“The first person I encountered did a very thorough job of taking down what had to be done. The last individual (project mgr ?) responded to the problem of paint on our wallpaper and resolved the problem.”

“I liked everything about them—the estimate, that they sent someone over to pick colors with me; it was great. The painters did a good job, but I didn't think they totally finished the job. They should have come in and had someone watch to make sure that the painters did what they were supposed to do. The stuff they did—some of it was good, and some of it was not finished.”

“There were certain employees that know their business a bit better than others as they have been doing it longer. I had friends who recommended their main painters and though we had to wait a bit on his availability, it was worth it.”

Review by

“We have used Home Works Painting on many past projects and loved the professionalism and attention to detail. Unfortunately, this last project fell short of our expectations. The team didn't cover the floor in the laundry room and it appears something was spilled and poorly cleaned up. Also there were paint drips on the floor. They painted completely over the switches and plates in the bedroom, yet didn't paint the covers in the laundry room. They didn't re-install the shelf in the b/r. They didn't patch a few holes in the l/r. They didn't paint the outer edges of the trim in either room, they didn't seal/silicone gaps between the trim and the walls. Overall very poor attention to detail.”

“They were great. When we called and were unhappy, they took ownership over not having sent out an estimator. They sent a man out to finish the job, and we didn't have to pay extra. That was really great of them. Their estimator took ownership of not understanding the project. As a customer, I would go back to them again. It was a learning experience for all of us.”

“Really thought they did a super job painting the entire interior of our Virginia home. It wasn't until we moved out of state, bought another home and had it painted that we realized the outstanding quality of the Home Works crew!! Hands down they deliver the most professional job you could ever imagine.”

“They exceeded my expectations with everything. I really felt reassured by Jason's communications. It was frequent and he let me know in advance. It was colder than it was expected to be in early spring and he contacted me to assure me approximately when the job would be done. That is a critical component to know what the expectations are. Because this is a multi-family residence I did not always see them on site. They were really strong all around with that. He is critical and is a good person to be in touch with. We contracted with them in the fall and they were unable to do it. It was not until the spring. We anticipated in the fall but things happen and the weather gets colder. It was quite a long time until work was done from the time was started.”

Review by

“They did some power washing and painted the trim. They were on time, and did the work in the estimated time span. They cleaned up after themselves. It was just what one would expect from a professional outfit. Overall, I'd give them a solid A. The only reason that I don’t give them an A+ is simply some things beyond their control. Some of the water seeped out from behind some gutters after they had finished power washing and started painting. They did leave some streaks, but quite frankly you can’t go back to power washing once you’ve started painting. I’d give them a good, solid A. They not only did the trim to the color and match the color perfectly, but when they did the garage door, they took the garage up by steps and painted in between the panel. So when the garage door opens, there is not a flash of white. I’ve seen some painters who just would tape off and spray the exterior, and when it goes up and down you can see the flashes of the original color underneath. They didn’t do that. Home Works Painting made sure about the part that was behind the flashing when it was down. It was a very thorough job and for that I’d give them an A+. It would have satisfied my father, the colonel. They called in advance, and gave us a good estimate. From the first guy out to do the estimate to the last guy saying, ‘You want to walk around and look at everything we did?’ It was all great. They were right on time. Home Work Paintings were kind enough to call before they showed up at the front door just to give us a head’s up. When they left, you wouldn’t have known they were here other than the fact that the house was clean and the paint wash shiny. We already recommended them.”

“Home Works Painting came out and power washed an existing deck. After they got done, and they worked really hard, they noticed that there were some real shiny spots where they put down the transparent stain. They just never went away. They got the head guy to come out and take a look at it. He said he had talked to the folks who made the paint, and they were going to replace the paint. He said there was something wrong and they were just going to redo the whole thing for me, and they did. They charged nothing. Home Works Painting could have just done a few boards or something like that and did a makeover, but they decided to do the whole thing again and make it totally right. This was through no real fault of their own, and that is what made this a real positive experience. I'd give them an A for the overall experience. I thought they did a great job. They were very careful and meticulous. When you do painting, you can get paint all over the place. They didn’t. Home Work Paintings knew what they were doing. The quality of the work was very good. They were always here during the day, at the general time they said they would be here. They cleaned up after themselves very well. The team leader that came out, the foreman, really knew what he was doing. He knew the product, and was the one that first spotted the problem with the paint. He looked at it and he looked at it and said he didn’t think it was going to change. He knew a lot about the wood. I’ve recommended them to several people.”

