Description of work: They painted the outside of our 1886 Eastlake Victorian in San Francisco. Did all the repair of old wood, etc., and did an exceptional job. Way above average or even expected. Kieron McCartney is the most professional person and was just a delight to work with. Always on time. If he said he would be there at a certain time, he was there. NEVER late. I felt his price was very fair and the work was exceptional. Even had a couple of neighbors looking at what he repaired the decayed wood with and they were very impressed. Said he used the highest quality materials. Kieron even videotaped the work up above that he did without my prompting so we could see what he did. I highly recommend his company. His workers were equally as kind and professional as Kieron. Very clean job site. Every day they cleaned up and left things neat and tidy. I was so impressed with the work they did that we gave them a thousand dollar bonus after the job was completed! Comments: The job was exceptional! We highly recommend them. He did such a good job that there was no stress or worry involved on my part as far as hoping I made the right decision. Truly hard to put in words what a wonderful job they did!

Description of Work: Entire exterior and interior of house. Deck and exterior stain. Comments: I have engaged Kieron McCartney for 20 years. He has worked on three different houses for me, as I have had to move three times in the last 20 years. I cannot say enough good things about Kieron. He is an expert at color matching, knows how to choose the best products for a particular job, shows up when he says he will, does very thorough prep work so that the paint lasts, protects everything very carefully, and is scrupulously clean.

Description of Work: McCartney Painting painted all the interior walls of our 1100 sq ft condo as we are preparing it for sale. We crafted a specific approach where we were painting the walls, but leaving the crown molding and base boards unaffected. In addition, McCartney Painting is working with us to do touch-up painting as needed after various other repair work and staging. Comments: Our experience with McCartney Painting has been a good one. Kieron met with me to do an initial assessment and it was clear from the beginning that this was going to be a good team to work with. Kieron's proposal and estimate were very professional, complete and targeted a workable budget for us (it was important for our situation that we hire licensed and insured contractors and McCartney Painting was able to meet our needs on all levels). Kieron and his team are very friendly, punctual and willing to work with us on an agressive timeline. Upon arriving for the first day, I met the entire crew and felt comfortable with everyone. As the work proceeded I was pleased to see that Kieron was personally involved in the day to day onsite management of the crew. Their attension to detail, helpful input to my questions, and care for my home made me feel like I made a good decision for the painting work. I defintely look forward to using McCartney Painting again in the future. Thanks!

Description of work: Paint exterior of multi-story house, pergolas and shed. Included surface preparation work (power-washing, caulking, priming, minor repairs), 3 color paint (base, trim, doors). Excellent base color matching and custom-mixed trim color coordination. Comments: Every once in a while, one finds a contractor or service provider that is truly outstanding, from start to finish. McCartney Painting (AKA: Tri-Color Painting) stands among such a small, but elite group. Our multi-story wood house (improperly and incompletely painted years ago) needed to be painted. Paul came out to give us a bid, and helped guide us towards the proper paint selection and preparation options. Paul is exceptionally easy to work with, accommodating, and professional at all times. The bid was more than fair, which we accepted and scheduled. When we had to reschedule due to some repair work, McCartney accommodated our needs. Preparation work started and went as expected, with the team working around the severe storm that swept through the Bay Area. We requested additional elastomeric caulking be completed (on a T&M basis) on all wood siding nail holes, and McCartney again accommodated our needs, despite what was probably a 3 to 5 day hit to their schedule. They worked Saturday and extra time to accommodate us. As we had not selected the exact paint colors (base, trim), Paul stepped up and selected the base color (a richer, more lustrous version of our existing base color), and blended numerous variations of trim color, to help soften the existing harsh, stark white. The final color choices are wonderful, and we are indebted to Paul for making this happen. I see the trim color and can't help think of Vanilla. The base color painting went smoothly, primed where necessary, with proper overlap and thickness. Hardware was removed, non-paintable surfaces masked. Trim priming and painting was very carefully completed, with lines properly and clearly cut. The crew helped determine trim cut lines around window casings / pergola areas for best appearance. The crew also took care of ensuring that items around the shed and house were cleared away, to provide unrestricted access to surfaces to be painted. The front door, garage door trim, and door thresholds were painted black, and look fantastic. As an additional item, 3 interior door thresholds were varnished with a high quality marine varnish (another item on my To Do list for ages). I had asked Paul to inspect the house surfaces for dry rot and termite damage during preparation and painting. Paul alerted us to a some minor damage, which we scheduled for immediate repair. The team worked around the affected areas, until the repairs were completed. And of course, the site was left clean each day. It was clear to me upon first meeting Paul that we were in good hands; McCartney Painting exceeded our expectations in all ways. I was sick with the flu during the work, and felt I wasn't going to be able to attend to matters as I would have liked; Paul and the team relieved my stress, and proved that my initial instincts about Paul and McCartney were accurate. We'll hire them again for our interior shortly. You should too.

