Testimonials

As new homeowners, we were overwhelmed with the many possibilities for making our new house our forever home. Hence, we ended up revising the scope of work several times, but Ray handled each change with grace, patience, and very fair estimates. Ray’s skill, attention to detail, and pride in his work utterly transformed our home from “Pretty nice” to “Wonderful!” Beyond all of this? Ray inspired our trust, which is as important — if not, more so — than the excellence with which he completed his work. We’re looking forward to his return in this summer when he will apply some of his painterly magic to the exterior of our home.

I am a commercial property manager who uses R&J Painting out of Crystal Lake Illinois exclusively. My clients have been more than impressed after every job that R&J Painting has completed. The workmanship, timeliness and professionalism is always on target. I am lucky to have found such a great company that I can trust to bid for me and feel so assured knowing that the completed job will surpass the owners expectations!

To sum it up, amazing. They pressure washed the house. Repaired where needed. Treated the wood around the roof line and applied a sealer. Work was efficient, and clean!

We have used Ray with R&J Painting twice in the past for painting services. Both times we were very satisfied with the price and the work he and his crew did. Much attention was paid to detail and our house looks better than when it was built. I highly recommend R&J Painting and will not think twice about using them again.

These guys are AWESOME!!!! Ray came out and gave us a quote a couple of months back that was more than reasonable for the size of our home. I had some scheduling difficulties and Ray worked with me, after having to move my paint date, with ease. His crew showed up Monday, jumped right in and wrapped it all up beautifully! This has been the easiest paint job, EVER! Do yourself a favor and use these guys!

I am writing this letter as a recommendation for R&J Painting. I was most pleased with the professional manner exhibited by Ray when he quoted the job I had requested. Ray responded promptly and supplied me with a written quote that itemized all supplies and the total amount for the job.  I was impressed by the attention to detail he exhibited as he began the job-this was no small job-he was painting the outside of our summer house.  This house has individual shingles which required much prep work before applying the paint…..and the old color was brown being painted yellow!  Ray was very careful and neat.  He carefully manipulated around the plantings at the foundation of the house.  Ray completed this job in a timely manner and it is beautiful…..so beautiful that I toll pictures to send to family members that remembered the old brown house-what an improvement, thanks to Ray. I highly recommend Ray for any painting job!

Ray Orist recently painted the interior of my home. He did an excellent job. He is meticulous in his work. His clean-up job was beyond reproach. I believe his prices are more than fair. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.  In fact, my neighbors were impressed with his work, they hired him to paint the interior of their home. I do not believe you could hire anyone better than Mr. Orist.

On a referral from a co-worker I had R&J Painting come to my home. Ray came over and gave me a quote. He was very patient and efficient. Ray then came over and did a wonderful job.  He painted the upstairs bedroom, bathroom, stairway and downstairs family room.  Everything was done in a timely fashion, things were left cleaned up and organized at the end of the day Ray did a beautiful job. R&J Painting is a very friendly and professional service.  I would recommend them to everyone.
