Reviews from the Web

Pearl Painters just finished painting the whole interior of my house. After my initial phone inquiry, Brian arranged a time to come to the house and look at the job. After discussing the project Brian did a very indepth video, documenting exactly what was to be done, what kind of paint we would use, all the details of the job. It made everything VERY clear…there were no surprises. Brian is extremely knowledgable and professional and stands by his work 100%. The crew were all respectful, friendly and nice to have in the house. They did a beautiful job. Brian also urged us to call him should we have any concerns in the future….highly recommend Pearl Painters!read more

From initial contact with Brian to the day we shook hands when work was completed was absolutely professional and a great experience all the way. The. video walk around identifying each and every step of the work to be performed and what we agreed upon was surely an asset to us, since many details were hard to recall occasionally. What an asset.The crew was friendly, professional and patient with our questions. They worked diligently and low key. Each day the job site was cleaned and supplies/ equipment placed in trailer overnight so no mess was left out.The end result is an outstanding success.BTW, the chair of the HOA lives 5 houses down, so he saw the progress and workmanship. Came by and remarked how professional the work was and the completed work was beautiful. Said this is what they strive for in quality and results for the neighborhood.So, nothing but commendations and recommendations for Pearl Painting!read more

Contacted Pearl Painters about our painting needs. Unfortunately, we live outside their service area (WA state) and they are not licensed to work in our state. Brian still took the time to walk me through all my options and gave me resources for DIY. Very thankful for his help and the time he gave me on the phone. If you live in Portland hire this company!read more

The Team from Pearl Painters did a fantastic job! From the initial video walk completely through cleanup. The timing was exactly what was promised and the finished product exceeded expectations. I have worked in design for many years and I seldom see a punch list walk that I don’t find something the team didn’t find on their pre-walk. Great job!! Thanks to Brian and his more

Brian and his team did a great job for us. They painted our house and we were so pleased with their work that when we put up a new structure on the site we had Brain and his team stain that building. They were very professional and did a great job of keeping us informed on the status and progression of the work. Brian did a thorough walkthrough prior to initiating the project and given the detailed nature of the walkthrough there were no surprises after the job more

We hired Pearl Painters after a recommendation from our flooring people. Since we were in the process of putting in new flooring and then painting cabinets, we wanted top notch pros to handle it. Brian was great in his attentiveness to what we wanted and Craig was amazing in overseeing a great crew as well as handling the details of painting from stained cabinets to paint. The finished cabinets are beautiful as well as the rest of the interior paint and woodwork. We love the new look. Craig was especially easy to communicate any concerns and followed up promptly. Highly recommend them!Jana and John Searsread more

I’ve not ever posted a review of a company but everyone at Pearl Painters was great and the job they did on my kitchen cabinets is AMAZING! I got bids from 4 painters and Brian was by far the most thorough, detailed and professional. The video he made as he walked through my kitchen was really impressive. It gave me all the details of the work that would be done and served as the guide to the crew who worked on the project. Noah, Lucas and Craig were great! They arrived promptly, were so easy to communicate with, very thorough and careful as they worked, and made my kitchen look like something out of a magazine. I loved my “blue tape” opportunity – after they’d checked everything, I got to do another once-over and put blue tape on anything I noticed. I went over every inch of my cabinets (I’m a little compulsive) and only found a few places. Craig and Noah took care of the little spots so quickly and everything looked perfect. Brian followed up to see if I was satisfied and asked if they could have done anything better/differently and I told him, “absolutely not!”I must have walked in and out of the kitchen about 10 times on the day it was finished because it’s just so beautiful! I would recommend Pearl Painters without any reservations. Thanks for everything, guys. You ROCK!read more

I hit the jackpot when I found Pearl Painters. This company came highly recommended by a previous client of theirs. I hired them for interior work, and then again for the entire exterior of my house. They’ve been everything I hoped for, and more.Pearl Painters is very professional. Brian, the owner, takes great pride in his business, and has an incredible work ethic. He believes in doing nothing but excellent work, and making sure the client feels the same. It is Pearl Painters’ policy to stay on the property until a walk through is done along with, and passed by, the client.Brian has been in The Biz for 20+ years and it shows. The vast knowledge of his trade is apparent after only a few minutes of talking with him. The website( takes great care in walking the consumer through the process of finding and hiring a quality painter.In addition to the high quality work, Pearl Painters put me in touch with a color consultant to choose exterior color/details, and a contractor to address some dry rot.Pearl Painters is the epitome of what every painting company should be. I would hire them a 3rd time without question, and with great confidence recommend them to anyone else. I am so grateful to have had this really positive more