Description of Work: We contracted with Kieron McCartney to paint the exterior front, rear, and side of our home. This included prep work to remove the peeling paint on the wood siding and stucco, and trim surfaces. They power washed the surfaces, and scraped and sanded the wood siding. Kieron first applied a sealer to the stucco, then an elastomer coating on the stucco and siding, and then a top coat to the siding and stucco to preserve the surfaces. They spent a lot of time on the prep work and the painting was perfection! We noticed an exterior door that needed painting that was not included in the original quote. Kieron varnished that door himself and added a minor amount for the service. Comments: Kieron was courteous and professional throughout the job. He was on the job site every day checking with the crew and their work. The crew cleaned up each day and arrived each morning on time and ready to work. We had received two other bids and McCartney painting was within $200 of a bid that didn't include the power washing or the sealing coat of paint. Kieron's work was beyond our expectations. We had confidence in Kieron from the first day we met him that he would provide the quality of work that our home required. He is only satisfied when the customer is happy with his work. McCartney Painting is bonded and insured. We are pleased to recommend his quality work to our neighbors and family.

Description of Work: Interior painting of my entire apartment --- ceilings, doors, walls, woodwork. Comments: In one word -- EXCELLENT! I initially placed a call asking to schedule an estimate for interior painting to my apartment. I received a very prompt and courteous response from Kieron McCartney and the schedule was set. Greg came to my apartment and was very willing to hear all of my likes/dislikes and desires for the job. He was extremely patient and courteous, as well as very helpful in providing 'no pressure' suggestions for things I had not even thought of! Greg actually performed the work himself -- arrived the first day exactly at the agreed upon time. After going through another review of the job at hand, the work began. Greg was very easy to work with (I admit ... I am very particular and am not shy about asking questions, in order to make sure my expectations match the work being performed), and even called me as he began to paint the walls to ensure that the color being used was satisfactory (sometimes they do look different once they are on the wall!). I very much appreciated that detail --- rather than simply going ahead with the job and then being upset that the color did not appear as I had imagined. Kieron was very communicative and checked in with me to make sure that the job was progressing to my liking and that all things were going well. I found both Kieron and Greg to be extremely flexible, patient, VERY CLEAN and NEAT and respectful of my living space. I would eagerly recommend McCartney Painting to anyone who requires painting services. The service, quality, price, neatness, friendliness and end result exceeded my expectations. Whenever I need additional painting services or when I hear of others looking for painting, my highest opinion will be that McCartney Painting is truly the best option!

Description of Work: Exterior of home prepped and painted. Comments: Exterior of my home painted by McCartney Painting. I can not tell you how happy I am with the job they did. Excellent prep work and attention to detail. When I would arrive home from work and McCartney Painting was done for the day, paint chips/scraping where swept up, painting supplies neating set aside...... exceptionally neat. Its nice to have someone work on your home you can trust and cared about your input. Plan to have McCartney Painting do some interior painting and would highly recommend. Kieron also recommended someone to do miscellanies items such as new house vents and electrical box repair at my request.

