    Don't be fooled by this charlatan like I did!

    Derrick was punctual providing an estimate and offered a very competitive price for the job. Then again - it's easy to bid competitively when you have no intention of doing any work. Derrick cashed my deposit check within 2 days of receiving it and never so much as touched my house with a paint brush. After 5 months of waiting I had to hire another painter to do the job. As soon as I mentioned the word "refund" it was the last time I ever heard from Derrick. What I learned after the fact is that A Picky Painter is not registered with the Secretary of State (e.g. not a real business) which means that there's no way he's insured like he claims to be. Be smarter than I was, and save your money. Let this thief claim another victim!

    A Picky Painter has been our go-to painting service for years. Derek and David are very professional and personable. I feel totally comfortable having them in our home. Their prices are fair and they go above and beyond to ensure our satisfaction with the job. We can heartily recommend them to anyone looking for repairs or painting on their home.

    We have had our entire home exterior painted in the past by "A Picky Painter". Recently, we needed to have the house and porches pressure washed and the trim needed to be refreshed and the porches restained. We also had some boards that had some moisture damage and needed to be replaced. A Picky Painter took care of everything and finished in time for a family reunion we had planned at our home!

    Before he starts painting, he caulks! OMG what competitive painter actually caulks gaps, seams and replaces fascia board without being asked? He used three cases of caulk on our house before the first drop of paint. He showed up on time and called to let me know if he was late or wasn't coming due to bad weather. He finished the job, then gave us three business days to review it for a clean up punch list. He came back, got the punch list knocked out, wow.

    These guys came to me on a recommendation from a neighbor, they did a great job pressure washing repairing and staining my fence. They showed up when they were supposed to, and would definitely recommend them in the future

    Not sure where the bad reviews came from. We had a great experience. They were able to start right away and knocked all of the outside trim and garage doors in three days. Did a great job! No messes and took care of everything. They had come highly recommended and I would recommend them as well.

    I gave A Picky Painter a chance after seeing their signs around my neighborhood and had them come out and give me an estimate. After they gave me a great price on my estimate I googled them and found this site with three negative reviews. Normally I would have called back and cancelled but since they were older reviews I decided to give them a chance and I am very glad I did. They scheduled my job for 9 am this morning and were here here at 8:45 am (I have never had a contractor arrive on time so this was a very big deal). After they arrived we went over exactly what I wanted them to do so there wasn't any confusion before they started the job. They took all my light fixture covers and vents off (instead of painting around them) and gave me tips on how to professionally paint the part of the house that I was doing myself. They respected the contents of my home and did an awesome job cleaning up after themselves. My chandelier only had 3 out of 9 bulbs still working (builder grade light bulbs) so they decided to change them for me (free of charge). I am very happy with the work that they did and I will be referring them to others. I am not sure about the events that led up to everyone else's bad experiences but I do know that most people only review contractors after bad experiences (myself included) but I didn't think that it was fair that these older reviews would potentially make them lose business after doing a great job at my house.

    Like the other reviews stated, they failed to show up when scheduled, never called to say they were running late and then stopped returning our calls. We eventually discovered that their insurance has lapsed and their business license is not valid. We've considered taking them to small claims court to try and recover our deposit but doubt it would help. DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY!!!

    A Paint Job Nightmare!

    Derek and his partner David started a job and never completed it. The job was for them to complete four of my rooms. In addition to them not completing the job, they damaged my furniture and counter tops. They promised that they would pay for the costs of the repairs. Not only did they not pay for them, they stopped returning my calls. These painters are dishonest and untrustworthy! If you value your property and want a job well done, DO NOT DO BUSINEES WITH THEM! I am in the process of contacting the Better Business Bureau. Please use your better judgment and look for more professional painters somewhere else.

    Not Picky Enough

    Still waiting for Derek and David to come finish the job they started in August. They rarely showed up when they promised - no phone call to say why they were running late or needed to reschedule. Then they just quit returning phone calls all together. Their 2-year guarantee means nothing when they won't finish the job they started. The work they did to fix the cracks in the ceiling is already cracking again. Also, they left me with no paint for touch-ups for my dining room and the dining room ceiling, even thouh they kept promising me that they had it and would bring it by the house. Very disappointed in these two guys who seemed so honest.
