Pasadena, CA 91107

Painting – Exterior

Work Completed Date: November 15, 2011

Approximate Cost: $3,000.00

Home Build Year: 1950

Painted (after scraping, power washing and repairing surface) large area retaining/garden walls surrounding commercial building.

James Lee (the owner) called back within a few hours after leaving my message. He arrived within a day or two exactly on time to give estimate. After a careful look at my dreadful peeling wall (stucco “paint” had been applied at some point and several areas were now peeling off the original concrete wall) he showed me his portfolio of work which was AMAZING. He also gave me a printout of hundreds of references with addresses of his recent jobs…VERY impressive. He then took time to explain his estimate and exactly what needed to be done. Abraham and his helper arrived a few days later and proceeded to cover the parking lot and sidewalks around the building (a retail operation which was open for business) with plastic so the scraped paint wouldn’t get into the asphalt and gardens. After scraping and sanding the wall they removed the plastic tarps filled with debris and power washed the entire area to be painted. I was amazed at their fastidious preparation! Minor repairs were done…Abraham resurfaced parts of the wall with a stucco material to match the areas of the wall that had not peeled and several large “chips” of concrete were also repaired. The wall was then primed and painted and it looks like new! The workers were extremely neat and cleaned up completely every day. There was no interference with the busy retail operation and they were so quiet my customers and I forgot they were there! I have been in business for 37 years and James Lee (House Painting Inc.) is one of the best contractors I have ever hired!!

Painting – Exterior

Work Completed Date: November 11, 2011

Approximate Cost: $4,500.00

Prepared and painted the complete exterior of our 1200 sq. ft. house including attached pergola and new garage door.

After securing several estimates we decided to go with House Painting, Inc. because we felt that James the owner was the most professional of all. He listened to our needs, gave a thorough presentation of past work with an emphasis on prepping the house before the first drop of paint. He showed us lots of pictures, gave addresses of work done, presented all the paperwork of insurance, etc. He gave us follow up calls while we gathered other estimates to see if he could address any other concerns and even adjusted his quote to match a competing estimate. We felt all along that he was the one who really knew what he was doing and had extensive prior work addresses to back it up.

James’ crew of father and 2 sons showed up as scheduled and jumped right in on the prep work. They even patched a large hole in the stucco under our water heater cabinet that wasn’t visible unless you were on your hands and knees. I hadn’t even told them about it but was relieved to find they did it because it was a place that spiders liked to nest. They gave care in priming our metal garage door with the proper prime and sanding and repairing caulking on windows and sliding glass doors that needed it. They also took great care in removing and reattaching a large clinging rose bush on our house front…not a broken stem in the process.

What most impressed us was they painted four color samples of our choosing on the house for us to decide. We had a little panic of ugh…not the right colors…too pastel! With a call to James, he met us the next morning at a neighbor’s house that we liked the color. He helped us match it and ironically had his crew bring a sample of the exact color anticipating what we were aiming for. James and his crew were so patient with all our needs throughout the entire job (including painting on several samples of trim colors as well).

Father and sons did an amazing job. They were always so polite and patient even treated our dog as their own. We felt they were a family that took pride in their work and not just some workers who don’t really care. They never left any kind of mess or debris when leaving for the day.

The finished paint looked fantastic, the colors all in harmony and the trim work was incredibly precise. On the last day they had us walk the entire house to make sure there were not any spots or details we weren’t happy with. We found none. After the guys left James called us within the hour to also make sure we were completely happy with the work done.

The bottom line is we would highly recommend House Painting Inc. and will definitely use them for the interior when we get to that. Beyond the fact that they were so professional, knew exactly what they were doing start to finish, used high quality paint…is that from the first meeting with James to the last phone call, he and his crew repeatedly wanted to make sure we were “happy”…and we were!

To top it off, we weren’t able to get our new gutters up in time for them to paint while they were there and James said not to worry he’ll send his crew back in a couple of weeks to paint them to match house color. Who gives that kind of service anymore?!

Painting – Interior

Work Completed Date: June 23, 2011

Approximate Cost: $3,500.00

Home Build Year: 1955

Interior housepainting of approximately 2000 sq. ft. home.  Walls were painted in one color; ceilings, baseboards, and window trim and doorways were another.  Included master bedroom and closet, 2 other bedrooms and closets, entry closet, 2 bathrooms, living room, dining room, 2 hallways.  Also included filling holes, cracks, and sanding.