Description of Work: Painted interior walls for 6 rooms and 3 bath rooms, Painted all doors, door frames, fireplace, baseboards. Painted 1 front door and 2 exterior vents. Fixed all holes and previous damages on the baseboards and on walls. Filled in all gaps previously created during ventilation fan installations in the bathrooms. Comments: Greg and JP did a fantastic job. Each room took 1 to 2 days to complete. This gave us time to move all of our stuff out into the adjacent room allowing us to actually "live" in our house while the project was being done. They helped us move all the heavy objects in the room. They even helped hang our over sized paintings back on the wall after they finished painting. My wife and I highly recommend them.

Description of Work: Exterior painting of the front of our home including lots of prep work for badly worn wood siding. Comments: Great. Went very smooth. Paul, the foreman, came out within a day or two of our request for a bid. Formal and very detailed bid arrived by email within a week and job was begun within 2 weeks of our acceptance of the bid. The price wasn't the cheapest bid we received but close to it and a lot cheaper than some of the higher bids. The afternoon before they we able to start, they called to see if that day worked for us. It was a bit of a surprise not to get a bit more notice before they were planning to start, but it really didn't matter since they didn't need access to the interior. Job was completed in 4 days and involved a lot of prep work. Paul left us a color wheel and helped us decide on the front door color. They were willing to work a few hours on the weekend, which we really appreciated, since the front door had to be left open to allow the paint to dry for a few hours.

Removed old caulking in eves and sealed gab between foundation and exterior walls; painted exterior walls, trim and front door. Comments: Kieron, Greg and his assistant are very pleasant to work with. From first contact to the completed project the overall experience was positive one. Kieron kept us updated on their status and even assisted us in finding a contractor to replace a fascia board and side door.

Description of Work: Waterproof exterior and repaint 3 story house. Comments: This is a great Company to work with. McCartney Painting did a fantastic job for us as it helps by working directly with the owner. Kieron really has a tremendous amount of expertise to not only understand the issues, but also communicate and define what he thought were the best solutions. we had some water intrusion issues and had numerous people come out and tell us what they thought the problems were. Kieron gave us his honest opinion and didn't try to push any unneeded products or services on us. His bid was very competitive and honest, and the job was top notch. Kieron's team had to caulk in between all of our siding and then prime and paint. The job went really fast and the work performed was top quality. I highly recommend working with McCartney Painting.

Description of Work: We hired them for two projects: 1) The first was to remove the 80s vinyl siding from our home and repaint the exterior. They helped coordinate the stucco repair, dry rot repair and anything else that was needed. They didn't scrimp and even used the proper base coats for the different colors. Their work looks amazing. 2) The second project was to paint a 4 story building - which required scaffolding and hanging from hooks off the side of the building. They arranged to have all the paperwork and notices complete for the project and I always felt that Kieron took steps to be safe and follow proper procedures. Kieron also suggested ways to make some of the project less expensive when some of it ended up more than anticipated (my misunderstanding). The entire project came in on budget. Comments: We couldn't be happier with McCartney Painting. The entire team is great to work with and they are consummate pros. The team is very courteous.

The crew was clean, friendly and thorough. I would definitely use them again.

Description of Work: Bleach and powerwash exterior stucco, scrape, sand and caulk wood windows and trim, prime and paint. Comments: Up until recently I've always done all the painting on my house, but it hadn't been painted in quite a few years and needed a lot of prep work. I currently didn't have the time to do it all myself so I decided to hire a painting contractor for the first time. I guess I'm a bit of a perfectionist (and a little tight on funds) so hiring someone else to do the work was a little tough. I wanted someone who understood how I would like things done and KNOWS painting, and how to work around San Francisco Sunset District's crazy weather. After reading all the positive testimonials on Angie's List, I decided to add McCartney Painting to my list of three contractors for bids. They came in at the middle bid, a bit closer to the higher end than the lower but I wanted a good job and I'm always skeptical of people who promise a great job at too low of a price. Mr. McCartney was an easy going person to deal with and was patient with all my pain in the neck “can you do it like this” requests. His crew was very polite and cleaned up well at the end of each day. There seemed to be a lot of attention to detail and no rushing through the job. There were a couple mis-communications and minor things but they were immediately attended to without a problem. At 5 months after they finished, my house looks great and gets many compliments from neighbors, one of which has hired Kieron and Co. to paint his house.

