“I would like to recognize Shamo, Jose, Steve, John, and whoever worked on my house. The crew was exceptional, they could paint of The White House as far as I'm concerned.”

“They met all of my expectations, so they did not exceed any.”

Review by

“I was most satisfied with how we sat down and looked at what the problems were for this particular house. It needed a lot of work because I had to buy another house. We sat down and talked about what would be the best way to do things and we came to an agreement. I have never had any problems. I talked to him about how much it's going to cost to do various things and they have always done a good job. All of my expectations were there because we talked about it before they did the work,”

“I would give Spectrum Painting an A+.”

Review by
05/30/2017

“They painted the inside and outside of my house. They came on time every day. They were neat. They didn't make a mess in any way. They were polite when there were people at the house. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They stripped and painted my garage door and the headers for the garage door. Timely show up. Got the job done and didn't leave any mess. I'd give them an A.”

Review by

“They were painting the outside, the exterior. They were nice to work with in terms of color choice and patience. They're definitely an A.”

Review by

“Spectrum painted the exterior of my house. They were quick and neat. They did real good work. I'd give the overall experience an A+.”

Review by
05/30/2017

“They were fine. They did a good job. They painted the outside of the house. They were prompt. They were timely. They got there. They got it done and left. They were very prompt, and they didn't drag out. Also, they seemed to do a good job. I think I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“I was delighted with what they did. I got personal service. They did the job really quickly. I think they told me it would take less than a week, and it just took a few days. It's beautiful. It was exterior painting. They replaced some rotten wood and then they sanded all the loose paint and put primer and new paint on it. They did a beautiful job. I would give it an A+.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“Here's what they did well—Steve is really meticulous. In terms of his job descriptions and that kind of stuff, he was a wad of detail. It's not as automated as I would like it to be, but in terms of what he estimated and the scope of work and whatnot, he was very meticulous. The other thing they did a good job of was choosing all of these contractors from hands on folks—those guys certainly looked like they had worked together for a long time. That part worked pretty well. I'd give them all A’s. They did a fine job. This was not an easy project. This was a little bit unusual. Their billing and process and whatnot is a little screwy. I can't remember exactly why. These guys are painting contractors. They're not into automation. It was good. I would recommend them.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“I had a positive experience with them more than once. What I liked was that the owner and boss kept an eye on things. He came around quite frequently, and he kept in touch with me as well. They've done a bunch of interior paintings. They've done repairs on the walls and things. They've done some carpentry work while they were here. They've completely painted the outside of my house and then some years later, they came back and they cleaned the house and painted some trim. They've worked with me several times because they're so professional that I hired them again. They weren't cheap, but they were good. I'd give it an A. They're really good. I would definitely recommend them and I have.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“After interviewing several companies that were going to just paint over these moldy columns I have, they were the only company that recommended I get a contractor to redo the wood because they knew there was moisture underneath the wood. They weren't going to paint over it and go on their way. They got me a contractor at a reasonable price, and we redid the columns correctly. They're ethical. They're fastidious about their work. They won't just paint over anything and don't care what happens to it a couple months down the road. They're excellent. I'd give them an A just because they were very expensive.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“I liked that they did several different kinds of painting jobs and repairs, and they did a good job on all of it. They also blasted the stucco on the outside of my house, cleaned up the outside as well and outside painting of windows. I'd definitely give them an A. Cleanliness is always sort of an issue because they're guys and they don't know how to clean up anything, but mostly they did a good job. I've already recommended them a couple of times.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“The quality of the work was great. The people were really good to work with. The timing was good too. They were fast and everything like that. They were an A+. They were great.”

Review by
05/28/2017

“They were professional, came, did their job well, and so far the experience has been good with the overall quality excellent. They did exterior painting for me. They're A+.”

Review by

“They got the job done for the price they quoted in a timely fashion. I'd give them an A overall.”

“The owner of the company is very attentive to the desires of the customer. My needs were met with his assistance. I’d give them an A+ for my overall experience.”

Review by
05/24/2016

“Spectrum Painting was great. Steve Cleary, the owner, was really good. He only recommended painting that needed to be painted. The crew did a really good job; they cleaned up every day and came back to touch up all of the areas needing it. So when everything was done, it was a really good-looking, professional job. I’d give them A+ grade.”

Review by
05/24/2016

“We’ve had a long-term relationship using them. This time I’d give them a B+. I had an issue with getting them to spend a full day painting. They basically wanted to come in, work two or three hours, and then leave. The painter was not here consistently, and that makes it take longer.”

Review by
05/24/2016

“It was good. They completed the job I asked them to do. I’d give them a B for my overall experience. I had a couple of minor issues. It wasn’t perfect. Nothing is perfect.”

Review by
05/19/2016

“They were thorough, friendly, and punctual; I don’t know what else I could ask for. They did the exterior painting of my home, garage, and a couple of interior rooms. They deserve an A.”

Review by
05/19/2016

“They painted the entire exterior of my house and an ironwork fence. They  were great. There were delays in starting, but they kept me informed about those along the way. In a nutshell, they did an excellent quality job. I’d give them an A+.”

