Project: Paint or Stain Interior Surfaces
Fred and his assistant Bill were professional, courteous and timely for all appointments. I would not hesitate to hire - this was second time we hired Teacher Painting and probably not be the last!

Review by in Avon, OH
We hired Teacher Painting because they had good reviews and were less than a competitor. We were doing our best to work within the confines of the claim paid by our insurance company. At first, the job looked decent. The trim work was not great but seemed somewhat ok. After the paint had cured for several days and I have a chance to really inspect the job, I discovered it was a total mess. I could not find a single wall that did not have thin areas where the old paint was showing thru. This should never happen with two coats of paint. The trim work is also a wreck. In many areas the trim color is on the walls and vice versa. I even found an area where the dry wallpaper was torn. This was a result of using standard masking tape (which was left all over the place) instead of painters tape. There are also numerous large paint blobs on several walls. The doors are also a mess. The color and sheen is not consistent on any door. Paint blobs in the corners of the panel decoration on most doors. At least one door will no longer close correctly anymore. Finally, not everything was taped. There is paint on light switches, towel racks, toilet paper holders, railings, etc. I thought I hired a professional. Although the painter was a very nice guy, all but one day he was the only painter and unfortunately the job was an unprofessional mess. I do not believe I would allow Teacher Painting back to repair the mistakes. I certainly would not hire them again.

Review by in Avon, OH
Fred and the men working with him all did a phenomenal job! I had my staircase painted along with our entire house painted. Not only was the pricing very reasonable but most importantly the work they did was high-quality. Fred is more than wonderful with communication. He got each job done exactly within the timeframe he gave us. They took their time and Fred always went over all of the work to make sure lines were perfect and that everything looked professional. My home now looks like a brand new home. Fred and his team even patched up damaged areas on the walls, door jams, and baseboards. Teacher painting is very trustworthy. They get the job done and they get it done the right way. They kept their work area in the home clean and made sure to protect our hardwood flooring so that it was not scratched with ladders and other materials. I cannot say enough about this company. IĆ¢ m so thankful I went through Fred and his team! Very friendly and great painters!

Appreciated the attention to assessment of what needed to be done, including repairs to walls before painting began. Kitchen cabinet doors needed extra attention with prep and priming. He was flexible about our schedule, and we were flexible with his, as he planned some time off. Very organized, very experienced.
Response by Teacher Painting: Thank you for the comments. Some of the surfaces were very difficult to work with but we addressed those concerns and provided a professional approach. Fred Meczka, Teacher Painting.

Hired Teacher painting twice! Fred show's up on time- answers the phone, hires a professional staff, and gets the job done quickly and neatly. He and team cleaned up every day after finishing which made living through the painting process easy to manage. Would hire again if needed!

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.