Description of Work: Painted almost entire interior (walls, trim, ceiling) of large flat in the Marina district. Comments: I called McCartney Painting for an estimate based on the positive reviews here on Angie's List. The owner, Kieron McCartney, returned my call very quickly and we scheduled an appointment for the estimate within 24 hours. He was very professional and a great guy—and continued to be a really good person to do business with. I received his estimate within a few hours of the appointment. It was about $1300 higher than another bid from another well-reviewed painter, and he quickly agreed to match the lower price. He was very flexible in scheduling the work (I had other work to be done in the flat first), and, once work began, his painters did very exceptional work over the course of about six days. There was some additional paint clean-up needed after they finished, and he addressed this work extremely professionally and efficiently. I recommend this company without hesitation, and will call on them again when it comes time to have my own flat painted.

Description of Work: I needed to have the front of my house repainted. The house has a faux grey stone veneer, and wooden trim around the windows and doors. The following was done: - power washing of the stone to remove the black dust generated by cars brake pads, and applying two coats of sealant. - sanding of all previously painted surfaces - repairing and caulking around windows, doors and barge boards below the roof - one coat of primer and one coat of paint on the window and door frames and wooden shutters. They provided sub contractors for the following services: - a scaffold needed to be erected since it is a three story house - a carpenter installed a small trim around the windows and eight shutters. - price shown above includes painting+scaffolding+carpentry Comments: Kieron McCartney was very receptive to the type of work and look we wanted. He took the time to explain what he was going to do but did not push any unnecessary work. His crew was very friendly and took the time to explain what they were going to do every day. They were agreeable, easy to work with and ready to give us their opinion on our color choices. Kieron McCartney did not make me pay for the third coat of painting wherever it was needed. The neighbors really like the colors scheme and complimented on the work done. The sealant on the stone was a change order but it will allow me to rinse the stone once a year to clean it and not to have to power wash it. They work fast and in a timely fashion.

Description of Work: Priming and painting of new built in cabinets (bare wood), and repainting of living room walls. Filling, sanding and caulking as necessary. I had Kieron and his assistant JP back last week to repaint my living room, because we had custom built in cabinets installed just before Christmas. We decided to redo the walls at the same time, as we didn't like the color we chose back in early 2008. Comments: We just had new built-ins custom cabinets built on either side of the fireplace in our living room. Kieron and his crew did justice to the craftsmanship, spray painting the wood for a wonderfully smooth finish, and hand painting the walls and retouching the picture rail and window trim. The final result looks amazing.

Description of Work: They painted my bedroom while I was on a business trip. Very accommodating about scheduling (even with a last minute request) so this work could be done while I was away. They also painted my living room. Both rooms look great! I had reseeded my lawn right before I left on my trip and don't have sprinklers. They watered the lawn every day while I was away. Both the lawn and the paint look great! Comments: Kiernan is very easy to deal with. No stress.

Comments: Was able to fit in the job quickly, since we were trying to get this done before the rains started. Power washed the deck and stairway, took the initiative to contact neighbors to clean up stray paint chips that landed in their backyards during power wash. Great work repairing and replacing some of the wood that was past its prime, beyond what I expected. Very nice job painting, smooth looking, all sealed. Nice clean up as well.

Repaired and bondo-ed the surfaces first. Comments: Kieron (owner) is great and responsive, as is his crew. Contacted him via email, and he gets right back to you with an estimate. Shopped the job around to his other high-end competitors on Angie's List, and he came in much lower than 3 of them.

