We had the exterior of our house and garage painted recently. John, Tony and the job supervisor, Angel, were all professional, punctual and attentive to our wants. The job was projected to take about 4 -5 days and that's exactly what it took. The results are wonderful - we couldn't be happier. We had already known going in what our color scheme would be but a fresh coat always brings new life to t...

I can’t say enough good things about John and his CertaPro team. After a nightmare experience with another contractor, I was hesitant to bring anyone else into my home. I explained my bad experience to John and he immediately put me at ease, explaining every single thing they would be doing and how long it would take. His team came to work on time, ensured everything was thoroughly covered before ...

John Villar CertaPro Painters As I approached finding a painter for two painting projects I felt confident in my abilities based on my five prior house painting experiences. Out of all of the bids and interactions John Villar Took the most time and was the most accommodating of all. He had to meet with me on two occasions and my wife on the third to select the color and finalize our agreement. Joh...

The entire experience from start to finish was a complete customer service oriented operation with very professional, friendly, and helpful personnel. John provided a reasonable estimate and provided thorough insight into every phase of the process. Fernando (28 years experience) and his crew addressed every question and concern that we had. Moreover, they always arrived on time and cleaned-up aft...

I was very pleased. John came out and gave us an estimate. The price was right on target for a job of this kind. John told us he would be able to paint the rooms within the next couple of weeks and kept in touch with us to let us know how his schedule was going in terms of when he would be able to schedule us in. We locked in a date about five days or so ahead of time, which gave us plenty of time...

The crew was extremely nice and professional. Dan who was the lead crewman for the painting of our home, addressed every concern I had. He also went above and beyond expectation. When I met John for the original estimate he was very professional, kind, and helpful. When my husband and I had a difficult time deciding on colors I called John in a panic and he literally arrived in minutes. Our home l...

John Villar gave a very professional overview of his company and their values, and offered a competitive price for the work. We thought the job would be well done but sadly this wasn't the case. 1. We understood that the work would probably start around the first week of September 2017. However, the date kept being moved back until September 25th which meant we had to push back other work we had a...

Service Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to review our business. We take great pride in the quality of our work and without good, honest customer feedback, it's difficult to improve. Obviously, in this case, I'm very sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations. As you stated in your response, I did offer to personally conduct a complete walk-thru of the project with you and let you know that my cre...

John Villar, Northridge CertaPro owner, came out for an estimate, and discussed every detail of the paint job that would be completed. He was such an informative gentleman and very patient in answering our questions. The proposal he sent within a few days was precisely detailed with everything we discussed. The contract addressed every aspect of the service to be provided, and this made us confide...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
The exterior of our home needed painting. Much of our wood was peeling, there were hairline cracks in many areas of our stucco, and our wood patio cover and screened-in structure of our patio was in such bad shape. The preparation work that was needed was extensive!
