My wife and I hired
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew to replace some exterior shingles and rotted siding, rebuild our front porch, and paint the exterior of our house. It took
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
a little while to get back to us with a quote. We say that not as any great criticism; but if you have a similar experience, stick with him, because the work is great and it was not indicative of
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's communication during the project.
Shortly after we accepted the quote,
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's crew of carpenters,

Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, came by our house and went over every little detail of their work in minute detail with us. They eventually re-built our entire front porch, replaced rotted siding, and installed new doors. They communicated with us throughout the process, including pointing out areas where additional rotting was discovered, and where additional work was required. The carpenters worked from 8 a.m. through 6:30 p.m. every day and we were very impressed with the final product, especially the porch.
Our experience was similar with the painters.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's foreman,
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, is simply a great guy and very good at what he does. We felt like they paid attention to the smallest details, including doing things that we felt were beyond the scope of what we expected from a painter. By way of example, they sanded, cleaned and refinished a wood ceiling on our porch and wood doorstep on out front door. They also power-washed our walkway and driveway. Again, they consulted with us throughout the process, so there were no surprises when we came home from work at the end of the day.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was also there throughout the process, checking on both the carpenters and painters. There were a few occasions where he found issues that we would never have noticed and had his guys make the repairs. Overall, we are very happy with their work and think our house looks great.

and his crew were a pleasure to deal with from start to finish.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very professional and thorough in providing the estimate and explaining the work to be done. We appreciated that he gave us an estimate for labor only, allowing us to select the paint at cost. The members of the crew were also very professional and courteous. They did a great job and went beyond what we expected. We were very happy with the work!

Attention to detail. got rid of mold/mildew in rafters of porch. scraped spots that needed it on deck and porch. Efficient, timely, pleasant.

This is mostly the same review I left on yelp, I don't think I have ever given a bad review, but I do not want anyone else living through what I did/am.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
came out, he did a great job of asking and answering questions. His bid was great and I thought I had found a great company to work with. That all changed when the 2 man paint crew showed up. The first clue that something was wrong was that the started to claim I okayed them painting all the door hinges. Which the did even though I said no and contacted
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
via phone about it. They also were painting around anything that would take work to remove. In addition to painting around things they just painted over anything else in the way. Upstairs closet and doors were left original color, how can you mis that !
So what happens when I change door nobs or get a new smoke detector ? There would be a unpainted surface to deal with. Then to add insult to injury after I asked to have all the blinds removed to paint under them (instead of around), they did that but never put them back up and we lost the all the hardware for it. i still have no window coverings in my house.
On a good note,
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
kept coming back and fixed things I found. However to this day (2 months later) I am still finding un-painted places. So all in all this was (and still is) a horror show. Seem incredible even to me and I lived it but they also painted rooms the wrong color (
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
fixed it).
I would look else where and be very carful, they just left today claiming I told them the house would be empty so they were not responsible, I did say it would be empty of humans and furniture, but didn't realize I was suppose to remove every thing in the house even if it was nailed/screwed down. Come on guys, this was a totally un-professional job and you know it.
I did find out my crew got fired, so was a test case for some crew you found on the street. It is not fair what you did and you should have made it right without me having to find every little thing and call you up bout it. I do thank you for not totally abandoning me and fixing the issue I ask asked about (except missing blinds hardware). The blinds should have been replaced before you left and I am still dealing with them.

After approximately one year we noticed a few cracks and bubbles on the excellent paint job we had done in the summer of 2013. We called
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and he was at our house reviewing our complaint within 2 hours. He had his crew come out later that same day to do the minor touchup work required. This response time exceeded our expectations.
- Paul M.

Owners were great to work with. The quality of work done was exceptional. Workers were clean and respectful of keeping other living spaces free of dust/dirt. Will consider them for future jobs.
- Wayne E.

Overall, we were very pleased with the services we received. The owner/contractor came to our home himself for the estimate, along with a co-worker. They were very detailed oriented with respect to the estimate and provided us with a fair price for the work to be completed (including materials). The only complaint we had was that on occasion it could be difficult to reach them by phone, but they always returned our calls. In this day and age people are very busy, Mr.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is no exception to that. It later proved more efficient for both of us to communicate via text, which allowed us to continue with our days until we were both available for a phone conversation. We were so pleased with the quality of work and professionalism that we are looking to use them again for a second repair project.

My parents have lived in their home for over 40 years. The last time they painted their home was 15 years ago with texture coating. Since their paint lasted for so many years, they wanted to use texture coating again.
I contacted
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. for an estimate, after seeing their “Big Deal” advertised for texture coating on Angie’s List. When
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
met with us, walked the property, and explained in detail what prep work would be done to the home before the texture coating was applied (remove dirt and loose stucco from the home, sand the wood, seal windows, clear area around the house, etc.). He even gave us great suggestions on the color selections that were available to us.
It sounded too good to be true; so much so that it took us four (4) months to make a commitment to get the work done. However, we agreed on the scope of work and a start date. The
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
team arrived on time. They were very professional and courteous. The Project Manager (PM) introduced himself and told us that if we had any questions while the work was being performed, he would be happy to help us.
The PM always communicated with us about what they were doing, what was going to happen the next day, and when they would be back to finish the work. At the end of each day, the team cleaned up the entire work area. As a home owner, it was nice to have people that cared enough about our home to make sure the job site was always clean.