Description of Work: They painted the walls and ceiling (and patched and smoothed the wall) of our garage and new laundry room. Comments: Everything went very smoothly. Kieron and his crew came out to look at our place, and were very punctual. They were careful to cover everything with tarps so as not to get paint on our new tile floor, and did a nice job of filling in holes and gaps in our walls before painting. They were very meticulous about the painting, and as a result, everything looks great.

Description of Work: Painted exterior of three-unit, three story building. The $18,500 price included the cost of scaffolding and some wood restoration, though not the replacement of some siding, which was handled separately by a carpenter. Comments: Kieron was punctual, professional and responsive throughout a three week process. While it's hard for me to really judge the quality of the prep work, as this is the first time I've had to have a building painted, I can say that the building looks even better than I originally anticipated. The original paint was in very poor condition, and I can tell that the old, cracking and peeling finish had been sanded and removed to a far greater degree than had been done on some other buildings in my neighborhood, where I think folks skimped on the prep work. Kieron was helpful with color selection, started the job on time, and helped find a good, reasonably priced carpenter to help with the replacement of some rotting wood. He then finished ahead of schedule. Overall, I'm very happy with the whole job and would use Kieron's services again.

Description of Work: Painting the exterior of a duplex 1897 Victorian which had probably not been painted in over 15 years hence there was a lot of peeling paint. This included a very large completely exposed south facing wall which had been severely effected by the weather over the years. It also included two exterior enclosed porches which required a large amount of caulking and waterproofing. Once the job got going a lot of wood just started falling off and a lot of additional carpentry was needed to keep the building together. Comments: It went very well. I am at home during most days and being around the paint crew was painless. They are all very nice and respectful. Kieron is extremely easy to communicate with and would let me know of all the problems that were arising. Now my house looks much better and seeing wood just fall off (which the painters would then nicely fix) I now know that my building is in much better shape since the weather can no longer beat it down.

Description of Work: Painted in old Victorian with 14 ft. or so high ceilings living room, dining room and hallway. Removed all furniture including books and electronic equipment. Fixed all damage to ceiling, walls and woodwork using patching compounds, two part epoxy and urethane caulking. Repaired crown molding were missing. Removed old plaster that had water damage and re-plastered these areas. Applied two coats stain lock primer and two coats high quality acrylic latex finish to all surfaces. Replaced all furniture, books and electronics. Cleaned everything. Painted and caulked 27 brand new installed double-hung windows. Comments: I left the country for two weeks and entrusted them to get the house in better shape. When I returned my house looked like a whole new place. It was wonderful and stress free on my side. They really hustled to get everything done on time for my return which was amazing. The windows came in one week late and therefore they did not have that much time to paint all of them but still when I came home everything was done and looked perfect.

Description of Work: We hired Kieran and his crew to paint 2 rooms in our home (one small room and one large one) and a long hallway. Originally, we had hired him to paint the small room, which I imagine might have been too small a job for some contractors. But he gave us a quote and a referral to someone who could plaster our walls. And, he had someone (Alejandro) do the painting for the room relatively quickly. Because we were so pleased with the paint job in this smaller room, we asked Kieran to give us a quote on our hallway and living room/kitchen. The quote he gave us was very reasonable and the work (which required a lot of detail) was excellent. We were very, very happy with it. Comments: Overall, I can't recommend Kieran highly enough. The experience I had with him and his crew was one of the very best experiences I've ever had with a contractor; they were courteous, professional, thoughtful, skilled, and efficient. I will hire them back in a minute.

Description of Work: They were hired to paint the back wall of the house. It was not a flat wall, but had two bay windows which made putting up ladders difficult. They first powerwashed the back, then made extensive repairs to flashing and other damaged areas. They then got the back ready for painting and applied two coats. Comments: They could not commit to a specific date when initially hired, due to the weather conditions, both rain and fog which precluded painting. Once a window of opportunity opened up, they scheduled the job and got started promptly. They were able to set up in the back yard avoiding as much damage as possible to the plants, given the limited space and physical restrictions on where the ladders could go. They did their work efficiently and did it well. They cleaned up each day, minimized the impact on the household and finished when they said they would. They did a very nice job.

