Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it. Let our customers speak for themselves:

Michael Ermer

I highly recommend Mr. Paint for any paint job. I have used the company several times over the years, both on my house and my mother’s. Just recently the company pointed the inside of my house. It was a very substantial job. As always, I was extremely impressed. They showed up on time and got the job done when they promised. They carefully covered and taped everything to make sure that there was no damage to my furniture or other possessions. These guys are real professionals, in every sense of the word. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for quality painting work.

Angie Reyes

We were very pleased with Mr. Paint. The crew was professional, on time and thorough. They did a great job! We will definitely use them again!

James Muir

Mark – Excellent job. Third time Josue has done work here and he always does a superb job. Jany is the best partner out of the three times. The other two were very good, Jany is just better. It has always been a comfort knowing what results I get from you before the job has even been done.
James Muir

Mr. & Mrs. Ruben

Mark Whaley and the employees of Mr. Paint are the best of the best. We’ve used them for our painting needs for over 20 years and have been more than satisfied with their work each and every time.

Lauren

Mark (“Mr. Paint”) did a fantastic job on our kitchen cabinets! Aside from the quality of the work, Mr. Paint and his team are trustworthy, punctual, friendly and hardworking. When Mr. Paint sent us our final invoice, the amount was less than his original bid because the job did not take as long as anticipated. We were so impressed with his honesty.

We will absolutely hire Mr. Paint for any of our future painting needs. He is the best around!

Rob and Carrie Binder

Thanks Mark. Rob and I really appreciate the job you and your guys did. Ruben and crew did a fantastic job. In addition to their skill level, they were prompt, thorough, hard-working, flexible and very pleasant to be around. It’s rare to find a company and crew that does what it says it’s going to do, in the time allotted and for the price agreed upon. Don’t think it goes unnoticed. We’ll be sure to refer you whenever someone mentions “paint”. There is also a chance we may be picking up some investment properties to fix and sell, which would require painting. I’ll be sure to let you know!

Sincerely,
Carrie Binder

To Whom It May Concern:

Mr. Paint has currently been attending to our clients needs for over 10 years, and overall we have been very happy with the level of service we have received. We have been particularly impressed in a number of areas. First, Mr. Paint’s staff is professional and courteous in their demeanor and able to tackle all of our painting needs. It’s nice to be able to have a staff to rely on that can fix any issue all in an efficient and timely manner. Second on the larger projects Mr. Paint is particularly valuable. It is often difficult and time consuming to find a good trust worthy painter for bigger homes. Mr. Paint has been able to handle all of our bigger jobs, and most importantly been able to get them completed in days, rather then weeks. Considering everything they provide and the manner in which they do so we would recommend Mr. Paint as a great company for your home, we appreciate the peace of mind that they consistently provide to us.

Thank you

Ellen and Dale Liefer

Dear Mark, we want to tell you how much we have appreciated the quality of workmanship your company has provided to us over the years. We have lived in three different homes in the past eleven years and have not once been disappointed in the quality of workmanship, timeliness and professionalism that has been demonstrated in all aspects of your company. We have learned that your prices are always within reason and you deliver what you promise. I have referred your company to many friends over the years and will continue to do so.

Sincerely,
Ellen and Dale Liefer

Glen Boyd

Mr. Paint has been painting my properties for over 20 years. The quality of the work has always been excellent. Lots of attention is given to proper preparation and the painting is done with great care. Mark Whaley is a person of utmost integrity. It has truly been a pleasure doing business with him all these years.

Glen Boyd

Wayne & Shannon Inouye

We highly recommend the services of Mr. Paint for regular and specialty painting. Mark Whaley gives accurate quotes, his employees are reliable, trained, polite, on time, use the correct materials for the job, do excellent work, and clean up when they’re finished. In particular, we truly respect the talents of Sosomo and Baldamar, who are true artists, take pride in their work, and are always a pleasure to work with. In addition to Mr. Paint having done all the painting for our new home in 2004, we have re-hired them several times since then to help us with out-of-the ordinary jobs, such as:

  • To patch & blend the “divot” my husband made in a wall while practicing his golf swing indoors;
  • To create a “trompe-l’oeil” on the interior of a fountain so the waterproofing-materials look like stone;
  • To restore, stain and seal two sets of exterior closet doors to protect them from the sprinkler’s water and hot afternoon sun.

