    I would use these guys again. Color consulting was only offered by these guys, production manager was very professional, and the crew did a great job in about 3 days. They will certainly get my rental house project.

    Color consultation was only offered by this company. Great communication all the way through the process.

    These guys just finished my place. What an incredible job! Everything went so smoothly, from Ben's friendly personality during his estimate, to the beautiful finished product. Such attention to detail! Go with these guys--you'll be glad you did!

    Our experience did not start off well with this company but ended on a good note. Unfortunately, the quality of the paint job, communication, and length of time it took to complete the job were all poor and we were left feeling disappointed. We were pleasantly surprised when the owner called and worked with us to try to make things right. I truly think that the owner cares about the quality of the work performed by his company and was unaware of what transpired at our house until after the fact. I still wish the process of having our house painted and the finished product would have been better but at least the owner cared enough to apologize and refund some of our money.

    We took bids for painting the exterior of our house and choose to have Foothills Painting do the job. The ability to have a color consultant work with us on choosing a color was a factor in choosing this company. We were very impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the painters who were actually assigned the job. They arrived prepared to work and got things done with a minimal amount of disruption to us. They did a very good job sealing and painting everything including our deck. The follow up from the foreman and painters for a few minor issues (slight touch up and overspray clean up) was handled quickly and efficiently with no hassle. I would highly recommend this company for anyone needing painting done by a reliable trustworthy company.

    Ben was very professional and did all touch ups that we asked for. Overall we are very pleased with the painting that was dome on our house.

    We didn't end up having our house painted with Foothills for reasons that have no relation with the type of company they are. We have been very pleased with their patience with us and knowledge of the painting industry. We will end up definitely using them in the future, and would recommend them to our friends for sure.

    I was very happy to have found Ben and Foothills Painting. From the get go Ben and his office were great to work with. We did the walk through with all of the insurance papers needed and decided on what needed to be done as well as what they were paying for and what I was paying for. This was very helpful. After hiring Foothills Painting they remained professional throughout the job. Scheduling was very important to my wife and I since we have 4 dogs, and need to be home during times like these. Foothills was right on schedule as well as being respectful of our animals. They did a great job with the painting of the house, as well as being quick to touch up any minor spots I might have noticed. I would recommend Ben and Foothills Painting to anyone that is looking for a professional outfit to help with the painting needs.

Q&A

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
It is important to know that for a typical two story home in Colorado can vary greatly in price. I could come up with a quote as low as $2000-$2500, or as high as $6000-$8000 depending on the materials being use, the level of prep work required, and complexity of the job. This is why we do a detailed written estimate, to confirm you are getting exactly what you want, and we can provide multiple options you can compare side by side.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
After spending 6 years working with a national painting company, I realized I was really good at running a painting business... and there are a lot of really bad painting companies out there. So I thought it'd be a good opportunity, and something I knew I was good at. We've just grown and grown from there.
What types of customers have you worked with?
We are experts are residential exterior painting. Most of the homes we paint are 7-20 years old, getting their 2nd or 3rd paint job ever. Common problems on the house is peeling paint on trim boards, door trim, window trim, garage trim, fading paint on the south or sunny sides of the house, and cracking joints where boards meet. These are all common problems in Colorado and can be fixed very easily. If they are not fixed, however, they can lead to expensive carpentry problems.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We had a painter who missed an appointment with a customer. The customer was very upset, and wrote a horrible review about us on our Facebook page. Within 1 hour she was contacted by one of the owners of the business and the production manager. Within 24 hours she had met with the co-owner and production manager. Within 48 hours all of her concerns were resolved, and she wrote us a new 5 star review. We don't run into problems often, but problems inevitably happen. It's how we deal with breakdowns that I'm proud of.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Trust yourself. Hire the company that you are most comfortable with and make sure everything is in a written agreement.
