College Students Perform A Great Painting Service
Posted by on
RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, CALIFORNIA -- College Works Painting did an AWESOME job of painting my summer home. Their students were courteous and paid attention to the smallest detail. Their pricing was hundreds lower than the local contractors.

The last time I hired a high-priced contractor, it took weeks before he even got STARTED. 2 of the contractors that were supposed to come to my house and give me an estimate and never showed or called again. College Works Painting showed up when they said they would, called when they said they would and did the job that they promised for the same money as the 'one coat latex' jobs the other guys were trying to pitch.

I've seen some others arguing that these students are under trained and only have a couple years of hands on experience, sheesh folks, it's not about how you work your wrist with the paintbrush, its about how much the painter cares about the job he does. These students paid attention to details and surpassed my expectations by far.

Thanks College Works Painting, I will use you again and refer my friends and family!

That's awesome! I wish I had known this when I had my place painted. I hired a "professional." He was terrible & did a terrible job. Because we negotiated the price, he had the nerve to say, "You get what you pay for!" I sure did too. :( Apparently he forgot he AGREED to it...and I had it in writing.

I have a strong belief this was posted by an employee of the company. First College Works Painting painters get most of their business by going door-to-door in February through April, but don't start painting houses till June. If this person had a problem with a professional that couldn't start for 2 weeks, why would they hire College Works Painting who wouldn't be able to start for at least 3 months?
Second, because these students get business by knocking on doors, either this person was at their "vacation home" in the months af February through April, or else the painter came to their working home. If the student came to their working home, that painter wouldn't then travel to the person's "vacation home" to paint because the students are assigned no more than a few neighboring towns as their territory. Of course this person could vacation in the next town over, but I smell something very fishy about this review.

CWP painted my house. It looks great. I referred them to my neighbors and they did his house too. We are both happy with the work. The manager in charge was more than capable. it is just house painting!

koskijus who posted the comment just above this one is Justin Koski, executive vice president of College Works Painting. He is not the customer he says he is. He represents the kind of fraudulent people running this company.
From the College Works Painting site to prove he is not a customer who was happy with a paint job:

Again, I did not say I was a client Dominic! Simply relaying excerpts from reference letters that are available on our website at Here are a few more'

"College Works painted my home this past summer and I can't tell you how happy I am with the work. The amount of care put into the job was amazing to me. I would recommend them to anyone who is getting painting done."

"The crew was professional and cleaned up after themselves. We have had our house painted three times in 16 years of living in our 1960's split level and the job Bridget and her crew did was BY FAR the best. The other painters spent three days at our house and Bridget spent five. They primed and rolled all the siding on the front and it looks great. The trim color is fabulous and Bridget was very patient with us when trying out colors. Thanks to Bridget, her crew and College Works we have the nicest looking house on the block."

All I can say is that anyone that hasn't had a problem with College Works Painting is very lucky. We had our house painted this past summer and had to fight every step of the way to get things done right and to have the messes they left behind cleaned up. The prep work was horrible, the paint job was a disaster and it was obvious the painters had never been trained. They even threw razor blades on the ground in our backyard after scraping their paint off of our windows and poured paint directly into our trash cans. It was a nightmare and one we never plan to repeat. By the way this was College Works Painting in the Southern California area.
