We tried the ??-cote company that has all the great big ads all over town and had to stop work due to job site mismanagement. There was nothing but frustration with all the quality defects, sloppiness and bad attitudes. So the research began and we saw all the great reviews on Armor Tek, especially for their over-all value. What a difference, this is the quality of work as in all the designer magazines. Worth every penny. Do yourself a favor and hire these guys or at least stick to a truly quality-oriented painter. We did an interesting plaster coating on our fire place--Great Deal! Only complaint is that they left a little mess/dust during part of the project but did a decent job of clean-up at the end. Very happy overall!

Had Armor Tek redo our show room. They came up with a commercial type texture that has a colorant in it for the walls--makes them bulletproof and easy to clean; texture looks nice, too. They also did several modellos (stencil) designs on the epoxy garage floor and a logo for the reception area. Owner really knows the technical in's and outs of the coating business and gave us great advice. Highly recommend them! Having them come back to line stripe our parking lots.

I highly recommend Armor Tek if you need your house painted. The price is right, the quality of work is superior and the crew is fantastic. They are very neat and cleaned up the job site. My house looks wonderful. TC is terrific to work with and made the whole process very easy. Start to finish was only one week. Give them a call!

I had my whole house painted by Armor- Teck, they did an amazing job, and they stayed on track and on budget. The owner is very knowledgeable with color coordination. I would strongly recommend them. My husband and I could not be happier with the services. Thanks.

The crew was very conscientious regarding clean up and noise. Even the neighbors have commented on how quietly and quickly your crew painted our Hacienda-stucco home. They were not the cheapest bid but were a known quantity--our next door neighbors had their house painted by Armor Tek several years ago and it is holding up very well. They highly recommended them and we will do the same.

Hired Armor-Tek to repaint our garage door and do some interior painting. The garage door posed a problem - the paint did not bond well but Armor-Tek kept at it until they got it right. Their workers were neat, cleaned up and moved furniture carefully. Their price point was in the middle. Felt the management was very responsive to all requests. I would gladly recommend them.

I hired the people at Armor-Tek Coatings to get my house ready to sell. The house was in dire need of repairs, cleaning, and painting: both indoors and outdoors. The owner was very prompt at coming to house to do a detailed inspection and provided me with a quote within my budget. The work was completed very quickly and the house was ready to show. They repaired stuccu, interior cracks, finished the ceilings, cleaned and painted the entire inside of the house. They also replaced a couple of damaged doorknobs and took away all of the unwanted furniture in the house and cleaned the windows. After steam cleaning the exterior the house and driveway looked much more appealing. I highly recommend them because of their fast, courteous, and professional work.

Armor Tek textured & painted two bedrooms for me on very short notice. Timing was critical but they worked out the scheduling to make my life easy, and they showed up exactly as scheduled. But what made me the happiest was how well they prepared before painting began, and how well they cleaned up afterwards. Great prep makes for a great paint job, which is what I got. And no headaches afterwards. Love these guys! Would definitely hire them again.

I always get 3 bids on my projects. Pricewise, how I assess value first, they were in the middle. We had a relatively small project and were glad they came out to review it on short notice. The estimator was punctual and polite, even offered to take off her shoes--what a relief that someone actually cares. The others we interviewed had such a blue collar mentality and really didn't seem to be very sensitive to our needs, or understand them well. John and I decided on the spot to get going with this outfit and signed with them on the spot. The men they sent over were as equally impressive with their demeanor and talent. Will use again and recommend!

Armor-Tek did some major renovation in my mother's home (taking down wallpaper, wallboard repair, retexturing walls and ceilings, painting). The crew was there on time everyday until the job was completed. If I wanted something touched up they were right there until I was completely satisfied. I recommend Armor-Tek to work with you on your home renovations.

I have never worked with a Contractor who took such care and concern with his project management. The president, TC, was involved in every step of our two patio waterproofing projects at our home. We had a disaster on our hands as the previous installation was extremely leaky and caused major rot damage. TC responded to all our questions and concerns quickly and efficiently. I wish all contractors could be as professional as he was to my family. The finished product is so beautiful; our home is a show piece. My neighbors continually comment how nice a job was done. I am proud to say it was done by Armor Tek, as I hand out his phone number over and over. A little on the pricey side but worth it. I personally will use him for all my future Painting and waterproofing needs.

After interviewing several different companies, we chose Armor Tec because of their straight-forward approach to selling the job. We had two other companies come out and they kept demanding hours of our time and put on "time share selling tactics" which we really resented. Armor Tec's salesman, TC, did a terrific job at laying out several painting and coating options and explained the pros and cons of each. They were substantially less on the Tex-cote "never paint again" coating than the others as well. The workers were very professional and enjoyable to have around. The job turned out great! Thanks TC and Armor Tec!!

Armor Tek really amazed me by their speed of completion along with keeping the quality in check...we were home and watched the whole time. They did a full prime coat and 2 top coats of a "never paint again" coating. We are so pleased not to have to worry about maintenance because we live right on the beach and the salt air has caused us to repaint every 5 years or so. They replaced a couple of ugly termited boards and it now looks like new!! Thanks and will have back to do the interior and garage floor.

We ended up chosing Armor Tek to refurbish our garage. The owner helped us come up with a color scheme that was suitable to our entertainment needs (we shoot pool, cook and have parties in there). After some deliberation, we went with some interesting metallics for the walls and an art deco design for the epoxy floor. Thank you for classing up our home! Highly recommend!
