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.

I used Gruber Painting in October for a complete home exterior painting! They left a happy customer. We got four quotes and found Joel Gruber to be very thorough while quoting paying special attention to the small things. He suggested using quality paints and products so the job would stand the test of time and not fade. We found his price to be comparable to the big companies  After selecting Gruber Painting, Joel came by one evening and helped my wife and I choose colors. He helped us by explaining the different modern color schemes as well as the types of paints to use. Throughout the job we found Joel and his crew to be punctual and open and accepting of household needs (We have dogs that needed to go out during the workday). I would also like to add that he replaced some skirting on our place as well (as he has his contractors license) and did a great, professional job! He was onsite with the crew everyday and on the last day did a walk around with me to make sure everything was touched up. This company proved that they are the real deal, quality, painting company and can handle repairs as well. A great local south bay company!!!!! ;0)
