“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

“They were very careful. They were very pleasant, and they were very accommodating. They painted the whole house. It was just interior, but they did everything. It's A+ all the way.”

“They painted the exterior of our house. They completed it when they said they would, and their price seemed to be fairly reasonable. I would give them an A.”

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
10/16/2017

“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+.”

Review by

“Everything seems to be fine. They seemed to have done a pretty good job. It was just painting the iron railing, iron porch. It'd be 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.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“I would say overall they were very good. The guys that came out to do the painting were very diligent, and they just did a good job. They did the exterior painting, and I have sort of a challenging town home. It's four stories so they had to go pretty far up. Everything looked good. The only surprise, quite frankly, the only comment I would make is they hammered 2X4's into my roof because of the steepness, and I wasn't aware that's what they were going to do and of course, that's not necessarily something that should have been done for a roof without having it properly fixed afterward, caulking the holes and that sort of thing. So, I did just have to talk to them and while they said it was industry standard that boards be hammered into the roof like that, it isn't, according to roofers. They did however caulk the whole underneath the asphalt roof as I requested so I'm happy with that. I'm going to go with a B+.”

Review by
10/16/2017

“They came when they said they were going to. They did a bid. They went over the bid, but I thought the quality of the work was OK and it wasn't that much over. So, the point is, good work and good communication. I’d give them a B. They did interior.”

“Any little extra thing that I asked them to do, they did readily. The painting was very well done. You know, they were very meticulous in what they did. Just overall, very, very good. It was an A.”

Review by

“I'm going to guess they were on time, they did good work, and they cleaned up after themselves. They painted the outside of the house. We'd give them an A. They did exactly what they said they were going to do.”

Review by
09/26/2017

“They did a great job; it was just attention to detail. I think they did a good job with the actual paint work there, and they left the surroundings clean—plus, they were good listeners. I think it was interior, all interior; I'll rate it as an A. They were clean and nice about it. They were very methodical about cleaning, too, leaving everything clean.”

Review by

“They did interior painting. It was one room. It was a very nice crew, great quality of work. It was excellent, no complaints, A+.”

Review by
09/07/2017

“They did the whole exterior of the house. It's a very old house. It's about 80 years old, and it's all wood so there was a lot of work involved. I'd rate them a B. They did a good job overall. I have two specific complaints. One is that they scratched quite a few of the glass panes and then the other is sometimes when it was raining they didn't use a moisture meter or way to—sufficient enough time for things to dry out and they tried to paint. We had a lot of rain that month so maybe that's why. So, it's just two negative points that I have. Those are the two negative points so I had to just be on the watch to make sure they wouldn't start painting before the wood was dry, even though we did have a lot of rain but still, if you're exterior painting and you're painting when it's wet out, it's not going to produce a good result. And then they also used the sander near the window, on the window panes, and I guess it was not the right sander. So basically, they broke one window. They scratched another, but now I noticed when the sun comes through they scratched quite a few other ones and it's an antique glass. I told them, ‘Please be careful, don't scratch the glass. Do whatever you need to do.’ But they scratched the glass. Overall they worked really hard. They did good work, but those two things were, if I had to do it again, I would probably put something down in writing. I would be a little bit more insistent that they sand the window pane with a different sander.”

“I am an interior designer, and I've painted over 8 jobs with him. Everything was a positive experience. I've worked with them for almost 3 years, since the first year they opened, and I was on two jobsites with their painters today. Last year, over at my own home, they did ironwork. They repaired and restored my historic thresholds on the front and the back of my house, which are wooden and original to the 1893 structure. They also repaired the back of my garage. They replaced some of the wood that was starting to fail and repainted everything. They've done the interior and exterior of my house. I'd give them an A+ grade. There's no one else on the marketplace like these guys. They have a painter for every job. If there’s a job that involves carpentry, along with the painting, they have a crew for that. They look for the people with their strengths, and then they put the crew chiefs who are appropriate for that job. They're great at communicating. They're terrific. They've been a real godsend for me. I met them the first year they were in business, and I've never used another painter, or another commercial painter, other than a Tech painter.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“They were good. It was about a year ago. They did an exterior paint job because some paint was crumbling. The house was in an historic district near the capitol. The historical society here is crazy, and it's got to be done absolutely perfectly or they will fine you. It'd have to be done so, and it had to be done with consideration for the fact the house was old enough that it could have had lead paint. They took care of it. It was very smooth, and there were no issues. It was an A.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“Tech did plaster and interior painting. They did a good job, and they finished on time. I'd give them an A. I do have two spots that they need to come back and do. I asked them to come back and patch up those spots about a month ago, but I haven't heard back. I'm waiting for them to call me back, so that’s an issue. It's two little patches that bubbled because they didn't get the plaster dry, but other than that, there wasn’t an issue. They're good people, and they do good work.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“It was about a year and a half ago that they painted the whole exterior of my house, and I was very well satisfied. These were four story houses, and years ago, a different crew was working on ladders—that was hazardous. I don't think they could sand as much or do as neat of a job. Tech Painting did, because they brought out motorized lifts. I'd grade them an A+ rating. There was not a single issue, and the price was right. I'd use them again.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“They did a good job. They painted the entire exterior of the house. The house hadn't been painted for probably ten years. So I had a whole bunch of algae, mold, crud, and dirt. They cleaned the entire house. They primed it, painted it white, and even painted my gutters, which were moderately gross looking. They did a great job. I'd give them an A grade. They did a great job for all categories, all top marks. I already have recommended them.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“I think they were fantastic. They were very quick and super clean. I had wood floors that were freshly done, and they painted the base molding, doorframes, trim, and everything. I couldn’t even tell they were there other than that the walls were fantastic. Overall, I’d rate them A. The quality was superb .”

