“Attention to detail is excellent!”

5 / 5

John was very personable and pleasant to work with. His attention to detail and product knowledge was excellent. It wasn’t just a house painting, it was a work of art. We really couldn’t be happier, and would definitely use him in the future!

We had a bit of a job for John and Conrad’s Painting to remove a popcorn-esque texture from our interior ceilings. They were able to knock it out within budget. The ceilings look great now!
