After inspecting the job,
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
gave me an estimate to paint and repair rotted wood on my house. Once he started the job, each time I conferred with him he complained that there were more things wrong, things were worse than he thought so I offered to have him rewrite a new quote based on his assessment of the scope of the job changing. He chose not to requote. Additionally, I had asked him to match the paint color on a home in our neighborhood to which he said that would be no problem to do. He showed me a tiny swatch and said "this is the color of the house you requested." I said ok and he started to spray the house. The next day I returned from work to find what looked to be a very different color from what I had wanted matched, and unfortunately, this color mimicked very closely the house right next door. When I asked him why it was so different he reminded me it was the color of the house I chose. The peak color which was supposed to also match the other house was way way off as well. I told him I wanted the body of the house reprinted, he said it was matched correctly....I took a sample of the newly painted siding to the house I wanted matched, and took a photo of the two together. It was very obvious they weren't even close. He did agree upon seeing this that they were quite different but continued to argue he would not repaint the house and would only do so if paid (and not until spring - this was in
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
....because he was too booked). I also had to constantly stay on him to repair the rest of the wood that was in the quote, when he said he would be there to work he seldom showed when he was supposed to and in the end, many of the items in the quote remain unfinished and I will have to do them myself. To make matters worse, this was a situation where the city wanted this work done and it was on a timeframe. He knew this. Anything not done by a certain time, I will incur charges in the form of late fees.

provided a thorough inspection of the house prior
to providing an estimate and I received a written estimate within a couple of
days. He was extremely helpful in
selecting paint colors and was also willing to give advice regarding other
repairs that were needed.

and his
crew were friendly, efficient, and helpful from start to finish and were
willing to give advice and guidance regarding other repairs for the house. Both he and his crew went above and beyond
and even carefully removed and later replaced a bird’s nest to paint in order
to minimize disturbance to the mother

and her eggs. Communication
was excellent throughout and

and his crew kept me updated regarding the
progress of the project and promptly alerted me to problems/difficulties as
they arose. The paint job is top quality and neighbors have even stopped to comment on how good it looks! Overall, I would highly
recommend

without a doubt will be using them for future
painting projects.

came to my house to discuss an estimate for exterior painting of the wood trim on my duplex and non-attached garage. He was very knowledgeable about paints and painting techniques and took the time to listen to my needs and answer my
questions. He sent me a very detailed estimate that was in line with two other estimates I received, but was much more detailed than one of the other estimates. The paint to be covered was a fairly bright color, so the estimate included prices for either one or two coats, depending upon how well the first coat covered. I decided that I wanted two coats for both better coverage and longevity.
I have never seen such attention to detail and such meticulous painting prep work in all the years that I have been a home owner. They scraped every bit of wood, filled in uneven spots, and power washed before applying the primer. They scraped old window glaze and reglazed, where necessary. They carefully removed all storm combinations and replaced them when done. They protected all of the plants and shrubs that abut the house, and cleaned up completely every night. I agreed to let them store their
ladders and supplies in my garage and they left the garage cleaner than it was when they started.
Due to the extremely rainy spring and an inside job that started during one of the rainy spells, the job took somewhat longer than I had hoped, but the final product was well worth the wait. I have received compliments from neighbors who watched the
progress of the job, not only on the final product, but on the quality of workmanship that they observed.

This company was subcontracted by a painting company I hired to paint my home since they needed more crews to meet their client demands. The original company is very reputable and only work with crews that will live up to their expectations.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was FANTASTIC. A crew of about 6 guys came and scraped, primed, repaired some exterior woodwork, and painted the house. This is a BIG job as it is a traditional early 1900's Milwaukee home. Each day they left the property in great shape and worked their butts off from 7-5. My home is looking fantastic and is almost finished, but I didn't want to wait to get this review up. Really great experience and I would use them again. Having a home painted is a major investment and I feel like I have gotten a good value. They also work by the book with the new EPA lead guidelines.

It went great! They showed up as expected.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came by daily to check his crew's work. The crew was quiet and respectable and worked diligently. They crew, and
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
himself at times, did the job quickly, quietly, neatly, and cleaned up nicely after themselves. The house looks much better and I have confidence the job will last at least a few years. I recommend them.

and team were fantastic. The painting itself was fine of course but the real thing that distinguished them is the superior communication and customer service. Onsite they were very professional and efficient and in the estimating process,
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very focused on understanding our needs and expectations so that they made sure they met them. PLus on at least 2 counts
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
went a step beyond to really help us out - he expedited our project to meet our timeline and after the fact he went out of his way to ensure I got necessary documentation on short notice. If I weren't moving out of the state I would definitely plan to use them for future sprucing up projects.

