We are having our first child and had everything ready for our little girls arrival. I love Pink so the entire nursery was painted and accented in various shades of Pink. Friday we received the definitive news that our little girl is actually a little boy! Once I absorbed the news I realized we needed to change the nursery colors asap! Luckily for us I was able to hire Brian on extremely short notice because another client of his flaked leaving his schedule open! He was very accommodating, working on a Saturday and Sunday. He is really knowledgeable in the different types of paint. (I had no idea there is such a thing!) He recommended a type of paint with no VOCs in it due to my sensitivity and pregnancy. The end result is far nicer than the original Pink paint job done by another company. I highly recommend Brian for any of your painting needs. We are having him come back to paint my husband's study and to power-wash the outside of our house once our little boy has arrived.

Blue Moon washed the interior and exterior of Windows and replaced screens. Great attention to detail. He was able to remove paint and spots that I could not get out. Looks fabulous!

We had David rip out our 27 year old shower and install a new, modern, tiled shower enclosure. The results were beautiful. We also had him rip out the old lightbox and install new lights, rip out the old vanity and install a new one, and then texture and paint the new drywall. It was all done very well. David was always punctual and conscientious, and worked long days to get our job done as quickly as possible. It looks great, at a fraction of the cost of what Home Depot or similar businesses charge.

I met with 3 different painters to get estimates, but MANUEL was the reason that I ended up picking D&M Affordable Custom Painting! I loved that he was very observant during the initial walk-thru, asked good questions, provided options for solutions to various issues I showed him, his quote was very reasonable & the bonus was that I got him between projects, so D&M could start the next day!! I had vault ceilings, a large hole in the hallway wall upstairs (-plumber had to cut it open after shower pipes burst). I also had a crown moulding problem that needed repair & several old, non-functioning thermostat boxes that were removed and now needed those holes to be drywalled & painted. Manuel wasn't phased in the least by the obstacles and said they would take care of it all! D&M made sure to cover the floors and prep every room and they were even nice enough to remove the wire closet organizers from our master bedroom and a couple other misc items that I should have taken care of beforehand, but had accidentally forgotten about. I had planned on providing the paint, but in the end Manuel was able to get the (Frazee) paint faster and cheaper than I could have gotten it, and he matched the color beautifully with the more expensive (Behr) paint color I had initially wanted. The job took 2-1/2 days and I was not able to do the final walk-thru with Manuel (-I was stuck at work), so he left our key in the lockbox outside as planned. When I got home though & started inspecting the work, I was so surprised because not only did D&M do an AMAZING job on the entire 2 story home, but I soon discovered that they even touched up the paint on the sections of our ceiling that needed it, caulked the crown moulding that we had messed up, and even touched up a wall near our stairs... ALL of which, I had initially told Manuel I would take care of myself (since we were on a limited budget).. WOW!! It looked SOOOoo good that I couldn't stop smiling!! I LOVED it!! I honestly can't say enough good things about D&M! I'm so thrilled to have picked them & I have been telling everyone about Manuel, because he's honestly a great person. Very caring, meticulous, family-oriented & an extremely skilled worker! In fact, I was so bummed to learn later (after we scheduled flooring) that D&M even installs hardwood floors! I think D&M Affordable Custom "Painting" is a misleading name, because their team is clearly very talented, even beyond paint. I trusted them completely & will be using them from now on!

We had water damage, a bizarre whole-ceiling light fixture a la 70s, damaged linoleum flooring, 1/4-1/2” brown grout lines. & more. Jason fixed it all beautifully, demoing, drywalling, painting, tiling, cleaning, & painting more. His work is impeccable, he is very neat, & he did it all in about 5 days. He was helpful when we ran into plumbing issues, & when asked to add on random details like replacing damaged casing, painting the grout (eco-friendly), & helping with the ceiling fan, he was obliging.

Rudy was absolutely incredible! He was responsive, friendly, and most importantly: HONEST! He continued to ask me questions about my project to make sure he was providing the most accurate quote. He was able to squeeze me in within DAYS of providing me a quote and he arrived EARLY to look over the project once more. From there, he got started right away. I was extremely impressed with his quality of work and am so thankful for him and his service. He came to paint my fence and I was so impressed by his abilities, I hired him to come back and paint my whole house. If you have any painting project, Rudy is your guy! Trustworthy, reliable, professional and high quality work! 5 Stars!

I'm an interior designer and hired Eagle Finishing to refinish a wicker dining set for a client. It had a lot of damage, which they repaired flawlessly. It looks brand new. FYI their work is fabulous, but they are not punctual. You do need to follow up and prod them. Also, they were supposed to replace the casters but didn't order them in time to install before delivery. It is something we could do. My client and I overlooked these inconveniences because the quality of their work is exceptional.

Daniel and his team were awesome! I posted on Thumbtack that I needed a last minute painter ASAP, and he responded about ten minutes after my post saying he could help. I then called him, and he said he could get someone from his team to come out first thing in the morning, which was exactly what I needed as I was scheduled to move out of my apartment that same day. I had already done two coats of paint on my own and definitely realized I needed a professional to finish up the job. The next morning, one of his guys showed up right on time and got the job done in a little over an hour. He was quick and did a fantastic job on my room! If I ever need a painter in the future, Daniel will definitely be the person I call!

Javier did a really nice job on painting our backyard fence, side fence and flower box. He was very responsive online and gave me a quote in advance. He also responded to my questions regarding the type of paint to get in advance. He took great care of my yard and left my plants in perfect condition. I definitely recommend him and will hire him again.

Nicholas was hired to paint our backyard fence. He responded to my questions in a timely manner and kept in contact with me until the job was completed. He did an excellent job. The fence wasn't in great shape but it looks terrific now! I would not hesitate to hire Nicholas again.

Pedro did an amazing job w/ all of our tile work: he completed two bathrooms, and rebuilt our fireplace. He was very reliable, professional, provides high quality work/service, and fast...we also hired him to help with some custom cabinet/shelf painting, and that also turned out beautifully. We would definitely recommend him (and will probably use him again!)

I have family coming in to visit from out of town next week and I wanted to freshen up my guest room. I hired Tilt Up Painting because of how professional he was over the phone. The owner Jose, was very knowledgable. He answered all of my questions. I am happy that he was available on such short notice. I did not really know what color to choose, so Jose suggested a beautiful grey with an accent wall. He even went to the paint store and purchased the paint for me! He also painted my baseboard a bright white and that detail made all the difference in my guest room. The room now looks new and fresh and ready for the holiday season! I am so happy to find a painter that takes pride in his work. I will be calling him again to help me with another room that I need updated in my home. Thank you so much Jose!

We were desperate for a painter to do a huge job painting the interior & exterior of our house so we could list it quickly. Juan and his excellent team worked through the weekend for us to help get the job done quickly. I couldn’t believe the amazing quality and speed of his work! I am recommending him to my realtor and everyone I know looking for a reliable, friendly painter who does top notch work! Thank you, Juan and your hard workers!!
