“I've been using Zampiello for 22 years. I love them; everything is perfect. I have used them since we moved here. They've done a lot of work for us, and we're very happy with them—absolutely excellent. I have nothing but good things to say about them.”
“It was fantastic. They painted my dining room, kitchen, hallway, and stairway. They're very professional. They bagged everything, and they didn't make a mess. The quality of the paint job was very good. It was nice—I'd give them an A+.”
“They were awesome. They did excellent work, and I'm 100 percent likely to recommend them. They kept me up-to-date, and the work was great. We're very happy.”
“The people who run the company were really solicitous and helpful. Their customer service is exemplary. They're absolutely A+ across the board. I'd give them eleven out of ten if I could.”
“They were staining our fence. They took extreme care because it was the beginning of spring, and I'd just planted flowers. They took very good care, extreme care, of the flower beds, and there's no paint. I was worried about this paint being on our stone patio. They did an outstanding job of protecting everything. I'd give them an A+.”
“I had an excellent experience with Zampiello Paint. We were very happy.”
“I'd had a little bit of damage near my downspout that actually was caused by ice during the winter. I finally got around to doing it. It wasn't affecting anything; it was a cosmetic cleanup. I liked that they tried to save me money. They'd done some work for me last year. They called and said, 'Do you have any paint left over?' I said, 'Yeah I do.' I didn't have to buy any extra paint. We had plenty of paint left over. It's not often that contractors save you money. I'll give them an A+.”
“They painted our master bedroom suite. We weren't actually the ones who hired them. It was a gift from friends, so I don't know how much they paid, or if the folks donated the services. After the job was over, we met with the owner and he was great, so overall it was a good experience. I'd give them an A+.”
“Zampiello painted my hallway. They did a great job and were very professional. I'd give them an A+.”
“They did wood work, wood repair, and wood framing. They also did some repair around my garage door and my bay window on the front of my house; and then they painted that. They also painted the wood portions of my deck, repaired an interior ceiling that was leaking, and repainted a portion of the ceiling on the first floor. They basically did three projects. It was a good experience. I liked that they were prompt in giving me an estimate. They actually made it a point to speed up the schedule, so the schedule was better than what I thought it would be. They did what they said they would do, and they did it on time. I liked that. Overall, the work itself was very good, so I was happy with them. Their contact was good. Their communication was good. That's a huge thing with me, that they communicated via phone or email. The estimate amount, the scheduling, all that was good as well. They let me know when they were coming, and they stayed in communication, which is a problem I've had with other painters. I'd give them an A+.”
“They were power washing my house. I like that they're a small, family-run business. I'd give them an A+.”
“Zampiello painted the outside of my house. They had good attention to detail. I'd give them an A.”
“They did some trim work outside. They fixed some wood and then painted it. Once they got here and got the work started, they got it done, and it looks really good. I'd give them an A.”
“They were painting some window trim for me. They did all the right things. They returned the calls quickly. They showed up when they said they would show up. They finished when they said they would finish, and they did a good job. They were very responsive. I'd give them an A.”
“They were painting our townhouse. They did some interior and exterior work. They did a good job. They were also timely. They came on time, and they did the job. I'd give them an A.”
“It was good service. They did a good job.”
“It was a positive experience.”
“They were power washing and pressure treating our deck. The job was well done and finished when they said it would be finished. I'd give them an A.”
“It was a positive experience.”
“I've been using Dori for years. Not just at the house, but out in the field. I call, and he shows up and does work. He's done everything from the house to a 10,000 square-foot office space. I would recommend them—actually, he's getting ready to do my mother's house.”
“They were excellent. They did a good job of giving me the estimate, they stuck within the estimate, and they got the job done in a very timely fashion. It was very professional. They power washed my front porch—it's a wraparound porch—and they completely repainted it. It's an A-grade company.”
“They do a good job for us. The only thing that impressed me was when they had done the job and I was doing the settle-up with them, the guys who did the painting noticed a spot that was missed and went back and took care of it without me even knowing about it. So, I give them credit for making sure the job was done right. They just painted the front porch. They do work in the building I'm in, so I chose them. I would grade them as an A.”
“They were able to take care of everything pretty much on their own—they didn't need any supervision. They did come back to make sure everything was done correctly. They replaced the trim on my house and painted it. A lot of people in my neighborhood have used them. I would recommend them.”
