Do You Know Who You Hired and Why?

Brooks Painting recently started an exterior painting project on 6 commercial concrete buildings that have not been painted in 15 years, and they were (are) a mess. During the process of the washing, prepping and painting we discovered a number of interesting things.

What Went Wrong Before Brooks Painting?

This particular commercial property owner previously hired another painting company and gave them the “keys to the store” as one would say. No one really watched what was going on.

  • You could tell where paint had peeled off the building and no primer was ever applied prior to doing the new paint job.
  • The paint was so thin you could see the original color showing through the darker top coat color.
  • Cracks in the concrete walls were filled with caulking and never smoothed out to blend in with the walls.
  • Concrete walls with large portions of the wall missing form settling were filled over with fiberglass.
  • Caulking was applied over the top to seal the fiberglass.
  • Duct tape was used to cover holes that should have been filled and patched with concrete.

The listed just goes on and on. This proves the point you get what you paid for. Just because someone says they are a licensed painter or painting company does not mean he has your best interest in mind. These types of guys stay busy, but do not last long, and when they close shop they change their company name. Then another group of painters just like them is ready to fill their shoes with the same poor craftsmanship.

Will Not Make the Same Mistake Twice

This client has learned a valuable lesson. This type of work has caused substantial damage to their buildings and caused more cost to re-paint and repair than it should have if it was done right the first time. Anybody can paint a building but not everybody should paint a building! It needs to be done with the proper safety equipment, tools, products and professionals!

When the goal of a property owner is the lowest price, you are setting everyone up for failure: the property owner and the painting company.

Start knowing who you are hiring. See the buildings they have done over the years. Call past clients to make sure they backed up their warranty if needed. You want a company that puts the interest of the client first. You want a working relationship with your subcontractors to build trust and loyalty for both parties involved. One last thing, this does not mean that the highest price companies are the best either. Sometimes they overbid a project because they do not know what they are doing either. So do your homework and make sure the company you hire stacks up to being the best for your painting needs.

Hiring Brooks Painting was an easy and professional process the whole way through, from the estimate to the completion of having my very high walls edged, where I was unable to reach them. Crew Leader Eric was prompt and super capable, which was a relief since he had to maneuver and climb a very tall ladder. He was also in the process of teaching a newer painter and I admired his positive and encouraging manner. In addition, he was willing to respond to my requests with ease. No regrets here! The edging looks amazing and only took 4 hours to complete.

Consummate professionals! We hired Brooks to repaint the exterior of our house, and they did a fantastic job. The paint looks wonderful, everyone was also on time, friendly, and respectful of our property. Exceptional communication through the entire process. I was worried about damage to the landscaping near the house (bad previous experience with another outfit), but they were all very understanding and the crew was super careful. Did what they said they would do with no weirdness, no smoking, no radio, and they cleaned up after themselves nicely. This picky customer is very happy!

Eric and his crew were on time every day and did a very thorough job. I was thrilled that they were willing to paint my outdoor light fixtures which were getting rusty. I was particularly impressed how much time they spent going over their work at the end to catch spots that were missed. I’ll be using them again for interior painting.

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!

Listened to my needs and offered good suggestions. Customer confidence in value and quality.

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.

Brooks Painting has be in business a long time in our area. As a native resident we have seen and heard of their professional & quality painting. In looking for bids on painting our house Brooks was referred numerous times. When Jeremy came out to meet us we were sold on using their services and looked no further. Every aspect of this company was very upfront, professional and made us feel safe, valued and comfortable hiring them. The office staff kept good communication with us. The color matching was perfect. The crew showed up on time, were respectful and did a great job from prep to the final end of the project. The warranty offered was a plus and the liability coverage gave us peace of mind also. The price was well worth all that was included in the project so we had little to do but move our stuff away from the house. Thank you Brooks painting, crew and staff for making our home new again :)

Mark and the team from Brook’s Painting are exceptional at their jobs. We recently renovated a 5000sqft home and they did all the painting. Their attention to detail and investment in our project is so appreciated, and we knew we were in good hands with them. The value they add by identifying issues, making suggestions and going the extra mile to deliver quality work and make sure we are happy with our home is such a breath of fresh air. I would hire this team and company for any future work in a heartbeat and can’t say enough how amazing they are!
