Overall, I think the people did a "fair" job. They definitely worked really hard in very hot weather; I felt bad for them. However, they did not have the attention to detail that I would have liked. They got several spots of paint on my deck, lawn and my outside hose. The The team also took 2 days longer than estimated. The original team was replaced by the supervisor and another person to finish up.
To his credit, the supervisor did try to clean up the paint splotches and he told me to call him if I found any more. However, I felt really awkward calling him after the fact every time I found some small drip, so I didn't call him. They left the sign that says
that they never picked up and I had to deal with throwing it away.
People were all very nice, but I would not use them again.

I needed to do some maintenance on our house in preparation for selling, and
gave us estimates for three different jobs: one for pressure washing and painting one side of our house, another for cleaning our roof, and another for priming and painting a peaked section of siding and trim that was only accessible from the roof. After deciding to do some of the work ourselves, we ended up hiring
for the priming and painting of the second level siding and trim.
was very responsive. He stopped by the same day I called him to give me the estimates, and he was able to schedule the work in between some larger jobs he had the following week. He also gave me suggestions on the jobs I decided to do on my own. He and his wife completed the job in about three hours, and it looks great!

The job did not go well, and only after 4 call-backs after the job was supposed to be finished was I even close to saying "good enough" (or did I just get tired of complaining?). The painters were young and not experianced at painting old homes, even though I was told that experienced painters would be on the job. One of them had never heard of a double-hung windows. One of them quit after two days (for mysterious reasons). The replacement painter was less experianced than the one who quit.
Paint brushes and rollers were rarely, if ever, washed in their week at my house. Overnight they were simply left submerged in paint with a plastic cover over top. During the day, rollers were often left hanging inside a half filled paint bucket. As you might imagine, they didn't put down a very smooth coat of paint. In addition, the painting was almost exclusively done with rollers at the end of a long extension pole, and with the paint bucket on the ground, the roller on the end of a 10 foot pole. The rollers were not reloaded with paint nearly as often as I would have liked to have seen. I was concerned that less than 2 gallons of trim paint were used on the entire house, with all the 5 inch wide trim around all doors and windows, and the 12 inch wide trim (

boards, belly board,

board) as well as 3 gable dormers with their additional trim.
Sure enough when the job was supposed to be done, many sections of trim were inconsistant in color (White) . It looked "splotchy" and there were streaks in the white trim where it varied from bright to milky white. Whether that was due to paint that was stretched too thinly, or from rollers that were not clean, I do not know, but something was done wrong.
The more I looked, the more additional defects I discovered. For $9000 I shouldn't have to climb up on a ladder to inspect every nook and cranny on a two-story house, but that's what it took. I discovered sections that were completely missed, others were painted so thinly that the regions that required small patchs of primer could be seen from the ground ( this was often the case in high regions that were difficult to reach). Some nail heads were not caulked (the contract called for nail head caulking), a few wood joints were left uncaulked as well (one was over 1/4 inch wide). A dryer vent was painted shut, something we didn't discover until the next load of laundry resulted in the laundry room filling up with steamy exhaust from our gas dryer.
The painter's manager, who came by only every 2 or 3 days when the painting was in progress, was called about the issues. He sent one of the painters back for an hour to do some touch up (he came without a ladder, so only some gutters could be worked on. Another call resulted in the manager himself coming over, and he listened to my complaints. He came back a third time with a helper and they repainted the facia rafters, the unpainted sections of window sills, the belly boards, the fieze-board edges, and fixed the dryer vent.
After they left, I went back up on my ladder to inspect the work, and most of it was ok, but certain edges of trim boards were once again either skipped (or insufficiently covered), or maybe they couldn't get their rollers to reach into the tight spots where they should have used a brush (who knows?)
So, on the 4th return, the last defects were finally corrected. To be honest though, my confidence that I have found all the defects that exist on a large house is not high. For the kind of money I spent, I expected not have to worry about such things since there really is no way that you can inspect every square inch of a paint job.
The manager who I worked with was responsive to my requests. However, I have to ask, "Why was it necessary to have any call- backs at all?" I could easily forgive a small spot missed here or there, but 30 foot sections of splotchy gutters and facial rafters are another story. At best call-backs are an inconvience to the homeowner, but more importantly they reflect a lack of quality in the work done in the first place.

Aloha Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
is very responsive to phone calls and getting bids in for work. He shows up on time and is very professional and friendly. At times other family members help him and they are all very friendly too. His overall work is excellent. He goes the extra mile to make sure that everything is done exactly right. He cleans up the work area really well, nothing is left on the ground or around the house. I will continue to use him as I fix up my place.

The house looks really good especially since the last time we had it painted we made a major mistake with the color. They helped us choose a color which we have found can be really tricky. I was surprised at how quickly they got it done too once the weather cooperated.

I had such a great experience with
Aloha Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
on our interior job that I hired him to paint the exterior too. As with the interior, he carefully prepared the surfaces. He also protected the plants and ground before painting. He works efficiently, cleanly and meticulously - did such a nice job staining the front door. He really knows what he is doing. In addition, he is very pleasant and respectful.

The exterior paint on my house was in bad shape and I needed it to look great for selling the house.
Aloha Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
gave me his very competitive bid as an attachment to an email, which I really appreciated. He consistently showed up when he said he would, worked very efficiently and cleanly and cleaned up after himself completely. His work was immaculate. I do not live in the house, he sent me photos via email of his progress, something I had not asked for nor expected. He was unfailingly polite and pleasant, eager to work and a real delight personally. I can highly recommend his work - he subsequently did work for my boyfriend; inside painting and outside, same great results.

Excellent experience from start to finish. Although their bid was the highest we received, we chose
Aloha Exterior Painters Provider Name Locked
over their competitors because they hand paint with rollers and brushes rather than spray painting. This provided a heavier coating on our badly weathered cedar and T1-11 siding. Everyone we dealt with, the Estimator, the Color Consultant the Power Wash Crew and the Painting Crew, was courteous and punctual. The house was power washed a few weeks prior to painting. The Color Consultant helped us select paint colors and put samples on the side of our house so we could see them. The painting crew took down all outside light fixtures and downspouts, scrapped all loose paint and rough surfaces, caulked as need around all windows and doors and applied at least two coats of paint (including tinted primer) on all surfaces to be painted. The house now looks 100% brighter and better than it did before.
