Lookswell did a wonderful job. They were flexible in working around the schedule of the door delivery to our house, and put three coats of varnish on the doors. They have done a lot of other painting of the interior of our house, and I expect nothing less than superb work from them. I was not disappointed!

We needed to have mahogany doors sealed from the weather.

We first used Lookswell more than 30 years ago when we lived in Chicago before heading out to Barrington to raise a family. We used many different painting contractors over the years in our home there. Two years ago, as empty nesters, we bought a condo in Evanston, which had recently been painted top to bottom in a dark beige. Wondering if Lookswell was still around and whether they'd make the tre...

I received multiple bids for my home repair project and decided to go with Lookswell based on their professionalism, responsiveness, and the reviews I saw here on Angie's List. They did not disappoint. Fernando was very thorough and professional for the estimate, and he explained the work they'd do clearly and concisely. The job took two days. Luis arrived promptly each day to do the work. He inst...

I contacted them through the Angie's List portal and although the portal said they served our area of the city, they responded that we were outside their service area.

Lookswell is a responsive, friendly, professional company. I have hired them numerous times, and they continue to be my go-to for painting and wallpaper in the city. Mario is brilliant with removing stubborn paper and incredibly talented at application. We had two very difficult patterns that he was able to line up beautifully!

These guys are fantastic -- completely professional, completely together, and completely top-shelf. I was recommended them by a fussy person with very high standards, and they exceeded my expectations, and made fast work of a very dirty job. We had two whole floors painted, but they were very clean, hardly intrusive, and the work was done much faster than I would have expected. I'd be hard-pressed...

The service provided by Lookswell Painting was superior. Jim Scanlon contacted me the same day I requested an estimate. He came by within a day to evaluate the job and prepare an estimate, which I received the next day. The estimate included drywall tape repairs in five rooms and a closet, as well as painting five rooms completely and two rooms partially. Ceilings were painted n three rooms. When ...