We used Pearl Painting for some interior work in our home several years ago and were very happy with their work. Out of four bidders this Spring for exterior painting, we chose them because of our prior experience and the input Brian gave us when we were walking around the exterior for the bid. They did everything they said they were going to do, from power washing, sanding, calking, and masking, through painting and clean up. The house looks beautiful and we have gotten a lot of compliments on it. We would not hesitate to use Pearl Painters for any future interior or exterior more

Pearl Painters was the company that we choose to paint the exterior of our house after getting several bids. One of the main reasons was that Brian was very responsive and gave a very detailed bid. He went over everything they were going to do, how long it would take, and answered all of our questions. The job was done this summer and everything they said they would do they did. They showed up when they said they would. They were very careful about not making any more mess than necessary. They did a great job down to the little details. I have recommended them to friends who have used them and they too are pleased. We are very pleased with the outcome and I know that my house loves the new color. I do believe it is now the color it has always wanted to be. 🙂read more

Professional, experienced and no B.S. If you’re looking for the best in town, then you can stop hunting. I’ve never left a review for anything but these guys went above and beyond to make sure we were completely satisfied with the outcome. I was impressed by not only their service but at the care and precision they took with every detail, and even how they addressed all the little things we found during final walkthrough. They took an entire day to address spots, lines, or whatever we found, and cleaned up so well I couldn’t even find a paint chip left over from the prep. You rarely get what you pay for anymore, but with Peal Painters, you will get the best. (Thanks Brian – love the new paint and especially how well the eves came out!)read more

We hired Pearl Painters to remove a bunch of wallpaper in our master bedroom and to paint the walls, trim and crown molding. I knew how difficult and time consuming it was going to be to remove the wallpaper so I wanted to hire someone to do it. I really liked how Brian took a video of the details so that there were no deviations and his crew knew exactly what was to be done. Vince and his crew did a great job. It took longer than they anticipated, but their attention to detail was great. Great guys to work with and you can tell they really care about what they do. They wanted to make sure that we were happy with the final result. While they weren’t the cheapest company to use, I strongly believe that you get what you pay for and the final result more

I have now used Pearl Painters for two major projects – my homes full interior painting 2 years ago, and more recently the entire exterior. Both experiences were fantastic. First and foremost, Brian, (the owner) clearly is a perfectionist. He takes great pride in his company and refuses to cut corners. His crew is top notch and very professional. They show up on time, work hard throughout the day, are friendly and personable and do great work.This was so important to me as I have children at home and it is important to me to feel comfortable with the crew working around my home (and my children) for multiple days. (I also noticed some of the crew working on my recent job were the same guys who did my last job over 2 years ago! It must be a good company to work for if they are keeping the same crew around.)The painting on my exterior has literally transformed my home. Every day when I drive up the street I cant help but smile when I see how beautiful it now looks! I had no idea a fresh coat of paint, done well, could make such a drastic difference for a homes curb appeal!At the end of the project, Brian and Craig were both pointing out imperfections that THEY wanted to fix in order to finish the job to their high standards. These were things I wouldnt have even noticed, but Pearl Painters truly wants it to be perfect when they leave. This is the opposite of so many other companies/contractors I have worked with in the past who sweep things under the rug and hope the customer doesnt notice. There is honestly no cutting corners with these guys – They are top notch and it shows. I had sticker shock inititally when getting quotes for doing these big projects- and I shopped around both times, but the professionalism of Pearl Painters stood out and made me choose them, and honestly, I think it was worth every more

We contracted Pearl Painting a second time this year to complete the larger living spaces and custom bathroom we remodeled. The bathroom walls required spraying of raw wood as did our interior cupboards – and both projects look amazing. The team’s attention to detail on colors separating rooms, and trim work was perfection. The process from initial bid to final walk through, and clean up was very professional. Customer service by the team doing the work was second to none. We were home only part of the time when painting was being completed, and felt very comfortable the entire time. I was also happy that Brian from Pearl recommended Vanessa from ColorMoxie – the colors she selected – again, perfection! We will hire them for a third time to complete our upstairs rooms once our remodel is more

These guys were fantastic and fast! I had never had to have painting done before because it was always just a room here or there, nothing major. But my rental house needed the full treatment after 20 years. Walls and ceilings throughout, two different colors and sheens. I looked through reviews and pictures and decided on these guys and it turned out to be a great decision. Brian helped me through every step and made me feel at ease. He’s a no nonsense guy in that he tells you like it is and doesn’t mess around, which is great because it’s one less thing to worry about. He did what he said he would when he said he would and everything was perfect. His team, headed by Craig, were done in record time and my old house is back to it’s former glory inside! No mess, no fuss, no problems. I highly recommend and will use them again if I have painting needs! Thanks for everything!read more

For the most part, there was fantastic communication, and a great desire and willingness to make our project one that we were extremely happy with.

