"We luckily found Priority Painting Services when we were looking to use mineral paint on our brick exterior. Not many local (Carmel/Indianapolis) painters use the line of paint we wanted (Romabio) but Manny assured me he was experienced with the application AND could source it for us. From the first conversation, Manny was an absolute pleasure to speak with and took time to explain things to us. His professionalism, honesty and expertise are unmatched!
Throughout our large project (all brick, trim, siding of tall 6000sq ft home) Manny and his wonderful crew were clean, on time and gave us regular updates to keep us informed. We really appreciated this and how incredibly hard working his crew is (especially Francisco!). The quality of their work is also terrific. I have tried to look for any flaws in the paint job and there just aren’t any! It looks even more stunning than I could have imagined and I’m so glad I trusted them with our project. They couldn’t be more responsive and wonderful to work with and I would recommend Priority Painting to anyone and everyone!!"
