Clayton was great! He called me every evening to go over progress and what to expect at each stage of the project. He painted my whole place. I have a 1 bedroom condo. He did everything from top to bottom. I changed all the wall colors and the color of the base boards and trim. My place looks beautiful. I would recommend him to my friends and family and anyone else looking for an experienced painter. Couldn’t be happier.Oct 30, 2019VerifiedVan Fleet Painting Services's reply

Van Fleet did not complete the work as promised. I have work they promised to complete the end of August that never was completed. After multiple attempts to contact them, I had to hire someone else to complete the work. He also left damage to the property. The painting job was marginal and Van Fleet was also not very reliable. It was not the quality experience I expected. I would look elsewhere if you are looking for a quality reliable painter.Oct 2, 2018VerifiedVan Fleet Painting Services's reply
Thank you for taking time to provide your feedback of recent experience. VanFleet Painting Service is a successful company and well regarded by home and business owners. We have been providing home improvement services for over 34 years. When we make mistakes, we do everything possible to make up for them. I was disappointed when I read your review of our painting services. I was unaware of your dissatisfaction. Nevertheless, I don’t believe the comment of “I would look elsewhere if you are looking for a quality reliable painter” was necessary. I would like to address your concerns; When you stated the painting work was not completed. I am confused as you stated you were very happy with the painting services, which I was hired to do.The original project was completed prior to tenant occupancy. I do apologize that we were not able to connect again, however calls were placed with no response. I believe I went above and beyond and the additional services I provided were outside my skilled scope. Payment in full was not received and only a small portion of the landscaping was left undone which I was unsure you wanted to complete. I was not made aware of any property damage the last time I was there or when we spoke. Please contact me directly to further discuss what we can do to resolve the dissatisfaction.
Clayton did a fantastic job for our wrap around porch trim painting. This was a job that required quite a bit of detail. Clayton explained the process, was on time, and worked carefully and efficiently. We plan to hire him again for all of our future work. 5 - star!Jun 27, 2018VerifiedVan Fleet Painting Services's reply
Thank you so much for your kind words, Ray. I appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience. I consider myself lucky for customers like you. I look forward to working with you again in the future! Clayton
Properly scrape and prep siding before repainting. Other paint professionals called the prep work that was done "absolutely terrible"Oct 16, 2018Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each job is bid independently. I am willing to work with customers to implement payment terms that are comfortable with the individual client. I do provide an discount for repeat customers and referral work.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My typical process in beginning a new client relationship is to offer I a complimentary quote to everyone of my prospective clients to ensure a good fit. This initial strategy session will help us get a clear expectation of the services requested. If we decide to move forward together, the client and I will make all decisions and set time frames, the depth of work is up to the client.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have 30 + yrs. experience working as a painter both commercial and residential, and interior and exterior. The experience applies to both pairing and staining for new and established construction. I’m an experienced aerial lift operator and i have obtained certification in identifying and safely working with lead paint, which means Becoming certified follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, which states that if you are paid to perform renovation, repair, or painting work in houses built before 1978, you must be trained to do so.
