Exceptional. So rare to deal with a very intelligent, reasonable and amiable pro. Mr. Bermann is patient and careful: willing to explore options critically to eventually come up with the most effective plan. Totally reliable and dedicated. And Mr. Bermann came up with ideas and solutions that other contractors were unaware of. Two complicated projects already completed: a deck; house walls in bad disrepair.
Response by American Painting: .It's wondeful to feel so appreciatted! It takes one to know one, thanx!

UP: I wanted an immediate start and he started next day. Marcelo & his painter were highly skilled. DOWN:I wished they would have laid down more cover-up materials for my peace of mind.
Response by American Painting: Ray is right, the plastic tarp I used had hardened paint from a previous job that fluffed-out onto his patio stones. Though I did comp him worth $100+ and power-washed the area to remove any remaining debris it would've been more professional on my part not to put him through the hassle in the first place!

the quality of work was excellent, he was professional, timely and gave us a very reasonable price
Response by American Painting: A wonderful couple, probably the best looking couple that's ever hired me, even their pets were wonderful, hard work but totally worth it, we need more people like that!

Review by in San Diego, CA
I was very pleased with the way Marcelo handled our initial conversation regarding the cost estimate - rather than needing to schedule an appointment for an estimate on our small inside project, he was able instead to give what I considered to be a fair and reasonable figure, and as a result we set instead an appointment for him to begin work the following day. He and his assistant arrived on time and began working immediately, finishing about half of the project that day, then Marcelo returned to finish the next day. His advice, expertise, prep work and attention to detail would make me call him for our next painting need. VERY NICE JOB!
Response by American Painting: I found this customer very open and helpful, with a quick grasp of how to make the job go smoother and a keen sense of elegance...

Review by in San Diego, CA
Marcelo very concerned about customer being pleased with job. Worked at times of our convenience. Job came in on time and at negotiated cost. Particularly good assistance was provided in finding colors to complement existing ones. Would recommend American Painting to anyone. The most complicated yet least hassled project of our move from New Jersey. Bob Riley

Review by in La Jolla, CA
Marcello is a nice guy who is attentive to detail. The place looks great!
Response by American Painting: This job was a whole-condo re-touch that needed freshening-up prior to renting, the previous painter had to be called back 5 x due to bad performance...I went out of my way to get a perfect match over using the watered-down paint used previously, I enjoy pleasing my customers...

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.
