Rufino Painting did an excellent job on our house, painting the exterior wooden trim, including windows and doors, sealing our porch ceilings and touching up our Hardie board siding. They previously painted the interior of our house. They arrive early and work hard all day, doing an excellent, meticulous job quickly. In addition to their fantastic work, Raul and his team are honest and truly enjoyable to be around. I give them my highest recommendation!

Perfecto! It took Raul less than an hour to gather all the information needed to put an estimate together. He is thorough and doesn't miss a trick. He noticed tiny cracks and dinged trim that had long ago become just what I thought our house looked like. It took his team maybe a week to not only change the look of our house, but restore every surface to "factory new" condition. Truly an outstanding job. As one of our nieces put it, now our "house could be the lobby of a fancy boutique hotel." Will definitely be using Rufino for the second floor! Soon as we decide on the colors...

Raul and his team are true professionals and did an amazing job. He agreed to use Behr Marquee (not his preferred brand, it is apparently a bit trickier to work with) because we like the finish and durability. The work is immaculate, they were very careful and respectful of our home, they showed up on time each day, and finished the job as scheduled. His price was very reasonable (amount shown does not include ~$500 in supply costs). To top it off, Raul is kind and personable. I will hire them again in an instant and recommend them to everyone.

Our request for an estimate for stripping one of our windows was responded to immediately with a willingness to squeeze our small project into Rufino’s busy schedule. The job was completed as promised in just two days. I appreciated their attention to detail with special care given to finding choices for the stain color and window locks that suited us and handling unforeseen problems that were not part of their services. Our life was made easier by their prompt arrival each morning and leaving the unit exactly as it was before the project began.

I submitted a request for a painting quote on a Saturday morning and Raul responded within 10 minutes. That day he came over to give me a price quote, and the crew was there at 6:30am Monday to begin work. It took 2 days to finish painting my living room, dining room, and kitchen and they did a fantastic job! These guys have skills...Lines are super straight, trim is perfect, and they covered up holes so well I can't even remember where they were. :-) I wish I had more painting to be done in my house so I could hire them again!

Rufino Painting provided excellent service! They were on time and highly efficient over the 3.5 days for the paint job. They were also early in finishing, as the original quote was for a 4 day paint job. They did excellent quality work, use high quality paint, and did some minor wall repairs. They helped advise on paint color selection and placement as well. And their pricing was reasonable for the high quality of work. I would use them again, and highly recommend them for any paint job, large or small.

Quality of work is excellent; these guys are experienced and really know what they're doing. Originally was estimated to be a 2 day job for 2 bedrooms and some other miscellaneous areas. But they were able to paint both bedrooms including trim in 1 day, which helped to minimize disruption to our sleeping arrangements. They returned the next day to complete the other areas. Price was competitive with other vendors.

The whole process was very smooth. Raul responded to my initial call quickly, and we got a bid from him promptly (we got 3 separate bids for the work). We picked Rufino because Raul’s estimate was thorough, and his bid was competitive (he’s also super friendly). Raul, Jorge and Cesar were on the job every day promptly at 7 am and finished in the quoted time. Prep work was extensive, and they took great care with our belongings. Everything was left as they found it, and they were more friendly and patient with our two cats than our two cats deserved. Most importantly, the result is excellent. Colors are rich, the ceiling looks better than I ever thought possible. Trim looks great. I absolutely would use Raul and his team again.

We had Rufino Painting repaint our entire 3 bed 2 bath condo (all walls, trim, ceilings, closets, and doors). It was a big job, and Rufino painting gave us an accurate quote that was lower than most of the other companies we considered. The quote included all paint (high quality Benjamin Moore) and materials. These were even discounted over what I was quoted at the store. Raul (the owner) was incredibly quick and easy to communicate with. I had some narrow time windows that I needed the job to be done during, and Raul was able to meet them. Raul and his team were very punctual on every day of the 5 day job. Our condo had restrictions on when work could be done, and he and his team accommodated those. They worked long hours to get the job done in one week since the condo association did not allow work during the weekend. Raul helped me make a few paint choices (about finish and some basic color choices) and I found that very helpful. The quality of work that Raul and his team did was amazing. I loved having the owner out working the job with a team that he trusts. They sanded down all the walls before starting and did an incredible job speckling and patching some drywall holes. The previous paint job we had from another company was awful, and Raul and his team painstakingly undid all their mistakes. In particular, there was one wall-wall-ceiling ceiling corner that the other company had spackled in a ridiculous rounded way, sort of like a quarter of a dome. Without me asking about it (I had assumed it was unfixable), Raul’s team chipped that mess out and reformed a nice looking corner. All the edging around the windows, baseboards, and ceiling that they did was impeccable. We will use Rufino painting for all our future jobs and regularly recommend them to anyone we know in the area getting their house painted.

Raul and family were top notch. I've never worked with a more professional contractor and I could not be more happy about the results. They showed up on time, communicated well and showed great follow thru. I was most impressed with how much effort they put towards preparation for painting. No shortcuts were taken. I wish they did other types of work besides painting because they were such a pleasure to work with.

