House Painting Customer Reviews ~

What our Homeowners have to say...

"Legacy Painting was professional in all business dealings.  They were prompt and communicative.  I have a dog on premises and not once was I concerned for my pets safety or stress level.  I had my dog meet meet the crew so he knew they were supposed to be at the house.  I had the opportunity to review all of the work, before final approval.  I feel the price and quality were both excellent.  I would recommend Legacy Painting to those who are meticulous, critical and specific.  I also expect to use them again in the future."

"They prepared and painted the exterior of our home.  They did an amazing job.  So grateful for the absolute professionalism of the entire crew.  Thank you very, very much."

Mrs. Christine C., Exterior house painting, Walnut Creek, CA.  02/18/2016

"I was impressed with David from the very beginning.  He came prepared with prior jobs as references, reviewed options as well as what he felt would work best for my needs.  His bid was the lowest, but it was not why I selected him for the job.  I felt comfortable with his experience and knowledge.  I was not disappointed!  His crew showed up as stated to first clean the house.  When painting day came they were at the house on time.  They maintained a clean work area at all times.  When they finished the job there was no drips, spots, missed areas anywhere.  The house looked wonderful with sharp clean lines between house base and trim.  I was given a 5 year warranty on the paint job.  I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of service and professionalism of David and his crew."  (Comment posted on Home Advisor)

Mr. Liming H., Exterior house painting, San Ramon, CA.  11/18/2015

"Being a Female homeowner I have NEVER had a contractor leave after a remodel etc without feeling taken advantage of and stressed during every aspect of the job.  From the initial call till completion.  Judy (wife and office mgr), and David were honest, and instantly responsive.  It was obvious this is a family owned business and their reputation was important to them.  The quote was par with others but I chose them because of the outstanding reviews and David was a straight shooter and gave the best details during the quote."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

Ms. Sherry M., Fremont, CA.  09/29/2015

"They power-washed, primed and painted our one-story stucco and wood home.  It included a somewhat rusted, wrought-iron hand rail in the front.  Everything looked great when completed, with attention to small details for an overall clean look.  They were very professional, polite and easy to work with."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

Mr. John M., Exterior house painting, Martinez, CA.  07/11/2015

"David Baughman and his crew at Legacy Painting can be described in three words:  honest, efficient, and quality.  I met with 5 painters and received all their bids.  While Dave's was not the cheapest, he is clearly a man who is passionate about his work and knew what he was talking about.  I ended-up doing a much broader paint job with my home's exterior and am thrilled with the results.  Thanks Legacy Painting!  (Comment posted on Yelp)

Mr. Charles M., Exterior house painting, Livermore, CA.  03/05/2015

"Legacy Painting just completed painting the exterior of our home.  We had been referred from another contractor and were impressed with David's accurate and detailed estimate.  On the day they started, the 4-man team showed up and went to work quickly and efficiently.  It was obvious they knew what they were doing!  The job was completed on time and well done!  David even came back a few days later and trimmed out our new front door.  This is a great company with high values and quality to their work! 

Thank you, David and crew, for making this a great experience."  (Read posted comment on Yelp)

Mrs. Vickie W., Exterior house painting, San Ramon, CA.  02/26/2015

"It started with a referral from Red Beacon.  I chose 3 bidders.  David's bid was competitive and the write up estimate was the most detailed and professional looking.  He provided referrals, as well as I got referrals from Yelp.  David and his team painted the exterior of my home.  He communicated what to expect.  Any areas that needed some additional attention, he took care of.  In addition, I asked him if he could fix our sticking utility door and gate.  And he took care of it!  It's AMAZING what a fresh coat of paint can do for a home when done correctly!  I'd definitely recommend David and team."  (Read posted comment on Yelp)

Mr. Warren S., Exterior house painting, Fremont, CA. 02/16/2015

"They responded really fast to my request for service (some companies I sent messages to took over a week to reply).  I like the fact that the estimator who came out to see the job is the painter himself, so I could feel confident that he knew what he was talking about.  They painted the house, freestanding garage and separate shed and agreed to use 3 colors instead of 2.  They cleaned up every day.  In all, I was very happy with their work and would recommend them to anyone."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

"Word of mouth helped us select these painters and we weren't disappointed.   Very nice job (really clean lines where paint colors change-never noticed this with my old paint scheme).  Anyway, very reasonable priced and they get to it (very hard working group)."   (Read "hidden" posted comment on Yelp, tho hidden they still count to us!)