Review by
10/24/2017

“I had a very positive experience with them. Once they understood what needed to get done, I thought they were fantastic. I can’t remember the supervisor who was here, but he was just so great. When I said something, he would say, ‘Oh yeah, we’ll do that immediately.’ They did painting for me. I had a little bit of gapping at the windows and they did that. They painted my entire house. I'd give them A+.”

Review by

“They have done multiple work for me, and just did a good job in a timely manner. We had to do a bunch of drywall repair and the area had a lot of damage. So, it was drywall and painting. I'd give them an A. We have already recommended them to others.”

Review by
10/24/2017

“They're outstanding. I think they're really superb in the field. They are very attentive to the needs of the customer, and are very careful about their procedural application of the paint. I had my ceiling painted. I'd give them A+.”

“We love those guys. I liked professionalism and the work that they completed. They were on time. Even the person that answered the phone, they were great. Everybody that worked with us was great. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“I liked the end result and the quality of the work. I am not too pleased with the cost. What happened with the company is that they sent an estimator and the estimator came up with a figure of $10,000. He was going to do this and he was going to do that and he was going to do that. I scheduled the painting and the work prior to me refinishing or replacing the roof. I needed to do it in a timely timeframe. I needed to do the painting and I needed to do the rotten wood replacement and all of that. So when the roofers came, they just needed to top the house with the new roof and then everything would be immaculate. So, Home Works Painting gave me an estimate of around $7,000. We agreed and I said we could go with that. Then I got a phone call from a person from Home Works, and they told me the estimate was erroneous. They said they fired him because he was giving estimates that were not accurate, and he was no longer with them. The cost now would be $11,000. This was almost 45 percent more than what we had agreed to. He basically told me to take it or leave it. He said, ‘If you don’t take it, we will refund your deposit you have made,’ or something like that. I thought, ‘Take it or leave it. Are you kidding me? I need to do my painting because I have another work scheduled after you guys. I am on a schedule.’ So, I swallowed my pride. They weren’t ripping me off or anything like that. I felt like I was getting a bait and switch. If I told them I wouldn’t take that, I would have to go and find another supplier, start all over getting estimates, and coming to reassessment. I didn’t know what I’m going to end up with, with another supplier. The time is going to pass by, and then the roof is going to be put in place, and the painters are going to come to replace the roof. We have to remove the gutters to replace the rotten wood underneath the gutters. This was a headache that I felt in that moment. I felt like, ‘Wow.’ I felt that I had been taken moneywise. So I said, ‘I am at a disadvantage here because I need to finish my roof and I need the painting to be completed as I requested. I know that you are increasing the price by no less than 40 percent, but go ahead and do it.’ So they came and they did the painting. After they came and finished, I believe I called them back just for a minor item. In the front of the house, there was some flashing that was wooden that needed to be fixed. They came and at the end I looked around the house. I am forgetting the price. I am satisfied. To my wife, I said, ‘We are satisfied.’ The roofing company came, but the painting was already done. So, the roofing was able to do the work that was done in the sequence that I had planned. That was my experience with Home Works Painting. The estimator was a very personable, friendly person, professional. He gave me a very well written proposal, all the paint information, and where he was going to change the wood for painting sake. Everything was included there and it was around $7,000. The second person that called didn’t change any of those parameters, but he said the first guy made mistakes. I had the incorrect cost and it was going to be $11,000. So, this is the rest of the story. I felt that I was in an ambush. Some people use the term bait and switch. I felt that I was taken by $4,000 or more or something like that, but I needed to do the painting. I need the roof replacement before I put the new gutters because otherwise the roofing company was going to be putting the gutters on some wood that was rotten. So, the painting company was going to have to come and detach the brand-new gutters to replace the wood and then put them back again. They would have told me, ‘Why didn’t you wait for the roof until the painting was done?’ I would have told them that that’s what I tried to do. So, I need to do the work in that sequence. If it was just painting and I didn’t have the roof I would have told them that.”

“When I signed the contract they told me they would repair any rotted or damaged wood/siding. When they showed up they did not make any repairs and painted over all the damaged/rotted boards. When they left on day 2 of the job I discovered beer cans and cigarette butts all over my yard. I called the company to complain and they told me they would fire the crew and be out to redo everything within 2 days. I agreed to have them come back out and they never showed up! I had to call and reschedule again 2 more times before I finally had the company owner come to my house so I could show him all the damage that had not been repaired and the additional damage that had been caused. They tried getting out of doing the work that had been promised! I had to threaten a lawsuit before they finally came and did the work! When the job was completed they did do some extra repairs to my home to make up for the horrible experience I had, which was very nice of them, but the color they painted my house was wrong and the work that was done is already coming undone after less than 1 year! The only good thing I can say about the company is that their customer service representative on the phone was surely amazing. I would never recommend them for any work on anyone's home.”
