Armour's Home Improvements
I hired him to come out and stain my fence and deck. I choose a really dark stain to counter a dark staining residue that my lawn guy left on the lower half of my fence after spraying for bugs. Although I did not like the color of the stain that I choose, Parris was very friendly and always on time both days that he was here to stain. I wouldn't say that he is all that great with the details because he didn't go up under the cross boards so you can bend down and see a bit of the fence unstained. Also, he ran out of stain on the deck so only did half the deck although I still paid for the full deck price; I ended up finishing it myself (not his fault though..I said I would finish cause I had to go out and get more stain). The only negative that I would say would be that he did not get between the cracks of the deck to stain and his side looks bad compared to the side that I finished, so I went back and redid his side. Who is to say though that he would not have filled in the cracks, had he had more stain to finish with. He is a great guy, very friendly and easy to talk to. He gave us a military discount which was nice of him. I gave him four stars cause I really can't count the deck since I didn't have enough stain, and he said he would have gone back to the fence to touch up had I had more stain. So all in all, he would have probably gotten five stars had I had more stain (my fault). ** Great hire if you don't want to be in the heat yourself and do the staining or spend weeks doing it. ** If I could do it over again, I would still hire him!!

Mr. Parris did a great interior painting job of my whole house, and his price quote was very reasonable. Due to various reasons it took a bit longer than we projected, but all in all, his meticulous attention to detail, trustworthyness, punctuality and dedication to his work is why I would recommend him to my friends and family. Mr. Parris was never late, did what he said he would, and was always very professional. I would hire him again.

Armours Home Improvements did a great job! After receiving an estimate from Parris (the owner), I hired them to paint my home interior walls, patch holes & take down wallpaper. He and his team were personable, respectful and did an awesome job. They answered all of my questions and after completion, had me look over the work to make sure it was to my satisfaction. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of home improvements.

I hired this company to repaint my entire master bathroom and it turned out perfect, just as I had envisioned. He is easy to work with, very professional, and the job was completed in a very timely manner, (less than 3 hours!). I will be using him in the future projects for our home, and already have plans for crown moulding in the entire downstairs. If you would like to see photos of my bathroom please email me.

He did a good job. The work that he did to patch rotted porch areas is still holding a year later. His paint job was solid. We ran into a stretch of bad weather where storms kept rolling through and we had to keep re-scheduling the painting, but it finally got done. I did not have the same experience as the guy who gave him one star. I found him polite and he got the job done.

Initially I hired Parris to retile my fireplace but was then inspired to paint practically my whole house. He was proficient with the task at hand. I trust him and his ability to get the job done right the first time. I would hire him always as my go to guy for home repairs.

I hired Parris to pressure wash and stain the fence and deck. He did a very good job pressure washing and the stain looks great. He was very nice and trustworthy and finished in only three days of working out in the 105 degree heat. I would definitely recommend him.

Ark's Painting
I have nothing but praise for Ark's Painting. His people repaired all rotted wood, and painted a very large house for a good price. All work was done professionally and quickly. I highly recommend them and will use them again myself.

I hired Mr. Parris to make the holes on the wall and hang some pictures and curtains, I was pregnant and my husband was working hard, so I had to hire him and he did a great job. I am very pleased with his job. I would hire him again!
Tips & Advices
For a long-lasting paint job, a clean wall is crucial. Ask how they plan to clean your walls, if at all, before getting started. A high-quality company will thoroughly prepare a wall so that the paint will lay smoothly and last a long time.
Yes. A well-established company will have more experience and likely more references for you to reach out to than a new company that's just getting off the ground. Be sure to ask for references so you can speak to former customers about their experience working with the painter. When speaking to these people, ask about:
  • Whether they had issues with the crew
  • If the painters were messy or neat
  • How the paint has held up since the project was completed
The quality of the paint will affect how good the walls look when the project is completed. If your contractor says they plan on using a paint you don't like, feel free to request an alternative.
If the contractor makes a point to train new hires on safety techniques as well as quality standards on the job, you're probably in good hands.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of cases where a painter has stolen items from a home or caused damage to the house or injury to the homeowner. Subcontractors may not be as skilled as employees, and the contractor you're hiring may not have much experience working with them, making them more of a risk. Additionally, ask if the painters are employees or subcontractors, and what the screening or hiring process is like.
