I booked a crew in TX through this service and I agree that they are 100% incompetent and a fraud. The amount of work they had to do should have taken no more than 4-5 hours yet after their 8 hours of work they were far from complete.

The quality of paint they did complete was horrible. There were bald spots, runs, drips everywhere and the ceiling painting was stopped several inches around the entire ceiling and around all light fixtures as well. All they had to do was paint the ceiling and touch up the kitchen in a 325 sqft area.

When they were done the house was a wreck. Also, after wrapping up the ceiling fan in plastic, they decided to turn on the light switch (yes the same one that controls the fan), which caused the pull chords to wrap around the shaft and strip the base off the nut, which then tore the wire for the lights. Not only did I have to fix their crappy painting, clean up their mess and buy more brushes because they took the ones I bought with them, but now I have to buy a new ceiling fan as well. They have never responded to my request to settle this matter. 

I will do my best to ensure this service is never used by anybody I know. The company is horrible at scheduling, horrible at providing skilled paining crews and absolutely the worst at returning calls or emails to correct the negligent work. $275 was definitely wasted using this service.

AUTHOR: Painters - ()

The above complaints are obviously by a competitor to slander us.

Just mention you've seen these false reviews online and we will extend a $50 discount to you. Remember you don't pay the balance of the job to our painters until you're happy with the work so we guarantee your satisfaction. This is absolutely a honest day's work for a honest day's pay. Don't let a angry competitor make up a false review online and make you go somewhere else to spend more money. That's eactly what they want you to do so they can get your business!

If your looking to save money on your painting project Please give us a call for a free no obligation phone consultation. (8OO)376-4066 CALL TODAY! PAINT TOMORROW! We work 7 days week.

We offer affordable painting crew for the day rates. Each painter can paint approximately 375 sq feet of production per day. Typically that would be 2-3 rooms per painter on average. We cannot guarantee that type of production but we do guarantee the quality of work will be done professionally. Wall repairs, multiple coats. ceilings, trim and doors take away from the overall production. Regardless whether you hire us or someone else to do your painting it should take the same amount of time and with our lower overhead costs we are able to help you save more money.

Please feel free to compare our prices to others. We do not have the extra overhead costs other companies will have. We receive a high call volume if we had to do an on site evaluation for each person who inquired about a painting project we would certainly have to raise our prices. For instance we do not have to pay estimators salaries, gas costs, parking fees, Maintenance on estimators vehicles, sales commissions to salespeople and the list goes on. If you are receiving other quotes simply ask the salesperson how many painters are needed and how long the job should take and compare their price to ours to see which best suits your needs. No reason to spend more on an overpriced estimate. Rent a painting crew for the day and save!!

We also get substantial paint store savings up to 60% off at Sherwin Williams. Our best discount is on Pro Mar 200 brand paint. Some paint contractors will offer to include the cost of paint in your estimate. These contractors will be making money off purchasing your paint. You should use our discount code to save money on your paint. The paint store salesperson will be happy to give you a color consultation and they are trained to tell you how much paint to buy and which kind of paint would work best for you.

We are a fully insured full service painting company. We can do anything you need done painting related. Our painters are also able to do minor handyman tasks at no additional costs at the crews discretion. It's a honest day's work for a honest day's day pay. If you require an additional day of work we would be happy to get you on the schedule for the following day or another day that works best for you.

We can do any job big or small but we specialize in small jobs. We started our painting crew for the day program after researching that many of our customers weren't getting any return calls from painting contractors willing to commit their labor force that didn't return larger dollar amounts. We focus on small jobs ranging from a couple rooms to a deck that needs to re-stained. Anything that's small that can be done in 1 day. Another way we help homeowners save money is we provide all of our top of the line painting equipment so they don't have to purchase expensive painting equipment that they would not use on a regular basis.

If you are shopping around with other companies please beware of companies with no websites, language barriers, or ones who show up with no company trucks or uniforms these could be potential red flags for fly by night contractors. Also avoid high priced estimates with contractors who may rush to complete the job to maximize profits. If our painters your job early please feel free to find them something else to paint for the remainder of the 8 hour day.

Our prices can't be beat by a reputable painting company! Why pay someone else more? You pay our painters at the end of the day once you are happy with the work so there would be no reason to spend more anywhere else!
