Not only does a fresh coat of paint in a flattering color look great, but it also can make rooms appear brighter and more open if you use a light color.

Picking a Paint Color Potential Buyers Will Love

People happy with our services

I never thought getting my garage floor painted would make so many of my friends jealous! You did such a meticulous job, especially on the details. I especially appreciated the time you took to explain all the necessary steps to complete a quality job. We are so glad we hired you. I am already thinking about some additional work for this spring.

We just had our deck stained and are beyond satisfied. Everyone from the young ladies that set up the estimates to the crew that does the work were very professional and friendly. The 2 gentleman worked hard until the project was absolutely complete. Our deck looks fantastic! Thank you and we look forward to doing more business with you.

Spectrum did the most professional and diligent work I've ever had done in my home. The staff's attention to detail, tidiness and pleasant manners make contracting with them a top-notch experience. Spectrum gets an A+++ in my book!

Scott & Shelly P. | Jan/12/2015
A+ I was thrilled when I came home to see the completed project. I looked long and hard to find a single thing to possibly complain about and came up empty handed. I appreciate the emails and phone call correspondence getting the estimate and scheduling the work. The crew leader, Jose, was fantastic at pointing out small details, answering questions, and making recommendations in addition to completing a great job. The crew did an especially great job prepping and cleaning up. I'm sure that I will need more painting and power washing done in the future and I will not hesitate to contact Spectrum again.

Have used Spectrum Painting for interior painting of our kitchen/nook, dining and living rooms as well as power washing of our deck. Spectrum is a very professional, efficient and thorough contractor and the results are excellent. From initial booking through site survey, cost estimate, contracting, scheduling, on time arrival, schedule adherence, friendliness of crew, clean up and follow up, they excel. Will not hesitate to use Spectrum again soon.

One of the very best you will find in this area. Highly competent, punctual and with an aim to please. Spectrum has painted most of the interior of my home and most recently, my large outdoor deck. When they are here, I can relax knowing they will treat my home like it's their own. There's an added comfort knowing that there's a responsive team leader present on each job to whom I can address any questions or concerns. Don't go for the low-end companies. Price is what you pay, but lasting value is what you get.
