What Our Customers Say About Working With Us

Everything we do is to ensure we’ve completed a project you’ll love.

As a real estate investor, I’ve seen what sloppy painting looks like and this was far from it. No drips or overspray, and no tape, trash or supplies left behind.

But the real reason for the fifth star is the speed at which Bernado and his crew were able to take my job and then complete it. I was painting my house to place it on the market and was crunched for time. Plus I had houseguests to work around but everything worked out perfectly!

In the end, I appreciated the competitive bid, quality of his work, friendliness of his crew and thoroughness of Bernardo himself. I would not hesitate to have Bernardo’s paint my next investment or recommend them to my friends.


Wendell K.

I cannot recommend Bernardo enough. This guy is very, very bright and on top of his game.

I used to work in interior design and am probably more demanding than most when it comes to any aspect of home renovation. However, Bernardo and his guys did not disappoint.

I have gone through the entire home and the paint is impeccable. Not a single off-stroke. The coverage is perfect.

More than that, though, Bernardo is the consummate professional and truly an expert in his field. He had my complete confidence from start to finish, and that is worth its weight in gold.


Shannon C.

I just moved from the mainland and I needed my house painted before my household goods arrived. I called Bernardo on a Sat for an estimate and his estimate beat another painters by $400. He is very thorough with his estimates. He has an eye for detail and will point out any issues he sees on the walls.

On Sunday I signed the contract and he dropped the paint off. Monday and Tuesday his crew painted the walls of my home and took care of any blemishes in the drywall.

His crew got everything done before the movers unloaded the Matson. I’d recommend Bernardo to anyone looking for interior or exterior painting.
