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.”

“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.”

“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+.”

“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+.”

“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+.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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+.”

“They did both interior and exterior painting. Spectrum Painting deserves an A+.”

“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.”

“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.”

“They did a good job. They did the right paint job for my windows, so I'd grade them an A.”

“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.”

“I had a positive experience with Spectrum Painting—they deserve an A.”

“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.”

“That was great. They did a great job, and I was very pleased with it.”

“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.”

“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.”

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

“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.”

“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+.”

“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.”

“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.”

“Spectrum Painting did good painting work on the exterior of the house. Their customer service was excellent, and I didn't have to call them back about anything. I would recommend them. They're A+.”

“Spectrum Painting was excellent. I think I heard about them in the Best Pick Reports. They sanded down and repainted our garage door. They had excellent customer service. They get an A from us.”

“I had very good service with them. They did exterior painting, and they also fixed some wood rot. Their customer service was excellent, and I didn't have any reasons to call them back. I am a real estate agent, and I have already recommended them to other agents in my office. I think they deserve an A.”

“I actually got Spectrum out of the Best Pick Reports. They painted and refinished my front door, and then they painted a lot of the fine wood trim inside. I have a two-story entryway, and there was some water damage, so they repaired some sheetrock and painted the ceiling there, which was complicated. They said they would be there at eight, and they were there at eight. They said they would be finished in three days to five days, and they were. I thought the guys were just really professional, knew what they were doing, and did a great job. The work has held up. They get an A.”

“I would give Spectrum Painting an A grade.”

“They were very conscientiousness about what they did. They did a good job protecting other things in an area where they working. We'd previously gotten a quote from them to do the outside of our house, but we didn't use them, which was a mistake. This time, we decided to use them, and we were very pleased. Spectrum Painting earned an A.”

“They painted the entire exterior of my house, and they did some woodwork here and there too. They took their time and did it right, and it was a good job. I think I heard about them through a friend. I'd give them an A.”

“Spectrum Painting does a great job. We have worked with them quite a number of times. I would rate them as an A.”

“They're really good. We've used them several times. They did painting inside and out as well as sanded and stained shutters. They did a lot of stuff. I found out about the company 15 or 20 years ago, and they did stuff at my old house too. I would give them an A.”

“Spectrum painted the outside of the house, and they did the scraping. They did a good job on that. Then, they spray painted most of the spots that were hard to get to. They did it all within a week, and we were completely satisfied with their work. They had painted our house ten years ago as well. They get an A from us.”

“They did a good job. They got to the job on time, and they did a professional job cleaning up. The quality of their work and their customer service were good. They painted the exterior of my home, and I didn't have to call them back about anything. I would recommend them. They're an A.”

“Spectrum Painting's work was done on time, and it was done right. They were very clean. It was a good experience, and their customer service was very good too. There were no issues. They deserve an A.”

“Spectrum Painting painted two or three rooms and a closet, and they did a very good job. They came back to fix a few mistakes we found, so all is well. I would rate them as an A.”

“We knew during the estimate that it would be significantly worse once the gutters where taken down and you could actually see the wood damage. I really appreciated that Steve Cleary, the owner, was very, very serious about pointing everything out to us before he just went ahead without telling us about the extra cost. Step by step, he told us how much more it would be. I would give them an A.”

“Spectrum is the most professional, honest, and high-quality painting company in the city. They painted the inside of our whole house, and they did a great job. They are very meticulous, and Steve Cleary is fantastic. I'd give them an A+.”

“They painted some sections on the outside of our house, and it was excellent service. I would certainly recommend them. They're A+.”

“I thought highly of them. They did painting on the exterior. They didn't get paint anywhere it should not have been. Their cleanup was very good. This was not the first time I had Spectrum do painting for me. I would give them an A+.”

“Spectrum Painting did work for me. They were very neat in what they did, they were fast, and so far, it's holding up pretty good. They did interior work. They had good attention to detail. My wife used them, so that is why I used them. I would invite them back to my home. I think they just did a fantastic job, and we used them once before. I'd give them an A.”

“Spectrum did interior painting. They did a good job, and everything turned out well. They cleaned up everything perfectly and were easy to deal with. Everything was great, including customer service and scheduling. They did work for me before. I would give Spectrum Painting an A grade.”

“We found them through the Best Pick Reports. The owner was very helpful, and the work crews were great. They were very attentive to detail in that they didn't go really fast and just try to get it done. They took their time and really did a good job. They responded to my request for service in a timely fashion. I've used them twice. The first time was a few years ago, and the second time I went right back to them. There was no need for any follow-up, none at all. They painted several rooms, and they touched up when I had them come back the second time. I would give them an A.”

“We got work done by Spectrum Painting. It was great. He was only here a couple days—it didn't take him long to do what we needed done. We had a few outside window trimmings replaced and pressure washed, and we had the back of the house repainted. He finished in a reasonable amount of time. I would recommend the company. Excellent, I would give them an A+.”

“Looks like they did a good job, and they did what they said they were going to do. They painted several rooms. The time frame it took them to do it and the cleanup were good—it was complete. We picked them from Best Pick Reports. In the future, if needed, I would use their service again. I think it was an A+.”

“They were on time, nice, and they cleaned up after themselves. They painted our downstairs. I was satisfied with the quality of the painting. It was not the first time I used them. I give them an A+. They just did a good job. I would use them again.”

“They did a good job on the exterior work. This was the first time that I used them. They didn't get any paint where it should not have been. It was an A+.”

“They were always punctual. They did everything they said they were going to do and did a good job. They cleaned up after themselves—I have no complaints. They painted the house and trim outside. Their customer service is just fine. The paint job is holding up just great. It's an A+.”