Review by
05/19/2016

Review by
05/19/2016

“They  were great. I think they did an excellent job painting for me. They did exactly what they promised and honored their quote—they are a very trusting group. They were very, very good. I was told that they’d come on a certain day, but they didn’t. However, when I asked, he apologized for getting held behind. So he came the next day, and I have no complaints. I’d give them an A for sure.”

Review by
05/19/2016

“Their crew was very polite and clean. They left the place spotless when they finished, and even made sure to not let my cat outside. They were really great, but it was not the first time they worked for me. They’ve painted my bedroom, my bathroom, some touchup work, and repairs around the house. This time, they installed custom-made crown molding in my bedroom; however, I was very picky and I didn’t quite know what I wanted. It took us a while to figure out how to do it, but they did and it’s beautiful. They earned an A.”

Review by
05/19/2016

“I liked the timeliness. They painted in my kitchen and family room. I’d give them a B+.”

Review by
05/19/2016

“I think they do good work. Steve Cleary, the owner, is excellent, but he didn’t do the job the way my husband wanted it done. My husband was the one that was mostly disappointed. I’d give them B- for my overall experience.”

“I got Spectrum from Best Pick Reports. They actually, the whole thing, the first guy who came out was right on time and efficient with his time, very knowledgeable, assessed the needs that I had quickly and then said he'd take it from there. The follow-up—it was a couple weeks before I heard from him, which was a little longer than I thought, but if I'm giving the assessment I'd give him an A+. When they came out the worker was great. They did a great job. The price was reasonable. Everything about them was good. I'd recommend them. They did exterior painting work for me. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
11/16/2015

“They were always very prompt. They did everything they said they were going to do, did it very promptly and very well. They redid my garage. They did some remodeling in the garage for me and painted it. I would recommend the company to family and friends. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
11/16/2015

“I used Spectrum Painting. They did a fine job. They did a good job. They did everything I wanted. There were no problems.”