Mr. Dennis D., Exterior house painting, Pleasanton, CA.  10/07/2014

"I came to know about Legacy Painting Contractors through the job they completed on my neighbor's house.  After making initial contact with David, he personally visited our house to provide the initial estimate.  David was on-time (within 2-3 minutes) of his scheduled appointment time.  David is extremely polite and considerate.  He answered all of my questions thoroughly.  Quotation was sent to me via email within 2 days of his initial visit.  Legacy painting's quotation was very price competitive to other quality painters in the market.  Lead time for starting the job was around 6 week, however this is mainly because of the fact that these guys are very popular and they are booked way in advance...

Mr. Navid L., Exterior house painting, Pleasanton, CA.  10/04/2014

"I watched Legacy Painting paint the house next to me.  I went over during the job and asked for a quote.  After the job was complete I went and "inspected" that house next door.  I was very impressed at the attention to detail and let me tell you I am a VERY picky person.  After checking that house, didn't even get another estimate.  I simply called and asked when I could get on the schedule.  Dave and Judy were very easy to work with.  Judy even helped me with some "design" as the wife was out of town and I needed some help deciding on accent colors.  I can't say enough about how happy I am with the exterior house painting job.  Mine also had that same level of detail.  The crew were very courteous and efficient.  The job was completed in 2.5 days.  Dave came back and did a walk around and honestly, as much as I looked, I couldn't find one spot that needed attention.  You won't be disappointed if you choose these folks to paint your house."  (read posted comment on Yelp)

Mr. Curt D., Exterior house painting, Livermore, CA.  09/19/2014

"Legacy finished painting the exterior of our house in Pleasanton in early August.  They were fast, very good, and wonderful at the details that were critical to the great job they did.  Dave and his wife were very responsive to our questions and requests, and found a way to do our job quickly despite their very busy schedule.  We recommend them unconditionally to anyone who would like a truly professional paint job for their home."  (see posted comments on Yelp)

Mr. Jon T., Exterior house painting, Pleasanton, CA.  09/04/2014

We even post the negative ones! 

Homeowner:  "Legacy came to our home and spent time making notes to put together a bid.  We were impressed with their knowledge and suggestions.  Unfortunately we never received a bid or call back.  If they did not want to do the job just say so!  If you would prefer to do only homes in San Ramon or Livermore then don't come out to Castro Valley.  Very unprofessional." 

Our reply:  "I apologize that you did not receive our estimate via email.  If we had known you had not received it, we would have resent it in a timely manner.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  There are many good painting companies in this area so we assume your house painting has been completed by now and that you are happy with the results.  It was a pleasure meeting with you and we wish you the very best on your future house projects."  (We also place a phone call) *Lesson learned:  we now ask each homeowner to please call us if they have not received our estimate within 3-4 days.  (see posted comments on Yelp)

Mrs. Charlene G., Painting Estimate, Castro Valley, CA.  08/23/2014

"Went very well.  Legacy painters were communicating and were in constant touch from the time of the estimate to the time they showed up at my door for work.  They clearly explained the nuances with various options.  And all three days during the painting, they were very professional.  Took time to review the work with us multiple times during the day.  Did multiple coats on the trims and walls.  Owner, David, is very meticulous and was always there during the work performed.  He pays special attention and is very detail oriented.  David was gracious to fix pigeon net for us without additional cost."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

"Legacy just completed painting our home in Livermore.  From start to finish everything was perfect.  Professional, fast, neat, reasonable, great workers.  No paint anywhere but on the house.  I don't know how you can paint a foundation without getting paint on the dirt but they did it.  I can't say enough about how happy we are with the job they did.  Thanks Dave and crew."  (read posted comment on Yelp)

Mr. Jim P., Exterior house painting, Livermore, CA.  07/02/2014

"I received several bids for an exterior paint job on my two story hillside residence.  I selected Legacy Painting because they provided the most comprehensive preparation treatment for the T1-11 siding.  They did an excellent job at a very reasonable price.  They started and completed the job on time and it looks great.  I would use them again without question."

