TestimonialsWe called Progressive Painting last fall for an estimate. Because we waited until the fall to get the estimate, our paint job had to begin in the spring. We were first on the books when the weather warmed up. Thomas and his team arrived on the day and time as promised. At the end of each day, Thomas would email us with the progress made and to see if there were any questions. Of the work we've had done in the past, we've never had a daily email/progress report. The job was completed on time and it looks wonderful. We are so pleased and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a painter. They have also worked on two bathrooms in our house and they look great!

My husband and I recently had a large portion of our home painted by Progressive Painting and were extremely impressed by this company. They painted the interior walls, ceiling and trim in our foyer, living room, kitchen, laundry room, and family room. They also painted the upstairs hallways and linen closet. We had them replace some decayed wood trim outside - garage side door and two windows.
From the time of the initial meeting to the close of the project all dealings were very professional, yet still friendly and helpful. Thomas Privette (owner) was accessible and hands-on. He stopped by every day to do a 'quality check' on his crew's work. The head of our painting crew, Jose, made sure our home was kept clean; sweeping and vacuuming every night. They moved all our furniture to the center of each room, wrapped it in plastic, and laid tarps on the floor. Then they used painters' blue tape to mark off and protect all the trim. They started both the project and their daily work on time and as projected, putting everything back in place as a room was finished. I especially like the contract and preparation package they gave us. Clearly explained what they would do and what we needed to do to prepare the rooms for them; basically, keep hooks/nails/fasteners in place unless we wanted the holes filled. We would most definitely recommend this company to anyone - high quality work!

Our home had areas of peeling paint and some wood rot. Thomas came promptly to go over work needed and give me a written estimate. Expecting to detect additional areas needing repair as the work progressed, we agreed on those being done on a time-and-materials basis. As the work progressed, Thomas kept in close contact through email and visits, always letting me know the status of the work and any problems encountered. I have used many painters over the years. This is the best experience by far and I cannot imagine hiring anyone else. The work was meticulous, the price reasonable, the crew pleasant, and the whole operation thoroughly professional.

I hired Progressive Painting to paint my two-story family room, second floor, stairwell leading to second floor, and entry way. They also cleaned out my gutters. Thomas came out himself to provide the estimate. His wife Lindsay schedules the appointments and she is very nice, got back to me right away. The estimate was exactly what I expected, I have a two-story family room and entry way, and I picked out a different color for each area. On the days scheduled for painting, the crew showed up right on time, thoroughly prepped each area they were working on, and cleaned up afterwards. While they painted, they repaired any nail pops, separations in the crown molding, or seam separations, all of that was included in the price. They did a wonderful job, and it was worth every penny. When I was searching Angie's List for somebody to clean my gutters, Progressive Painting came up because they did that when doing exterior work. I called Lindsay basically at the last minute and asked if they could do that for me and it was no problem! I would definitely hire them again, and I have recommended them to several of my friends who are going to be needing painting services in the future. My husband and I built our house a year and a half ago, and have dealt with lots of contractors in the past which can be a complete pain in the neck, but Thomas & Lindsay are the best and made this the easiest thing I've done for my house.

I cannot speak highly enough of this painting company; they do superior work from start to finish. This is the second time I've used them for painting. I got an estimate within a week of my call and was scheduled immediately for a date three weeks out. I received a detailed memo outlining the work to be done in detail along with suggested tips on readying my house for the work. My project took about 10 days to complete. The crew was polite and accommodating and they cleaned up every day. Thomas Privette, checks the crew's work at least every other day, and sometimes daily. He and his wife Lindsay, who serves as his very capable office manager, are easy to reach and very accommodating. Thomas emailed me daily with progress reports and to ask any questions that may have arisen. His attention to quality is extraordinary. He redid the stair risers at no charge to me because he thought the polyurethane had yellowed the white (his own decision on the quality). He also redid the railings to make them feel smoother, again at no charge. He replaced the the base trim on the deck railings with a man-made material so they wouldn't rot again; his suggestion. He even cleaned up the garage of all the paint we no longer use. I only wish I could hire them for everything.

McLean, VA

We had our deck sealed two years ago by an outfit that didn't know what they were doing. I met with Thomas Privette, one of the owners, who suggested several ways to address the problem. In the end, belt sanders were used to remove the old product, thus preserving the considerable landscaping around the deck. They did a beautiful job refinishing, the color match is perfect, and damage to plant life was minimal. In addition, a lot of exterior trim painting was done. The prep work was excellent as was the finished project. A WONDERFUL job. On the first day, we met with Thomas and went over the entire job. He visited the job every day thereafter, to include after job completion to inspect the work of his 3 man crew, about whom I cannot say enough positive things. They were always on-time, kept us informed of their progress, asked questions if they were unsure about what we wanted and were always polite and well dressed. I would have no trouble leaving the house with them here. They were wonderful. All in all, a super job. I will use them again, every time I need something done around here which is in their area of expertise
