Robert and his crew were terrific. They were very attentive to detail and easy to work with. They never cut corners and instead went above and beyond with my house painting. I enjoyed having them in our house and would definitely recommend them without reservation.

Review by in Pasadena, CA
I was working on a tight timeline just before the holidays, and Robert called me back immediately -- within minutes. It was astonishing given the slower responses of other professional painters that I reached out to for estimates. He was professional, personable and knowledgable about every aspect of the painting job I needed to schedule. So it's no surprise that the project was completed quickly and with the highest attention to detail. I am new to the Pasadena area, and Robert was a treasure trove of helpful information about electricians and other local professionals that I needed to contact in order to get the house ready to move in on time and without issue. He is the master of "extra mile" effort, and I would hire him (and his team) again without any hesitation. When everything else about our move seemed to be so painfully difficult, it was a breath of fresh air to work with Robert and his team. They are trustworthy professionals committed to excellence.

Robert and his team were very quick with the project. Robert met with us as soon as we contacted him and started the job within a couple days. They painted the interior of our two-story house - most of the rooms needed to be painted - they also removed unneeded fixtures that were left behind by the previous owners. The house looks great.

Review by in Valley Village, CA
Didn't give a full 5 stars as I had to call Robert three times to set up this job after he promised to call me back after my first 2 calls, yet didn't. However, once we got past the initial bad customer service, their service markedly improved. And the painting was completed quickly and professionally. I was very satisfied with the work. I would use the company again.

Robert Haines and his crew, Steve and Glen at Expression in Color are fantastic. I am so glad I selected them to paint my house. They did an excellent job. Robert really listened to what I wanted and also had terrific suggestions and ideas for color and design. Such experts in what they do - on time, on schedule and on point. I could not be more pleased with the work that they did and how my home turned out. Thank you Robert!

Review by in Los Angeles, CA
Got a few quotes for the interior of the house to be painted and ceilings and Robert Haines was the most personable! He explained what he was going to do and started the next day. It was December 23rd so thought it was going to be delayed but he and his guys worked diligently and exceptionally to get the job done. Was very impressed with the work and crew. T hey were very professional and cleaned up at days end. I would recommend them highly to anyone. If you are looking for a painter, Robert is your man! He does what he says he is going to do and you will be happy with the results! A very honorable man!

I selected Robert Haines and Expression in Color because of the excellent reviews they received on Home Advisor. Now I would like to add my voice to the chorus of enthusiastic reviewers. When I first met Robert, I was impressed with his professionalism, his knowledge, and his ideas about possible color schemes for the rooms he was going to paint. When he came with his crew, Steve and Glen, they all arrived on time, and Steve and Glen set about prepping everything in short order. They completed the job even earlier than expected, and everything was perfect. As another reviewer said, don't look elsewhere, "these guys are professional, courteous, and dependable". Not only that, their overall expertise and knowledge about what they are doing is unsurpassed. They were very neat and careful about it all. If there were more than 5 stars, I would give them.

Review by in Fontana, CA
Was very happy upon completion of the job. Robert and his crew were very professional, very nice, showed up when they said they would. They were very considerate of my German Shepherd when she needed to go to the bathroom outside. They painted the trim and the exterior of the house. It is beautiful and I would recommend them to everyone.
