I really liked Ahern Painting. He is very nice and seems to know what he is doing. His work looks excellent based off of what I saw on other houses. However, his price is so expensive. We just could not afford it. Way too expensive.

Service Provider Response

We are a legitimate painting business that pays taxes and insurance. Many do not so please take into consideration pricing will vary greatly. Please understand that labor- intensive projects drive the costs especially when lead containment is taken into consideration. I appreciate your candid response and will take as a valuable lesson when explaining to customers why choosing a reputable contractor will not be reflected in price, but value. We have been in business for 26 years and have one of the larger paint companies in the area. Correct pricing will be a reflection of the "price-quality-value" mix so competitive pricing from us is mandatory, not an option.

After searching long and hard for a good company to fix my kitchen ceiling, which I must say was a sight !!! I called John. He came over that afternoon and looked the job. He said he could handle it. I was amazed I never thought it was going to be able to be fixed. This involved not only the ceiling but all of the walls were too. I had done the demolition of the kitchen cabinets and removed Formica from the walls and a drop ceiling that was in extremely poor condition. I felt the job needed total new dry walls and a new ceiling. John stated to me that he has special equipment to handle a job like this. He started the next day and well let me tell you John was 100 percent correct! His worker Nate showed up early everyday for the next week and worked diligently and thoroughly . Nate always was neat and kept us informed at he was doing and the progress he was making. Everyday I was amazed! The quality of work and the effort to fix what I called a disaster into live able walls and a normal ceiling. After a week of hard work , the job was completed. I was totally amazed and grateful to John and Nate. It looks perfect as if nothing was wrong .my kitchen ceiling and walls. I would say he is the best and he runs a company that in today's world others ' can learn from ! If you need, painting spackling, help for your home call Ahern first! You will be amazed!!! The company that delivers what they promise and more!!!

Everything came out even better than expected and makes the whole foyer feel cleaner. I love walking through this space now! The crew arrived on time, everyday, at 8am. They were impeccably neat, precise, professional and a pleasure to have in our home. I would be happy to hire them again in the future and very confident to recommend them.

They were very thorough and professional in providing the estimate, but their prices were much too high.

Estimate - Mr. Ahern provided a detailed estimate which identified all work to be performed and estimated start date. Estimate was slightly higher than other painters but Mr. Ahern's estimate included higher quality materials and was more specific regarding preparation. I was contacted about a week prior to the estimated date and work began on the estimated start date. We handled most communications via email. Final cost was consistent with the estimate. Stain front door - Outstanding Strip and Paint Metal Railing - Excellent Repair and Paint Drywall - Outstanding Power wash and Prepare External Trim for Paint - Good. Most areas were prepared well. However, nail pops and open seams in some areas of the trim were not consistently repaired and filled. Some areas that I pointed out in final inspection were corrected but I noticed others after the job completed. Paint Exterior Trim, Garage Door, and Shutters - Excellent. Color match was excellent. Stain front porch deck - Fair. Painters did not seem to be familiar with how to apply the product that was recommended by Mr. Ahern. Manufacturer recommends one heavy coat. Mr. Ahern indicated that he would apply a heavy coat and second light coat while stain was still wet to ensure even coverage and color. Painters applied one light coat and left for the day. After discussion with Mr. Ahern, he decided to apply a second very light coat the next day to even out the coverage. Overall deck looks very good but color is a little uneven. Summary - Mr. Ahern runs an excellent company, is very knowledgeable, and makes every effort to do an outstanding job and satisfy his customers. All painters were friendly and very professional. They started and finished on time every day and finished the job on time. If not for the issue with the porch deck stain I would have rated them "A" across the board. I would not hesitate to recommend them to friend.

We didn't use them but they were very thorough in their evaluation and very expensive.

Description of Work
We got a quote for Ahern Painting to paint the entire exterior of the house.

Category house painters




I requested an estimate from Ahern Painting, because they were well reviewed, and I needed to repaint the entire exterior of my house. John was punctual, professional, and thorough in his review of the project. Unlike other painting companies, he took several days to determine his estimate--a sign of thoroughness. I would have gone with Ahern had I been able to afford his price, which was more than 3x the price of my lowest bid. In fairness, John described a project in which he planned to strip the paint down to the bare wood, so it would have been much more involved (3-4 weeks) than what the competition was offering (2-3 days).

I met with Mr. Ahern and he gave me an estimate to paint the entire interior of my four bedroom home. He was punctual and very professional. He spent a lot of time with me going over the job and talking about options. He stated that he employs top, talented people and that they receive training on new products and techniques several times a year. He further stated that he is properly insured and licensed and provided documentation to that effect. In addition, Mr.Ahern states he conducts background checks and drug testing on all of his employees. All of this, however, was reflected in the price. Another contractor provided an estimate for the job that was $5,000 less than Mr. Ahern’s. The other contractor, however, does not conduct background checks or drug screening on his employees. He also does not send his employees to training. I believe Mr. Ahern gave me an honest estimate, however, I chose to use the contractor with the lower price.

They were on time. The guy who came out was John Ahern who is one of the company owners. He was polite and professional. His estimate was through and well put together. Actually in retrospect, we wish we would have gone with them but we didn't end up using them for the job.

The project was perfect. The initial day and a half were devoted exclusively to covering all exposed areas of the house that needed protection from paint drips. This effort was so carefully done and so thorough that not a drop of misplaced paint was found anywhere after the completion. The Ahern painters were unfailingly polite, were quiet and professional in their comportment, and worked without interruption. When they were finished, the house was beautifully and flawlessly done and no part of my landscaping was disturbed. The entire job took about five days. Mr Ahern, the Company's owner, was on the property most days to oversee the work, but when he was not there, he left behind an effective foreman to answer my question and to alert me to the progress of the work. During the months after the completion of the work, Mr. Ahern has been back to inspect it several times, a practice he maintains with his customers to ensure that no belated problems have developed. My original instinct was to address my needs with vinyl siding, but the choice of painting using Ahern Painting, allowed me to keep the integrity of the original house in tact and the vinyl covered homes in my area clearly looked downgraded compared to my finish.

Description of Work
Ahern Painting painted all aluminum trim on the the exterior of my brick home including the siding and fascia, the soffits, the front frieze board, all door and window frames, the cellar door and frame, the shutters, the front door and the lintels and vents. Prior to the painting, Mr. Ahern met personally with my wife and myself to discuss the proposed project in detail. He provided the technical understanding we needed which assured us that the aluminum areas of my home could be painting in a way that would hold up for years (and today it looks as bright as it did when it was completed). In addition he provided color scheme suggestions while working closely with my wife to select the colors that we finally decided on. Once the tentative decision was made, he produced computer generated prospective photos of our house showing us what we could expect upon completion of the project. He provided a full and detailed written proposal, which, once accepted, he honored to the letter.