Mr. Patrick P., Exterior house painting, Martinez, CA.  06/28/2014

"Legacy painted the exterior of a home I have in Pleasanton.  I however live in Los Angeles.  It's hard to have anything done like this long distance.  Legacy did a fantastic job painting the house.  They surpassed my expectations with the quality of their work.  they were less expensive than the other quotes I had gotten.  They communicated with me during the entire process via emails and phone calls.  they took pictures before and after and sent them.  They set me color selections and actually ended up having to match a color for me.  It's rare to find a company like this these days who will actually go the extra mile to make sure their customer is happy and Legacy did that and more.  I would highly recommend their service to anyone."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

Mrs. Zaido O., Exterior house painting, San Ramon, CA. 05/16/2014

"Dave provided a very competitive bid that I felt delivered the best value versus the other painting contractors.  I contacted Dave/Legacy Painting after seeing the results on a neighboring home on my street. Got my bid in a day or so and then Dave was able to squeeze in my job within the same week.  Dave did not disappoint.  They did a great job prepping the house which consisted of power washing, sealing the cracks in the stucco, replacing some fascia that was rotted and digging out about 2-3 inches around the base of the home.  The following day Dave arrived promptly at about 7:30-8:00 am and completed most of the painting in one day.  He came back again at 8 am on a second day and completed the second coat on some trim.

The whole process was stress free, he clearly knows his craft and everything was done very much to my satisfaction.  He was very responsive by both phone and text.  He cleaned up everything, there were no paint drips or splatter on my pavers (driveway, walkway and patio) to be found.  To top it all off, Dave was a super nice guy to chat with.  Before leaving he said "just because I am paid doesn't mean that I am finished.  Let me know if you find anything that needs to be touched up".

I was so happy with Dave/Legacy that I told him to leave his sign up for an extra week in my yard.  Great Job, Great Value, Great Person!  What more can you ask for?  I highly recommend Dave/Legacy Painting."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

Mr. Scott L., Pleasanton, CA.  04/24/2014

"Mr. Baughman (David) and an associate power washed our two story home and deck.  He painted the trim on our home and applied two coats of stain on the deck.  David did everything we discussed and went beyond our expectations.  He provided us with a clear and detailed estimate.  There were no surprises.  He was fast and efficient.  It was a joy working with David and we will use him for all our painting needs."  (Subscribed members can view comment on Angie's List)

Mr. Salvatore L., Exterior house painting, Fremont, CA. 03/24/14

 "David and his partner were great! The rooms look the best they ever have and I have been in this house for over 30 years. The rooms were painted very quickly, but thoroughly. We had accent walls in each room, with the ceilings also being painted a lighter shade. So three colors in every room, but it was no problem with them. Very good lines and the rooms are looking so good. It was a great experience, really enjoyed having these guys in our home." (read comment on Thumbtack)

 "I hired Legacy Painting to paint the exterior of my home and repair some of the wood trim. I received bids from about 5 companies, and theirs was the most competitive, but that wasn't the only reason I hired them. David and Judy were very professional and easy to work with. The quality of the work is excellent, the work site was clean, they were considerate to my neighbors, responsive to my questions and just awesome to work with. I can't say enough good things about them? I would recommend them to anyone."   (Read posted comment on Home Advisor)