Looking forward to future projects with Pearl Painters!I first met with Brian Kemnitz 6 years ago and he said at that time my house was in a good shape, with no immediate need for painting. I have known since then I could trust him and his expertise.My busy schedule of an academic forced me to wait with the project longer than intended, but the recent experience of exterior, and some interior, painting by Pearl Painters has only solidified that initial impression… Brian Kemnitz recorded a movie for me, detailing all steps of the project and materials that would be used, with justifications of scientific precision. Then, each step was executed by an eager to work team, led by Craig and Luke, two phenomenal managers and painting experts. Their leadership and interpersonal skills are truly remarkable and, without a doubt, greatly contribute to excellent outcomes of the team and communication. Luke, the onsite manager and lead painter, handled all my questions and additional requests as one could only dream of, giving the much needed peace of mind and reassurance. Notably, he is exceptionally skilled and knowledgeable.To sum up, in a couple of short weeks, Pearl Painters have transformed my house and wooden deck with pergola. As unusual as it might sound, it was hard to see them leave at the conclusion of the project because of the energy and positive vibes they emanate… I am sincerely looking forward to future projects carried out by Pearl more

I LOVE Pearl Painters. Above-and-beyond service. We moved to Portland after living abroad for 3 years. I found Brian while still living overseas. He was so responsive that I made a leap of faith and hired him before meeting him in person. Knowing that we couldn’t meet in person Brian went to my house and made multiple videos to help me understand the paint needs of our house. We had renters and didn’t know the condition of the walls. He made so many videos and sent me so many pictures that I felt like I was in Oregon on the job-site. During the quote process, Brian suggested some other contractors for miscellaneous needs. Between Brian and his network, I was completely taken care of. I was able to visit 1/2 way through the job and was very impressed with the professionalism and cleanliness of his team. Back to the painting… the colors look great. The restoration work is top quality. The attention to detail shows in every room. We had Pearl Painters paint nearly every interior wall of our 1930s home and it looks like we had a mini remodel! In addition to the interior work, Brian recommended a hand-washing of the house to clean up the moss. He thinks our exterior can wait a few years before it gets re-painted. I look forward to working with him again whenever we need more

After getting several bids to have our kitchen cabinets painted, we landed on Pearl Painters. Pearl offered a competitive price, and ultimately it was our initial consultation that gave us the confidence we needed to make the final decision. Compared to other 5-minute (no joke!) bids where measurements were simply taken, Brian spent a good deal of time explaining, in detail, the work that would be done, the amount of time necessary to complete the project, as well as setting clear expectations for his team as well as for us, the customer. Everything was detailed in a clearly written contract and the project started on time. The crew (Craig, Vince, Cody and Luke) was highly professional, courteous and took great care to respect and maintain our home. During the project, Vince always provided progress updates at the end of (and even during) each day so we always knew the current status. The crew informed us of all issues as they came up and consulted with us on the necessary solutions. The overall quality of the job was astounding and our kitchen looks brand new–we were thoroughly impressed!!! Our home was left in great condition, with no damage/paint splatters, etc. Overall, we couldn’t be more pleased with the final result and would not hesitate to recommend Pearl to others in the future. We’re planning to have the exterior of our home painted later this year and based on this experience, there’s no question about going with anyone more

Our experience with Pearl Painters was fantastic, from the beginning of the process until the end. Communication was easy throughout. Brian was easy to get ahold of and he returned calls and emails in a timely fashion. He was very detailed with the quote he gave and was very thorough in making sure we understood the entire process and every aspect of what was being done. Scheduling our painting was easy and they held to their original time frame commitment. When the painters arrived they were very personable, polite and hard working. We were VERY pleased with their work ethic and the results of their hard more

The whole house was painted and garage just after we moved in. The crew did their job quickly and efficiently. Brian did a walk thru and saw and pointed out things that no one else did. I was very satisfied with the whole more

