House Painting Inc. painted the house – the exterior, the gate, and the garage. Several painters sanded, primed and painted the stucco and wood parts of the house. They also took care of the metal awnings by priming and painting. They repaired some parts of the older wooden window frames prior to painting so that a smooth painted surface would be achieved. They put protective plastic coverings on the inside and outside of the windows as necessary to prevent debris from entering the house as they sanded and painted. In the patio covering in the backyard, the painters repaired previous shoddy work done years before by another company, and sanded, primed and painted. They placed yellow caution tape around the front yard to prevent accidents.
We had contacted several painting companies for quotes, and noticed that House Painting Inc.’s prices were competitive and their reputation impeccable. We had a deadline to get the job started, and after finally deciding on House Painting Inc., the deadline was about two days away. We called them, and pressured them to start the job almost immediately. James Lee of House Painting Inc. was very accommodating, and juggled other painting projects and customers in order to start the job on the date we requested. They started very early in the morning on that date, and were professional. They placed yellow caution tape around the front yard to prevent potential accidents, and were friendly and courteous the entire time. We appreciated the trouble they went to to protect the house interior from sand and debris. They placed plastic sheeting inside and out for that purpose. They were focused and efficient, and worked long hours diligently. We had minor concerns about a few spots on the wooden front door and window frames after painting, and James Lee addressed these issues immediately and thoroughly. He even went beyond our expectations, and was proactive in finding and fixing any areas that might be an issue. He even came over personally after working hours to address any concerns we had. The painters were focused and sanded, primed and painted completely and effectively. Some areas of the house required several extra coats of paint – the painters did whatever was necessary to achieve a professional appearance. They primed and painted metal awnings as well as wooden patio covers. They finished painting the garage in no time, and it is such an impressive paint job – I am convinced that House Painting Inc. fosters an attitude of perfectionism among its workers. They completed all of the work quickly and efficiently, and checked in with us frequently to make sure we were happy with their progress. After completion, James Lee bolstered our confidence in their work – he encouraged us to call him immediately if any of the paint started flaking. We asked them to give us an estimate for some interior painting, because of the great job they did with the exterior. The house and garage look so amazing now, that when I pull up to the curb, it takes me a second to realize that this is the right house, this “House Beautiful” is really where I live!
