B & L did a great job painting my home (exterior). I would use them again for additional painting jobs.

5.0 Samantha D. Wilmington, NC

Jimmy and the crew came in after another company we hired did not return. I canâ t tell you how much we appreciate him and the team for helping us get the results we wanted from the beginning. Jimmy was professional and accommodating and went above our expectations. He even took some of our rusted hardware off as a favor and didnâ t charge us. Because of this experience I wanted to write an extensive review to help this company get the business they deserve. What a breath of fresh air after dealing with a nightmare of a company beforehand.

5.0 Jacob R. Wilmington, NC

Did a excellent job on my home, would highly recommend!

5.0 Christy S. Wilmington, NC

Absolutely stellar company. Professional from start to finish. Our home looks amazing. Would definitely recommend this company and use them again in the future!

Do not hire this company! Overpriced, poor workmanship, does not follow through. Jimmy takes advantage of his workers by not paying them after the job is completed. I would recommended that Angi take this company off their website, immediately! My furniture and flooring are covered with paint spatters. The custom molding is uneven in places and the tubs and showers are starting to peel. I called Jimmy after one week to come fix the areas that I am writing about but he has not returned to fix anything. Jimmy, the owner talks a good game but he is nothing more than a con artist!

Response from Company:

Thanks for the message, Tracey. This is definitely a surprise hearing this considering you recently recommended us to your neighbor and we just finished their home two days ago. However please let me know how we can fix any areas that need our attention as we will be more than happy to come back.

Good job

5.0 Michael F. Bolivia, NC

Jimmy showed up the day after I asked for a quote. Got the price in a couple days and it was a very good number! They started painting about a week later, which was much sooner than I had anticipated. They painted all 4 buildings in less than a week and were very nice/easy to work with. If anyone I know needs a house painted....I am giving them Jim's name for sure.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