Pearl Painters did an amazing job!It all started with a quote for the services to be provided, which did not change. We added a few changes and the updated fees were in line with the request and accurate. Pearl Painters were more expensive than other bids but they provide a premium service so you get what you pay for.Brian was extremely professional, helpful, and detail oriented. He was always very clear with explanations and setting our expectations from the beginning. The walk-through he had with my wife and our general contractor was well run and he established a high level of trust and credibility right away. He is organized and runs a tight ship which was refreshing after a couple of poor experiences with other subcontractors during our project.Brian explained the differences in paint options and helped us determine the right combination of paint and sheen, as well as colors. This was extremely helpful in getting the right selection for the look we were going for.Brian’s team started on time based on the schedule we locked down from the beginning. We usually had a team of 2 or 3 people at the house priming, painting, and various other activities. The team was very careful inside the house and cleaned up after they were done extremely well. Pearl Painters were essentially the last subcontractor and project in our 14 month remodel and they helped us finish in style.The house looks terrific and their attention to detail and quality performance delivered for us. Thank you Brian and the rest of the team!read more

These people provide OUTSTANDING service. We live in Montana, and when my husband’s family member died unexpectedly in the Portland area, we had to get the residence ready to put up for sale. From the first phone call, to the final walk through, the owner of this business, Brian, did his absolute best to make sure that the job was done, perfectly, and very professionally. This man knows what it is to go above and beyond. He did a video walk through, so that we could see from our home, in Montana, what needed to be done, then after the job was complete, did another video walk through, so that we could see the final results. He had his crew take down the old draperies and hardware, and fill in and texture the existing holes. He even went outside with his video camera to show us what the new roof looked like, which the roofer, who had done the job had not even offered to do. The interior of the residence looks fantastic thanks to the wonderful job that Brian and his crew did. THANK YOU, Pearl Painters, I give you my HIGHEST recommendation!read more

Pearl Painters the Best! 5 Stars All the Way!Pearl Painters did an ‘Outstanding’ job on the exterior paint of my 19 year old home in August. My house was a real challenge. 6 gables, all with facias almost to bare wood. Pearl was the only bid out of the 6 I got that recommended completely sanding them to bare wood, used a oil base primer and then followed that with 2 coats of latex semi gloss color coat. The house is 2500 sq. ft. and 3 stories to the top of the roof. 4 1/2 inch cedar siding 2 coats sprayed second coat back rolled. I had a pergola as well, very time consuming had to be done all by hand. They had to use a tether from two different roof locations. It was most interesting to watch. The entire Team was so professional, built great rapport and showed great work ethic, Brian, Craig, Caleb, John, Franklin and Ian You Are The Best! Pearl was not the lowest bid but most certainly the ‘Best Value’ for my money. You get what you pay for. The most important of any paint project is the prep! Their prep and masking was over the top, off the hook, outta bounds as Guy Fieri says. I am so Thrilled with the results. My neighbors are still oohing and aahing over the results. Thank you again Pearl!read more

The house is 2500 sq. ft. and 3 stories to the top of the roof. They had to use a tether from two different roof locations.Their crew was very professional, timely every morning at 7 am during the 8 day job. Caleb was the on site manager along with his crew of John, Franklin and Ian. Craig was the lead manager, and let me tell you, he is a professional craftsman. I learned so much from him. Owner Brian has an ‘Awesome Team’. When Brian completed the estimate he spent over an hour with me as we walked around the house looking at all the challenges. He recommended sanding the facias to bare wood and using oil base primer. He sure knows his profession. Brian showed me this special sander and attachments. Very unique. John was tethered from the roof sanding the 4 front gable facias with this sander that has a 30 foot plus hose that sucks the debris into a holding tank. It was awesome to watch. No ordinary painting company has this sort of equipment. One more thing, Brian videos the estimate and narrates what he is bidding. You get a copy sent to you along with the written contract. His crew reviews the video prior to beginning the job. Most impressive. Brian is a very, very detailed person. The folks at Miller paint say the same.Pearl was not the lowest bid but most certainly the ‘Best Value’ for my money. You get what you pay for. The most important of any paint project is the prep! Their prep and masking was over the top, off the hook, outta bounds as Guy Fieri says. I am so Thrilled with the results. My neighbors are still oohing and aahing over the results.They used Miller paint Acrilite satin on the body, Acrilite semi gloss on the trim and pergola. Body was sprayed two coats with the second coat back rolled. My siding is 4.5 inch cedar. After the oil base primer the trim was followed by two coats by hand roller and brush. The clean up was excellent. Craig came out the last day to complete the walk around and spent a lot of time cleaning up debris from all the paint flakes, I was very impressed with that.When I visited Brian’s home to sign the contract he showed me the sanding equipment. I also got to see an example of his interior work in his home. Faux painting. It blew me away.Pearl Painters the Best!read more