Description of Work: We have a two story, stucco home 1/8 mile from the Pacific Ocean, in Fog Town (San Francisco). The houses' front exterior was treated for severe rust (nails, pipes, gate, etc.), multiple stucco cracks (this is a home built upon sand dunes and in an earthquake zone) and painted with primer and three colors (each with double coats). Comments: Mr. McCartney and his crew of three regular employees were extremely professional. Timely, prepared, clean and conscientious about their craftsmanship and accurate detailing. I have had the house painted by at least seven different painting contractors, over the years, and no one has performed such fine workmanship. I am pleased to have found them and look forward to having them paint the back of the house next year. I highly recommend McCartney Painting.

Description of Work: Prep, repair, sanding, and painting of 1920s home we just bought that had been painted with what I'd call "open house paint" all walls and trim in the same staid cream and not high quality. Kieron agreed to contract at hourly rate since we weren't sure how much extra we'd end up adding on. That was smart, the project grew a bit as we went (we were told by the contractor that new paint has a way of making old paint look pretty bad and he was right!) and kieron's crew fixed a multitude of problems we hadn't realized our other contractors (construction, furnace, and electrical) had left in or on our walls! Comments: We bought most of paint (picked at paint store and kieron extended his discount to us) but they picked up correct primers for new drywall on some walls and for matching painted cabinets in kitchen. We had all ceilings, all trim and all walls upstairs painted using 3 different sheens and 8 different colors. We discussed which rooms and which colors each morning and they kept track of it all perfectly and everything went so smoothly. They fixed several places where our construction contractors or we had dropped the ball by leaving/making holes in the walls etc, in fact they were miracle workers in that category. I'd never thought beyond spackle, but clearly these macgyver's of painting know how to deal with poor surfaces, holes, mismatched trim and panels etc.. We could not have been more pleased.

Description of Work: We had all the walls and ceilings painted in our large living room and 3 floors of hallways which included 11 doors, all the trim and ceiling coving, and two bathrooms as well. There was a good deal of prep required as we hadn't painted these areas in over 20 years. In addition to the prep the walls and ceilings required a coat of primer and two coats of finish paint. Also the bathrooms were in pretty bad shape from all the years of humidity. Comments: Kieron and his crew of 3 did a great job. They were here about a week and worked everyday with just a half day interruption for another job. They used paper drop cloths which were excellent in protecting the floors and preventing paint being dragged around on peoples shoes (as the painting was done right in the middle of our house this was very important. They cleaned up every night and were very courteous, professional, and friendly. Kieron had very good suggestions about paints and painting which were very helpful. What ever we asked to be fixed with the prep and painting was done and with a smile. It did take them awhile to start the job as they have a lot of people wanting their services. But Kieron was ready to paint fairly close to his estimate of availability.

Kieron e-mail the proposal/cost. E-mail back and forth till we came up with a final agreement. His crew is always on time, hard working, good manners, did a good prep and painting job. Kieron only does one job at a time before working on another paint job, therefore he is always at the job site to supervise and oversee the whole paint job. Kieron told me that he has attended a school for painters. His painters always protect all areas not to be painted with suitable covers and taping. When the painter finished painting for the day, the grounds are neatly cleaned in a finished condition.

Plus, two large hallways. Five different paints. Comments: Kieron was extra careful about helping me choose just the shades I wanted for my house, proving multiple large painted sample boards and color charts. Kieron does a superb prepping job for old walls like those in my house. Much more than average. His men couldn't be more professional or polite. They take super precautions not to get paint anywhere other than where it's supposed to be. The painting work itself is excellent. Kieron stays in touch, and directly supervises his men. He truly cares about delivering great quality. He changed over to a higher costing product before starting my job, without revising his fee, just to do a better job. He's also personable, highly professional, and a genuinely concerned person; great to work with!

