Recent House Painting Reviews in Washington

  • AROCON Roofing & Construction
    Everything about the project was an excellent experience. Great work all around, timely work and response, all for fair pricing. All interaction with the company and any workers was a painless experience. If you are getting a quote for any roofing, portico work or anything else that Arocon does, I would get a quote from them

  • R M Banning Roofing
    Great! Work was done efficiently, professionally, on time, at a fair price. I highly recommend R.M. Banning Co.

  • JW Home Improvement
    “I strongly recommend JW Home Improvement for all home repair and renovation needs. Over the past few weeks we have had various projects completed, including, exhaust fan installation, stairwell repair, dry wall repair, exterior dormer and trim replacement and gutter/downspout painting. All of the technicians were friendly, prompt, knowledgeable, respectful, highly skilled and operated efficiently to finish ahead of scheduled time. Pedro, Kevin and Antonio in particular were exceptional in going above and beyond to produce truly beautiful work. The craftsmanship and precision displayed by these technicians was extraordinary and they were an absolute pleasure to have in my home.

  • JW Home Improvement
    They did great work painting our extensive exterior wood trim, repairing a section of our fascia, and installing an outdoor light. The technicians and the JW main office were both a pleasure to work with. The great thing about these guys is that if they discover a problem, they can almost always fix it themselves, since they have all the relevant skills. We have hired them often in the past and will not hesitate to do so again
    Benjamin C.
  • JW Home Improvement
    The JWHI technicians did a great job with my list of repairs. They were professional and communicated well. Would absolutely hire again.
    Kristina J.
  • Potts Brothers LLC
    Very well! Both projects were completed very well and with great attention to detail. While working on the interior, Potts painters discovered a leak from the floor above, enabling us to get a plumbing repair done before the leak caused damage. The painters cut a neat hole in the ceiling and later repaired it expertly
    Nina S.
  • JW Home Improvement
    The owner came to give us an estimate and spent a lot of time learning about our needs. The job was originally schedule the week prior but they changed the project to the following week which was an inconvenience but otherwise they did an excellent job. They were prompt and worked steadily throughout the 3 days and always sought our input on any decisions that needed to be made. They were polite. The company picked up debris from the job promptly the next day. Cesar Miranda is a skilled craftsman who went the extra mile
    Denise G.
  • JW Home Improvement
    We recently hired JW Home Improvement to resurface our deck, repair and paint all the trim on the exterior of the house, and make other much-needed repairs and improvements. We very much appreciated Estimator Josh, Field Supervisor Clinton, and Office Manager Michelle for their responsiveness and friendliness. The team they sent to us, Alberto and Javier, were excellent! Highly skilled in so many areas of construction and painting and problem solving, they were efficient, careful, hard working, and thorough. Good natured, they took the time to explain to us what they were doing whenever we had questions. We highly recommend them and plan to hire them again
    Linda G.
  • Manor Works Painting
    Fast, hard working, and high quality work. Great communication, found additional areas that needed repair and worked with me to make sure those were covered. Very happy, will definitely hire again for future work.
    Chris H.
  • All American Painting Plus Inc
    It went great! From the estimate to job completion this is a highly professional company? Darwin and his team couldn’t have been nicer! They were prompt and worked hard all day! Between John and Darwin, they kept an eagle eye on the job’s progress and kept me informed. I highly recommend them and will hire them again

Things to consider when researching an exterior house painting business

Start by doing some research. Obtaining a list of exterior painters in your area is a smart starting point. Once that’s done, ensure you:

  • Read reviews and ratings. A single unhappy client in a pool of happy customers isn’t cause for alarm, but a lot of bad reviews can be reason enough to kick a painting service off your list.
  • Arrange some consults. Don’t get quotes from painting companies who haven’t seen your home firsthand. The painter should view the home from all angles to determine the level of the project.
  • Inquire about insurance. You might not need a credentialed painter. Peruse the requirements in your state to find out. Nonetheless, you should only consider candidates with insurance. That protects the contractor’s interests and yours too.

Does completing the job yourself help you save cash?

Cutting down on costs by completing a home painting project yourself is absolutely possible, particularly if you have a single story and you don’t need unique tools to do the work. The median price of regular tools and paint for an exterior house painting job is about $1,000.

But you must calculate for other factors that might change the cost. When the job requires scaffolding to get to certain places, or specialty tools are necessary to finish the job, that may drive up your investment. You might also have to use vacation time at work to finish the work when the conditions are right, and that might cut down on your income. Carefully consider all factors to decide whether you really save money by going the DIY route. If you’ve never painted the exterior of a home, experienced contractors can also better deliver results.

Before suiting up in painting gear and arming yourself with a brush, ask for quotes from exterior painting services in Washington.
