Are The House Painters licensed and insured?

Yes, we are one of the few painting companies that actually are! We’re bonded, licensed and insured. This means that while you are out for a luncheon with friends or on vacation in Tibet, you can trust that your private property, losses and any damages are covered if – and only if – the business or contractor is bonded and/or insured.

What happens if the painters break something?

If something should get damaged while we are giving your home a facelift, the guys and gals at Westfield Insurance Group have you covered. We pride ourselves on our personal relationships with our clients. We give you the comfort and respect you desire when inviting us into your home.

We’ll even give your floors a final sweep to ensure your home has that fresh look you’ve dreaming of. But don’t our word for it, check out some reviews of our services from around the web.

Are you guys actually painters? I’ve bad experiences before…

Oh yes we are! We are professional full time painters with a combined experience of over 30 years! Painting is what we do, and ALL of our work comes with a 2-year guarantee!

Of course we were also named with The Best Painters in Nashville from The Scene’s 2012 Best of Nashville Readers Poll, so there’s that.

Is there anything you can’t paint?

Not really, if it can be painted or stained we’ll do it. The House Painters are a full service painting company which means we specialize in all of the following:

Residential; Commercial; Interior; Exterior; painting and staining of decks & fences, stucco, siding, fascias, soffits, doors & trim; reglazing and refinishing of bathtubs, tiles, counter tops and sinks; wallpaper removal; wall textures; paint stripping; wood repairs; drywall repairs; pressure and power washing; sealing of garage floors and driveways; removal of mold mildew and lead paint; so much more!

Brushing, rolling, airless spraying and HPLV is no problem for professionals like us. If it’s a faux finish or a beautiful glazing, lacquer, varnish or polyurethane finish that you want, no worries… there’s not a lot we DON’T do when it comes down to it!

Will you guys cut corners to save costs?

No. We only use the best in Porter Paints, products and materials, and with extensive experience and product knowledge you won’t go wrong. We’ll help you select the ideal colors and finishes for your next project.

Can I read real reviews from other people you’ve painted for?

You sure can! We have reviews all over our site from previous clients. You can also read reviews left on other painting review sites.

Who are the best painters in Nashville?

Well, according to the readers of The Scene we are!

Someone else quoted me a lower price, can you match it?

Perhaps. At the very least we will happily reevaluate our quote. If we feel that we can provide the level of quality at the lower price then we’ll match the quote. Otherwise we’ll have to pass. We will never sacrifice quality to get a job done cheaper. Read more about our price matching policy.

I want to hire you but my house is in Brentwood, will you still paint it?

No worries. We’re used to jobs outside of Nashville. Here’s a list of just some of the areas we regularly service:
Nashville, East Nashville, West Nashville, Brentwood, Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage, La Vergne, Donelson, Smyrna, Murfreesboro, Franklin, Bellevue, Belle Meade, Goodlettsville, Hendersonville, Madison, Antioch, and so many more!