Our experience with Raul and his team was great. Raul called me within 24 hours of my request and offered to visit and provide an estimate the next morning. We were trying to get the interior of our condo (walls, trim, doors, ceilings) painted before we moved in, and we were on a tight schedule to get it done. Raul offered to adjust his team's schedule to meet our timeframe, and they started working for us within a few days of the estimate. The crew was very professional - showing up early each day, working efficiently, and completing the job ahead of schedule. Our condo had a number of holes in the walls left by the previous owner that the crew patched as part of their prep-work and the walls look like new after prep and painting. Based on all of the above, I would definitely recommend Rufino Painting to friends and neighbors.

Our experience with Rufino was excellent from start to finish -- they came by the same day I contacted them and provided a quote along with clear explanation of the work to be done. As this was a small interior job, they worked it in quickly, utilizing a rain day on an exterior job. The crew showed up early, did all work efficiently and professionally, and cleaned up well afterward. The walls in the kitchen look like new. Raul was a pleasure to do with business with (and was very helpful and patient with color-matching), and I would recommend Rufino Painting to friends and neighbors. The price seemed fair based on my own experience with this sort of work and speaking with other vendors.

We had a great experience with Rufino Painting. Raul was prompt and helpful from the very beginning. He was able to help with colour selection and offer some advice about technique as well. The crew was on time everyday and they even finished the project early. The quality of the work is fantastic, the edging was done perfectly and the plaster patching they did is seamless. The crew was thoughtful (they always removed their shoes to walk through the house), clean and efficient. They were able to accomplish in four days what I hadn't been able to in three years. I am thrilled with the job that they did and our house looks great!

Raul was wonderful! I called asking if he would be able to come in the next few weeks to give me an estimate and he called back that day and came the next to give us an estimate. He had the entire job done within 2 weeks! All the rooms were done well (even repaired any holes in the wall in the closets and replaced all the shelving) and so neatly! I mentioned that we also needed to have the floors redone and he said he knew someone (his brother-in-law). He said he would coordinate the 2 projects so that dust would not get into the new paint. Frederico Sandoval did a superb job on our floors, even fixed the doorway from the hall into the bathroom so that it was flush!

Mr Rufino was able to begin work in our home within 2 weeks of the estimate. He and his crew arrived early every day and began work right away. We were in awe of the amount of preparation that was done prior to the start of painting. They were very organized given the limited amount of space available to move larger pieces of furniture around. All areas not being painted were completely covered. Furniture was also completely covered and moved with care. The painters proved to be extremely accomodating and were respectful of working in our home. I was undecided about colors to use and Mr Rufino listened to my expectations from the new colors i.e. warmth or just a whisper of color in one room, and helped in clarifying my decisions. The painters did touch-up work on the last day making sure all work completed as requested. The painting experience with Mr Rufino and Company was always very professional. We would definitely use Rufino Painting again and will recommend to others.

Description of Work
We requested an estimate from Rufino Painting to have our home's main floor painted, with the exception of the kitchen that was remodeled in 2014. Our home was built in 1939 and was last painted about 20 yrs ago so there were many cracks and imperfections needing work. We also requested installation of a chair rail in our dining room and a new baseboard in our hallway.

It went very well. Mr. Rufino is friendly, thorough and committed to doing a good job. If you have any questions in your mind about how you want your job done he is very happy to help you think it through. The only reason I gave the "B" on price is that his and his crew's competency comes at a price. They are not the cheapest painters around. That said, we were happy to pay it and not at all sorry to have done so.

The interior of our house hadn’t been painted for 22 years and in the last 50 years the hallway and stairwell to the second floor received only minimal attention. Raul Ruffino suggested removing the wallpaper from the hall/stairwell and the carpet from the stairs. He then guided us through paint selection and recommended someone to refinish the stairs. Raul and his family were efficient, courteous, and professional. Their part of the work was finished in 7 long days. They coordinated their work with the wood floor contractor. All large furniture was moved and covered. Every effort was made to minimize dust and spatter. They know paints and how to use them We were more than satisfied with the final result. We never imagined our house could be like one of those makeovers on TV.

Raul and his family were fabulous! They showed up on the day they said they would at 8:00 and worked till after 5:00 most days. They were on time every day and worked hard to complete the job quickly and at a very high standard. When the FHA appraiser demanded additional work they did not try to take advantage of the fact that I had to get the work done. They took on the additional work, completed it quickly and at a very fair price. I had obtained three bids and they were not the cheapest but by far the most reasonable for the outstanding work they did. Also, when they left, everything was spotless, the only way I knew they had been there was the outstanding work they had done.

Very professional from start to finish. When I search the list, I am sometimes skeptical of providers who receive all As...I mean you can't always please everyone, right? However, this provider deserves the good marks. I had called several "A" providers before going with Rufino and some didn't bother to call back or were late for estimate appointments. An "A" doesn't always mean they are professional, in my experience. They were not the cheapest, but reasonable/fair. They were punctual and professional. I had an unexpected plumbing problem arise and had to call a plumber in. This delayed the project, but they waited patiently and finished the job that day as originally planned ! :)
