Exterior House Painting Review:
“A Whole New House…”
“Legacy Painting Contractors gave us a whole new house! Well, not exactly, but it certainly looks like it! David and his crew (Bob, Eric, and Seven) just spent 3 days giving their full attention to my house and, as a result, it looks amazing!!
My husband and I are first time home painters. We called three companies to give us a bid on painting the exterior of our house. Legacy Painting Contractors was the one company that wasn’t referred by anyone we knew, we just saw them listed in the Angie’s List Catalog and liked the fact that they were local.
I first contacted the company on a Friday. Judy at the office was extremely pleasant and I was surprised when she said David could come out the following Tuesday in the evening to give a quote. I appreciated he was willing to make an appointment in the evening so both my husband and I could be available during the quote, but Judy told me David does his quotes in the evenings because he’s busy painting with his crew during the day. This impressed me immediately.
During the quote, David showed his obvious knowledge and experience of painting and was able to tell us a lot about our house in 30 minutes that we never knew the 11 years we’ve lived in it. Within a few days of that appointment, we received a quote via e-mail.
All of the bids we received were very close in price. Legacy Painting stood out for a few reasons. During the quote, David informed us of the advantages of using Sherwin Williams’ longest lasting Duration paint; our other 2 quotes seemed more interested in using paint that would last only 5-7 years. Though David had obvious experience and gave some opinions in color combination/placement of body, trim, and accent paint, he was more concerned with giving the customer their desired result.
My husband and I also really liked the idea of supporting a local company, but the main reason we chose Legacy was because David is the owner and also one of the painters. David comes out to give you a quote. He hears your ideas and desires for how you want your home to look and your apprehensions about the whole process, and he will be right there with his crew painting your house and addressing all these issues personally.
The only drawback was we had to wait a bit longer before the job could take place. Since it’s only David and his crew of three doing all of the company painting, you have to wait your turn. We figured this was well worth the wait of six weeks.
Five weeks later, we receive a call on a Thursday that they wanted to do the power
washing the following Friday morning. Since we weren’t quite prepared at the time, we were able to push the power washing back to Monday. The crew was there at 7:30 am and done by 9:30 am. They were scheduled to return around noon the next day to begin to prep work. As it turned out, they arrived at 7:00 am sharp for the following three days.
David and his crew – Bob, Eric and Seven – were all very pleasant, courteous, professional, and obvious craftsmen at their work. They were quick, efficient and respectful of our property. Every evening, the area around our house was cleaned up, with their supplies gathered neatly for the next day’s work. When they were done with the painting, they left our property exactly as they found it, only much, much better. Within 3 days, my husband and I were looking at a totally different, gorgeously painted house.
We can’t thank Legacy Painting Contractors enough for such an excellent job well-done!”
