Here are some before and after pictures of a job I took over because the other self proclaimed painters got in over there head. They were getting over spray over everything, bypassing most all of the preparation stages such as thorough masking, caulking and patching the many nail holes in the siding that were left behind on the original paint job. The home owner was not even happy with the color. The previous painters had an un approved color on there house, there roof, there back patio, plants and windows by the time they had got home from work at the end of the day.
This was the customer’s comments on Yelp when we were finished (Which
                 somehow got filtered)

Gazebo (Before) exterior wood staining, House painter, Castro Valley Painting ContractorGazebo (Before) exterior wood staining, House painter, Castro Valley Painting ContractorWe used Advanced Painting Systems for external painting of our primary home in Union City, CA. We had other painters who messed up our house with drips of paints everywhere in our house. When Gary of Advanced Painting Systems came to inspect and give us estimate, the house was partially painted with tapes and plastics everywhere. Gary gave us a very reasonable estimate and scheduled to start work in a couple of days. From day one, we could see how serious a professional he was. He was very meticulous in his work and started doing more things than we expected. (Yes, we have had one bad luck after another with service providers. It was delight to see this for a change.)

But what impressed us most was how easy Gary was to talk to. He was patient in answering our questions, leading us through paint selection, and even touring other homes in the area to see colors that appeal to us.

We are very impressed and pleased with Gary. It is very rare to find a great professional with this degree of understanding and customer orientation and reasonable price. I didn't have an account on this site. I just created it now for writing this review. This shows how compelling and great his services was for us. Go with Gary and you will find one of the best professionals you ever had.

I do agree with you.. Using unlicensed painters cheap priced services can actually ruin the condition of our homes.

Changing one's mindset towards their work is hard to do. A sudden shift in our mental wiring takes a lot of persistency and change. Our attitude towards work is hugely affected by a lot of other factors in life. We should always try to avoid these factors because they can never help our case. I hope that more people would find that changing your mindset is a huge move to do if you want to increase your productivity in the workplace. on Wednesday, March 05, 2014 5:48 AM

Well it is off topic and about a year late in responding but that's okay. I'm trying to become more of a teacher now. Your question motivates me to get back to what motivated me to blog in the first place. Basically I take a lot of pictures of what I love doing for a living and describe the process it took to make the transition from before to after. Hope that is helpful

Also my personal!!! You might be merely far too true to be great. How will you be capable of write and investigation about like amazing things? You have prompted us to be effective more difficult right now. My partner and i will try as much as possible to take pleasure from existence towards the fullest and grow satiated while using amazing stuff that remain us, which usually I have been unacquainted with so far.

For avoiding from such loss I am sure that hiring a professional could be the only idea that I am having in my mind right now. On the other side if you are willing to make saving than you should paint yourself.
