House Painting reviews in Lake Forest

    A little rocky to start. The original crew lead got sick and they needed to substitute a new crew. However, "how do we make it right?" was their attitude throughout the job. Strong finish and a very satisfied customer. Highly recommend.

    First off, you get what you pay for. We wanted a quality job done with top of the line paint. (the painter we used for years retired 2 years ago so we needed a new painter) We did get a bid that was lower but that contractor wanted to use, what we felt, was very inferior paint and said he could complete the job in 3 days. That told us that he was going to do a quick, cheap job. We always look for the right job at the right price. I literally met Dana Nelson while shopping in the local Dunn Edwards Paint store and got his card. The Dunn Edwards employee who was helping both of us told me later what a great guy he was. Dana has been in business since 1980, is licensed, bonded, insured and has worked by referrals and word of mouth. After coming to my home for an estimate I received a professional proposal via email the same night. His price was exactly what we expected to pay for a top notch paint job with the best paint available (we used 3 different colors). We have two sets of double French doors. Also, lots of detail wood trim on the front of our 2 story home which has a steep light weight concrete tile roof and two very, very tall painted chimneys. Dana and his crew spent 2 full days prepping my house. They masked everything. Every seam on my garage doors and siding was caulked to create a flawless paint job. They removed all light fixtures and door hardware. He used special products to patch chimney cracks and foundation patching for excellent long term durability. He covered everything with drop clothes, he must have 50 of them. Every evening my home was left neat and organized. He took special care on my steep roof to be safe, not cracking any tiles or leaving any overspray on my tile roof. (a real pet peeve when I see it on other houses). Oh, and they even play great music while they work. (k-earth 101, the oldies station in my area!!) The result? Six days later, my home looks beautiful with crisp lines where colors change, no overspray anywhere and all my plants were in the same condition they were before the paint job. Would I use him again? You bet! In fact, I now call Dana Nelson, "my painter".

    They were very good, very professional, very thorough. Everything about them was good but their price was a lot higher than the other quotes. But as far as their professionalism and the way they conducted themselves they weren't any problems there. 

    The estimate was good, very thorough and detailed, just high.

    I've used OC Wide painting for a number of paint and repair projects and the work is consistently top quality. The employees are on time, quiet, and respectful of people and property. The owner, Ondrej is completely involved maintaining quality, cleanup, and expertise. Pricing is very competitive especially considering his work is guaranteed and has insurance, including workman's compensation to protect the homeowner.

    Ben with Lunar Painting is very good to work with.  We had to postpone the painting start date three times because another contractor who was doing some other work on our home did not complete the job as expected. Ben was very understanding and was happy to reschedule for us.

    When Ben and his crew were able to begin the job they did a very good job.  They were prompt, did all of the prep work as needed and requested.  They cleaned up well after each day on the job.

    We are very pleased with how the process went and the end result.

    Ben was very professional when he showed up to give me an estimate. He was courteous and on time. His team showed up everyday on time to work. They did a wonderful job and ask how I liked their work. At the end of the job, they made...

    I was impressed.

    One of the best experiences I have had with a company.  Nathan, the Project Manager, was very kind, and went over all aspects of the project.  He called to follow up as the project progressed.  His crew was polite, professional, and on time.  He quoted me an approximate finishing target date, and was within two days of his prediction.  After completion, he came back, and went over the project with me to make sure everything was as it should be.  I would highly recommend Nathan, and his company to anyone.  Charne` P.

    I chose Jim because he was an owner operated company and he stayed the entire time until the job was finished.  I hate having to harass contractors to come because they are trying to do more than 1 job at a time and I didn't have to do this with Jim.  He was punctual, cleaned up after every day, had great attention to detail and did a fabulous job!  I would totally use him again on future jobs and will recommend him to all my friends and neighbors.

    Overall a great quality job and a great experience.       Jim is a professional, and always kept me up to date on the status.     He was also very helpful and accommodating with us in choosing best colors.         I will call Jim for all my painting projects.     I highly recommend him.

    I'm a big fan of small business and local contractors.  After getting estimates from five painting contractors I went with Jim for several reasons: lives in the Lake Forest/Mission Viejo area, he was very personable so I knew I could ask dumb questions and get informed but friendly answers, he had the best plans to fix up some dry-rot wood issues I had a a few exterior beams, and he had a great bid.
    I'll be honest that it took a while to get him out here, he had a lot of business (late summer, no surprises there) so I had to wait for 4-5 weeks to get the work done.  But once they started, they were great.  I was able to give him a couple of paint chips, tell him what I wanted done, and everything went off without a hitch.
    Jim and his assistant, Chris, kept everything nice and clean so you could barely tell the house was getting painted when they weren't here.  They were available to talk each morning if I had questions (and I did).  They were always personable and friendly at all times.  Most importantly, I am very happy with quality of the work - my house looks amazing.
