  • 5/5 stars Interior Painting Verified Review

    My name is Barbara R.

    Let me start out by saying, I am very skeptical of contractors. Having moved to Memphis only a year ago, I have seen my share. Mark Calhoun (Calhoun Painting Company) put me at ease immediately. After obtaining several bids, Mark was selected to paint the entire interior of my five bedroom home.

    His ability to communicate and deliver as promised was most admirable. He outlined the scope of the job detailing the terms of our agreement. He kept me informed as it relates to exactly what his crew would be doing on any given day. Throughout the process, Mark consulted with me to make sure I was happy with the progress. Upon my request, he provided recommendations for paint color - which I found most helpful. I don't have all day to share my experience, but I feel that I could literally talk all day about how wonderful this experience has been. His crew spoke very highly of him as well. They are happy on their job which speaks volumes for the company. They are an extension of Mark - very cordial, professional, always clean up after themselves and provide a service that you are happy to pay for. THE JOB LOOKS GREAT ! ! !

    If you are looking for reliable painting service, I cannot imagine you finding anyone that will present higher standards.

    Mark C. from Calhoun Painting Company replied to this review on August 19, 2015:

    Barbara, thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. You (and your wonderful sisters, May and Sharon, were absolutely wonderful to work with and work for. We've painted for many customers over the years---some have been very kind and some have been hard to work for. I have to say, y'all are at the top of our "All-time-favorite-customers" list. It was fun and such a pleasure to work for you and your sisters. I'm so glad it all turned out so well, and that you're so happy with all that we did. The cabinets turned out beautiful and were the finishing touch today. I can't wait to see how the rest of your decorating project for the house comes together. I know when you're done it will be beautiful! Please give my thanks again to May for the pizza lunch today, as well as to Sharon and May for making us feel so at home while we worked in your home. They were the sweetest ever to work with. Thanks again for your business and for putting your trust in us. And thank you for your kind review. That means a lot to me. You're the kindest! Enjoy your new home!

    Mark was great from beginning to end. Just finished my home and looks great. His people were professional and conscientious. Paid him a little more than the other bids I received because of his personal touch. Thanks Mark

    Mark is very professional and prompt. Hands on. They painted the majority of interior of my home. I had builders flat paint & it was obviously not the best paint,so after 3years we needed it done. Mark gave us good ideas on paint choices.Quality of the work and his employees was exceptional. Price was extremely competitive for 2 coats of good Sherwin Williams paint. Was finished in 2 days. Definitely will use him again for the exterior. Thank you for a great job, Mark & company.

Question and answer

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I first learned to paint as a 19 year old kid working with a small painting company in Sioux City, Iowa, where I grew up. A year or so later I launched out on my own, specializing in painting the exterior of homes. But it wasn't until I was in my forties that I came to love and really appreciate the painting and decorating business---having mastered not just great painting skills and passing them along to those working for me, but also mastering customer service after having been in the corporate world for many years, where the importance of good customer service was ingrained into me.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Most of our work involves residential interior walls, trim and ceilings and painting the exterior of homes---we probably painted the outside of over 100 homes just this past year. We also clean and restain a lot of fences and decks and do a few designer Faux Finishes on ceilings, walls, vanities and sometimes furniture.

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. We recently were hired by a Thumbtack customer to paint a good part of the inside of her home. She was concerned about the quality of paint and finish, having had problems with the cheap contractor grade of paint that was on her walls when she purchased the home. When we were through she couldn't tell us enough how happy she was with the results, and left this review here on Thumbtack.

Definitely will use him again for the exterior. Thank you for a great job, Mark & company." - Marybeth A.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Painting companies and local painters come and go--its one of the highest turnover trades out there. And the trade tends to attract a lot of drug addicts and alcoholics. So its important to look for a reputable and highly skilled painting company which employs trustworthy and clean painters, has a track record of happy customers, and can provide you with references (be sure to call some of them). At Calhoun Painting Company we screen and employ only professional and trustworthy painters. In fact we receive compliments all the time about how friendly and professional our painters are. We also will provide you with two-page list of references with no less than 20 customers to call, and a copy of ten reviews from online. Providing these important things to you can save you from a contractor nightmare, and ensure a great contractor experience. That's our goal.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. That interior and exterior house painting is an art with many tricks to the trade that only come with experience. Its our privilege and pleasure to use that experience for the benefit of our customers. Second, that we're going to be there after the job's done if there is a problem. And third, that we plan on being around for long time, whereas many painting companies fall by the wayside after just a few months or years, and therefore unable to back up their work and guarantees.
