To Potential Customers: Through the years I have had numerous contractors do many, many jobs on my houses. American Home Painting has painted the interior and exterior of my first house, and then been called upon to do exterior and interior painting on my second house. American Home Painting stands out as one of the most exceptional companies I have ever had the pleasure to work with. I am incredibly impressed with Damon and the people Damon hires. I have enjoyed being around each one of them, and am always a little sad when they leave. They are kind, friendly, personable, professional and have integrity. I completely trust them. They all treat each other and their clients with respect, and clearly both enjoy and take pride in the work they do. The house I am currently living in requires considerable expertise and knowledge. American Home Painting works hard at being informed and up-to-date in their field. I trust their knowledge and have been impressed with their willingness to find state of-the-art solutions to problems while still keeping their costs to a minimum.
Without any hesitation, I fully recommend American Home Painting.
Marlene K. Ballard
Prospective Customers of American Home Painting,
I am writing to give the highest recommendation of Damon Thompson and American Home Painting.Damon and his crew recently painted the entire outside of my home.He is without exception one of the most professional, knowledgeable and personable craftsmen I have ever worked with.We live in an old, 1920s fixer and have had many workers come through the house to do many different types of projects over the past five years of our ownership.Damon and his crew were by far the nicest, most courteous, most responsible and most respectful of our family and our property of anyone we have worked with.The final outcome is also the most satisfying, both in terms of the excellent job done and the entirely positive interactions we had with Damon and his team.We have even had neighbors (some of whom we had never met) stop by to comment on what a good job the painters did and how nice the house looks.
Damon is an excellent communicator, both in terms of job status and progress and in terms of “paint science.”One of the reasons we chose his over other bids was that he wrote up the most thorough, complete and clear explanation of the work proposed.He kept in contact to let us know the status of the project at all times and was always available to answer questions.He is knowledgeable and very good at explaining various aspects of paint, application and other procedures involved in the painting process.The project went exactly as he said it would, without delays (except for a little rain!) and with 100% follow-through on everything that was promised.He was also very helpful with decision-making, and made well-informed and helpful suggestions.
To a person, the American Home Painting crew was friendly, helpful, respectful and courteous.They were careful to clean up each day and at the end of the project and were very conscientious about paint chips and my three small children.I should also add that having Damon and his team around the house was a wonderful treat for the kids, who loved interacting with each of the painters and looked forward to seeing them each day.My daughter cried when the job was finished because it meant they would have to leave.Her only consolation was that their next job was just half a block up the street so we’d still be able to see them.My son wants to be a painter when he grows up.
We have already recommended Damon to a number of friends who have house painting jobs in their futures.It is with the greatest pleasure that I refer them to such a fine business person, who will provide them with not only the highest quality work but will enrich their lives with his presence and positive human interaction.
I would highly recommend Damon and American Home Painting if you are looking to paint your house.We have had a lot of work done on our house over the past three years and have dealt with a lot of contractors. Damon, by far, was the most professional we’ve dealt with yet.
He uses high quality materials, has a professional crew that are very tidy and leave the site as clean as possible during the work-in-progress stage, and gets the job done without continually adding to the bill for every minor detail.
He wasn’t the cheapest, but when you do a full side by side comparison, he was very comparable.We felt that he would be worth the few extra bucks and we found that to be the case.
In short, he’s a great guy, with a great company that does great work!
It is with great pleasure that we write a letter of reference for Damon Thompson, owner of American Home Painting.
Mr. Thompson and his crew did three jobs for us. He painted the interior of our home and we have yet to find a single paint splatter! Then he painted the exterior trim on our tall Tudor-type house, two coats, and again we were happy with the results. We were also happy to see the safety precautions he took. A third job was to paint inside and out a new window, installed by Cherry Creek Door and Window. Again, Damon's paint job was first class equal to the quality of the windows. A fourth job awaits....
I'm writing this letter to compliment Damon Thompson and the painting work he did for us this year. After the nice job Damon did painting our new garage (stained shingles with white painted trim), my wife and I asked Damon to repaint the interior of the lower floor of our house, including the living room, dining room and study. Our home was built in 1902 and has lots of wood trim, beamed ceilings, built in cabinets and plaster walls (making that straight cut line a little more challenging). We couldn't give Damon all the spaces at once since we didn't have space to remove all the furniture and wanted to keep some semblance of "living' in the house while he did his work. The painting involved changing the color scheme of all the trim, ceilings and walls.
Damon was more than accomodating of our requests. He worked on one-half the space at a time, helped with moving furniture and generally made the experience as pleasant as possible. Damon is quite meticulous in his work-both in the care taken with the actual prep work and painting, and the protection of surfaces and other areas in the home. His workers are equally conscientious. He tries to minimize the impact of a fairly intrusive process, and he always seems to keep in mind he is a guest in your home. Damon is quick to seek opinions on his work, and equally quick to touch up any areas pointed out by his client. There was never any request for increased costs no matter what sort of difficulties he ran into (like repairing some of our original windows).
