 Painting a 157 Year-Old Home in Winters with Farrow & Ball Paint

Project Spotlight

Brooks Painting just wrapped up a 5-week project painting the interior of Park Winters. This home was originally built in 1865, and it still maintains a lot of the original charm. We were hired by SNW Construction in conjunction with the owners of Park Winters to work on this project while the venue closed down from Christmas until the end of January. It's a very popular and beautiful wedding venue, and boutique bed and breakfast in Yolo County. We were honored to have been trusted with this 157 year-old home, and we were excited to add this project to our portfolio.

What started as a smaller project, quickly morphed into painting the entire inside of the historic home. The owner requested we use Farrow & Ball paint for this project. Farrow & Ball is a British manufacturer of paints and wallpapers largely based upon historic color palettes and archives. The company is particularly well known for the unusual names of its products. This was our first time using this paint, and it was a pleasure to work with. The colors are rich and have a depth that is simply amazing. This paint brand is not readily available as their only local store is in Berkeley. However, the staff was easy to work with, and we easily got our paint shipped to the job site in three days.

Our Crew Leader, Mark, did an amazing job balancing the growing scope of work, added staff, and other trades. With the venue being closed for just five weeks, we had to efficiently work alongside many other trades during throughout the project. It is not an easy task to have a nice paint finish when others are creating dust or are in your way.  Mark handled the stress with poise, and he and his crew produced a quality paint job.

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.

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!

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.

The crew is as neat and reliable as the actual painting job and paint used. No boom boxes!! Cordial staff spoke English. The crew got along with each other and worked as a team. The actual finish is / was beautiful. We would like to use Brooks again!

Very professional. Painters were very accommodating on the little things.

My experience with Brooks Painting has been outstanding, and, if it were an option on Google, I would assign 100 stars to their work. Mark and his crew were exceptional in painting both the inside and outside of my Central Davis home. They were considerate, careful, and respectful of my furnishings and yard. Kristen and her office staff were also responsive to my queries and were timely in scheduling the work. Thank you Brooks Painting for assisting in transforming my house into a beautiful home!

We would recommend them highly. [They] painted and did a good job. Kept everything clean and cleaned up after, very polite.

Very professional, I appreciate the time they took to make sure everything was taken care of for my house! I really liked that Jaime stepped up and told me not to paint my front door like the house and then chose a color that worked great. Thank you!
