Our paint provider of choice is Sherwin Williams. We buy most of our paints and supplies at their stores and get excellent contractor discounts for our customers. Benjamin Moore makes great products as well, and we use their paint too, but their prices are generally higher and their store locations are not as convenient.

" Very, very professional and kept the house clean and neat during the process. Once they were finished, the house was clean and the paint job was amazing.

I would absolutely recommend Matt and anyone from his team at Advantage Painting Services. Great job, great price and flexible around my tight timeline."

"Matt did a fantastic job painting the whole interior of our home. He always came on time and did a VERY neat job. He used paint that when dry, had no odor at all!

He was very trustworthy and we felt very secure leaving him in our home if we had to leave for appointments. His prices are fair and honest with no hidden charges or surprises on the final bill. You will be very satisified if you choose him for your painting jobs!
