them again, and I would give them an A.”

“DiVinci Painters did a lot of work for me. They stand behind their work, they come on time, and they're neat and tidy. Everybody that's walked in has been very professional and very nice. They did wallpaper and painted a bathroom and bedroom, and they're painting the outside of my house. My favorite thing about their customer service is that they check on what's going on. I would give them an A.”

“We've always used DiVinci, and they're great—they're the only painters that I will use. We've been using them for 15 years.”

“They painted the whole exterior of the house for me, and they covered all the imperfections and bad places in the paint. I have no complaints; everything has held up well so far. I chose their service because I had used them once before. I'd give them an A+ grade.”

“DiVinci Painters did interior painting, and everything was great. The painting is holding up fine. They were friendly, neat, and efficient, and they did a wonderful job. They were a lifesaver—I couldn't say more for them. They're an A+ company.”

“They did interior painting. They were very responsive, and they did good work. I'd use their service again. I found them in Best Pick Reports. I would say DiVinci Painters gets an A.”

“DiVinci Painters was terrific. They did exterior painting. They were prompt, clean, efficient, and less than intrusive, so they were good. I heard about the company from one of my contractors, and I'd absolutely rate them as an A.”

“They were a nice company to deal with, and they did the work very nicely—everything was perfect. I had a positive experience with the people; they were very accommodating and very professional. Somebody recommended them to me. My expectations were met, and I didn't have to clean up anything.”

“DiVinci Painters did the exterior for me. They were very professional and efficient, and they did quality work. The cleanup was handled very well; they were very thorough. I would give them an A grade.”

“The gentleman who came over from DiVinci Painters was a really good guy, and he was really good at what he did. He painted a bedroom. He came in and did his job, and did it faster than he thought he was going to, which is always fantastic. I was really happy with the quality of the job as well. I would use him again. They deserve an A.”

“They did interior painting work over pretty much the entire house and the trim, and they stained the rear deck. We had a great experience, and everything turned out really well. Everyone was very personable and outgoing, and they did a good job. The work is holding up great. I'd highly recommend them, and I'd give them an A.”

“DiVinci Painters has done both interior and exterior painting for us. They're great. They just do excellent work. They are detailed oriented, and they don't finish it until we are 100 percent happy. We have had no issues. Their customer service is great, and Jim Berardi is always pleasant to deal with. I would recommend them, and I have. I would give them an A.”

“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.”

“They did interior painting over almost the whole house. They were on time, and they completed the job well. Their customer service was very good, too. I would recommend DiVinci Painters, and I'd give them an excellent rating.”

“They did both interior and exterior work. They were very good, and they did excellent work. I liked that they were professional, clean, and courteous. Their customer service was excellent, too. I would absolutely recommend them—I have. I'd give them an A, for sure.”

“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 painted the exterior of the house. They did very good work. My father was an architect, and he had them do the work, so I knew they'd be good. I'd say they get an A+.”

“I've been dealing with homeownership since I was 25, and I've been in the same area as DiVinci Painters, so I had a good idea of who was good. I would give them an A+ rating.”

“DiVinci Painters was very good. They did a reasonable job, they had suggestions about which brands of paint to use, and they were very pleasant about listening to everything that we had to say. I would use them in the future, and I'd give them an A.”

“We've used them a couple of times before. We did a lot of cleanup and trim on the house, which hadn't been painted much in 20 years. We did some interior painting, too. They are as clean and quiet as possible when they were in the house, and the work is performed well and as promised. I found the company through a friend of my wife. They get an A in my book.”

“They painted a few rooms in the interior of the house. They were clean and quick, and they did a good job. All the scheduling went smoothly, and all the workers seemed neat and clean—they put down drop cloths. We heard about them because they had done work for a friend of ours, and he recommended them. I'd give them an A.”

“I remember doing work with DiVinci Painters two years ago. They did a great job—it was A+ work. We'd had them do work before, so we went back to them.”

“They painted the side of the house. We called them because we had used them once before for the inside. They did nice, good work, and I've been satisfied with it since it was completed. After they did the inside, they were supposed to do the exterior the next year, but things got botched up on their end. I would give them an A.”

“They patched the underside of the eaves of my house. They were prompt and timely, and they performed as they promised, so I was satisfied. The customer service was all fine. I called them based on a reference, and they earned an A.”

“DiVinci Painters was fine. There was a problem with peeling paint, and they came back eight months later and resolved it. An A grade works for them.”
