Sammamish Split-Level Ranch

This Bellevue house was repainted by Step Up Painting using MoorGard Premium exterior paint. The previous paint job was a premium job so this repaint was easy in comparison to others.

Newport Neo-Colonial

New construction needs premium paint too. The builders of this east side home did this house wrong with a criminally inadequate paint job. We spent the time necessary to fix the issues and give this house a “real” paint job.

East Seattle Raised Ranch

This Mercer Island house had a severe case of deferred maintenance. We fixed areas of rot and stabilized the old paint before painting the home with Benjamin Moore’s MoorGard.

Southend Monstrous Deck with Modern Home Attached

This Mercer Island home required a lot of special touches, from painting a monster deck, to oiling hardwoods, to varnishing soffits and painting Vinyl using a Sherwin Williams VinylSafe product.

North Redmond Deck and Porch

“ary met with me to discuss the scope and timing of the project. He and his assistant showed up exactly when scheduled and completed the project within a timely manner. We added on some additional pressure washing, and repairing and painting a small area of our bathroom ceiling. They were able to accommodate this additional request, which I really appreciated. We did perform a walk-through after they finished the work and I thought it looked great, but several days later, I was disappointed to discover a gouge in my wood floor where they dropped our lock set, and a number of deck stain splatters on the side of my house. In spite of this, the quality of the work was very good.”

Fortuna 1960’s Ranch Style

“I could not be more pleased with the service and quality we received from StepUp Painting. I emailed for a quote. Gary met me exactly on time. They gave me the best price of the 3 quotes I obtained from different contractors. They provided insurance information and coordinated well. When the weather looked wrong we set up a later start date. They pressure washed the exterior and two days later started working with 4 painters for 7 weekdays. They quickly adapted when we realized the trim color we had given them looked horrible. We picked a new color and they didn’t miss a beat. The painters were all great, they were very respectful of the house and our dog. They primed and put on two coats of high quality paint. They gave us daily update phone calls when we weren’t around. The house needed new paint for protection and we love the new look. We highly recommend Step Up painting.”

Cottage Lake Neo-Colonial

“The guys did a wonderful job, offering meticulous attention to detail. They were prompt, courteous and polite. And, we especially appreciated how they cleaned up each night before they went home. Overall it was a very good experience and we would not hesitate to recommend them or use them again ourselves.”

“In our initial meeting with Gary to start the bidding process we got a very good feeling from him, and even though their bid wasn’t the lowest we got, we decided to go with Step Up anyway because we felt that they would do the best, most professoinal job. That was a very good decision and we definitely got our money’s worth. Gary was very patient with me while I was trying to make up my mind on accent colors and bumbling it a bit. They did a very thorough job of protecting anything that wasn’t getting painted and were quick to clean up any paint that got where it wasn’t supposed to be. The first bid was just for the interior but we didn’t even consider using anyone else for the exterior by the time the interior was done. The house looks fabulous inside and out. We highly recommend them to everyone.”