“We thought the work done by Spectrum Painting was good. They were here when they were supposed to be here and seemed to do a good job. They painted the outside of our house. They paid close attention to the small details. The workers were fine. I would recommend Spectrum Painting and give them an A grade.”

“The work Spectrum Painting did was good quality, and it was completed on time. No complaints. They painted the outside. They did offer carpentry work, but I decided not to go with it—I didn't need it at the time. That was the first time that I used them. Someone in the neighborhood recommended them. They met my expectations. I think I would give them an A.”

“They were professional, clean, and did what they said they were going to do. I got other estimates besides theirs, and they got back to me right away. They were very professional—that's what stood out. They painted my entire outside of the house and redid my wood front door. This was my first occasion to use them as well. Their cleanup was very good. I felt like they also paid attention to detail. The technicians had a good attitude. They explained everything. I give it an A. I would tell my neighbors to use them and that they're a good company to go with.”

“Each day they were there, there wasn't a big mess. They found something on our roof, sent me a picture, and said, 'Hey, you may want to take a look at this.' So they were just very conscientious. They did what they said they were going to do. They were absolutely as advertised, and they just exceeded our expectations. It was a referral from my parents. I used them mainly because my parents had such a good experience with them. This is the type of company I would consider using again. I would give them an A.”

“We went with Spectrum for painting. My experience with them was good. They did what they said they would do. The workers were courteous and on time. They were respectful and seemed knowledgeable. I was fine with the quality of work that was completed. I would recommend them.”

“They did a very good job of painting the exterior of the house and performing what they said they would do. They did a lot of extra work to make sure they got the paint in the cracks and took that extra step to make sure it looked good. If we needed any changes, those were done and taken care of on a good basis. They kept the places clean after they were done each day, and we're very appreciative of that. Their response time was OK. I haven't noticed any chipping—a little bit on a metal door, but it was the kind of stuff I would expect. As far as the overall job, it was really good. There is no discoloration or anything like that. I would give them about an A-.”

“Spectrum Painting is the best in town. I would use nobody else. When I need painting—big or small—I call Steve Cleary. I trust him, and his company does everything. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had a very positive experience with Spectrum Painting. They're very clean and very fast. I had three different shades of the same color in different rooms, and they were really good about matching perfectly. They were top-notch—A+.”

“Spectrum Painting was excellent. They did exterior painting as well as carpentry work. We've used them at least twice because we knew we could count on them. They're A+.”

“They painted the entire outside of my house, and it was high-quality service. They paid attention to detail well, and everything was clean and taken care of. I would use them again.”

“The project with Spectrum Painting was good. It was an exterior painting job. We had a little bit of a complicated door request, so I appreciated their willingness to work with us in terms of the price and in terms of customizing the antique glass that our door has. They completely sanded down the door and then painted it. Their customer service was very good, and they were very responsive—I could ask questions and expect a response fairly quickly. The painters were very nice and easy to communicate with, too. Really a pleasure to work with. I'll give them an A rating, absolutely.”

“Spectrum Painting did some interior painting for me. We had two houses—one they painted the exterior, and the other they painted the interior. I think it took three or four days to finish each job. For the interior painting they did, I never really saw the finished results; they did it after I moved out of my house. But their customer service was good. The owner dealt directly with the clients and was very thorough. I'd recommend them. The work they did should get an A.”

“We used Spectrum Painting for painting the inside of our whole house—over thirteen rooms, if you count closets. I feel good about the overall job. They brought in a whole team of people. They worked clean, and they cleaned up every day; after they had left, they didn't leave any junk. They came every day—there was none of this 'no show' business. They followed up as it went along, and they came back, or at least offered to come back, if there were any gouges or anything. They said they would come back and repair those at no cost. Just really good service. It was just a straightforward paint job, and I'm very happy with it.”

“I thought Spectrum Painting's painters were quite professional. They did a good job. It was interior painting, and the work looks good. Also, they picked up after themselves. They were just tidy and to the point, so I'd use them again, absolutely. I would give them an A+.”

“Spectrum did good. They were always timely and friendly, and they did what they said they were going to do. They've done both interior and exterior painting for us in the last year. The interior painting probably took a week or two, and the painters who came out to do that were professionals—A+ for those guys. I'd use them again for more projects, absolutely.”

“I had a good experience with Spectrum Painting. It was an interior paint job. They were very careful, and they took care of our place like it was their own house. There were no drops of paint anywhere. The workers were very good. It was my first time using them, but I'd definitely use them again in the future. The job took about a week to complete, and the work deserves an A+.”

“Spectrum Painting did exterior painting for me, and it was a job well done. They did quality work. It was my first time using them, and I've already used them again since. The painters who came out were very professional and detail oriented. They cleaned up after themselves, too. I'd like to give them an A+.”

“They had really good customer service, and they were very professional. They discussed the job before we started and went over the contract. It was just a very thorough, professional job. They were thorough when they were setting up to do their work, and they made sure that when they finished, they came back and cleaned anything up that was overlooked. It was all good. They painted the interior of my house, but they didn't just paint; they also refinished a couple of walls that needed removal of the existing wood and replacement of new sheetrock. They did the entire inside of the house. The work they did, I'll give them an A+ for all that.”

“I liked everything they did. The quality of their workmanship, the estimated time frame, the cleanup, and the price were all good. They changed the placement of the drywall. I had a narrow niche that I wanted to be widened. They completed everything to my satisfaction. There was just one worker, and he was very competent. I think the job took two full days, and it was well done. They get an A grade.”

“Spectrum Painting gets an A grade. Their work was fine, and I don't have any complaints.”
