Review by in Washington, DC
Excellent quality painting job. Only problem was they didn't show up on first scheduled day at 7:00 AM, allegedly because of bad traffic, and I had to call the ContraPro twice to get a status report. I finally had to go to work at 10:00 am, three hours late.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
It was very easy to work with Sam and his team. They were prompt and reliable, following through on all that they promised. Work was accomplished in good order, their team, including the on-site supervisor, Hector, was excellent, and accommodated all our requests. I would highly recommend them.

Review by in Washington, DC
Initial visit yielded an almost immediate (and very detailed estimate). They took the time to understand our expectations upfront. The initial logistics was a bit shaky, but when the painters arrived, they took the time to call me since I wasn't home to make sure we were aligned on what needed to be painted, even sending me pictures to ensure they had completed everything as asked. I really appreciated the painters giving me the option of hand-washing and painting same day instead of power-washing one day and then painting the next...

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
The initial call was responded to promptly. Sam arrived on time, had some great suggestions, understood the scope of work, went out to his truck and printed off a very professional proposal before he left. One of his crews showed up and did the interior painting of 1 floor in a single day, and the next day they installed new floor decking on the front porch and painted the exterior items on the house. Sam returned at the end and checked out the work and he responded promptly to all texts and emails in the course of the job. Really nice contractor!

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Sam the owner of the franchise was very professional. He was on time, friendly, and knew his business. His bid I thought was high, but I thought to have great painters would be worth it. We had a quick turn around time with only three days to do the painting. He was able to accommodate that schedule. His painting crew was running behind and so they started a day late, which was fine. It would still give us two days to get the painting finished. My husband and I did a lot of the prep work by taking down light and electrical outlet switches, we moved all the furniture to the middle of the room, and took down curtains. Because of all our prep work, which Centrapro was happy to do, we were just helping out, they were able to complete the job in one day. However, they were extremely rushed to get it done in one day and the work got really sloppy when it came about 6:00-7:00 in the evening. I thought we had two days, and wished they would have taken the time to slow down and not make so many mistakes. Our condo is downtown DC, and I thought they would get their own permits for parking, but they didn't, so I think they were not happy with the parking situation. The crew was very friendly, they did finally coordinate what the paint color should be - that was another mis communication. Probably about 85% of the job was done very well. However, when they wanted out of there in one day, the kitchen and front door area became really sloppy. They were willing to come out and fix the issues. I took pictures and sent to Sam, but we were out of days.
Response by Certapro Painters of Washington D.C.: Hi Robin, Thanks for your review! We always appreciate feedback as it helps us refine our business and our craft. I've spoken with Hector, your Job Site Supervisor, about your experience and we're working on ways to better manage quality control toward the end of the job - which means returning for another day of work if necessary. Our offer still stands to come back and complete the touchups you had pointed out. To schedule, you can call my cell phone or our office at 1-800-GO-CERTA. Thank you again for your business, Robin! I hope to have the opportunity to demonstrate to you what we've improved on your next painting project! Sam Lewis

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.



NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
