“Brian was excellent. His team did a great job. They did outside painting and a little inside—mostly outside. It was a pretty substantial job, because it was a four-story townhouse. He had two sides plus a roof area to do. Brian did a wonderful job, and then there was maybe two rooms or three rooms inside that we had him do as well. I would grade the overall experience A+. They showed up on time. They got it done in three days and then were gone.”

“They remodeled my bathroom. They did an excellent job at that. They did painting as part of the remodel. They painted the walls and the ceiling, and they also painted my master bedroom closet and the trim. They did a lot in the master bedroom as part of the remodel. They did an excellent job. They did a really, really good job painting. They didn't have to tape anything, and they did a terrific job. I would grade the overall experience A. I've recommended them all over the place.”

“Brian has been working for me for over ten years, so it's not like he's new to me, and that's why I use him—he's always provided me with excellent service. On this particular project, they did interior painting. In the past I've used them for exterior painting as well. They get an A+. I recommend them all the time.”

“It was a good experience, and we were satisfied with the results. I had no complaints, they did excellent work, and I would recommend them.”

“They did a really good job. I've recommended them to a few people. I think they're definitely a quality outfit. They did exterior painting for me. I'd rate them A. Overall, I was very satisfied. They did excellent work, no complaints. They were good. They are a good outfit. I would use them again.”

“I liked that they worked hard, they worked quickly, and they were neat. I would grade them A+.”

“All American Painting Plus did some work a long time ago. I liked the guy that ran it. He was a pretty straight shooter, and I liked him, and I liked the foreman. They were pretty easy to work with, pretty straightforward.”

“I liked that they were professionals. They did a very good job. They did interior painting for us. They get an A overall.”

“Brian does a great job. They did exterior painting and some interior painting when I had some water damage that he helped me with. I'd give them an A+. He was on time and cleaned everything up. He did what he said he would do for the price that he said he would do it for. He didn't try to say, 'Well, you know we got to add something,' no he didn't do that. He's very friendly and very personable.”

“We've always had a positive experience with All American Painting Plus, and we've used them a number of times through the years. I like that they're right on the money on their estimates, and when they tell you they are going to do the work, they show up and do the work. They don't run over on time, and they clean up after themselves. They're A+.”

“They were extraordinary. The quality of their work was really impeccable. They were honest. We knew we had a water problem. We didn't realize the extent of it. They found it, and they tried everything in their toolkit to remedy it in the most cost-efficient way, so they were super honest. The house was impeccably clean every day when they left. It was a fairly significant job, but they were professional. They are not going to be the low-cost provider, but they are worth every penny and then some. I would grade the overall experience A+.”

“I have to admire their work. They did it in record time, and they did a beautiful job—A+. They were very pleasant. Cleaned up everything, nothing was left. They did a good job. I'd recommend them highly.”

“All American Painting Plus is very good. They earned an A+. I am very likely to recommend them.”

It looked really good at the end. They seemed very honest and responsive when I called them. They get an A+ rating.”

“It was wonderful. They painted the entire interior of a house that we had purchased and that was in need of a serious renovation. They were on time and clean, and they cleaned the house every day after they left. They stand behind their work. We did have an issue in one room where the old paint bled through, and they came and repainted the room at no additional cost. They were very friendly people—there isn't anything negative that I can say about them. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“They were punctual every day, they showed up exactly on time, and their workmanship was impeccable. I highly recommend them. I'd give them an A.”

“They did some painting, they washed the outside of the house, and they patched some holes in some wood. They did some basic touch-up stuff, too. I liked the guy that I interacted with; he was actually really helpful. He listened to what I had to say, and he was able to take care of it in a timely manner. It was done in such a way that they had to come back and fix a couple of things, and they did it right away. I had absolutely no issues. It was great. I would give them an A+.”

The time frame of when I needed things painted changed, and they were able to accommodate me. Everything was painted properly and cleaned up. It very much met my expectations. They painted a bedroom for me. I found out about them when I asked a good friend of mine who they used for painting. They get an A rating.”

“They came out right away for the estimate, and they even started on the work right away. In terms of time, they were pretty quick. They did exterior painting for our house. They did the trim and around the windows and doors—anything that wasn't brick. I would give them an A grade.”

“They got the work done on time, and they cleaned up after themselves. The place looked good afterward. They painted my basement, my upstairs, and a couple of walls on the middle floor, too. I would grade them as an A.”

