“Tech Painting Company was referred because of them being able to work with cleaning and clearing lead. However, after the job was completed lead was still found in the home and legally we could not return until it was removed. So they had to come back to do it all over again, which added three weeks until we could move back into the home.”

“When we bought our home in late 2018, we had about 12 different contract craftsmen and teams in the first three months to update everything from electrical to masonry to plumbing and heating. Of all of them, Tech Painting was the worst customer experience we had. They worked in January 2019 and even today, I continue to find small details about their work that let me down (drip marks in places I didn't notice at first, failure to sand old painted surfaces smooth, failure to even plaster some areas smooth before painting)—and that's after having to have them return to the house three times just to deliver on what was contractually promised. I may not mind so much if the company charged us what a traditional carpenter contractor's team would to paint the interior of our home. But we paid for the so-called experts to ensure a lead-safe environment, and paid a hefty premium for our continual disappointment. I eventually gave up trying to get them to fix everything because the repeated return visits were holding up other work by other contractors that needed to be completed before we moved in. The psychological stress of dealing with them was too great. I just gave up. Whenever someone asks me for a recommendation on painters, I steer them clear of Tech Painting. Luckily we found another company that was much better for our future projects.”

“They're a great company. They've done a lot of painting for me, residential and commercial. I'd rate them an A. I mean, they're a great company. I wouldn't use them again if they weren't.”

Review by

“We've had a few painting companies come through, and they were just the most comprehensive. They seemed like they did the best job, and they were clean. It was just interior painting, and they did just a couple rooms. It's an A job.”

Review by

“The part that I liked—they were professional, and the work was you know, was good. It was what we expected. It was kitchen cabinet painting. I would say an A+.”

“I was having some exterior painting done.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“The house was being prepared for sale, and I think that, I paid the bill for the paint job. Tech Painting is the company that I usually ask to do house work for me. Every time that Tech Painting worked for me or did something for me, they did a good job, and in fact, this time I think that they didn't paint in the house. What they did was they painted a bench that I had outdoors and in preparation for it being shipped. But they did, they have done this bench before. They have done my house on the exterior before, and I have been highly pleased with the work they've done. I would say they deserve an A. In all respect, Tech Painting is a very professional organization and they do good work. They always were on time. They never made an appointment with me and canceled it even, certainly never made an appointment with me and didn't show up, so I grade them an A. If I were still living in Bethesda, I would be using them still and I would recommend them to anybody else.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“We thought that they did an excellent painting job. It was all exterior. I would give them an A-, and the only reason for the minus is that there were a lot of vines growing on the areas that they were painting. We actually thought—especially for the neighbor—that they were going to paint around them, but they cut things down. So, on the plus side, it meant they did a much better painting job. On the negative side, there were some questions from our neighbor, and they weren't expecting that. But they did an excellent painting job, and I think ultimately we feel they did the right thing. They really did a nice job.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“I thought Tech Painting did great work. They were easy to work with. It was just a great experience. It was just some general house painting. In fact, my husband's contacted them recently to see if they can do some more work for us. It was interior painting. I think it was just a few rooms around the house. I would give them an A+. They were very careful to educate me about my options when they were listing the work to be done and to say, we could this, it would cost a little more, or we could do this. They were very good about that sort of thing.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They were careful, professional, on time, and so on—they cleaned up. It was residential exterior painting, and I'd give them an A-. The issue wasn't with the quality of the painting, but if any issue, it was with replacing rotted wood. They were good painters, but there were some minor issues with wood that probably should have been replaced that was painted instead. I think they weren't as good at identifying rotted wood, because they're painters and not contractors generally. But they did a beautiful job painting.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They came right away, and they worked quickly and efficiently. It was interior painting. Actually, they did a condo that we own. I'd give them an A- because I'm a former teacher and I'm a tough grader, but it's still an A. They were good. They actually responded unlike other places. They were on the list here, the neighborhood list here. I think that's where we got their name. Somebody else recommended them.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“I had a positive experience except I found them to be a little expensive. They painted the trim on my house. I thought their work was relatively careful. There were a couple of places where their work wasn't as careful as I would have liked. Their ladder left marks on some of the boards at the top of the house, but I thought the painting was good. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“It was excellent, absolutely excellent. They're just meticulous. They're detailed, and their team really works well together. It was both interior and exterior painting. I'm an interior designer so I use them for a lot of my clients. The last time it was the whole home inside. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They were just, I guess, efficient. It's been awhile, but I just remember being pleased with it. It was exterior painting, residential. I think I'd give them an A-. I can't really remember about punctuality, but I feel like if there was any issue that's where the A- might come from.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They were very neat. They were very courteous. The people that worked on the project were attentive, and they were efficient. They got the job done quickly, and they arrived when they said they would. It was exterior painting. Everything looked well at the end. I'd say an A.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“I had a great experience with them. I'd recommend them. They were just great. They came when they said they would. They did a good job of prepping, and they're courteous and professional. It was residential. It was exterior painting. I'd give Tech Painting an A.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They did a good job on the work, but they took three days instead of two and weren't really clear about the whole scheduling thing—like I had to keep bugging them to schedule it, and they didn't tell me it would be three days until the end of the second day. It was kind of bad customer service, but they did a good job painting. The crew was good, just the managers weren't great. It was interior painting. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They were very positive for the first days that they were here, they were excellent. And then on the very last day I think they ran out of time and got a little sloppy. They did painting. It was interior. Just on the very last day, we have a door that you open to go into the attic, and they painted it shut. I did call. They were going to come out and actually, that I hadn't noticed until later, but one of the blinds had been broken but that I don't think was their fault. I think it was falling down, but then by touching it, it made it go down. But then when we came in, it was the side, but I think it was starting to break anyways so I don't think that was their fault. But then there was a vent that they, I don't know what happened to all the screws to it, but the screws were missing. These were all on the very last day. They were excellent up until the very last day. I'd have to give them a B because of that last day.”
