Painting – Interior
Work Completed Date: July 09, 2011
Approximate Cost: $4,500.00
I had the interior of a 1,900 square foot home painted, which included signficiant prep work and patching to correct water damage and stains from the prior owner.
Mr. Lee and his crew at House Painting, Inc. were a real pleasure to work with, and I would use them again without hesitation. While I was in escrow, I got a recommendation for another painter and thought I was good to go. However, they were difficult to reach and unresponsive, and then after running them down they told me they might not be able to get the job done before my move-in date. With two weeks to go, I joined Angie’s list and found Mr. Lee. He came right over, give me an estimate and lots of helpful information. He assured me he could get the job done on time. And he did!The crew was here for a week, because the prior owner had neglected the roof and there were numerous poorly patched areas on the walls as a result. The roof was replaced, and the painting crew rolled in! They kept the house spotless. They tackled all the tricky patch work and got the walls back into good shape, and got everything painted. They checked in with me constantly to make sure that painting was proceeding as I wanted, and they made minor adjustments along the way without complaint. Overall, a very helpful, pleasant and professional group of people who did a great job on the house! (There are a few places where the patching / prep work, I have noticed, are not quite as smooth as they should be, I think, to get an “A” rating. To be fair, that could be because of the time constraints of this particular job. I hesitated on this for awhile… If an A- rating were possible, that would be my preference.)One quirk to watch. There were a few language difficulties with the work crew. Generally, we worked through it. Once, when I couldn’t understand what they were trying to explain to me about oil/water based paint and an issue that arose with the doors, I called the main office and explained that we were having a communication breakdown. Mr. Lee called back right away, and everything was straighten out. I would use House Painting again without hesitation. In fact, I now need the outside of my house painted, and I expect I’ll be calling them again soon for that!