“I liked everything. They did exterior painting. They did service for me many years ago, and I was very pleased with them, so I called them back. There was something I noticed, and they had to come back and fix it, but otherwise, they were excellent. They came out and gave me the initial estimate. Then, when they came out, they called me back and said there was something else. I said, 'Well, you guys already quoted me this,' so they didn't change the price of the quote that they already provided me.”
“They were very detailed in explaining to me what it would cost, how I could save money, and how long it would take. He always came right. The workers were excellent. I would give them an A grade.”
“They did what they said they would do. They did interior painting. We chose them because we had used them before. They were here when they were supposed to have been here. I would give them an A+.”
“I think it was supposed to take two days, and it took two days. They used a certain type of paint in my son's room because I was pregnant. Normally, they would've used oil-based, but they found a different type of paint that would be safer—not just for me because I was pregnant, but for him too. I would absolutely recommend them. They'd be an A.”
“They were here when they said they would be, and they did what they said they would do. They finished the job right away, and they did a good job. Everything was completely cleaned up when they finished. They did a deck on the back of the porch. We've used them before. I would recommend them. I'd rate them as an A. We had no complaints.”
“They did a nice job. They power washed the house and the two decks, and then they sealed the decks. The work area looked good after they finished. I would recommend them. An A grade is what I would give them.”
“I think they were very efficient. They did exactly what they were supposed to do, and they did it in a very timely fashion. The work area was completely clean when they finished. They painted a lot of the exterior of the house. The house is about ten and a half years old, and it just needed a touchup. My community association actually uses them in the clubhouse. I'm on the board of directors, so I was aware of their services. I would and have recommended them. I would rate them as an A.”
“They've done extensive work for us. I'm in a town house, and the association cites you for whatever has to be fixed. They did work in the front and the back. The windows, after 12 years, rotted, so they fixed the windows and then painted. They did the garage, too—the wood rotted at the bottom. They took that out, painted, and repaired the front door. They did very good work. Their quality was very good.”
“They were on time, they did the exact work required, and they were very professional all around. They did exterior painting. They're an A-grade company.”
“They were clean, they were neat, they were informative on what they were doing, and they got it done in a very timely fashion. They took down some old paneling that we had downstairs, they patched and repaired all the walls, and they painted and took care of everything. The handyman that we use recommended them. I would give them an A. We had a couple of little problems, but they came right back out and fixed what we saw.”
“They did what they said they were going to do. They power washed the house and painted the exterior of the house and the shutters. The customer service was fine. I'd give them an A.”
“It was easy dealing with them, they did good-quality work, and they left it clean. I think other people in the neighborhood had used them. They did outside painting on my town house. The customer service was good. The company gets an A from me.”
“They were responsive in terms of how the work was progressing. I was getting updates, and if there were any issues that came up, they were quick to let me know and coordinate any changes to what work I thought needed to be done. The overall quality of the work was good, so I was pleased with them. They were replacing the trim work on the exterior roof area of my house, and they did some painting. I chose them because I had used them previously. I would give the company an A grade.”
“They showed up on time, they cleaned up at the end of every day, and their paint job was very good. I heard about them from a friend. They painted the downstairs—three rooms. They're an A-grade company.”
“They were doing some stuff for me when I was selling my house. They did a good job. The owner was helpful and wasn't trying to do stuff that I didn't need. He was honest. He said, 'These are the things that you need to paint, and these are the things that you need to touch up.' It was interior painting. I'd give them an A.”
“I've had them do a couple of things around the house over the years, and I've always been very happy. The guy that runs the place was very attentive. I picked out a paint online, and it turned out that it was different when they started painting. When I talked to him about it, he came over, took a look, and realized the difference. They put on an extra coat of the color on that I did want. It worked out very good, and I was very happy with the way he responded. I would be happy to give them an A. In fact, I'm probably going to get the house painted again next summer, and I will definitely be using them again.”
“They were prompt, they did what they said they were going to do, they were efficient with their work, and they were great. They did painting and some woodwork. It was just parts of the house. They're in our neighborhood, and they have a great reputation. I would rate them as an A.”
“They did a good job, a quality job—I'm still happy with the work. I think the estimate was right on. They came in, got the job done, and left while keeping everything clean. I think someone else recommended them to us. It was a two-room job—a big kitchen and another room. They get an A from us. We'd use them again.”