I write this as someone who has dealt with a number of painters and other contractors over the past 25 years. I have managed both commercial and residential construction and have worked with a wide range of craftsmen. Damon ranks in my top 5%. He has certainly gained my recommendation to you for his professional skills and excellent customer service. I'm sure you'll be as pleased with the experience as we were.
Damon Thompson of American Home Painting did a complete paint restoration of my 1908 Ballard bungalow during the late summer and fall of 2000. As he had recommended and promised, he scraped the old paint from the entire house down to the original cedar siding; helped to project manage the replacement of rotten pieces of siding, drip shelves and window sills; secured all siding; installed wedge vents to encourage air ventilation; sanded everything thoroughly; helped to determine the use of accent colors; caulked generously; applied one coat of the best primer he could recommend, sanded again and added another coat of primer; and applied two coats of the best paint he could recommend. He also painted the shed, stained the new deck and old fence, and found an extraordinary imported paint for my new door, always making sure that the colors matched.
The job took a long time and required great attention to detail. Damon and/or his assistant were here every day from the start to the finish of the project. They were very pleasant to have around the house and kept the boom box volume low. When the neighbors, who have two young daughters, became concerned about some old lead paint chips floating into their yard, they took extra precautions by creating a tent of tarps. When they noticed the new roof was missing a couple of important flashing components, they let me know so I could call the roofer back to complete the job. They cleaned the work site thoroughly at the end. And, they did the entire job within the cost range originally estimated.
Damon is now painting my storm windows and basement, and next year I hope to have him paint the second floor interior of my home. I will have him come back every couple of years to repair any bubbles, cracks or dried caulking so that this paint restoration job lasts for many years to come.
In summary, I wouldn't consider using any other painter for exterior or interior work, and can recommend Damon's work quality and work ethics with no reservation.
My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to praise the work of Damon Thompson of American Home Painting. We have hired him three times, first in the spring of 2000 to paint most of the interior of our home, in the spring of 2001 to give our bathroom a face-lift, and again recently to paint our home's exterior.
Damon does outstanding work. The abundant attention and energy he gave to our exterior job was not at all surprising, he consistently places untmost importance on quality and customer satisfaction, year after year. He does not rest until the job is complete to perfection. Once again, we are extremely pleased with the results he left behind.
Not only does Damon deliver quality work, we have found him to be quite a pleasure to work with. He is cheerful and polite, respectful, communicates clearly, and has a fun sense of humor, to top it all off.
We regularly receive compliments on our home's new look, from both passers-by and neighbors. One of our neighbors liked the work so much that she hired Damon's company to take care of her house's exterior. I am confident that she will be as pleased with her end result as we are with ours.
We (Kevin or Amanda) would be glad to discuss this subject further, if there are any specific questions or concerns.
Thank you Damon for doing such a great job painting our house both inside and outside. You obviously care about your work very much. You and your crew were very courteous at all times, very easy to get along with. You made every effort to work with our schedule and get the projects done in a timely manner. Your attention to detail impressed me the most. I was concerned about paint being on the (wood) trim and in places it shouldn't be but it was an un-necessary worry. Clean is always a concern but was taken care of quickly and efficiently. Any problems we detected you took care of without question. It really looks great! I feel my money has been well spent and I am very glad we decided to have you do both the painting inside and the exterior of our home.
I would like to recommend to you Damon Thompson of American Home Painting. I have a 1926 house that looks fantastic, thanks to Damon and his painters. The exterior of my home was prepared, repaired and painted.
The paint jobs in the past had left many areas of bubbling paint, uneven layers of paint, touch-ups and rotted wood. Damon replaced rotted wood, after showing me the areas in question. He waterproofed, primed and painted the wood. The siding of my house was such a mess, Damon felt we needed to remove the paint to expose the wood. Damon and his workers sanded, added wedges to vent between the cedar siding for moisture reduction, caulked needed areas and primed twice. The corners of the house needed alot of attention. He nailed, filled, caulked and sanded them. Damon over-saw his workers and was present, working himself. He helped me with paint choices and added definition to the architecture.
Damon told me of the gutters leaking and rotting fascia boards in need of replacement. He purchased the wood and primed the boards for the gutter man to install. He contacted an installer and had an estimate made for me. I was able to choose the color orf gutters with Damon and the gutter man's help.
The house looked so nice, I decided to have the porch repainted, also. Damon knew of the correct type of paint to use on concrete and brick. There were cracks that he filled with the proper filler material and a nice job was done there, also.
Damon met all of my demands, working long hours to complete the job, done in a short time, due to my time constraints. He was tired and still did a great job! He and his crew were professional, friendly, and very conscientious. The plants, grounds and cars were covered. The yard, the restroom and the basement that was being used for storage of equipment were thoroughly cleanup up, without asking.
In all honesty, the job cost me more than I wanted to pay but is worth every penny I spent, because I know Damon and his crew did the best I could have ever hoped. They truly were angels to me because I never felt I was stressed with them handling the job. I have had so many contractors do poor work, be untimely, messy and deceive me. I know this job will last and if it doesn't for some unusual reason, that Damon would cheerfully make it right, if he were able.
Damon is very gifted and competent in his work. I will be happy to have him do more work for me. I gladly recommend him to you.
