House Painting reviews in Fair Oaks

    Viking Painting
    Viking Painting did an excellent job at painting the outside of my house! They answered all my questions in advance of the work, regularly arrived on time, finished within the estimated timeframe and cleaned up everything beautifully! Rob is very knowledgeable on color options and all things about painting & all of the crew was super responsive in making sure I was happy with the work. The actual painting was top notch and there was no mess, drips, drops or disrupted landscape. This is the first time I've reviewed anybody on Angie's list (or anywhere!) and it reflects my satisfaction with this company.

    Jays Painting Service Inc
    Jay and his crew were great! They were on time (or early) every day and did an excellent job. This is an old house and needed lots of prep work and they were very attentive to all the details and the clean up. Jay responded immediately to my calls or texts and really wanted to make sure we were pleased with our color choices. They were all very professional and we would definitely recommend them.

    T.L.C.PAINTING COMPANY
    Great! We are very picky because this home has its original clear heart redwood siding, and we wanted a finished result that was respectful of the siding and it's quality and irreplaceability, but with an upbeat and modern and fresh look.

    Jays Painting Service Inc
    I hired Jay's team to paint a duplex, as well as address some dry rot repairs the previous contractor botched. I cannot overstate how amazing the place looks now. I think that John is constitutionally incapable of doing shoddy work, and his dedication to excellence shows. In addition to doing amazing work, his team was punctual, professional, and worked together as a team. This is the painter you are looking for

    Cobex Construction Group
    Here's why we really appreciate Dmitry and his crew: - Above all else, they are very pleasant, kind, trustworthy people. We're very comfortable with them working in the house when we're not home. - They are skilled and knowledgeable, and have a strong work ethic. They communicated well, showed up on time, cleaned up everything every day. They respected this as our home, and did not treat it like a construction site. - As a project manager, Dmitry was always looking for ways to save us money without taking shortcuts or cheapening the materials. Lots of options. - Many people won't take smaller jobs (like our window air conditioner mentioned above) or even call you back, but they are willing to do that level of work. They have also helped us with other house issues that popped up. In an area where it's notoriously hard to find honest people to do good work, we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found this great crew.

    Painting with Style

    It turned out very well. We liked him; his price was very competitive, lower than two other bids.  His quality was very good;   we were very happy with him. It took a week. He was very good and was lower than everybody else.

    Viking Painting
    We were very pleased with Viking throughout the entire process: bidding, scheduling, prep, painting, clean-up and follow-up. Initial response to a request for bid was timely; the bid was below competitors (who didn't bother to follow up) and even noted the specific quality of paint to be used; the prep and painting days were scheduled within a reasonable period of time and arrival to begin work was as promised; prep was thorough, including sealing obvious cracks; painting was thorough with little to no detectable overspray, drips, etc. and completed within two days; clean-up was good; follow-up on some minor paint bubbling issues was responsive and timely. Overall, the work was done completely to our satisfaction and we are already referring friends to use Viking for their painting needs.

    Bronze Painting Company
    I called on Monday, the 17th to arrange a meeting for an estimate and, to date, I never received a call back. I called another painter on the list and not only had someone answer when I called, they were out the next afternoon to inspect home and leave an estimate. Today, I accepted the estimate from the other painter.

