      Painting your house while you are living in it is disruptive and difficult. Harold listened to what we wanted and put together a realistic and fair price. The crew painted our entire townhouse interior in 7 days. There was a lot of drywall repair to be done. They made sure our bedroom was usable throughout the process. They work on Saturday to keep things moving. The crew was careful to cover new floors and carpet. They were responsive if we saw something we wanted touched up. Very pleased with the result.

      I contacted Howard's Painting to help out with a tricky skylight trim and paint project. I was completely impressed by Will, the employee they sent to handle this job. He arrived on time, paid close attention to workplace protection and cleanup, and worked with me closely to do the job exactly as I wanted it. We're very happy with the end product and that we found Harold's!

      I contracted Mr. Howard to renovate my late father's 70-year-old house and get it ready to be put on the market. He did an excellent job. His crew performed tasks in a timely and professional manner. He gave me sound advice on products and colors based on his many years of experience. He was always clear about the costs of services and provided details on what the services included. In the end, my late father's neighbors were extremely complimentary of the work that was done, and I sold the house within the price range I wanted. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!

      Frequently Asked Questions

      The difference between these two is that stain seeps deep into the wood while paint does not. For exterior jobs, using a stain will result in the product fading over time rather than peeling. When the exterior of a house is peeling that means that a latex paint was used. Using a latex paint is not bad: all that means is that the product is masking the house, sealing it from the elements, rather than seeping into the wood. For interior, the only time you would use stain is to give your trim a natural wood finish look. This technique can be complicated and tricky if not done right, because this would generally be done with an oil stain.
      Before even taking out a paint brush or sander we take all objects off of the walls and bring all the furniture into the middle of the room. Once this is done, all furniture is covered in clean plastic to protect it from dust, paint, and other particles. Finally, the entire work floor area is covered in a canvass drop cloth to prevent any spillage onto the floor or carpeting.
      Not for Harold Howard’s Painting Company! We are experienced in drywall installation and repair, and minor repairs can be done as part of the paint preparation process.
