Michael oversaw our exterior paint job being sure his employees were staying on schedule (taking weather into consideration). He consistently communicated with them and us. He made sure to answer any questions we might have and made absolutely sure we were satisfied with the job. Which we are! We would definitely recommend Michael Smart/ CertaPro!

CertaPro Painters did a great job painting our home. Mr. Smart was very professional and the crew on site was friendly and respectful. They answered all of my questions and provided a detailed quote and a great warranty. I will definitely work with them again.

There was a serious disconnect between what we were told to convince us to hire CertaPro and what ended up actually happening. We had a very large and complicated job and interviewed several painters. We chose CertaPro because we were assured quality work in a timely manner by a large and professional crew. We were told the job would take 4 or 5 days. It took 12 days (not including days the crew did not work in the interim). We were told our job, being large, would require an 8 man crew. The crew size was inconsistent. At some times there were as few as 3, at most 6. New crewmen were brought in partway through the project and they weren’t given an accurate project description or instructions, so mistakes were made. We were told all paints would be purchased from a single store and even a single mixer. 7 days into the project, not all of the paints had even been purchased despite our paying a sizable downpayment that was also not communicated in the original estimate. We were told and saw in the estimate that all of the project would be listed out with appropriate details so nothing would be missed and everything would be clearly communicated to the crew. Many items in the estimate did not make it to the work order. Crew required daily verbal reminders of which paints to use where, of what was and was not being painted. Crew and owner were “surprised” to find out things that needed doing despite them being identified in our walk through and even included in the proposal. Crew was not properly prepared for the job before beginning. The crew also did a poor job protecting furniture, floors, and fixtures from dust and paint, and lines between trim and walls were sloppily done and not straight despite repeated requests for touch ups. The crew showed up late every day, left early several days, and did not keep a clean workspace. On the plus side, the job foreman was very polite and listened to our requests and even came back to the house to fix something we realized had been missed. But the job was overall too big for CertaPro to manage, and we were out additional monies for hotel, dog boarding, and house cleaning because of miscommunications and poor professionalism. I’ve used and rated well other painters on other projects, and we were highly disappointed by what we got from CertaPro for how much we paid above other painters’ estimates. We will be looking elsewhere for future projects. I would recommend them only for smaller projects, or perhaps for exterior work that does not require as much precision or care.

Details: Home • 8+ rooms • Walls • Trim • Ceiling • Doors • Window frames • 8 - 10 feet • Repainting - color change • Fair - minor holes and scratches • The painter • No, this is not new construction • Yes, I would like the painter to help move things

As to your first point, I think this is a case of the customer hearing what they want to hear and disregarding the rest. When we talked about how long it would take, I told you I don't know why you think it would take 4 or 5 days, rather, it is more like 7 *working* days, and the guys probably won't work on Sundays. In the end, despite difficulties, that is how long it took. I worked with you to schedule the job around dates you wanted to avoid, and we started on time. We did order most of the paint up front - I have the email to prove it. There was an issue with the store putting some of it in a corner somewhere and forgetting about it, and insisted they did not have it. It took some time for them to finally find the stuff they misplaced. We told you about this at the time and kept you up to date. You also are ignoring what we did for you. After we started the job we found a lot of the existing trim paint was not the right kind and was pulling off as we painted over top of it. We brought in grinders with HEPA filter vacuum cleaners to strip off the bad paint. This increased the time it took for us to finish the job. Did we charge you extra? No. And we restained the inside of your front door and did not charge you for that, either. We did clean up, and put up plastic sheeting to keep dust from roaming about the house. We did go through and make sure the cut lines were done properly. In the end, you got what you asked for and more. You should not judge a project on how things look while they are being done, but at the end results.

This group of painters were hard-working and consistent in quality of their workmanship. They were especially attentive to details and were eager to please, respectful and prompt.
