    Walt's Quality Painting
    Walt took the time over the phone to answer all of my questions & concerns about getting the exterior of our house painted before we met face-to-face. He gave me a fair price, was punctual each day, super professional & a great communicator. He prepared a very detailed contract and encouraged me to ask questions, check his work, etc. along the way. Most importantly, he is meticulous when it comes to prep (filled in every crack & gap) and the actual painting. I also appreciated the fact that I was dealing with one person - He did all of the prep and painting himself. Since our house is built into a hill with a high vertical in the back, Walt arranged for a scaffolding company to set up before he started and built this cost into the overall price. We had one issue with the scaffolding company (they ruptured a sprinkler pipe) but Walt handled it like a pro and I barely had to get involved. He made suggestions on upkeep, one of which was to get the wood threshold of the front door entryway sanded and re-varnished so he did that too. I highly recommend that if you are looking for someone to paint the exterior of your house that you call Walt and get a bid from him. I am so happy that we went with him and would hire him again any day.

    Mark Bellingham Painting
    Mark Bellingham Painting does phenomenal work and my husband and I consider  ourselves fortunate that they left a flyer on
    our door while we were actively researching local painters to redo the exterior of our house in Moraga. From beginning to end the experience was positive, even a pleasure, and our house looks as good as new. It is actually better than new since the original builder skimped in some critical areas.
    Mark gave us a written estimate up front. It specified the dollar amount per man hour, plus 20% overhead, plus materials. There was a maximum set for man hours and the job actually came in under that. The only surprise for us was that the charge for materials was more than we were expecting, because we really had had no idea what materials would cost or indeed what materials would be needed. In addition to top quality paints and tinted primer, there was a great deal of caulk and compressible foam as well that went into weatherproofing our 2,900 sq ft house. There was a lot of protective paper and tape, and sandpaper, too. When faced with the final bill we had no regrets and felt that the cost of the entire project was very reasonable. Mark
    Bellingham?s company took a house that hadn?t been painted in 14 years, was blistering, cracking, and rotting, and got it into prime condition for weathering winter storms and blistering heat for years to come. We heartily recommend Mark Bellingham Painting for any job that falls within their purview.
    Read on if you would like a lot more detail about our experience and the various projects they did for us.
    The company is properly licensed and bonded, and all employees are covered by Workers? Compensation; I verified this for myself, via the CA Licensing Board?s website. It matters to me that Mark Bellingham cares to protect homeowners and employees alike. Indeed, the company culture is clearly one of mutual respect at every level and of pride in the work. Everyone who came to our property was introduced to me and was always personable and considerate, toward my household, my property, and each other.
    They took on three distinct projects for us: (1) they tore down and took away all evidence of a large pergola that was too close to the house and falling apart; (2) they refinished a much-abused, moss-covered, cracked hardwood swing; and (3) they redid the entire exterior of our single-level, wood-framed house.
    The Pergola:  We were very grateful that they took on the task of removing our pergola prior to painting the house. It was outside their normal scope, but they did it graciously and for a very reasonable cost. It was a huge help since it would have interfered with their painting. It demonstrated, too, the thoroughness with which they clean up after themselves, for there wasn?t a single nail left behind.
    The Swing:  They totally restored our Jarrah wood swing, cleaning it completely, sanding it with increasingly fine sandpaper, filling in a  distressing crack, and guiding me through choosing a new stain. Then, when rain began to fall, our foreman, Tito, covered the swing with a giant tent and tied it down so thoroughly that it withstood a major storm, giving the swing the protection it needed to dry completely. Eventually he took away all evidence of that project as well, leaving us a beautifully restored
    piece of furniture returned to its spot in our garden.
    The House:  It is inadequate to say that they ?painted? our house, because they did so much more than hose down the house and apply new paint. Their website goes into a lot of detail about the process and I highly recommend reading it. I can vouch that they did everything articulated there. We have had our house ?painted? before, but not at all like this.
    They meticulously scraped, caulked, cleaned, and repaired every inch of the house. Wherever hardware could be removed (door handles, flag pole, brass numbers), they took it off so as to paint underneath it. With a razor blade, they removed old glue and paint from the small glass panes in a door, prior to painting the wood framing that surrounded them. They painted the
    sides of our ?French Cut? trim, something the previous painter had neglected to do, probably because it was time consuming and required a deft touch. It looks amazing. Where they used a sprayer to apply paint, they would follow it up with brushes. The newly painted wood looks positively luxurious.
    Where repair work was minimal they cleaned, protected, filled, and finished it so it looked new. When they found severe rot, as in the wood framing surrounding one of our chimneys, they recommended complete rebuilding, offered their carpenter, and carried out our wishes. We were grateful we took their advice, for, in addition to being rotted, the old wood showed early signs of termite infestation. The original builders of our house hadn?t bothered to prime the inside of the chimneys. Mark?s carpenter did beautiful work and charged the same rate as the painters. (His was the only name I never caught actually, because he arrived at our house and went straight up onto the roof to get to work).
    When they discovered our gutters were full of leaves they showed us a photo and, with our permission, cleaned them for us. The cost was comparable to what we usually pay. The timing, too, couldn?t have been better, for it rained that night. It is worth mentioning that this work all took place in December. I had been very worried about rain compromising the paint job, but
    they worked around any moisture very sensibly. For example, one morning Tito arrived, on schedule as usual, to let me know that they would be starting late that day in order to give the sun time to finish drying the house.
    Tito always kept me abreast of what was going on. He was an absolute pleasure to work with. I can?t sing his praises enough. He has excellent communication skills, is very personable, and answered every question with thoroughness and respect. Every couple days he took me for a walk-around to demonstrate and discuss everything that was happening. Every member of the
    crew (Jonathan, Cruz, and Mike) was cheerful, detail-oriented, and industrious.
    Mark was always involved, too, even if from afar. He was there at the start to introduce everyone and discuss the projects with them. He was on site a from time to time to see how things were progressing and bring me up to date. He followed up with me at the end to ensure that everything was cleaned up--which it was--, that the touch-up paint had been left behind--which
    it had been--, and that we were pleased with the work--which we are! And I know he was in close contact with Tito throughout. My husband and I liked Mark from the start and we couldn?t be more pleased that we chose him in the end. He?ll be our first choice in the future, for projects large and small, and we?ll hope to see Tito and his team again as well.