“They were very, very responsive; very prompt and timely; and very polite. They painted a bedroom and a hallway and replaced and painted seven doors and some chair rail molding. I found out about All American Painting Plus through Best Pick Reports. I would give them an A rating for sure.”

“All American did a wonderful job. They were very professional and extremely reliable, and they showed up on time. They painted and restored two columns that go down the front of the porch, and they put a railing at the top. They worked very hard and got the job done really quickly. I liked everything. We'd use them again, and I would give them a quadruple A+.”

“They were awesome. I liked the main guy on the job. He made sure that every little detail was done the best way. He took care of everything, so I didn't have to worry about anything. They did interior and exterior work, and I'd give them an A+ rating.”

“It was great. All American did terrific. The main guy was really thorough, and the area was cleaned up really well. I trusted he would do a good job, and he did. They did exterior painting, and they earned an A.”

“All American Painting Plus did exterior work for me. They provided me with an extremely thorough estimate, plus copies of their business licenses, insurance, and all kind of things. They responded quickly to any questions I had. I'd give them an A.”

“Everything they did, they did a great job on. It still looks very good. They were very punctual, and they were great. I would give them an A. We've had so many contractors in here, and they are one of the ones that were outstanding.”

“It was very good—wonderful. They did the exterior trim for our house. It was good, because we have all white stucco underneath; we were worried it was going to drip, but it didn't drip at all. They did a lot of very careful work. I think the company is A-grade.”

“They did exterior painting. They were able to come out pretty quick, and they were accommodating. I couldn't stay the day that they were there, so they came back to finish up the stuff that they needed access to the house for. They came back within a few days. I'd give them an A. I had no problems.”

“They did a job for me a while back. It was satisfactory—my experience with All American Painting Plus was very good.”

“They were punctual, they did what they said they were going to do, and they were very easy to work with. The job was all interior work—it was for a condo, and it was all interior painting. I'd give them an A.”

“They did interior work. Their customer service and technical capabilities made my experience with All American Painting Plus positive. I would give them an A.”

“They have done some work for me. They are very, very good—I would hire them again.”

“They did exterior work for me. They communicated with me, saved us on time, and finished the work on time. They met my expectations. I would grade them an A.”

“All American Painting Plus did mostly exterior work. They did the deck and the outside siding—they replaced the wood and did the painting. They did a good job. They were on time, and everything was very neat and clean after they were finished. The job was really well done. One other thing I really was pleased with was that when they painted the wrong color on my steps, I asked them to change it, and they came and changed it. I would give them an A.”

“We've got a house that is cedar-sided, so the work they did for us wasn't a painting job so much as a cleaning and staining. We have been in the house for almost 25 years, and it has never looked this good. It took them substantially longer than they estimated to get the house clean—it took about a full week's worth of work. I think Mr. McCracken was surprised at that, but wanted to make sure the cleaning was thorough so that the single coat that they applied would in fact have the desired result, and it did. The house has never looked so good. Overall, I would have to give them an A.”

“They did some office painting for me back in the spring, and everything was great. They had quick service and a good turnaround—everything was good. I'd give the company an A.”

“They were on time, and they were thorough. They did some exterior work—they replaced some rotted wood trim.”

“I had a good experience with them due to their completeness and attention to detail. They did exterior painting and carpentry work, and I'd give them an A.”

A couple of months before this last job, they did about four or five interior rooms, and this particular job was on the outside of the house. They always talked to me about it beforehand; they told me how much it would cost, and they let me know whether it really needed to be done or whether it just kind of needed to be done. The same guys did the work the whole time, and they were great.”

“They did fantastic work for us. The work crew was always very timely and very conscientious. We've done both exterior and interior work with them. We have used other painters, and All American is clearly head and shoulders above the others. They did an excellent, highly professional job.”

“All American did mainly interior work, but we also had a little exterior work done on a porch railing. I liked their overall professionalism, attention to detail, and how well they cleaned up each evening. I'd give them an A.”

“They did exterior painting and replaced some wood trim on the outside of the house. They were very professional and timely—they arrived when they said they were going to arrive, they did what they said they were going to do, and the work was well done. They get an A.”

“They did wallpaper for us, and the quality was excellent. I would use All American again, and I'd give them an A. We have an attic that has a lot of tricky corners, and their wallpaper guy did a great job of getting everything done, and it's all matched and perfect.”

“I used All American for painting. They did exterior trim. The quality of the work was very good, and the technicians were excellent. I'd recommend them. They get an A+ grade.”

