Wanting to improve their curb appeal, Windermere, Florida, members Edward and Barbara Wilcox hired highly rated Regal Painting of Central Florida to paint their home’s exterior, repair and paint the deck, paint the fence, sand and seal the paver driveway and sand and resurface the front wood doors with a faux stain finish.

Wilcox says he chose the company, located in Winter Springs, Florida, based on their positive reviews, an interview with the owner and a visit at a recent job in his neighborhood that was similar the one he wanted done. Also, they had several crews that could start in a week. “Other good painters couldn’t start for several weeks,” Edward says.

While they weren’t the cheapest bid, Edward says they were priced fairly.

Wilcox says the door didn’t come out as he’d hoped, and the sand between the driveway pavers washed away within the first few days, due to the sealer not being applied thick enough. But those issues wouldn’t keep him from hiring this company again.

“They did an outstanding job on the house painting, the deck repair and paint, and the fence paint, which was 90 percent of the total scope.”

Regal Painting started and ended the project on time.

Edward says everyone who has seen the house likes the richer color that he and Barbara chose, including his neighbors.

“At least two neighbors asked for estimates for their homes as mine was being done,” he adds.
