House Painting reviews in Waukesha

    Rainbow Painting Inc
    Our experience with Rainbow Painting Inc of New Berlin WI was OUTSTANDING and surpassed expectations!!! The owners and painters were courteous, honest, reliable and did a beautiful job on our home!! This included all exterior painting and replacing some rotted cedar siding. The price was reasonable and in line with the four other quotes we received. From start to finish they completed the job in a week and this was a two story, 2700 sq foot home!! In addition, they also painted and cleaned all exterior light fixtures, washed windows and power washed outdoor patio furniture and patio. They were also careful with all landscaping and gardens. I would "highly recommend" them and plan on using them again for future projects. Lovely people!

    Rainbow Painting Inc
    I am very satisfied with the work that Rainbow Painting did for me. My home looks brand new and is beautiful looking once again! Nick came over originally to check out the job. He was very friendly and put me at ease with the work to be done. The crew came very promptly in the morning and immediately went to work. They covered all the windows, plants, shrubs, railings, and stoops and stairs for protection.They even covered the roof of the garage just to make sure no spray would land on it! The crew was very professional and polite..always trying to please!! Nick always answered my concerns with a very positive attitude and went the extra mile to do a great job!! The crew completely cleaned up after the painting was done. They pay attention to details as they go along! I intend to rehire in the winter for an indoor job with full confidence of another great job! This company is very reliable and works very hard to do excellent work! I feel I choose the right company to do this job and would recommend them highly!

    1451 Dale Painting
    I highly recommend 1451 Dale Painting. I obtained bids from 3 other painting companies during the process and they ended up with the best bid. Martin and his employees were on time every day and even worked around our schedule to get our house finished. They used quality paint, 2 coats, and covered up everything so there were no paint spills etc. Every room turned out great and when we have guests over to our new house, they always compliment the painting job that was done in each room.

    Empire Painting
    The project went very well. The original date was pushed because of unusually heavy rain season. When the window opened up, they were out promptly to get the job done. They took their time in preparing the surface, where others wanted to just power wash the house and paint, they did any necessary scraping and applied caulk where needed. They did not rush through the work, but took their time and made sure we were happy with the results. Dan did a great job in reviewing what they would cover, Jeff did a great job in finishing off the front door, taking the time to do it right. They replaced 2 engineered wood boards beneath windows Any spots we found after they were done we quickly and happily taken care of by Jeff. I am glad I picked Empire to perform our services and will do so again when the need arises.

