Our clients say

Laura Martin Bovard, Interior Designer, LMB Interiors

It’s hard not to stand on a rooftop and sing the praises of Catherine Baldi, principal of Arana Craftsman Painters. She’s sincere, authentic, professional, and kind. Their work is exquisite and clean. She and her staff always answer the phone, they fix anything on a job that ever goes wrong -- the need for which is rare because they are so good at what they do. She treats her employees like family; she brings people under her wing and grooms them and they stay with the company long-term. Over the years we have referred dozens of projects, interior and exterior paint and wallpaper jobs, and we look forward to referring dozens more.

Michael Knott

My experience with the Arana team was amazing. From beginning to end the process was easy and smooth and the results were great. I handed them the keys to my house, left for 10 days and came home to a beautiful “new” home. Would definitely recommend, especially for an old (20’s era) Craftsman home that needed a fair amount of repairs and prep.

Linda Millard

Ernesto and Catherine are running a top-rate painting business in the east bay - quality painting, great customer service and attention to detail. They did a beautiful job on our home; I recommend them highly.

Serina Johnson

Thank you for the absolutely terrific job from start to finish. We couldn’t be happier with the transformation you guys performed on the old – peeling paint. Everyone was friendly, professional & qualified, just like your references all said.

Kathryn Carroll

Arana Craftsman did a great job painting my bungalow house and back cottage. Great attention to detail, and easy to communicate with. They cleaned up every day. I get many compliments on the new paint job!
