House Painting reviews in Santa Cruz

  • A
    I am very exacting in the maintenance of my home. This makes this rating of Sierra Azul even more extraordinary. Scott is a perfectionist after my own heart. I hired Scott to paint my two story craftsman home in Seabright. The sun and rain had worn through the prior paint job. My once white eaves were full of mildew. Since I wanted to be on-site for the work, Scott and I locked in on a week that worked for both of us. Scott and Mike showed up on time and his team went to work carefully power washing, sanding, caulking and prepping my house for painting. As we all know, more than half of a good paint job is prep and Scott did not scrimp there. With copper gutter I was very concerned with ladder damage. Scott took care to rig up braces for all the ladders so that I didn���t have one bent gutter. The house has a lot of intricate corners. Scott���s team did a great job of getting the paint in the cracks, on the edges, but not on the gutters, windows or sidewalks. They put two coats on the sun-exposed south and west sides to stand up to the weather. Our wood front porch had been bubbling up and peeling in some areas so it got some serious prep sanding before application of a new coat of deck paint. Scott���s team is polite and courteous. They did not refuse a single of my requests for special attention to an eave or rough spot on the house. It is a rarity for me when I say that I am completely happy with the job Sierra Azul did on my house. Scott has my name as a reference. Mention the ���whale��� house and he���ll know which one you���re talking about. Oh, and did I mention they vacuumed the roof and sidewalk when they were done not leaving behind a single paint chip. Its obvious why Scott gets all the stellar reviews, he loves his work and providing customers like me a wow paint job. Excuse me now, I���m going out to my patio to sit and enjoy the view of my beautiful house. Thanks Scott!

    Bill Schroeder came recommended by my handyman, who was familiar with decks he'd seen done by Bill Schroeder's company, Spectrum Painting. Mr. Schroeder replied to my inquiry promptly and said he was booked up for two months. When I explained that I wasn't in a hurry for the work to be done but would like an estimate, he said he would come out, which he did within a few days. He measured the two backyard decks and steps that connected the two areas of the backyard. A few days later he emailed his bid for $800. Since it referred only to "decks" and not to the steps (which are not connected to either deck), I emailed for clarification: "I know that you measured the steps up to the gate between the lower and upper decks but they aren't mentioned in the description. Did you include those? Could you modify the bid to reflect them?" His reply was: "All the decks are included in the back yard." That did not address the question of the steps. I then phoned him, left a message that said his bid was good, and that I wanted to talk with him to finalize the arrangement, thinking that a phone call would clarify the question of the steps. He never contacted me again. Also, I had asked him when he visited my yard if he knew of someone who could make me a screen door. He said he did and that he would send me the person's contact information. His email that included the bid did not say anything about a carpenter, so I had also asked him about that. In his reply that is quoted above, he said, "I'm waiting to hear from my friend to see if he is interested in building a screen door. I will let you know either way." He never followed up with any additional information. This vendor began by being responsive but ended up with no follow through.

    Scott (the contractor) was very responsive, He came for a look after I called, evaluated the job and forwarded a quote within a week.  The job was well done, cleanup daily, caulking where needed, matched the house color extremely well. This is an over 3000 sq. feet home with three colors, all was done promptly and completed in a week. I have requested that they return next year and do the remaining two sides of the house.
    I will have no problem recommending their services to others.  All in all a real professional.

    El Gato Painting & Restoration Inc
    The entire process was very smooth from beginning to end.  They came in to evaluate the property and immediately provided a quote.  The office was extremely quick in scheduling the job.  Once the job was scheduled they showed up right on time.  The entire job, from cleaning, prepping to touching up details was done in a period of three days.  I highly recommend them.

    House Doctor Painting Inc
    The entire  job took only two days (one and a half really) the first day they primed and prepped the home and the second day arrived right on schedule (8 am) and were finished by 4:30 that afternoon.  Very professional, very competent, they did an excellent job.  They also removed the old, and somewhat corroded light fixtures and replaced them with new ones that I purchased, even spending extra time to install the new ones since their base was a bit larger than the old ones were.  I would highly recommend House Doctor Painting, from first to last they were outstanding in every way.

    Scott was quick to call me back, quick to provide an estimate, and quick to schedule the work. The work itself was well done and looks good! We were very pleased with his attention to detail. What we got was a paint job that was clearly superior to the one we'd gotten 5 years before. I'm sure it will hold up much better than the last one.

    You sometimes have people that are coming into your home that aren't as considerate with dirty feet.  These guys are neat, they do not listen to blasting music, they work in a contained way.  Their mess is limited and not all over the house.  They make perfect, perfect lines.  You can't even see a line.  They did hard wood french doors for us that are just the best.  They are very very detailed oriented.  Nothing was wrong with their work, it was perfect.  They worked with a color consultant too.  These guys will work with your consultant, whoever you might have, and adhere to what they have with the home owners approval.  When we had our house painted on the outside, our neighbors had them come over as well.  They know color.

    Paul Coutts Painting
    The finished product is outstanding.
    Paul Coutt's crew was highly considerate, very pleasant, and professional.
    The job was always kept very clean.
    They were flexible in work schedule when needed, and always kept in contact with us.
    We are owners and live in one of the units.
    Our tenants in other two units spoke very highly of the crew.
    The work was done in two phases on our request, and Paul worked with us.
    We were on vacation during the second phase and there was no need to contact us while we were gone
    The work was complete on our return.

    Eli and his crew did an outstanding job of painting my house. Eli listened to all of my painting concerns and he made sure that they were met. He estimated the job to be done in two to three days and it was. I highly recommend Eli Redman and his crew to my friends.

    I contacted several painters for bids; Paul's was very reasonable. He was punctual and returned calls promptly. He went the extra mile by working on my house's steeply pitched roof and redoing work due to a product issue. I highly recommend Paul and Enterprise Painting.