Home improvements should always be this easy and stress free! Our 90 year old house was peeling significantly and in need of some TLC. After hearing numerous horror home painting stories from friends and neighbors, we were very apprehensive of tackling our homes' painting needs. Upon meeting owner
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Hill of
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, we were put at ease in the initial quoting phase.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
took the time to hear out and address our concerns and did an excellent job communicating the scope and manner in which the project would be completed. We solicted a number of bids for the job and while
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
pricing was in the middle,
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's honesty and desire to do a great job maintaining the integrity of our old house swayed us to
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. He was very competent and friendly from quote, paint selection, prep/paint, through final walk through. There were many uphill challenges with painting the Summer of 2013. Early May and June were very rainy and unseasonably cold.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
did a great job communicating with us the delay and explained why painting in those conditions would adversely affect that final paint job. They were committed to doing the best job possible and wanted to ensure that they could deliver. When the weather improved,
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's team was confronted with a 100 degree heat index the whole week our house was worked on. Our confidence grew further with the introduction of
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's crew. The gentleman that are on
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's team are some of the most courteous, integrity-filled and kind people that I have seen on a job site! The personality of all instilled confidence and trust. They were very respectful and compassionate towards me and my young children. They ensured that even though they were in dangerous heat each day we would have air conditioned comfort every night by adjusting their timing so our wall AC units would be in place when needed. We repeatedly offered to bring the crew cold water and were kindly turned down as it was their policy to bring everything they need and not impose on the home owner. They were prepared for the weather (oppressive heat to
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and storms) and kept an efficient pace. The team was quite, no loud music, loud talking, or conversations that the owner/kids or neighbors would object to. It was almost as if they weren't here until you saw a ladder move or go up. The
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
team clearly works well together and enjoy what they do. It was fascinating to see how quickly and well they completed their tasks. Not sloppy, no drips on our brick patio or brick walls. The team did a fantastic job cleaning up each day! You would never have known that they had been at the house each evening if not for the huge progress they'd made each day. There was continuous and accurate communication with
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and the Site Manager,
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, I knew what to expect and when. They were prompt, no surprises! They had a clear desire to do the best job possible and would not rush or allow the weather to jeopardize the quality of their work. Top notch all the way! In a final classy touch, we received a personalized, hand written thank you note a few weeks after the job was completed!! I am looking forward to having the team back to work on the inside of my home. I have highly recommended
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
to many family and friends. I encourage you to make the seemingly daunting task of painting easy by calling
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. A model by which others should follow!

I contact them and signed the contract in April of this
year. I was told that they would schedule a date later and that they were
book up for the next six weeks, which was fine. I explained that I had
the paint swatches for the color when they needed (they never asked for it) It
was the end of June and I had not heard from them on scheduling my
appointment. I inquired about it and if I was eligible for the monthly
special they had going. I was told no on the special and that
someone would get back to me on the scheduling of the appointment. Two
weeks past still no word on my job. At the end of
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
I got an email
stating that they would be out to do the job.
After the job was completed I had to contact them because they missed areas
that were pointed out to be paint. I also wasn’t happy with the clean up
after the job. It appeared that no clean
up was done at all, as I found paint chips all over the place, covering my
porch and yard. They had to come back out a second time to do these areas. The paint that they used is a completely
different coat as what was requested.
Overall I am disappointed with the paint job, the time frame from signing and
paying for the contract over four months, the fact that they had to come back
out, and the clean up. The job is done
but not to my liking. If you look close
you can notice the differences in the paint job of the overall house.
I never heard back regarding my other request.

Finished paint job looks very good. Painters worked quickly and did a good job removing old paint and applying new finishes on the house. Cleanup by
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
on a daily basis was poor. We had to make multiple calls to get paint chips cleaned up. Paint was left on
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, in gutters, on the roof, on the pavement and in the grass. There are still stains from caulk on our neighbors driveway. I am still in the process of cleaning paint splatter off windows.
The final part of the painting job required painting of storm windows which was done too hurriedly in our opinion(possibly to finish the job). Some storms didn't have both sides painted, needed second coats and when the storms were hung back up they were still tacky and paint stuck to interior window trim. These will have to be touched up next spring.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was responsive to our requests but their workers did a poor job cleaning up when directed to by
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. At the price point (which was middle of the pack of the quotes we received) I would expect to have the contractor to put down drop cloths and cleanup properly. As i said the finished job looks very good.
Milwaukee Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
used quality paint and worked quickly but issues with cleanup and attention to details left us somewhat dissatisfied with the overall service.