“They were very professional. They were very caring with all of our possessions that they had to move. They were very clean as far as cleaning up every day after their work, and there were no mistakes. Everything was done the way I would have wanted it done. They did the interior in the winter, and then in the spring, they did the exterior. They also did the shutters and the front door in December, and again, excellent. I'd give an A+ on everything.”

“They were quick and fast. They got the job done on budget, on time, and were out of here. Brian's people did a great job. I've used them for two or three jobs over a period of maybe four or five years. I give them an A+.”

“They painted a couple of rooms in the house, and they were great. This was my first time using the company. If I had a painting project in the future, I would use All American Painting. They were fine, and the paint job looked fine. I would go with an A+.”

“They did interior painting. The work was completed in the time frame I expected, and they cleaned up properly—no debris whatsoever. If the need arose, this is a company I would consider in the future. I would rate them an A.”

“They painted the inside of the house and did a bunch of drywall patching. They got there on time to start the job for me and completed it on schedule. The cleanup was very good. Give them an A.”

“They kind of did some repair work—painting on the outside and replacing the boards on my deck. My thoughts on All American Painting are good. I would say it's all positive. They were easy to work with, very professional, and courteous. I'd rate them an A.”

“Everything made it positive—the quality of work, the attention to detail of the estimate, the workers, the actual painters that came and did the work, just everything. They basically painted my entire, four-level town house—all rooms minus the ceilings. I would grade them an A.”

“I was satisfied with their quality of work. They did interior painting. They cleaned up properly to my satisfaction. I'd use them again. They'd get an A.”

“All American Painting Plus did a good job. They did painting for me. I'd grade them an A.”

“They did good, quality work and had good communication. They did interior painting for me in all the hallways and probably two rooms. I felt the quality of the work was very good. The project manager did a good job communicating what they were doing. They did a very good job of keeping out of the nonaffected areas and keeping them clean. They did a good job cleaning up afterward. They finished the work in a reasonable amount of time. This was the first time I used them, and I would use them again. It's an A.”

“All American Painting was great, and I would refer them to someone else. They were an A grade.”

“They did a great job, and I will use them again. They did some carpentry work. They replaced some rotten wood I had on the trim, and they repainted all of the wood surfaces on the outside. I used them for some interior work about six months ago. I'd rate them an A.”

“The owner came out and did the estimate and everything, and he was very good at answering all of our questions. He got back with us on estimates and everything and replied in a timely manner to our questions. That was my first time using them. I'd say they're an A-.”

“They did exterior painting on the house. I was satisfied with the service they provided. Their work quality and service were fine. I'd rate them A-.”

“They came out and gave me an estimate. They gave me several options of what they could do and led me to the option that I thought worked best, and then they accomplished that effort in a timely manner when they said they would have it done and for the price that they promised. So I was very pleased with it. They repainted my ceiling, which had some water stains from a previous roof leak, and they also replaced some insulation in the attic that had been damaged by that leak. The quality of the work was very good. It's perfect—no recurrence of the problem. I couldn't even tell they were there. I'd go with A+.”

“All American Painting did a beautiful job. I'm tickled to death with it. They worked on my porch—cleaning up the columns and painting them—and it was a fabulous job. The painter was really, really neat and clean; he didn't leave any paint or scrapings anywhere. He did a fabulous job—A+.”

“This was the second time I used All American Painting Plus. They performed work on our house previously, and it went so well, we decided to hire them again. They painted four rooms for us and did crown molding in two rooms. The quality was outstanding. I'd certainly rate them as an A+.”

“They painted the outside of my house, and the work was fantastic. The painters and the customer service were both great. I would give them an A+. They're excellent. I'd highly recommend All American Painting Plus.”

“We had our exterior trim painted just a few months ago, and we used All American Painting Plus. They were very, very good. They came ready to go; they were very accommodating with our schedule. We had to work around some travel dates, and they worked well with that. I would refer them to other people.”

“They're wonderful. They did both interior and exterior painting for me. Just the job they do is very good. Their guys are very professional. I use them for drywall and plaster, too—they do that also.”

“They did little bit of woodwork, and then they did painting—for some stuff, they sanded and stained it, but there was a certain amount of spot work around the house, including replacing some boards and stuff like that. It went well. I think the quality's fine. They were nice people, and they finished in a good amount of time. I have recommended them. I would give them an A.”

