Riviera Painting was highly recommended by the manager at our local Sherwin Williams store. Upon calling for an estimate, Tom came right out and broke down the cost of painting the exterior of our home and repairing/replacing some damaged wood siding. We couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Tom and his crew did an outstanding job and finished within the timeframe that was promised. Some time later, a bird damaged an area of the wood siding on the second story of our home. Not knowing what to do, we called Tom to ask his advice. Tom promptly returned the call and came out right away to repair and paint the area that had been damaged by the bird. Our home looks as good as new, again, thanks to Tom. We highly recommend Riviera Painting. Tom is a class act.

Tom and crew were neat, efficient and personable. They repaired walls where needed and replaced damaged trim. The repairs and paint job look great. I am very pleased with the work and professionalism of everyone involved. I would definitely use Riviera Painting 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.
