Today we used the painting services of Joseph's Painting Service out of Orland Park. Joe, the owner, was a very nice man, and we had had 3 total estimates. His was by FAR the lowest. I called a neighbor for reference, as Joe had pointed out that he had painted their house (inside, ours was exterior, only).
She indicated that he was a very good painter, and had a very good crew.
He showed up early in the morning, and had the job wrapped up within a few hours. (Wasn't a huge job, just doors and trim work.)
The work seems fine, and they cleaned up after themselves. I would recommend them, at this point, but with a reminder to always get estimates for comparison. If the paint peels prematurely, or we find any problems, I will edit this post for sure!
