I know that if I went with a cheaper company, I'd have gotten a much lower quality service where they got paint everywhere and missed spots. Go with this company and you won't regret it! They're worth the money.

Due to a lack of data available, it’s hard to say whether painting your home’s interior or exterior will increase its value. But there are some important things to keep in mind.
This was so great! Thank you for all the tips. I’d like to buy a house and fix it up one day and I know these tips will come in handy! Jo February 25, 2015
My family had an amazing experience with this company. They were so very profession and nice right from the first walk thru to the very end. I am always impressed when a company has been around 40 plus years. It shows they have pride in what they do. Every little detail was perfect. Truly I was surprised and their precision on the windowsills. Overall this was a great experience with a fair and honest price. Thanks again for making this house really shine.
If you still think of house painting only as a way to make your home look pretty, you are not using it to its full potential.

The biggest trick is not to specify the types of material to be used on your job and use the cheapest materials available. This saves the contractor money while impacting the quality and lifespan of your paint project. Ask about the materials that will be used and make sure they are specified in writing.
Ask companies to include all details in writing. Although that sounds simple enough, too many contractors submit offers such as “paint house for $5,000.” A friendly contractor may offer a reassuring handshake and promise that the crew will take care of all the details — starting on time, working every day, cleaning up, etc. That’s great, but why not include each point in the proposal? If it’s a challenge to get a written description of labor, materials and other details, things will probably get worse when the work starts.
If a contractor is confident about the way they work, they’ll prove it by asking you to judge for yourself, not only at the end of a job, but while work is in progress. Things to look for: Work vehicles: are they clean, organized and professional? The painters: are they neatly dressed and groomed? Materials: are ladders, scaffolding, drop cloths and electrical equipment in good condition? Is work being done carefully so as not to damage landscaping or property?
Believe it or not, there is more that goes into house painting than putting paint on a wall. There is prep work, clean up, priming and other details that must be addressed, which should be included in your initial quote. Before you sign on the dotted line with a painting contractor, you should get a detailed quote that lists all the steps being taken and how much each service will cost, including: Power washing Caulking, sanding and priming Wood or stucco repair (professional contractors will know what needs to be done without you telling them) Details of products and application methods (great contractors know the right products for every job) Touch-ups and cleanup Is the quote printed on company letterhead? Does the sheet show the contractor’s license number? Does he use a local landline phone number (be wary if only a cell phone number is listed)? Tax ID number? Work guarantee and relevant product warranties?
