What Our Clients Say

5 Star Review - Arana Craftsman Painters Jeanne H.
I used Arana Craftsman Painters to repaint our stucco house and am very happy, even several years later. I had delayed and delayed the paint work (for years – some of my window trim was nearly naked) and the amount of prep that was required was substantial. They did a fantastic job in all respects. Their bid for you will be on the higher end compared to others, but they are there as long as it takes and don’t cut any corners. (I’ve heard horror stories of low-ball paint bids that go wrong when the prep time exceeds expectations). I was actually out of town when they did the prep and my neighbors on both sides were observing and later told me how impressed with the level of detail that went into the prep. Once I returned, they did a great job fixing the aesthetics of prior poorly done, large and unsightly stucco repairs (probably from the ’89 earthquake) prior to the actual painting. Be sure to tell them during the estimate visit if you are planning on dark or deep colors, and if you are excessively particular like I am. Their team is quite charming and professional! They honor their warranty and check back in every year or so to make sure that the work is holding up as expected. I would definitely hire them again! read more
