Olympic Painting
I called Olympic Painting after I had a disappointing stucco job on my 1920's duplex and needed someone to come to the rescue. Mr. Park came out immediately and gave me the reassurance I needed, assurances that his crew could smooth over the all the poor workmanship and rough edges, as well as doing the paint job. Mr. Park and his crew were a joy to work with, so professional and so considerate of myself and my tenants. What had taken months to screw up was reversed in a matter of days. Mr Park was on top of all the various aspects of the job and my duplex started to shine!!! Great prep work and beautiful paint job, immaculate clean up!!!. He also hired a talented carpenter to build a very attractive outside cabinet. I will definitely use this "dream team" again and would recommend them to anyone and everyone who wants professional expertise, fast work, excellent prices and personable, honest customer service.
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.
