"Dan did an excellent job on the interior paint job for our home. He was able to quickly get us a very reasonable estimate, and arrived on time to start the job. He spent a significant amount of time preparing for the paint job (covering floors and furniture, repairing and sanding walls, etc) instead of rushing through things. Dan and his team were very professional and friendly throughout the job. They finished the paint job on time, and even came in under budget! I would not hesitate to recommend Dan and Expertise Painting to all of my neighbors, and will be using them again for future painting needs. " - Michael & Allison - Redfields
" This is our 2nd round with Dan and his team. He painted the outside of our house last fall and the inside of a rental home just last week. We had begun the painting, but health and time issues prevented our finishing the job. Dan and team came in and smoothly picked up where we left off touching up as needed. Their work gave the home a crisp and clean new look, and they paid attention to every detail. Honest, friendly, professional, high quality, excellent work ethic, punctual, efficient, neat, careful, reasonable pricing . . . these are just some of the terms we would apply to their work here. We definitely recommend them to any and all! Thank you, Dan and Kimberly, for a job well done! " - Bill & Harriet
" What a pleasure it was to work with Dan, Jay, and Buckley! You could not find a more genuine and honest group of men to work with! The following is a list of words and phrases that describe the experience we had with Expertise Painting as they painted the outside of our house and an outbuilding: punctual- arrived by 8AM each morning to get started; excellent communicator; quality work; professional; courteous; friendly - even the neighbor's dogs came over to greet them each day; meticulous - caulked every crack, nail head, carpenter bee and woodpecker hole on the whole house before painting; above-and-beyond; greatly desirous of our feedback throughout the job; cleaned up after each day . . . We're sure we've left things out, but you get the picture! We will use their services again and will certainly recommend them to others. Thanks again, Dan and crew! " - Bill and Harriet
" EXCELLENT JOB! We just bought a house and wanted it painted before we had the furniture delivered. On the recommendation of a coworker, I contacted Dan for an estimate. He came and did a thorough walk-through of the house and gave me a fair estimate for the amount of work that was required. The results were nothing less than FANTASTIC!! Dan worked with us to ensure the colors were exactly what we wanted, and the attention to detail was absolutely first rate. The entire crew was extremely courteous, and treated my home as if it were their own. I will recommend Expertise Painting to everybody I know, plus when I have my deck painted next year, Dan and the Expertise Painting Crew will be the only number I dial!" - JD & Linda
" I could not have ever imagined a better job! Dan and Jay of Expertise Painting showed up, on time everyday, with a smile. They did everything I asked of them and more. Their work ethic, integrity, and workmanship is impeccable and they are very, very pleasant to be around!! They painted the interior of my 17 year old home and it looks new again. Included in the interior painting was the repair of several holes, cracks, and water stains in the walls. They also power washed many outside areas and cleaned the mildew off of my white gutters. Dan's price for the job was MORE THAN fair and I will use them again and again!! I HIGHLY recommend Expertise Painting!!! " -Ingelcress
" Dan, Jay and James did above quality work in My new nest at Branchlands! Made my place Feel like home with excellent job painting kitchen Cabinets, entire home, and many extras as a Handyman!! Thanks guys - Blessings " - Julie D Murphy
" Dan and his crew of professional painters did an outstanding job for us, quality workmanship from the beginning. Dan assisted in the paint selection and provided suggestions regarding the scope of work that was to be done. Their attention to detail started with their prep work and was carried thru the entire job. They paid particular attention to protecting our rugs, floors, and furniture. Clean drop clothes and plastic were generously placed for protection. Several rooms were part of our job; Dan worked with us to schedule the job to limit the disruption. Only one area of our house was worked on at a time. Dan and his painters are very professional and provided a quality paint job. The job went very smoothly, quickly, on schedule, and on budget. They are scheduled to do additional work for us. We highly recommend Dan and Expertise Painting.... " - The Owens
