I used CertaPro for the exterior of an older home in Long Beach. I?d been through all the personal referrals searching for a qualified painter with proper insurance and licensing ? very frustrating - so tried the Costco referral program and the Better Business Bureau. CertaPro had excellent referrals, an A rating from BBB and all the appropriate insurance and licensing ? a huge relief. I contacted Pat, he met me at the house on a Wednesday - very nice, very professional ? we walked the job and he provided me a detailed written quote with measurements, pictures, my exact paint selections, and an excellent price on the spot. I signed the contract that Friday, the crew started Monday, and by that Thursday afternoon, the work was done. Eight days ? meeting to finished! The painting crew ? run by Phillip - was professional, qualified, and the painting work was great. In addition to straight exterior painting of an older stucco house including trim, they handled stucco repairs, some light concrete patch, they hung new window flower boxes, painted concrete patios and rod iron fences and even the garage interior. Everything was cleaned up every day and they worked seamlessly with the separate electrical and window covering contractors. During the work, my realtor along with several neighbors commented about how the job was progressing quickly and what a great job they were doing. I am very pleased with the quality of work, timeliness, professionalism and value. Pat Wade runs CertaPro of Huntington Beach professionally, like a business ? as it should be ? and it was refreshing to find. I didn?t hesitate to provide this reference.