On day four (4) of the project, after being out all morning, we pulled up in front of the house and could not believe our eyes. The team had applied the texture coating to my parent’s home, and it was beautiful! My parents were so happy about the work that
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had done. It literally looked like a new house, the one they bought 40 years ago.
We have received so many compliments from our friends and neighbors about the texture coating, the color and the overall preparation done by the
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
team. Texture coating is a pricey project, but it protects your home from the elements, and it will last longer than any regular paint job done on your home.
My parents are happy with the experience and work performed by
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
. I will be using them to texture coat my home as well.

Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was very thorough and professional when he came to check out our house. He provided an estimate in a very timely manner and we felt it seemed fair. We went with him / CertPro because, after talking to several other painters, he was spot-on in his eye for detail and industry knowledge.

We had no set date, but knew it would probably be September. We were contacted to alert us that folks were coming to pressure wash the house on the Tuesday after Labor Day. No one could be home on that date, but it worked out well (although our very protective dog may have a different outlook on things). We weren't sure when the next phase of prep work would happen, so expected notification on that as well. I was taken by surprise when a crew showed up two days later and I was totally unprepared. But, the surprise factor dissipated pretty quickly as I saw everyone dive in and get to work immediately. There was a LOT of scraping and sanding to be done.

Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
's crew was great. Very professional, very polite, and understanding of the fact that we both had to consider our jobs as well. They did a great job with everything. They were consistent, hard workers through a variety of weather conditions: very hot and humid to quite damp, chilly temps.

There were a couple communication snafus, but a call or email to
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
usually took care of matters. we've passed along our suggestions for possibly helping such a situation.

Note: If you're having any carpentry done as part of your contract, take the time to walk with the foreman and his right-hand man/woman to ensure all is understood. don't assume they understand all the small details in the contract. Nothing against them. Just be very clear and no one will be unexpectedly surprised when it's a little late in the game. We would suggest that with any work you're having done on your house.

My husband took a couple half days off to be at home while work was going on and got to know the crew. On the last day, they went around to ensure the detail work was just right, so the house would look its best.

In the end, the house looks bloody maaaahhhhvelous!

As a side note, folks, please do the right thing. Provide the crew with waters, sodas, Gatorade, etc. in an ice-filled cooler. Throw in energy bars, fruit, candy bars, etc., if you can. Access to a bathroom is essential, too. It's the right thing to do, but maybe folks don't think about it. It makes the crew's life a bit easier, which, in the end, will benefit everyone.

I contacted
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, owner of
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and asked him to come out for an estimate on a painting job. He
came out when he said he would and even called me to let me know he was on his way, which I appreciated.
I had just put a new roof on and wanted all the trim (drip
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
,facia,and soffets) painted to compliment the roof color.
I also had
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
take a look at painting my front porch (all original wood), back patio wooden deck, exterior doors including front entrance door and sidelights, posts, and new wooden cypress shutters. Additionally, we had new cypress construction for window awnings to support metal roofing.
It was a lot of tedious work involving primer, 2 different color deck paint, trim paint (2 colors) and wood stain for the cypress. I wanted to preserve the saw blade
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
in the cypress and
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
matched the wood stain with the house trim color. It came out beautiful.
Couple things you need to know. I am a bit of a perfectionist especially when it comes to my house. Hiring a contractor is always scary for me because I am usually under-whelmed with their work.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
however is an unbelievable detail person which was such a welcome relief. He and his crew were extremely neat and detail oriented. I was concerned that the painters would accidentally over spray my new roof in painting the drip
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and trim. He assured me it would be perfect and it was. The whole job was perfect and
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
was on the job almost constantly having his crew handle things to his satisfaction which to my surprise, was more rigid than mine. When they finished at the end of every day, they cleaned up and you couldnt tell they were there.
Another positive attribute of
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
and his crew was that he took so much time with us before starting the job on getting the colors just right. He made recommendations on paint color to my wife and I that we had never considered. He was a pleasure to deal with as he truly wanted us to be happy with the job. He wouldnt accept any payment till he was done and the job was fully inspected. I loved the job they did. My house is beautiful.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
had one of his guys even paint the concrete stem wall of my house ( and we had not hired him to do this) because with all the new paint, it looked necessary. He never even charged us for this. I truly cant say enough about
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
, his work ethic, and his crew. I cant remember the last time I was overwhelmed with excellent quality work like this.
Ironwood Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
are exactly that........
