Normally, I do all the painting in my home--me and family and friends when possible. The main reason being that I balk at the house painting prices charged by professional painters. I don't blame them; I would charge a small fortune to paint someone's house. Painting is difficult work, especially the detail work.

Older homes often have surfaces that newer homes don’t. Plaster walls, exposed brick, wood paneling and exterior architectural blocks are common in older homes. Using the right paint and tools on these surfaces (plus the right paint and tools for the room itself) is important to ensure the longevity of the project.
The prep work is meticulous, they carefully protect surfaces not meant to be painted, including my beautiful Cordyline plants that touch the wall. They even taped plastic over my cement floor backyard. The quality of the work is great, I don't see any flaws in the paint job, and the paint is quick drying with no overwhelming paint smell. They fixed any minor flaws with the surfaces, applying patches and re-stuccoing as needed. My house looks new again!

They completed the job from start to finish on time and it looks beautiful!

The crew on site was very professional and the clean up at the end was awesome! I highly recommend Kelly Brothers Painting!
