Most Professional, Friendly and Detailed Painters

Over the years we have had experiences with several painters. Ray and his team are, by far, are the most professional, friendly and detailed painters we have EVER worked with. When I called him and left a message that we would like a quote, he responded and came to see the scope of work on the same day! By the end of the day we had a reasonable quote and the timeframe to start and complete the work. His team was always on time and we are extremely impressed with their work. They always cleaned up and organized their tools, as well as moving furniture in and out of position. Ray is on the job daily, either working himself or stopping by the check on his people. We just can’t say enough about how happy we are with Ray and his team! Highly recommend them!

Repeat Customer

This is the second time I’ve hired Ray Orist & his R&J Painting Team to paint my home. As was my experience with the first project (in 2010), R&J did an excellent job! Ray hires a dedicated team of painters.They were always prompt on the job and the whole team was very courteous. Their workmanship and service exceeded our expectations! They do a professional job and I would highly recommend them to anyone that wants a first class quality paint job! Ray and team, very nice work! Thank you!

Deck Staining

We had R&J stain/paint (we used a solid color stain, so it is more like a paint) our deck twice in the past 10 years. Both times it turned out great. The most recent time it had some bubbling issues due to moisture from under our deck. We have it closed of for esthetics so there is really no airflow. Ray came back and fixed everything as he stands behind his work. A+++

Exterior Residential Painting

Owner Ray was pleasant, friendly and professional when I went through the quotation process with him; it helped him in getting my order within a couple of days. The team was extremely punctual, pleasant, accommodating and caring. They did whatever I asked them to do with a smile. They also did some minor work which was missed and not part of the contract and no additional cost. My experience with Ray and his team has been pleasant and I will not hesitate to give them another opportunity when the need comes up again. Thank you R&J Painting.

Exterior Painting and Power Washing

We hired R & J Painting to do exterior work on our house. They did a fantastic power washing job to clean the stucco. We also had them paint the garage and front doors, and all the trim work. It turned out great. Ray has an eye for detail and even helped in coordinating the colors. At the end of the day the site was left pristine and organized. In addition to the excellence of the service that they provided, their prices were also competitive and better than the other companies doing business in the same field. For quality workmanship, I am happy to recommend R & J Painting. They are true professionals who take pride in their work. It was a pleasure and great experience working with Ray and his crew. I know we will call upon them again in the future.

R&J Painting deserves more than 5 Stars

I wish that there were more stars to award because R & J deserves more than five. From the moment that Ray came in to give us an estimate, he was showing us how to fix things that we didn’t even really know were an issue–but not in an up-sell sort of way. He was truly concerned about getting the job done correctly We challenged them with a weird 70s split-level foyer area that was like an intricate puzzle of angles and dark spaces. We followed up with a water damaged bathroom that normally houses a 16-year-old who is not big on the whole cleaning thing. Just like on every single HGTV reno show that you have ever seen, there was more damage in the bathroom than they were expecting, but they came up with a solution on the spot and fixed it in a way that should keep the damage from happening again. Every single day, the crew was on time and ready to go.

They were polite, hard-working, and they cleaned up every tiny piece of dust that they might have made. Every day when they left, they wa…

Outstanding Work

To R&J Painting,
I want to thank you for the “Outstanding” work you and your crew did while painting our house. They were professional, friendly, caring and especially for taking care of some really bad spots I had on my house getting it ready for painting.
I can not express enough thanks for the hard work your crew did to repair and paint my house. The workmanship speaks volumes for you and your company even to the point of neatly stacking the ladders and equipment “each day” upon going home.
I would like to HIGHLY RECOMMEND your company and crew for anyone looking for a job well done and done “RIGHT” …
My congratulations and appreciation for you and your entire crew.

Speedy and Tidy

The R&J Painting team is courteous, speedy and tidy. They did a great job on a few walls in my home that had been wallpapered with no sizing. They do excellent work and I would recommend them to anyone.
