Our experience with Distinct Painting Co. was excellent. The owner (Kane), the foreman (Eric), and crew (Sean and others) are courteous and considerate, and their work speaks to their skills and passion for painting. I recommend searching no further for a team to address your next painting job - call Kane. The only category not rated excellent is price, and this requires explanation. Distinct Painting Co. will not be the cheapest option, so if you are looking for a "blow and go" service, don't waste your time or their's asking for a bid. However, now that they are finished, I believe Distinct Painting Co. provides an amazing value. The cost reflects their careful preparation, high-end paints and materials, and attention to detail and quality. The saying "you get what you pay for" comes to mind. My experience started with a visit by Kane to (1) discuss my wants, (2) see the house, and (3) develop a bid. Kane promptly provided the bid, and he made himself available late at night to address my questions and provide explanations to support his bid. At first I was surprised Kane offered no flexibility on the cost (although a discount for Angie's List members was provided!), but during our conversation, the surprise turned to respect as I recognized the basis for his numbers and his confidence in his estimating skills. We requested a quick completion of the job, and we also had other contractors working on the house during the same time the painting would be ongoing, so we presented a less than ideal set of working conditions. However, Kane would only commit to what he was confident he could deliver, and he promised regular and open communication to avoid major issues. The painting progressed rapidly, the communication was frequent (and always honest!), tasks were completed as discussed, work spaces were cleaned up, and we are pleased with the end result. The final price was exactly as bid, and they wrapped up before our deadline. They addressed all the items on the punch list, and even offered to recycle old paint. Additionally, they worked around us moving into the home, including our kids' nap schedules and the kids' curiosity when awake. We had no concerns about them entering the home without us here, completing their tasks, and locking up on their way out. These guys work well together, they help each other out - their cohesion clearly reflects their understanding of what needs to be done and how to do it efficiently. It was a refreshing experience to have a contractor honor their bid, complete work within the agreed upon schedule (ahead of schedule actually), provide the quality they described during the bid, and offer a warranty they intend to stand behind - in essence to do what they said they'd do. I will use these guys in the future for my painting needs, and have no reservations in recommending them.