It couldn’t have gone any better.  Mr. Lee, the proprietor, was responsive and helpful, and gave us a quick turnaround on a quote, as we were in a tight time frame to get the interior completed between the time the prior owners moved out and before we wanted to move in.  His two workers  were excellent, and completed the job beautifully within the time frame promised.  Although the house was vacant while they were painting, we visited several times to see how things were going, and to handle contractors who were there to give estimates on other work we wanted done.  Name  were always working hard.  Both were very friendly and pleasant, and handled things I requested politely and professionally.  They never spilled a drop of paint, they repaired surfaces carefully, and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards.  I had complete confidence in their abilities.  The experience exceeded my (high) expectations, and I would not hesitate to recommend the company to others.

I had House Painting Inc give me a bid for interior house painting in March 2011

They were very good. He changed his bid considerably. He gave me a bid which was very high and then he kept calling back. I think he knew what he was doing. He was very quick and he gave me a witness handwritten right there and then he emailed me the written estimate also. He was there on time and right to the minute. I had a friend who had his house painted by him. It went very well overall and I was very satisfied. I liked his promptness.

Approximate Cost: $6,500.00

House Painting Inc. painted the entire exterior of our house and some interior, including door ways and door frames.

Overall, the job went well. We were pleased. The paint is still holding up. They knew what they were doing and we liked them. They were very accommodating and very concerned that we were happy. When the job was finished and there were still things we wanted done, they continued until we were satisfied. They got it right. It did not take an enormous amount of time to complete the work. They were here all day, every day and really worked. It took a little more than a week. The interiors were an afterthought and he got a crew here the next day. He was very accommodating I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. They want their customers to be happy. They seemed to know what they were doing. They found a cracked window pane while they were painting and they replaced that for us. They did some of the glazing on the windows. We had them take out 2 shelves under windows that were planter boxes. It left holes in the stucco. They repaired that and painted over that and it looks great. They knew other things to do for the house besides painting to make the house look good. Neighbors who typically walk by our house complimenetd on how nice it looked. They were great to work with.

…. We definitely recommend them and will use them again in the future for other paint jobs Glenarm St PASADENA CA 91106,West Covina 91790,91791,91792,91793 House Painting Estimate Quotes Bid Pasadena

Painting – Exterior

Approximate Cost: $4,200.00

Description Of Work:

Painted exterior of entire 1400 sq foot house, including windows and French doors.

Couldn’t have been better. They came out right away after being contacted for an estimate. Once we decided to hire them, they were available actually within a couple of days, but we asked to wait until the next week. They got here around 8 every day. The first day they explained the process to us, asked us to pick colors, etc. They started on a Monday with sanding and prepping the first two days, started painting the third and were done by Friday mid afternoon. I had mentioned to them that we were having a party at the house on Friday afternoon, and they made sure they were done and cleared out by then. Cleanup was thorough. We didn’t like the initial trim color we had chosen, and they re-did it the next day. We definitely recommend them and will use them again in the future for other paint jobs

Painting – Interior

Approximate Cost: $2,450.00

Home Build Year: 1981

They painted the interior walls of a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo including living room, kitchen/dining area, 7 interior doors, the face of cabinets and inside closets. They removed some window blinds & related hardware, one small strip of wallpaper in a bathroom. Painted white on white/yellow.

Very good work. I called them 6 months prior for an estimate. Mr. Lee came out promptly and gave an estimate. Over the holidays I tried to get quotes from 6 “cheaper” painters. All gave me the runaround and never came out. When I called Housepainters back, they honored the original estimate and started work that Saturday. The only 2 quibbles I have is that they assumed they would work Sunday. My condo won’t allow that. I thought it unusual they would assume that. Maybe it is normal. Also, Mr. Lee did not call after the job to check in. But otherwise the walls and my baseboards look great, they charged what they said, cleaned everything up and were done early! Very professional.

Andrew   and his crew prepped and painted the entire outside trim(fascia) of the house. They even painted around the garage door. They were immaculate in their work. The ground and shrubs were protected with cloths.

James Lee came to the house and gave a very reasonable estimate. He was extremely nice. There was a mix up and they were a couple of hours late from the scheduled appointment. They wanted to come the next day, but I had prior commitments. The workers who came to the house were friendly and efficient. The work was done in one day. I would highly recommend their services without hesitation. I would definitely use them again for future work

They painted the entire exterior and parts of the interior.

James was very responsive, his crew is very professional, thorough and they did a great paint job. They cleaned up after themselves. One even came back on a Sunday to finish one last detail.
