Recent Review: Italian Painting Services is simply an all-around outstanding painting team from start to finish. We knew we had found the right contract the moment we gathered all our quotes (all from highly-rated L.A. area painting contractors). The quote from I.P.S. was the most detailed and professional of several companies that gave us bids, and it was amongst neither the highest nor lowest bids. We are incredibly happy with the work they performed, as the walls were restored to a condition that passes as brand new (our building was built in 1991). Our condo unit has double high ceilings, which they were able to paint without issue. Most impressive is the door and casing work, which is flawless, as there are no paint drips, pooling of paint in the panel details, or any of that amateur stuff...just beautifully painted doors with a gorgeous sheen. To be sure these guys are professionals and it shows in their work. For example, when we observed them prepping our place, we noticed that they took the time to Do It Right: taping edges, removing faceplates and door knobs, etcetera. For sure it is easier to skip this step, but again, these guys took the time to make sure things are done to a higher standard. Also, the paint they use is great: it looks great, did a great job of covering the sickly-looking off-white that was previously on the walls, and it was ultra-low VOC (i.e. it didn't smell terrible, which is great since our son was about 6-7 months old when the work was done). Also, when we wanted to add and additional bathroom to paint, we talked it over with the lead and were sent change orders that evening. A lot of the correspondence was handled over email, which was extremely convenient for us, and the price for the change order was incredibly fair. Finally, I was most impressed by their work ethic. In Los Angeles, it is easy to blame being late because of the traffic or just showing up at 10:00, 10:30, or 11:00, and just blame the freeways. These guys were terrific about showing up at 8:00 or 9:00 or whatever time they said from the start, and if there were issues or they would be unable to make a date, I was told at least a day – and often several days – in advance. We also had to contend with a flooring contractor that was habitually late and behind schedule (which demonstrated a great contrast in contractor professionalism/work ethic), and Italian Painting Services were able to handle our flooring contractor's delay with stride and patience. Based on price, quality, professionalism, and work ethic, my wife and I are incredibly pleased with the whole experience, and more importantly, the appearance and transformation of our home! I wholeheartedly recommend these guys to family and friends and to anyone reading this. As with any contractor, I definitely recommend getting a bid from these guys along with several others, and hopefully you will find that Italian is the way to go!
