Ok. The crew was rather sloppy. They had to return to finish all the detail they missed, and clean up the sloppiness. They got paint on our brick patio, and got part of the roof shingles with the spray. I felt more like a project manager, than the customer as I had to show them a laundry list of what had to be touched up or still had to be painted. I was disappointed that the project manager didn'...

Initial estimate was timely, contract was handled electronically which was convenient. The paint job on the exterior is acceptable. Here are the issues I had- there was some communication breakdown between the individual who did the estimate & contract & the office staff so paint color choices for sample that were painted after the power wash were a last minute scramble and paint colors chosen did...

Work was incomplete and initial crew needed extensive hand-holding in order to correct obvious touch up mistakes. Office was unresponsive and it took repeated emails and phone calls to fix. I'm sorry I hired them.

The painters were inexperienced . They did not prep well, they painted over dirty areas they failed to clean. They skipped over areas and that did not get painted at all. It was the worst painting experience I ever had especially since I had spoken with the owner in detail prior to the job getting done ,about my expectations. avoid El Gato painting.

El Gato Painting surpassed our expectations on punctuality, quality, speed and price! Owner Ken Slosarik personally came out for an initial walk-through and then to check-in if we were satisfied. It is rare to find a paint company in Silicon Valley where you still have direct contact with the owner, which is a testament to Ken who is passionate about serving customers. Every detail was addressed o...

Everything was great from getting an initial estimate to the preparation of the house to the completion of the work. The painters were very organized, skilled and did a great job. I think you may pay a little more with El Gato, but you get a job that is done right, and the way you want it.
