Alti's Painting & Remodeling
It was nice to find a contractor that that not only cared about doing a great job but recognized that my time is important. As I am always short on time between work and the family I needed to find a company that would give me a set time to be at my home and actually show up at that time. They gave me an exact time, not a four hour window, and that is the time they arrived. Then when they came to my house they were courteous, clean and they did an excellent job. After getting the exterior of my home painted my house now looks more modern, eye catching and beautiful. Thank you Eduard and the team at Alti's Painting for doing such an amazing job. I will definately call you again for my next project.Jill

American painters price was slightly higher than others but Brian's knowledge and professionalism and references sold me on the spot. Bruce cooled and his crew showed up on time every single day. they went above and beyond all of my expectations. protected all of my shrubs and bushes so much the neighbors were even impressed. they did not play loud music and we're very unobtrusive. we hardly even knew they were there. Bruce kept me informed daily on progress and at the end of the job walked around the entire house with me. I was impressed with a little extra things he did far too many for me to mention. I would highly recommend Bruce and his crew and American painters.

We really love the quality of the work the painters did in our large sunken living room. They did a super beautiful job. They even fixed all the bangs on the wall before painting. They were very careful with the trim molding around the floor, non of the paint dropped on carpet or hall way floor. Thanks to Robert and Tom for doing an excellent job. You both exceeded our expectation. We wants painters who know how to cut a good straight line and you did it. (:. We will use this company again to do a big project for exterior painting. We highly recommend this company to anyone.Rob and Betty BergerSt Petersburg, Florida

We priced a couple of different companies in regards to painting the exterior of our 2 story house. Not only did American painters beat their prices, they guaranteed to meet our deadline of being completed within a week. The crew that did the work were there every day, on time and worked hard. After completion the foreman, Bruce Gould walked around the entire house with us to make sure we were happy with the completed job. We were extremely happy with the results. The crew was very courteous and left our yard spotless. We would recommend Bruce and his crew to everyone.

Brian the owner, was very professional upon our first meeting to discuss what my painting needs were. He supplied me with a book that included all his licenses and insurance. He was quick to get a contract to me and to have the work begin. The painters were also very professional, prompt, and considerate. All work was done ahead of schedule and Bruce Gould, the foreman kept me abreast of the progress each day. I will be calling American Painters again after the holiday. I was very happy with the results and I would request to have Bruce and his same crew again.

I had work done by American Painters recently and was highly satisfied. We had a crew of 3 men, each was professional and courteous. Bruce Gould was the foreman in charge and always knew what was going on. Bruce sought me out each night before leaving to see if I had any questions or concerns and to give me an update. Each night my yard was fully cleaned of all debris. I would recommend Bruce and American Painters to everyone.

Kudos to American Painters for the great job they did. Everyone was so professional and helpful. All they guys working at my house were very clean and made sure not to leave things laying around each night when they left. Bruce Gould was very particular about all walkways and shrubbery being covered. I am very happy with the work they completed and would recommend Brian and Bruce to anyone.

Mark's Painting
We used Marks Painting to paint the entire interior of our new home and we were very impressed! He and his crew were polite and hard working. When they were finished it looked like a brand new house. I was especially impressed with our baby's nursery, I explained what I wanted and it turned out perfect! I have already recommended him to several friends who were equally impressed. Thanks Mark!

The work that Elite Painting performed was done in a very professional manner. They showed up on time and completed the service when they said that he would. I was extremely pleased with their work and would recommend them to anyone.
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.
