 Satisfaction guarantee. A walk-through is completed at the end of the job to ensure 100% satisfaction. Work is completed exactly as promised in the written proposal.

 Fully insured. We carry a $500,000 liability insurance policy for your protection. In the unlikely event of property damage or injury, you are completely covered and have no liability whatsoever.

 Quality workmanship. With over a decade of painting experience, we have the professional skills needed to get the job done right, using the best materials and equipment.

 No mess. Floors are vacuumed at the end of the job. Trash is removed. Tools and equipment are stored out of your way during after hours.

 Careful preparation. Your home is carefully protected with plastic and drop cloths before any work begins.

 References. See what our past customers have to say about us. Our list of references is available upon request at any time. The list includes customer phone numbers and a brief description of the job.

 Estimates on the spot. We submit a written proposal the same day we meet with you.

 Owner Operated. We do not use subcontractors. We are owned and operated by a seasoned painter who is present on every job from start to finish.

Our Process Is Simple

Our Process Is Simple


Our process is very easy from the beginning to the end of the job. First give us a call to set up a day you'd like us to stop by for a free consultation.

After scheduling your quote, we will do an analysis of the work area by taking measurements and inspecting surfaces for defects in need of repair. We will answer any questions you may have and help you select new colors for your home.  

We never make our customers wait long to get a quote. If you live in our nearby service area (Example: Crystal Lake, Lakewood, Huntley, Woodstock, Lake in the Hills, Cary, Algonquin) painting estimates are usually done the next day. At the time of your estimate, we submit a written proposal to you that details exactly what we'll be painting and the materials that will be used.

Once you accept the proposal, we will schedule a start date for your project. We can usually start a job within one to two weeks, depending on how busy we are.     

Final Walk-Through

We do a final walk-through on the last day of the job to make sure the painting was done to your satisfaction. No jobs are deemed as completed until the final walk-through has been finalized.  

Once the job has been approved, we will proceed to clean up the work area where the painting took place and vacuum the floors. We give you the leftover paint and samples at the end of the job.
