Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: At FAF painting we take pride in preparation before painting, we believe preparation before painting is 50% at a minimum and anything less than 2 coats is unacceptable. after 15 years in the trade I decided to start my company, feeling frustrated with big painting companies giving the client 50% of the work that should be done while the client was giving 100% of the payment, at FAF painting you'll be getting 100% in preparation and painting in exchange for your 100% I love walking to a place that looked like it had better days and walking out of the same place looking like something entirely different because now it looks beautiful, that's what FAF painting is all about

I got quotes on painting our exterior from 6 different companies. FAF painting landed right in the middle of the prices, but I was impressed with the questions Fernando asked and the details he provided, so we went with him. Fernando and Marvin were super thorough and very communicative. He contacted me whenever there was a question about the painting and he often had good advice (what kind of paint to use, whether to use trim or primary on different parts of the house, etc.). He also had a carpenter he was able to contact and get to do some work on short notice when there was some rot found in some wood. We love the finished product and we haven't found any detail problems that we have found before when we went with the lowest bid (we often find the lowest bid tries to do work fast, but ends up cutting corners that you notice later). Both Fernando and Marvin are super nice and accommodating as well. Highly recommend!

Details: Home • Two stories • Entire building • 2,500 - 3,000 sq ft • Wood • Brick • No visible exterior damage

I know of several people who have had their house painted. But none would recommend the person / company that painted their home. We tried! This will not be the case here. Ferando and his team have transformed our home completely (and it wasn’t bad before). We have received very positive feedback from our neighbors and people who happen to have driven by our home. In fact, some have indicated that they would like to copy our color scheme – we have told them that they should consider a package deal: our colors and our painter Fernando. We spoke to 5 companies about painting out house. Fernando stood out with his knowledge of paints, the type and quality of the surfaces he would have to paint, and his honest cost estimate. We liked everything he proposed and were very comfortable in his knowledge. Fernando and his amazing crew, especially Marvin, paid attention to every small detail during their work. They did not take a single short cut through the entire process. There were times when we were wondering if they are being too careful – the end-product showed that they were not. They piled their equipment in one part of the house and deposited everything back in place at the end of the day. What really impressed us is how they dealt with the rapidly changing weather and the rain almost every alternated day. There were times when we were nervous about losing days to rain. Fernando put at ease by quoting a Spanish rule that he follows: “We have mounted the horse… we are not going to get off it until we reach the destination.” Bottomline – Fernando and his team did a fabulous job within the budget he had proposed. They left the house premises clean and in perfect condition. Oh, one last thing: a couple of days after everything was done, we got a call from Fernando – “I believe I may have missed a spot of touch-up. It is not visible from the ground, but it has kept me up at night. I will come and do it and I promise I won’t disturb you. Yes, he came and finished the touch up!! We did not just get a painter to paint our house, we got an artist who takes pride in his work. We absolutely recommend Fernando & FAF painting for any painting project you might be considering.

FAF just completed the exterior painting of my mom's house. From our first interaction with Fernando to get our bid, to the last, he was prompt to communicate through the process to ensure work was done to our satisfaction. Mom's house looks wonderful and we really appreciate the quality job Fernando and his crew did.

Fernando did an amazing job for us! He is an action-taker, which I really appreciated. He was very responsive, showed up within hours to give an in-person estimate and started work the next day. All done in one week start-to-finish. His price was in line and competitive with others I received through Thumbtack. He is very experienced, has an eye for detail, helpful suggestions, fun sense of humor, great work ethic, and a top-notch assistant who accompanies him and helps move the project along prepping for him as he efficiently and expertly moves through the process. He kept everything spotlessly clean and we love the outcome. To top it all off, he's fun to have around and he was sweet to our dog. What more can you ask for?! Great work, great price, great guy! We hope to work with Fernando again. Don't hesitate to hire FAF Painting. You'll be glad you chose Fernando to work on your home or business.

Fernando and his team painted our two story house and did an amazing job. He kept us informed of progress and details every step of the way. He answered all my questions and accommodated a few specific requests we had. I’ve already recommended them to neighbor and friends.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I'm fair with my pricing, I always explain to the costumer precisely how much preparation work the project requires, how long it will take and what kind of materials I'm going to use

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    first thing I do is to take a good look at the property, I ask the costumer what he wants, I inspect for any damage on the wood siding for exteriors to see if I need a carpenter, I assess how much preparation work the property needs, in interiors I look at what condition the walls are in, any water stains on ceilings, do I need to paint an entire room with oil base primer if it was a smoker's room, details like that in general, I let the costumer know what i need to do and what materials I'll use, I also let the costumer choose whichever major brand of paint he would like to use since I have accounts with the 3 major brands, sherwin-williams, Miller paint and Benjamin Moore.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I worked for an old painter for at least 10 years, I've worked for several contractors and I also was part of the painters union