“I thought it was really good; they did a good job. They power washed the house, and then they painted all the trim for us. The quality of work was very good. They were prompt with their services. What I liked best was they did good work, and they were easy to work with. Their painters were very good. I would use them again without hesitation. I'd give them an A.”

“All American seemed professional and did a good job. They painted the interior of a condo for me four years ago. Everyone was very professional; cleaned up afterwards, no complaints. I would say they're an A.”

“I was very happy. I liked them because of the original meeting I had with them, the estimate, and all the work they did. The work was fine. I would recommend All American Painting. An A grade.”

“I absolutely think All American Painting Plus is great. I just think they're great. They're always very polite—they're prompt, they're polite, they do a good job, and they're considerate. I've even had them fix things for me that weren't—just a little thing here and there that wasn't part of the contract, but he said 'Oh, it'll be real easy to put some paint on that while we're doing this.' He's a great guy. I had them repair some siding and paint the house. The cleanup was great, perfect. They definitely started the process with a quote, and they stuck to the quote. In fact, a couple of weeks later, Brian contacted me and said he realized that the workmen may not have actually gotten to all the work that he had put on the contract, and he wanted to come back and check and make sure that everything had indeed been done. They came back, and everything had been done, but some of the boards had bowed in the meantime, and he sent them back out to fix that at no charge. They're just great. I'd give them an A+.”

“During this past year they painted our bathroom, which required some major work because paint was peeling off because of moisture and all of that. They went through and took all that out and did a really good job. First of all, they completed the job quickly. By the way, they also did another room—they did a room that was wallpapered. They took the wallpaper down and then painted the room. They were able to do most all of the work in two-and-a-half days, so it was done quickly, without any messes or anything like that. I'm just satisfied with what they did. I'd put them at an A.”

“It's been a couple of years that they worked for us—it was interior painting. They did a good job, and everything was done as we asked. I would use them again. I'd give them an A.”

“All American showed up on time and did the work that we requested, in the time they said they'd do it in. That was fine—the quality of work was very good. The painters were fine; we didn't have a lot done, but what we had done was fine. We had trim painted, and I think the garage door and that sort of thing. The quality of it was just fine. I would give them an A+.”

“They were excellent. Either the owner or the manager was very, very good and had a great team—very responsive. They worked with us very well. It was a small job, and I just wanted them to paint the ceilings, which is kind of a challenge because I already had the walls painted, but they were very accommodating with the schedules and the service. I'm really happy with work. They painted the ceilings in five rooms. The cleanup was very good—didn't leave a trace of paint or residue or anything; it was great. It was an A+ job.”

“All American Painting replaced wood outside for me, on a chimney; they primed and painted that, and then they replaced wood under a window, and they primed and painted that. They painted inside for me, and they painted railings for me outside. The quality of work was excellent. The crew was delightful, and the time frame that they gave me was adequate. I'd give them an A+.”

“They painted the exterior of my house. The work that they did was very good. They finished in a timely manner for me. Their painters were very professional. They were clean—they cleaned up their mess. I would give them an A.”

“It was very good, a very good experience. All American painted the interior of my house. The quality of the work was good. I dealt with the painters, and they were very good, and they were prompt with their services. They just did a very nice job, they did it quickly, and they left. I'll give them an A.”

“They were good guys. They were easy to work with, easy to deal with, and they were nice people. The quality of the work was very good; they went the extra mile to make things happen. They repainted our entire condo on the inside. They finished everything in a reasonable amount of time. They were great. I would give them an A+ across the board.”

“All American Painting did a good job. They did outside painting, the whole house. We've used them a couple of times. I think they did good work. I dealt with Brian, the owner. I really didn't have much dealings with the painters, but everything was fine. The work was completed, and I didn't have any problems. So, I guess that makes them an A+.”

“It was probably about three years ago that they did some painting for me, and it seems to have worked out. I would use them and might recommend them as well. I don't having problem giving them an A.”

“All American Painting Plus did the exterior trim and painted the house. They were right on schedule, their estimate was very good, and they completed it on time. The initial estimate didn't change after they finished the job. The cleanup was good, very good. That was the first time I had used them, and I would use them again. I would give them an A.”

“Working with All American was good. We have a property manager who takes care of the house, but I never had a problem with any of the painting that was done; it was good. I do know they helped me paint our trim while I was living there, and they could have done the painting on the inside, too, after we had moved out and our property manager had to get it ready for rental. Everything went OK for me, I guess—I've never had any complaints with any of the work that I've had done there. I'd give them a high grade just because I never had any issues. A+.”
