I cannot speak highly enough of the excellent work, the good communication, the professionalism and the work ethic of John Armstrong and all of his employees. This is the second time we used them, the last 7 years ago. They assess the needs for painting, don't just go after the whole thing if it doesn't need it, their work is thorough and beautiful!

We were extremely happy with Magic Painting. They removed the popcorn ceilings in all rooms (except closets) and painted all interior walls. This was a huge job over four weeks, and they were very accommodating to our schedule. They were able to do our bedrooms while we were on vacation. As they did the rest of the house they kept the work areas sealed off, minimizing dust and disruption. The staf...

Magic was referred to us by a family member and I would wholeheartedly recommend them myself. The entire process - from initial walkthrough to proposal to painting to sign-off - was thorough and seamless. John the owner is incredibly considerate (especially of the quirks of an old house) and kindly helped us tailor our job to fit our budget. Communication was excellent and the work was done beauti...

I would recommend Magic Painting in a heartbeat. Their customer service is outstanding. I have never worked with a more client-friendly and professional contractor in my 30+ years of home ownership. From understanding the required work, the detailed itemization of the job description, the preview of who would be on the work crew, the care taken to get the job done right and finally the friendly an...

They did a great job - really happy with the work. The crew was extremely professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond to ensure I was happy with the results. We had a significant amount of mold/mildew build-up in our windows, requiring the sills to be sanded down, stained to match and then sealed.

As always (we have used Magic Painting a total of four times), Magic Painting did a superb job painting the walls and trim of our living room, dining room and entryway. The quality of Magic Painting's work was excellent. In fact, despite a pretty rigorous final inspection by me, there were zero punch list items at the end of the project. The owner, John Armstrong, is incredibly responsive and prof...

I highly recommend. The Magic Painting Company is quality is all regards. John provided an initial bid with the end invoice being slightly under the quote. John worked around my schedule so I could be around if my consult was needed. The crew was great -- fast, efficient, meticulous, friendly. Communication was excellent from beginning to end. John asked for my opinion on stain, and also provided ...