Pearl Painters did a great job. They were not the cheapest of companies we received quotes from, but I was confident Brian and his team could get the job done. We had our downstairs walls painted. In the powder room the painters sprayed the paint the beadboard and the door for a more even coat. Then painted the walls. Coverage was great and the result was better than expected. I would recommend, and have recommended Pearl Painters to more

Pearl Painters recently transformed our home in Tigard with an incredible paint job. First, there’s the very thorough video that Brian sends, documenting all the work that needs to be done so all parties are on the same page. Then there’s Brian and the crew’s attention to little details. For example, we had a request about our brand new roof that the crew not only respected, but remembered each and every day. Then there was the attention to pressure washing detail; I never knew how dirty our house was until it got pressure washed correctly! Then there was the awesome crew: Craig and Caleb were on site every day and kept us apprised of developments and daily progress. They treated our house with respect (not all contractors do this!); they also took care to clean up at the end of every day and at the end of the project.In short, there was transparency and through attention to detail throughout the course of this project. I highly recommend Pearl Painters to anybody looking for the highest quality painting!read more

Best painting contractor I have ever hired! Actually, may be the best contractor company I have ever hired in any capacity. Everything about the process exceeded our expectations. Extremely professional. High attention to detail and quality. The proposal/bid process was extremely thorough and well documented. Brian was also very helpful in ensuring we picked colors that not only worked for our house, but with our neighborhood. When it was time to paint, the crew showed up on time, worked hard and stayed in communication with us as needed. They have a strong work ethic and great attitude. I would recommend them without hesitation, and I would definitely hire them more

From working with Brian on the initial visit to having Craig and his crew paint our house was a pleasure. Having any project done by a contractor causes a little apprehension for a homeowner, but working with Pearl Painters was easy. I appreciated the good communication from start to finish. Any problem or question I had was addressed immediately. I really appreciate the quality of their work and would not hesitate to hire them more

These are our painters for life. They show up. Work hard all day. Clean up and go home. Repeat until done. Brian has great aesthetic sense and can be very helpful. The faux finish they did truly made a difference. Everything in our house has been painted by them at one time or another. I can’t think of a better recommendation then that. Always consistently more

I hired Pearl Painters to paint the exterior of our home. I received quotes from four different painters and Brian was the only one that brought up the failing siding on the SW side of our house. The other three companies would have just painted over the trouble spots and we would have had to repaint in a few years once the siding had failed completely. Pearl takes a great deal of pride in the quality of their work and it shows. I would definitely hire them more

Pearl Painters crew painted our complete home interior, as well as, the garage interior over 6 days in April 2016. From the initial estimate walk through that included video documentation to choosing paint color and type, Brian was knowledgeable, patient and professional. I truly appreciated his attention to detail and was confident that we had hired the right company. Craig and his crew were always punctual, friendly, polite and tidy. We found only one teensy tiny area that needed a touch up in 13+ rooms/areas during the final walk through. My husband and I are extremely pleased with the quality of the job and the experience in working with Pearl more

I was impressed upfront with the level of professionalism and knowledge from Brian – he obviously knows this business. Then during the job, the communication was outstanding – the team providing daily updates on the progress. The final job turned out amazing and the quality of work was great. I fully recommend Pearl Painters for any paint job you may more

My HOA project list this year included fence staining so I asked for recommendations from friends and our community manager. Since this was HOA business, I wanted to ensure I did my due diligence so I requested additional project estimates for our Board to review. After reviewing the estimates and sharing my RFP experiences with the Board I recommended Pearl Painters. Brian was very thorough walking the property with me to ensure nothing was overlooked and I felt confident that his estimate was accurate – and it was. I was also very impressed with Luke and his crew! They were great dealing with our small community and the challenges multiple owners can present and it was nice to hear the positive feedback from fellow home owners pleased with the results!read more

Wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again. Brian’s quoting process blew us away–he actually documents the job by video and archives it for everyone so both parties are on the same page. We had a huge job – the entire first floor of our home with walls, ceilings, and loads of trim/moulding. They knocked it out in four days and you can really tell it was done by pros. So happy we hired Pearl more

