Full Exterior House Painting
Excellent company! I highly recommend them.
Recently, I had insulation blown into the walls of my 1939 house in Altadena. As part of the work, the technicians had to drill through the exterior stucco about every 3 feet, in both the upper and lower sections, followed by patching the holes. So, the exterior of my house looked like swiss cheese when they were done. Unfortunately, the insulation guys didn’t do a very good job with the stucco patches, so I knew I’d need a very good painter to make my house look good again.
Two different friends recommended James Lee (House Painting Inc.), so I looked him up on Angie’s List as well as Yelp and saw all the glowing reviews. I called for an estimate and got the response, “we can come by this afternoon if you are available” – talk about prompt service. Mr. Lee walked the exterior, we discussed the level of stucco repair/clean-up needed, and he provided me a more-than-reasonable estimate on the spot. I was so pleased with the reviews, Mr. Lee’s attitude/professionalism, and the estimate (did I mention how reasonable it was!), I decided to go with House Painting Inc. right on the spot.
Mr. Lee was very flexible to the start date that I wanted and his 2-person team showed up promptly as promised. They were able to complete the full exterior painting (as well as a couple of minor interior patches) within a week.
Overall, they did an EXCELLENT job and I couldn’t be happier. The amount of time spent on prep work and in fixing/cleaning-up the stucco patches was outstanding. They protected all the landscaping (plants as well as the new pavers I had just installed) and there were no oversprays or spills anywhere. They also removed all the gutter downspouts and patched/painted behind them (which it appears the previous painters/owners had not done).
Overall, I am more than pleased with the work performed (have I mentioned how reasonable the price was). Very professional, high quality, prompt … all the great adjectives/adverbs you can use (but usually never have the opportunity) to describe a contractor. I will definitely use Mr. Lee and House Painting Inc. for all my paint jobs in the future.
