Could not ask for more in hiring a painting company

Could not ask for more in hiring a painter.  They were on time, clean, courteous, and did a fantastic job.  When they said they would hand brush, they did.  There was no standing around wasting time.  When they arrived, they started working.  This lines were clean for edging, and the coverage was smooth and consistent on our siding, which was a challenge.  We highly recommend Ray Orist and his crew!

The work provided went above and beyond

They were great and were able to squeeze us in during the busy part of the year before the cold weather started.  They made repeated visits (2 coats entire house) to make sure it was completed.  The weather caused some delays, but they were persistent and made sure it was completed on time.  They went above and beyond and included the garage as well and a shed and some posts to make sure everything looked great.  They definitely take pride in their work.  The work provided went above and beyond that which was quoted on the estimate.  Everything looks great!!!

Attention to detail was great

I originally wanted one-coat of paint and after our home was scraped, R&J Painting recommended that a paint stain be used because of the excess paint peel.  After the first coat, I felt a second was necessary.  R&J Painting’s attention to detail was high and clean up was good.

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+++

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.