Description of Work: Two story home in Golden Gate Heights. The exterior of our home had not been painted for 18 years, so it needed major preparation work. We knew we had to choose our painting company very carefully. After four estimates, we chose McCartney Painting. His workers power-washed, sanded, & repaired the stucco and wood surfaces. They reglazed windows that were in poor shape. They applied one coat of Elastomeric water proofing compound. For the finish coat of paint, McCartney accurately followed the five-color design scheme Bob Buckter, colorist, and I had chosen, using the exact paint brands and colors specified by Bob Buckter. Comments: McCartney's employees were courteous and friendly. Their workmanship was of the highest quality and the work was completed on time. My husband and I were amazed at the professionalism and availability of Kieron McCartney.We wanted a small company, so we could have access to the owner himself. That's what we got. In reality, Kieron was the foreman on the job. He was on site at least four times daily and phone calls to him were returned within the hour. Working with him was a pleasure. We unconditionally recommend McCartney Painting Company.

Description of Work: Kieron and his team painted the interior of our 850 square foot flat before we moved in. The technique they use is with a sprayer, so the coat is evenly and clean. The trim was painted with a brush and in the tighter spaces (stairwell), rollers were used. They sanded and primed areas where it was needed. They also painted and sealed the exterior of the windows. Comments: Kieron and his crew were very professional. They arrived on time and worked fast and thoroughly. Our flat was empty, but they covered all of our floors and built-ins and cleaned up thoroughly. As usual, the work our contractors were doing was not exactly on schedule, so I needed to reschedule with Kieron several times. He was so easy-going, flexible and willing to accommodate our schedule. He works fast. What he estimated taking 5 days ending up only taking 2 with a larger crew and we were able to move in on our scheduled move-in date. Kieron is a pleasure to work with. Great customer service. He returns calls quickly and keeps on top of the project in the planning phase. He kept me posted during the project to let me know how it was going. We are happy with the results and we plan on calling McCartney Painting for our next painting project.

Description of Work: Cleaned, primed and painted exterior siding on West side of house; sanded primed with non-rust paint & painted exterior circular metal staircase; cleaned, chalked, primed and painted exterior windows on West side of house. Comments: Because we were working outside of the area at the time which we wanted to have this work done, Kieron was very flexible and was able to meet us within two days to discuss the project and make final decisions. He even took the time to call us after he had begun the project to give us an update and reconfirm exactly how we wanted it to be completed. He completed the job ahead of schedule even though he was extremely busy at the time and when we returned, one would never know that anyone had been at the house except that the exterior West Side looked brand new. Would highly recommend McCartney Painting Company. This was a rather difficult job as it was on a hillside and the condition of the area he painted was terrible, so it took a lot of prep work. Feel his price was reasonable for number of hours and work had to do.

Description of Work: We had the back wall of a three story building painting and sealed. As there is (was) a leak coming through the wall, special attention was needed to the caulking aspect. Comments: Our experience was great! Kieron and his crew were friendly, professional and punctual. The estimate was done in a timely manner. The work was completed just as described. The back wall looks great. They sealed up every little possible opening in flashing and along the siding. When they were finished, the area was cleaned, even nicer than before. I will definitely hire them again! Thanks, Kieron!

Description of Work: Repainted walls in dining room, living room and stairs/hallway and repainted all trim (time consuming process). Comments: Very pleased with the quality of their work and their professionalism. Will use them for all future painting. Job finished one day beyond original estimate but the painters worked overtime and Saturday to minimize impact on our life.

Description of Work: Painted the interior of a San Francisco flat that had not been painted in at least 15 years. Keiron and his crew prepped, primed and painted everything; all the ceilings walls closets, bathroom, kitchen and pantry, and cleaned up everything at the end of the job. Comments: McCartney painting did an excellent job. They properly and carefully painted everything and were great to work with. Keiron was always available to us and on-site every day supervising the work and making sure things went properly. The paint job came out beautifully and they cleaned everything up very thoroughly. Overall they transformed the flat into a bright beautiful place. We received a job worth more than what we paid for.

