We had Scott's Painting paint the exterior of our house and we couldn't be more pleased. I received recommendations for Scott and one other highly Yelp-rated local painter from contractors who did great work for us on two different projects last year. I received estimates from both - they were very fair and within a $100 dollars of each other so I was torn as to who to work with.
We really wanted the job completed before El Nino kicked in to full gear as it was long overdue and some trim was down to the wood in spots. Getting the job done before winter rains could cause any damage was a top priority- in spite of his busy schedule Scott was the most flexible and fit us in right before Thanksgiving which sealed our decision.

Scott was on point with follow up/communication from the time we scheduled an estimate until the job was done. He showed up on time, as promised and his work was great. After the first day of painting we realized that the color we chose for the gutters and eaves was completely wrong and changed our mind about not going with a second color for the window trim in the back of the house.
Scott was very patient and accommodating, he came out on the second day to repaint the trim color we hated, trimmed the windows and finished the rest of the job. Scott was very fair on the additional costs for making the changes we wanted and took it in stride when he had to repaint what he had already completed - he wanted us to be happy with the end product...period.

Besides the quality work Scott is a very chill, personable guy and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Scott's Painting and will use him again when we're ready to tackle our large interior paint job.

Scott's Painting is superb! We hired Scott & his crew to paint our new-to-us home after encountering a very poor (though considered average and came recommended) painter for our old home. Scott had a lot to work against given my angst from just having to fix up the issues from the last home's paint job while pregnant after we paid thousands for that guy to do his "professional" job. Scott was patient, listened and realized that to me quality in trade and skill matters as much as getting the job done and it was nice to hear this is how he also operates. He then had to live up to this as the proof is in the finished product.

Well, the finished product was amazing!!! He patched any areas where old holes were (and there were a ton where previous people did not maintain well), and he and his crew took the time to ensure lines were straight and areas touched appropriately. I'm fairly particular and it took a month or so to find the two areas that were not perfect. One is a 1/2" space that was missed by many painters over the years between the length of the door jam and the shower (the gold & cream wallpaper from the 1960s shows through) and the other is the kitchen light which is now painted to the ceiling an no longer opens for bulb replacement. Compared to the person before where I was scraping paint off the back and front of toilets and cabinet surfaces, repainting lines along doorways with the correct color paint, painting between cabinets, floors, doors and/or mirrors that were missed, and going over in semi-gloss where the guy touched up semi- with flat, Scott's painting was amazing! He not only did the job right, he was very timely on the job, he left with everything tidy, cleaned up and even had the leftover paint neatly placed in a convenient location. Working with him was a joy. After the final inspection, I did not have any issues. And to even this day, two months later and after many other improvement projects, have not come across any other issues from the painting besides the two listed above. The previous painter had four pages of issues and that's just at the final inspection. It was also neat seeing how Scott would teach his crew about the finer points of painting if he saw an area that was veering from quality. Yes, I am fairly particular and have fairly high standards, so a huge "THANK YOU!!!" to Scott for meeting and exceeding those standards and to the Yelpers out there, yes, we plan on using Scott again in the future to help with painting the external part of the home when the time comes, of course referring others to him until then. :-) Please be aware, Yelpers, that Scott is extremely busy and though it's hard for him to keep up with the calls (yes, I experienced this too), texting seems to work well and his work is top notch. When he is working with you he makes you his priority. Do plan ahead if you want to use him as it makes things easier.

Thanks, Scott & crew, for a job well done, an experience that was pleasant, and all of top notch quality!!!

Scott's Painting Reviews

Happy Customers

One word: Fantastic!
Scott returned phone calls, showed up on time for both the estimate and paint job.
I had a small paint job, and the top 9 recommended painters on yelp, didn't really want my business because the job was so small. Scott, recognizing that I really needed the work done, took the time to make sure that I was a 100% satisfied customer.
I can not speak highly enough of Scott's Painting. Very professional, brought all the necessary equipment and supplies to get the job done. And they did it super fast without sacrificing quality work.
I would call Scott again in a heartbeat.
Thank you, Scott and Jose for our new living room!!!