" I'm going to add to a long list of people who will highly recommend Dan and his team of polite, caring and skilled workers. If you're a senior, this is the company you want doing your job. They go the extra mile. They show up on time and the finished product makes you smile! Dan has that good old fashion work ethic. His company stands behind their work. I have enthusiastically recommended Expertise Painting, Inc. to all my friends. " - Jean Whitaker - Forest Lakes
" Dan and his crew exceeded our expectations. Not only were they polite and punctual, they were very careful with our landscaping and particularly neat with their work and equipment. We bought our house new, but Dan made it look better than when we bought it. We recommend him and his crew without reservation, and are relieved to have found such a great resource for our new home's future needs. " - Vance and Julie - Spring Creek
" We lucked into Expertise Painting when a family at the Blue Ridge School recommended them. And we really did luck out. Dan and his team did a fabulous job. (Dan used a level to make certain the line where the wall met the ceiling was straight enough for his taste.When the paint color was in an incorrectly labeled mystery can he spent three hours getting the correct color.) Not only did they do a bang up job, but they were pleasant to have around the house for a few days. Even my dog will miss them. Hire them. Seriously. " - Adrienne Fowler
" We had interior painting done by Dan and company. We were very pleased with the work that was done. They exceeded our expectations! We would recommend Expertise Painting. " - Beasley
" Just had the best of experiences of having a good amount of painting done at my home. The quality of the work by Dan Kirby and his crew was top-notch, definitely and A+! Dan did both interior and exterior painting for me including staining a large porch/deck and lattice, painting of the home's foundation, and all exterior door jambs including the two garage doors. On the interior, Dan painted two bedrooms and the staircase and hall way leading upstairs to the bedrooms, including all door jambs and wood work trim. If you want painting done without worrying about how things will go, then I definitely recommend Expertise Painting. You get the very best of quality work for a very fair price in my opinion. Will definitely use them again for my painting needs. " - Gordonsville, VA
" We have known Dan and appreciated his work for over six years. He is a skilled painter and has a great attitude - always willing to go the extra mile to make sure his customers are satisfied. Dan and his crew are friendly, dependable and trustworthy. Whenever we have a painting or repair need in our home we call Expertise. " - Blair and Katie - Redfields
" Expertise Painting just finished a paint job in our great room and we couldn't be more pleased. Dan & crew showed up on time and even finished ahead of schedule. They treated the interior of our house with care, cleaned up at the end of each day and were fun to work with. We highly recommend Dan and his painting crew and will definitely use their services again. " - Bill & Julie F
" Being new to the area we had no idea of the reputation of painters in Charlottesville. After looking around, we contacted Expertise via a favorable recommendation of our landlord. Dan's quoted price was extremely competitive in comparison to other quotes we received. His persona during the estimate meeting was extremely professional, but warm and friendly (I didn't get the feeling that I was being hood-winked). He had very prompt and courteous communication via email and telephone during the time between the estimate and the actual start time of the job. (elapsed time approx. 2 weeks) In today's fast-paced world, that type of customer service was a STAND OUT PLUS for us!!! The morning Dan, Jay, and James arrived they immediately went to work. They worked quickly while paying attention to detail. The three men were light-hearted, friendly and displayed a great sense of family/teamwork amongst each other. I cannot recommend Expertise Painting enough! Dan and co. have definitely earned their spot as "our painters" (and new friends) for the duration of our stay here in Charlottesville. " - Rob and Tania E.
" Dan and his professional crew have recently completed a redo of our office. What a great group to work with. " - Bob Short
" We have used Dan Kirby (Expertise Painting Inc.) for several years for various projects around our home. His work is always excellent and when he is called to do more work as happened recently, he took time to touch up our damage to work done as long as three years previously. He has painted inside as well as outside of our home. He has been hired by our community to change mail boxes, paint supporting posts and lamp posts. All have been pleased with his work. We have recommended him to many of our neighbors with confidence that they would be pleased with his work. " - Richard H. Herrmann, Redfields.
