blue harbor painting
We got quotes from several painters, but felt the most comfortable with Todd. He showed up on time to look at the house, provided a fair price to paint the inside and outside of the house and detailed out the plan to complete the work. With a move involved and many other items to get done timing was just as important as the quality of the work. He nailed it!We love the colors we picked and we love the workmanship. It is our pleasure to recommend Todd and Blue Harbor to anyone who needs their home painted. Thanks Todd!

Fresh Start Pntg & Refinishing
I cannot say enough about Bill and the work he does! He hung wallpaper for us, as well as completely transformed an entertainment center that we had enlarged for our bonus room. The other company did a good job with building the addition to match the existing cabinet, but their staining work was horrible. Bill came in and did such a great job, and the new addition now looks original to the existing cabinets. He is also so very friendly and professional. You will not be disappointed if you hire him!

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.
