House Painting reviews in Minneapolis
Price was the middle bid of three, and it seemed reasonable to me.
Areas of improvement: I wished for better protection of soil and plants during sanding and painting, both. The guys had to come back and hand-pick and vacuum up endless amounts of paint chips. I can only wonder how much paint and paint dust, possibly some of it lead-based (house built in 1938) has ended up in the soil all around the house. Lead paint/dust is serious, so Varsity, you should really be very conservative and use TONS of tarping around the paint/sanding areas.
The paint trim and porch floor colors were not initially, custom-color matched, as I'd asked (and provided old paint buckets with paint to match to). Preferred colors were no longer made by
Would reco and would use again.
From beginning to end, communication was excellent, and the estimates for stucco painting and trim were very reasonable. I had several estimates last spring, but it was clear that Eclipse was more familiar with dealing with stucco/masonry, and they quoted a fair price and flexed when I had to have them do more trim painting on the house. ( I hurt my back right before they started painting, so I had them do a second quote for the extra trim work and details that I was not going to be able to do myself. ) The crew stayed a few extra days to help get the extra work done. They were polite, professional, clearly knew what they were doing, cleaned up every night before leaving, and communicated well. I bought them some pizzas after one especially long day, I was so thankful.
I also noted that they use high quality paint that's made for stucco/masonry. And the old (cedar) trim now looks fantastic. I can tell this will hold up to the Minnesota weather and be beautiful for years. Very happy to have Eclipse do the work and would definitely hire them again.
The work was well done. The two painters who actually performed the work were capable and easy to communicate with. One painter was clearly designated as the leader, making it clear with whom I should discuss any issues that arose during the project.
If I need more painting in the future, I will certainly use Magic Painting again.
I will give relatively high
If you have a newer house and all you need is a coat of paint and you want to pay premium pricing, then you may or may not end up a satisfied customer. Best of luck to you if you proceed with this company!
On this job, it took a little while to get started. They made initial contact on a Thursday and said they would start Monday. On Monday I noticed they had dropped off equipment but had not started the work. When I called, the team leader,
An over riding circumstance on the whole job was the tremendous amount of rain we've experienced. Once they began they worked hard the entire time they were here and continued to hustle until the last possible moment before the rain started. They never compromised the quality of their work. They cleaned up every day and stored their supplies in our shed, which saved a lot of time of them having to haul equipment, load and unload their truck, etc.
They were very polite, professional and cognizant of my time and specifications.
I said when they finished that I didn't believe I'd have any more projects where I would need them, but if I did, I would certainly call them.
I actually sort of missed them when they were finished. They were pleasant to have around and such hard workers. Work ethic is important to me.