" We recently hired Expertise Painting to do some interior painting and strip wall paper. We couldn't have been more pleased with their professionalism and attention to detail. They arrived on time, finished earlier than expected and did excellent work. We highly recommend them! " - M. Rigg - Forest Lakes
" We are so pleased with the work Expertise Painting did in our house. We hired them to paint a portion of the interior as well as strip wallpaper in two bathrooms. The work was done carefully and quickly, finishing in far less time than we expected. Every member of Dan's crew was professional and considerate. We highly recommend Expertise Painting, Inc! " - Forest Lakes
" Dan Kirby and his crew have painted the interior and exterior of my home as well as the porch and decking and have done a fabulous job on every project.

" Nothing but good things to say about working with Dan & his crew. The great quality of the work, the knowledge about their trade and strong work ethic proved out. They take pride in doing a job well and doing it right. They were polite, professional and conscientious. Any questions about the job were checked with us and we liked working with them. We liked the first job enough to already have them back and do another job for us. It was as well done as the first one. We've been recommending them and the local paint store we dealt with, Sherwin Williams, to everyone. " - Gary Liles & Judy Levine
" We cannot recommend Dan and his crew enough! Over the past 5 years Dan, Jay, and Pedro have painted pretty much our entire house, inside and out. They did everything for us, including painting custom colors, trim, fixing drywall, weather stripping, patching, installing a chair rail, hanging tapestry, power-washing, and staining our deck. They are always prompt, curteous,neat,friendly and respectful, and just fun guys to work with. Knowing his long experience as a painter we asked Dan for advice on colors, and we are very happy we took it! We very highly recommend Expertise Painting! " - Laura and Kathie - Dunlora
" Expertise painting did a great job on our house! They came in and painted while we were on vacation and everything went perfectly- they moved the furniture, painted, moved it back. It was like comnig home to a brand new house! Thanks so much for being so professional and trustworthy!- " - Redfields
" Dan and his team painted our interior. It was approximately 1900 square feet. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms; included two coats, ceilings and kitchen cabinets. Also, bead board and crown molding were install in in our living room and kitchen. They installed new faucets in our bathrooms and light fixtures. They had excellent experience, were prompt, polite and professional. He responded quickly with the initial estimate. Dan met at Lowes to help me select the right paint and bead board. They did an outstanding paint job with very clean lines. They finished the job in record time by working very long hours. They were always concerned. with my satisfaction of the job. Any little extra jobs I asked them to do (change light/faucets/hinges/etc.) they were more than wiling to accommodate. I plan to hire them to paint the exterior of my house in the spring. " - Western Ridge

" Dan Kirby was recommended to us by the outgoing president of the HOA as someone who did great work at a fair price. Expertise Painting also was the company who kept the maintenance free homes in our neighborhood looking polished. We are very pleased with the exterior painting of our house, everything was completed on time, with attention to detail and Mr. Kirby made sure that we were satisfied with the workmanship. We highly recommend Mr. Kirby and Expertise Painting and will be using him again. " - Redfields

I highly recommend Dan and his team if you are in need of painting services. " - Business Officer, private high school
" My husband and I hired Dan to paint several rooms prior to moving into our new home. We had a quick deadline, and he met it with no problem. He did some extensive sanding to remove old paint finishes that looked terrible, but upon seeing his results you would never know what was there before. Not only that, he left the house clean as a whistle. We have received many compliments on the quality of his work. I appreciated that he was willing to work within my budget, and his pricing is very reasonable. All in all, Dan is a pleasure to deal with in all respects and the only painter I will ever hire. " - Jessica Phillips
" Dan and his crew painted the exterior and interior of our home. Dan is professional, courteous, and easy to work with. He took the time to consider our tastes, make recommendations, and provide samples until we were pleased with our color selections. He has totally revived our 1920's home and we love it! We have had many compliments on our house and we highly recommend Expertise Painting. We will definitely hire hin for our future projects. " - Belmont

" Dan and his crew painted the interior of my home about year ago. Recently I hired them again to paint the exterior of the house. Once again, they did a fantastic job. Professional, prompt, courteous and fairly priced. They are trustworthy and always return phone calls. My house looks great inside and out. They go above and beyond what most contractors will do achieve customer satisfaction. Highly recommend*****. " - Mary Craig