“I guess they were pretty quick to get the work done. They painted a basement wall. I would give them an A grade.”
“They did work, they were quick, and they were on time. They're very courteous. It was just a good overall experience. They painted the interior of my house. It was a pretty big job. The company gets an A grade from me.”
“They painted my whole house on the inside. They had previously painted outside and worked on my deck, so they did quite a bit for me. My neighbor used them and had good referrals, so that's why I used them. The people in the office are in touch with you in addition to the painters, so I think they're concerned about whether they do a good job. I would give them an A.”
“They're the finest company I've ever done business with. They're unbelievable, and the job was impeccable. They did a bedroom and bathroom, and it looks like it's a new building. I recommend them anytime I see anybody. They're an A+ company.”
“I've been very impressed with ZPCI. They're very polite and prompt, they do an excellent job, and they follow up and answer any questions. It's just an all-around good experience. I had them do painting, wood repair, and wallpaper removal. They're an A.”
“ZPCI is awesome. One of the things they did was power washing the front of my house. We had some stains on it, and this guy really took his time and really worked to get those stains out. They did a fabulous job. They also replaced rotted wood outside the house and painted. I was very pleased with everything. They earned an A+ grade.”
“I liked their thoroughness—right from the beginning with the thoroughly detailed estimate, where you know exactly what you're getting and exactly what you're not getting to the follow-through and attention to detail. The cleanup was terrific—they didn't leave a bit of anything. We've used them many times in the past, but most recently, it was in the kitchen, several rooms downstairs, a stairwell going up, and then down that hallway. So, it was a lot of high areas that involved trim work. I would highly recommend them. I'd give them an A+.”
“We were very pleased with the work Zampiello did. In fact, we're getting ready to bring them back in again and do the next phase. The project they did for us was painting some walls and high ceilings for the interior. They were recommended by people in our area. The customer service was excellent. They were great to deal with. I'd definitely give them an A.”
“They did the work in the time allotted. They certainly did a very neat job, and the cleanup was excellent. In fact, there was almost no cleanup. It was interior painting. It was a hallway and two rooms. I think they deserve an A+.”
“They did an awesome job—they were in and out in a day, in my case. They not only did a good job painting and repairing the room, but they cleaned up and put everything back. They left it in awesome shape. I was very pleased with them. They came very well recommended. They did some drywall repairs and interior painting for me. They were recommended to me independently by two different friends. I would absolutely recommend them. They're definitely an A.”
“I liked how they provided a written estimate that was detailed, I liked how they cleaned up every day, I liked how they got the job done, and I liked the quality of the job. They did interior painting, and they took down wallpaper. They were referred to me by a friend. Their customer service was excellent. They get an A grade from me.”
“They were professional, neat, clean, and prompt. They did excellent work and were not intrusive. We have a busy family of six, so it's hard to deal with that. We had interior and exterior painting, and they did power washing. They're local to us, and we know their family name through the community. I would give the company an A.”
“They were efficient, they did a good job, and they were polite. We had the downstairs painted inside the house. They were highly recommended by a friend. I would give them an A.”
“They're clean, they're good workers, and they do a good job. They've done like five different projects for us—almost everything that you could think they offer in three different houses. They painted the ceiling and repaired the ceiling and woodwork in our two-story foyer and family room. So, it was really high work and kind of detail oriented. The first time we used them was in 2004. I would rate them as an A.”
“They actually painted our house on the outside in 2014. They were good. They had some difficult paint matches and some difficult areas to repair prior to painting—an oval window in particular. They had to remove the old, rotted window frame and replace it with something that wouldn't rot. They basically had to make it from scratch. They did a really nice job with that and with the paint match, which is a very odd blue and a very odd sort of off-tan color. The paint job was good. In fact, it rained in the latter part of one day when they were painting, and rain and oil-based paint don't mix, so they came back and repainted after it dried out. They did the right thing in addition to doing a nice job. I would recommend the company, and I'd use them again. I'll probably have to use them again, so that's a good thing. The company gets an A from me.”
“They were prompt, they were professional, and they did what they said they would do. They removed wallpaper from a dining room and living room, and they painted those two rooms. They left the rooms clean. I would recommend them to friends and family. I would give them an A.”
