Excellent work on a small project, which included repair of some sun and water damaged wood areas.  The team was very professional and completed the work with great results.  I highly recommend this team.

Computerlaw Group (Boutique IP Law Firm) hired CertaPro Painters to paint our historic building located in downtown Palo Alto.  Dan Ford not only worked with us on a competitive quote but he had incredible integrity.  We discussed how to give our building a fresh coat of paint without painting the whole building. Dan explained the best way to accomplish it so it would look its best and not just a patch job.  He wanted to represent his painting company proudly and he did.  Thank you to CertaPro's Dan and Santiago.

I want to really thank Tony and his crew for doing a fantastic job painting the interior of our home as well as one interior/exterior accent wall. He was always on time, or even early, was detail oriented, super easy to communicate with and got the job done as quickly as was possible. Thank you Tony! More...

CertaPro did a great job painting the exterior stucco walls, wood trim, and wood doors of our 7-unit townhouse development.  This was complicated since each unit had its own color scheme.  The company gave us a reasonable estimate, and were highly reliable in following through with the August 2017 schedule that we agreed upon.  Foreman Javier Perez was vigilant in making sure all went well, and the skill of all the painters was evident in their attention to detail.  They even alerted us to some problems with a few of the roof tiles which we have since had repaired.  Also outstanding was their care in cleaning up every day, and keeping ladders, buckets, and drop cloths neatly stored.

What a total pleasure to read such consistently solid reviews of a company. I'll definitely be contacting CertaPro, and thank you to everyone who shared their opinion.

So happy with Certa Pro. Dan, the owner actually came and did our estimate for us. He pointed out some things that were problematic that we would have missed otherwise. The two other painting contractors we had come to look at and bid the job missed these elements entirely. Certa Pro was efficient and always had a supervisor on site or immediately available. They showed up early (couldn't believe it) so they actually started working right at the time they promised. Job was done perfectly and better than we hoped for. More...

We initially had some miscommunication with this company, but their owner Dan immediately stepped up to the plate, and gave us an estimate the same day. He was very professional and helpful and I would recommend using CertaPro Painters of Silicon Calley for any of your painting needs! More...

I used CertaPro for a small job of painting window trim on some new windows.  They were prompt to respond with the bid and flexible due to my travel schedule.  On the day of the job I asked if they could come early than scheduled and they accommodated my request.  I plan to use them on an interior paint job as well.  I would highly recommend them based on my experience.  I should note the job was in SanJose (not Templeton).

They are outstanding ! We interviewed 7 vendors (and received 7 quotes/proposals) before we decided to go with Dan and his team to paint the exterior of our house. They were extremely professional, easy and pleasant to work with. First, Dan showed up on time, walked us through the process, took photos, and then provided a detailed and comprehensive proposal via an email within 2 hours. Two days later, Rodrigo and team showed up on time and started the project. They gave us quick updates every morning and late afternoon before they left (whenever we were available). We checked on the progress regularly and they addressed every single issue/question we had. They were very friendly, effective, efficient and hard working. Their painting quality was absolutely top rated and attention to details was so impressive. They took pride for their work and they should. Dan also provided an Interior Designer Theresa for color consultations - this was fairly unique. Theresa was just wonderful. She helped us to pick the colors and we absolutely LOVE the outcome. Dan and his support team Samantha and Ashley were always reachable, very responsive, and on top of issues. Dan leads a very professional, productive, totally functional and super high quality team. We really enjoyed working with Dan and his team throughout the project. They rocked and were awesome. We are VERY happy with the results and will definitely work with them again for our future painting projects. Thanks much Dan, Rodrigo, Theresa, Samantha, Ashley and team! More...

Great vendors!  Started out with professional quote. Dan clearly explained the quoting process and how his team would proceed.  Received the quote within an hour of his visit.   Most thorough and professional quote we received.Jose and Felipe,  were assigned to our project.  They were respectful,  professional,   made sure to explain what they would be doing each day.   They made sure any questions we had ware clearly answered..  At the end of each day,  they made sure they left our house as clean as it was when they arrived that morning.  The end paint job was excellent,  better than we even expected!If you are looking for  professional,  respectful and skilled painters,  you cannot go wrong with CertaProKaron and JoAnn More...

came out as agreed, did a good job, showed me some dry rot that needed to be fixed before they could paint it. nice, and came back after I fixed it and painted the wall.

Certa Pro was in my experience the best painter I have ever used. The explanation of the process they use for exterior painting was what I would expect from a professional painting company. The actual job done for my house was at higher level of attention to detail than I expected. The Color Coordinator helped us find the right combination that my wife appreciated. I have a large 2 story house, and the Prep Work done was very important to get a lasting paint job. A full primer coat that bonds to the existing paint, a final coat that looked great, and an excellent trim paint coat that was close to perfect in detail. Most of all they are great to work with, as Dan, Pedro, and his assistant really do care about delivering the project to your satisfaction. You may find cheaper painters, you get what you pay for with them. A house paint that will look great for many years. More...

The house looks great. They were very attentive and did a great job. The only down side was the quote said the job would take 3 days and it ended up taking 5 days. That was fine for a job well done.

