I chose Putnam painting because I had seen some other houses painted by Putnam, and those places looked really nice. Mr. Putnam was very prompt with the painting and roofing estimate. He was disappointed that I chose his company to only paint the house, instead of new roof and painting, and he bargained a little louder, but I had already decided on another company to replace the roof. I was pleased with the exterior paint on my home. Each change of color was $150.00 more, but he did tell me that up front. I chose white paint with grey trim. Mr. Putnam was helpful and patient while I chose colors. My next door neighbor also got an exterior painting estimate from Putnam, but he (my neighbor), felt the estimate was too high. My neighbor did want at least three colors for exterior and trims. The house looks very clean and sharp and I am pleased with the work. The old paint was quite faded. It took the crew about one day and a few hours the next day to do the painting. They used a paint sprayer for most of the job and brushes for the trim.
