We have just had College Works paint our house and have been very pleased with the entire process. The college student representative was very courteous and knowledgeable. The crew worked with us to complete the job in time for a party we were hosting and the house looks great. They did a good job of prepping the siding prior to painting and were very efficient in completing the work. Our representative contacted us as soon as the work was complete to make sure we were happy with the job. I would highly recommend College Works to anyone needing their house painted.

Daniel Chadwick was the College Works Painting intern we worked with to have the full exterior of our home painted. He did an excellent job with the project. He was diligent and timely. I was impressed with him from the minute he knocked on my door offering a free estimate. Throughout the whole process he was professional and very thorough. Once he arrived at the job site to complete the project, he along with his four painters did a fantastic job! Very pleased with my experience.

College Works did a great job with the painting of our house this spring. During the estimate, Zach Schmitz, the intern, was helpful in explaining the process. We did expect the work to start earlier than it actually started, but once the process got under way, we were happy with the experience. Zach was responsive and made choosing a new color easy. The crew doing the actually painting was professional and did a nice job. Overall, we are satisfied with the work that was done.

College works painting is a company I would defiantly recommend! I have an older home build in the 60's that needed a lot of prep work and had a lot of trim. When I had an appointment for a bid we did a walk around and the intern was extremely professional and helpful with making the proper paint decisions. I have had several paint projects in the past and have learned which brands of paint last and which paint doesn't last. I was extremely happy that they only use the top products from Sherwin and Williams which is the only paint I use. My bid considering all of the prep work, trim and cost of paint was more than fair. The painters where wonderful to work with! I took a special interest in each of their life goals and studies. They were so polite and articulate. A real difference from your local painters! I was proud to help support them as I love that College Works Painting supports young students in their program and gives them the ability to both pay for school and build their resume to be leaders in their fields when they graduate. They were fast, put up with change orders, didn't leave a mess behind them, and my house is now beautiful. I would highly recommend them.

My experience with College Works Painting has been excellent. Summer was very professional and followed up with me daily while the work was being done. We had a special circumstance where our paint peeled off our house because we sprayed fire retardant on it for a wildfire. Summer consulted with a professional painter and even contacted the fire department to make sure the prep and paint was done correctly. She was very detail oriented when she did her walk through every day. Her staff was reliable , friendly, hard working and took pride in their work. I am very happy that I chose College Works to do our project. I trusted that they were doing the job, they cleaned up everyday, and quickly corrected any issues. They wanted to do a good job for me, not just get the job done. I highly recommend them.
