Joe is a very nice guy, but he overpromised, overcharged, and seriously underdelivered. He was the most expensive option, but I figured he would do a good job. When he came out to the house, he said he would fix some issues with the walls and a previous paint job...
My house was a 70s build, and almost completely wallpapered with a lot of the wallpaper painted over, which definitely didn’t help in removing it all! I also had a slightly different problem with removing wallpaper – the previous owners had used vinyl wallpaper, which when steamed stretched a lot rather than scraping off easily. It was easier to just score and scrape or peel off the paper dry, and later steam off any papery bits that were left on the wall. .

To remove any loose paint from a smooth stucco surface, use a scraper as discussed above. If the surface is textured, remove loose paint with a wire brush. Then, regardless of whether the surface is smooth or textured, give the stucco surface some “tooth” for new paint to grip by “scratching” it with a wire brush.

Kelly Brothers did an incredible job with our interior paint job as well as stripping and staining some large indoor wood beams. The wood beams is something that other painters would not even attempt to do and Kelly Brothers did it really well. Their prices were better than the competition and we are very happy with the results.
I had my condo painted by Kelly Brothers. Justo and his crew Eqrue and Jesus. Took them 5 day's painting everything. All closets, doors, trim and baseboards. They painted two coats on all ceiling and walls. Justo and his crew did a excellent job & I would recommend them to anyone. I walked in several times without them noticing and they took their time being very careful while painting. Pleasant and friendly. No I didn't know anyone in this company before I had it painted. The estimaent seemed a little high but I always believe you get what you pay for and it was well worth it. They left me three gallons of paint one for each color I had painted. Thanks again Justo, Eqrue and Jesus.