Jim and Ann McIlwain

We wish to thank you for the painting you did on the exterior and interior of our home. Your expertise and color consultation were very helpful to us. Careful attention was given to preparation and protection of the areas to be painted. Also, quality materials were used and were professionally applied. The project was completed on schedule and we appreciated how courteous and accommodating the painters were. Mr. Paint is all you could ask for in a painting contractor, and we can recommend you without reservations.

Gary and Judi Smolin

We have truly enjoyed our relationship with “Mr. Paint” for many years now. They have been the ultimate professional every time they’ve worked with us. We have looked forward to seeing, many times now, the same wonderful guys when they come out. The crews do exquisite work every time, leaving a newer and improved version of our home with each visit. We would like to thank you, Mark, and your employees, for an on-going and rewarding connection with your company, and for the friendship that has been its result.

Sincerely,

Gary and Judi Smolin

Victor and Sandy Norton

I was referred to Mark, owner of Mr. Paint, by one of Orange County’s premier custom home builders. Mark punctually responded to my request for an evaluation and estimate of a badly needed painting job of our recently acquired Three Arch Bay house. We are delighted with the results, timeliness and professionalism of Mark and his team, and quite frankly, we are really picky. I have owned a dozen homes over the last 40 years, some for personal use, some for investment, several major remodels, one built from scratch in Monarch Bay, all requiring paint; Mark is simply the best.

Hi Mark,

Your service level to customers is 2nd to none… it’s absolutely the best!

Thank you so much for addressing the couple of paint issues that I had experienced since you completed painting my house last year. I greatly appreciated it.

Angie Stoecker

Your guys did a fantastic job on our doors and gate, we’re really pleased with the final result!! I really enjoyed Enrique and Jose and their hard work and attention to detail, and told them so. But as their boss, I wanted to let you know.

John Crouse

Mark –
It’s not often that we get what we pay for, much less more than we pay for! Robin and I are so pleased with the job. All your guys were so hardworking and courteous. It is exactly the principles that we espouse and have been the key to our success.

John Phelan

Thanks to you and your crew for a great job.

Steve Lewis

Mark:
It is always such a pleasure to have your talented and hardworking crew tend to my interior and exterior painting needs at my Laguna Beach home. We have had an amazing 25 year plus run where you have taken care of all my painting needs both for my commercial building and residence. Your guidance as to the best approach for the painting projects is always right on target and then the execution by your Mr. Paint colleagues is second to none. Whether the job is exterior or interior your paint crew always keeps the work area net and clean and the quality of their work is always at the highest level. I have some additional painting needs and will be calling you soon to schedule when you can begin the job.
Thank you for all your great work for all these years. You and your crew are “true professionals.”

Susan Nelson

Mark Whaley (AKA Mr. Paint), has been managing our interior and exterior painting needs at two Newport Beach residences for 25 years. I would never consider using anyone else. Mark manages every detail, resolving and repairing problems, always considerate of property and personal schedules. His team is never intrusive, always polite and professional.

Mr. Paint is the best painting company in Orange County.

Braddie Dooley

Mark Whaley (Mr. Paint) has been our painting contractor since 1986, painting the interior and exterior of our home multiple times. In addition to being very personable, Mark has been the consummate professional throughout every phase of each project. His attention to detail and his commitment to excellence consistently shine through all aspects of the work. We have been impressed with the quality of his paint crews who have adhered closely to the painting schedules, have conducted the preparations for painting and painted with great care using quality paint, and have cleaned-up the work sites meticulously. (It is noteworthy that some of Mark’s fine workers have stayed with him for many years.) Some projects have required repair or replacement of wood boards, and Mark has managed this as well as the painting. Mark inspects the work closely as it proceeds and has a very thorough walk-through for the final inspection. We have been very grateful to have found Mark and grateful that we have been on his client list for the past 28 years. We have recommended Mr. Paint without reservation to friends who then share our appreciation of Mark, of the company that he has built, and of the work done by his excellent team. Mr. Paint, Inc. is simply the best!

Peggy Cherry

Mark painted my duplex in Laguna Beach 15 years ago and did such a good job he was the first person I thought of when I recently wanted to have it repainted. He was honest and kind enough to tell me the back side of the property that does not face the sun does not need to be repainted. His employees showed up every day on time. They did a very thorough job prepping and also repaired damaged stucco. I could not be happier with the outcome … the new paint looks great. His crew also did a good job of cleaning up. I highly recommend Mark and his crew. They have a great work ethic and Mark’s prices are very reasonable.

Thank you!

