The exterior of my wife’s and my 1950s house sorely needed painting because the last paint job was over fifteen years ago.  Now, our purpose was not to do a rush paint job (as often happens when a house is put up for sale) but to revitalize and restore.  So we wanted a company that would give us a reasonable price but also a super quality job that would last.  Based on reviews and recommendations from friends, I got estimates from six firms, all of them licensed.  We chose Gruber Painting and our experience was it was “as good as it gets.”

Joel Gruber is the proprietor, and he strikes us as knowledgeable, easy to work with, and really interested in customer satisfaction.  He impressed us both when giving the estimate and during the job. 1) More than some estimators, he knew a whole lot about paint and preparation, and he made excellent recommendations to insure a quality job. 2) He didn’t skimp, giving us an estimate that included top quality paints, caulking, etc., the proper number of coats, and even giving extra attention to problem areas that he identified. 3) His estimate was fair and reasonable – not the lowest but also not the highest. 4) Several paint company proprietors came out, but had we gone with them, we would have seen mostly a crew – “Where’s Macavity?”  Joel, though, was personally on the job with professional painters (not just helpers) who knew what they are doing. 5) We found him to be agreeable to minor changes and improvements as we got into the job. 6) He and his crew were respectful of our property and did a careful job (trim lines were straight, etc).

Beauty is more than a coat of paint deep – our house was prepped and painted  well and we are convinced the beauty will last for many years.

Joel stained my deck and painted the patio. The patio had to be redone because of blistering through no fault of Joel’s. He had to apply a chemical to remove all the paint and applied a more expensive special patio paint with no extra charge to me.
The finished job was beautiful.
Joel’s work is thorough, clean and professional.
