5.0 Allen V. Sandston, VA

Al was outstanding and I would use and or recommend him for all future jobs

5.0 Diane S. Chesapeake, VA

We just purchased a new home and found ourselves in a predicament when removing a wall decal caused damage down to the drywall. We needed repair and painting right away! While at the local Wawa I saw the business logo on Alâ s truck and asked him for his business card. I was able to share the situation with him and he told me he would see what he could do. Al and his crew were out there the next morning and worked efficiently over the next 3 days to repair the wall and paint 2 bedrooms! (We were so impressed by his professionalism and ability that we asked him to paint the bedrooms too!) If we werenâ t on a time crunch to move in, we would have wanted him to paint the entire downstairs. Al is a talented painter and he and his awesome crew did quality work in a timely efficiently manner for a fair price. As a bonus, heâ s a genuinely nice guy! We will be using his services again and highly recommend AP Emperior Painting!

5.0 Gracie O. Richmond, VA

My experience with Mr Ali Pryer who I had to do interior painting, First and foremost Mr Pryer is a very professional person and painter. He is very honest in his dealing and a true person of his his word. I found him to be very knowledgeable and is willing to go beyond the job he is doing. If I had to rate him it would be a 100 percent professional painter. If at any time he made any changes he always let me know ahead of time and made sure I approve of it.He comes highly recommended by me andI I would definitely refer him to my families and friends. He did a wonderful job on my three bedrooms interior wall painting. I will be using his services again. Thanks a lot for job well done.

4.5 Patricia O. Henrico, VA


Response from Company:

Patricia Project was a bit challenging because of the nature of its project. her kitchen cabinets were very outdated and covered with thick layers of old paint. It was a big deal getting the old paint and hardware. Nevertheless, she was patient with allowing me the extra time to complete this project. I had to make some corrections on some mishaps but we worked through it and got the results we were looking for it turnout beautifully and she was very proud of her new look kitchen cabinets. It made both of us very happy a sigh of relief. She was a sweetheart and a good person.