Mrs. Tina H., Exterior house painting, Pleasanton, CA.  02/21/2014

"The reason I hired Legacy Painting was two fold, they had very competitive prices (actually the lowest of 3 bids), and David the owner just seemed like a good, down-to-earth guy. The quality of the work was excellent. David was very fair when it turned out I didn't like the paint color I selected. He repainted the main body of the house for me with no hassle and reasonable expense. They were fast and clean, and left no signs that they were even there, besides the awesome paint job. Great quality work by very good people! I would recommend them to anyone!"   (Read posted comment on Home Advisor)

Mr. Tom V., Exterior house painting, Livermore, CA.  01/29/2014

"I hired Legacy Painting because they quoted me the best price and David was very professional.  He answered all my questions during the estimate.  I wanted my stucco primed before painting and everyone else wanted to charge even more than their original quote for it.  They replaced some wood on my chimney, matched my paint perfectly, and everything came out incredible.  I would recommend Legacy Painting to anyone for their communication and quality service.

Mrs. Suzanne Garrett, Exterior house painting, Walnut Creek, CA.  9/3/2013

 "Dave was fantastic.  He painted the exterior of our house.  Showed up when he said he would (am I the only one who is amazed when contractors don't show up when they promise to).  Courteous, conscientious and worked hard.  He was competitively priced too.

The work he did was great.

Two things absolutely above and beyond 1:  He was working across the street and from their roof noticed he missed a spot on our home.  We would never have known, nor would anyone else, and yet David came over, climbed up a ladder, and fixed the small spot.  2:  The siding on our house contracted a small bit, and left streaks of the old color wherever there were joints between two pieces of siding.  Dave came over and climbed his ladder and fixed the joints.  The issue was absolutely no fault of his, and yet he fixed it on his own dime.I highly recommend Legacy Painting.  (Read posted comment here on Yelp)

Mr. Doug Brobst, Exterior house painting, Livermore, CA.  8/29/2013

"Dave and Bob did an outstanding job painting my house.  Dave, the owner of the company, told me he works the jobs to ensure the work is done professionally.  I couldn't believe the cost of the job was so reasonable.

They were on time, worked so efficiently, the work was amazing, and they cleaned up the job site perfectly.  Dave did everything he said he would do that was on the contract.  I am so happy with their work that I am telling all my friends about the wonderful company.

Dave did not hesitate to supply me three documents, his estimate, his painter's by laws, and his bonded insured liability license.

If you want a great paint job, easy on the budget, fast and professional, then Legacy Painting Contractors is the company for you.  I almost forgot to say how pleasant the two were, always listening to me and thanking me for my questions and my business."  (Read posted comment here on Yelp)

Mr. John Prior, Exterior house painting, Fremont, CA.  8/23/2013

"Dave was professional from the moment that I first contacted him, to the end. Dave's work was professional grade at 50% of what the others wanted to charge me. I was skeptical it could be that good, but to be honest, sometimes I find myself still trying to inspect his work even though it's been a few months since he finished, and I still can't find a flaw. It's like the paint was laser etched onto my interior walls lol. Honestly, great work and I couldn't have been more pleased."  (Read posted comment here at Google+)

Mr. Dylan Dunnan, Interior house painting, Fremont, CA.  7/7/2013

"Painting the exterior of my home was an extremely easy and stress-free experience, thanks to Legacy Painting. Dave provided a very reasonable bid in estimating the job. He arrived on time when promised and completed the job in a timely and very neat manner. Dave has a pleasant personality which made him a very easy person with whom to work. During the course of the project Dave made some helpful suggestions and went beyond the contract to make sure that we were completely satisfied with the job. I couldn't be happier with the finished product and would definitely recommend Legacy Painting to others without reservation."  (Read posted comment here at Google+)

"David gave a competitive estimate and he and his employees showed up on time and completed the painting of my exterior when he promised. David pointed out some issues with my dried out exterior trim and he took care of it beforehand. No other painter saw that! They picked up after themselves and were extra kind to my animals when they got in the way of their work sometimes. I love the color of my house now! They did a great job and I highly recommend them."   (Read posted comment at Thumbtack)