    Custom Applications Painting
    This was the WORST experience I've ever! Custom Applications said they would be at our house on Friday to power wash, let the house dry over the weekend and then Monday to start prepping for painting on Tuesday. They started to power wash on Friday (9/2/2016). When Frank arrived he asked if I had any questions: I SAID I WANTED TO MAKE SURE HE KNEW I WANTED THE FRONT DOOR RED and I asked if he would also be painting the other side of the door (It was brand new and just primered). HE said, "No Problem." When they showed up on Friday they talked among themselves about not wanting to work on Monday. I stated that I didn't care if they started on Monday or Tuesday. We were asked to have our colors picked out on Monday so they could order/pickup the paint while prepping. Monday they called and advised they were going to go ahead and take Monday off (Labor Day) and would start Tuesday. I had no problem. This also meant I didn't have to have colors picked out until Tuesday. Tuesday comes and we have colors selected (gray body and white trim) and they prep the house and prime the house. Frank suggested we add another darker color to the roof line as it is "trendy" right now. At the last minute we reluctantly decided to add a dark grey on the roofline... Wednesday comes and we come home from work at the end of the day and the body of the house is painted the correct color but the trim is the dark grey (supposed to be only the roof line) Even our patio cover was painted dark grey. We were puzzled as to what happened. No painters on site. When I called Misty she said Frank thought the dark grey looked better on the trim and that our house would look best with TWO COLORS: Light grey for the body and dark grey for the trim!!! THE ONLY PROBLEM WITH THAT IS: WE didn't want the house to have dark grey trim!!! We thought it looked horrible! When I said we didn't like it and would like the house painted with white trim like we had previously discussed they became offended that we didn't like their opinion and immediately said that if we wanted the house painted with white trim that (its apparently difficult to paint white trim) we would have to PAY THEM AN ADDITIONAL COST ABOVE the contracted price of $3500!! FOR WORK WE NEVER APPROVED. These people didn't even send me a TEXT and ask if I would CONSIDER the dark trim!!! They just thought it looked better! They then said because they'd have to repaint they won't have time to do the shed and the front door is out. They said the front door is an individual invoice and that it would be about $500! To paint a plain (doesn't even have windows) primered front door?? I immediately felt like we were getting taken advantage of and told my husband I won't be talking to Misty anymore as I feel like she's a "middle man" that's not communicating to Frank EXACTLY how we wanted our house painted... Basically, if Frank was doing the painting we needed to talk to him directly. My husband talked to Frank and they agreed the house would get painted with the white trim, the exterior front door will get painted red and the shed was included but NOT the inside of the front door... The next day (Thursday) we came home from work to find the body of the shed painted and the house had white trim. The front door was primered with navy blue primer or spray paint OVER grey primer... They did not work a full day. Frank painted a test spot with the "Most popular color red used for front doors". Frank told me if I didn't like that red, I would need to let him know what red I wanted by 5pm. (later I figured out he was calling it the "most popular red" because he ALREADY HAD this particular "most popular" color red paint in his garage and wanted to save himself the cost of additional red paint. I didn't like the red but selected a new red and let him know at 5pm. Friday they showed up and were painting the front door. He sends a text to my husband with a photo of the red door and let him know he only put 2 coats of paint on the door BUT if we want any additional coats it would be a separate invoice and separate "job". He thought it was odd Frank was saying this additional information IN A TEXT and was unsure what he meant when talking about extra coats and additional invoices... WELL, I now know EXACTLY what they were planning to do! When you get a contract from CUSTOM APPLICATIONS, it's NOT the end the financial side of business... I don't know why they even do estimates when they are already scheming to get more money out of you in the end... The PHOTO of the door looked great... WHEN WE GOT IN FRONT OF THE DOOR: It looked like a kid had painted it!!!! It was RED AND BLUE!!! The blue spray paint shows through like it was DONE ON PURPOSE!!! It CLEARLY looks like ONE COAT of paint AND the finish (matte) doesn't really look like it belongs on a front door... We were outraged at the quality of work done on the door, shed, brick and lamp... The blue is completely shining through the red. My door actually LOOKS red AND BLUE! The shed trim is not painted AT ALL, They got paint all over our brick (unpainted), my mailbox isn't painted at all