5.0 Annelies B. Portland, OR

I'm so impressed with this company. They are efficient and do a great job. Their quotes are so reasonable and their work is great. They have added trim to my outside windows as well as paint my whole house. I get lots of compliments from my neighbors!

5.0 John L. Clackamas, OR

Best job possible. Can’t ask for more. Paul is great.

5.0 Holly B. Oregon City, OR

They were very professional and kind. The quote was the most detailed I have seen in a long time. They were on time and did a great job. I will definitely use them again.

5.0 Jim B. Happy Valley, OR

Reasonable price, great communication and overall work quality. Inspired a lot of confidence that they could take care of all minor exterior repairs before/ during painting, and they did that with ease!

5.0 Paul E. Portland, OR

Carlos and his father are phenomenal at what they do! Carlos runs Fresh Start driven by his desire to satisfy his clientâ sâ needs and only get 5 Star reviews on the work Fresh Start does. Based on our recent experience with the painting of our home, Carlosâ goal was achieved. The attention Carlos took from the very beginning of the project - his initial visit to the house, discussion of the nature and scope of the work and then onto and through the prepping and painting was excellent. The bid price and adjustments needed were very reasonable, the work was done with attention to detail with everything done timely. In other words, a process and resulting product that rate nothing less than 5 stars!

5.0 William H. Portland, OR

Professional, family owned businesses. Quote and final price were competitive. Great communication and absolutely love the finished project. I think these guys went above and beyond what I expected, installing corner guards, replacing siding pieces that were damaged and no extra charges for additional paint details to make our home exactly as we asked. Other companies wanted to charge for each item. Very happy with company and would highly recommend.

5.0 Robin D. Fairview, OR

Service is all up fantastic!! Carlos is very timely with clear communication and follow through. His team provides flawless service and clean up! Lastly - the quote provided was very reasonable and chosen out of 5 other quotes received from other businesses. We ultimately went with Fresh Start because the quote was reasonable and communication spot on! I highly recommend Fresh Start, so many of our neighbors are also very impressed with the results!

5.0 Robin D. Fairview, OR

Carlos communicates timely and is very professional. He is ontime and cleans up everything before leaving for the day. Our home is approximately 2000 square feet and the project only took 2 days! Keep in mind - We went from a light color to dark so little to no priming and just a couple of dry rot spots, the amount of time of course depends on the overall job. Carlos pointed out the dry rot spots, provided a couple of options, and made the repairs himself, This father/son team are detail oriented and offer a very fair quote. My neighbors are very impressed and my husband and I are beyond pleased with the outcome.

5.0 Rhonda W. Happy Valley, OR

Carlos was dependable, on time and professional. His prices are fair, and when they came out to power wash before painting, he even noticed some dry rot and caulking that needed to be fixed. He did that for a very reasonable price and even washed some very high windows I couldnâ t get to since we bought the house eight years ago. I am so impressed and appreciate his professionalism and honesty. I will definitely hire Fresh Start painting again when I need the rest of my house painted or even the interior. Great experience!

5.0 Sven D. Lake Oswego, OR

Wow! This father-and-son team had gotten great reviews so I went with them. I'm so glad I did. I was impressed from beginning to end. These guys are real pros. Very efficient and reasonably priced. Carlos is a pleasure to work with. They repaired window trim and painted windows and facia boards on our house. Highly recommended. Sven D

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
