was prompt, professional, and very thorough. His painting work was very good. He takes great pride in his work. Other than using an assistant to wash the surfaces to be painted, he performed all of the work himself. The ...more work consisted of cleaning the surfaces to be painted, preparation work (which took the most time), including caulking (including replacing old caulk around windows), sanding, repairing some areas in which the wood had rotted or had been chewed up by squirrels, or had cracked in the sun. He was diligent, and worked pretty much nonstop while here, and worked from the time he arrived until close to dark each evening. His breaks were modest in frequency and length. Since the painting was completed, the house, which had not been painted in several years, has looked much better.
From start to finish, his work took about 6 days. The first day consisted of cleaning. Days 2-5 consisted of prep work; he began painting during Day 5 and finished on Day 6. The work took a little longer than expected due to some portions of the woodwork that required more repair than originally anticipated; the scope of the repair did not become apparent until the old paint had been removed.
His price was very reasonable; the price included the cost of paint and other materials he used in the job. The price matched his estimate. "

"The work was all very professionally done. The crew arrived on the agreed date and powerwashed all the surfaces that were to be painted. The next day a small
came and began the prep work of repair and stayed to finish up the primer ...more coat of paint. I was very impressed that they worked a 12 hour day. The crew was back punctually at 8:00 the next morning to apply the paint.
Besides the excellent work, the owner,
, was very responsive to my request to fix part of the soffit with new wood after the painting was completed. I really appreciated the timely manner and the number of men on the crew so that the job could be completed in three days. I certainly can highly recommend this firm. "

Dallas Exterior Painters Reviews
"The interior paint work was average. Lots of areas that needed touching up or were done a bit sloppily (e.g. paint runs, areas where paint is thin and you can see old paint underneath, nails and screws left in walls and painted over instead of removing them before painting, etc.) They painted a metal clothes rod in one of our closets that caused paint ...more chips to fall onto all of the clothes and shoes in the closet for an entire year until they came out and corrected the problem by replacing the rod with an unpainted rod. You kind of get what you pay for with these guys.
The exterior paint work was far below average. Less than a year after the work was completed (they repainted our deck after it was damaged in a hail storm), nearly all of the deck paint had peeled off. The company STILL has not corrected this problem, despite assuring me that they would. "
was the right person for my job as soon as I met him. One of my friends had had him work at her house twice (she found him on Angie's List). Then I read all the reviews and called him.
walked around my house and garage and seemed to be knowledgable about the needs of an eighty year ...more old home. I had not painted the trim in seven years and knew that the time was now before the hot summer.
Because I had some rotten wood due to water and squirrels he had lots of prep first. He power washed the first day. Then his very capable crew showed up the next day to sand away and bondo the damaged places or replace with new wood. They primed and painted.
found perfect matches for my two paint colors and away they went. They spent three and a half days on the prep and painting.
The iron railing in front of my home was needing to be repainted as well. It was rusty and coming apart in a couple places and he re-welded it, then sanded and primed and repainted with an oil base of the same color as the darker trim. It looks much better.
The wood stained front door was needing to be refinished and he made it look great. Like a piece of furniture.
Because my home is one that is original, I wanted it to look nice, but not new. It is an old English
(one of the few left in my neighborhood) and I want to keep it looking fresh. Old, but fresh. And I feel this was accomplished.
Now I know who to call when I need some painting, carpentry, insulating, repairs, whatever....I have found the right company for the job. I highly recommend
and his business, DOTS (Dependable On Time Service)
Everything was cleaned up as promised. And I am happy. "
and his team did an amazing job on our house. He first completed the exterior trim on a brick house and did such an amazing job that we hired him to do the entire interior. His assistance in the color selection made all the difference. He is creative, hard-working, flexible (with me when I changed colors after the room was ...more done, yikes), and has an amazing team. I wouldn't let anyone else work on our home and I would highly recommend his company. "
and his crew showed up the day he said they would and were here
time very weekday morning for two weeks. We believe that our home had not been painted for 15 years. There were cracks in the plaster, dings in the walls, missing texture, popping nail heads, marred trim and cracked window sills. All of ...more these problems were repaired and corrected. We have 20 feet high ceiling in some areas and this crew painted walls and ceilings without scaffolding. Furniture and other large items were protected in plastic. They were quiet and efficient and they swept up before leaving. I specifically wanted
Natura and Advance paints, and the price of service includes that cost. I will definitely use
answered my initial call immediately, came and made the estimate the next day. He was very professional, on time to the minute, and friendly. His estimate also came quickly and as very reasonable. He understood that I was selling the house and needed the work done as soon as possible. Although his schedule was busy he fit ...more me in. He was prepared to continue working on the weekend if necessary but the crew finished before that had to happen. The repair work looks good, especially in the bathroom where the ceiling was even sagging due to water damage after a hail storm. They were all very polite and totally cleaned up afterward.
I'm still waiting for an estimate from the other company I called for a bid…4 weeks later! "
for a bid - he priced at $8500 compared to another bid which was $3000 for the same work. All line items on the invoice were the same indicating the same labor would be performed. Would recommend getting other bids before moving forward with
"Job was for a full repainting of my home exterior, which is part brick and part wood siding. Also included painting trim and replacing a wood column that suffered from partial water damage. I requested bids from three different contractors - at $2900,
was less than half of the other two bids. One was as high as $8500.
I ...more was extremely impressed with their work. The project was completed in four days. I carefully inspected the trim and couldn't find any evidence of bleeding or shoddy work. There was a delay to the start date but only because we had a lot of rain and wind impacting their ability to get started. I will be recommending
to any and all of my friends who need painting done in the future. "