    Rhino Shield Wisconsin
    The salesman that I worked with was Randall (Randy) C. and the project leader was David V. I have a 2 story house with cedar siding and hired Rhino Shield to paint all exterior siding. All trim was one color, all siding another color. The first paint crew seemed to know what they were doing and everything was going well until the first time the crew leader (Raul) told me they were done and asked that I walk around the house to verify that the work was satisfactory. This is when things started to go downhill. At first glance, everything seemed fine. As I took my time to look things over, I started to see just how poorly the job was done. There were numerous areas where the trim color was over sprayed onto the main body color. There were numerous areas that were never properly prepped/scraped. And there were just as many areas that were never even painted. The worst areas were anyplace that a person would have to bend over or get on their knees or even lay down to do the work. I pointed out a lot of the mistakes to Raul and he and his crew started fixing them. Or so I thought. This went on two more times before Raul and his crew were kicked off the job and supposedly fired from the company. During this entire time, the paint crew managed to break a basement window, crush a roof vent, trample plants, damage my decorative block patio, discolored areas of my driveway with chemicals used to clean up paint, got paint on my new garage doors & weather stripping, and damaged my deck by not protecting it from over spray or their ladders. During this time, I had been in constant contact with David V. I had sent him pictures as well as showed him everything in person. David assured me that Rhino Shield would cover the cost to repair everything as well as get a second crew out there to fix the poor work of the first crew. A couple weeks later another one man "crew" (Daniel) showed up. This worker redid almost everything that the first crew had done. It became very evident that the first crew had not done the proper amount of prep work that was required on my house. Once again, at first everything was going well. When Daniel told me he was done, I started to do a walk around to look at the finished product. It was the same issue as with the first crew. There were areas that were never prepped or scraped, and there were areas that were never painted. You could see areas of bare wood that were never primed. There were areas where the original stain was flaking off. This became extremely frustrating as I had gone around the entire house, both stories, and marked all the problem areas with painters tape. All the crews had to do, was fix the areas that were marked out. In most cases, it looked like they just took the tape off and just spread a little paint on. In all, I was told on six different occasions that the job was complete, three times by both crews. It wasn't until the sixth time that it seemed like everything was finally done the way I was told it would be done at the beginning of this project. All this time, David V kept assuring me that all the damage that was done to my property would be taken care of. He offered me a 10% discount off the contract price as a way to apologize for all the issues, and also stated in writing that I would be reimbursed for all items damaged. I had submitted emails, pictures, texts, receipts of the items I had repaired right away, and quotes for the items that still needed to be fixed. At the end of the job, it was requested that I sign a letter stating that I agree that the work had been completed. I agreed to sign the letter, but only if it was noted that I would be reimbursed for all damaged items. David put this in writing, listed everything out, then he and I both signed and initialed the letter. Shortly after this, I received the final quote which was to repair my deck and hand railing. My deck is built with Azek deck material which is a PVC decking material. All the areas that were not protected from over spray, and the areas that were scratched up from workers dragging their ladders across the deck, needed to be replaced. As the deck is made with a PVC material, the over spray can not be scraped off without causing further damage and the scratches cannot be buffed out. After David & Rhino Shield received the quotes, they completely changed their tune and refused to pay for any of the repairs. Instead they felt that it would be fair to offer me an additional 10% discount off my contract price for a total of 20% off. This may sound like a good deal on paper, but the cost to repair my deck and railing, is more than the cost of the entire paint job. Even though I have signed documents from them stating they will reimburse me the cost of the repairs, they are refusing to do anything. I should also note that their contract states that the will "Mask and shield all windows, doors, roofs, lawn, shrubs, decking, and patios to prevent over-spraying". So not only did they not follow their own contract, but they refuse to honor their signed document stating the reimbursement. When I brought this up in an email to David V, he replied that he would no longer be replying to emails and threatened to put a lien on my house if I did not pay. He stated that I signed the completion documents and that I was required to pay immediately. I reminded him that he also signed the completion document and that it was noted on the document that Rhino Shield would reimburse me for all the damage done to my property. He never responded to that, just reminded me that payment was due, or a lien would be put on my home. I've included some pictures of what I was told was a finished product and a couple showing the over spray on my deck. Do yourself a favor, before looking into this company, do an internet search for Rhino Shield complaints.

    Rainbow Painting Inc
    From the initial estimate to the completion, Rainbow Painting exceeded my expectations. Nick and his wife along with their son George and the entire crew offered outstanding service and quality work. Not only did they beautifully re-stain the entire house, they also refurbished all the exterior light fixtures and cleaned all the windows! It's great to deal with people who truly take pride in their work! I would definitely hire them again.

    The Painting Co
    The job started and ended very well. Adam kept his estimate appointment on time in person even though it was during a drenching downpour. The estimate spelled out the complete work and was considerably lower that past contracts and other estimates. Adam and his crew started the job within the estimated time frame. I appreciate the complete job the crew did to prep the wood before staining. I was given enough time to thoroughly inspect the work and point out areas that required touch up which Adam did himself. My chimney needed new siding and Adam recommended a good carpenter who also did a quality job at a good price. I would recommend TCP and hire them again.

    Empire Painting
    I am very happy that I found Empire Painting for my home. The painters are very professional, friendly, detailed and do an excellent job. I appreciate their attention to detail and the great job that they do. They painted the trim on my rather large house with many high areas and a good amount of area to cover. I was very happy with the results. One suggestion that I have is if you use the color expert they send from their paint supplier, make sure you record the color you pick. Don't rely on that person to inform the painters as they say they will. I chose my color on a sunny day in July (my trim was painted in October). The color expert told me that she would inform the painters and that was the process they used. I assumed that would happen. When the crew came to paint my house in October, they were not informed of the color. One of the painters and I chose the color quickly on the day they needed to go. I specifically did not want any yellow in the color and told the painter that. I approved the color on an overcast day. Once the job was done and I see my house in the sunlight, it is very yellow. I don't like the color but I don't fault the painters since I did approve it. I just suggest that the homeowner keep the name of the paint they choose in case the paint expert does not communicate with the painters. About 6 months later, I hired Empire to paint a bathroom and part of my family room. They did an excellent job and were very responsive to my requests. They do excellent work and are very thorough. I appreciate their attention to detail. I intend to hire them again. I have recommended them to friends. Great company!
