Review by in Wheeling, IL
Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
I feel very comfortable in recommending James Kirkpatrick Painting. Jim's price was very fair and the quality of his work was excellent. I had 3 rooms that needed painting and a quick time frame in which it need to be completed. He was able to get me scheduled right away and had it completed in 1 1/2 days. He was very neat and conscientious. He respected our property and cleaned up after himself which I greatly appreciated. And, in addition to the painting, he repaired some drywall cracks that he came across during his prep. He was easy to get along with and didn't give me any attitude which was a plus. I would definitely hire him again should we need more painting done. Thanks, Jim!

Review by in Richmond, IL
I hired Jim based on three factors; 1. He has over 25 years of experience as a professional painter. 2. His quotation was very fair compared to other quotes 3. Jim has outstanding glowing customer reviews. I was anxious to have the interior work completed as soon as possible. Although Jim is very busy he committed to schedule me in within 2 weeks or less. And 10 days after he made that commitment he called to schedule the time to begin work. He is true to his word. Jim estimated that the job would take 3 days but in actuality it only took 2 days because he starts early, early, early, like 7:15 AM. Both Jim and his partner, Matt began working the very moment they came in the house. In actuality they never took a break, never, just worked non stop, they are serious guys. They were both extremely careful to cover all my hardwood floors with drop cloths and and furniture with plastic sheeting. It's obvious that they are very careful. When the job was complete they cleaned up everything and left the house as neat as when they first came in. I only wish I could award more than 5 stars to Jim as the job he did was perfect in every way. I am extremely pleased. If you hire Jim you'll be able to tell immediately that he will only accept to do a perfect painting job for you as well. TIP: Before Jim started he mentioned on the phone that EVERYTHING should be taken off the walls. I did that including taking off the electric wall switch plates and virtually all of the furniture from the rooms except two large couches. When Jim first came into the house he conducted an initial inspection so as to see how much was or was not taken off the walls and furniture removed. He was impressed and by doing this for Jim he was able to start immediately without delay. By prepping the rooms as he requested both he and you can cut the time it takes to complete the job. I you hire Jim I assure you that you won't be disappointed.

Review by in Antioch, IL
Jim did a great job. We needed some dry wall repair on walls and ceilings and patching of some pretty significant cracks. He did a fantastic job of taping and repair. He then painted several rooms and ceilings, upstairs and down and painted all of our window and door trimming on the outside of the house. The trim was very detailed requiring 3 colors and fine detail work of the rosettes on each corner of the trim which Jim did with an artist brush. It was fantastic. His prices are very reasonable and Jim is very professional in his manner and his work. We will certainly call him again for any future projects. Lynn S. Antioch, IL

I highly recommend James Kirkpatrick Painting for all of your painting needs. Jim did an excellent job completing my painting project. While I also had 2 other estimates done for the same project, James Kirkpatrick Painting was hands down the best option with being half price compared to the other 2 quotes I was given. Thanks again Jim. The rooms look GREAT! I'll definitely highly recommend you to anyone I know needing some painting done.

Project: Paint, Varnish or Stain Interior Surfaces
Jim was very thorough and meticulous in his work. I requested that all my trim be painted and he did an outstanding job, even though it was very tedious. He completed his work every day at a reasonable time and did a good job on all the rooms, ceilings and hallway. Very courteous and respectful of our belongings and living space.
