Different Strokes Painting
We received estimates from several local painting companies and Different Strokes was by far the most reasonable. Richard came out to meet us and we had an opportunity to talk about the project as opposed to simply receiving a bid in the mail. Richard and Clint painted the exterior of our two-story house and it turned out great. I recommend Different Strokes Painting Co. without hesitation. GB

Richard just completed painting the exterior of our 1.5 story house. He was very meticulous & exceeded many areas above and beyond what was stated in his contract. He was very profession & trustworthy. We would definitely have him do any future painting inside or out.

Richard knows his stuff! He's very good at what he does. My house looks awesome and I still smile every time I pull into the driveway. Professional, reasonably priced, detail oriented, and thorough. :-)

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.
