Very good job done by Doug and Jason Smith. Professional work at reasonable prices. Will use their services again if I need them.

Avoid this Nightmare!!! I contracted with this person to paint inside of first floor and power wash, stain and seal 3 decks including underside on August 24th and 26th. They also agreed to replace 2 boards on front deck which were uneven and I gave the a check for $200 for this. On Nov 2, the job is still unfinished, and they walked off the job. They hadn't finished painting the deck, painting underside of rear decks, didn't finish touch up painting inside, had stacked furniture 8 feet high and left, and didn't cleanup their mess. They also damaged my property when they said they couldn't fix the two boards on front deck after agreeing and when I said you agreed to do this and walked to my house they said were done with the job and left. After I was in the house I later discovered they threw a partially full gallon of paint on my deck and it dried damaging the deck which now needs re-sanding and painting rework. I called Red beacon who said they would send a demand letter to Contractor to finish and he would alert his supervisor (11/2). I they contacted the contractor giving them 48 hours to return to job or would declare the job abandoned as directed by Red Beacon and the CA State Contractor Licensing Board.. They didn't respond in 48 hours. These contractors were messy, unprofessional, emotionally unstable and threatening to the point where my wife feared for her life. Red Beacon offers a $500 guarantee on unfinished contractor work which is being reviewed, I filed a compliant with the CA State Contractors licensing Board who is conducting an investigation, the Better Business Bureau has been contacted as well. Pictures are available for all of the above facts.l. Save yourself a Nightmarish experience!

Doug & Jason did an excellent job putting an epoxy paint in my garage. They were always on time to arrive and finished the work as scheduled. I would highly recommend using their service.

Doug did a good job.

There were nice and very cordial when I had a paint matching issue - they were hired to do touch up but the paint did not match. I ran to the store twice but we were unable to fund a match. They told me after 1.5 hrs they had to go, which was ok However, I was a little surprised that they didn't try to assist or schedule a follow-up. They seemed to have a number of other jobs and didn't need my small one. They also criticized the work of the homebuilder in front of me (new home) which was not something I think a contractor should do with a new client. Also, they didn't bring in any plastic sheeting and used a t-shirt or similar small cloth under their feet when painting on my stairs. Again, it was just touch up and I'm sure they are very careful, but this a bit surprising. However, I do want to mention they were very knowledgeable and clearly skilled, with fair pricing.

I used Doug Smith and his son. Did a nice job and was affordable
by Mike from DANVILLE, CA on July 20, 2015
Initially, we played telephone tag--once we made contact with each other, the process went very smoothly. very small painting job. Doug and I negotiated a price we were both comfortable with. We set a day and time. Doug and his co-worker arrived on time, completed the job in a timely manner and cleaned the area afterwards. Pleased with the result and Doug is a good guy to boot.

Doug and son did an excelent job. Follow the schedule and completed on time. I am happy to recommend them. The garage floor that they painted looks very nice.

Doug and his son, Jason, came to my home to offer an estimate on an interior paint job. My first impression was a very down-to-earth, friendly, and good-hearted people. I was especially impressed that they were a father and son team; you don't see that much these days. Also I was impressed that the people that were going to do the job showed up at the initial meeting (as opposed to subcontracting for the job or hiring out employees for the job). I had several painters come bid but I chose Smith and Son. The whole job took 3 days. Each day, they arrived on time at 9 am and worked tirelessly and efficiently until around 2 or 3 pm. I was amazed at how fast and precise their paint lines were. I was also impressed at their knowledge, experience, and expertise. So they had the wisdom to know what to do as well as the physical strength to perform the job accurately. They helped to patch up and texture several areas. They also caulked a few areas that needed caulking. Above everything else, they never got paint on anywhere that wasn't supposed to get paint. The cleanup was great. Honestly, I could go on and on about how great they were. I didn't have to watch over them or worry about anything. I just let them do their thing. Now my 11 year old home looks like a brand new model home. Thanks again, Doug and Jason. It was a pleasure working with you. I look forward to hiring you for future jobs. All the best.

I have not been able to decide on the job I want done, but He was prompt in coming by to give me a bid. I will use him when I make up my mind.
by Marty from DANVILLE, CA on November 30, 2014
He was on time and basically did the job. However, there were wall gouges, poor cleanup of floor and fixtures, and paste still on the wall.
by Arlene from DANVILLE, CA on October 17, 2014
Doug and his son did a great job painting my kitchen cabinets and woodwork They were on time, professional and did a great clean up job as well. I would definitely use them again
by Ruth from HERCULES, CA on August 06, 2014
He worked hard and was very concerned and knowledgeable about ensuring that we had the right type of paint.
by Lane from SAN RAMON, CA on July 15, 2014
Very polite team and quality work. Will use again for any future needs.
by ralph from BRENTWOOD, CA on April 25, 2014
The painting quality was excellent and the price reasonable (2 bedrm ceilings and one bedrm walls 2 color and 2 coats, I supplied paint for $500). We had set a date for Monday but he called Sunday morning (I didn't listen to message til Monday morning that he couldn't come till Tuesday. So some inconvience since I had the rooms ready for paint. Overall I'm very pleased.

Smith & Sons are True Professionals. We have hired them several times over the past 10+ years and highly recommend their services. They are a family owned business with over 30 years experience, and IT SHOWS. They painted our home interior twice and also came back for some touchups we wanted later such as trim and accent walls. The work was always done on time, as expected, and the cleanup was pristine. Great price, service, communication, and just really, really nice people too! Thanks Doug & Jason!
