Painting – Exterior
January 13, 2014
Home Build Year: 1950
We bought a new house (about 2400 sq ft, single story) over the summer, and as a result of numerous owners we had a three-tone (maybe four-tone or even five-tone) house, and we wanted to have the entire exterior paints with a single color. We got three bids, all around the same price, including James’ bid from House Painting Inc.
Having done a fair amount of work on our homes in the past, I must say that this was one of the best, if not the best, experience I’ve ever had with home improvement trades. From the minute James bid on the job, until the last touch-up was done, the entire crew was professional, friendly, and obsessed with the quality of the job. Abraham led our crew, and he was beyond words. They painstakingly patched, taped, and prepped for several days – I don’t think anyone could have been more precise about it. We had requested that they use white (actual white, not off-white) for the job, and they were both concerned we would not like the outcome. James even called us the night before the top coat began to make sure we were 100% sure (we were – and we are 100% thrilled with how it came out).
Abraham painted with the kind of care that you would use on your own home, if you had unlimited time to do the job (except he’s a pro, and can move pretty quickly, even while being precise). They ended up taking about 6.5 days for the whole house. The night before they finished, our dogs put some scratches one of the exterior doors that had been painted. Abraham noticed the next morning, and we assured him it wasn’t his fault and he shouldn’t have to fix it. He insisted on it, saying he didn’t want to leave without knowing that we were completely satisfied.
I don’t think I would ever consider using another painting contractor on future project.
