I was extremely satisfied with the level of professionalism and quality of workmanship from Bill Cellitti painting. They painted every room in my 1928 home. They took great care in making sure my hardwood floors and built in shelving were covered. The previous homeowner had painted the outside perimeter of the wood beams in the living room. Bill had suggested that he could match the stain from the beams and paint the outside perimeter to match. I was thoroughly impressed that he went above my expectations and made the home look so beautiful. He also matched the paint on the crown molding in my kitchen to match the cabinets. He was very patient with me as we had several colors throughout the house to choose. He picked most of the colors and the colors complimented the age and style of the home. I highly recommend him. I have already called him back to do the outside in the Spring. Bill and his workers are very professional to work with.

I went in a couple weeks ago just to see what their packages were for bridal parties and had such great service! I live in Alaska currently and I am having my wedding back home in IL in May. This was my last time I will be back in Rockford before the wedding. I went in a day before I left and they hurried up and made the time for me to get an extensions consultation, cut, and full highlight/lowlight. I couldn't believe how helpful they were being. I left with all my appointments booked for May for my bridal party, moms, and me, a great haircut, color, and style and some products. I was also with my soon to be mother-in-law and they helped give her some tips and products specifically for her hair. She later went back and bought it. I will never go to any other salon back in Rockford except this one!

In response to the review below. Our salon runs by appointment only, therefore we run and work off our appointment book, if someone is late that causes us to be late for the next appointment and so on. If a client is more than 15 minutes late we have the right to reschedule them in order to give adequate time for the service. Offering to not shampoo or style in order to still receive a service is always offered to the client if time allows to do so if they desire. We strive to please all of our clients and deeply apologize for the mishap.

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.