    Mark Bellingham Painting
    Mark advised during the bidding process that he'd likely not be the cheapest provider, but that he and his crew would provide superior service using only the best products.
      He delivered exactly as promised.  Although his schedule delayed our project some time, when he could start our job, his crew arrived as expected and wasted no time getting to the job .
      His workers were diligent, professional, accommodating, and knew their trades well.  Mark came by several times during the process to do "job walks" and insure that things were progressing to his expectations.
      The crews arrived early, worked late, and always cleaned up after themselves.  When the weather threatened to turn humid (read "rainy") one afternoon, they left the job site well before it turned, as a professional team would.
      Our house looks better than it ever did, and I give credit to Mark and his crew for that appearance.  
      Perhaps Mark Bellingham Painting wasn't the cheapest game in town, but I'm very glad I hired him and I believe I got fair value for the money.
       I highly recommend his firm to anyone in need of paint work and plan to hire him in the future for some interior work I need done.

    SG Construction
    The vendor was on time but was not familiar with the type of fence I wanted.  We discussed and he said an estimate would arrive shortly.  I never received an estimate nor did anyone followup with me to see if I was interested.  I check my spam folder - I find it disappointing that Angies List has contractors who don't follow through as it makes me suspicious of any of the business listed.

    Walt's Quality Painting
    Existing paint on our kitchen walls, windows, molding and baseboard was oil based.  Walt repainted with Benjamin Moore Oil paint and did a GREAT job.  He was meticulous, and very professional.  He recommended preventative maintenance on the kitchen window exterior surfaces and he spotted things in the kitchen that we had overlooked, and he took care of them with no extra cost (sanding, caulking, etc.).  We give him our highest possible recommendation.

    M&M Construction & Home Design
    These guys are VERY busy... Eli and Moran (pronounce Moe-Han) are straight shooters and probably more NY than SF in terms of style, but they are veryknowledgableand honest about their work.  
    They can control a lot of the costs because they have their own painters, electricians, plumbers as workers - not as subs - this is great from a timing perspective for getting the job done and the liability for work - you know who is responsible for repairs.   They also do the design work on the kitchens / bathrooms so you don't have to go outside.    Our initial meeting was pretty interesting as we each had to learn about communication styles and determine how we would/could communicate with each other if they were our contractor.   The only drawback with them is that they do have specific design ideas and - while they maybe valid - their style makes them come off as pushy vs informative (for example the use of stamped concrete vs pavers for our back yard or stucco vs siding for the back of our house - these rest is siding they suggested stucco for the expansion).  
    Their estimate was very detailed but did leave a lot of room for questions about materials, etc... definitely a two step process - and maybe three.   
    We did not end up using them, but they were a strong consideration and our #2 choice.

    Walt's Quality Painting
    The quality and workmanship of his work was exceptional.  He responded and showed up promptly to our request for an estimate.  He was honest and helpful during the estimate and gave us a price on the spot which he stuck to.  The job required 4 full consecutive days.  Walt was prompt every day @ 8am and worked diligently til 4 pm.  When he left every day he cleaned up the jobsite then retaped and papered the next morning.  He finished the job on schedule and we have already given him verbal ok to paint the outside of our home when the weather allows.  The best part was that he did the work himself.  At no time were there any strangers in our home.

    Mark Bellingham Painting
    Mark Bellingham Painting left a flyer on my front door. I needed exterior painting, so I called him to give me an estimate. He spent quite a bit time around my house, took my email address and promised to send me a proposal. But I never received anything from him. What a waste of time! Would not want to do business with him.

    I have used several companies to do this kind of work in the past and had another company bid on this work. Cand J provided the best solution at a competitive price.
    After the first estimator dropped the ball, the work was bid and completed in a timely manner. I gave them a B for professionalism because the crew did a minimal job of cleaning up the job site, even after being pushed to do more . It is important for the homeowner to inspect the work before the crew leaves.
    The new gates with metal frames are very sturdy and a big improvement over the original construction.

    Brannick and Associates Painting Services
    All was great!  Patrick called  and came out the day after for a bid, started the day after that.  Most work was done in one day except for one corbel that needed to dry out prior to repair.  Very tidy, good workers, good phone updates.  Highly recommended.
