What Do You Want From Your Painter?

You’ve made the decision that your house needs painting; it’s time to bite the bullet and get it done.  So many considerations, so many options, it can be overwhelming for many.

So what are you looking for in a painting contractor?  Is price the most important to you, or is workmanship?  Or is there something else?  Consider this: selecting a painting contractor is about the entire package.  First of all, let’s get the business end out of the way.  They should be licensed and insured.  This should be checked with the Contractors State Licensing Board (www.cslb.ca.gov).  Check to see how long they’ve been in business and their business rating with the Better Business Bureau.  Check their references.  How involved in the community are they?  They should be a member of the local chamber of commerce.  If a local business gives back to the community, then why not support that business?

I would think you’d want to know about their painters.  How long have they been with the company and their experience would be important to know.  Longevity with a company says a lot about both the painter and the company.  Ask the references that you call if they are respectful of your property, clean up at the end of the work day, and how well they do their job.  If the painting contractor has a color consultant, that’s a big bonus.  People can be overwhelmed with the decision of selecting colors, and so having a professional help you through this process is a huge benefit.

At the end of your experience with a painting contractor, you should be happy with the results.  You should feel confident that the money you invested in protecting and beautifying your home also provided you with an experience that you would want to share with your friends.  That’s truly the sign of a good painting contractor.

Brooks did a fantastic job on our exterior and interior paint jobs. Quality was high, price was reasonable, and the team was extremely professional and detail-oriented. Mark was our crew lead and the team performed a number of exterior wood repairs, a door re-stain, interior and exterior painting. Mark clearly takes a lot of pride in his work and went above and beyond to ensure the work was high-quality, including finding exact matching siding to fix dry rot, and performing minor repairs that weren't even included in the quote. He and the team were all consistently positive and personable, joking with each other throughout the day, while also genuinely complimenting each other on the quality of their work. It was great to see, and that positivity definitely showed through the work they did. We couldn't be happier with the end result.

We are long time happy customers with many positive experiences with Brooks Painting. We have appreciated the assistance (and patience) with selecting paint colors, the professionalism of the staff and the high quality of workmanship. We recently had some interior painting done and the crew was on time, neat, careful inside the house and very easy to work with. They also cheerfully handled some unexpected drywall repair. I highly recommend Brooks Painting.

It was fun working with Chris and his crew. I’ve never had a contracted job go so smoothly from start to finish. The office was responsive to my needs, Corey was patient and helpful while I made color choices, and Chris made sure I was happy with the crew’s work every step of the way. Gabriel does amazing work as well. Very much a perfectionist like Chris. I don’t have a bad thing to say. The job is absolutely stunning and I’ve had so many neighbors tell me it’s beautiful. I’m happy to put one of your signs in my front yard if you’d like so people know as they drive by who did the work. Thank you Brooks Painting. I will be recommending you to anybody who asks.

What a difference!! We hired Brooks Painting to do both an interior refresh painting and a completely new exterior color. Everything was handled professionally and as promised. The team, from estimator to office to painters on site, was responsive, friendly and skilled. Brooks Painting is the most reliable contractor we have ever hired. Thank you Jeremy, Dan, Israel, and Kristen.

Chris and Gabriel were amazing. Corey was patient and helpful in answering questions and while I decided on colors. The office was easy to contact and had good follow-through. Thank you so much to Brooks for a job I could not possibly be happier with. Feel free to use me as a reference!

Brooks Panting Inc. just finished painting the exterior of our house. The crew did a terrific job. The house is a mid century modern with redwood paneling and an unusual amount of trim work. The Brooks crew was efficient, the quality of the painting was exceptional and the work was completed on time! Because of the age of the house several panels needed to be replaced. Brooks had the expertise to closely match the new paneling with the old paneling. I would not hesitate to recommend this company. They are professionals!
