Testimonials

 

“Hamel Painters is superb. From my very first interaction with Nate, the owner, to the last they were extremely professional, reliable, and did fantastic work. I had Don on the job, and he was incredible. Not only was he very neat (there was literally not a drop of paint on any surface other than the walls), but he typically finished each room in one day and put all the furniture back in its place and vacuumed so that there was no trace of any paintwork in the room. They were also very sensitive to the fact that I am pregnant and made sure that the windows were open throughout the day in order to reduce the paint fumes. But most importantly, their work is flawless. My cousin, who is a decorator in LA and has done work for some celebrities, said that Hamel Painters did some of the best work she’s seen. I highly recommend Hamel and will absolutely be using them again.”

“The project went extremely well, and I’m very happy with the results. Nate provided a detailed quote, itemizing all the various elements of the job, and the final invoice was consistent with the quote – no surprises about pricing. He was also easy to reach during the planning phase and very flexible when it looked like some last minute changes in my schedule would affect what I’d asked him to do. The work was executed extremely well. I used very strong, vibrant colors on the walls and white on the trim and ceiling, so the edges around the ceiling and the trim really would show any imperfections, but everything looks very clean and sharp. The crew were considerate and careful about my house and possessions while working; I had just had my floors refinished when they began work and they covered them very carefully to be sure they weren’t damaged during the work. All in all, they were a pleasure to deal with. I went back and forth on my score for price; I think their pricing is a little higher than some other contractors, but they do very high-quality work, and I feel like I received value consistent with what I paid.”

“Again, an excellent experience with this company. Hamel Painters performed the work on about 2 weeks notice. I’ve used them on several projects and my experience with this one was no different than the rest. Because this was such a large project there were many different completion deadlines involved. The master suite was completed first and on schedule. This was followed by the remaining upstairs bedrooms, halls, foyar, downstairs and finally the basement. The crews showed up on time and worked long hours and holidays (they worked on labor day) to meet each completion deadline without missing one. Nate left the country for about a week to go on vacation during the project, but everything continued smoothly in his absence. There was a small punch list at the end of the project, but that is to be expected on any project of this size and detail.”

“Nate and his crew were fantastic. They kept to schedule even when the carpet installer could not. they came back an additional time to touch up after carpet installer and didn’t even charge extra. I would highly recommend them.”

“A truly excellent experience. The five star level of professionalism, expertise and courtesy positions Hamel Painters in a category unto itself. The cost estimate was right on, the value of the work compared to the price was exactly what I paid for, I scheduled the work one week in advance and the schedule was met without a hitch, I found Hamel Painters through Angie’s List website.”

“Nate from Hamel met me to pick up the keys and they did the job in two days. The work was done very professionally and completed before I expected. The quality of the finished product was exceptional and even though they used more paint than they originally expected there was no additional charge or fees. They stood by their quote and finished the job ahead of schedule. They made an effort to meet me based upon the time I had available in my schedule. They worked over the 4th of July weekend just to get the job done on time and there was no extra cost for the weekend/holiday work. I do not hesitate to recommend Hamel to anyone looking for home painting.”

“VERY GOOD Experience with this company. From the estimate appointment to the final completion Hamel Painters was on time and professional. All the work was explained in detail to me and when there were any problems or changes they were brought to my attention immediately. We got an excellent value!”

“It went very well. They did a good job and the surfaces look excellent. They also filled little discrepancies and gaps with filler. The ceilings and walls look very good. They used paint with very low VOCs, i.e. volatile hydrocarbons, so there was little smell from the paint. One of the primers did smell though. We also found that the bedroom paint was of a color slightly different from our original intention. There was a change of brand to achieve the low volatility and the color of the new brand, Sherwin Williams, was slightly different from our expectation based on the color of the Benjamin Moore. Nate offered to repaint the bedroom at no charge to us, but we felt the difference was so slight that we declined his generous offer.”

“I originally hired Hamel Painters to paint the kitchen in my apartment, but by the end of the project they nearly repainted every room. Nate was a very patient individual and addressed all my concerns as the project progressed. He was constantly checking in on the project and was easy to get a hold of even late at night when I expected to leave messages. His painters did a terrific job. They even rearranged the furniture for me in a couple of rooms when they were putting the room back together after painting. Overall my expectations were exceeded and the place looks better than I imagined.”

“This past year I hired Hamel Painters to paint my home. Having lived in it for the past 34 years, the house has been painted numerous times by a variety of companies. My experience with Hamel Painters was, by far, the best. The quality of their work, attention to detail, and integrity was second to none. I found Nate and Bryant a joy to work with and would highly recommend Hamel Painters.”

I have lived in Lexington since 1957 and over the years I have had my house painted several times. Your company was by far and away the best painting company that I have ever hired.  Your work ethic and attention to detail were beyond compare.  You showed up every day, and put in long hours and answered every question I had.  To top it all off, your price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend you to all my friends/neighbors.  Please feel free to use me as a reference.

I was extremely pleased with the quality and diligence of Hamel Painters.  From start to finish they were professional, courteous, tidy, diligent and a very good value for my money.  From the initial quotation to the final walk through Hamel Painters were true to their word and delivered on their promise of a quality paint job at a reasonable price.  In fact, one of my neighbors commented that watching Hamel Painters on the job was like watching a house owner paint his own house.  The painting crew took great care and pride in their job and came several times to re-touch areas of the house that were not up to their standard.  I would not hesitate to recommend Hamel Painters.