Scott's the man. Best quote we got and the the job was a 10+! He was very good communicating unlike most contractors these days, was there when he said, and had good advice on colors. Hire him. You'll be happy!

Scott Smiley provided exactly what we needed! He responded within a couple of hours to our request for an estimate, came out to discuss the job the next day and quickly followed up with the best bid. He was very clear about what he would take on (he prefers not to paint kitchen cabinets), he had to match colors to a previous job, and he set very precise expectations on the schedule. Scott handled challenges, like making an extremely large crack in a textured load bearing shear wall disappear completely, all without issue. And he keeps the job site clean and he's fast! He completed the job on schedule and on budget and he is so easy to work with! If you worry about finding the right contractor; if you're looking for someone who can do the best job at the best price, look no further--call Scott Smiley!

Scott came out the same day to give us a quote on painting our small condo. His quote was very reasonable and he was able to do the job within a couple of days. His work turned out great! Everything we talked about was done. He does quality work. Super nice to deal with. We would definitely hire him again.

Scott did a clean, nice paint meticulously throughout the exterior of our home.
He showed up on time every day and cleaned up the area completely when the job had finished.

He later called us and came back to do a small fix on the chimney wood cracks, which showed he cared about the quality of his work!

I highly recommend this company as they are very easy to work with!

We hired Scott Smiley to paint the exterior of our 3,700 square foot home. He provided the best service we have ever received from a painter. We have hired many good painters over the past 40 years but I can say without equivocation that Scott was the best by a mile. Him and his crew were exceptionally neat, on time, on budget and very helpful from our first meeting. We will definitely use him for all of our painting jobs in the future and we have recommended him to all of our friends.

We hired Scott to paint the exterior of our home. He did a great job making sure that it was properly patched up and that no area was left untouched. We are planning on painting the interior of our home next year and my husband was so pleased with Scott's work that he suggested for us to hire Scott to paint the inside of our home. I will be giving a call to Scott next year for sure.

Scott just finished painting the exterior of our house and we are really happy with it! His bid came in lower than the other two painters I contacted for the job and he came recommended by two neighbors. He and his employee were professional and got the job done quickly. Really nice guys too!

Scott and Jose just completed painting the exterior of our house. We were impressed by their work ethic. We last painted the exterior about 25 years ago and the paint was peeling in places. Scott power washed the walls, chimney, and eaves. He allowed 2 days for everything to dry then returned to scrape the old paint, caulk, and wash the new gutters. They did a great job of protecting my windows and plants, spray painting the house, then brushing the areas where the old paint showed through. Our house looks new. We have recommended Scott's Painting to friends and neighbors and would definitely call them back for other painting jobs.

Scott and his team did an amazing job on our house. He arrived on time both days and communication was great. He also made lots of fuss of our dog and she liked him which I always take as a good sign.

Scott's painting just finished painting the exterior of our home. Every step of the process was executed in a professional manner. Scott, the company owner, is hands-on and involved in the entire process. Scott's bid was reasonable, he did what he said he was going to do and he and his team were extremely organized and professional in their work and the job results. The house looks great! I called Scott based on the other Yelp remarks and he delivered the 5 star results that several other satisfied customers gave him. Scott and his team will be called again when we need more painting done. He did an outstanding job.

Thank you Scott!

We contacted Scott about painting a pretty large retail space that hadn't seen a lick of paint in several years. He came out the next day to take a look and gave us a super competitive quote. After reading all of his fab reviews we went ahead and Scott got the job done in just a few hours. Scott and his crew were on time, organized, finished in the time promised and did a a great job.

Highly recommend!

I hired Scott to remove the "popcorn", texture and paint the ceilings in 2 bedrooms.
Scott and his crew of three arrived right on time and completed the work within 5 hours (another contractor said the work would need to be completed in phases which would take 3 days.) Scott and his crew were amazing, they covered all my furniture and did an excellent job cleaning up. My ceiling look fantastic and I am a very satisfied customer. I'd highly recommend Scott to anyone looking for a license painter.
