    I highly recommend Michael's paint service and would definitely only hire him from now on. He is very professional and it is not hard to see that he prides on his work. He and his crew are very respectful with our property. They work very neatly and clean. It's been a year since we hired him to paint a big portion of our house outdoors and our house still looks fresh and new. I am very confident that he is very mindful and used very good quality of paint that would lasts long impressions. What makes him stand out more than other company is that he really cares about his clients. He gives fair prices, he is very kind, very honest and he pretty much treated our family like a good neighbor. He definitely did above and beyond in fulfilling his job. We are extremely satisfied with his service.

    I had Painting by Michael paint the outside of my home - vinyl siding and brick. This is an excellent company to do your project. Michael keeps his appointments and is supportive in the decision making process. He and his crew are happy, arrive on time, work diligently and do a wonderful job. Best of all Michael stands behind his work, responds to questions and concerns and resolves all completely. I would highly recommend this company for any painting project. I just love the transformation from a boring home to a show stopper. A great experience overall.

    Fantastic Job. I cannot stress enough how professional this company is. Every single promise was carried through. They started work on the promised date, showed up on time, moved all the furniture and then returned it when the job was completed, with everything cleaned up properly. The paint job was perfect with all the holes accrued over 50+ years patched seamlessly. Every step of the process was done with courtesy and professionalism. All husbands should appreciate that I came home to zero complaints and that is worth every penny of a job well done. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed. Our son was thrilled with his "Philadelphia Eagles" painted bedroom so don't be afraid to ask Michael for something a little out of the ordinary.

    We hired Painting by Michael in hopes he could fix a very bad whole house paint job. Have to say they exceeded our expectations in more ways than one. Michaels crew is fantastic. They are knowledgeable, professional, communicative and they must be magicians. Our house could not look better now. We now have a painter we can trust and call. Thank you Painting by Micheals crew! A special thank you to Greg, Nathan, Willie, Lester, Tony, Greg's son (sorry I forgot your name) and any other young man with the crew I have forgotten. Job well done.

    We hired Painting by Michael to paint two downstairs rooms, our 2 story foyer, upstairs hallways and another back stairway area, as well as the ceilings on each of the areas. In fact, once the painting was already underway, we realized the back stairway and its ceiling also needed to be done, and Michael and his crew added that area on to the job with no hesitation. I can not stress enough how excellent this business is !!! I wish I could give them 20 stars rather than 5. Michael made everything easy from the first step, through the job and upon completion. He gave great advice on paint color, such as making it 70% of the full color to give the shade I wanted (he was correct !), and was very meticulous about making sure all the work was done to the highest quality. His crew was very punctual, PLEASANT, EFFICIENT and hard working, as well as being really excellent painters ! They finished everything in 2 days and also came back after the job was done to do a thorough DETAILED inspection of the painting to find and fix any tiny things that may have been missed. They moved and put back our furniture, our drapes and also painted every bit of trim, baseboards, doors and door frames that are in the area of the walls they painted. We didn't even know that they'd do that. To say we are happy with their work is a huge understatement ! The price of the work was very fair too ! Do yourself a favor and get your painting done by Painting by Michael !

    Painting By Michael did an outstanding job painting my condo. The owner showed up to provide an estimate and scheduling of the job. I had my entire condo painted, including closets and trim. The owner participated in the supervision of his crew and in the painting to my condo. The crew showed up on time each day, and all of the workers were very professional. The quality of work was outstanding, and they did a great job cleaning up once the job as completed. The job was completed on-time as promised. I would highly recommend Painting By Michael for any of your painting needs, and I plan on hiring them over any other company for any of my painting needs.

    5.0 Jeanne O. Virginia Beach, VA

    They did an excellent job on repairing, cleaning and painting the exterior of our cedar shingled home. Michael even made suggestions that made the new paint job look more complete. I would highly recommend them for your next painting job.

    Michael is a true professional and a man of integrity. He is definitely a CUT ABOVE THE REST! One of his crew members by the name of Willie, did some painting in my kitchen after it had been properly prepped by Michael. Michael covered some holes so nicely you would never have known they were there to start with. Willie did a beautiful paint job. He TOOK HIS SHOES OFF before entering my home without being asked and draped everything properly. The whole experience was good. I will not hesitate to use them again. Fair price also. Mary P. Va.