I was extremely pleased with CertaPro painters. To begin, I just hired them for a second time. The first time was to paint the interior of my office. As you may expect based on previous reviews, and my intro, they did a great job on my office. Each time I hired them, it started with a very detailed quote, outlining expectations from daily cleanup to photos of the job. I was impressed by their quick response to an RFP, and constant and consistent communication. For those if you requesting quotes, you have probably experienced a lack of response before from other companies- not with the CertaPro owner, Dan Ford.  They provided a quote, timeline, a (fair) payment schedule, warranty, proof of workmans compensation insurance, industry disclosures- all when promised. In addition, they provided a complimentary color consultation. I was very surprised when a professional decorator showed up, with some great insight. I have to admit, I expected a contractor to come with some book filled with pictures. Instead, she connected very well with my wife and me- and gave some great insight in picking our colors. Because of that, we completely changed the color of our home, bringing it into today's look. They stuck to their proposed timeline, provided an exceptional paint job. The job foreman, Israel, was clear and consistent in his communication with me every day. The second job was a four-day external paint job. At the end of the day, I knew where we stood. We did an initial walk through, which we explained how we wanted things done. We also did a post-job walk through where I half expected the corrections I needed done to take until the next day. No-way! They did it right then and there without any complaint. I felt very comfortable giving them the feedback that there were a couple of errors. And they were fixed very quickly. Overall, I was very very pleased. I did request 10-12 quotes, and got only 4. Of the four, I will say this was not the lowest dollar amount. But there is no question that I got the best value. They were the most professional, and provided security that should something have happened (fall, etc) that I was 100% protected. They did an excellent job, and followed their timeline. Thank you Dan Ford & CertaPro Painters for a job well done. It's nice to know I have a painting company I can proudly recommend to my Friends, Neighbors & Family. More...

They painted the exterior of our house. The preparation was well done. They sanded and patched the stucco. Would definitely recommend them to my friends.

I had CertaPro paint my two-car garage and I'm extremely happy with both the job and the price I paid for it. Dan was top-notch and had an estimate emailed to me later the same day he came to view my garage. Ashley helped me schedule the appointment and finalize the details of the job. The guy who did the work was on time, professional and courteous, and most importantly did a great job. He even cleaned up afterward and put my workbench etc back in place. Any time I need more painting done, I'm certain I'll call CertaPro first! More...

Certa Pro painters as a group the office, management, paint techs, pretty much all people I dealt with were very professional. They were quick with bid. Fair price for great work. They were also quick addressing changes  --and there were several on our large project--they did not skip a beat. I recommend this company for your next paint project. More...

Second time repeat business, and I am very happy with the work done. I had CertaPro paint the exterior of my house this time. Dan was prompt and very competitive with his quote. Very responsive as well; I barely had to wait half a day (if that) to get a reply to my email or phone call. His crew of father-and-son, Mario and Sammy, were very polite, courteous, and had great attention to detail. They listened to every request I made, and even gave some valuable suggestions and tips. Would recommend again. More...

We're very satisfied with our exterior house painting. Clean, thorough and job complete on time on budget. The project manager assigned to our job was excellent. They did what they said, when they said they were going to do it. Communication was seamless from beginning to end. We had had four quotes for the same work and the prices did very. We feel the charges were a fair value for the job well done! More...

Late on my review, as I had them come last December. But I'm still in awe of how good of a job they did for us.Our walls still look great, there wasn't a mistake anywhere to be found, and they were clean, professional, and courteous. Dan is a great contact and the whole team was fantastic. I will definitely use CertaPro again. More...

Dan and his team did a great job painting the inside of my two story home. It was very important for me to find a trusted licensed painter. Dan arrived on time for the initial estimate review and provided a detailed cost breakdown for the entire house. I felt very comfortable asking Dan questions about the painting process and the crew. The team finished my house within three days. They were very careful with my house paying close attention to my hardwood floors and the furniture. I am very pleased with the results. There are other painters that quoted a cheaper price. I went with Dan because I felt he truly cared about doing the best job for his clients. It was well worth the cost. More...

They offered a color consultant. Next time, we will use that service. In addition, I will clarify what I consider to be the "Trim" versus "Accent" parts of the house. This misunderstanding resulted in a change order, which increased the cost of the project. The paint crew was very efficient. They were done in 3 days. The house looks great and they also cleaned up the surrounding areas as well. More...

We had Dan paint the interior of most of our home, spanning several months due to travel. Not only was Dan patient in working around our hectic schedule, the entire process was smooth and professional from t=0 to the end. The color coordinator that Dan commissioned was extremely helpful, precisely recognizing our tastes and translating them into beautiful color combinations of the wall, ceiling, and trim for each of the rooms.The price was highly competitive and Dan's integrity is second-to-none. Highly recommended for turn-key solutions for the busy family wanting superior service and quality. More...

My house is old and it is wood ..... needed much prep work ...... had peeling paint ... required major scraping and sanding .... then sent two painters .... a forman and a painter ..... they were on time everyday and worked their butts off ... cleaned up after themselves and did excellent work ....... I was very happy ...... and so is this old house ....... More...

Hands down they are great. From the quote to the end of the job. Herbert & Irineo were on time and were very professional. Herbert knew what he was doing and willing to help me. Herbert it right..  I could not be happier. I think Herbert must live with a lot of women. If it were me I would have been frustrated on the 1st day. Not Herbert & Irineo they just made it right. Love it! I would use them again. 5 star all the way More...

This was a job to preserve my rafters that are exposed to the elements. The proof of whether this was a good job or a not so good job will be in 5 years when this job will either be failing or will be still good to go. If it is in good shape then, I'll consider them for the rest of the house. More...

I am very satisfied with their work and service. They even could find me a carpenter to repair the sidings of my house before they started painting and came back to finish the job after my patio doors replaced. I definitely would recomment this company to the other people. More...
