I am almost at a loss for words when trying to review First Painting.
First, let me tell you about the quoting process. John responded very quickly when I put in my request for a quote on Thumbtack - almost instantly, in fact. He was courteous, polite, professional, and he came to the house to take a look at what our plans were. My wife was very impressed that he took his shoes off when he entered our home, which we took as a good sign that he would be treating our home with a lot of respect.
John provided a detailed quote, and gave us a price that was significantly better than the competitors. On top of that, he was able to get a crew together to start the project within just a couple of days - and keep in mind this was the week before Christmas!
Once the First Painting crew arrived (right on time, mind you!) they got to work immediately. First, they went around the entire house to patch nail holes and repair any imperfections in the walls. They put down tons of drop cloths and plastic to protect our belongings, plus they were nice enough to move our furniture for us so they could get to the walls. They made sure that none of our furniture was damaged, and that no paint got on the floors or other places it wasn't supposed to be.
Our project included painting our garage, mud room, kitchen, living room, dining room, office as well as all of the bedrooms and bathrooms. In addition to that, we asked John and his crew to paint our cabinets.
Let me tell you, we COULD NOT be happier with the outcome of the project! All of the walls look perfect and brand new! The cabinets look like they belong in an article in a magazine! We are simply ECSTATIC with the quality of work! The entire project took just under three days, and each day the crew showed up exactly on time and ready to get to work.
Some more perks to working with John and First Painting:
- They were able to get us a great price on our paint, and brought a receipt for the paint purchase
- John is VERY responsive
- John is also extremely respectful of your home; he makes sure that the crew takes their shoes off before entering, and they go to great lengths to protect your furniture and flooring
- First Painting offered by far the BEST PRICE of all the quotes we received through Thumbtack
- John is an excellent communicator, and really is engaged when you're discussing the project with him
- Each day when the crew was packing up, John took me around to each room to ensure that they had cleaned everything up and to review their work. If anything needed touching up or cleaning, they jumped right on it
All in all, honestly folks, I have hired several painters and other professionals through Thumbtack. I have NEVER received this level of service from anyone, much less at the lowest price I was quoted. John is building his small business, and I can guarantee you that you won't be disappointed if you give him a try. There is obviously a reason that this company has almost a perfect 5 star rating, and it's because they are VERY good at what they do!
I've attached some pictures of our project below, please forgive the poor quality pictures but the results are unbelievable! I am so thankful to John and his crew that I told him that he can use me as a referral for any future projects he is bidding.
Give First Painting a try, you will NOT be disappointed!