Gary Daichendt

It has been my pleasure to work with Mr. Paint over the past 12 years. The quality of workmanship, attention to detail, and professional expertise are nothing short of outstanding. However, as I have stated to you multiple times before, the finest attribute of your company is the integrity with which you operate. As you know, I am not a builder, but having moved several times in the past 12 years, I genuinely appreciate that we can rely on you for both the large and small jobs, whether it is during the construction phase or maintenance phase. Your special expertise in dealing with the unique coastal weather conditions and selecting/applying the correct materials is also greatly appreciated.

Sam and Larry Ewing

I am happy to be a reference anytime and wish you continued success with the business. We have used Mr. Paint for a number of projects at our home, both interior and exterior. We keep coming back because Mark is great to work with; he really cares that we are fully satisfied with his work. He is responsive and honest (our last job came in under budget). His workmen are professional, courteous, efficient and neat. Highly recommended!

Laurie and Dave Lane

Hello Mark — Thank you for the opportunity to share with you our great appreciation for the excellent work performed by you and your staff on our recent house painting adventure. You came highly recommended by our contractor… and we quickly learned the reason for his enthusiastic referral. Your prompt return phone call to our inquiry was just the beginning of the most professional and pleasant painting experiences we have had. Your estimate was easy to understand as it delineated the various projects under consideration. Given that we were under a tight time frame, your ability to begin the work right away was particularly valuable to us. Then when Pablo and Daniel showed up and began their work, we were more than sold on your service. Those two gentlemen were prompt, tidy, detail oriented, friendly and professional. They wanted our feedback along the way and were more than willing to give additional attention to areas that
we felt needed it due to the newly applied stucco. Even though we made changes to the work order along the way, your estimate was right on target and we felt we more than got our money’s worth.

Thank you again, Mark, for a beautiful job!

Jim Warmington, Jr.

Mr. Paint has repainted, repaired and touched up the interior and exterior of my house, including the wood floors, walls, decks, etc for over 12 years. His team is quick, clean and respectful. When they are done, it is as of they were never there. My house looks as new now as when we moved in.

Gary & Debbie Hourihan

We have worked with Mark Whaley (Mr. Paint) for over ten years. We have been extremely impressed with the attention to details in both the interior and exterior painting of our house. From start to finish the quality of the work has been excellent. The crews have always been neat, courteous and professional. Mark Whaley is very hands on, making sure that the job is finished in a timely fashion and that you are completely satisfied with all the work.

We have never been disappointed with the work done and would highly recommend Mr. Paint to anyone who is looking for an excellent painting team! Thanks so much Mark!!!

Judy Lyons

It is my great pleasure to recommend Mark. He and his outstanding crew painted not only the outside (twice) but all the interior. In addition there were shelving and cabinets in the library,hall and one bathroom that now look like pieces of furniture. Beautiful craftsmanship and very durable. In addition to the interior the staircase was stained and painted. Again, it turned out beyond my expectations. My husband and I have known and worked with Mark for several years and hope to continue so in the future. He and his amazing crew are to be admired for their many skills (Mark can match any color!). Thanks for everything.

Mary Jandro

Hello Mark- Thank you for sending to me three of your most efficient workers. I give “high fives” to each: Juan Luis, Carmello, Eduardo. They were wonderful and accommodating men. They were clean and a wonderful job was done. I greatly appreciate it.

Pam Rychel

Hi Mark, it was a pleasure working with you. Everything looks beautiful. Thank you, thank you, thank you for fitting me in your schedule so soon. I look forward to working with you again very soon.

Thanks Mark! Your guys do such a great job!

Gus Chabre

I have used Mr. Paint to paint the exterior of my home on Newport Bay. When Mr. Paint was finished with the job the old house sparkled. I have recommended Mr. Paint to my friends and neighbors who have used him and they also have been very pleased with his work.

Leonard Lyons

Dear Mr. Whaley:

Thank you for stepping in at the last minute and taking on my master bedroom and bathroom renovation. I’m very pleased with the results. I’m impressed by the courtesy and professionalism of you and your crew. The job was completed on time, on budget and with minimal inconvenience. Alex and the other workmen were quiet, neat, and meticulous. The result is a beautiful paint job I know I will enjoy for years to come.

This is just the first of a three-phase renovation project planned for the house. I’m grateful to know a paint company I can trust and respect. I hope you will consider working with me on phases 2 and 3. In the meantime, thank you for the skill, craftsmanship, and integrity you and your team brought to my job.

Sincerely,

Leonard Lyons