Review by

“I would give Spectrum Painting an A- rating.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They painted my house, and they worked in a great amount of detail. They did a full exterior job and some interior work. I chose them based on a recommendation, and I would recommend them as well. I'd give them an A grade.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Spectrum Painting was prompt and attentive, and they did great work. They did a refinishing project for my front door. I heard of them because they've been around the neighborhood for a long time. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They were prompt and on time, and they did the job they said they would do at the price they originally quoted. I was very happy. They took care of some doors and outside windows for me. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Spectrum Painting did a terrific job. They're very timely and careful. They painted all of our walls, including the 20-foot walls in our living room. They definitely deserve an A grade.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Spectrum Painting did interior painting throughout the entire house. They were professional and straightforward, and I would recommend them. I'd say they’re an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Spectrum Painting was great—they did good work. They worked on the whole house. I heard about them through a referral. Things took just a little bit longer than we had initially planned, but that had to do with the previous paint that was on there—it wasn't their problem.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Well I mean they just, they were very neat. They were very neat. Everybody's very nice and trustworthy. They're not the cheapest place but they do a good job in terms of quality. They just painted my interior and exterior of the house. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They do an amazing, incredible job, and I cannot say enough good things about them. They replaced some rotted wood and painted the exterior of my house. I've used them several times and so have my daughter and a bunch of my clients. They're an A+ company.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“I liked the quality of their service, and I liked their honesty and integrity. We’ve had them do outdoor painting—they painted the house and then refinished the front door. I chose them because of referrals from friends that have used them. They’re A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“The owner was very engaged in the process. He was at the site daily and kept a close eye on things. The workmanship was good, and project was done within a reasonable time frame given the complexity of it. They did more than just painting; they did reconstruction of my eaves, and then they painted both those and the garage door. I would give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They basically did what they said they were going to do, and they were very thorough. They completed the work when they said they were going to be finished, and there wasn't pressure for upcharging. They just did a good job. They sealed all the cedar that we have installed on the exterior of the house. I'd give Spectrum Painting an A—they were great.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Spectrum Painting does beautiful work. They're honest and wonderful. I've been using them for nearly 30 years, and I would never use anyone else. The owner, Steve Cleary, is a magnificent man. They pressure washed our wooden porch, refinished our mahogany front door, and did some touch-up painting inside. I'd give them a triple A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They were prompt, thorough, and they finished the job. It wasn't an easy task and they did a good job. Previously they actually painted the exterior of the house. In this case, they removed wallpaper that had been there for twenty years and they textured the walls and got it ready for paint. I had used them for my house several times. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They were great. I really appreciated, well actually since then we've been able to call them and we needed a ladder to hang some pictures and we didn't have it, so I was like, hey can we rent a ladder from you? They said, no you can use it for free. So it's just been a good relationship rather than just the one time job so we're actually going to call them back to do some more work for us this summer. They just did interior walls for our entire house and our kitchen cabinets. My sister and her mother-in-law both used them so it was a referral. I would give them an A. It was a beautiful job, but they did leave some like few paint splatters and things so we had to kind of go through and scratch them off a little bit but it wasn't that big of a deal but you know, I guess that was one thing that would fail them from getting an A+, that was it.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“We used Spectrum Painting back in January and they did a very good job and their prices were reasonable and we were very satisfied with their service. We had a flood in our house and so they came in and did sheetrock repair. We had over 16 holes in our walls and they sheetrocked everything and floated and paint and then we had several rooms repainted. They painted our, repainted some of our trim. We had new trim put around our windows and some chair molding put in some of our bathrooms and so they painted all of that. We had seen so we had seen a lot of our neighbors using their services and so we called them and got a quote. We had probably about three companies that we called to get a quote and so price was one of the determining factors but not the number one. They knew my brother who's a remodeler and so I also called my brother and he had really good things to say about them because he had used them in the past. We had one issue with them. I'm trying to remember what that was. I don't think it was, oh I do remember. I don't know if that's worth downgrading them though. I'd give them an excellent grade.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They painted the exterior of my house, my wrought iron fence, and my detached garage. I got the quote promptly, and they came in and did what they said they were going to do. When the work was done, I thought it was excellent. Usually, when you have something done and then you walk around, you see things you don’t like, but that wasn't the case at all—they just did an excellent job. They were in and out, so I was very happy with them. I would rate them as an A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“We've had a lot of painting work done. They were on time and on budget, and we didn't have to do much supervision. I was traveling during the time they were working on the project. Everything worked well, and I didn't have to call them back to do any additional work or touch-ups. The quality was good as well. It was interior work. I believe Spectrum Painting was a recommendation from a real estate agent.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They did high-quality work. They have a long history of doing painting work for me dating back almost 20 years, and I have always been pleased with the work that Steve and his crews do for me. They repainted the exterior of my house in February of this year. I used them because I've had numerous positive experiences, and I would highly recommend them. I would give them an A—they’re excellent.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They were very courteous and timely, and the painting was done beautifully. They painted a living room, a dining room, an entry hall, a closet, a breakfast room, and a hallway to the back bedroom. They had to do a few touch-ups with sheetrock, too. I've been using them for ten years or more; I've had a couple of houses in that period of time, and they've always done a great job. I would recommend Spectrum Painting, and I would give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They're wonderful. They were very attentive to detail and very responsive to our needs. They came in and found some areas that we didn't realize needed to be repaired, and they were very thorough in how they discussed it with us. We've used them for about 25 years. They painted the exterior of our house. We found out about them because they do a lot of work in our neighborhood, so our neighbors referred us to them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They did a very good job with the painting—it looks so nice. They were careful to find out exactly what I wanted, they cleaned up beautifully, and they took great care to protect everything while they were painting. They did interior painting of an entire room, with trim and everything, and some carpentry. I heard about them through people I know. They were a recommendation from other satisfied customers. I'd give them an A+.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“Eventually it was a positive experience. We had some major complications and he came in and had to redo. And he did, he did come in and redo it. It's hard because I'm conflicted because it started out really, it started out fine and then it got really bad. We ended up having to fire his painter over the whole incident, but I will say he was very attentive. I mean as far as when everything went wrong he made sure he came over and made it right so and then a second set of painters did a much better job. It was indoor painting. They also did wallpaper removal. I would say a B.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They seemed to do a good job. I mean, hire them to do a job, as long as they do it fairly and promptly and well, then that's what you want. It was an exterior paint job. I'd probably give them a B. A few little things around the edges that weren't done correct and had to get them to redo and it took a little while to get them out. Just minor stuff, not major stuff.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“I'm still at looking at spots where they missed. They came back once. The gentleman who owns the company is a nice guy. I was sure that I could do just as well. I wasn't pleased. They did inside painting. I chose them because he told me he was quality and I sometimes prefer to pay a little more for quality. They were responsive when I called them, but I just got fed up with them and told me not to come back. They sent me a check for $50 to make me happy and I didn't cash it. I'd give them a C for the overall experience.”

Review by
05/18/2015

“They were very clean and cleaned up after they left the job. They did walls, caulking, and trim painting. I'd give them a D. I wouldn't use them again. They will not stand behind any of their caulk work. The caulking failed after four months and they refuse to warranty any caulk work. They refuse to stand behind any of their product is the bottom line, as well as overcharged.”

Review by
05/07/2015

“They were punctual, and they certainly cleaned up. Anything that I needed or noticed as far as touch-ups, they went back and fixed. They painted outside in the back, and they did a good job with that. They also did the second floor on the inside. They're an A+ business.”

Review by
04/29/2015

“I had a positive experience working with the owner. I did not have a positive experience working with the painters. They just did not complete the work. They never came and did some finishing stuff. They did the work. They didn't complete some of the small things that needed to be done. It was two bedrooms. They didn't paint over some patches. I would probably grade them as a B-. I would not recommend them.”

Review by
04/28/2015

“Spectrum Painting did an excellent job. They were very cooperative—they gave me the price, and they did the work. They did exterior painting work on a townhouse complex, and we also had wooden attic vents that were all decayed and needed to be replaced, so they rebuilt those. Some of them they could order, and some they had to custom make. They replaced those, and then they painted all the trim, the doors, and the garages. They did a very nice job. Their work was A+.”
