I submitted a quote request here on Angie's List for exterior house paint. CertaPro Berkeley owner contacted us within hours, to set up a time for estimator to come out. They then requested a time change, which we accommodated. Estimator arrived on time, we spent 45 minutes with them going over the project, then were told our estimate would be sent within a couple of days, but no later than that S...

So sorry that you did not received the proposal. We typically send the proposals out within 24 -48 hours. I checked our system, looks like the proposal was written up on 6/8/19,with all details listed out. I wonder if maybe the email that was sent went into a junk mail folder. So sorry if this caused issues for you, this is not how we operate. We have had issues in the past with emails going to ju...

Thank you for taking the time to post a review, and glad that you are happy with the results. The guys did a very nice job. It is not easy to work with older wood shingles, and the outcome looks great. Take care

After reaching out to CertaPro, they promptly messaged back and setup a date to come and review what needed to be done, totally around our schedule. When it was time for the actual job the team showed up and quickly prepped the room(s) that needed to worked on and fast forward 3 days we have a beautiful new feel to the house. There were no issues with the work done and they were meticulous in maki...

Soumil and his crew were top notch. Quotes were received in a timely fashion and the work met expectations of both the timeline and price. If we noticed something it was addressed immediately. Overall, one of the better experiences we've had working with contractors.

Excellent responsiveness and attention to detail by work crew, foreman, and project manager. Juan Diaz, our foreman, was always available for questions and specific directions on what was needed. Juan was wonderful throughout the project! The project manager kept us informed about the planned project start and what could cause delays. He gave me the name and phone of our foreman well in advance of...

I was VERY pleased with the CertaPro Painters (Berkeley) team - from Kevin (the sales guy who came out to scope the work and provide a quote), to Deon (Production Manager), Hieme (foreman), and the guys who did the prep, painting, and carpentry work that was required. They were easy to work with and professional, and the quality of work was really good. I particularly appreciated how flexible and ...

The experience with CertaPro was perfect. They took a lot of time to make a careful bid, which was a bit lower than their competitors. They scheduled the work promptly, but were responsive to our request for a schedule change. The crew was very careful and professional, and communication was good. When we panicked for a moment that we might have chosen the wrong colors, Certa Pro was very responsi...

After several emails back and forth about the scope of work, they decided my location areas too far for the job. I searched for deals in my area and they came up. Also the address was in the first email. I am on a deadline as I have household goods on the way in a big move and they waisted 3 days with a slow wishy wash response. Thankfully, Angie List was helpful in getting a refund.