" Dan, Jay and the rest of the team have completed many projects for me both personally (home - exterior and interior) and professionally (office interior), always on time and on budget, and always meeting the highest standards. They listen, they work around schedules, and they do a thorough, professional job. As an example, at my office Dan took 4 different visits to put paint swatches on the walls of each employee until every person in the office was satisfied with his or her selection, and then he and his crew worked nights and weekends, moving all the furniture themselves, to paint our office with absolutely no disruptions to our work flow. " - Ron Goldberg
" Dan and Pedro painted the exterior of our home and the work exceeded our expectations. Not only did Dan respond to our initial request immediately, but he was here painting on the days arranged and did not stop until every last detail was completed. By detail I mean caulking where he felt necessary, painting the chimney flashing, prying off an old rusted basement window that had never before been opened, thus allowing him to paint the window, to touching up a spot on a gutter from a prior workerman's ladder. I even heard a couple stop out in front of our home to speak with Dan one day while he was painting. They turned out to be former customers, who Dan now referred to as friends. They indicated we had chosen the best painter we could have found. We are so pleased with Dan's work, that next we will have him move to the interior (winter rate). He befriended our dogs and spoke to them as if they were his. Our two Goldens wholeheartedly approved of our choice in painters. We need Dan's knees to hold up for another 20 or so years of painting ahead of him. On a 1-10 scale, Expertise Painting, Inc. is a 15. " - Constance Mathison
" I was considering replacing my front door and side lights. I had neglected it with no maintenance for a decade and it really looked bad. Someone suggested that I let Expertise Painting refinish the existing door and side panels instead of replacing it. I thought there was no hope, but gave it a chance. For about one-tenth the price of replacing the door and side panels, Expertise made my front door look brand new. Several neighbors have complimented me on my "new" front door. I highly recommend them! " - Field Stone
" Expertise Painting is a premiere contractor and removed all the worries that comes with having to hire a company to do work in my home. I totally agree with the reviews that mention the comfort level when working with Dan and his crew, they were great. The price was competitive and the results were first-class. I completely recommend Expertise Painting for all your painting needs....and light carpentry work too. You are probably reading this review because you are looking for a painting contractor....you don't have to look any further. " - Western Ridge
" Dan Kirby and his employees at Expertise Painting, Inc, are awesome! They painted the interior of our home and did a great job. They also did several other improvement jobs,-added bead board, lighting and some faucet changes. They go beyond what most hired home improvement companies are willing to do. They are professional, courteous and gave us some great suggestions. They made sure that we were satisfied with the work. Dan was always prompt in responding and returning calls. The prices were competitive and fair. i would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to friends and neighbors. In fact I intend to have them paint the exterior of my house soon. " - Dunlora
" Dan has done all our interior spaces and we are very pleased. His suggestions were welcome and useful. He has worked for several of our neighbors, doing interiors as well as exterior work. We have heard good reports regarding his work. In one case we know he took over a job where he had been underbid and the owner fired the other painter in the middle of the job. He has done a great amount of work in our area. We feel confident in leaving him in our home in our absence. " - Dunlora
" Dan and his team painted our home last year and did a wonderful job. He took care to understand exactly what we wanted to do, made good suggestions, and gave us a fair price. In all respects he dealt with us in a straightforward manner. His team was here on time, cleaned up after themselves, and were friendly and respectful in our home. We have had nothing but compliments about the quality of their work and the nice impact it had on our home. We would certainly hire him again. " - Walnut Hills
" Wow, I'm so happy with their results. Dan and his team were fantastic and a pleasure to work with. They really spent the time to do things right instead of rushing through the job like some contractor horror stories I've heard about others. And they explained what they were doing, gave me different options, kept me informed. And I've had no problems since they did the work last month. I've recommended Expertise Painting to all my neighbors and friends because they did such great, professional, thorough work for me. As a single female new homeowner, I was so comfortable having his team in my place, they were all very polite, and I know they are the only contractors I will work with in the future.
