MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA -- Shawn and his team at College Works were very professional and courteous. They painted quickly and efficiently even though they had to quit several times because of rain. As soon as it stopped they were back painting again. It took a little extra time but the team seemed to work well together. I am very pleased with the new clean look of my house and garage. I will hire them again to paint the house and garage when it needs it again next.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN -- On a Saturday morning my doorbell rang. I went to the front door to answer it and was greeted by very sharp young man who introduced himself as Ben **, a representative of College Works Painting. He explained his business, clearly articulated his business plan, the products and services, and his personal goals in taking on this summer business between college semesters.
Then he asked if I had painting needs. My first response was “no” then I asked if they stained decks and he affirmed they did. I showed him my deck and asked him to give me a quote. His quote was very fair and I accepted it, so we scheduled a date, then selected a type of stain and the color from a huge range of options.
Ben and his crew arrived on the appointed date, they power washed all surfaces to be stained. Staining the deck meant top to bottom, inside and out, a job I had been putting off for months due to the complexity and time and effort required to complete it. The guys dug in and completed the entire project in a day and a half. They did a quality job, covering every inch inside out, up, down, and around. They were professional and diligent in completing the work and exceeded my expectations of the job and how they went about completing it.
Ben and crew can be proud of their work, done on time, at a fair price, and being very easy to work with. I can heartily recommend Ben and his crew of College Works Painters without reservation should you want to work with Ben and his crew.
CATONSVILLE, MARYLAND -- Contracted with Trey ** of College Works in March of 2017 to power wash and paint double-deck, front door, shutters, and concrete surrounding base of house in the spring preferably May 2017. After signing contract, Trey kept in touch as promised to begin work early May.
Color choices were made and guys showed for work as scheduled though the week proved to be one of the hottest for spring in May. All prep work of scraping, pounding nails into wood, etc. performed and finished product left house ready for spring flowers. Workers were prompt and efficient leaving no mess for cleanup by homeowner even though job took several days. I would definitely use Trey and his crew again if the need arose.
TOPEKA, KANSAS -- I contracted with College Works Painting to paint the trim around the doors, windows, garage door and fascia, as well as the front door and side garage door of my house. Montana and the college works crew did a great job with the painting and finished in a timely manner. They even held off painting around two windows at my request as the windows were to be replace just a few days after painting.
There was an issue with the paint on the front door, so when Montana came back to complete the painting around the replaced windows he also repainted the front door until it met my approval. The crew was professional and they did a good job making sure that everything was cleaned up each day of painting.
OXFORD, MICHIGAN -- I contracted College Works Painting to paint the outside trim on my house very early in the spring so that I would be at the top of the list for the summer season as I wanted to list my house for sale. I was required to give a 25% deposit at the contract signing which I reluctantly did. When June rolled around and no work was started I continuously contacted the sales representative and received numerous excuses for the delay. Then in July he would no longer accept my calls.
Repeated attempts to resolve the issue through the main office in California went nowhere. Their resolution amounted to sending emails to the local owner. I finally contacted my local sheriff's office and was told that since they did no work and took my money that it was fraud and that they were going to seek criminal charges. When notified of this the sales representative immediately refunded my deposit.
I then contracted a professional painter from Angie's List who had the job done within a week, no deposit required. And get this, it was $800 cheaper. College Works could have sub-contracted this guy and pocketed the difference. This delay cost me valuable time in the short summer sales season and resulted in having to sell for less than similar houses sold earlier. My advise to you is to hire a professional and do not pay anything upfront.
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI -- We found out about College Works through Facebook, and they sent out Zane ** and he came out and bid the project and ran us through the materials and how they were going to get our house painted. I listened throughout the day and heard him directing his crew in a very professional and mature manner for a college kid. Our house looks fantastic and we would definitely recommend CollegeWorksPainting for anyone needing a great paint job from a hardworking college student. Great job guys!
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI -- Painting crew kept in contact before project started to alert of status of start. Started when they said they would. Were on time, professional and stayed as needed to complete the project. Was receptive to comments and walkthroughs for satisfaction. Zane ** led a quality crew and made sure we were happy at the end of each day and reviewed the progress to verify all aspects were covered. End project looked fantastic.
BLUE SPRINGS, MISSOURI -- The team did a great job. They were responsive, attentive, thorough, and respectfully received feedback. They walked us through the process explaining what exactly would take place. They were very helpful and provided recommendations with regard to color selections. I would recommend this company.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- In the Spring my husband and I discovered some siding damage due to weathering. We requested a bid from this company. They made an appointment promptly and came out ASAP. They submitted their bid and it did not change during the course of the work. They matched our paint perfectly and completed the job in two days. They scraped, sanded and painted. The job was done professionally and we are truly happy with the outcome.
IRVINE, CALIFORNIA -- Best house painting job received in many years. The young men showed regularly at 8 AM each morning they were scheduled. They worked hard all day... some days rainy or cool, others sunny, hot, & steamy. These guys were the greatest — hardworking, pleasant, polite. What more could I say, except that I plan to have them come back for some new construction that's in the mill.
