Praise for R&J Painting…

  • 5 star review  Nice job! Painted trim on house. Completed in 2 days. Professional and polite painters. Paid exactly what Ray said it would cost in estimate. Definitely recommend them. Thank you.

    thumb John LaMonte
  • 5 star review  The crew was on time and did a great job painting. The interior looks great and we would highly recommend R & J Painting. Thanks!

    thumb Dianne Bartos
  • 5 star review  From the start, it was a pleasurable experience setting up an appointment for our estimate. Ray came over and spent a lot of time with us listening to our needs for our new home. He was able to quickly get us on the books with his carpentry and painting crew. We were incredibly impressed with the workmanship, professionalism, and pride each and every crew member showed. Our house looks absolutely amazing... Quite a transformation.

    thumb Lisa Bingham-Shepherd
  • 5 star review  Selecting R & J Painting for our inside home painting project was a no-brainer. Ray and his office team (Tonya) were extremely responsive and professional to deal with throughout the process, which is especially appreciated during this unfortunate pandemic environment. The circumstances did not keep them from operating at the highest of level of customer service. Paul and his crew knocked our project out faster than anticipated and even provided us with some extra services (patching holes in the cabinet and removed a lighting fixture and patched the ceiling). Also of note- If you choose paint from Sherwin Williams, the color consultant that Ray connected us with, Linda, saved us from making a big mistake color -wise and recommended colors and combos that were spot on for what we wanted. We'll definitely be going back to R & J when it's time to paint our exterior.

  • 5 star review  I can't say enough about Ray & his team! From start to finish, they were professional & personable! Between Ray & Tonya (in the office) the communication about work to be performed, cost, & the painting schedule were laid out very clearly. The estimate was detailed & did not vary at all from the final cost. Dan, Paul, & the other 2 gentleman did the most amazing job painting 3 bedrooms, a walk-in closet, repair of a basement wall, & our door out to the garage. They painted ceilings, all trim/doors. & walls in the bedrooms & the rooms look brand new! The guys were detaill oriented & I appreciate how well they covered the floors, furniture, & always wore booties to keep our carpet & floors clean. We were so pleased with their work, we even added the painting of a mudroom area the last day! To say I'm thrilled is an understatement & I'm about as picky as they come! We are already planning for them to come back after a bathroom remodel in the fall! Thanks to everyone at R&J for a job that exceeded expectation!

    thumb Allison Sandor
  • 5 star review  Very satisfied with the paint job Ray's crew did! Ray and his guys are very professional and did a stellar job patching, sanding, scraping and painting. The crew also carefully cleaned up after themselves each day when they were done. I should also mention that they stay in contact so that we knew when the crew would be doing the job. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to get painting work done.

    thumb Debbie Briggs
  • 5 star review  The basement floor of our older home wasn't an easy area to paint, but Paul and Fernando did a great job. Paul kept us well-informed. Their clean up was thorough. We would recommend R&J painting!

    thumb Caryn McAndrews
  • 5 star review  The entire experience of working with R&J Painting was excellent. We had read such great reviews we made an appointment for Ray to come out to bid the job. He impressed us so much with his professionalism and how he treated us, we went no further and couldn't be more pleased. He assured us once the job was started, it would be finished, and it was! The crew leader Paul was fantastic with communicating all aspects of the job and clarifying issues when needed. His team, to mention a few, Dan (wonderful & kind worker), Fernando (who came on a Saturday to help Brian the carpenter), Brandon (who fixed a ceiling crack perfectly), Jason and all the others, were respectful of this upheaval in our lives, left an immaculately clean work site AND did a beautiful job of painting. We highly recommend this company and crew.

    thumb Jodi McPhillips
  • 5 star review  Ray and his crew at R&J Painting did a fantastic job painting our place. Very professional and courteous. He and his crew were always responsive and were there when they said they would be. The painting itself was excellent. They did the painting quickly and efficiently and cleaned up when they were done so we wouldn't have known they were there. In all, great company. Would use again and would refer to anyone who needs a quality painting company.

    thumb Ryon Yemm
  • 5 star review  The entire team at R&J Painting were fantastic to work with. From Tonya’s punctual and helpful assistance providing information & scheduling to Ray’s prompt visits and estimating to Paul, Jason & Dan doing an amazing job on the exterior of our home, we couldn’t be more pleased. R&J Painting is not just highly recommended but, really a rare find where the whole experience truly exceeds expectations.