and a lamp connected to the house is half painted!? AND they're showing up at 5:00 to get their MONEY!? When the job isn't done? As you can imagine we were upset. I was not looking forward to the walk through... They showed up with their kid on the way to his Karate lesson (in a rush) with no actual "WALK THROUGH" planned. We were so shocked by their unprofessionalism that I didn't really know what to say when their kid was FRONT AND CENTER. I told them the door was unacceptable and shed, lamp and mailbox are unpainted. She said that if I wanted ANOTHER COAT ON THE FRONT DOOR that it would be an ADDITIONAL $125 and that they'd have to reschedule and come back a few weeks from now! THEY DIDN'T EVEN ADDRESS THE PAINTED BRICK! The shed, mailbox and interior front door would all need to be on a separate invoice to be done at a later time!!!!!! THEY ACTUALLY THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE THEM MORE MONEY!!!!!! I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and just assume the INTERIOR of the front door was a "throw in" and that probably wouldn't be considered the same job... BUT THE SHED, MAILBOX, BRICK, FRONT DOOR AND EXTERIOR LIGHT should all be included in the $3500!? RIGHT? NO! Apparently NOT! We went rounds and rounds with these people (They were insulting and called us "cheap" and accused us of trying to swindle them into giving us FREEBEES!) We were accused of not having our colors picked out (I knew I wanted a red door, light grey body and white trim but I didn't know the exact NAMES until we started this process! (Frank also contacted a mutual friend of ours and started telling him all about the situation AND ASKED HIM TO MEDIATE!!!) These people are BEYOND UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!!! It wasn't until I posted a photo of their "Completed work" on Facebook that they actually CARED about our house and THEIR JOB! Frank immediately said he would come over and paint the door as soon as I took the Facebook post down!!!! He was going on and on that he runs a "successful business" and I could ask this person and that person about his work! WELL, those people don't live in MY HOUSE and that's all I care about at this point: FINISHING THE WORK!!! He kept repeating himself saying he painted some local news anchor's house... Apparently THAT made him famous!? The next day (Saturday, 9/10/2016) I was still upset but decided to assess the situation, see what needs to be done, determine if I need to hire someone to finish the work OR if we can attempt to do it ourselves. I went to Sherwin Williams bright and early after I realized Frank DID NOT leave the red door paint (which it states in our contract that the paint is included in the $3500). Instead of calling them and starting the war over again I figured I AM going to be the adult in this situation and just go and BUY the paint myself! There were several painters at Sherwin Williams that Saturday morning picking up their paint for the day... After hearing my situation a PAINTER IN LINE OFFERED TO PAINT MY DOOR RIGHT THAT MINUTE if I had the paint! WELL, we found out Frank bought a GALLON of the red paint but never left it at our house AND that the paint he used was SUGGESTED to be INTERERIOR WALL PAINT and that exterior door paint was more expensive!!! SO BASICALLY, he used interior paint to paint my front door: THE NUMBER ONE MOST USED PIECE OF THE EXTERIOR... GOOD JOB FRANK! When I got home my husband was getting ready to prep for painting the shed and realized FRANK HAD LEFT ROLLERS IN OUR LEFT OVER PAINT! SO... HE KNEW we were going to have to use that paint SOON because he DID NOT FINISH PAINTING THE SHED... THEN, he left the rollers in the paint(a HUGE mess) for us to find when we HAVE TO paint the shed... My husband was furious and called Frank and he said he uses that kind (red) paint on front doors all the time and "when it's done right it looks really nice". Still doesn't change the fact that it's the WRONG paint to use on a front door!!! It's not like I can call Custom Applications in a couple months when the front door starts to chip or fade!!! I'll never let them on my property again! Eventually I had to file complaints everywhere, put up reviews everywhere and consult an attorney about getting our money back and the money we will have to pay another painter and/or the cost of painting it ourselves... I'm writing this review because I don't want other families to get swindled out of money OR get left paying $3500 THEN do all the work yourself! The bottom line is I paid Custom Applications $3500 to paint our house and shed but my husband will be spending another TWO weekends PAINTING and power washing! I have 3500 reasons why this was the biggest mistake hiring Custom Applications, I just hope to inform their future potential clients of their level of "successful" and "quality work".

    Alkema Painting
    Chris was punctual and thorough. He power washed and painted the deck and trim. A couple of areas needed repair, and he took care of it. It took two days due to the size of my deck. This is the second time I used him. I will use Chris again next year.