Review by
07/28/2016

“They did external painting. I liked their attention to detail and conscientiousness. They did exactly what they said they’d do in the right amount of time and were highly professional. They’re an A. They did an excellent job. I’d recommend them to anyone .”

Review by

“They were great. They were all very professional and perfect gentlemen, and the crew head was stunning. They painted three rooms and two decks, and they did a wonderful job. They made these rooms look beautiful. In every possible way, they went above and beyond. I’d give them an A +.”

“It wasn't an overwhelmingly positive experience, but it wasn’t negative. They weren't neat enough, that was the problem. I’ll give them a B. They tried hard. They were on time, and they were flexible about it. They were clean enough. It was the work that was messy and sloppy.”

Review by
07/28/2016

“It was fine. It was only exterior painting. They were relatively neat. It took a long time. They were doing several places in the community and they were relatively neat. I'd give them probably a B+. They could have cleaned the paint that they got on the windows. I had to do that myself. The window was the only issue. Otherwise, they were relatively fine.”

“They have done a lot of work for me. I like them a lot. They have painted inside and outside, and they've done my garage, my front door, and the trim on my house.

“They did exterior painting. Their customer service is good. B+, unfortunately we just have a few spots that weren't painted properly but I haven't even followed up with them to tell them they were there so they wouldn't even know. It's hard to say that they have done anything that poorly other than just getting it right the first time, minor stuff.”

Review by
07/15/2015

“The paint is peeling. I've just noticed today that more painting is peeling off and I'm not happy with it. I would rate them poor. Although they did come back to try to fix it but they haven't fixed it and it's just frustrating. They just didn't do a proper job deglossing and sanding so that's the problem.”

Review by
07/13/2015

“They are always awesome. I just know that whenever they paint my house, they do an awesome job. It's always the interior—the bedroom and the bathroom. We were one of their first customers back when they started in the 80s, which was three houses ago. They’re definitely an A.”

Review by

“I have used them quite a lot in the past, and they always do a good job. I think they did some outside work this last time. Their customer service is good. When they come out, they’re friendly guys, and they get the job done. They were recommended to me by a friend.”

Review by

“We're very pleased. They were on time, and they did a very careful job all the way through, from scraping down to painting—we're pleased with the results. They were doing the exterior front.

Review by

“They were friendly, nice people. They did all interior work. It was a referral from my brother-in-law. They said they were going to show up, and they showed up. I got good communication both in the sales department and from the estimate point, and then the guys who were here were nice guys. I’d give them an A.”

Review by

“They did a good job, they were efficient, and they did what they said they were going to do. They painted a number of rooms in our house, including a hallway, and there was some plasterwork, too. Everything was done to a high standard. We were pleased. I asked my architect about Tech Painting, and he said he had used them a couple times, so they came recommended. Once we identified them, we checked up on them, and they checked out.”

“They were very responsible, they came when they said they were going to come, and they did a nice job on the project. They painted some iron steps and painted some exterior window sills. It wasn't a huge job. They were very friendly and responsive. I think I found them online. B, the only thing and it really wasn't - there was some miscommunications with the office and the staff about when exactly. They always come the day they were supposed to come but what time they were going to come and I felt like it was maybe the manager wasn't communicating well with his people because they guys that actually came out were really nice and really responsible. I think it was somewhere in the office that could use a little work.”
