Ben Homolka Paint & Remodeling
I hired Ben Homolka to repaint my kitchen cabinets. He did a pretty eh job. Lack of attention to detail added up to a lot of little imperfections. Over spray, drips, dings, divits and scratches in the paint job in my brand new doors. Not an unmitigated disaster but also not the smooth clean finish I was expecting from a professional. He's very hyper-sensitive to criticism. My "relationship" just ended with him hanging up me mid-sentence when I call him out. Now I have to decide if I can live with a far from perfect finish or sand them down and repaint. I do not recommend his services.

Ben Homolka Paint & Remodeling
Lots of little mistakes that add to up one big headache for me. Paint flecks everywhere, paint drips on the carpet, overspray on EVERY WINDOW in my entire house that had to be scraped off. Missing can light fixtures that he took off to paint the ceiling. It's been a while and I'm still finding things to fix. Basically he didn't do ANY of the finishing up detail work. I do not recommend him.

Precision Painting Co
First class company. Could not ask for a more professional and timely company to do work on my property. Terry and his crew were genuinely interested in our satisfaction throughout the process of them building and remodeling our home. I highly recommend them to anyone interested in getting any type of work done.
Midsouth Remodeling And repairs
I had midsouth remodeling come out and replace a lot of Sheetrock in my home due to water damage and paint the interior of the entire house and they did an amazing job. We love it. We will have them back in a couple months to do the exterior. GREAT JOB
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.
