Outstanding work, and extremely professional. If I need painting again, I will hire John.Jul 2, 2017Verified
John was available last minute to paint a room prior to our move in. He did a great job and was easy to work with. We didn't have time to compare prices so might have had it done for less but we're happy it was done with such short notice.Sep 27, 2016Verified
Tells Painting did a great job painting my living area (kitchen, dining room & living room) & master bedroom. I requested that the ceilings, walls, doors & trim be painted along with some wall repairs. The work was done very quickly & turned out excellent. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. I would not hesitate to hire Telles Painting again in the future. John & Michelle were wonderful to work with!Feb 2, 2017Verified
I hired John and Michele Telles to paint two apartments while I was still working on moving out of those apartments. I very much appreciated their flexibility and good customer service skills. They listened to what my needs were, and knew what questions to ask to fill in the gaps. I wanted them to pick and provide a standard cream paint color, patch some problem areas, and paint all of the two apartments. They offered labor assistance in several other ways. They were available quickly, did the work quickly and well, communicated well in person and via email without misunderstandings (something I have learned isn't always easy to find in the contractor world). I would definitely hire them back.Nov 21, 2016Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Telles Painting does not have a standard pricing since quote is based upon the existing condition and difficulty of each project. Therefore, Telles Painting would need to view each project or blue prints before providing an exact quote. After such review, Telles Painting will determine the number of days, number of materials required as well as man power to calculate the bid cost to complete such project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When working with new customers, Telles Painting will generally set up an appointment with potential customers, then personally speak or meet with such customers to see exactly what type of work is required. Telles Painting views their property and get back with them with a verbal quote or a written proposal via email. If proposal is accepted, customers are to sign a written bid proposal. Before start of work, generally Telles Painting requires 1/2 deposit of bid cost. Telles Painting will then arrange or schedule a Start date, meanwhile; materials are ordered, then we start work when scheduled and upon completion, the remaining balance of bid cost is due.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Owner, John Telles have attended the painter's apprenticeship program in Honolulu for 4 years at Honolulu Community College where he has gained great knowledge in all types of painting variations, various coatings, wall coverings, proper methods of staining, epoxy coatings, elastomeric coatings, etc. John have also worked with many Union painting contractors where he has gained additional painting experiences of all types on residential, commercial as well as industrial projects. All training received is passed on to family members as well as employees hired who all assist with projects when needed.
