    Robert and his crew went beyond our expectations in price, professionalism, consideration of us and our home. Watching Chris paint our 15 foot ceilings was enough to convince us that we had made the absolute correct choice. There was literally nothing they did that disappointed. They gave us much more than promised and saved my neck and back for sure. I would recommend them to anyone...and already have.

    Robert and his team were great! They did an excellent job! I want to say they are one of the best painter we have ever hired in sarasota. We will use them again! Not only because their price is reasonable and they did not leave a mess behind for me to clean:-)! Thank you again Robert!

    I used Robert and Tropical Painting for my interior painting project. I can say without any hesitation that Robert and his crew were the most outstanding, professional contractors that I've ever used! Robert's attention to detail and willingness to do whatever it took to make me happy was unrivaled. Not only was the quality of the work exemplary, but he was a pleasure to deal with. He listened to all my concerns, took notes and did exactly what I wanted. He responded promptly to every call, text and email and never left me hanging. He made me feel that my project was the only one he was working on and gave it full attention. Not only that, but he saved me from another unscrupulous contractor, whom I hired to do carpentry for the project. He filled me in on all the deficiencies in that contracto'rs work and stood behind me when dealing with that contractor and went above and beyond to make sure that all that inferior work was corrected. He was a Godsend. I can't tell you how glad my wife and I were that we hired Robert and Tropical painting! I will use him again for my upcoming exterior painting job and for any other work I need done in the future. He's a gentleman's gentleman, a true professional of the highest caliber and I can't say enough about him and his company. I wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a painting or drywall contractor. You can't go wrong with Tropical Painting. I'd give him 10 stars, if I could.

    Robert and his pro crew just finished painting the 3000 sf interior of my inlaws house (for MLS photos). It looks great, and they finished on budget and ahead of schedule. Tropical has refinished all the ceilings in our home, painted the interior, and we have referred them to friends who are all very happy as a result of Robert's work. Tropical's pricing is fair and we will definitely refer them again!

    The Best I Have Ever Hired
    Tropical Painting is one of the best, if not the best, home improvement type company I have ever hired. They really go the extra mile. Robert is just a good guy who is willing to do everything within reason (and occasionally beyond) to satisfy a customer. His crew is polite and professional. We never had the feeling that we had to endure a bunch of undesirables in our house. The job was top notch, and they left the house in excellent condition. Also there price was very reasonable, and cheaper than many, if not most. I very highly recommend them. It is worth working with them just to prove that this kind of ethical tradesman still exists.

    Wow! I don't even know where to begin. I was in an absolute mess created by hiring someone else and Tropical Painting came in and completely and thoroughly fixed everything within 2 days. They went so far above and beyond I was truly amazed. The quality of work is impeccable, completely professional and you get so much more than you pay for - such a great value. I will never hire anyone else to do painting for me but Robert and I will not hesitate to recommend Tropical Painting to all my friends and family.

    Very happy and satisfied with the work. Robert is extremely professional, polite, respectful and patient. Did a great job, taking time to do it right. And his employee was also terrific. Would have no reservations in hiring again. I had a quote that was slightly lower but I went with Tropical by instinct and am happy I did.

    We hired Robert to paint the exterior of our house. We got two other estimates and his estimate was right in the ball park. We decided to go with Robert because he took the time to tell us what his quote included. Important to us was that he did the pressure washing (not us) and something we didn't know was that he put a coat of primer on the house which apparently is important in the Florida sun!! Taking the time to explain these things to us is what made us select him. We were not disappointed!! His team did a fabulous job!! The scheduling of the job was on time, the showed up on time, their work was clean, neat and very professionally done. Our house looks fabulous!! They painted the main house, did trim work and painted the front doors. Three colors. All his was done in 6 days from pressure washing to them packing up and leaving. We couldn't be happier. We not only would use them again, but we would highly recommend them to our friends!!

    We had Robert in to do the main part of our house - foyer, dining room, living room, kitchen and master bedroom. He along with James and Brian did such a great job that we had them come back to complete the other areas of the house! Punctual, professional and polite would be an accurate description. We would definitely recommend Robert and his company to anyone! Joann S. of Lakeside Plantation, North Port

    I had Tropical Painting Company paint the exterior of our home. From the initial consult to the finishing touches on the job, Robert and his team did a very professional job! My wife and I are very happy with the quality of the work and the courteous service of this group of craftsman. Robert does a good job of explaining the painting process and the techniques used. The written estimate is clear and the pricing is explained clearly and honestly. I recommend having Tropical come by your painting project and discuss your needs. Tropical Painting provides quality work. They made our home look 20 years younger. We are grateful for great work done for us. Give a call and get an estimate --well worth your time.

    Exterior paint on entire house. The crew was professional and did a great job. Robert was willing to go "the extra mile " to help with house #'s, light fixtures, door locks, etc. They were never in a hurry to "get it done" - took the time to make it beautiful! Thank you!

    I hired Tropical Painting to remove the popcorn ceiling and then paint the entire interior of my newly purchased home (just under 2000 sf). The work was done on time and within the original quoted price provided (except for a minor add on requested by myself). Mr Baker showed up promptly daily and prosecuted the work in a very efficient and diligent manner until the job was complete. As we were living in the house and my partner has significant health issues, he and his workers accommodated our special needs to allow us to live in a portion of our home while he worked in other portions. My experience with Mr Baker was that he was very professional and very customer oriented. He and his workers were respectful of our property and our special needs. He went out of his way to make us as comfortable as practical considering the amount of dust and debris the project generated. My profession was working with contractors and it is rare to find a contractor with as much integrity, honesty and cooperation as Mr Baker demonstrated on this contract. I will have him on the top of my list for any future painting needs. Top notch attitude, quality work and a very pleasant experience overall. Thanks Tropical Painting!

    Robert guided us with his copius experience throughout the painting of our new home. Using only the finest materials, he was meticulous, articulate and knowlegeable. In short you would be nuts not to use him. His prices are very fair. Personally I think he should raise them. No, I'm not a relative, I just appreciate professionalism. Robert was always on time and worked into the night, 7 days a week to get the job done. Truly a master painter with customer service paramount in his work.

not complicated at all, just has variables, depending on project details desired. 1...SQ FT...Varies on how many square feet, and amount of prep work involved to achieve the desired finish...5000 feet is cheaper than 1000 feet. ( Bulk ) 2...Mixed rate...Add all workers hourly wages - divide by how many workers - x by 8 hours - x by how many workers for the rate per day...Example for 3 workers...$ 20 +$ 20 +$ 20 = $ 60 divided by 3 workers = $ 20 x 8 hours = $160 x 3 workers = $480 per day rate + your material cost ( primer / paint. ) EXAMPLE OF FORMAT ONLY....NOT ACTUAL PRICING.
