Yvonne Penn

"You are the best! Jim arrived on time and was informative. We learned things from him. He was great. When we received the proposal, I had a question, which Cindy, quickly answered. Once we scheduled, a portion of the work (one are is not ready yet) the workers were on time and were very careful to fully cover everything so there was no mess. They did a really great jhob and then when they were done, took everything away. You would never know they had been here. The next day, they arrived on time to prime and paint. Everything looks bright and spanking clean. Better than before. You are terrific!"

Gladdis D

"Quality of painting was exceptional! There were a couple things that prevented me from giving a full 5 start rating this time around. The first was that the cabinet doors were not put back on evenly, and two doors were switched and installed in the wrong place. The second thing was that paint was dripped on my entry rug inside the front door. I did not notice for a couple days, and by that time I was not able to get the paint out of the rug."

Emerson J

"The Lookswell Painting crew did an incredible job painting my ceilings and walls. I couldn't be happier! Also, Cindy Parker was amazing with the scheduling, quoting, etc."

"Omar was punctual, friendly, and communicated very well about how he was going to handle our small project. As he was working, he asked questions and asked for our input, which we appreciated. He was totally professional and did a terrific job."

James G

"We were very pleased with the Lookswell experience, from the estimate through the completed job. The last phase our kitchen remodeling was to have our cabinets painted, as well as the entire kitchen painted. The estimate was very competitive and the scheduling of the work met our needs. The crew was great to work with. They arrived on time every day and completed the job in the proposed time. Attention to detail was very good. The customer service from the front office to the crew was excellent. We would definitely use Lookswell again!"

David D

"Lookswell was an extremely professional company from the estimate to the finished product. Their crews were polite, professional and cleaned up when they were finished. I has three rooms, trim and doors painted and they did an outstanding job. I also had my cabinets painted and they exceeded my expectations. They look like brand new cabinet! I highly recommend this company for all of your painting needs."

Krupa K

"Lookswell did a fabulous job! We had two bedrooms painted - both with wallpaper that had been on the walls for many, many years. The painters were careful to cover our newly refinished hardwood floors. The finished rooms are just beautiful!"

Mr & Ms. Williams

"I have been so impressed by this company I MUST take the time to share my experience! From the first time we met with owner Jim Scanlan I knew he was the person we wanted to work with! Once the project began, communication was excellent and all work was done when it was promised. Their work was EXCELLENT and we could not be more satisfied! There were a couple of minor "glitches" along the way and they were taken care of immediately! If only there were more business owners like Jim Scanlan the world would be a better place!! I highly recommend this company! Pamela Hart"
