William L. Myles & Sons Painting
This is the only painting company you will ever need to call! Don't waste your time on other painting contractors. We contracted with Wm L Myles to paint the eaves/trim of our home for our daughter's upcoming wedding. Lived there 15 years without painting exterior so it really needed it. Bill (owner) came out personally for the estimate and provided us with company history, insurance information, past testimonies (who does that??). The quality and care that they showed while working at our home was nothing short of spectacular. Every detail was carefully planned by the crew - totally professional in every way! Foreman Hans and his crew taped EVERYTHING with plastic (the ground too) and then caulked everything where needed. My patio posts and trim look better than the day it was built. They even painted our front and rear doors (front of each) so that it would all blend. They also provided us with a (5) year warranty! Our home couldn't be more beautiful - I cried when I pulled up after work on their final day (seriously - it's gorgeous). Make no mistake – you might find someone a little cheaper, but you won’t get the same QUALITY.C NelsonQuartz Hill, CA5/2015

They did a very good job, they were prompt, and they were courteous.
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.