Brian, the whole process went very well. Everything happened on schedule and as you outlined. No surprises except the weather and that I found a contractor who did exactly as promised. Your team was very patient and did not try and rush through the poor drying conditions.They worked with me on all of my suggestions and requests and on some options I had with the windows. The job looks great. They cleaned up and left everything very nice.Feel free to use me as a reference.thanksdonread more

My home is modest — a “condo alternative” — but from the start, Brian at Pearl Painters made it clear that my job mattered. Brian understood the challenges of a home with T1-11 and cedar siding on a steep, moist, wooded site. He specified what the painters would do and how they’d do it; the crew followed through. The result: my house never looked better. I was comfortable with the crew and happy with their daily progress. The only surprise has been how good the result looks. I wish I had done this sooner. Next up: my home’s interior. I’ll hire Pearl Painters for that project, more

Interior Paint competed 2014/Exterior Painting (review below) was in 2012Interior:Two years earlier we had Pearl Painters update our home with new paint and a brand new look. It was an understatement to say we were happy with the results. It was time for a facelift on the interior and we didn’t even think twice about getting other bids….we just called Brian at Pearl Painting and asked how soon he could meet with us to get the work scheduled.My wife and I wanted a specific look to enhance the quality and presentation of the interior of our home. It goes without saying that quality takes time and we knew that Pearl Painters are willing to invest the time necessary to meet our expectations and they do not compromise when it comes to quality.Brian and I walked through each individual room to review the wood work and what was necessary to give us the look we described. He recommended that the trim be sprayed vs. hand painted to achieve the results desired. Brian pointed out several areas that needed the attention of a professional dry waller and made a recommendation on a contractor that we hired to get the interior issues addressed and ready for painting. They were meticulous with masking off the necessary areas of our home and invested a great deal of care to ensure the home was protected prior to the spraying that was to be done. The results are amazing. Our home looks better than ever and we couldn’t be happier.Exterior competed 2012:After making the decision to have our house painted we invested the time to interview four different painting contractors. It became very clear, very quickly that there was a great disparity from one company to another. With this being an investment in protecting our home we wanted to make sure we chose wisely. Bid costs varied greatly but our concern was with quality. We were not looking for the cheapest price but the best value for our money. We had one contractor who gave us a bid within 15 minutes of his arrival compared to Brian at Pearl Painting who invested a great deal of time in review of what we wanted done as well as the technical challenge our house would be as we are on a steep slope. After these four different interviews we knew who we wanted to paint our house it was Pearl Painters.Pearl was not the cheapest and in fact was the highest of the four bids. We initially thought we didn’t want to afford Pearl Painters, but we are very glad we discussed this with Brian! He provided questions we should ask him and the other bidders that never occurred to us. He provided an easy to understand approach that made us realize just how uninformed we were regarding what we perceived as simple. With an expense of this size and the everyday visual of its nature, we did not want to be disappointed or endure the, “I wish we would have known…” The crew of Pearl Painters was meticulous and focused on quality ….not just getting done quickly and then moving on to the next job. They were professional and their care and attention to detail was phenomenal. They made suggestions and brought situations to our attention we would not have considered on our own. Brian listened to our color choices and provided ideas to enhance our vision and the end result was fantastic! Even while the work was going on, people driving by stopped to take pictures and/or tell us how wonderful it was turning out. Our neighbors have all commented on the look and quality of work. It has been three weeks since our home has been painted and not a day goes by that we don’t comment on how beautiful it turned out. We keep touching the paint and “wowing” over the richness and depth. We couldn’t be happier and not once have we said, “I wish they would have…” I would invite anyone to stop by and make your own comparison. We are truly satisfied customers of Pearl Painting.

I have had the pleasure of working with Brian @ Pearl Painters on three of our most recent projects, and I know I have found my preferred vendor for all of our clients’ painting needs. Brian is a pro’s pro; highly knowledgeable, customer-centric and focused on excellent results. He is personally involved from the beginning of each project, checking existing conditions, making recommendations and educating our clients; in short, putting thorough effort into the planning stage to ensure a superior quality paint job. And the results are truly first rate. His field technicians are superb in their craftsmanship, with crisp lines between walls and ceilings and immaculate trim work. They are also on time, clean and courteous… such a pleasure to have on our jobs. I highly recommend Pearl Painters!- Kathie Maughan Francis, PrincipalMaughan Design & Remodelread more