Description of Work: Kieron and his crew painted the entire interior (including ceilings, doors and inside closets) of my 1200 square foot house. Comments: The whole process was very smooth, and extremely efficient. The whole job was completed, from consultation/estimate to painting in under a week, ahead of schedule! The workmanship is excellent, and the workspace was left as immaculate as it was when they started. I would highly recommend Kieron and his crew, and will use them again in the future.

Description of Work: I asked them to do a high gloss finish on a number of walls- time consuming and exacting- and they did a fantastic job- very professional job. Comments: The owner- Kieron McCartney- came promptly and quickly after contacting him- to give me an estimate - he booked us immediately even though he was really busy. He and his crew began and finished exactly as scheduled and right on budget. He was willing to have about 40 custom samples made for me to choose from (my expense- but a lot of work for him). I was out of town while he worked on our house- and I came home to a job perfectly done, on time, and at the price of his estimate. I am an interior designer and found his work to be outstanding.

Description of Work: Prepared (sanded, repaired wood where needed, primed) and painted the exterior of a small penthouse office (approx 13' x 13'). The exterior was redwood siding from the 1920's that had water damage/rot in various places. Comments: Job was very well done and performed in the time estimated. Care was given to fix the areas of water damage and rot. During the estimate all of my questions were answered very competently. The quote was very fair for the work, not the cheapest quote but definitely not the most expensive. The best thing is the owner gives the estimates, and is one of the primary workers as the job is being done. This is great because what you talk about during the estimate is known to the work team through the entire job.

Description of Work: When looking for a company to paint our house, I placed calls to a few, but I received a call back almost immediately from McCartney Painting. Some other companies never even bothered to return my call. Kieron even came out on a Sunday to give us an estimate, since both my husband and I work. We had Kieron and his crew paint our house, trim, and doors (plus a small shed in the back for a modest additional fee.) We had mildew under our eaves, and this was pretreated with a bleach solution to prevent future mildew. They re-caulked windows as needed. He also made additional suggestions for little touch ups that we could do to improve the appearance of our home - all of which were easy to do and made a big difference. The crew was professional, friendly, quick, and did a great job. Comments: We are very pleased with the whole experience. Kieron was working on our house with his crew every day. They were able to begin work on our house earlier than initially projected, which was wonderful since the rain started the day after they finished. The house looks great. Kieron really knows what he is doing. He's a nice guy and a good businessman - honest, trustworthy, and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone.

Description of Work: Keiron painted my newly installed windows, interiors only, about 20 windows in all. Comments: A fabulous experience. I work from home, and usually dread the distraction of having work done on the house. Keiron said he could get the job started while we were away - and I came back and the entire job was done! He does an excellent job setting expectations - he knows that people don't like surprises. He's calm, organized, and gave me a stress-free experience. The windows, by the way, look fantastic. The best painting I've ever seen.

Description of Work: Totally prepped and painted front of house, entry stairwell walls, garage and side doors, windows on three sides of house. Comments: McCartney Painting did a gorgeous job on our house. Kieron informed us about everything we needed to know including type of base coat; we now know that our paint job will last 12-15 years and we know why! His sense of color and artistry added small touches that complemented and perfectly finished the job! The paint crew was always on time and always courteous. The job actually took less time than we thought and we were never bothered by a paint smell, something I'd been dreading. As soon as it was done, but before the scaffolding crew took down the scaffolding, Kieron personally removed the netting from the scaffolding so we could have more light AND see more of the beautiful paint job. We are hoping to inspire the neighbors and have already given his name to one of them!

Description of work: I highly recommend Mccartney Painting. The firm just completed the exterior facade of our 1896 Queen-ann victorian, located at 64-66 Alpine Terrace, San Francisco, ca. They did a beautiful job. Drive by and look. Always organized, and feel we were very lucky to have hired such a highly qualified painting firm. Comments: I highly recommend Mccartney Painting. We are so pleased with all of their work. All the victorian detail is so beautifully done. They work fast and very organized.
